Senate Dem seeks federal funding for diapers

This is the most insane thing that I’ve ever heard of ….. the government now wants to buy diapers! If you can’t afford to buy diapers, don’t have babies!  Did these people ever hear of “cloth” diapers, tide and bleach? Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Tuesday introduced legislation that would allow federal block grants that […]

Coffee Heaven

  Several months ago I ask my Mother if she still had any old stovetop coffee percolators and she found one! An old Corningware pot …. Classic Blue Cornflower pattern. The reason I wanted one was because I had tossed all of mine years ago and when the electricity is off there is no way […]

U.S. Pet Owners Paying For High-Tech Veterinary Care

NEW YORK – Brute, a German shepherd, lay anesthetized on an operating table, his hairy chest under a plastic cover and his powerful paws taped immobile. "Here comes the wire up the artery!" said Dr. Chick Weisse, who infused the dog’s cancerous liver with chemotherapy via a catheter at the century-old Animal Medical Center in […]

Google is a “dog-friendly” company

Google is a super dog-friendly company. It proudly names “company dogs,” like Yoshka (described as a “free-range Leonberger”) pictured above. Yoshka accompanies Urs Holzle, senior VP operations and Google Fellow to the Googleplex. Less senior staff are also allowed to bring their dogs to the office. According to Google’s “Dog Policy”, one indiscretion too many […]

Art Linkletter (1912-2010)

LOS ANGELES – Art Linkletter, who as the gently mischievous host of TV’s "People Are Funny" and "House Party" in the 1950s and ’60s delighted viewers with his ability to get kids — and grownups — to say the darndest things on national television, died Wednesday. He was 97. Linkletter died at his home in […]

‘Hurt Locker’ takes 6 prizes at the British Film Awards

At least the British Academy Film Awards got it right!  “The Hurt Locker” was the best movie that I saw in 2009.  When it comes around to “oscar night”, the big hollywierdo get together of actors who think they are politicians, I’m sure they will not choose “The Hurt Locker”.  They will inevitably give the […]
