    Talking Be Careful What Words You Use

    We have a boxer, and had one for 11 years before. I was looking for a pattern for boxers to quilt or appliqué and typed in "boxer patterns." My results were for men/boys boxer shorts!! lol I refined my search and found some cute patterns to download!

    I once searched for something with the word "blue" in it and got all kinds of vivid obscene results. I guess I am not very educated in the lingo because this happens quite frequently when requesting something that is seemingly innocent in nature.
    If I am aware before I request I can rephrase. Kind of like looking in the Yellow Pages. I once needed to call the local "Dump" but looked and looked and couldn't find a number. Finally got a cross reference and found it under "Sanitary Landfill". I guess you need to have a college education to use the Yellow Pages.

    Is this one of those "be careful what you ask for" moments?

    I also have Boxers-don't know if you saw the thread here, but Cuppi Duke has just made my Boxer pattern for me (Photo was posted last week) and had made several other dogs/cats-she sells her patterns-if you are still looking for a great Boxer, check hers out. I just bought 3 patterns from her!! I don't know how to post a link here, but look under the photos category in the main menu and find her posting of "Jill's Boxer". The photo I sent her and the pattern she made up is there too. She does commissioned work-just PM her. I can't wait to get my patterns and start!!

    my god=daughter had to study the NY state animal, the beaver. My best friend almost killed her husband when he suggested she google "beaver"! My friend convinced her husband and Lily was fine!

    Funny! When our kids were in school years ago, one had an assignment regarding politics and Washington DC. We typed in whitehouse.com instead of .gov on the internet and were shocked at what came up. Not cool when the kids are young and the parents are the ones typing in the address and 'stuff' comes up instead of where the President lives.

    Years ago when we first got the internet, our oldest son typed in White House... thinking...the White House.. well lets just says.. ummm... not exactly the White House he nor I was thinking... lets just say at the age of 13 he got a lesson (eyes full also) as did mom... never trust what you type in.. it may seem innocent...but oh wow what you could end up getting.

    Long a go when I was new to the web I did a search for "Hancocks of Paducah", I accidentally put a d in hancocks.....boy what I got was an education....who knew there were so many sites dedicated to what I would think a very narrowly specialized practice.

    I don't know how to post a link, but if you pull up cuppi Duke and click on her posts, she posted it on Feb 7th, titled "Jill's Boxer". Or, just look on the photos thread (probably a page or two back by now) for Feb 7th and find "Jill's Boxer". If I knew how to give you the link, I would. Let me know if you don't find it, I'm sure someone here can for you
