Re: The stupid, it burns!

By "filling in the form," you mean putting the note in each one that tells what their chart number is.

Well, I was thinking in terms of finding the ancestors, and I put the numbers in as I go. Even if the person is wrong, [more]

Re: The stupid, it burns!

I still don't get it.

I click on the little button marked "pedigree" and then move through my tree. How do I find the page and number? Where do I look?

Re: Question on cat compatability ..

One thing I would recommend before the cats live together is to swap blankets. Rub each cat, separately, with a blanket or towel, then take the blanket and swap them so each cat gets accustomed to the other cat's smell.

Re: The stupid, it burns!

Chart? Your chart or another chart? Can you simplify this instruction? It sounds quite useful.

It's the pedigree chart. On Ancestry there are five generations in a standard chart. (I'm explaining this for the benefit of everyone else) [more]

Re: Opinions on Dog limping temporarily

I just thought of this. If it turns out to be arthritis, does she jump down from couches or your bed? If so you may want to look around and see if you can find some way of making the distance smaller, with a step or something.

Re: Apologetic Pet

I'm calling staged, not believing it with the video cuts and at one point dog stops to look at camera person waiting for next command.

Don't blame him, either.

I was whipping past some death notices from over a century ago when I spotted one for a Mrs. Riley. Captain Riley had been a sea-captain. His ship was wrecked on the coast of Africa in 1816, and he was made a slave of a tribe of Arabs. After his [more]
