I'll be taking my two Kelpies to sheep herding class this morning :-))
They just love it - I think since they were bred for it, actually herding might excite lots of neural and emotional activity for them. It's quite physically demanding, too.
Gold is up again - closing in on $700. I like the lack of press attention. Maybe this is the big one?
Countrywide laying off people - uh, weren't they bragging about hiring to gain "market share" as few weeks ago?
Hmm, that reminds me. Here's my "never trust" list:
Never trust a man with a very good tan in a suit ;-))))
Never trust a company that is building a new, gold plated corporate HQ.
Never trust a company with a headquarters in NY, NJ or CT that is not in finance or media or advertising. The CEO is more interested in his social life than the business.
There might be more, but that's all I can remember now.
Miners are up on takeover talks.
PS: back for a while. Sky & Krypto are really getting good at the sheep herding. Sky was reading how the sheep turned their heads and then moved to cut them off. He was using a clever serpentine motion to push the "mob" around. And he's learning his circling commands - they need to know the clockwise command "go by" and the counterclockwise command "way". Sky's actually a bit better than Krypto. They both did the "down" at a distance while distracted, too.
