Sit, stay, roly poly

Mollydog training is going on apace. This evening she did 1) down, 2) stay, 3) roly poly, 4) shake paws, 5) touch (ring your bell ball), 6) go across the room and ring your bell ball, 7) go away, ring your bell ball and do a sit, down, stay, come... :-)

I forgot one of my resolutions in my resolutions post: to buy local meat from the butcher rather than random meat shipped from godknowswhere at the supermarket. I did that today, and it was cheap and very nice.

I have also ordered some seeds for my vegetable-growing resolution, but I need to get some ground cover fabric, some bark and possibly some paving slabs.

I *have* remembered to take my phone. Mostly. Unfortunately, I've discovered that one reason I stopped bothering to take my phone is that as soon as you drop below the level of the main road in the Tamar Valley, the signal completely disappears. Also, that Polo has a tendency to unplug my charger without mentioning it and plug his phone in, so my phone is slowly dying but I am not aware of it.

Shiny

I thought the term 'shiny' to mean 'good, fine' was coined in Firefly.

But I just turned over to the 'A' team and heard it used in exactly that sense by Hannibal. So it is older than I thought. Interesting.
