Netfilx's "House of Cards". The opening...

...was goddamned BRUTAL! A dog is hit by a car and the Congressman puts him down with his bare hands.

I hope the rest of the series doesn't use a dog's death as a metaphor or as any dramatic device. It had me in tears...

1. Thanks for the warning!

I'll keep my eyes closed during that part.

How was the rest of the show?

2. Just getting thru it now. It looks really good!

But, man, the opening was crushing for me (I love my dogs and it was more than I could handle, quite frankly).

3. Yeah, I can never watch stuff like that -- TRULY upsetting.

I literally dive for the remote when the ASPCA spot comes on MSNBC. I just can't even look at those pictures. PatSet feels they'd get a better response if they showed frolicking animals with their loving new family, and I really wish they'd go that route.

My best friend in LA said that yesterday during his hike (up to the Hollywood sign) he saw a coyote wandering aimlessly, then saw a deer and its baby deer (don't know what they're called). We both were sad about it -- how we've just taken their habitat from them.

7. The doe is the mom...

I'm doing OK. Still quite tired and some pain...

But I'm functioning, sort of!

Thanks for asking, sweetie...

4. I Watched 3 of the Episodes in One Sitting

I think the series is well done but I can only take so much conservative sliminess in one sitting. The original British produced House of Cards was outstanding and I ended up purchasing the DVD set. I'm not so sure I will enjoy the US remake as much.
