You can see that in a lot of early 20th century photos of dogs. That a lot of the pronounced features we associated with them were not as much. Pugs, Bull terriers with their distinctive head. Even German shepherds have undergone changes. They're now a "large" dog where they were once a medium dog.

The one opposite the watch, usually. For the most formal occasions one would attach the watch fob to the pug's collar and carry them in the same pocket.

58 I can't say dogs can tell the time but when something amazing has happened at least once at a particular time they are certain it's going to happen at that same time again every day.

One time my wife bought a door-holder-opener, not a doorstop, but a big stuffed bunny doll with the bunny-bottom filled with sand. So the dog came prancing through this doorway and took a spit-take at the bunny doll and almost tripped. She came back and gave it a good sniffing.

I dunno about cats' appreciation of time, but they are certainly alert to any change in their environment. Whenever something or someone new comes into their homes, cats are immediately aware of it and investigate. Marie-Antoinette the smart black cat, for instance, regarded anything new as something new to manipulate or turn to her advantage (a new human was "Someone else to worship me!").

Even a cat who is not terribly bright in most departments will be aware of a change and will react to it, either checking it out or running from it.

108 I like the tones in this work. They're nice, neutral browns and tans. Even the gold in the watch chain is washed out to blend in. The brushwork is soft and sketchy. The work has a cozy charm to it.

The silver in the watch and key is the only thing that's out of place really. Silver is a cool gray, where the overall painting is warm. It's good that the silver is limited to small forms. It keeps the objects from looking "odd."

112 That artist painted a lot of animals. This is what he said about painting animals in an interview which he gave:

I have always been a great lover of dogs but I have worked at them so much that I've grown tired of having them about me. However, you can never paint a dog unless you are fond of it. I never work from a dog without the assistance of a man who is well acquainted with animals ... Collies, I think, are the most restless dogs ...greyhounds are also very restless, and so are fox terriers ... The only way to paint wild animals is to gradually accumulate a large number of studies and a great knowledge of the animal itself, before you can paint its picture ... I paint from dead animals as well as from live ones. I have had the body of a fine lioness in my studio ... I have done a great deal of work in the dissecting rooms at the Zoological Gardens from time to time.[3]

WHY is no one calling out the jackass politicians for ignoring the protection previous infection with the 'vid gives people? The only person I see doing it is Instapundit. He links a study with this quote today:

One finding of this study is that there appears to be a hierarchy in infectiousness of SARS-CoV-2 infections, where primary infections in unvaccinated persons are most infectious, followed by BNT162b2 breakthrough infections, mRNA-1273 breakthrough infections, and finally reinfections in unvaccinated persons. Strikingly, this hierarchy is the mirror image of the hierarchy observed in the efficacy against acquisition of infection. In our earlier studies on these national cohorts in Qatar, we found that those vaccinated with BNT162b2 had (relatively) the lowest protection against acquisition of infection (at 75% against the B.1.351 (Beta) variant4,11 that dominated incidence since the onset of vaccination19,20), while protection against acquisition of infection was considerably higher among those vaccinated with mRNA-12735 and those with prior infection.

I'm the least likely to get or spread this, and they still act like I need the jab.

126 Speaking of cats, I have a question for people handier than I and familiar with glass.

My office is an addition and the door between the addition and the main house is a former exterior door and it is made of glass (as is the stationary panel next to it). The addition has its own A/C and it has to work a lot harder if I leave that door open, since it's a PTAC and is about a yard from the door and the addition and main house systems invariably are not in sync.

The problem is that the cat likes to come and go and I end up having to open and close the door quite often. I could leave it locked out while I am in there, of course, but I like having it around. Is it possible to cut a chunk out of a double-pane exterior window to install a cat flap?

It's easy to make a straight cut on glass, but very difficult to make an interior angle without cracking it or scoring the glass.

Taking out a chuck probably could be done, but you'd probably go through a few pieces of glass before it worked.

Yeah, which isn't too big a deal. It is interior on both sides and the glass alone doesn't have to hold out the elements anymore. But it sounds overall like this has a high risk of breaking things even if I hire it out, and I am certain that the door and its associated panel are catastrophically expensive. I think I'll just keep opening and closing it as needed.

A prominent Dem politician could rape the Pope on Sunday morning, in the nave of St. Peter's Basilica, and nobody in the media or Uniparty or the Vatican would say an unkind word about the little peccadillo.

The fact that these women came forward at all, let alone the fact that their flimsy sob-stories about a made man like Cuomo got traction, means this was a Party-sanctioned hit from the word "go."

Double pane you cannot. In-between the double pane is a square tubing filled with silica that absorbs moisture. The double pane is "glued" with butyl to make it one unit.

If it is a slider, with a stationary panel, it is most likely tempered. In the event you come home drunk and fall and try to brace yourself it will shatter into billion of pieces. Likewise, trying to cut it will also cause it to shatter. Even if it didn't shatter, the "sealed" (formerly) would cause air to come in and you would end up with "fogged" windows.

Chris Cuomo didn't say anything about his brother on CNN Tuesday night, but anyone listening to his daily radio show on SiriusXM has heard his feelings in recent weeks. He had been steeling himself for the AG report... (1/2)

On the air, Chris has sounded protective of his brother at times; bitter about the political warfare at other times; and detached from it at other other times. Overall, I'd say, he sounded realistic about life as a member of his famous political family.

They were the first in TV SF with that naming convention, I think. Always in TV SF before, before, a planet was simply named with no indication of what star it belonged to. With this narrative detail, ST:TOS established that the characters were traveling to actual stars in our galaxy.

Forbidden Planet did it with "Altair IV," and that may have been what inspired Roddenberry & Co.

I think "lost control of steering" may be a nautical expression for "we're not in control of the ship any more." Sort of like, when Columbia burned in, my ex-wife who worked at NASA got a call that we lost communication with the shuttle on reentry, which had a much more grim meaning.

Posted by: Joe Mannix


-----
I've done a fair amount of glass cutting. What you describe is not impossible, but it's pretty hard because glass cutting will generally follow straight lines. You could put a 90 degree angle in it, but once you start the "break" that break is will most likely go straight.

There are glass drill bits and glass wheels that would work like a router. You could probably do a cut like that, but then you won't have an exact fit. Perhaps that's preferable, not sure.

Instead of cutting "cutting a chunk out" you could cut it straight across horizontally into lower and upper halves. Thus the cuts would be straight and the entire length of the cut could be your hinge

347 I'd program a series of short bursts at first (since I think water-jet cutters are either off or on at full blast with no throttle), sort of like peck-drilling

Instead, have a new panel of glass fabricated for the "sidelight" next to the door. Make it about 14" shorter than the one in there now. Install it with the top at the same height, and then install a pet-flap under the new glass panel in the bottom of of the sidelight opening.

Simple, and it'll look like ya planned it that way from the start.

I saw that, thank you. That was the reps, not the senators.

Anyway, I'm dropping the subject. I'll just say I find is disheartening to see so many putative "republicans" embracing the Democrat "insurrection" narrative. Further proof, if any were needed, that we are not voting out of this.

p.s. - sent you an e-mail, CBD, but don't know if it's out of date.

442 One positive out of DeCommio's vaccine passports in NYC is that when the restaurants and gyms denying service to the unjabbed become clusters of 'Rona infections, they won't be able to blame those who didn't get the vax.

Posted by: kallisto at August 04, 2021 10:17 AM (DJFLF)

443 I don't know why it didn't occur to me before, given that it was just as evident - the left isn't just in a panic to get people jabbed prior to an arbitrary point in time in order to facilitate some general plot.

They're in a hurry because they want to get people jabbed prior to the availability of conventional vaccines slated to come on line in the fall. The giveaway was the obsessive mention of mRNA specifically in recent CDC materials.

Tinfoil hat or not, it's now public knowledge that contracts related to developing the mRNA vaccines started as early as Dec 2019, and involved people that we now know were in on funding the WIV research and later worked to cover it up. It's not a stretch to think that perhaps those in a position to know how the virus was engineered were also in a position to direct which element was used for the jab.

453 That would make the space on the other side dark. I can see all the way across through windows, and that's nice. I may just keep bounding up and down. It isn't exactly a great inconvenience.

Take the door to a glass shop. Have them remove the double pane, or sealed unit, as the case may be. Replace it with a single pane, since it's now an interior door, but use a shorter piece to leave about 15" of plywood at the bottom to install the cat flap.

If the glass removed is not a sealed unit, it could be cut shorter. Cutting a square hole in glass would be tough.

458 I've heard of Argon being in windows as well. Just don't know if there's some weird EPA laws about releasing it by cutting the pane.
Posted by: Sponge - Saying Ashli Babbitt at August 04, 2021 09:15 AM (Zz0t1)

Argon is an inert gas, and we get it by distilling liquid air. So no harm in releasing it again. The only way argon could harm you is if it almost completely displaced the oxygen in a confined space.
