Monday Monty Blogging (I’m like a bird edition)

Monty just loves Woodstock, it give him a chance to play in the bird bath. He got his first real bath later, which he was markedly less happy about.
How was your weekend?

    Wow. Monty is getting HUGE. They grow up so quickly, don’t they? Soon he’ll be asking for the car keys so he can drag race with his friends.

    My weekend was definitely not as cute as Monty’s.

    OH Monty your so cute! my JR was being a bit suck all weekend and wouldn’t leave my side. She has also decided that she likes to sleep at my chest more than at my feet now. Which is strange since shes always prefered the bottom of the bed.

    I remember when Monty was just a cute, fat, little puppy with blue puppy eyes sitting on a yellow, gender-neutral color baby blanket …and now he’s getting wet in little fountains.
    I think he’s going through the terrible twos – doggie version (I originally wrote “style” and not “version,” but I realized it wouldn’t have come across so …eloquent.)

    monty is totally smoochy poochy!
    but since you asked about my weekend, i’ll tell ya: i spent it helping students at CCSU keep up the fight about the Recorder, which published a cartoon about kidnapping and urinating on a 14-year-old Latina. the paper wants to push it under the rug and won’t accept articles that talk about it — old news! and the university president seems to be more interested in protecting the editor’s right to free speech than the students’ rights to basic 14th amendment rights. so it remains an uphill battle and people are exhausted. but many are keeping the argument focused on the real issues at play and not getting divided. one is blogging at and it is interesting. we could use more national attention to the story but hey, if it works just to post in the comments, i’ll do so.
    and yeah, jessica asked about my weekend, so there.

    OmG, he looks so wild. And when did he get so big?

  • MadelineB

    I remember when my baby was so little and cuddly.
    Okay, so he’s still pretty little and very cuddly, but you know what I mean.

    Leased lines were installed to provide communication for emergency contacts or liaison between those Games sites requiring frequent use of telephones. Liaison was further facilitated by incorporating three systems of leased-line network, viz; one between Kishi Memorial Hall and each Games site, and second between the Olympic Villages and each Games site, and a third between transportation terminals such as the Transportation Headquarters, Haneda Airport and officials’ quarters. Besides these networks, a number of leased lines were installed to serve the additional pressure of calls expected during the opening and closing ceremonies, and to service the traffic police activities and to ensure effective control at Games sites. These leased lines were used extensively and were responsible for much of the efficiency in communication between widely separated points.
    Interphones were used mainly for liaison between officials within the Games sites, in transmitting sports results and for assembling athletes. Four types of interphones were used according to their application, viz; two-way, masterslave, through-line and general-calling types. With the exception of the National Stadium and Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium where existing interphones were available, a total of 170 interphone sets were installed temporarily at all the other Games sites (See Table). These interphones actually proved most useful in providing easy contact between officials not only at the Games sites, but also between officials when similar events were being held simultaneously at different grounds as in the case of hockey played at the Komazawa Sports Park. Interphones were also made use of to advantage in transportation liaison (dispatching of vehicles, etc. ) at the officials’ quarters and Olympic Villages.
    The NTT installed a total of 595 public telephones in and around Olympic facilities for the benefit of spectators, athletes, officials and reporters. Eight telegraph and telephone service stations were set up to handle domestic and telephone services for spectators and reporters, and also station to service athletes and officials.
