Happy Halloween!!!

Today is Halloween so I woke up howling one of my favorite songs, I Like Candy.  The song is one of my favorites because I do love candy so much.  I will be howling this song a lot today so that my humans will hear it, and eventually, will give me candy.  I am such a clever dog!!!!  Yeah, I know what the dogs reading this are does not take much to be smarter than the humans!   I know the humans are easy to manipulate, but a when it comes to candy, it is best not to take chances!  This year I think my humans bought a dog "submarine outfit", but I don't mind.  Since Angel Zoom Smokey and myself think that a dog dressed up in costume looks silly, our stunt dog, Phantom Fast Snowman wears all costumes.  Since Phantom is a full sized stuffed husky, he never complains so it works out for Angel and myself.  When I was a puppy, my human Mommy got the stupid idea of buying me booties.  I didn't care for the booties, and she gave up having me wear them.  While she was putting one on one paw, I'd be taking the other one off the previous paw.  Since I'm a very stubborn dog, she gave in long before I did so I have never had her try to put the stupid booties on me again.  I don't want to go outside and have squirrels and chipmunks laughing at me.  You don't see a squirrel or a chipmunk wearing shoes!  Of course, I'm sure that most dogs would be happy to chase and catch a squirrel or chipmunk so that the humans can put shoes on them in exchange for leaving the dog bare pawed.  When the trick or treaters come by to get candy, one of my brothers gives it to them, and Mommy hangs out in the bedroom with Angel and ,me.  Angel gets too excited over children and wants to kiss them, and she can get a bit carried away with the kisses.  I do hope that everyone has a nice Halloween, and if you get too much candy, send it to me, Demon Flash Bandit.  I'll be sniffing the mail in hopes of smelling candy!

Ladder to Candy

Halloween will be here soon, and it is a holiday that this dog looks forward to celebrating.  I have already smelled the delicious smells that have come into the house via the grocery bag--Milky Way, Twix, and Payday.  Ever since the humans brought them home, I have been trying to devise a way to get  into said candy.  The humans make it difficult, but we Siberian huskies are very determined dogs.  I put the same amount of effort into trying to find the candy as a husky would to pull a sled.  So far, I haven't managed to get any because the humans have become good at finding spots to put things like that where I can't reach it.  However, I'm hoping that since it is getting colder outside, that is might discourage the trick or treaters, and I can get some candy in my paws while the kids are coming by to get candy.  Hopefully, there will be a lot left over even though the humans tell me it isn't good for me.  Technically, I bet it isn't good for the humans either, but they still eat it....lucky humans!!!  I have to go now.  I'm making plans to build a ladder to reach the candy.

Enjoying Cooler Weather

The weather here has gotten cooler, and it could not be more welcome to this dog.  Just a couple of days ago, my human was still using the air conditioner in the car, and now they have turned on the heater in the house.  I personally don't think we need the heater, but the humans and I disagree on comfortable temperatures.   I am sorry that this storm is causing so much trouble for much of the east coast of the United States, but I do enjoy the cooler temperatures that we are having in our area because of the storm.  I'll admit that I prefer temperatures much lower than the 40's (F), but a dog takes what he can get.  I hated the warm summer temperatures.  I'd be even happier if some of that snow reached my area, but I don't think it will.  Snow--so delightful.  I love it as much as my humans hate it.

Money Spent on Family Dog: Money Used Wisely

I was pleased to see in the news today that the humans are spending more than ever on their pets.  Of course, this is as it should be, but when dealing with humans, things are not often what they should be.  The family pet is an important part of the family, and should be treated as such.  When it is necessary to cut back on the family budget, the dog should never be included in any of those cuts.  Particularly when the humans have to cut back, that is when they need the dog to make them feel better.   Therefore, it is imperative that the humans keep the dog happy, and we are easy to please.  I would write a longer blog, but since the news says the humans are spending more money on their pets, I need to get off the computer and look through some dog catalogs and pick out a few things.  The humans will appreciate my imput since they usually don't have a clue what dogs enjoy.

Life of a Dog Blogger

Today I am preparing for my visit from the television show, Life of a Dog Blogger.  Most dogs would be excited to be on a television show, but when you are a famous blogger like myself, you get used to these kind of things.  After all, I'm always being asked to star in movies and television shows, but I have other more important things to do with my time.  There is the doorbell...that means the host of the show is here.  I'll let my humans answer the door for me because that is their job.  That is why they are live-in help.  I'll go and grace the host with my appearance and then I will come back to let my readers know how it turned out.  Later....I think the show went well.  The host of the show was very impressed with my lifestyle, and who wouldn't be?  I have McDonalds hamburgers for dinner just about everyday, and we all know how much the humans love to eat there.  I have several cool places to sleep besides the bed.  One of my favorite ones is at the French doors on the slate the humans put at the door so that the people would not step  immediately onto the oak floors when entering the house from those doors.  For those of us who are of the Siberian husky species, it makes a cool spot in which to lay , andI like the cool temperature.  In addition, I get to look out at the deck, and I can see the road next to the house (the house is on a corner) so I can also watch traffic if I get bored.  I showed him my toy box of which I happen to be very proud.  I particularly like the toy that squeaks no matter where you touch it.  I find it fascinating!  I also have a vast collection of rawhide bones.  I tried to get them insured, but for some stupid reason, insurance companies are reluctant to insure items you plan to eat.  They seem to think it is not a wise investment.  Obviously, these insurance companies are run by humans because a dog would consider a bone more valuable than anything else in this house.  The show will be airing on the Siberian Husky  channel on October 30, 2012 at 8:00pm EST.  Be sure and watch because I happened to look incredibly cute--as usual!

Movie Review: Argo

Today's movie review is of the movie, Argo. Argo is a movie based on the true story of the 6 diplomatic personnel from the United States who escaped from the embassy before it was taken over by Iranian revolutionaries in 1980. These fugitive Americans were taken in by the Canadian ambassador. The CIA was put in charge of getting them out of the country. This was accomplished by a clever ruse of a movie being made that needed locations in Iran. The Americans were part of the "Canadian movie crew" in an attempt to get them out of the country. This is a very good movie, and very entertaining. The story could not be told at the time until it was declassified. There was one cameo by a dog which probably put the movie above budget because you know the dog cost a lot to hire for the scene. However, the studios will usually spend the money because you know what the movie executives say, "if you want a movie to be a hit, be sure it has a dog in it". I give this movie 4 paws up, a tail wag, some kisses, and a rawhide bone. On the human movie scale, I give it 10 out of 10. You can go and see this movie with confidence because it has been recommended by me, Demon Flash Bandit. Demon Flash Bandit (Movie Critic)

Demon Flash Bandit--Dog, not Dinner

I know that I am not the first dog, nor will I be the last dog, to ask. just how stupid are the humans? My humans were watching a program about UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objets), and aliens. I did not find the program interesting, and thought they should be watching a movie like Snow Dogs or Eight Below--you know a movie about dogs. This is when the humans got really stupid....Jeff told Mommy that there is some speculation that when an Earthling thinks about aliens or UFOs or talks about them, you are more likely to have an encounter with one. I couldn't believe it...if that is true, then why are the humans watching a television program about them and then talking about it? That should be a subject that no one mentions--like saying Beetlejuice 3 times. Look at what happened when Beetlejuice showed up! He was not a welcome guest! I'm not saying that the "aliens" might not be nice, but who knows? They could be like the ones in that old episode of the Twilight Zone who were here to "serve humans", and then at the end of the show, one of the linquists discovered that the book, "To Serve Humans" was a cookbook. I'm sure the aliens might be nice and helpful, but what if they are just searching the universe for exotic new foods. This dog does not believe in taking chances. I prefer to eat dinner..not be dinner. Demon Flash Bandit (Not an Entree)

Delicious New Burger At McDonalds

I'm sure many of you are wondering what I plan to write about today. I am wondering the same thing myself. What is worthy of being discussed by the famous dog blogger, Demon Flash Bandit? I could think of very few things worthy of my attention, but one does come to mind so I will write about it. That item is a new hamburger on the menu at McDonalds. This burger probably is not available all over the world, but it should be available at most McDonalds restaurants in the United States. This delicious new burger is available as an Angus beef burger or with crispy or grilled chicken. I personally went with the beef. This is a delicious burger. It has bacon, cheddar cheese, and fried onions. I thought the burger was brought here from a dog who had crossed over the bridge into heaven and brought back a burger so all us dogs here can have a taste of heaven while still here on Earth. If you are at McDonalds, and see the burger on the menu, remember that this is a burger recommended by me, Demon Flash Bandit. I've always said that you can make any food better by adding bacon, and this burger is no exception to my rule! Demon Flash Bandit (Praising New McDonalds Burger)

Birds Should be Executed

I have been unable to write a blog for about 4 days because my computer caught a virus. I warned that machine to get its flu shot, but the smart aleck computer listens to a dog about as well as the humans do. Since I have been unable to write my blog, I have been relaxing and catching up on other things that need to be chewing on a rawhide bone which I have found a very enjoyable way to spend the day. Of course, I've also been taking care of the sick computer--bringing it fluids, and feeding it memory soup. I don't think that is helping the virus, but the computer seems to enjoy the attention. While having some extra time on my paws to enjoy, I decided to watch the best of the Mr. Ed television show. I like Mr. Ed, and consider it to be a good show, but there was one episode where Mr. Ed liberated a bunch of birds. This is where Mr. Ed and I disagree. Birds should not be liberated--they should be executed. If Mr. Ed was a dog instead of a talking horse, he would know this fact. However, the rest of the episodes were good, and I recommend them to anyone who has not seen the show in the past--or who has seen it because it is good to watch again.

Demon Flash Bandit: Superdog!

I was unable to write a blog yesterday so the humans probably had a bad day in which they just sat around wondering what to do with themselves. Unless, of course, that human is wise enough to have a dog of his own to tell him what to do. Without us dogs, the humans are always lost! Believe me, it is hard enough for a dog like myself to keep up with all my activities. I have to make sure my own humans don't do anything stupid everyday, and that is a big task. Then I have to make sure Angel Zoom Smokey does not steal any of my treats. I also write a diary on which chose my diary as a diary pick today. Then I have serious napping to accomplish. I often wonder how I fit all my many activities into one 24 hour period, but I manage to to do. With all I do in a day's time, I must be as busy as Krypto, Superman's dog--and I accomplish so much without the aid of superpowers! Demon Flash Bandit (Superdog)

Items on Ebay

The humans tend to like added spices and sauces to their foods. I have no problem with this concept as a whole, but I do think that some of the humans do spend a bit too much money on the extras. I ran across this item today which proves my point. It is a gallon of McDonald's barbeque sauce from 1992 that was used on their McJordan burger for sale on ebay. The price was $9,995. I checked ebay and it isn't on there now so I am assuming that either it sold or it didn't sell and the seller hasn't chosen to relist the sauce. However, considering that the sauce is probably not edible (I'm not an expert on such things), and that you can get fresh sauce much, much cheaper, it does make me glad that us dogs don't waste money on silly things like that. I could buy a lot of dingo bones and toys with the extra money spent on that sauce. I think some of the humans have more money than sense, which judging from their behavior, seems to be quite accurate. However, this dog does not think it is a bad thing, but something that can be good for me. I will soon be listing a couple of items on ebay that I'm sure the humans will want to own. One is a half chewed rawhide bone that I am going to offer at the ridiculously low price of $500. and the other is 5 pounds of my excess fur for $5,000. The fur is offered at a higher price for those who might want to clone a great dog like myself. Be sure and look for my ebay identity is Demonflashbandit. When I sell my items, I'm going to invest in dingo bones. I'm not buying stock--I'm going to buy the actual bones. Here is the link for those who want to read the story about the expensive barbeque sauce for themselves: Demon Flash Bandit (Dog Who Is Planning to Buy a Lot of Dingo Bones)

Sled Rider: New Television Show

For those of you who enjoy the television show, Knight Rider, which is from the 1980's, you are going to love my new television show which I am producing and in which I am starring. That show is going to be called, Sled Rider. Of course, like the Knight Rider car, KITT, on the old Knight Rider program, the sled will be a super intelligent sled that will be able to talk and tell the dog what to do. The big difference will be that the dog will choose to listen to the sled--or not, and the dog will always be right. How can the dog be wrong when I'm playing that role? I'm sure the show will be a super big hit, and you can look forward to watching it when it comes on later this year. Demon Flash Bandit (Star of Sled Rider)

Spiderman: Not a Hero for a dog

I was sitting in my usual spot by the French doors looking out at the deck, and I saw a spider outside, and it reminded me that the humans actually have a super hero named Spiderman. Why a spiderman? Who knows? We dogs are way too smart to understand the humans. If I were a human and I saw a spiderman, I would smack it with my paw. Isn't it bad enough that those insects run around the place acting stupid and building webs everywhere? No dog would allow that kind of shenanigans in a dog house, but the humans, who incidentally tend to kill spiders, think it is okay to have a man who is basically a spider, and he is the "good guy". No wonder the humans have so many problems. I say if it spins a web like a spider and acts like a spider, then it is a spider, and we dogs would smack it with our paws.

Vote Demon Flash Bandit for President!

Since the Presidential election is fast approaching, I think I should tell you more about myself since I am running for that office. I was born in a barn in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Obviously, my parents did not have health insurance which is why I was not born in a veterinary hospital. I was born in late November so it was cold in the barn, but despite not having all my fur, I did just great. I was adopted by some nice humans who treat me like I should be treated. Normally, I would be very happy just hanging out and enjoying my life, but I can't do so when I know there are so many problems for dogs. We can't get a driver's license to drive cars. We can't go into a lot of places even though those places serve or sell delicious food that we would enjoy eating. If I am elected President, I will make life better for dogs everywhere. I will also make sure that the government quits spending money on any programs involving birds or squirrels because they are a waste of taxpayer dollars. In fact, if any money is spent on birds, it will be for weapons of mass birdstruction. Birds are horrible creatures who should not be allowecd to live. I hope I have your vote for President because it is time to have a dog leading a country instead of the stupid humans! Demon Flash Bandit (Dog Candidate for President of the U.S.)

Movie Review: Frankenweenie

I just saw the movie, Frankenweenie, for the second time, and the second time was as delightful as the first time. In this movie, Victor loses his dog, Sparky, in a tragic car accident. Sparky is a wonderful dog (what dog isn't?), and Victor is inconsolable at the loss. He is sitting in science class one day when the teacher shows how a dead frog can be made to move his legs with electricity, and Victor comes up with the idea of using electricity to bring Sparky back to life. He is successful, and he brings Sparky back to life, and Sparky is the same, sweet, lovable dog he was before he died. However, when his classmates learn of the experiment's successs, they try it themselves-with disastrous consequences. I do think that Tim Burton should have filmed this movie in color instead of black and white, but he has some odd obsession with filming in black and white. Maybe he is color blind and does not want the rest of us to see color. However, it is still a very good movie. I give it 4 paws up, a tail wag, some kisses, and I might even pee on it if I can get into the projection area. The same thing goes for Angel Zoom Smokey and Phantom Fast Snowman. This is a "must-see" movie. On the human movie scale, I give it a 20 out of 10 which means it is super good. By the way, just because I'm a dog does not mean that I have any bias regarding a movie about a great dog! Demon Flash Bandit (Movie Critic)

Conspiracy Victim and Bacon Lover

I wasn't able to write a blog yesterday due to problems with my computer. The modem died, and I wasn't even aware it was alive. I know many of you are probably thinking that things like that happen. However, this dog thinks that I am the victim of a conspiracy to keep me off the Internet. With the Presidential election getting closer, I'm sure that both the candidates are afraid that I will win since I'm going to get the dog vote. It isn't like the humans have a chance of getting the dog vote anyway. I have yet to hear them come up with one issue that dogs take seriously--like the quality of dog kibble or dogs being allowed to go anywhere they want to go. Romney, in particular, is running scared of not getting the dog vote since that incident where he took the family on vacation and had his dog riding on top of the car which did not go over well with the dogs out there. Believe me, those dogs will remember that on election day. Fortunately, I am back on the Internet to write my blogs and to keep everyone informed on the important issues--like when bacon day is observed, and how to keep your humans from moving to some stupid warm climate that would not be fun for a sled dog (even if I have no intention of pulling a sled--that is for the humans to do for the dog). By the way, there is a new day to celebrate which is Bacon for Demon Flash Bandit Day. It thought it up myself, and on this day (which happens to occur everyday), you send me bacon to eat. My address is: Demon Flash Bandit, Howell, MI, United States. Keep that bacon coming because I am very fond of bacon!!! Demon Flash Bandit (Conspiracy Victim and Bacon Lover)

Pumpkin Latte Shortage at Starbucks

I don't know why this is important, but, according to news sources, many Starbucks locations are having trouble keeping enough pumpkin latte for their customers. Evidently, the pumpkin coffee drinks are very popular among the humans. I don't know why since, if you ask this dog, anything with coffee in it is inedible and indrinkable (that has to be a word since inedible is a word). I think this problem could be solved very easily by adding apple latte to the menu. Personally, I think apples taste better anyway--particularly if you avoid the tart types, and stick with Gala, Fuji, etc. I think this would work great if they made a drink with caramel apple or chocolate apple, and of course, in my case, I would skip any coffee. That coffee stuff tastes awful to this dog. I hope Starbucks can survive the pumpkin latte shortage because, as I've written in past blogs, you never know when the pumpkins will go on another killing spree, and it would not be good for it to happen at a Starbucks location.

Magician Taking Advantage of Rabbit

I decided to watch a magician because sometimes a dog needs some entertainment. His act was interesting. He chopped a lady in half, and put her back together. He made her diasppear and re-appear. Then he pulled a rabbit out of a hat. I was okay with that trick until I decided to interview the rabbit after the show. The rabbit-I'll call him Peter to protect his real identity- said that the magician keeps him in a cage, and uses him in his act without Peter's permission. This does not seem fair to me so I talked to a dog attorney, and I was told that the rabbit should sue the magician. I don't know all the details about the case, but I'm sure that the rabbit will be well represented by the dog, and I'm sure you'll be reading about the case on the Internet in the future. I just want you to know that I'm the one who watched out for the nice rabbit. I hate it when the humans take advantage of their "pets"! Demon Flash Bandit (Helping a Rabbit)

Pumpkins Not Giving Trouble--Yet!

I stopped by a pumpkin patch yesterday to make sure that the pumpkins weren't causing any problems like they did in ancient times. (I covered the killer pumpkins in my recent blog about the origins of pumpkin carving.) I'm sure my readers will be happy to know that the pumpkins are behaving themselves and not causing any problems-at least not yet. A dog does have to keep watch on them to make sure they don't become killer pumpkins because killer pumpkins do not make good Halloween decorations. Sure, they still make good pie, but there are only so many pies a dog can eat. Don't let anyone fool you--the best part of the pumpkin pie is the whipped cream. If you don't have whipped cream, just toss the pie because it is not worth eating. I am planning to go trick or treating this year. I love candy, and I happen to think that my dog costume is a great costume. Of course, every year I make these plans, and every year the humans won't let me go. I don't see why I can't go and get my free candy. They let children trick or treat, and some of them are dressed as animals and monsters. I'm sure the humans would just think I'm a child in a dog costume. Just think of all the delicious candy a dog could eat when he gets home! I think is it unfair that dogs aren't allowed to go trick or treating. I think it is about time we dogs stand up for ourselves and demand our share of the candy. I happen to like candy just as much as any human. Demon Flash Bandit (Dog Who Loves Candy)

Zombies Save Human Using CPR

How many times have you seen zombies represented as the callous, uncaring undead who spend their time trying to eat the living? I found a video on the Internet in which zombies are actually using CPR successfully on a victim of a heart attack, and the instructions are given so that anyone can do it. This is a very helpful ad, and I think it could definitely save lives. Of course, after the zombies brought the lady back to life, they went on a feeding frenzy. However, the good news is that now the woman is a zombie who can help others if they need CPR. Here is the link: Demon Flash Bandit (Sharing Public Service Ad)

Movie Review: Hotel Transylvania

In this movie, Dracula builds a hotel (castle) to protect his daughter, Mavis, from humans. This hotel is frequented by various monsters because monsters are always welcome there. Mavis, who is celebrating her 118th birthday wants to get out and see the world, but Dracula does not want her to leave his protection. A human manages to sneak into the hotel, and Dracula wants to get rid of him. However, he does not want his guests to know that a human has "invaded" the hotel because they would no longer trust the hotel's safety if they found out. Therefore he has the human pass as a "monster" until he can get him out of the hotel. The plan would have went well had not Mavis met the human (even though she thought he was a monster when she met him), and fell in love with him. Dracula was very upset with this development, but what is a vampire to do in this situation? Watch the movie, and you'll find out. I was sold on this movie the first 5 minutes when Dracula said he would bite the head off a bird. I realized that this Dracula was a great guy who hates birds as much as I do. I give this movie 12 paws up (I borrowed Angel Zoom Smokey and Phantom Fast Snowman's paws), 3 tail wags (again I called in the other 2 dogs), and a half a day's worth of Siberian husky kisses. On the human movie scale, it is a 10 out of 10. It is a very entertaining movie with everything that you expect to see in a movie--romance, monsters, and a big castle. I might add that all the werewolf puppies were delightfully cute--as cute as dog puppies, and everyone loves puppies!!! Be sure and see this movie. It will make you wish you were a monster so you could stay at the Hotel Transylvania too! Demon Flash Bandit (Movie Critic)

Alligators Touring Long Island, New York

Two alligators who were vacationing on Long Island in New York, returned to their Florida home after a week of seeing all the sights in the area. The alligators had taken in two Broadway shows--Spiderman and The Lion King which both agreed were well worth the trip. However, they did indicate that neither compared to Capone's Dinner Theatre in Kissimmee, Florida. Of course, that was probably because alligators do enjoy eating, and Capone's is a dinner theatre. They also took in some museums, and in particular found the Metropolitan Museum of Art to be worth the visit. They made sure they went to the Bronx Zoo to see the famous cobra that was in the Internet news about a year ago having escaped from the zoo. The cobra gave them many valuable tips about what to see in the city since the cobra had been to many of the things himself and tweeted about them while on the loose. You would think he would have been found faster since he was tweeting where he was. I guess the humans who run the zoo aren't on twitter. The gators said they had a nice time, but like all vacations, there comes the time when you want to get back home, and they do love the swamps of Florida. They will be recommending a NYC vacation to their gator friends so I'm guessing that alligators might soon become a major tourist group in NYC. I'm sure New Yorkers will take advanatage of that, and start having more alligator friendly places--like maybe some "swamp" hotels so the gators will fell more at home there. I do hope that the gators wait until spring to do the travelling because I do not think that the gators would enjoy New York in the autumn or winter since they tend to like to be where it is warm. I also want to mention that the gators were pleased with their reception. They said they were worried that they might be mugged because of all the negative publicity NYC gets about muggings, but no one bothered them-and considering the popularity of alligator shoes and handbags, that shows that NYC is happy to have the gators visiting. For those who don't believe that alligators have been touring NYC, here is the link to the story: If you represent a city's tourist department, and you would like the alligators to visit your city, here is the address to contact them: Alligator Travel Agency, Everglades, Florida. I'm sure that they will send some representative gators to check out your city, and if it meets their approval, your city will be filled with alligators too!

The Reason Why Humans Carve Pumpkins

Today I want to explain the traditional carving of the Halloween pumpkin. Some of my readers probably wonder why the humans bother go to the trouble to carve a pumpkin. The origin of pumpkin carving goes way back in time....back so far that it is considered legend. For my more modern readers who have probably seen the "documentary" movies put out by Hollywood--"The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" series, then you know that sometimes vegetables go on killing sprees and have to be stopped by whatever means necessary. In ancient times, it was the pumpkins that went on the killing spree. The ancient humans did not know what to do...pumpkins were running amok and killing everything in sight. Of course, who do you think solved the problem? If you guessed a dog, then you would be correct. Sam, a Siberian Husky, was on a daily run when he noticed all the mayhem left behind by the pumpkins. He would not have believed that pumpkins were so horrible had he not seen the pumpkins in action with his own two eyes. The humans had been dealing with this problem for years, but had found no solution to it. However, Sam, being a dog, was much smarter than the humans. He returned to his pack and told them to get their teeth was time to "carve" some pumpkins. The dogs mushed to the pumpkin hide-out, and they used their teeth to carve the pumpkins into all sorts of cute shapes so that they were never a problem again. The pumpkins were tying to avoid being made to look so silly by the dogs so they stopped their bad behavior. When the humans saw what the dogs have done, they decided to invent knives so that they could carve the pumpkins before the pumpkins got nasty with them. Now every year the humans carve pumpkins at Halloween to remind the pumpkins that they had better not cause any more trouble. That is the true story of how pumpking carving originated.

Music in Space

Today I am going to discuss NASA and the space program. I think it is about time this dog pays tribute to the brave astronauts who went into space. Of course, they didn't do it until dogs had done it first, but that is typical of humans--send a dog first and then follow the dog. By the way, those early astronauts, when asked why space travel was better back then, said it as because at that time, it was not necessary to pick up a dog's poop. Yeah, the humans always find the important things to appreciate. My favorite astronaut was Louie Armstrong, the first man to play the trumpet in space. Until he went up in space, the humans weren't sure if instruments would play in space. Now there are bands who go into space to play--particularly novice musicians whose parents send them up in a rocket whenever they need to practice. Those young musical students owe so much to Louie Armstrong--who showed the world that you can send people who play music into space. I want to share Louie's famous quote: "one small note for man, one giant symphony for mankind". Although it is nice that the humans are able to play music in space, let's not forget those brave dogs who put their paws on the line before the humans. Demon Flash Bandit (Discussing NASA)
