I Was Totally Clueless As To How Pervasive & Problematic ‘Puppy Mills’ Have Become In ‘Amish’ PA & OH.
Of course I had heard of ‘puppy mills’ & knew of their existence. But, until a few days ago I had NO IDEA how widespread they were & what a serious problem they represent.
Yes, with the sad passing of ‘Maya’ we were on the market for a new dog. Though we, i.e., the adults, wanted to wait a few weeks (i.e., at least till February), not so with the kids — especially the 14-year old.
‘Maya’ was our BIG dog & I wanted another BIG dog. I like BIG dogs & have had BIG dogs, without break, for the last 30+ years.
We, or at least the 14-year old & I, talked ourselves out of another ‘Golden‘. We had had enough Goldens over the years. Wanted something different.
So, we started looking at ‘Bernese Mountain Dogs‘, “St. Bernard’s” & ‘Newfoundlands‘.
All the puppies we could find were in Pennsylvania or Ohio. That is when we started doing some research.
We nearly got burned yesterday. A lady I spoke to, in PA, was actually in the ‘Horrible Hundred’ list! YIKES.
As I keep of telling you, I always Google people before I start dealing with them. BINGO.
So, just giving you a heads up.
It has become a business. Dogs as livestock & some will argue that that is what they are.
But, I just wanted to give YOU a head’s up.
US Postal Service ‘Certified Mail’ Is Beyond A Joke — 12-Days To Deliver A Letter N.H. To Pennsylvania!
The problem here was that I sent it Certified.
IF I had sent it ‘normal’ it would have got there in 3-days.
The guy at the Post Office promised 3-day. He never said 12-days.
I used to use Certified quite a bit. Haven’t in a longtime. Something has changed, and not for the better.
Good job this was not a super-urgent letter. But, I am NOT amused.
So, you have been warned.
This is getting out-of-hand and unacceptable. Yesterday vandalism and then this. You cannot pin this on all Catholic priests and you definitely cannot go around attacking poor, innocent priests at random.
Yes, people are frustrated and angry, BUT things have to be done non-violently, through the proper channels and without any crimes being committed, e.g., vandalism.
I would definitely like to see more peaceful protests in churches. They, the Church, must understand that enough is enough. This has gone too, too far.
Maybe the pope, acting dumber than usual, will start paying some attention. Going to Ireland, this weekend, will focus his now increasingly addled mind.
If you want to get it from, PLUS watch the video at,
the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office:
This is beyond shocking — despite us all having had nearly 20-years to get inured to this pedohilia by Catholic clerics. This is sickening. This is the ONE ASPECT of the Vatican and the current popes that I find incredibly unpleasant and makes me very mad.
Just can’t understand HOW people let the churches, The Church, prelates, the Vatican and the Pope get away with it.
Irony of ironies: two of the popes implicated are NOW SAINTS! Can you really be a Saint if you condoned child sex abuse? Doesn’t that make a joke of what a Saint is supposed to be? Where were the Saints when it came to protecting these innocent, little children?

This is frigging disturbing and creepy. What is wrong with these people.
This comes across as another Moonie cult. Some of these people. Talk about penile envy.
I just don’t know. I despair.
This on the same day that “Dick’s Sporting Goods” showed that you always have the option of doing the right thing.
Just wanted to make sure that YOU saw this in case, unlike I, you do NOT read the U.K. “Daily Mail” (online) a FEW times a day.

I stopped on the way back. It could be the TWIN of the XJ8 I own.
Asking $7,500. I would suspect you could get it for $7,000. Not a bad price. I am, however, NOT tempted. I can afford it … SMILE.
But not sure I want two identical XJ8s right now. One would have to be in storage and that is waste.
They had run out of business cards. So the KINDLY Mr. Sargent, who runs the place, turned around and said “take a picture of my back”. I did.
So call … and ask for Mr. Sargent and say that the “Brown Guy” sent you. SMILE.
I can’t tell you how good it feels to own and drive a XJ8 like that. Not as good as sex but it sure comes close. SMILE.
