Update on the Cesar Milan training

Cesar MillanI wrote recently after acquiring our new dog about how we were employing the Cesar Millan training methods for the two books we had bought – How to Raise the Perfect Dog and Cesar’s Way.

Here’s a bit of an update…On the whole, with the odd glitch as you can see, yes this is one of the actual books – it’s working out pretty well. Both of the boys are way better on the lead, and generally behave pretty well together. They do occasionally have issues with each other and get a bit boisterous – but we expected that with them both being dogs.

I’ve read one of the books – must get around to the other – and pretty much watched most of everything he’s done for TV. It works – it really does. Though I do wonder sometimes that he seems to have something very special about him, almost a ‘Doctor Doolittle quality’, that we mere mortals can never hope to emulate. The man has a gift!

Cesar Millan

I wrote recently about having bought a couple of Cesar Millan books. Prompted by the arrival of a new dog in the house – we decided we really needed to get the new boy off to a good start and iron out a few (thankfully) minor discrepancies in our existing boy!

Well, I’ve just read the first of the two books we bought – Cesar’s Way – and we’ve also watched the entire first series of The Dog Whisperer as I’ve been reading the book. To be honest I found both the book and the TV series a bit repetitive – not necessarily a bad thing, as there is a simple philosophy behind everything he says. It’s really simple! The repetitive nature of both the book and the series sure makes the basic principles sink in… Read the rest of this entry »


2012Last night I sat and watched 2012. What a waste of an evening – some nice effects, but that’s about all it has going for it. Other than that, it’s cheesy story-lines, lame acting and pretty much totally unbelievable in terms of the science behind it. Essentially it’s nothing more than a kids movie… I haven’t seen anything quite so ridiculous since Independence Day (except perhaps for Transformers) – but at least the President died in 2012 and didn’t go on to save the world. I hope I haven’t spoiled it for anyone by giving that part of the story. I can’t imagine I have – because there’s not much to spoil. This has to be the worst film of the year…

I have only one word of advice for anyone planning to watch the movie in the near future – Don’t!

Battlestar Galactica

cylonAfter writing about about Tricia Helfer (I thought Boomer was pretty hot too…) last  Friday it got me to thinking – yet again – about why I loved Battlestar Galactica which is probably one of my favourite TV shows of all time..

I love science fiction – always have – but Battletar Galactica was something outstanding. Not only was it a great story with many twists and turns along the way – some of which were real nail biting stuff, it really dealt with some heavy issues related to humanity – our quest for power, how superficial most of us really are, religion, racism – it’s all in there if you look for it. And, in the end – what a fantastic way to round it up – genetics…

On top of that the Cylon Centurions are seriously kick ass robots, the effects and sets are fantastic – and as previously mentioned so many of the women in it are shall we say – easy on the eye… What man wasn’t green with envy watching Gaius Baltar crawl out of the sack having just had a six (Tricia Helfer) and a three (Lucy Lawless, formerly Xena). Every man’s dream! If you have no idea what I’m talking about – you need to watch the series…!

Six and Eight

Six and Eight

I remember commenting to my wife on what a lucky SOB he was – she knows what I’m like so I just got a wry smile, but still I thought I’d do the gentlemanly thing and fluff over my obvious lust for other women with something soothing to her ego. I told her she could join in!

I’ve watched the entire series three times now – and have just started on a fourth, and each time I see something new… I don’t think I’ll ever get bored with it.

The whole of Battlesta Galatica is available on Amazon!

Review of the Qur’an…

56574In the light of yesterday’s review of the bible I published, I thought I’d take a look and see if there was a similar style review of the Qur’an on Amazon and found this… Certainly a big difference in the intelligence levels of the authors. This is neither numerous or entertaining in the same way…

The real Quran, August 4, 2009

I bought this copy to read about the seventy-two virgins that a Muslim gets when he blows himself and someone else up. And the requirement that a Muslim kill at least f
