The Cat's Meow

UH DONALD...I DON'T LIKE THE WAY SHE'S LOOKING AT US.
TELL ME AGAIN HOW YOU KNOW SHE'S A VEGETARIAN.

A cute clip on the universal language of it's delicious
The Cat Says Om-Nom-Nom

I came across a TODAY show excerpt on HEALTHY FROZEN FOODS that sounded interesting. I need new recipes for veggie focused meals and these sound great for convenience or to make from scratch. www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/400

    I don't need to worry about it anymore, but I used to always take frozen entrees to work with me for simplicity's sake, then add a piece of fresh fruit. Other than being high in sodium, you can find some pretty good options like Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine, and Healthy Choice. But of course -- homemade is always so much better!

It's Super Cat

Saturday, November 06, 2010



HEY....HE'S A CAT
YOU DON'T THINK HE PARTIES WHILE YOU'RE AWAY ?
CHECK OUT THE LITTLE GUY WITH THE LAMPSHADE HAT.
UH OH....BUSTED ! ! !

I'm still amazed when someone tells me they don't think animals have intelligence or personality. Having owned a dog, a cat, a parrot, and a capuchin monkey...I know they each teach us how to be more human.

So here is something to make you smile...tell me this doesn't remind you of a kid playing with a parent.

I'm getting better and better with my soups and stews. I keep making vegetable based dishes flavored with a little chicken or meat, and plenty of beans. delicious. The added value is that they really satisfy me and keep my craving way down.

    My former cat threw lots of parties when I wasn't home. Like the one where he dragged the frozen chicken off the counter and he and the dog ate the entire thing. For some odd reason no one greeted us when we got home and didn't make eye contact and guts were very bloated.

Do Dogs go to Heaven?

Friday, November 05, 2010

two churches face each other across a busy street...


ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN


ONLY HUMANS GO TO HEAVEN...READ THE BIBLE


GOD LOVES ALL HIS CREATIONS...DOGS INCLUDED


DOGS DON'T HAVE SOULS...THIS IS NOT OPEN FOR DEBATE


CATHOLIC DOGS GO TO HEAVEN...
PRESBYTERIAN DOGS CAN TALK TO THEIR PASTOR


CONVERTING TO CATHOLOCISM DOES NOT MAGICALLY GRANT YOUR DOG A SOUL


FREE DOGS SOULS WITH CONVERSION


DOGS ARE ANIMALS...THERE AREN'T ANY ROCKS IN HEAVEN EITHER


ALL ROCKS GO TO HEAVEN
______________
I would love to meet the priest at Our Lady of Martyrs.
He's my kind of people. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Love his sense of humor
_______________
UPDATE: Someone went thru the trouble of sending me a notice from snopes that this story never actually happened . The church billboards can be done with a photoshop type utility available on the web. But knowing how people can be...it is entirely possible for me to believe it could happen.

One of the ones in the post is design number eleven at the next link:

    WoW! I'm surprised at the snippy replies on the Presbyterian sign. I was raised a Methodist and I always thought Presbyterians were pretty similar. I just can't imagine posting such things in public - I bet a LOT of Presbyterians know their beloved pets have souls. And I doubt many of them would compare an animal to a rock.

This gave me a laugh, but sure made me wonder about some folks as well. emoticon

the Zapper

Thursday, November 04, 2010

Years ago, I worked for people who were brazen enough to brag about reading the New York Times while driving over 65 mph. Then when cell phones became popular, these same people would get on the phone the minute they got into the car. Today I came across this item that comes complete with a video documenting the guy, with an open book, reading a kindle, and answering a cell phone. I just shook my head.
technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2010/1
1/04/5408070-man-reads-book-kindle-ans
wers-phone-while-driving


Then I came across this article
WANT TO BE A MATH WHIZ? TRY A TOUCH OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
bodyodd.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2010/11/
04/5404646-want-to-be-a-math-whiz-try-
a-touch-of-electric-shock


And the thought occurred to me…people are totally disregarding the rules. Maybe we should use a little reminder…like a little shock therapy under the seat. Something to make them pay better attention.

BOY COULD I USE THIS IDEA



HONEY….SWEETIE….ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?
!!! ZAP !!!

Going to the Dogs

Wednesday, November 03, 2010



Uh.......DO YOU REALIZE WHERE THAT TONGUE HAS BEEN? emoticon

Made my version of vegetable soup with every aromatic veggie I could find in the house and threw in some cabbage and tomatoes. Read an article that said the folks who advised people to take a daily multivitamin ....now say it doesn't work and could even hurt.
'TIME TO KICK THE MULTIVITAMIN HABIT, STUDIES SUGGEST'
www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39616169/ns/hea
lth-diet_and_nutrition/


I really hope we aren't paying for these 'studies' out of tax payers money.

Last month they changed the street signs somewhere because a 'study' decided that using 'UPPER CASE' for the names of the streets didn't show up as clearly as 'Title Case' (only using capital letters for the first letters of the names).
Who paid for that study.... Pearl Vision centers?

Sorry .... but I'm grumpy today. emoticon
