Wow, a list of sevens. That sounds tough. I'm glad you didn't tag me. Good list. The one brought back memories of my waitressing days.

squirl, I didn't know you were back home or I would have. Everybody else I know has already been tagged.

HTML is pretty easy. You just need someone with patience to sit down with you for an hour. I'd do it if I were there. I'm sure you'll pick it up right away.

It's really simple programming. It's nothing but tags. If you don't know anyone there who's willing to teach you, let me know and I'll teach you the basics and once you know them, it will be easy to learn from there.

I still don't know HTML really - but if you have something on your machine like Frontpage - it's a good way to learn the common codes. You can create a page in a way similar to how you would in Word - and then click the HTML tab and it will show you what it looks like in HTML. It's easier for me to learn this way since I can associate the code with what it really looks like.

Great list. I might steal it.

You can train dogs? Wow, I should have you flown out here!

Is Neil Diamond a joke? :-)

At 8/23/2005 5:56 PM, Blogger tshsmom said...

ZS, my husband knows HTML, but I get sick of waiting for him to put stuff on my blog. Thanks for the offer!

Laura, now THAT sounds like something I could handle!
BTW, feel free to steal this, especially since ZS ALREADY tagged you!hehe

Jason, feel free to ask about any problems you're having. Didn't you say that you have Springers? Sporting dogs are my specialty! Watch the Dog Whisperer. He trains the same way I do. In the meantime...just pretend that they're toddlers. You can't turn your back on them for a second and for heaven's sake, don't laugh when they do something naughty!! I always told my kids that God made puppies cute so you wouldn't kill them in their first year!

ZF, 35 years ago, Neil Diamond was a HOTTIE!!(but then, so was I *sigh*)

Let me know if you have luck with the toilet seat thing. :-P

At 8/23/2005 6:56 PM, Blogger tshsmom said...

Jen, after ALL this time you'd think I'd give up! hehe

At 8/23/2005 8:32 PM, Blogger Bridget Jones said...

That's adorable (hubby). Your lists actually made me melt. Thanks for a really satisfying read!!

Promise not to tag you again, well, not for a long time!!


p.s. laughing at circular saw.....

Also with regards to puppies - positive reinforcement over punishment all the way. It works with humans too! Reward them when they do something you like, no matter how tiny or insignificant. I like "Jump and Sit Bits" since they're small (about the size of a dime) so they don't get all fat on treats.

At 8/24/2005 1:36 PM, Blogger tshsmom said...

Absolutely Laura!
When I'm housebreaking a puppy, I always hope nobody's hanging around my back yard in the middle of the night. I'm standing out there in my nightie, in -20 degrees, waiting for a puppy to pee, so I can praise him. Gotta have a screw loose!

At 8/24/2005 1:59 PM, Blogger Jason said...

Yeah, they're Springers, but it seems more like they're mountain goats the way they climb and chew. I recently got that video but haven't watched it. They've had professional training and are getting better, but the truth is we've been so consumed with house stuff (currently there is no kitchen and only one of two bathrooms) we just aren't spending the time needed to reinforce training. Definitely a good thing they're cute, and I think they're a lot harder than my toddlers!

Jason, I've spent more sleepless nights with our puppies than with our kids! My kids both slept through the night from their first night home from the hospital. Our puppies would wake @ 3 a.m and be ready to tackle the day. Good thing they were CUTE!!
It's especially hard for you with your house all torn up. Our dog's routines are all screwed up and we only have ONE room torn apart. Plus, a torn up house becomes ONE BIG CHEWTOY to a puppy. Buy LOTS of rawhide chews and give them to the pups when they're chewing on the wrong stuff. Tell them NO first, then substitute the rawhide for what they're chewing. Your kids should be able to help with this part.
The ONLY problem with professional training is that the trainers become the pack leader instead of you and your wife. Assert your authority! You're TOP DOG of your household, at least as far as the dogs are concerned ;).

WHO is Pete Duel?? I'm gonna Google him in a minute.
I know that you'll accomplish everything on your lists EXCEPT for the toilet seat thing, that'll never happen. Somebody out there needs to design a toilet seat that automatically raises and lowers, or else make Man/Woman settings for the toilet!

Just passing through, cool blog by the way.

At 8/25/2005 6:26 PM, Blogger SME said...

Well, I should've KNOWN who Pete Duel is. Heehee.

forget abou the toilet seat one.

And i suppose anyone who as a teenager thought Gladys Knight was hot can't comment on Neil Diamond.

I think I can help you on two of your seven things to do before you die. I'm a service brat living at my 34th address. All rooms are clean at the same time when you make your final check before locking the door behind you forever.

Regarding toilet seats, you have already won. I have been in many fights, physical and otherwise, and have an impressive success record. That is because I am willing to be very flexible in my definition of victory.

You have taught them how to put the toilet seats down.

Now the problem is that they view this training as being like CPR. You learn it, you review it, you get recertification training, but you don't use what you have learned unless it is a matter of life and death.
