Thanks to everyone who shopped through the Althouse Amazon portal.

I use a water timer and system of hoses like in the movie Brazil to provide water for all my dogs in their various kennels and around my property. I have those oblong plastic planters distributed around as water bowls and very 6 hours the timer sends water to them to wash them out and refill them. It works great, the dogs always have fresh water wherever they might be and I never have to even think about it.

I wish I could automate feeding them, and probably could with kibble, but I feed my dogs raw meat and bones, so the engineering would be NASA level. I suppose I could just have live chickens running around loose as food, and feed them automatically. It's an idea that's just in it's early stages right now.

Althouse might be my favorite political blog. Ann's way of taking apart quotes is the most consistently unique and entertaining political commentary. I envy her colleagues and friends that get to have coffee with her.

I'm glad this blog makes a few dollars. She deserves it.

Well Meade, Thanks. I ordered on May 16, but the answer is they show up on your May 17 report...

Meade said...

Thanks, SGT. And special thanks to whoever it was who took my advice and bought not just one but three (3) copies of "Mutterings" by Clark Eugene Sutton.

A hose for all the hosers who shop here.

Sorry, Ann and Meade, but the Amazon item my mom recommended to me this morning was a free Kindle download -- Duane Campbell's Best of "Green Space." Free for today, anyway; I think back to non-free tomorrow. It didn't go through the Althouse portal. I thought sending you guys a fraction of $0.00 would be a bit insulting.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

Dang, bagoh20, how many dogs are talking about here?

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

...are we talking about here.

bagoh20 said...

Michelle, I usually have about 5-7 at my house at any one time. I have nice heated kennels in my garage with outdoor runs for some of them, and some stay in the house, But I never have to worry about them having fresh water. It's low-tech automation.

Seriously you guys, I would never order through this link because, although you don't identify the purchaser, you do list the products bought.

I find that creepy in the extreme. You appear to get some kind of pleasure out of listing peoples' purchases for you & others to examine. I guess in a way, it will get us ready for Big Brother when in the future all our purchases are published along with our names & addresses. And perhaps you can find a way to cash in on publishing electronic medical records - with names removed of course - so you can make some dough off Obamacare.

Anyway, as a long-time lurker, it makes me feel completely different about the blog proprietors. But it appears that you have enough regulars coming back and purchasing money clips, calendula shampoo & body wash, wart remover, manila folders and such that you do not need me.

My lord, Ms Bodine, what on Earth do you buy that that could embarrass you that much? There are thousands of Althouse readers, so the summary amounts to little more than a random list of products available on Amazon with some bias toward those that readers like.

You can read or comment on Althouse and buy through Amazon without your purchase showing up if you just don't use the portal here. Completely your choice. I've gotten some good ideas from the listing, and it's a great way to pay back Althouse for her work.

And the other great thing is that when she suggests that her commenters are indecent homophobic racists who are tone deaf to the female mind, you can punish her like I do by finding the most expensive thing sold On Amazon, buy 10 them and don't use the portal while shaking your fist in the air. It's very satisfying.
