Quote of the Day and Referrals

"I would cover myself in babies if I was cold" Why this particular comment? Well here is the background. This was in response to a news story about a baby that had a snake in the crib wrapped around her leg. It was a king snake (non-poisonous) and way too small to eat the child it was probably just trying to stay warm so hence Jim's comment. Personally I just thought the mother was scared seeing a snake and was over reacting a bit but no harm was done or could have been done by this small snake. She stated that she was having the child monitored by a pediatrician, why? because she was touched by a snake? Seems like a waste of a co-pay to me. Anyway, Jim's mind works differently; he immediately becomes the snake and wants babies to keep him warm, HUH? He then said "well in the absence of a good heat rock."

We used to have a snake, she was a Ball Python named Mathilda. She did not survive the move to CA. I don't have a digital picture of her but if I find one I will scan and post sometime.

On another note, the CCAA have referred LID's to January 20, 2006. 8 days this month which is pretty good but most of us were hoping for a 10 day batch. This means that there are 460 LID's to go. Slowly but surely we are getting there. I am hoping for a speed up sometime but not counting on it. I figured it out, for us to have a referral by this time in 2010 (36 months or 3 years of waiting) the CCAA needs to start referring an average of 20 days a month. So far there is no indication that it is going to speed up that much so I am now think 2011 for a referral? But I need to stop predicting because 1. I am no good at it and 2. anything can happen right?
