I figured out one of the problems with Shiva -- he seems to think I'm chasing him when I carry the plate around. I tried warming the chicken today and that didn't work so I'm going to try two plates tomorrow -- one with both pouch stuff and chicken and one with just pouch stuff.
We have ants in the kitchen -- new mulch the end of last week and it always brings ants in. I put the ant bait thingie down; that usually works.
I hope to be done online early enough to read both an old Saturday and old Sunday WashPost tonight.
