That's a thought... please let us know how that works....


Worse, only get the posted message, no thread even, without a click from there...

What she would like to do is go back to where she was responding from (to see the rest of the comments new in the same refresh), not to the top of the page or the other way down to the first new one since her last refresh.  There is no way to do that.  It'd be a neat option for busy threads, but I'm not sure how many would use it if it was available.

laulaja: TempThreadsEnd finally, time to check e-mail & give up for day.
Also say Hoppy Anniwersary to Lily cuz didn't before -- FangQ to all for words & pix posted, saved some.  Also bet that wasn't  recent foto of Buddy the Wonder DogTM , but Vurra Good if it was.
Comments from sno man & whoever else re trying to keep track of comments read; this computah is acting up again. Used to be able to scroll almost anywhere freely, now must use track at right. grumble grumble growse growse.
Best find a suitable cartoon or foto, go ck e-mail as landline hasn't rung yet, & go collapse.  Hyvaa Ilta --  let's try for some umlauts after all....  nope, not cooperating or not trying hard enough.[i.imgur.com image 640x425]Eli the Bitey rolled up to snooze, posted by his staffie tigerose 6.28.12.  Could almost use a catption, but would need be all white to be legible.  Not tonite, not by moi.  Hope she'll skritch him for us ....


Not sure what browser you are using, but I wonder if a pop-up or some something is taking the focus off the page you are trying to scroll... click anywhere (other than a link) on the page, and try scrolling again.
If it's Firefox, I have another potential solution...

syzygy whizz: Bathia_Mapes: Lil Bub & Grumpy Cat together on Caturday is truly the best of both worlds :-)

Hello everyboddeee!
 ^-^
='.'=

It looked as though Lil Bub was more curious about Tardar Sauce (aka 'Grumpy Cat'), the way LB was following GC around.
Poor kitties, it hurt me to watch them walk.

They both have...how does one put this...irregularities with their facial expressions as well.
I wonder how difficult that makes it for the 'getting to know you' process?

They're both acclimated to what most cats would find overwhelming amounts of stimulus, so that should help a bit...


Most other cats don't like Bub for some reason, Bub's Dude already had 4 cats before he got Bub as a tiny kitten and ended up housing them in his recording studio near where he lives. He takes good care of them too, but it would be nice if they got along with Bub so they could all live together.

And according to Bub's Dude she's a really good traveler. Apparently the vibrations from being in a plane or car are actually beneficial to her condition (osteopetrosis). The vibrations help break down the osteoclasts (a type of bone cell) which results in increased mobility for Bub.
 
2014-06-19 10:58:21 PM  

akimbotoo: OlderGuy: quantum_jellyroll: Bathia_Mapes:
...And in addition to that Lil Bub has a rare bone disorder called osteopetrosis...

That's OK.
I was born with a rare disorder, Osteopenosis.
It's very rare, but thankfully, not debilitating.
Makes me walk a little funny, but I'm taller than either one of them.

I'll bet it doesn't, you know "tripod" and all that. :D

Lsherm: Happy Caturday!  Jasper, new kitten as of January, is only 11 months old and is suffering from "resorption" which means his gums are eating his teeth.  He's getting half his teeth pulled next week before his first birthday, and that makes me a little sad.  The vet swears cats don't need teeth to live, but I'm a bit pissed off about it.  Jasper was a feral rescue kitten, and apparently this happens sometimes.

Here he is assuming the position for sleep last night, and it kills me because he's going to be miserable on Tuesday, but the vet assures me he will be better in the long run.  Still, so long, Jasper teeth:

[img820.imageshack.us image 700x933]

He is such a sweet, sweet kitten.  He'll insist on butt rubbing the Kindle if I'm reading, but after he takes his spot right under my armpit to sleep.  He may never forgive me after next Tuesday.



Awww, poor sweetie! I am sure he will forgive you and the vet.

Winterlight: Caught a pair of feral kittens last week. Luckily, once I posted the photos of them to Facebook, they were quickly adopted and are now quite happy in their new domains.

Welcome! They are adorable and sure to be well loved in their new homes!

Maverick's my personal favorite, but Thursday nights, they have four solid hours of Magnum P.I.

Sky King!

CSB time...
My grandfather (mom's dad) used to own the airport in Brownsburg, IN.
My uncle (mom's brother) had his pilots license and ended up being the Great Lakes factory rep for Cessna out of Rockford, IL.
As the factory rep, he had a stable of Cessna aircraft at his disposal for demonstration purposes.
One year, over spring vacation, we went up to visit him and he took us kids to the airport and took each of us up for rides.
(Between my grandfather and my uncle, I've flown since I was about 3 years old.)
This time, my uncle had one of those newfangled Polaroid cameras that produced (B&W) pictures in a minute.
Of course, you had to use this smelly squeegee thing to "finish the picture" and prevent it from over-developing.

He took a shot of me half standing on the wing/in the cabin of a Cessna 310, just like Sky King's!
It had the same paint job and everything!

I brought it back with me and took it to school for Show & Tell.
Geez-O-Pete!
All the other guys wished they were me, and all the girls wanted to touch me because I had been in a plane like Sky Kings!!!

Best spring vacation ever!

Oh yippee! Caturday.
(Tl/dr/somewhat carthic) you have been warned. Plus Cessna goodness. The stories I could tell being for a good part of my younger life being a private pilot for hire......as well as a first class broadcast license that paid for my edumication (g) and private pilot hours..... There was a great summer in grad school we rented a plane through the school (a roommate got us Yugoslavian (I know I spelled this wrong) passports. We flew getting hours into lots of islands and had a wonderful time in Cuba. That caused Dad issues as he had been a White House advisor for several administrations and I was too stupid to think about the crap I caused. (Obviously I am an older fart, but with a teenager in high school now)

This week started out being severely depressing. A fark thread over a vaccine that killed our first born (vaccinate, we were the exception) had my wife and I spiraling under, especially as I was the next day installing DVD players I picked up from a humane society flea market into a charity hospice that needed them. Things got massively better for a couple of reasons. The kid (and I since he being under 18 required my presence and he is not really interested in his drivers license) by his volunteering at the humane society and him and I just getting "certified" to work with cat "socialization". Darn but I needed this. Sad thing is that kitten season is starting, and the kid and I both want to make sure that older cats get the love they need but there is a rotating cycle that makes sure every cat/kittens do rotation. He really earned my respect my telling my that the older cats in the shelter are more important than the kittens.

There is one eight year old very friendly (fur fungus) cat that I would love to adopt from the society because (may they rot and die) his family gave him up due to moving. My better two thirds is a dog person and two cats are enough for her. Cats are family pets. You have to be evil to abandon a cat. Scheese, the homeless shelters I cook for also have pet areas.

Hai everbuddy! YAY!!! fur Caturday! Lots of doctor stuffs this week and feeling BLAARGH and owie and just generally not a happy camper, which is normal for me now.

No, not really. I chose to post the picture so I'm not really upset. I was more bothered by her taking a picture and waking me up as she went to bed than by the picture itself.
