Schotzy here. The human who thinks he's the boss here has gone to eat dinner. I've already had mine. I appeal to you all to tell him to feed me properly. I never get mice, nor birds, nor lizards, nor good things like that to eat. "Balanced diet", he calls it. He'd just better share their Christmas Lasagne with me. . Happier news now. I've got my own email address. It's I'm sure you know how to fix that so it can be read by the computer. Something about switching a couple of letters to an "@". . Now, please don't tell the big Cat, but I was visiting a certain website today and saw they had put in a link to an oldish Aussie Christmas song. So I thought, well, if she can do it so can I. Just one caveat: I don't think it is a song you'll want young children to see nor hear. . Here's something nice you can show people who say they don't like us cats: A cat named Oreo is being credited for nipping a carbon monoxide leak in the bud. Jeanie Probst said her cat began to act strangely since she began using a heater over the past couple of weeks. "He came out here yelling," Probst said. Oreo would run in circles under the vent or jump onto the back of a chair, stare at the register and make loud noises, she said. "It was one of those scary meows," Probst said. Once the heat would went off, Oreo would act normal again. Probst said she and her boyfriend began to realize they were getting headaches and feeling tired. They called MidAmerican Energy, which discovered the furnace was pumping carbon monoxide into their Cedar Rapids apartment, and a technician came out and fixed the poisonous leak. . I heard that people who live in Texas were treated to this headline: "State Report Says Texas Has Too Many Reports" -- AP headline . As long as there's already a newspaper headline here, look what the Aussies have found out: "Australia Finds a New Power Source -- Beer" -- London Times headline . Here's something I've been trying to figure out. Maybe you can help? The Brain Buster Card Trick ! . I need help: ¿¿¿¿ sɐǝpı ʎuɐ ǝuoʎuɐ'ǝɯ d1ǝɥ uɐɔ noʎ ǝqʎɐɯ' pǝuǝddɐɥ ʇɐɥʍ ʇno ǝɹnbıɟ ʇ,uɐɔ 11ıʇs ı puɐ ʎɐpoʇ ʎ1ɹɐǝ uɐbǝq sıɥʇ'ǝɯ ɹoɟ ǝuo ʍǝu ɐ sı sıɥʇ . One more thing.

A friend asked me why I considered the banana palm as being a very rude plant. What's your opinion?

Here's some unwanted news. Seems State Farm says we're only Number 2 in this category:
N.M. ranked high on list of holiday robberies According to a new State Farm study, New Mexico is the second worst state in the nation when it comes to the number of home burglaries during the holidays. Jeff Feid of State Farm said thieves are looking for specific items during the holidays. "They're gonna look for items that are easy to grab and take in their arms, not attached to the house, so electronics, jewelry, furs, things that are not attached to the house, they're gonna take 'em and dash real fast," he said. Officials with State Farm recommend that residents install security systems in their homes. They said that motion activated lights are also a good way to detour criminals. But officials said having good locks with deadbolts are the key to keeping thieves from gaining entry. The study names Nevada as the state with the most holiday burglaries and North Dakota with the fewest.
I'm not sure if that's better or worse than being 48th in average income. Oh, well, whatever.
A recent activity of sneak thieves here resulted in a multi amputee from Iraq having his electric wheel chair stolen. I kid you not. A collection was taken up by us locals and he was supplied with vlivk thea new unit.
I don't remember, when I was a kid, of anything this heinous and disgusting happening. I think my Dad and some of his buddies might have gone out hunting for anyone who would do such a heinous thing. I know for sure the cops would have made a super effort to find the ***'* ** *******(supply your own adjectives).
But this kind of thing is not just reserved to Albuquerque. There's a link under the header about the recent fires in San Diego County and part way down it reports on some slime bag thievery during the disaster.
It seems to me that American morality (and perhaps that of other countries, as well,) has sunk to a low point never dreamed of by our Founding Fathers.
