06:42 pm: Animal Hoarder
A local woman has been found to have 20 live cats/dogs/birds/small mammals and 30 dead. The neighbors say there's been a stench for months, but nobody called until earlier this week. She did this about five years ago and promised to never have pets again, so I hope the judge requires random inspections. I'm very fond of cats, but I know how many I can handle.

Spirit and I watched the Kennedy Center Honors last night. I expected I'd like the Brubeck and Springsteen sections, but the Mel Brooks section was small musical bits from his shows and that was good, too.

I took the trash and recycling out today, then took the coins from the full bowl to have the credit union run them through the machine and put them in my account.

I've needed a .pdf reader that's small and free, and I got Sumatra which took 30 minutes to print one page. I deleted that and got Foxit, which is a bit larger (5.1 vs. 1.2) but prints immediately.

The after-5pm forecasts say we'll have 1-3 inches of ice and snow tomorrow, and I didn't get to cancel my rheumatology appointment because they close at 5pm. I can do it online, but I'd like to set up a new one at the same time, and I need the assistant for that.

How sad. I'm pretty sure a good proportion of animal hoarding is an uncontrollable compulsion. Random inspections or better yet treatment for the compulsion disorder behind it are definitely needed.

Adobe Reader is free.

Yes, I'm sure it's a psychological problem, which is why there will have to be some help, even if it's just inspections.

Adobe Reader is too big. I'm still on the machine with only 3G. I'm working on getting an OS I like on the little computer that has a lot more room.
