    Sean, bloody hell mate, her 21st AND her 30th? You've managed the only two birthdays that a woman really celebrates - one that she's "not a kid anymore, but I can still get seriously trashed when I want to and get up for work tomorrow" and the other celebrates "not being 21 anymore, but if I get paralytic tonight, it'll take me a week to recover". Good one!

    The side of the fridge will only work if you are a reader of things on the side of the fridge... do you spend time studying the side of the fridge as you ponder the meaningful questions in life? Hmmm, probably not - that's reserved for the loo {or in blokespeak I believe it's referred to as "the bog"} along with those magazines you read "for the articles"???????

    Hya is right - phone reminders by the dozen - every month! Plus ones to arrange a reservation for dinner, one to go shopping for a gift that is NOT a gift card, plus one to stick the champers in the freezer 2 hours before you want to pop the cork.




    Now the dogs - I'd say leaner is better for GSD's/Alsatians - when I was growing up the terms were used interchangably, but I don't know if there is a genetic difference - I don't think so though. When you say "full height" - how long is that piece of string? Many moons ago now, I was told that a "true" GSD is actually quite short and compact, not at all like the giants that were being bred then (and now too, come to think of it), so it' shard to say what the "right" weight is - but for working dogs, I think the rule of thumb is that if you run your fingers over the back of your hand, the way you can feel the bones in your hand is the way their ribs should feel under their coat - fairly easily discernable - with just a hinted indication through their coat. Obviously on a long-coated dog, you don't get the visual, so you would need to rely on going by feel. That's the rule for Boxers, and I imagine most of the larger working dog breeds would carry a similar ethos on frame.

    Was also going to comment on 21st and 30th. You are lucky to escape a firing squad, lol.
    best place for that list is at contemplation height in the toilet. I put the times tables in there for when the kids got away with avoiding the washing up.
    They both still sucked at maths tho.

    This!

    I am terrible with birthdays and I will dismiss a single reminder and promptly forget. Or remember the night before when all the shops are closed and it's too late to even buy a card.

    Its funny how we Google our problems. Its really interesting to find similar problems. Well, for birthdays, she says one day before and ask me to buy gifts and cakes. Then I do it. Well, am I lucky? I don't know but I have a great wife.

    OK, so I have a "stoopid question"...

    Are dogs left or right paw dominant, like hoomans, or are they all ambidextrous?

    Bernie our GSD, heralds from Alsatia in Germany. As a politically correct move, we ceased calling them alsations when the war was on.
    GSD's, especially long haird look massive. They are not. When Bernie is wet, for the 2 mins it takes his top coat to dry and stick out, he looks like a grey hound. Working lines are generally high drive and very active. bernie struggles to keep weight on as he's very active. Show lines are heavier.

    In 1986, my partner forgot my birthday, ive have yet to forgive him.

    Q: how can a dog get pregnant to two males? ie. carrying two litters simultaniously.

    Hey Bernie is that pregnancy question like that of the twins that were born days apart due to the release and fert of two separate eggs. Apparently they were in two separate sacs as well i don't know I'm probably way off track...

    As for the birthday thing not super special guess I was made immune to these when my own mother tended to forget mine. Have on occasion found birthday cards years after they were supposed to be given. Even hints dropped weren't taken on board. "let's have a cake for afternoon tea" mothers response "nah how about we just have biscuits". That was my 21st boy didn't her face change when my sister waltzed in with a cake singing Happy Birthday. LOL she still gets ribbed about forgetting but she does it to everyone.

    My daughter reminds my hubby about birthdays, so sean when your kids get old enough you should be right. She has also started to send cards and pressies down the coast to her grandfather so he can give them to nanny so she doesnt miss out.
    Katie also uses the toilet door for notes.....everytime her exams are coming up we have all sorts of notes on the door..........ive learnt so much about the body this year(she is studing nursing).

    I have no idea lol But when I ask Brody to shake hands 90% of the time he will do it with his right paw, so I'm guessing he is right side dominant.
