My sister called me today to tell me it was 111 degrees in Long Beach California. 111! Oh, right. It’s Indian summer right now – it happens every year – and the temperatures hover in obscene ranges as the dry Santa Ana winds punish region. Often these dry winds are accompanied by California fires (in fact, I just stumbled across a website that lists all fires in California. http://cdfdata.fire.ca.gov/incidents/incidents_current )- there were 12 major fires just this month!

Used to Fit!

Most females can identify with this:

You find something ‘festive’ you’d like to slip into

It seems a little small, but you’re QUITE SURE that in recent years,
you’ve worn this size.

So, you work with it…

Please excuse the funny headline. It’s been raining here and I’ve been dealing with wet everything – including wet cats – so waterproofing is probably something I’ve had attention on more than I should….however…there is a good point to the headline.

During my life I’ve had several animals that had a great fear of water, dogs and horses and cats – (cats – yes – normal to dislike water). I discovered the horses’ fear while galloping along a trail that had a teensy tiny ribbon of water c

Thank You.

I am looking for a veterinarian who can give shots and exams to dogs, cats, and rabbits. Also, the vet I am looking for needs to know about rabbits and rabbit health.

This is very important as I am unable to find a vet for my rabbit. House calls would be best but I would also like to know of a vet who is knowledgable of rabbit health as the only vet around Jacksonville is very far away and it is stressful to my rabbit to ride in the car. The stress is too much for him which is one reason I

I’d hardly ever heard about them when I lived in California. Now I’m in Florida and in Florida, they’re a way of life. Stories like this one of a sink hole opening up and swallowing a car is not that unusual.

But even I had to read this headline twice “Firefighters rescue CAMEL from Oregon sinkhole”

It seems that a family’s pet camel, Moses, accidentally fell into a local sinkhole and got stuck and it took firefighters over 4 hours to rescue him.

The camel, st
