Kitty in the City
It's been two months since Pearl came to live with us, and already it's like she's always been here. She snuggles with me while we watch tv, she plays with the kiddo, she irritates the dog just enough to make me happy and not enough to tick the dog off, and she hasn't caused a flare up of C's allergies. YAY!
Everyone tells us we have an incredibly affectionate, wonderful cat, and I cannot thank our Animal Humane Society enough for introducing us to Pearl.
I spent a long time searching their website, waiting for the right animal friend to come along for us. I still find myself searching their pages. I feel sad to see how many unwanted pit bull puppies there are, and how many adult cats seem to stay at the shelter for months before they get adopted (we thought about an adult cat, but the humane society recommended against it, since we wanted the cat to be friends with our dog and son).
This cat, for example, has been there since December. Isn't she cute? If an adult cat had been right for us, she would have probably come home with us. But, the decision to get a kitten was definitely the right one for our family. I hope this cute little gal finds a home soon, and her picture's off the website.
Look at this guy. I wonder what he's thinking? He was surrendered because the owner had too many pets to care for. That must be one of the choices on the surrender form, and it's one that gets checked a lot. I think there are a lot of sad reasons why animal friends end up at the humane society: too expensive to care for, displaced by divorce, too energetic (that, on a surrender form for a Yorkshire terrier...I could understand it on a golden retriever, but c'mon. A Yorkie?).
Animals are our friends, and they do a lot of good things to help us be better people. I feel sad when I think about how many animals find their way to the shelter.I think the people at the shelter where we got Pearl did a great job of taking care of her before we brought her home, but it's still no vacation.
I think about Pearl and what she must have been thinking when she was placed in the overnight drop box. It must have been so scary! I'm glad she feels safe and secure now.

I hear you there. The folks at the Humane Society in Oregon where Miles found us were caring and kind. Can't say quite as much for his first 2 (!) families. How anyone could have decided that Miles is too boring is beyond me. I'm just left thinking that they didn't really want a cat and ended up with him somehow. (I mean, come on, what cat doesn't spend most the day curled up on the bed?)
We feel very lucky to have him. I'm glad that Pearl found you guys. She's lucky to finally be home!

What a lucky kitty! I have been catsitting my sister and husband's cat for several months now while they have been moving from Indiana to Minnesota...looking for a new house, living with the in-laws at the moment. Zoey the Cat needed a place to stay during this time. I'm surprised how much I have enjoyed having a cat around. She likes to snuggle with me too while I watch T.V. and takes great interest in my knitting!

I am creating a hollow form using corkclay as the core. I intended to cover the entire corkclay with pmc3 but I just go through somewhere that I need to leave a hole for that corkclay to vent out whilst burning I really did not want to really need to fill or repair after the 1st firing.

There may possibly be a song reference for this truck. Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne" is actually a tribute (if that is the right phrase) to Owsley Stanley. There's a reference from the lyric to his "technicolor motor home", which might be relating to this truck. Maybe someone should really inquire Steely Dan's Donald Fagen or Walter Becker if which is accurate. This is a genuinely very good song far too, BTW.

Hello JanJamm and Sam,
Posted by: Hiroko Waloven at January 4, 2013 7:38 PM
We all would love the idea of making money online. All we need is the right guidance to give us all the opportunity in making money online, it is a billions upon billions of dollars industry that just needs to be tapped into.
If you can get a fraction of a percent of todayâ€™s Internet industry you would be a millionaire and that is no joke (does that make it sound easy in making money online?).
The problem that we have today is that there is too much B.S. methods out there that hides the truth from individuals so that they can get richer by purchasing their products that never seem to work. Unfortunately this is the reality that some cannot avoid because they donâ€™t have the right guidance.
We go to school to get educated and we get taught what we know today (for a pretty penny of course).
Now look at the aspects in starting your own business on the Internet. There are many ways in making money online but we are not educated in finding the ways for making money online in turn fueling scam artists to lure you into this dreaded pool of bankruptcy in your attempts for picking that money off the tree.
Iâ€™M was ONE of those people. Now itâ€™s your turn. Iâ€™m not here to sell you products but I will admit that is costs money to make money. All my sources that I provide links to I advertise for a reason. This reason is to help you, help you get started, help you understand, help you realise the truth, HELP YOU MAKE MONEY.
This is the reason why I created this website, to help people that were like me. Use me as a guidance tool to give you sound advice that you can take to the BANK and write your own paycheck.
If you want the truth then allow me to give it to you. Let me clear the mist and haze covering your eyes from the truth.
Let me get you started now by referring you to a site that enabled me to start websites with confidence. The site is called â€œBring The Freshâ€œ. It is a very affordable course that will guarantee to give you the best opportunities to start your own website. Click Here to find out more, you wonâ€™t be sorry.

That's right. Linguists quarrel endlessly about terminology; Geoff and I both agree on everything about how the Perfect construction works, but I prefer to call it a construction, while he prefers to call it a tense, and he has his reasons. OK, we're both licensed, and we both understand what the other means. Close enough.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

I really don't know how to answer this because I hated art in school! I think it was the teacher and the projects she made us do. Also, art is useless if you can't use your hands. You have to tell someone what you want done. If you have a computer, which we didn't, I think art can be made more enjoyable for people with disabilities.

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
