Yeah, ours don't get the chance to do this sort of thing, since we crate them when we go out -- but they do pull clever tricks like ring their "we'd like to go out" bell, then dash off and snag the sandwich we were eating while we're walking to the door to open it.
 
Beagles are know as being a very intelligent breed.  I recommend leaving behind kongs and rawhides so the dog has something to keep himself occupied with while you're out.  Also, consider using a baby gate or a crate if you're leaving the dog unattended for long periods of time (>6 hrs)

This is a disaster. NASA is being ripped to pieces by the shortsighted fools that are running our country, from the White House down. We need to be doing more to advance science, not less!

What makes Mozilla different than a traditional company, by a guy that speaks plainly.
I work at Mozilla. The non-profit organisation to keep the open web, well, open and alive. I work here because of a few reasons: We have a manifesto. Not a “company guideline” or “our vision” or “about us”. We mean business, but not in the sense of “what brings us the most money”.

I agree with the sentiment here; making people suffer like this is wrong.

The last paragraph of this article is going to prove hauntingly prescient: only the deaths of a lot of children is going to undo the harm done by this bogus study. Once enough children die, fear will drive people back to getting proper vaccines for their kids.

It shouldn't have to be that way. This is a tragedy that should never have happened; as far as I'm concerned, Wakefield is a mass murderer.
Key facts in the infamous study were altered to support the link, an investigative reporter found.

The steaks I've had at Peerless have always been so tender I could cut them with my fork. They're fantastically delicious and I can't recommend Peerless enough!
