Question by Who: Pennsylvania Hiking+Backpacking – Appalachian Trail?
In the Pennsylvania (Philadelphia to be exact – But I don‘t mind driving) area.
Looking to do a good 2 or 3 day backpacking trip in the area, where is a good website that
has a list of trail heads, or other information, or even simply personal experience of great
places to hike and backpack in the Pennsylvania area? Looking for moderately difficult
trials, but nothing extreme. Thank you!


Best answer:
Answer by leonard h
Just go to Eastern Mountain Sports in Philadelphia and check out their
maps/guidebooks. The Appalachian Trail is the King of all Trails in the US, and you
should experience it if you haven‘t before. You‘ll have to take a trail name and if you run
into a guy named Foxfire, hey, that might be me! Sorry, I don‘t know about any other
trails in PA; I‘ve only done the AT.

#72 There‘s More to Life Than Books, You Know…
by HOSTMEI R on NOVEMBER 30, 2011


#72 There’s More to Life Than Books, You Know…




Image by Arty Smokes (deaf mute)
"There‘s more to life than books, you know…
But not much more."
(The Smiths – "Handsome Devil")
I love bookshops and libraries and I‘m particularly enamoured of the "librarian look" –
women with glasses and their hair pinned up. Every Thursday I pop into the local
Waterstones, mainly because I fancy a woman that works there on that day. The problem
is that I have to buy something in order to have a reason to talk to her. It‘s becoming an
expensive habit and also means I have more books on my shelves than I‘ll ever be able to
read.
This week I finally picked up The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which I‘d not seen in the
UK before. Foxy woman gave me a bit of a filthy look when I slapped it on the counter,
perhaps because it‘s a very teenage book and I‘m seventy-five years old.
I took the quick snap above while no one was looking. It was a complete rush job as I sat
on the floor in the music section, set the auto-timer on my mobile and pretended to read.
I hadn‘t noticed the bright spotlight that appeared above my head and pretty much
ruined the photo. (See original in comments). No matter which effects settings I used in
Fireworks, I couldn‘t get the glare to fade realistically, so I had to crop it out. I tried
various other effects on the smaller image before deciding to just convert it to black and
white.
This image is a conscious nod to the far superior (and luxuriant) "book pictures" by Miss
A and Vaneska Thomz, but obviously comes from my more "realist" angle.
Now if, you‘ll excuse me, I have some reading to catch up on, so I have an excuse to go
book shopping next week…


Question by heyyy: what are some famous stories i could do parodies off of
for my math picture book?
im making a math (geometry) picture book for a school project. i already thought of ―a
christmas carol,‖ where a little boy says bah humbug to math and then through 3 math
related dreams he realizes that he loves it, etc. but what are some others? please, give me
some of your ideas!
Best answer:
Answer by LJ K
Hansel and Gretel (Disney-type version)…
…when the kids leave crumbs behind to find their way home (if I have the right story; if
not, maybe you know the one I mean)… they could leave numbers behind instead, and
whatever comes along (animals or birds?) to eat the numbers can‘t, but they DO mess up
the order of them. So H & G have to make the right angles (no pun intended) to get home
again.

boots with red laces?
I haven‘t seen them in years but I was recently flipping through a catalog (JCrew? I wish I
could remember which one?!?!) and it being a winter catalog the models were wearing
hiking boots, or maybe they were just regular boots but they had red laces. I remember
back in the day (like 1998) American Eagle or Abercrombie used to sell them (probably a
knock off version of whatever famous brand makes them). Does anyone know what I‘m
talking about? And if so could they please post the website of where I can find them?

Question by Taknev: never go jungle with a smart company?
Two guys were walking through the woods one day when one of them glanced behind
them and noticed a bear following them. He could see that the bear hadn‘t seen them yet,
so he quickly sat on the ground and began taking off his hiking boots. By the time his
friend noticed him sitting there, he had pulled his running shoes out of his backpack and
was putting them on.
His friend said, ―What are you doing ?‖


His friend pointed up the trail to reveal the bear coming towards them slowly but surely.
He said,‖ Man you‘re crazy. There‘s no way you can outrun that bear!!‖


As he was standing up, his friend said, ‖ I don‘t have to outrun the bear, I just have to
outrun you!‖

Inside Smarts Mountain Tower

Inside Smart hiking Mountain Tower




Image by mjtsai
Question by MRCOOL: Is pet smart good for socializing my 8 month German
Shepherd puppy?
So basically when my dog was a younger puppy I could only find small dogs to play with
him but he met sooooo many of my friends and family, short and tall he met them all. But
a week and half of bad weather kept us inside he started to get scared of tall people but
was still okay with small children and friends that were average height but then another
two weeks later he started to bark in a low tone but not lunging or growling, nothing to
show signs of aggression. He is trained to the point where he‘ll track with his nose,sit,stay
to a certain point, lay down, speak on command and shake paws. Hes very friendly to
friends cautious of big people as was demonstrated at pet smart where he started barking
at everyone. But when a small dog passed by he was waggin his tail and wanted to play.
When I signed up for training the trainer told me he just needed to get used to many
situations and even suggested to join her facebook page called (paws on the shore) where
he would meet many other dogs and situations on a hike. So I‘m wondering does it seem
like a good training plan for my scaredy cat shepherd. If not please tell me of better
training place near york region or Toronto, that you have experienced. Thank You.

Answer by King Les The Lofty
The socialisation period ended when Pup became 13 weeks old, although if well started
before that it can continue through 16 weeks old.
Although everyone calls it ―socialisation‖, that is actually a bad term, deluding people
such as yourself into thinking it means playing with people & pups. A more accurate term
would be exposure or familiarisation. The purpose is to (once Pup trusts you) expose it –
from a distance PUP considers safe – to every movement, reflection, scent, sight, sound,
texture to be found in its environment. It should be done on a 6ft/2m lead where there
are NO dogs running loose, with Pup allowed to try to ―explore in all directions at once‖
except when you need to haul it away from dangerous or disgusting things, or from a
scared human. And if Pup wants to sit & think about a new thing, or to hide behind you,
you should let it, patiently waiting still & silent until Pup decides to ignore or investigate
this new thing, whereupon you praise it – and, if it is still close enough, give it a rub or
pat of encouragement.
YOU should then have been in a training-club class (NOT a pet-shop play-group) starting
when Pup was 18-22 weeks old, so that you were coached to be an effective trainer.


You should NOT be encouraging Pup to play with other dogs. His attention should be
focussed on YOU and the other people & animals in your household.
Next time he barks, instantly wrap the leash around his muzzle so that he can‘t open it
enough to bark, then command him with ―Quiet!‖ or ―No bark!‖ or whatever simple
phrase you will CONSISTENTLY use when he is noisy at the wrong time.
Facebook pages, web-pages, commercial videos, books, telephone conversations – ALL of
them have the same flaw: They cannot OBSERVE YOU to see & hear your errors in use of
―the voices‖, timing, body-language, balance, use of rewards vs reprimands. Nor can they
observe your pet‘s reactions. And so they cannot coach you, they can only suggest
principles.
Most pet-shop ―trainers‖ have never subjected themselves to the ―proof of the pudding‖ of
competing in Agility or Companion-Utility Trials or Obedience Tests or SchutzHund
Trials.
If you (or a family member) had a phobia, would you force yourself (that person) to be
surrounded by what you (he/she) is scared of?
A far better plan is to keep your dog interested in as much as he is confident about, and
let scary-to-him things stay outside his ―bubble‖ (the distance outside which he couldn‘t
care less about things, but inside which he reacts – it‘s like birds that will let you reach
their ―bubble‖ before taking flight). In training classes you keep his attention fixed on
YOU, so that he comes to realise that if he ignores what other dogs & people are doing
they will ignore him but you will praise-&-reward him. At 8 months old he is salvageable,
although he will never be a bold pooch.

In its Links section click GSD_Clubs to get the head offices of the GSDCC and GSSCC and
find out where their nearest training class is (you don‘t want show-training, nor do you
want bite-work training, you want obedience training – and the agility+obedience and
tracking sections of SchutzHund might suit you well). Then switch to the Kennel_Clubs
to get the web-site of the CKC and find out which of its all-breeds clubs have training
classes near you.
Toronto has enough humans that there OUGHT to be several clubs you can choose from,
if you are happy to drive a bit. Even just York should have at least half a dozen.
