morriscsps Awww! The evening news ended their newscast with some therapy dogs going into the local hospitals to give the victims and the staff some doggie lovings... Two huge fluffy Golden Retrievers.

You just got to love the Goldens. However I constantly am baffled as to how the owners control the loose hair long enough to go into a hospital. Whenever I meet a Golden, there is always a halo of loose hair following it.

I love that there are therapy dogs.

sandypaws Oh, Marina. What a dreadful way to live. I can't even begin to imagine the fear you felt all those years. Thank God you made it through all of that and a stronger person, I bet.

I want to catch a golden fish to ask her for two wishes. First wish - all weapons to dissapear! Second wish - all money to disapear! Without money and weapons our planet would change dramatically!

But you know, I don't watch, cause it's so depressing' My take is journalists would love to report these tragic events around the world, but people in general don't want to hear it. And if they do want to know they want a headline-- not a 10,000 word report or an indepth documentary. They just don't pull in ratings like LIVE coverage of a tragedy here in America.

As a Bostonian, this hit home. And maybe it is due to my accidents on Friday, but I am just numb from the 24/7 coverage on every station. So much "news" and so little information.
May morning 1995. I just had shower and prapared braekfast, put a chair and small table on my balcony to have breakfast outside. But suddenly I heard strong whistling sound and saw missile flying just above my building. Then another one! And another one! The first missile hit national theatre, killed some ballet dancers and badly injured others. Second missile hit children hospital - a lot od injured kids and those on operating tables nearly died because missile hit hospital power station. Third one hit police station and nearly missed american embassy! That is not all - those missiles were cluster bombs and whole downtown Zagreb was full of dangerous explosive stuff for days! This is something that I will never forget! Images are so vivid! This morning I have put that same table on my balcony to have breakfast and everything came back!

Rita, I totally understand. That was an especially hard to watch show (but proof that someone covers this stuff) I can't watch anything hard when I get home. I engage in madmen, idol, love it or list it, pawn stars, downton, you get it... Nothing i need to think or feel about. But I can't talk tv with people I work with except madmen and downton...those pass the nose in the air muster) I often wonder if I would be happier if I had a different career.

I did the same thing. Let it be a whack-a-doodle with no Muslim/religious /extremist terrorist connections.

Of course, a whack-a-doodle is just as bad.
