Re: Youtube

Because this is weird and funny. And colorful. Mostly weird.

Friday Is "Take Your Dog to Work Day"

Friday is "Take Your Dog to Work Day". I'm thinking I'll bring Maxwell, one of the two that showed up a few weeks ago. He got neutered yesterday (Baxter is scheduled for next Tuesday), and I thought he might like a day in the air conditioning with people fussing over him. I'll try to take lots of pi...

Re: Good day,bad day...

Keep the batteries in your smoke detectors fresh. When the battery gets weak and the smoke detector in your bedroom commences to yelling intermittently to alert you of the low power situation at 4:30 a.m., it's just disturbing. :shock: Otis didn't appreciate it either. :cat: Cats don't like surprises.

Re: Good day,bad day...

Something melted? Yow. Electricity is useful, and also dangerous. I'm glad it's fixed. A few years ago when our heat pump bit the big schnitzel, our first clue was when it tripped the circuit breaker. The second clue was when we flipped the circuit breaker back on and sparks showered out of the brea...

Re: Good day,bad day...

good day for a change here .... just participated in my older daughter's medical school graduation ceremony. Was asked to be one of those placing her academic hood on stage (a real honor). So she gets to be the next Dr Zelazny in Arizona, as I wind down to retirement. Hurrah for both situations! I'...

Caturday at our house.

Eric Whitacre Virtual Choir 2.0: Sleep

Over 2,000 performances, 1,752 singers, most of whom will never meet, from all over the world. It's wonderful. Turn up your speakers, plug in your headphones.

Re: There may be a ninth planet after all!

How can they be sure it's a planet? Maybe it's a whompin' big space ship. Or the Death Star. *cue ominous music*

Re: Prayer Request

Well, this sucks. I'm sorry to harsh everybody's mellow, but I got a message from my friend today. Brace yourself for some bad news... I hate to drop a bombshell on you - but here it is: When my Dr. said I was ‘cancer free’ just a few weeks ago is no longer true. The Dr. was wrong. The biopsy I had ...

Re: Pet Postings

Bmat, that is such a great photo. Otis gets that surly look too, and he's anything but. I don't have any name suggestions, but how wonderful of you to adopt them both, so they still have each other too. We had female cats for years, and never knew how affectionate neutered males are until we ended u...

Re: Pet Postings

Well, no one called for the kitty, so she's home right here. I don't have an updated photo of her yet, but she went to see the vet today and got blood drawn for tests and shots. Hubby took her and said she was remarkably cooperative throughout. And it's been decided that her name is Kahlua. In other...
