Well, I made a deal with the kid ...get straight A's all year in the tough new school and you get a puppy of your choice... Kid came through. Bribery is an effective parenting technique. Puppy Love

When I was like 10, to get a Sega, I had to get straight As, my purple belt in Karate, and have the Bach A minor concerto learned and memorized, all before April (deal was made in September). Well, I don't think I ever used it by the time I was 12. Parents 1 me 0.

That's a pretty "disagreeable" post

Agreeable = the recently banned "arrogant", but since he's ranking on his good buddy PHV I'll let him stay a while.

sounds like a good investment on your parents side. I have been using bribary to toilet train my son, but I hadn't thought about when it will end, or not.

That dog is not very trad.

Actually, it is very cute and I'm very picky about dogs.

What's a trad dog anyway? I believe Horace can weigh in on the subject.

Trad dog..... frankly, while I suppose I'm fairly trad it is not a 'planned' thing, it just kinda happens in summertime.

As to the pooch... she's a Cavalier king Charles ... which is way too much name for a toy version of a Cocker Spaniel really.

Thus far an excellent pooch. Unintentionally troublesome when wide awake but sleeping at my feet the rest of the time.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
