Let's see a cat do this!

K-9 units serving in combat have made the news this week when it was announced that the Squids from SEAL Team 6 who killed Osama bin Laden took a dog with them on the mission.
More and more the military is coming to rely upon war dogs in combat and the Marine Corps in particular has a long and storied history with them dating back to World War II and the fight against Japan in the Pacific theater.

My mom has a 5-6 year old Dell laptop that is giving her a "battery low, needs to replaced soon" warning. My mom was told that when the battery goes, she won't be able to use the computer even when the power cord is connected. Is this true? It's $150 to replace.

Mom only uses her computer for email, surfing the net and some word processing. During the next few weeks/months she will have a need to watch movies.
  • How would she fair with an ipad? 
  • We don't have wifi in the house so she'd have to get a wireless data plan, right?  
  • Is a 3G ipad as fast as her old dell on broadband?
  • How do you download movies? Do you need a service or do you buy them?

Looking at him makes me very happy. Being with him could make me ecstatic. He may even make me forget.
I'll be needing lots of him for the next few weeks.
