About meMiddle-aged dog trainer and gentlewoman farmer wannabe. Reads too many books. Spends too much time on the computer. I am a cynic, cook, gardener, hiker and environmental scientist.

About my libraryJust a cross-section of the pile-o-stuff I've collected and feel compelled to keep adding on to.

I will definitely need to check out the nursing home cookbook! Thanks for the tip. At face value, it reminds me of a book that a Scottish woman that I worked with let me borrow, which she described as "The Joy of Cooking in Scotland, but way older." There were a lot of recipes that largely involved boiling things for a very very long time and then ending with the phrase, "this is a good dish for the infirm."
Your review of Bull Cook and Authentic Historical Recipes and Practices is about as concise and accurate of a description for that book that I could possibly imagine. Well, done. I love that book and you are spot on.
Yay!! Thank you for the referral here! WOOT!
I checked out your blog and enjoyed Nancy Schutt's paintings in the video.

I've met people who've worked at McMurto. It's really isolated. When I'm in antarctica I'm around the peninsula which is where all the penguins are (except the emperor). I've visited Palmer station and also Vernaski, a Ukranian station where they serve shots of homemade vodka.

I married into a weimaraner family though we lost him to cancer this past winter. He was a particularly careful dog and I wonder if that's typical of the breed. It's not the right time to get another while I'm traveling a lot and my husband is working full time days.

How many dogs do you keep and what are your favorite breeds? Are you a full time dog trainer? Seems like it would be a very cool job.
Hey Smartdogs,

Your member name caught my eye- I thought this person would have some good dogs books. I think you must be the LT mother lode.

I am currently dogless though have some good friends with a puppy which is sort of like enjoying a grandchild- you can send them home after awhile.

I'm always interested in reading about animals and the way they think and will find Vicki Hearne's Animal Happiness at some point.

thnx much!
