    Question of the Day, Wednesday, February 26, 2020

    Yards...like 'em, hate 'em, itch to make gardens, could not care less? I've never had a place where I could actually garden. That may be just as well, as I can kill a plastic philodendron in a week, flat. HOWEVER...I do have dreams, oh, yes I do. Not of pristine yards. Those hold no charms...

    Almost Valentine's Day! Is this something you celebrate, or do you give it a pass? Any special plans? LOL, well, Hekitty is my valentine! I did buy her a new jingle ball, with bright red feathers attached. The lovely thing about having a cat as your valentine is that gifts can be so simple...

    Question of the Day, Wednesday, February 5, 2020

    Are you superstitious? A little "stitious?" Not "stitious" at all? I'm amazingly superstitious about some odd-ball things, but not about the more common superstitions. Most of those I learned from my Gran, actually. She wasn't the least concerned about black cats, or the number #13 (other...

    Safe Travels, Little Skittles...

    One of my little ferals is gone. I hadn't seen her in a few days, but that's nothing unusual. They're in and out all the time. Late this afternoon, I spotted her behind the shrubs in front of my apartment, already moribund. By then, her breath rate was only 6 per minutes, and she was in and...

    Simple this week, or may not... What is the theme song of your life? Who can tell me if we have heaven, Who can say the way it should be; Moonlight holly, the Sappho Comet, Angel's tears below a tree. You talk of the break of morning As you view the new aurora, Cloud in crimson, the key of...

    The fact of the matter is, when you start getting older, looking back, and occasionally realizing that you might have done something entirely different... Do you have a dream job? One that you wish you had done, or one that you want to do? LOL, I don't care how far out it might seem, this is...

    SO...I was talking with a friend earlier, and recounted an incident that led to today's question... What is the dumbest way you have ever been injured? I have to give you two answers, because I can't decide which one is the dumbest. #1 I was getting in the car, on the driver's side, and...

    The Hardest Decision...Help Dealing with the Aftermath

    Deciding to have our cats euthanized is without a doubt one of the hardest, more heartbreaking things we ever have to do. And in the aftermath, we always question ourselves. Every one of us, no matter how sick our cat might have been, are left with a nasty case of the "what ifs." This article...

    Last night I just didn't feel like cooking anything at all. So I opted for a bowl of cereal. I sat contemplating my supper, and this drifted through my mind... Is cereal a soup? Why or why not? And darned if I know...It actually might be!!! This is the dictionary's definition of soup: a...

    I'm having trouble coming up with a question! Today has been frantic, so I'm going to go with something easy. It's Christmas Day for many of us, the day after for some. Did you/will you cook a big meal, or is something simpler on the menu? Mom and I went on strike many years ago on Christmas...

    POST CRUELTY-FREE PRODUCTS HERE!

    So many of us are staunch animal advocates that I thought it would be a good thing to have a place to put household and personal products that DO NOT test on animals! Cover Girl Make-Up has won the "Leaping Bunny" award, which means that THEY do not animal test, nor do they buy from suppliers...

    Question of the Day, Wednesday, November 27, 2019

    Lord, what a day, and another one coming tomorrow! This question is pretty much a phone-in, but I'm just not capable of clever questions at this point. SO, what are you up to today? I'm thinking that a lot of our US members are either neck-deep in prep work, or hauling bags to cars to head...

    Easy one this week. For those of you in the USA, will you be celebrating Thanksgiving, and how? For those of you in other parts of the world, is there a holiday roughly analagous to Thanksgiving? What is it, and how do you celebrate? I'm cooking for myself, Hekitty, and a gang of ferals...

    What are your reading/TV watching patterns? Do you tend to skip around, or are you a binge-er? Well, before I dumped my cable, I watched shows as the came out, although I might record and watch the next day. Now that I subscribe to streaming services, I've become a serious binger, both with...

    An easy one tonight... For those of us in places where Halloween is celebrated (can y'all tell this is my favorite holiday?), is there a particular candy or other treat associated with Halloween that you just love, and wait for every year? OH YES! I am utterly addicted to those peanut butter...
