Dogs February 29, 2008 6:41 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Dharma, Pets
You can lead a dog to food, but you can’t make it eat. However, if you lead a dog to cat puke, it’ll lap the chuck up before you can bat an eye.
Terribly trying day ahead. I have a serious client deadline today. I mean probably the most serious I have ever had! Tommy’s financial aid paperwork is due today. I’m not yet sure if that means postmarked or hand delivered to the financial aid department. And Noah has been puking but seems to be nerves not flu. His doctor’s appointment is at 10am and either I’m taking him or watching the little two. If everything falls into place today, I’m celebrating tonight by going to bed before the children.1 comment so far

Thank goodness this is a leap year! February 28, 2008 8:45 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Philosophy
Everything is due tomorrow! Primarily Tommy’s financial aid paperwork has to be complete tomorrow. It should have been in the mail by now but I have had work deadlines consuming me. Speaking of work deadlines, I have those too..by tomorrow. Specifically, everything is due by the end of the month which is why I am glad this is a leap year!
I have been listening to A Buddhist Podcast. I highly recommend it. Jason Jarrett has produced a wonderful reading of The Buddha, Geoff and Me, a novel by Eddy Canfor-Dumas. Kevin Eldon does an awesome job of reading. Artwork is by Jessica Miller. Howard Jones does the music!
Within the first two chapters, the words of the character Geoff have directly applied to my current life situation. I found them calming. My panic and anxiety subsided. This was the right time for me to be listening to The Buddha, Geoff and Me!1 comment so far

Student: How did I ever come to have so many people depend upon me? All I ever wanted to do was hide in the woods.
Master: Can’t see the forest for all the people’s needs?

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Rep Mike Turner and Senator Haynes have proposed a change to the Tennessee Code that shall allow "any pupil so desiring to attend the school closest to the geographical location of the place of residence of the pupil." This bill is in committee this week so we must ACT NOW! You can get more information on this bill by going to the TN government state website: http://www.state.tn.us/
The bill is being proposed in both the house (2524) and senate (2891). This addresses the concerns of many families throughout Knox County who felt that their children should attend a school closer to their home.
I encourage you to call or email your representative. Also, if you have a relationship with anyone on this list or in the State House or Senate, please contact them as well.
Below is a list emails for State Officials representing Knox County.
Thank you for your time.

Knoxville Under Assault! February 27, 2008 8:03 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Of Being Dad
Is it fallout from Oak Ridge? What’s this white stuff in the air?! Oh, the children tell me its "magic we don’t have to go to school dust." I’m not buying it. They went off to school too overjoyed at the snow to concentrate on their studies. I know Noah will daydream and chant over and over that at any moment they will cancel school and send everyone home; he won’t hear a word today. He was first to notice the snow and gleefully asked, "do you know if they cancel school?!" to which I replied, "Yes they won’t." The children are very happy today. And yes, I bought milk.1 comment so far
Updated Presidential Candidates and Twitter February 26, 2008 11:18 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Politics, Touchy Subjects, United States
I have updated the post Presidential Hopefuls and their phones to reflect Hillary Clinton’s actual Twitter account. I could not find a Twitter account for Ralphie. Of course, I am on Twitter but I am not running for president.add a comment
