Dog walks

I went for a nice dog walk the other day at lunchtime, whilst Mrs Zoo Keeper was out with friends. Coco and I were having fun, throwing and fetching a stick (I’m not sure which one of us is the retriever) and I thought I’d take a couple of pictures on my phone to send on and show what a good time we were having:

Good Boy Rawhide Chomp Stix Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

The perfect, healthy treat!

Owning a chocolate labrador like Coco means treats are a requirement. Everywhere.

If we go out, Coco gets one of these sticks. 100 sticks lasts a good while – maybe not quite three months, but well, she’s a lab! They’re not full of fat or colourings or other nasties – they’re just plain old, healthy, desirable rawhide.

Spring is here?

So the other day was the Spring equinox.  Depending on how you look at it, today is either the 3rd or the 4th day of Spring.  Last year at this time, we were closing in on 19 or 20 Celsius.  Today, it’s below freezing and I’m seeing snow drifts deeper than anything I’ve seen for the past thirty odd years, since I was a child.

RDP to Windows Server 2012 from Windows XP

I came across an annoying little issue today.  Whether it be down to the default settings of Windows Server 2012, or one of the hardening settings of our corporate build, I don’t know, but it’s annoying either way.

My corporate provided laptop operating system is mandated at Windows XP.  I regularly (90+% of every day) use it to remote control servers, and this is normally through RDP (I prefer RDP over vSphere client for Virtual Machines too).
