I need a 2" diameter Drum & Feathers embroidered patch that could be sewn on an article of clothing. Do they sell these separately or do I have to buy something like a hat, cut it out and sew it on. Here to date searches at the Utah campus store and inquiries to Utah Athletic Marketing Dept have fallen on deaf ears.
Quest for ATT Uverse failed, they only deliver internet to my home, yet my son gets it a 1/2 mile away. They offered to bundle with Direct TV, which was a non-starter.
Time Warner has the cable franchise for my City, don't want to go there.
So I'm down to Dish. Some people were complaining about HD and DVR boxes. Straight up, I don't care about recording anything. I just want to watch college football live in HD. Can I get that with Dish? What level of service do I need to get PAC 12 network. I could careless about the rest of the garbage on cable.
I need internet and they offer bundles. Are they offering via TW cable? What speed do I need for occasional streaming of a movie say off Netflix or whomever?
Netflix started this, but their business model sucks from an investor standpoint (they don't make any money and they're largely reliant on other's content), but users love them. Content drives everything and if ESPN wants full value for their content, then they should flip the switch and eliminate the middle man cable and satellite guys who are merely distributors. Streaming has created minimal barriers to entry (another reason why the Netflix business model sucks), so the power will shift even more to the content providers who will create their own networks without reliance on the cable and satellite middlemen. IMO this is how ala carte programming will become reality.
This happened two Thursdays ago, but I didn't post anything while the Board was mourning Millie. After reading of Ute744's thread on the passing of his dog, I wanted to post something positive about on of my dogs.
We have two English Springers, Coventry (liver & white) and Webley (black & white). As we're now empty nesters, these are our kids. Their energy inspires us to get all of us out hiking, as we all need it.
The wife and I were on one of our typical road trips, this one to attend a memorial in Williams, OR for the passing of one her friends. We always prefer the scenic route, so we took 395 up the the eastern Sierra which would allow me to throw in a little fly fishing in along the way.
We decided to fish Kirman Lake, which is at 7,100' near the base of Sonora Pass. It's a 3 mile hike in from the trail head at Hwy 108, itself about 1/2 mile from Hwy 395. As usual, I packed my float tube, fins and waders into my internal frame back pack; the wife stubbornly insisting on using her old Kelty external frame pack. Most guys simply inflate their float tube at the trail head and put it on their back like a pack. I just never figured out what they do with the rest of their gear.
The hike was uneventful with the dogs leading the way. I got out on the lake and immediately saw some nice fish cruising the shallows. Meanwhile, my wife decided to go sit on a boulder up on the hillside over looking the lake and do her knitting. The dogs went with her. Next thing I know, my wife is running down the bank yelling. When I finally make her out, she's yelling that Webley had been bit by a rattle snake. Oh well, so much for fishing, now the adventure started.
I kicked in and shed my gear. I packed all my gear into the pack and then attempted to carry the 64 lb Webley in my arms. I got about 1/4 mile and came to the realization that was not going to work. We let Webley walk awhile, but he slowed and I knew he would not make it out on his own. I pulled everything out of the pack, gave my wife the fins and waders and tied the float tube on the outside of my pack and stuffed Webley in and went for it. It was a painful haul, but I'm sure Webley was suffering more by all his squirming. I only saw trail. I asked my wife what it looked like and she said rather silly with a dog's head popped out of my pack and his eyes were as wide as saucers. I made it down to the truck in under an hour.
We had cell reception at the junction of 108 and 395, so I had my wife call 911. They checked with the Sheriff and we were advised to head north to Gardnerville, NV, which had veterinary hospitals. We called ahead so they would have anti-venin waiting. We made it to the vet in a little over 2 hours from the bite. They said the anti-venin is worthless after 6 hours. They got him on an IV and the anti-venin, but he would have to stay the weekend. We saw Webley the next morning before we left for Williams. He was pretty lethargic from the pain killers, but otherwise doing well. We picked him up Monday and he looked even better. I told my wife, we'd know that he was fully recovered when he started his nightly dry humping of Coventry before going to bed. Let's just say he's back with a vengeance.
When my wife checked into the Motel that first night, she recounted the story and the attendant asked her if she killed the snake. My wife said no way, just watched it safely slither away. Last thing she wanted was to get bit by a snake, leaving her wondering who I would save. If my back could talk, you know the answer.
Webley's thigh was swollen to twice it's normal size. The edema later moved to his belly and for awhile he looked like he was pregnant with a bloody belly. That swelling quickly subsided and other than two dime sized spots of necrossed (dead) tissue at the bite wound, there was no other lasting damage. Both dogs are trained in snake avoidance which worked earlier this year. However, snake avoidance doesn't work when the dog parachutes in on one. Neither dog was vaccinated against snake bites as our local vets do not like the side effects. The vet up in Gardnerville vaccinates over 500 dogs a year and said our vet probably never sees a snake bite (one has). The vet in Gardnerville says 1) vaccinate, 2) snake avoidance, 3) always carry two Benadryl for each dog.
Three women friends, one in a casual relationship, one engaged to be married and a long-time wife, met for drinks after work.
The conversation eventually drifted towards how best to spice up their sex lives.
After much discussion, they decided to surprise their men by engaging in some S&M role playing.
The following week they met up again to compare notes.
Sipping her drink, the single girl leered and said, 'Last Friday at the end of the work day I went to my boyfriend's office wearing a leather coat. When all the other people had left, I slipped out of it and all I had on was a leather bodice, black stockings and stiletto heels. He was so aroused that we made mad passionate love on his desk right then and there!'
The engaged woman giggled and said, 'That's pretty much my story! When my fiance got home last Friday, he found me waiting for him in a black mask, leather bodice, black hose and stiletto pumps. He was so turned on that we not only
made love all night, he wants to move up our wedding date!
The married woman put her glass down and said, 'I did a lot of planning. I made arrangements for the kids to stay over at Grandma's. I took a long scented-oil bath and then put on my best perfume. I slipped into a tight leather bodice, a black garter belt, black stockings and six-inch stilettos. I finished it off with a black mask, ready for action.
When my husband got home from work, he grabbed a beer and the remote, sat down and yelled,
