You may neither know or care, but this is a very brilliant concept.

Give your horse a comfort zone and let him work within it. The Equuschick likes this idea. For a younger horse give him a wider zone, as he gains experience narrow his zone but continue to allow him to work within this zone where he is comfortable and you are happy. If he is working within the designated zone, leave him be and let him work. Find a zone, put him in it, back off.

The Equuschick’s instructor finally explained this concept to her in small enough words that she could understand, and she loves this idea and now it is her pet theory. (No pun intended.) She is enchanted.

Have you ever wondered…

…What the viewpoint of a horse is from a seven year old little boy? Well, now you know.

New Guinea Singing Dog

This is a picture of a new guinea singing dog that I took a few weeks ago. They only sing under stress, though, so we didn’t get to hear them singing. I suppose that’s a good thing, but I still would have like to heard them.

"A Private Couple"

So says Joe Wilson’s lawyer about Wilson and his wife. They did not choose to be in the public spotlight. As Byron York noted on NRO a few months ago, a photograph of this privacy minded couple appeared in Vanity Fair. No, not the one where Mrs. Privacy posed on the cover in sunglasses and a scarf, but another one- no scarf, no sunglasses. Click on the link to see it.
“the photo was taken at the magazine’s annual dinner for the Tribeca Film Festival, and Plame’s and Wilson’s fellow guests included Robert deNiro, Nicole Kidman, Barry Diller, Willem Dafoe, John McEnroe, and many others. Plame’s and Wilson’s photo appears below a shot of David Bowie and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.”

Joe Wilson, that ever so private person, chose to promote a tissue of lies- therefore he did choose a spotlight. He continues to tell falsehoods every time he appears on t.v.
As the NRO media blog notes, this paragraph ought to accompany every article about him, but doesn’t:

A bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report on pre-war intelligence revealed that Wilson’s wife had recommended him for the trip, which Wilson had denied. It also revealed that Wilson reported to the CIA that the former prime minister of Niger told him that Saddam Hussein sought expanded commercial ties with Niger in the late 1990s. The former prime minister told Wilson that he took this as an attempt to buy uranium, and refused to enter into a deal.

Words mean things.

One of my classmates has just announced in an essay that Hitler had anti-semantic views. We’re rather inclined to believe it’s the classmate that has this problem.
