Silky Terrier – Are Silky Terriers Good Dogs to Own?

In my humble opinion, Silky Terriers are the best dogs to have as a pet. This does not mean that the Silky is a good fit for every person or family.

Knowing what your expectations are for a pet is very important. Below are three character visits of the Silky Terrier. So, you'll be able to determine if the Silky is right for you.

1. Small Dog, Big Attitude

This breed of dog comes in a small package, but has a big attitude. Standard size of a Silky is 8 to 10 pounds and 9 to 10 inches high. But do not let their size fool you. They definitely think they are a big dog and have big dog hits. They are courageous and great watch dogs.

But be careful, if given run of the house they will take it. You have to let them know who is "alpha dog" in your house – consistently. Even though these dogs are reliably small, they are very dominant and need a family that is going to have the time and energy to teach them good behavior.

Because of their size they are able to live in an apartment or in the country comfortably. But they do require daily activities or walks … otherwise they will get fat and lazy.

2. Loyalty & Devotion To Family

They are very loyal to their family and will do almost anything to please them. Normally they will pick a family member and become their shadow. Following their every move. This is not to say they do not love the entire family. But it is very heart warming to get up and go into another room to find your Silky Terrier right trailing behind you.

3. Social Butterflies

Silky Terriers are playful and inquisitive by nature. They love to run and play. Watching them with other Silkys or one of their toys is quite a treat. Some of them will shake the toy all around and really get into making it squeak.

They also love to socialize with other people and pets. Taking them to the store or "bye-bye" is a great way to do this.

Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 1 of 4)

April 29th. 2017


Do You Really Want to Be a Tournament Bass Fisherman? (Part 1 of 4)


By Randy (Randman011) Yancey



It’s early, for me and most folks anyway, 5am on a Saturday morning! As I sit here at my dining room table, I’m feeling guilty. I’m also felling disappointed, blah and a little ‘down in the mouth’!

Yes, guilty!


You see, I’m a ‘life-long’ bass fisherman, who in the past 3-4 years, has been consumed with my love of the wonderful sport of fishing, especially bass fishing! By consumed, I mean, lately especially, as I’ve gotten older, I not only ‘do it’ but I live it, think about it, study it, speak it, watch it, and even dream about it!


I know, it sounds ridiculous, even to me as I write it!


Yet, as I sit here, having my first (and usually my last) cup of coffee of the day, I know for example that somewhere around 40 miles from my front door, between 20 and 25 of my ‘fishing’ buddies are just now taking off in their bass boats, rain gear already in use, for our bass club’s fourth official ‘points’ tournament (our club ‘skips’ January) of the 2017 season.


Our club, of which I’m one of the ‘newest’ members, this being my first year, is one of the oldest, and longest lived clubs here in southwest Missouri. Tri County Bass Club, of St. Roberts, Missouri (near Fort Leonard Wood) according to its Facebook page anyway, was founded in 1989.


Because of the club’s location near FLW, is made up of mostly D.O.D employees/contractors and/or US Army soldiers (Thank you for your service, by the way!) these guys are the best! It’s no wonder to me why the club has such ‘longevity’. These guys are task oriented, ‘get it done’ type people, the ‘best’ of the best, so to speak!


“Now, as far as explaining my feeling ‘guilty’, I should explain a little bit about myself. I’m in my early 60’s, recently ‘semi-retired’ after a 40+ year career in sales, sales management and business ownership, mostly here in the midwestern United States. After having some health problems, stemming mostly from both not handling ‘stress’ well, and spending 20 years as a ‘workaholic’, I decided that I was going to work less and spend more time doing and spending time on or with whose activities or people I most enjoyed or loved!

That probably is one of the main reasons I’m alive to write this story. When I had ‘open heart’ surgery at the young age of 43, I totally had to change some things about how I viewed life. Life, meaning money, things, people and ‘how I spent my time’, etc. That was in 1997! I made a commitment to myself, and unknown to them, my family. That commitment was that I was going to spend more time doing those activities or spending time with those people, whom meant the most to me. And less time working and chasing those things like money, bigger homes, and ‘things’ in general. It was what saved me.


Herein lies the root of my guilt!”


Back to bass fishing.


The reason I sit here feeling guilty is quite simple really. Since Monday, I have spent countless hours, and several twenty dollar bills getting ready for this Saturday’s bass club tournament. Including a ‘not so successful’ (1 post-spawn scrawny 15” keeper and 7 non-keepers) pre-fishing trip to Stockton Lake on Tuesday, I easily spent 30-40 hours focusing on the upcoming bass tournament. Including adding ‘new’ fluorocarbon line to 3 or 4 of my 11 or 12 fishing rigs, watching constant bass fishing videos and TV shows and re-tying almost ‘all’ of my fishing rigs, some more than ‘once’. Buying tie down straps for my most recent ‘project’ bass boat, $40-$50 worth of jig heads, single spins, soft plastic, and so forth. Can you relate?

10 Books for Success With Horse Racing

Horse Racing can be difficult to get started in for the novice learning about form, track conditions and which jockey is doing well at the moment. For those of you looking to get a leg up here is list of ten of the best books to help you improve your knowledge of horse racing. This list is totally subjective and opinion of the best books will differ. I invite you to post any other books that you might feel are beneficial to the other members.

1. Handicapping 101: A Horse Racing Primer, Brad Free (2007)

Winning at the races doesn’t mean you need an advanced IQ, but only that you have a basic knowledge of racing mechanics–this book teaches you that. Free’s basics of handicapping are easy for a beginner to understand as well as being a refresher for the veteran horseplayer. This book explains how a horse’s individual characteristics such as health, habits, and degree of ability all come into effect when deciding whether or not to bet on that horse. A horseplayer who learns how to recognize and use the characteristics of the horse can then realizethat winning bets are in his or her future. This primer gives practical ways to pick winners and avoid losers.

2. Betting On Horse Racing, Richard Eng (2005)

Want to be able to go to the racetrack with a group of friends and feel like you know what you’re doing? Want to be able to place smarter bets that increase your chance of going home with dollars in your pocket? Reading this book answers those questions for you. With more than 20 years’ experience in the horse racing industry, Eng focused this book on learning how to bet and how to increase your odds of winning. He doesn’t specifically go too in-depth into handicapping skills. This book teaches you how to read the race forms, which serious bettors use to increase their odds of winning. There is an excellent glossary at the end where the author explains all industry terminology so that you can understand every word he uses to describe the horse racing experience.

3. The Complete Handicapper, James Quinn (2013)

This book can help the beginning horseplayer as well as the experienced handicapper.

4. How To Turn Any Racetrack Into Your Own Money Machine (And Be Just One of the 2% That Do), Greg Boomer Wry (2005)

The world of horse-race handicapping can be very exciting, and this book helps to open it up to you. It is designed to teach you all there is to know about handicapping horse races, from learning solid betting strategies, to successfully managing your money so you have better chances to succeed. Through it, you will learn skills to last a lifetime. This inclusive book uses very understandable terms which are defined and explained, at times by giving examples. You will learn how to analyze a race by reading and understanding The Daily Racing Form and grading each horse to determine whether or not to bet on the race.

5. Bet With The Best: Expert Strategies From America’s Leading Handicappers, DFR Press (2001)

At the time it was published, it was the most comprehensive book on handicapping thoroughbred horse races to be published in over a decade.With nine different chapters written by nine different authors on nine different topics of the horse racing world, this book will appeal to beginners as well as expert handicappers. Example chapters are Beyer on Simulcasting, Quinn on Class, and Brohamar on Pace. If you don’t want to purchase 9 separate books on these 9 separate topics, then this book will be a good place to start to begin learning about each of them.

6. Betting Thoroughbreds for the 21st Century: A Professional Guide For the Horseplayers, Steven Davidowitz (2009)

This book is the revised and updated third edition to the author’s classic “Betting Thoroughbreds”, first published over three decades ago. The book is so popular and has such dedicated followers among both new racing fans and veteran players, that it has been the horse racing industry standard for handicapping for decades.This newly revised edition explains recent industry changes, such as synthetic surfaces, ‘super trainers’, wagering syndicates, computer software programs, and more. Have you ever looked at the past performance of a horse and wondered what it was doing in the race today? This book will answer that question as well as countless others. Diverse topics such as track bias to trainer intent are among those covered. This industry-standard handicapping book will become a favorite read for beginning horseplayers as well as a welcome refresher for experienced horseplayers.

7.The Best of Thoroughbred Handicapping: Advice on Handicapping, James Quinn (1987).

Quinn’s book contains 48 essays by some of the most knowledgeable thoroughbred handicappers, including Tom Ainslie, Andrew Beyer, William Quirin, and himself. Individual essays explainthat author’s system and give examples of how each works. Some of the systems are too complex to condense into one chapter, and the essays difficult to follow. But generally, the essays stimulate the horseplayer’s appetite to read the original books which are listed in an annotated bibliography. Topics ranging from betting strategy to pace handicapping to visual analysis of the horses in the paddock make this encompassing collection of writings useful to every type of handicapper. If you are looking for a well-rounded book on handicapping methodologies, this may be the one.

8. Exotic Betting: How To Make The Multihorse, Multirace Bets And Win Racing’s Bigger Payoffs, Steve Crist (2006)

“Handicapping a race is only half the battle, betting is the other”. Crist’s strategy teaches the horseplayer to make the most money by betting on numerous exotic bets, including the daily double, exacta, trifecta, quinella, superfecta, pick 3, 4, and 6. Crist says this book is not about picking winners at the trackbut teaches that how to bet is as important as who you like–especially in the 21st-century world of horse racing where new ways to bet such as the superfecta and pick four have surpassed the routine win, place, and show betting of days’ past. Both serious and casual horseplayers will benefit from understanding the strategies and mechanics of making these exotic bets.

9. Modern Pace Handicapping, Tom Brohamer (2000).

“Pace makes the race” is one of the oldest sayings you will hear at a racetrack, and this book is the go-to book on pace handicapping. For beginners, reading about running style will give insight into how the race will be run and which horses will benefit from the likely pace scenario. For experts, the Sartin Methodologychapter sets out a new method of analyzing the pace of a race. The author used the Sartin Methodologyto develop his own technique for handicapping horse races. He looked at running styles, turn times, track variants, energy distribution, and par times in predicting race strategy and outcome. Daily Racing Form charts are placed throughout the book.

10. Ainslie’s Complete Guide to Thoroughbred Racing, Tom Ainslie (1988)

This third edition is referred to as the “most complete, comprehensive and reliable guide to handicapping and understanding thoroughbred racing”. Even though some of its ideas may sound outdated by today’s racing standards, countless generations of people cut their teeth on the basic handicapping skills Ainslie teaches–skills necessary to help you become ‘expert handicappers’ and to be able to consistently pick winners at the track. Some of the basics the author covers are class, distance, form, speed, track conditions, jockeys and trainers, and breeding.

How UX Helps In Detecting a Website’s Strong and Weak Points

How UX Mapping Plays a Vital Role in Website Success and Failure

UX showcases the interface of a website apart from depicting or representing each aspect of a user’s experience on a website.

What is UX?

UX is something that is experienced from the front of users. It is where users interact with the website. It may also refer to backend where the designers toil to regulate and enhance the website design. According to research, a number of UX factors must be considered, these include significance of visual design and how it is linked with a website’s ease of use. However, a UX map can depict the performance of your website. It can display if the interaction with website left customers pleased or not. The UX map tool aids designers in enhancing UX of a website by blending customer journey map ideas with the layout of a website. This enables readers to access information about website performance and the ways in which customers interact with it. The map depicts the areas of improvements for designers and areas where the functions are performing par excellence. A study of areas where customer is not just satisfied, but also delighted can give an idea on improving other pages of a website.

Categories of Maps:

UX mapping was initiated just after the inception of UX design. It was something beyond the traditional UI. Companies have utilized customer journey maps for a long time to jot down routes taken by customers to arrive at purchase decisions. UX mapping is a technique which brings together methods of creating and applying these maps. It also includes overlaying the methods with maps of UI layout and interaction to result in a completely new type of map. These UX maps possess a great deal of information on interaction of a customer with a website. Owing to the fact that UX maps may contain different types of information, the maps can manifest in a variety of forms. Some are in the form of flowcharts of differing complexity, depicting web design elements and user interactions with them. Other maps might be vague and just show customer activity and give inference about customer emotions and intent.

Those creating us maps will decide on the form of the map; as there is no single way designed to create such a map. UX designers have the flexibility to create a variety of maps to represent their needs and also the functionality and utilization of the website.

During the process of creating a UX map, designers can arrive at techniques used to form customer journey and empathy maps. These map types have high prevalence. Both possess valuable information related to UX maps. However, when it comes to information about web design, they lag behind. This must be added by designers to design maps of website’s UX.

Customer journey maps, record the experience of customers in terms of their interaction with a business. These maps jot the journey through different key points, beginning with the formation of the company and concluding with a purchase (or a different ending point for those businesses who are not involved in the sale of products or services). After laying down these points, questions related to customers are asked to gain an idea about wishes, emotional states, goals, and other things. This results in a map depicting how customers carry out their interactions with businesses. This map contains valuable information about ways to enhance customer experience.

UX designers have a lot to learn, about creating maps for UX, from customer journey maps. Amateur designers learning to create a UX map should gain basic information about customer journey mapping and design a map which brings together the information contained in those maps and information related to customer interaction.

When it comes to empathy maps, they are less involved in comparison to customer journey maps. Generally, empathy maps assume the form of a simple chart using example, a customer in the middle approached by different quadrants having information on their tasks, feelings, influences, obstacles, etc. UX designers can create UX maps, emphasizing customer needs, using the empathy maps.

Designing UX map:

UX mapping is yet to evolve. Study is still on to know about the information that a UX map must contain and the way it must be presented. Though the work is on, the importance of UX maps is not underestimated by businesses.

The steps required to create a UX map differ from company to company, website to website, and designer to designer. As this concept is in the initial stages, the steps used to create a map are not specific. Companies, which have already developed UX maps, follow different steps for creating a customer journey map, changing them to present information related to customer’s journey through a website rather than through the business.

To easily make a UX map all you need to do is take the steps for creating a customer journey map and replacing the term “company” with the term “website””.

  • Establish personas for target customers-the data from the site cannot be utilized optimally if there is no information about ideal consumers or factors that attract them to a website initially.

  • Jot down the path of the customer through the website. The way a buyer interacts with it, the way the customer will feel on the landing page during shopping and checkout, for instance.

  • Make a comparison of customer expectations with what the site actually delivers.

  • Segregate areas where customer’s expectations are not being met.

  • The turning points; moments where users arrive at a decision.

The map includes all this information in a single layout which can assume the most user-friendly form.

Though the creation of UX maps is in the initial stages, the benefits of a good map are many. The best ways to create our maps are yet to be discovered, but the basics of a customer journey mapping can still be implemented. You can use these to start creating UX maps. A designer has the capability to enhance a website design using such a map by showing strong or successful points of a website. This results in a great user experience and also benefits areas where a website is lagging behind.

Periodization Training For Golf

The idea of periodization has been around a very long time for athletes at all levels. The concept is simple. If you started with the goal in mind, let’s say it was to win the Club Championship or place in the top 3 in your next Amateur event, then you would plan accordingly.

Generally, an annual plan is used, although it is not uncommon to use longer periods of time especially when working with a younger developing athlete.

Periodization occurs when you break down all of the segments into actual manageable parts, always keeping the long term goal in mind. Your master plan may be broken down into which phase you are in, for example, are you in your competitive stage or pre-competitive stage? This information is then used to determine which strategies offer the most benefit at any given point in time.

If you use a holistic approach to golf improvement, then you also periodize each important component as in the physical, mental, technical and strategic side.

While this many sound like a lot of information to track, this is the very point of periodization. Breaking down all of the important parts into simple tasks you can complete daily and/or weekly which fit comfortably and naturally into achieving your long term goal.

What is the real payoff for you? Well, just like the pros, when you prepare in this manner you leave nothing to chance. You have less margin for error and a higher probability of meeting or succeeding your goals.

To give you an idea of how to periodize a program for golf, first consider your competitive season, then employ the following ideas.

Phase 1 – Restoring optimal flexibility or range of motion in hips, spine and shoulders.

Phase 2 – Choose adaptation exercises where the main objective is to involve many muscle groups while preparing joints, tendons and ligaments for the work ahead. Build a solid base of support through stabilization exercises.

Phase 3 – Build strength. Consider increasing your loads, time under tension and create an opportunity for increased force production.

Phase 4 – Power production. Not you can convert all of your previous efforts to completion of the process where all energy is stored and transferred in efficient movement patterns for the benefit of your golf swing.

Phase 5 – Active recovery and rest. Don’t forget that every body needs a recovery period so it can maintain gains made throughout the year while protecting the body from injury.

MLB Handicapping Picks Season

Well the 2008 MLB baseball season is upon us and thus our staff of handicappers are ready to roll as we have had all off season to fine tune our systems so that we can continue with our winning ways and top our ridiculously profitable 2007 season. As proof as to how locked in we were last year, our 2007 final overall record handicapping games was an astounding 301-186 which comes out to a 61 percent success rate. Over our 10 years in business, we have had only one losing season in baseball and have averaged a 58 winning percentage over that span. So obviously last season was a topper in the winning department. In sports gambling thats about as good as you can do but say but we aim to do even better. We uncovered results of winning trends and systems last season and even more this off season so we can achieve more success and further separate ourselves from the rest of the pack. Our performance in the MLB handicapping World Series was also a success last season as we went 21-10 to finish in the top percentile across the nation. So hence our staff has credentials that are tops in the field and we look forward to bringing more and more winners to our loyal customers.

Now lots of people ask us how we do it. How does our office of handicappers operate? How do they come up with their winners? Well to give you a better idea of ​​who we are, we have a group of a dozen pro cappers that have been in our employ in most of their cases from the beginning. We added a few more over the years to our stable and they separate them from all cappers in that baseball is their designated specialty. Since we do football and hockey also, we have pro cappers for those sports only just like in baseball. This keeps them focused on one task and leads to great results. So as far as the daily ritual is concerned, our guys begin their work the night before by analyzing the newly released Vegas lines for the next day's games and then spend a great deal of the night analyzing stats and winning gambling trends from each prospective game. They then tally up whats called a "green trend" which is a significant winning angle that favors one side in a game with obviously more green angles making a certain play stronger on the surface. They then begin to pare down the neutral games (which means there are green angles going in both directions or on both teams that are going to play tomorrow) and focus in on three or four of the strongest angles. Those games that have the most green angles over a certain number are labeled BETS BETS and those that have a nice amount of green angles are labeled STRONG PLAYS. They then report their picks to the web specialists who then release the analysis and picks to the paying public which usually takes an hour due to the volume. Then we sit back and watch the action. Thats pretty much it. We already are off to a 7-3 stars this young season with a 3-1 showing in BEST BETS. We hope to turn a lot more profit for our customers and continue our ascent to the title of being the best baseball handicapper in the country.

Swimming and Candida

Whether you have a vaginal yeast infection, a problem with oral thrush or a general feeling of malaise due to a suspected overgrowth of candida albicans, you can benefit from the knowledge of natural ways to fight candida.

Many things do positive things for your body and in terms of yeast infection; swimming might be thought of as a gray area. While we know exercise is something that can help fight candida and that being sedentary can help them thrive, you might be wondering about yeast and swimming and specifically swimming in a public or chlorinated pool. This article addresses that issue.

Swimming and Candida

You might think that having a yeast infection means you cannot do certain things you enjoy such as exercising and swimming. If you’re feeling lousy with the symptoms of this illness you might not feel like doing anything but resting until it passes but activity can not only help you recover but it can help you reduce the likelihood of getting yeast infections at all. Exercise can actually help you by putting your body in a better position to fight off the candida.

While some are concerned about being submerged in chlorine and how that throws off the balance in the vaginal area, if you are doing all the right things with respect to following a candida diet, the benefits of exercise with swimming can be helpful.

Is Candida Contagious?

Some people are concerned that if they go swimming, they’ll either aggravate their infection or pass it on to others. You cannot catch candida infections from another person by swimming in the same water and if you are suffering from it, swimming in a public pool will not pass your infection onto someone else swimming in that pool.

Swimming and various exercises can actually be helpful in fighting candida. Not only does the bacteria not thrive in a healthy body but they can’t populate well in the presence of an alkaline state and by swimming and doing other exercises, you will be oxygenating your body and increasing your immune system’s functions to fight off bacteria overgrowth.

Caution Regarding Yeast and Swimsuits

It’s important to be aware that there is an aspect of swimming that you should be careful of beyond the fact that chlorine can alter the pH of the vaginal area. It’s well known that keeping the area moist and damp can increase candida populations. When swimming, be sure to dry the body well promptly afterwards. Excessive moisture can aggravate symptoms and create a great breeding ground for yeast.

In terms of naturally fighting yeast, beyond exercising, you need the right food in your diet. There are candida based diet and lifestyle plans that help to create a harmonious level of bacteria in the body. Our bodies has many types of flora that have distinct jobs and the right nutrition, the right amount of rest and a healthy body will all contribute to a scenario that lets the good bacteria flourish and keep the harmful ones at bay.

English Bulldog Training – 4 Things You Have to Know About English Bulldog Training

One of the many things I’ve learned throughout my life as a dog trainer and breeder is the intelligence that the English bulldog posses. These are extremely intelligent creatures and are very quick to learn and extra eager to please their owners. It should be said however, that it does take special techniques and the proper knowledge of English bulldog training to get it just right. While there is no possible way to cram everything you need to know about training you’re English bulldog into one small article, here are some basic guidelines to follow by:

The first thing you need to know is that the English bulldog is a very smart animal that responds very well to almost any kind of activity that involves him/her having to undergo the problem solving process. However, as smart as this dog is, it does have a tendency to be rather lazy and inactive, so stimulation for this breed needs to occur over a longer period of time in small and short sessions. Anything over 15 minutes and you’re English bulldog will probably get too bored and simply walk off.

The second thing you need to note is that because of the English bulldog’s tendency to be on the lazy and cozy side of things, it is not a very physically active dog, even though its build might make it appear to be. Of course it is still very important that you throughout the life of the dog, small exercise sessions are put into the English bulldog training routine. This is not just so the dog can expel energy and become more focused for training sessions, but for the dog’s health as well.

Thirdly, the English bulldog while lazy can have a dominance streak in its personality; this of course needs to be cured. When training an English bulldog, the owner has to be strong and firm, while always avoiding hitting the animal. While these breed doesn’t require an extremely dominate personality in its master, it does need someone who is at least semi-dominate to ensure that the bulldog does not get too out of hand and grows up to be well mannered.

The last, but surely far from least English bulldog training principle that needs to be mentioned is that of proper socialization. This is true for any breed of dog, and far too often do I see it never mentioned and left out of a dogs training routine all together. This principle is far too essential to let it go without a second thought. If you do not properly socialize and dog, it will become overly aggressive and protective towards any other animals or strangers outside of the family he/her knows.
