I’ve got way too many cats running around here! Lets see now, in the neutered male division we have a large red, (from whence he got his name, “Red”), and a rather large and imposing solid black, who goes by the name of “Rocky”. In the spayed female ranks we have “Wild Thing”, sometimes referred to as “Momma Cat”, and a big fluffy grey we call “Jada”.

The newest of the bunch is a small striped grey that looks a lot like “Wild Thing”, in coloring, yet to be spayed. They all eat way too much and to top it all off they are all save the kitten bigger than my one house dog, a small female purebred shizu. The dog is nuttier then a fruitcake and twice as dumb! But ya gotta love her, she’s just so darn cute!

Flip Skateboards, The History Of

One sport that I never really had the opportunity to get involved in and my age now prevents me from participating in it now a days, is skate boarding. We did do some skate boarding as a kid, but it was no where near as popular and specialized as it is these days. It has become a very “hot” source of entertainment and has prompted a large population to get on these new, bigger and better, skate boards that are being available for this sport. I just know that if I were to try something like that now, at my age, that I would end up in the hospital and no one would be able to take care of the farm and all that goes along with the running of all the things that are important to take care of on a daily basis.

Flip skateboards are a type of board that I had not heard of and was reading about at, where they explain that these flip skateboards came about originally in the 1980’s in the U.K, they were first referred to as “Deathbox Skateboards” and were later named Flip in 1991 and then moved to California in 1994.

Along with this article they had some good photo’s and tons of products regarding to all types of this skateboarding craze, no matter what type, style or brand. You can even customize the building of your own boards here, short or long, no matter, they have it all. A good site to check out.

Lap Band

Lap band seems to become a very popular way for people to reduce their weight, which is a good thing all the way around. I’ve just heard that a family member (a distant cousin) who lives out in California, just received this surgical procedure and couldn’t be happier or healthier. He has been struggling with weight issues from day one, that side of the family comes from “large stock” but he is the first one to have this done, so I’m sure the rest will be following in suit soon.

He had the procedure done by a company that he located online at Topsurgeons dot com, where he read lap band testimonials a plenty and called their toll free phone number of 1-800-GET-SLIM and talked at great length with their top surgeons before consenting to have this new and improved procedure done for himself, which has changed his life so drastically.

To watch their lap band before and after video, one only has to go to their website, it has a lot to offer people that are contemplating this type of procedure. You may also receive a free lap band finance evaluation and see all the other procedures that they are offering in their many California locations.

Scrubs For Today’s Fashion Conscience Medical Professionals

Surfing the net I ended up at a site that offers a wide variety of surgical scrubs for sale. We all have been seeing a lot more folks wearing some unique scrubs that have come on the market these past few years. The days of our medical personnel only wearing  those awful white medical lab coats are long over with. Today’s fashion conscience medical professionals are now sporting some pretty cool uniforms that helps them express themselves more and more.

Check out the different men’s scrub hats that are out there……

And this colorful women’s scrub hat that is made for folks with long hair that is put into a pony tail….

Mending Fences

Today I spent all day mending fences – literally.  Last night a drunk driver ran off the road and through a large section of my fence.  Thankfully the police notified me that the fence was broken before I let the cattle out into that pasture.  I would have been really upset to have to try to herd the wayward cattle back after they had escaped!

So today I had to spend most of the day mending fences.  The worst part about it was the memories it brought back about how my parents were killed by a drunk driver.  I think that all cars should be equipped with a breathalyzer box and the car refuses to start if the driver has had too much to drink!
