Christmas in July

Ho, Ho, Ho. I looked under my Christmas tree and what did I find?

Actually it was in my orders@longearsmall email box. But it is still just as exciting! It is like a never ending supply of treats.

Delanie Baughn in Tennessee sent me a picture from Shelbyville's Great Celebration 2004. She wrote:

"Here is a picture from The Great Celebration 2004 in Shelbyville. The picture is of My World Digger, Joe Haworth of Half Ass Acres (previous owner), and me (Digger's new owner). Digger placed 6th in the NMDA Over 2 Geldings Halter class. Joe had to show Digger because it was Digger's first show and he had the jitters, LOL! It was my first time to show, too, so we all decided that I needed a more "experienced" donkey to show. Digger is a tank of a boy, barely under 36 inches. But he is perfect to me!!"


Thank you, Delanie, for the beautiful picture. He sure is good looking!

By the way, you have got to visit Joe & Dayle Haworth's Half Ass Acres website. I love their artwork! While you are there be sure to check out the realtime foaling webcam. I had so much fun just watching it. Thanks, Joe!

Watching Joe's live webcam is so much more fun than software programming, but I do have some good news to report about the work I have been doing on fixing the problem with the search function for the Stores, Store Listings and Classifieds section of the Longears Mall. It should now work like the industry-standard Google-style search.

For example, if you want to search for "mule" and "trailer" you should be able to type any of the following:



To search for "mule" or "trailer" type this:



A "quoted" search for an exact phrase like this still does not work:


It will take some more study for me to get that working. I should have it soon.

For now, I've got to have one more look at Joe's webcam!
