Never underestimate those damn beagles. Via Sullivan.
Oy. My beagle/basset mix is so damn short, but if motivated, can get up and grab stuff from the middle of the counter. Many a night we've woken up to a crash, boom, bang. Via.
Just a wee bit of housekeeping. If you haven’t already (stern look) please like us on teh Facebook, and we are all available to follow on Twitter. Gotta is great, David is fabulous and Lucian is smart and funny. Me, I’m still trying to get the font big enough to read, but I will get there eventually. Or just follow the whole damn lot of us here. Thank you.
I really have to start filming our beagle, 'cause he's twice as stupid as this dog.
It's just the two of us, with Lucian handling the tech stuff, doing this whole shebang, day after day. We love it and love interacting with ya'll, but the bills need to get paid. If we somehow brighten your day, educate or even irritate you at times, please consider a donation, big or small, to keep us bumping along. If everyone who dropped by on a daily basis dropped a coin in the bucket, we'd be done in no time. If you'd like a snail mail address, email me at paddy at thepoliticalcarnival dot net. Thank you.
If these buttons aren't working, the ones in the right sidebar are also active.
One of the reasons I love Beagles, they're stupidly amusing. Via Andrew.
Every day Gotta and I do the best that we can to keep you guys informed as to what's going on, and granted, we could nap thru these next few months, but we're racking up to steam roll to the election, determined to bring you the fastest and bestest news before the final days. We need help to maintain the servers and to just exist on a day to day basis every three months as you know. It ain't cheap, but we're determined. Please, if you can, contribute thru the Chip In button below (it goes thru PayPal, but gives us a running tally so you guys can see what's going on), the ones to your right in the sidebar or email us thru the contact us page for a snail mail address. We appreciate it!!
Please note: You can chip in to help TPC using the widget below via PayPal or major credit cards.
We need to raise funds so we don’t have to worry about expenses for the next three months, both for site upkeep and our own mounting bills.
We so appreciate the generosity of those who are able to help out. We also totally understand if you can’t. And our fundraising goal is way, way less than nearly every site we know of, because we know our readers are not wealthy.
To those who are able to help out, please remember, without your donations, we have no Political Carnival.
Somehow I accidently got a Basset Hound. He was advertised as a Basset/Beagle mix, and since we both have a thing for hounds, especially Beagles, we thought he'd be a nice companion for Boo who is older at 10. WELP, no one warned me about the Basset's ahem, placid nature. Or as I call it, "Oh look, the lump on the log is moving!!!". I have not been bonding at all, but Jeff seems to be and the dog has his good points I guess. We got them all worked up for dinner so we could get that lovely Beagle howl on the vid. Enjoy. (Oh and yes, that floor is getting replaced very soon)
