Re: Elephant cries after being released.

The video is way too heart breaking Ellen. Sometimes it's not cruelty that moves us to sobs but instead it happens when we witness happiness, pure joy; that's heightened immeasurably by the pain and heartbreak that we know preceded it. I literally cried all day when I learned that Jenny the younger...

Re: Saturday mornings with kids and without. FUNNY!

The ironic part of this is that until you've had the kid Saturday morning, you can't truly appreciate the without kids Saturday morning! However, I would have never forgone those mornings - I have two great adult kids and a granddaughter to make Saturday mornings fun again - not to mention an early...

Re: Elephant cries after being released.

Thank you to thecat and Gypsy for explaining. However, I am somewhat perplexed by some comments about the video being too heartbreaking to watch. The video I saw was terribly heartwarmimg. It showed two elephants reunited after decades. They bent bars trying to get closer to each other and "emb...

Re: Elephant cries after being released.

I saw this earlier today and it really touched me. I have been fascinated by elephants for many years and find their intelligence & ability to express emotion to be amazing. I am so very happy for this particular guy and hope he lives many more years enjoying his freedom. The way humankind deva...

Re: Paging Smitcompton

Funny. This whole thing is about patience, I know it for a fact. Doesn't mean I particularly like it, but it's all about growing patience. And the facinating thing is, it's working. If this had happened a few months ago, I'd have flipped. Now? It's like, ok, he's gonna have to come back and fix it. ...

Re: My New KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Yes, I really do love this mixer both for what it can do and for how it looks. I am fortunate that I do have counter space for it but I like things clean looking - not piled up. I was afraid it would look like a big pile of metal but fortunately, it looks like it has always been here. It's in a pla...

I agree Ellen - it is heavy so if you had to heave ho it out of a cabinet or closet every time you wanted to use it you just might skip it. Here's hoping you still have room!

No, you are remembering correctly. After the defective first set of furniture went back, I was sent a reimbursement for it, without even asking.
