    Question of the Day - Monday, October 26, 2020

    We stopped doing Halloween a couple years ago, but when we did do it, the most popular item we gave out were the mini bags of Smartfood popcorn. Second was the mini bags of Goldfish. We didn't give out candy.

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    I got nailed by yellow jackets when I ran over their nest while mowing the lawn at my in-law's while they were on vacation. Yeah, it hurts like the very devil.

    The Positive Thread 2020

    My positive is that one of our nieces was over, and her, Michele, and Michele's sister went for a 'girl's day'. When they got back, I asked her about her father, who has been undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, from Agent Orange. She said that while some of his blood values are...

    Gardening 2020

    Of course it does! The only difference among us is a matter of scale. Some have expansive gardens, while with others, it's not so much- and I happen to fall into the not-so-much category. We just do what we can with what we have to work with. If you have them, please send pictures.

    Question of The Day. Saturday 24th of October.

    When the mask edict came down from our governor, and the run started, I already had some N95 masks on hand, as well as a box of regular dust masks. Since I only wear one when required, they have lasted so far, but when they are gone, we have a bunch of the blue disposables as well.

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    Although we had two chicken houses, with nest boxes for each chicken, there were no cages. They were what today are called 'free range' so they had every opportunity to get you; sometimes ganging up to attack.

    Question of the Day, Friday, October 23

    As a kid, living on a farm, we had a large kitchen with a big round oak pedestal table that accommodated all 9 of us, so that's where we ate as we didn't have a dining room. Now, although our house does have one, we seldom use it, opting instead for the living room or kitchen.

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    When I was a kid, we had several dozen White Leghorn chickens, and it fell to me to gather the eggs each day so they could go to market. My hands and arms would be covered with marks where I got nailed by their beaks as I made my rounds of the nests. I grew to hate chickens, and looked forward...

    Thank you. I think that all of ours are beautiful, each in their own way.

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    I knew that it was a while ago, but when I looked it up, it was an Associated Press story from 1986

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    Some time back, I read an article that told about using geese as 'sentries' at NATO facilities instead of dogs. They would patrol the area between the inner and outer perimeter fences, and were more reliable because they couldn't be given drugged food to incapacitate them, and they made a...
