hi buddy
wow we had some more nasty storms at home last night and it got one of our outlets that has a breaker and all the outlets on one side of the kitchen dont work and momma had to pull the fridge out and run a heavy drop cord to it.

momma also said she saw on the news this morning that a lady in oklahoma foune her two precious kitties after searching the debris for hours. one has a broken leg and the other is just fine. sure did put a big smile on momma's face
momma ordered and inspiron 15.6" with touch screen from dell. sure hope she likes it and it gets here soon so we can get to our hockey games again before playoffs are over.
purrs and love

2/26/13 Final Tuesday as King Barney! +15
By Friday Morning you will have a new Queen JosieMae#193862 and we will be sleeping in, so we can come come back and begin blogging on our own schedules, as our ordinary selves. We want everyone to know it has been decided to have the official Coronation on Thursday 2/28/13 at 7:30pmEST, 6:30Central, 4:30Pacific. We also want to let you know that since we have received so many positive comments on our rescue blogs, we would like to continue bringing you stories, though on a less regular schedule, say twice a month or more, if mom is up to it. We will continue to leave them on the Inspiration page, so you may also consider that a reading room for our stories. We are still looking for the battery charger to get the camera up and running and will add pictures from our stories on the Inspiration page too.

Well, we did promise to finish Rosebud's story and mostly just to tell what a special kitty she was and how she ruled the house in her day. Once she came to mom the second time, there was no doubt she was going to stay. Mom's friend knew how much mom loved Rosebud and said Rosebud was too old to make more changes. She did tell her too, how feisty a cat Rosebud was in her youth. She got along with Midnight in the house, but if she happened to get outside, she had no qualms about chasing the largest of dogs out of her yard! Once she settled in with mom, she had a few other tricks up her sleeve, so to speak. Not that she wore sleeves. This was still during the time of Pasha the Great and, as you might remember, he had to be kept away from other cats, because he simply didn't accept them. Well, one afternoon mom returned from work to find Rosebud in her room, curled up by the heat register, with Pasha and Agatha! She was grooming Pasha and simply gave mom a look to say, "I'm in control now." Mom almost fainted, but it wasn't a one time occurrence. From that time on, Rosebud was part of a trio.

Rosebud did have her weaknesses when it came to health and some of them serious, like her allergies to fish and antibiotics. Before mom figured out the fish allergy, it meant several runs to the vet and it is not easy to find catfood without fish in it! Rosebud's face and ears would turn bright red when she ate anything with fish and she would vomit, with symptoms becoming progressively worse as time went on. Mom knew about human's with fish allergies and she searched for catfood without fish, finally discovering Wellness Chicken and Turkey flavors, with no added fish oils. The problem with many foods are that while the label says chicken, fish oil is added as a supplement. That is great for most cats, but can be deadly for one with allergies. She also was sensitive to many commonly used antibiotics, which made things difficult in times of illness. Luckily, she was a very healthy cat, for the most part.

So that was Angel Rosebud's story for the most part. She is a very special kitty in mom's heart and lived well into her teens.

It's a wonderful life
Philip Van Doren Stern (1900-1984) began a short story, The Greatest Gift", in 1939. He was inspired by a dream, and reminiscent of the 1843 Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. Stern shared 200 printed copies in 1943 friends as a year-end cards after numerous publisher rejections.
Luckily, the pamphlet came to the attention of a RKO movie producer who purchased the rights. Frank Capra's production company saw the movie potential. He paid $10,000 for the rights in 1945. Stern's story was adapted into the most loved and memorable American family film, "It's a Wonderful Life" in 1946. Director Capra's inventiveness, humor and affection for human beings keep it glowing with life and excitement.
On Xmas eve, George Bailey's guardian angel shows him all the lives he touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. Although George repeatedly sacrifices his dream to travel the world, he realizes "No man is a failure who has friends."
My dear friends at CatChannel, each one of you is precious, charming and kind. We make every attempt to make all members feel welcomed. You have the generous spirit of George Bailey in your hearts. You make our community a wonderful place. Thank you for being our friends.

The gift of every day
"Sun Dials and Roses of Yesterday: Garden Delights"
by Alice Morse Earle
The clock is running.
Make the most of today.
"Time Waits for No Man"
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the Present."
-----------------------------
Emily Dickinson's poem #1292
Yesterday is History,
'tis so far away --
yesterday is Poetry,
'tis Philosophy --

Yesterday is Mystery --
Where it is today --
While we shrewdly speculate
Flutter both away

The Nutcracker Ballet
On December 17, 1892, The Nutcracker ballet premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia. Critics and audience thought it a failure; it was not an instant success.
The adaptation by Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffman (1776-1822).
The score was composed by Peter Tchaikovsky, commissioned by mastermind choreographer Marius Petipa. Tchaikovsky died less than a year later.
The ballet was first performed in the United States in 1944. The Nutcracker has become a classic — many people consider it the most popular ballet in the world.
.......................*****.....................
Mom simply loved seeing her niece's ballet performances for all those special ten Decembers, meow-arvelous and magical memories to remember. Our adorable Sarah played different characters, beginning as a mouse, followed by a flower, a plum fairy and other dancers with enormous grace. How fast time goes, like a blink of an eye.

Universal language: math
Cat Math by Ruth Berman

Addition:
How many strokes
Of cheek against chair
Does it take to prove
Territorial rights?

Geometry:
is any amount of bare space
Shining at the bottom of the food bowl
Acceptable?

And how do you prove the negative
To humans?

Calculus:
Jump too close
And the parabola will be still ascending
Feet below the surface
Where their tangent
Should be level
Landing without lift or fall.

Jump too far
And the parabola will be descending
Feet below the surface.

Feet shouldn't scrabble for purchase.
Cat math depends on dignity.
The derivative should be zero
Eyed before the leap
Into quadratics

Nobility in our midst
Everybody Wants to be a Cat from The Aristocats

Everybody wants to be a cat,
because a cat's the only cat
who knows where it's at.

Everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat,
'cause everything else is obsolete.
Now a square with a horn,
can make you wish you weren't born,
ever'time he plays;
and with a square in the act,
he can set music back
to the caveman days.

I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing,
but a cat's the only cat
who knows how to swing.
Who wants to dig
a long-haired gig
or stuff like that?

When everybody wants to be a cat.
A square with that horn,
makes you wish you weren't born,
ever'time he plays;
and with a square in the act,
he's gonna set this music back
to the Stone Age days.

Everybody wants to be a cat,
because a cat's the only cat
who knows where it's at;
while playin' jazz you always has a Welcome mat,
'cause everybody digs a swingin' cat.
Everybody digs a swingin' cat.

...about how cool a cat can be
Meow Words By Cheryl Wheeler

Straightenin' out your back legs, stretching in my arms
Yawning, blinking, curling back around
Your dismissive glances slap me back somehow
Meow, meow, meow

Sleepin' on the big bed, the sultan slips the scene
Chasing something running in your dream
I am so enchanted, with your twitch and growl
Meow, meow, meow
I see you in Memphis on the Nile in the spring
Swinging through some palace doing your Egyptian king thing
You perceive my function, 24 a day
Is to do, for you, anything you say
Where'd you get that notion? How come I kowtow?
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Yeah buddy, meow, meow, meow

See the video and sing along to these lyrics
The lead video of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is riveting. The song, released in 1970, remains current.

"Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin
Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying:
Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

First week of November already over tomorrow
"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring." - Elizabeth Coatsworth

Glad to Hear It
Momma been out for a long time and she took me with her. But to let you know Momma and us have been really scared about Staten Island and you guys there. I was in the kitchen with Momma and she was watching NBC Nightly News. Momma started crying. She has a soft spot for that area of the country and the kitties and people who live there. We just wanted to let you know we are thinking and praying for you, your fur family, and your Mom and Dad.
Love,
Maia, Smacky, Webster, Moses, Jake, Dahlia, Angie, Kylie, and Emma.

Come visit me, Maia♥Rocky & Prays for Lost & Sick Kitties, Smacky Katt♥Gretchen & Angel Leo 8/1/01 to 8/5/10 Forever Loved.

The art of gratitude with CAT-titude
WHO can I thank today?***HOW will I show my appreciation? (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
"For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile." - Elie Wiesel (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
The math behind the "thank you":
Acts of gratitude are highly contagious. On a day you deliver one powerful thank you...
Your gratitude spreads to 6 people you know. (+6)
Then it spreads to 6 people they each know. (+36)
Then it spreads to 6 people they each know. (+216)
6 + 36 + 216 = 258 people who feel more grateful... just from YOUR one thank you! (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity." - Melody Beattie (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)

We have docked in London ...
... one of the world’s most visited cities; a city which has everything from history to culture, art, grand museums, dazzling architecture, royalty, diversity and irrepressible pizazz.

London is immersed in history, with sufficient antiquity and historic splendour (Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Hampton Court) to blow you away. London’s buildings are eye-catching milestones in the city’s unique and compelling biography. Architectural grandeur rises up all around you in the West End, ancient remains dot the City and charming pubs punctuate the Thames riverside. Take your pick.

Museums – such as the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum – have collections as diverse as they are magnificent, while flavours at markets such as Borough and Exmouth range aromatically across the culinary spectrum.

The Olympic Games will be held in London this summer, and we plan a return to this endlessly interesting city at that time to bring you first-hand reports.

Central London is where you will find all the major museums, galleries and most iconic sights, but escape to Hampstead Heath or Greenwich Park to flee the crowds and put the city’s greener hues into gorgeous perspective. Even in the centre of town, you’ll find a city dappled with a well-tended array of parks and gardens, making it one of the world’s leafiest capital cities.

The Tower of London was constructed beginning in 1070 by William the Conqueror. Over time the complex was expanded into a stronghold with about 20 towers. It is best known for its Crown Jewels. See a picture of the Queen’s crown at the bottom of my page.

The Imperial Crown of State also contains pearls worn as earrings by Elizabeth I, these are suspended from the arches of the crown. Within the wide jewel encrusted band that forms the base of the Crown of State is mounted an enormous diamond, named the Second Star of Africa. This was cut from the famous Cullinan Diamond, the largest diamond ever mined, it was given to Edward VII, who had it set in the crown. This priceless crown contains in all 2,783 diamonds, 17 sapphires , 277 pearls, 11, emeralds and 5 rubies.

Tomorrow will be Easter Sunday at the Church of England with Her Majesty and family. Then back to the castle for lunch and a tour.

We have reached day 26 of my campaign ...
Today I am posting this myself, BUT Mom’s computer will not be available to her until late on Thursday. Dear furriend Sassy and her mom have agreed to post my blog on the CMR page #46883 on Mon – Wed. On Thursday, I am being crowned in absentia, but will arrive later that day to visit and celebrate with you. Hang in there … I’ll be back.

Check each day at the bottom of my page for pics, even during my reign. This adventure is not ending; it’s only just begun. You’ll see.

Probably the most recognizable of the primates is the

Chimpanzee

Probably the most intelligent animal, next to man, the chimpanzee manifests many parallels to human behavior. Although its senses are similar to ours, it probably has a keener sense of smell. Other than man, the chimpanzee is one of the only animals that make and use tools. For example, it peels the bark from sticks and then uses those bare sticks to probe tree holds for insects. A chimpanzee uses far more facial and body gestures and a wider range of sounds than any animal other than man.

Usually in a slouch, rarely holding itself upright, a chimpanzee walks on its knuckles while moving about mainly on the ground, although it also climbs. A chimpanzee spends many hours of each day foraging for food, mainly ripe fruit and young leaves. It may eat as many as two dozen different types of plants in a single day.

A newborn chimpanzee is totally dependent on its mother. When a few days old it clings to the front of its mother’s body, by six months it rides on her back and by four years is walking alongside. It will then remain close to its mother for up to eight years. Chimpanzees live in communities ranging in size from about a dozen to over one hundred.

Like other arboreal monkeys, the chimpanzee is very noisy, issuing hoots and high-pitched screams at the slightest provocation.

See a picture of this animal at the bottom of my page. *** The next three animal pics will be on my page also. I think you are all smart enough to figure which is which.

Wow! It's already Campaign Day 25 ...
Yet another primate is the

Orangutan


The name orangutan means “man of the forest” in Malay. They can be found in the rain forest of northern Borneo.


This peaceful, gentle, long-haired primate lives in the rainy jungles of Borneo and Sumatra. Clumsy when moving on the ground, it spends most of its time high up in the trees. At night it sleeps on little platforms which it builds from twigs and branches, constructing a new one each night. In wet or cold weather the orangutan covers itself with leaves. A voracious eater, it will sometimes spend an entire day feasting upon the fruit of a single tree. Fruit makes up more than half of its diet but it will also eat bark, leaves, eggs and young birds.

The most arboreal of all the apes, the orangutan has especially long, flexible fingers that help it to hang and swing in the trees. The orangutan has wonderful ability to use its facial muscles, particularly its big lips.

Long arms, hook-shaped hands and feet, and a heavy body enable an orangutan to swing superbly from tree to tree and walk on the branches. A very young orangutan rides about clinging to its mother’s chest but juveniles often play and romp together. Adults are quite solitary and, other than during infrequent mating encounters, an orangutan maintains and protects its own independent home range. Even when several adults are eating at the same food source there is little interaction among them. An adult male is particularly jealous of his territory and, when encroachment does occur, will become quite aggressive and noisy, shaking branches and emitting long, loud howls.

We've reached day 24 of my campaign ...
We’re staying big. Here is the

Indian Rhinoceros
Rhinoceros unicornia

The Indian rhinoceros lives primarily in northern India and Nepal. These massive beasts have some noticeable physical differences from their African relatives. Their segmented hide looks like a formidable coat of natural body armor. It functions a bit like one also: Flexible skin between the thicker hide "plates" allows them to shift as the rhinoceros moves.

As their Latin name Rhinoceros unicornis suggests, Indian rhinos have only one horn.

Like other rhinos, these animals have sharp hearing and a keen sense of smell. They may find one another by following the trail of scent each enormous animal leaves behind it on the landscape. An Indian rhino can move very quickly when aroused. Their charges have been clocked at 30 miles (48 kilometers) an hour. Despite their bulk, they are nimble and can jump or change direction quickly.

The Indian rhino is a grazer that travels established, tunnel-like paths through its tall-grass habitat. It grasps tall grasses with its prehensile (gripping) lip. In addition to grass, rhinos eat fruit, leaves, and sometimes farm crops. They are often around water and sometimes consume aquatic plants. These animals forage in the cooler temps of morning and afternoon to avoid exerting themselves in the debilitating midday heat. When the sun is high, they often wallow or submerge themselves in water.

The prominent horn for which these rhinos are so well known has also been their downfall. Many animals have been killed for this hard, hair-like growth, which is revered for medicinal use in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The horn is also valued in North Africa and the Middle East as an ornamental dagger handle. There are only about 2,000 Indian rhinos left in the wild.

This is day 23 of my campaign ...
We’re gonna go BIG for a couple of days. Meet the

White Rhinoceros

White rhinos graze on grasses, walking with their enormous heads and squared lips lowered to the ground.

They live on Africa's grassy plains, where they sometimes gather in groups of as many as a dozen individuals. Females reproduce only every two and a half to five years. Their single calf does not live on its own until it is about three years old.

Under the hot African sun, white rhinos they take cover by lying in the shade. Rhinos are also wallowers. They find a suitable water hole and roll in its mud, coating their skin with a natural bug repellent and sun block.
.
Rhinos have sharp hearing and a keen sense of smell. They may find one another by following the trail of scent each enormous animal leaves behind it on the landscape. Their eyesight, however, is very poor; they see only about 30 feet.

White rhinos have two horns, the foremost more prominent than the other. Rhino horns grow as much as three inches (eight centimeters) a year, and have been known to grow up to 5 feet (1.5 meters) long. Females use their horns to protect their young, while males use them to battle attackers.

The prominent horn for which rhinos are so well known has been their downfall. Many animals have been killed for this hard, hair-like growth, which is revered for medicinal use in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The horn is also valued in North Africa and the Middle East as an ornamental dagger handle.

The white rhino once roamed much of sub-Saharan Africa, but today is on the verge of extinction due to poaching fueled by these commercial uses. Only about 11,000 white rhinos survive in the wild, and many organizations are working to protect this much loved animal.

We have reached day 22 of my campaign ...
By popular request, today we will learn about

Meerkats

These gregarious animals are often seen in groups, and several families may live together in a large community. Squirrel-sized meerkats are mongooses famed for their upright posture. They often stand on their rear legs and gaze alertly over the southern African plains where they live. Mothers can even nurse their young while standing. All adult meerkats—male and female—pitch in to help educate the young in hunting and survival techniques.

Meerkats (also called suricates) work together in numbers. A few will typically serve as lookouts, watching the skies for birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles, that can snatch them from the ground. A sharp, shrill call is the signal for all to take cover. While a few individuals guard the group, the rest busy themselves foraging for the foods that make up their varied diet. Meerkats will eat insects, lizards, birds, and fruit. When hunting small game, they work together and communicate with purring sounds. Meerkats are good hunters and are sometimes tamed for use as rodent-catchers.

Meerkat groups utilize several different burrows and move from one to another. Each burrow is an extensive tunnel-and-room system that remains cool even under the broiling African sun. Females give birth to two to four young each year in one of the group's burrows. Fathers and siblings help to raise meerkat young, teaching them to play and forage and alerting them to the ever present danger from above. Young meerkats are so fearful of predatory birds that even airplanes will send them diving for cover.
