Remember how I noted earlier this HM that March came in like a lion? Well, contrary to the old saying, it’s beginning to look like March is going out like a lion too.
Big rain storms here in MyValley & lotsa snow up in the mountains. We are hoping & some are praying that the snow pack will reach normal for this time of year. Snowbank is our H2O Savings Account, ya know. At least if we reach average we might have enough for a couple of years of drought, which no one can predict whether drought will occur again or for how long it will last. So we’re wishin’ & hopin’ & thinkin’ & prayin’ for an adequate snow pack.
Down in SoCA they are experiencing major big rain storms. Their mountains along the coast, where my cuzzins live, aren’t high enough to get snow. So all that water can come rushing down & create flash floods in the burn areas. Seems like that area already flash flooded once.
In the east, where we got friends & relations who are experiencing tornadoes in FL, where my BFFs Annie & GMama live. I don’t think they got blown eastward cuz they’d wind up in the ocean. At the same time, New England, where my UncaT & Auntie Teach live, they got the 4th Nor’easter in March goin’ on.
I know. Some, perhaps many, humans chose not to believe in Global Climate Crisis. They think the best way is to ignore it & pray it’ll just go away. Poof. Gone. But that doesn’t seem to be happening. If anything weather patterns are getting more radical.
I dunno. We, here at Todo Chronicles, think it would occur to these super smart systems analysts, that when you tweak & fiddle with a system, which is, eventually all the little small fiddles & tweaks lead to a breakdown of said system. Which seems to be the case these days. Humans cut down rain forests. Toss emissions of destructive gases into the air, water & ground. Alter the shape of landscapes. Pave over big big areas of ground so rainwater can’t seep into the groundwater system. I mean the list is endless of the many ways humans have altered a system not of their design.
But even if you chose to pray the crisis away, it seems to us, here at Todo Chronicles, that humans would want to do things to reduce the risk to life & property. And, by the way, reduce risk to all life forms since humans aren’t the only living inhabitants of They also might want to think about altering their ways & preventing damage & loss before it occurs.
Humans have the capability. We, here at Todo Chronicles, think they lack the motivation until Climate Change actually affects them, personally, right in their own back yard. When the costs of repairing damage & rescuing the impacted get higher than the National Debt. Humans many be smart (or not) but they certainly lack the ability to see beyond the end of their noses, which are too short in any case.

This Valentines Day, being in the middle of the week & all, I didn’t figure there was much chance I’d gitta celebrate Hearts & Flowers Day with Mymi. She’s usually gone golfing on this day of the HW. It’s kind of a human tradition us dogs don’t often participate in. But I guess we all gotta face the New Normal these days.
Image may contain: text


& so it was that Mymi decided to forego golf this Valentines Day in favor of sending me this cute Valentine msg. Isn’t that cute?!
She decided to forego golf as it was pretty cold (for CA) & cloudy when she was due to arise in order to meet her friends at the GC at the appointed time. It remained cool & cloudy for the morning & it took extra time for her to arise & begin the day. Which is not all that unusual, when I stop & think about it.
Be that as it may, she arose & announced we were going on a Valentines Day walkies. It is my Valentines Day surprise. I was thrilled.
So, walkies we did. We combined a couple of our known routes thru our Neighborhood. Only backwards from our normal approach. That was kind of unique & exciting. Made it seem like todolly new territory.
We went to the school park where all the kids walk/run around the park in PE. They always want to pet me & say I’m a nice/pretty dog. I like that.
Then we walked backwards (well backwards from our usual approach) to the little neighborhood park nearer our Domain. There was a fellow sitting at the other table who petted me nicely & gently after I got a drink of water from Mymi’s water bottle. Then we were off on the final leg of our excursion,
You know what was best about My Valentines Day walkies? We went along at my pace, since it was my Valentines Day walkies. I gotta ketchup on a lot of sniffing & investigation which sometimes gets overlooked in favor of speed walking cuz Mymi’s gotta be somewhere else soon. I don’t walk as fast as I used to. Well really, I don’ do anything as fast as I usedta.
Whatta nice Valentines Day. Wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day like mine.

Oy vei! Seems like the HM of Jan. was just 1 thing after another. Could hardly catch my breath before something else needed attention & investigation. No time for real reporting of news & events around here.
Primary among Things That Required Resolution were:
1st of all, we hadda get used to another laptop while ours was sent to the manufacturer for repair. Seems kind of unfair that you gotta send your faulty electronic device back to the manufacturer for repair of said faulty product & then wait around until said manufacturer gets around to repair or replacement. Whattaya s’posed to do without said device? Mymi says all her brains are in our mobile devices. Of course, under those circumstances we gotta git ‘er done. Fortunately our ITGal had a loaner device so we could send oirs back. BUT not all of us users are as nimble-fingered (or even as fingered) as humans. Frustrating to hafta get used to nother devices & then hafta get used to yours again. Not easy for us 4-toed users. Phooey. Hopefully we’ll get the laptop back in a timely manner.
2nd of all…& more important & costly, we hadda replaced the HVAC system. Not zackly sure what that is but I know it is a Big Deal. There was lotsa talk about shifting money to the correct account. Then there was lotsa work persons around here the last few HDs. Banging & running big machines. Using a big arm sitting on a big truck to take a big machine off our roof. Then putting a replacement (it appeared to be) at the side of our domain. (Great! Another device to scope out & investigate. Don’t think I’ll actually need to used it tho, which is the good news.) So anyhow, I think everything is complete now. We just need to learn how to use these devices. Well Mymi does. Good luck with that!
Myself, personally, I’m gonna learn how to operate this new laptop device. Prolly have it functional about the time I gotta give it back. But you see what I mean about learning about another device. Where did this underline come from & how do I get rid of it! Not only that, why does my page keep jumping around? Getting bigger & then smaller. My mouse keeps jumping all over the page. Why don’t things work like they’re s’posed to?
I’ll be real glad to get my own laptop back. Seems to me these Labor Saving Convenience Devices aren’t necessarily all they’re cracked up to be & maybe humans continue to fool themselves so they can have the most Blingy & shiney stuff. Quit trying to take the easy way out of problems that have been mounting for centuries.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all. 
We’re a bit slow with the ketchup after the holidays. I’m told it was a grand season altho yrs truly didn’t gitta go on any holiday excursions to the Valley of Casinos & Bling or over to the Coast to see the Great Zoo & Center for Conservation and Research for Endangered Species. Which was OK I guess. I was still kinda tired from our trip to see many of our cuzzins in the Southland. I still hadda guide & assist in the ketchup work when things returned to ‘normal.’ Whatever ‘normal’ is these days.
In any case I’m told that the family git-togethers in the Valley of Casinos & Bling were most successful. Everyone got a lotta loot. It looks like a busy busy day. Like to wore poor Mali out.
Then they traveled to south SoCA, San Diego, to see the Zoo among other things. They had a blast. Saw all the animals from elephants & zebras to koalas &warthogs. From flamingos to pelicans on the winged side. What a place! 
We, here at Todo Chronicles, & at K9Nation & in the Animal Kingdom generally, are todolly & happily support & encourage organizations like the San Diego Zoo. They were leaders in the Cageless Zoo Display effort so animals don’t have to look back at their audiences through bars & cyclone fencing. Not a perfect arrangement but sometimes some animals have to be protected from human incursion into their habitat or they’ll go estinct. That means there won’t be any of them left . . . anywhere . . . ever again. 
We, here at Todo Chronicles & across the (Animal) Kingdom, still can’t figure out why it’s so difficult for humans, especially humans trained in systems building & analysis, can’t understand that is a big huge system. Fiddle with this. Fuddle with that. Draw out a few strands from the middle. Eliminate some moving  parts & the system collapses. Things Fall Apart. The Center Won’t Hold.
If humans really want to keep that from happening, they better learn to peacefully coexist with their furry, fuzzy, finny & 4 footed co-inhabitants of After all it’s their only home domain. While, for instance, us dogs will return to PlanetPluto when our time here on is done. Where are humans gonna go?  We, here at Todo Chronicles, hope they don’t figure out a way to go off to some other planet & leave this one in shambles. A dry barren hunk of junk not habitable by any species we know of today.
We also think humans could make an effort to learn from their more domesticated companions on this sphere. Dogs are the best people. They have a lot to teach humans about being.  . . well . . . Human. 😎
This guy gets it!
