I checked our milk pack and it didn't say anything about the expiration time after opening the pack. So no 'one day only' limit. Not that it would have kept my mom from using it for a long period of time despite being opened. Because she really can't drink the whole pack within one day.

Speaking of cables. I'm going to try to get a more flexible 'coax' cable (as they call it) for my tv. I bought a rotating disk for my tv, to avoid the cable popping out, but it still popped out, because it's just not flexible enough for a 180 degrees turn. I'm also looking for electrical socket splitter. The prices really vary. For the cable some websites ask ridiculousl high prices (I don't know how long that cable is) and for the splitter only 1,50 euro.

I made a short walk and did some exercizes with Zeno afterwards and.. he did amazingly well eek Sure, his level of excitement was through the roof, but he didn't jump on me (he had to control himself) and he's doing fantastic with his place-stay exercize. So I could let him go to his place from a distance. Make him stay there. And run past him and walk pretty far away before calling him to me. The recall isn't perfect when he's totally excited, but the fact that he's staying where he's supposed to is very encouraging. This morning I also told him to go to his place while I let the cat indoors. The black cat looked around as if he was thinking 'this is new' and he actually approached the dog when he was lying on his place. Progress! mrgreen
I can't really explain why he's suddenly performing well. According to wikipedia a male dog in puberty has 6 x more testosterone running through him than an adult dog. So in theory he could be rather fierce and dominant. I think the most likely explanation is that I don't use force anymore, unless I have to. Because using force to get him to lie down is realy counterproductive. But the fact that he knows that I can and will use force if he refuses, is in my favor. So he knows he has to do it. And he does. It's really Boss when I manage to get him to sit-stay while another dog passes by. But I know that his performance on exercizes varies, so I really have to repeat and repeat and repeat before he'll be reliably obedient.

I've been bidding on two books. One of them accepted my bid without question and the other wanted some more and I decided to agree on that. So two books will be arriving on the doorstep soon. One of them is the Truth about dogs book, which unfortunately isn't the original English version, but i couldn't find a seller for that.

The Thors Academy's former students. What a bunch of sissies rofl I wouldn't recruit them in my team either.

Was the small pack of dishwasher tablets from the same brand as the XL pack? If so: that's really misleading.

I think all those 'chopped up' versions of vegetables are for the lazy people who apparently want to pay 3 times as much for the same vegetables. They sell more and more of those products in Dutch supermarkets. I expect that younger generations aren't used to be economical with their money. They don't think twice and they don't compare products. So they end up leaving with the XL pack, the chopped up vegetables for zucchini soup oh AND milk rofl

I watched the ending of The Last Guardian. It really is an amazing game, you should play it (and if you can't, watch it). The story is great and as I mentioned before the views are breathtaking and the interaction/bonding between boy (smal) and beast (large) is great, as well as the beast's animation. But you'll have to be patient with the game, including the controls. The camera angles are also the horror. So you've been warned. And I think the replay value of the game is relatively low. There's just one path, one story.

The Lord of the Flies is much easier to read than The Art of War. You can't really compare the two, though. They're both good books. You should read them.I've never heard of 'The giver' either. I googled it and it's a young-adult book about an utopian society. It sounds quite alright.

I'll also check the milk pack to see what it says. We never finish a pack of milk in one day - basically it's only my mother who uses milk for her coffee.
But milk we find in the supermarket nowadays is not the milk from old days. There's so many additives and it's been pasteurized etc.
Milk 'behaves' differently. When you cook it for example, 'real' milk is supposed to rise up and form a fatty layer. Milk from the supermarket doesn't do that. Even 'full' milk doesn't do that anymore.

It's freakin' cold outside for the second day in a row. My fingers and toes hurt after a long walk with the dog. This is no fun.

What a terrible idea to go on a bicycle ride with the dog this morning. It was so cold! I couldn't feel my fingers anymore. The horror.
