I am indifferent.  I just replied to keep your name alive.

One of the most wonderful group like pink floyd or radiohad or the fun loving criminals or the arctic monkeys or the black keys

Beautiful dogs. I encountered two of them when they were skylarking and went racing past me at close quarters. As the owner apologized, one of them came up and sniffed his quivering apologies. All skin and bones...and only three legs. Lost one to cancer but he could still move.

I bought this on CD during my first ever visit to the US. I was so excited to be there in Florida, visiting all the theme parks. It was Summer '94. We watched OJ slow-speed down the highway and my first-born son was conceived in our dinky hotel room in Kissimee.

I just love this.

Before Radiohead, this filled the bill quite nicely... Still sounds killer-good after all these years, too! Seems to embody that period well...

Yeah, I wouldn't have said so without prompting, but I kinda sorta get a Saucerful of Secrets vibe from it.

Yes ColoradoJohn,  I feel the same but can't really explain why. Maybe nostalgia is kicking in and it reminds me of a time that on the one hand is not so long ago but also of a time in our lives that we will never get back,

The treatment of these dogs is shocking.

Greyhounds are very sweet dogs known as the 45 mile an hour couch potatoe.

 
Dog racing is big in England, particularly in London and the South where there are scads of dog tracks. They are closely associated with dodgy practices and local crime organisations, and (at least when I was in the betting industry, 20 years ago) you were as likely to see the Second Coming as an honest dog race.

A friend of mine had a retired racer as a pet, Bobby, and he was sweet and great fun. One day I was taking him out for walkies at a local park, he ran off and did his running round in circles at Mach 2 for a few minutes, then just dropped dead. Just like that. I was crushed, as was my friend, but at least he went quickly. Greyhounds: live fast, die young.

I've got $10 to win on the black dog. I saw him take a dump right before the race!

Two of them raced up to greet me one hot summer day in Montrose Park. One minute I'm reading a book about a cholera outbreak, the next I'm hearing a stampede about to trample me. When I look up a three-legged greyhound is offering to rub its wet nose with mine. They were lovely dogs and shyly affectionate. You could see why they're used for racing with those nervous twitching bodies pared down to papery skin and bone, though.

I was gonna say, the black one looks like my Dakota. She doesn't race anymore. You're lucky if you can get her to move at all.

I used to like them, but not so much anymore...they have that "not quite there" quality you observed
