Re: How do you stop a dog from killing chickens?

If your dog kills a chicken, tie the dead chicken to him and make him wear it for punishment. Nah, I was trying to be funny with that one.

Re: Contagion

I saw the movie and liked it tremendously..One thing I noticed while watching the movie...after the 1st ten minutes the theater was as quiet as a tomb. No sound at all. Everyone was riveted to the screen. No texting,no giggling-nothing.

Re: Today, my horse ran away.
