Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

After over 1150 posts regarding the Glen of Imaal Terrier it’s a personal post today. This evening the computer will be packed away ready for a house move. BT have assured that a phone (and internet) connection will be live in the new place as soon as is possible but “possible” hasn’t yet been defined. Hopefully normal service will be back next week!

Whilst we’re away have a think about the first few words of the above-over 1150 posts-and where we can go next? Should the EFG blog continue how it is? Should it do things in more depth? Should it possibly go more political?

  1. There’s a story , of a young woman who was putting in the roast for Sunday dinner. Her guests watched as she carefully cut off a portion of one end of the roast before putting it in the pan to cook. One family friend asked “Wow, that’s really interesting. Why do you do that?” She said, “My mom, who was the best cook I know, taught me to always do this.”

    Fascinated, the friend called the woman’s mother. “Why do you cut the end off the roast?” She replied, “My own mother, who was a fabulous cook, always did it, and I have always thought it was important too.”

    And so the friend called the elderly grandmother, related the story, and said “So what is it that makes cutting the roast end so critical?” The grandmother laughed and laughed. “My goodness!” she said. “I didn’t have a big enough roasting pan. I had to cut the end off the roast to fit it in the pan!”

    The time of just following what an older breeder told us is over. Own your own decisions! You must know what you are doing and be able to explain exactly why you are making the breeding decisions you are making, and “so and so told me it worked” is not enough. We are breeding in a totally different and often overtly hostile environment and, if we are not already, we’re going to be under an incredible amount of scrutiny.

  2. Took us weeks to get phone and pc up and running after we moved, hope yours will be better than ours was. Good luck moveing to your new home.
