yes, I made it stitch by stitch by stitch mostly during the wee, dark hours of IKE
after I got the Yorkie done I was not sure what to do with it b/c it is small
so I made a magnet out of it
I started to sew IKE under him instead of Yorkshire Terrier
I am sorry you were having a bad day and glad I was able to cheer
I am praying about the thing you are worried about
and of course, I am worried for you
you have cheered me up on many an occassion

An upside to the recession!  While I wouldn't classify this as cutting edge science, I thought Twirl would enjoy this one.

There's a video clip at the website: http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/090219-recession-sharks.html
(not sure why they posted a whale shark rather than a real man-eater!!!!!)

Economic Recession Means Fewer Shark Attacks 
By LiveScience Staff   
posted: 19 February 2009 04:36 pm ET
Shark attacks are on the decline due to the current economic downturn, a biologist speculated today.

In 2008, attacks worldwide dipped to their lowest level in five years, a sign that Americans may be forgoing vacation trips to the beach, said ichthyologist George Burgess of the University of Florida.

Burgess is the director of the International Shark Attack File, a compilation of all known shark attacks that is administered by the American Elasmobranch Society and the Florida Museum of Natural History, on the UF campus.

The total number of shark attacks declined from 71 in 2007 to 59 in 2008, the fewest since 2003, when there were 57, said Burgess, who works at the museum.

"I can’t help but think that contributing to that reduction may have been the reticence of some people to take holidays and go to the beach for economic reasons," Burgess said. "We noticed similar declines during the recession that followed the events of 2001, despite the fact that human populations continued to rise."

Shark attacks basically correlate with the number of people in the water. The more people go to the beach, the more they are in the shark's home, the offshore waters, and the more attacks on humans.

In recent years, vacationing tourists have been attacked off beaches in remote parts of the globe, such as Cocos Island in the Indian Ocean, where none were reported in the past, he said.

There were four fatal attacks last year — an average number — compared with only one in 2007, which marked a two-decade low. Two of the deaths were in Mexico, one was in Australia and one was in the United States.

The number of shark attacks in the United States, which typically makes up about two-thirds of the total worldwide, dropped from 50 in 2007 to 41 in 2008, Burgess said. Thirty-two of those attacks were in Florida — the same number as the previous year — followed by North Carolina and South Carolina, with three each; Hawaii had two; and California, one.

Florida, with its warm waters, has more sharks, including black tip sharks and spinner sharks, species not found in lower temperatures, Burgess said.

"A lot less attacks occur off Long Island, New York, than Florida simply because there are fewer sharks up there," he said.

Within Florida, Volusia County continued its dubious distinction as the world’s shark bite capital with 22 incidents, its highest yearly total since 2001, Burgess said.

As in past years, surfers accounted for most of the world’s attacks — 57 percent — followed by swimmers and waders, 36 percent; and divers, 8 percent, he said. These numbers are rounded up, which is why they total more than 100 percent.

"Surfers are the heavy favorites largely because the splashing of arms and particularly the kicking of feet at the water's surface where visibility is poor is provocative to sharks," Burgess said. "They result in what we think are cases of mistaken identity, where the shark interprets the irregular splashing to be activities of its normal prey."

Swimmers and waders are the group most likely to be affected by economic hardship, Burgess said. "These are sort of the average folks that go to the water for recreation, lie on the beach, work on their suntan and take their kids in the surf for a swim," he said. "I would expect their numbers to decline in 2009."

Over the long term, though, Burgess expects shark attacks to rise because of a gradual upswing from one decade to the next. "We’ve already surpassed the numbers of attacks in the previous 10-year period," he said, "so we know this decade will be higher than the last."

Man on 2nd saltwater fishing trip bags huge shark

Mon Mar 2, 9:09 pm ET

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. – A Texas man on just his second saltwater fishing trip caught an 11-foot, 8-inch shortfin mako shark that weighed 1,149.5 pounds on scales at Port Fourchon, La. Bill Walters, a 56-year-old dog trainer from Granbury, Texas, caught the shark last week aboard the Orange Beach, Ala.-based Sea Spray while trolling near the mouth of the Mississippi River.

It took more than six hours to haul in the catch with the help of nine friends and skipper Bill Staff.

It is one of the heaviest shortfin mako sharks ever caught. The International Game Fish Association shortfin mako world record is 1,221 pounds.
