Narita Siegel would like to share a problem that is affecting their being able to raise dogs. "http://www.avma.org/onlnews/javma/jun09/090615f.asp Maybe you can let others know about these potential laws trying to limit our freedoms. This trend is sweeping the nation.  If you have time read about what is happening to our rural way of life.  I'm not hard core but tail docking is part of a long standing tradition in the Aussie breed.  It is part of our breed standard.  As you can see it is wide spread around the country among various breeds. Thanks for listening. They are trying to eliminate people from docking tails and breeding altogether. " We thank you Narita.

I heard the first Whippoorwill this morning (4-13-12) about 4. Did not hear a response but it could have been at a distance and he left to find her. Last year I heard no reply and he quit calling or moved on earlier that seemed normal. There is another bird that makes the clicking radar type noises as they move around in the dark. I have only seen the Whippoorwill once during the daytime. Do you see and hear wildlife in your neighborhood as the seasons change? Let us know. Please share.

Our many thanks to Arlene Wright-Correll and her son Don Wright. She had many times praised the wonderful fruit from his company, Hale Groves in Florida. He graciously allowed us to sample the naval oranges and they are divine ! ! When Texas lost all of its crop back many years ago, they would not allow any to be imported, but that was just lifted. Randy's words were "tasty and sweet." The ones for sale in the stores were big and pretty but always sour and bitter. Even with Splenda or sugar, they were never sweet. They have made a new customer. Just ask and I'll send you their address.

When "Sugar Free" has loads of sugary calories: I would swear that Kool Whip's Sugar Free variety was made with Splenda. Looking closely now, it is fructose corn syrup. That's not good. As soon as Wanda mentioned it, I checked and we quit using it. You can use whipping cream and sweeten it with Splenda but you still have the sugars in the cream. Ah well.

Randy wanted to make fried chicken wings from a recipe he'd found in a Betty Crocker cookbook. When we first tried the recipe, we used the Five Spice Powder that it called for. But we didn't like that taste. We had it again this evening, Sunday, and I found a recipe for the Five Spice Blend. I was surprised at what goes into making it 5 spices but used the only one that we had on hand. Oh my, that was sure good.  CLICK HERE and look for A Recipe for Five Spice Powder.

There was another case of a  young woman dying at nearly the same time and no details were released at all. (Nita)

But it should be treated and we do have the medicine and doctors. Did you see that TV item where the crew went to the rural part of Mexico City where this originated?

NEVER, NEVER open any online postcard or greeting card even when it says it is from someone you know. It will bring you a virus that will take lots of money and work to remove. Never use one of the online offers to correct the problem. They are the ones who created the virus in the first place. Send a separate email to the person whose name you know and let them know that you cannot open the item. They probably know nothing about the danger. 123greetings . com has been around a long time but they can sure destroy your entire computer.
