    That noise can be very disconcerting when you're trying to sleep!

    Go Nets!!

    I'm proud of our Clippers too - for their show of solidarity during a very rough patch for the team.

    Absolutely agree about the Clippers. I give the team and especially Doc Rivers a ton of credit for the manner in which they conducted themselves.

    That was great. Animals are hysterical.The huskies, which I am partial to were beautiful. I got conned into taking care of a cat and of course I got the phone call a week later saying she couldn't care for it. Now I have a cat. She would look at me and I would look at her. When I brought my dog home, the one in my avatar, she was smaller than the cat. I figured they would grow up together and be cool. No such luck. I didn't think the cat understood why the dog kept growing and she stayed the same size. When I adopted my second dog the cat had no life. I had to give it to my kid. Cat is happy as a loon now. The only pet, and she is queen of the house.

    I don't really have a favorite NBA team, but I do follow several Jayhawks that play in the League. With Paul Pierce now on the Nets, that makes them one of "my" teams. Love The Truth!

    He certainly was "the truth" on the last play of the game Sunday. Pierce blocked the shot that saved the game for the nets.

    Wonderful videos. Every time a heartwarming video gets posted, I go pet my two dogs and give them an extra treat. No wonder they get excited when I open the laptop.
