Dry Food Recall

The massive pet food recall just got bigger. Hill's Pet Nutrition recalled one of its brands of dry cat kibble.

Second Firm Recalls Pet food

This food is only available from a vet, but it scares me that officials are not even in agreement over the cause yet. The FDA says it found melamine, but could not confirm NY State Lab finding of aminopterin.

What is going on?

Does anybody have any good homemade cat and dog food recipies they'd like to share?

Yikes. Watch out for those attack cats!

War On Christianity

I'm not happy with religious symbol based chocolate sculpture in general, but items like the one above don't infuriate me the way the life-sized chocolate Jesus created by controversial "artist" Cosimo Cavallaro who plans to show the piece during Holy Week, no less.

Choc Full O' Anger .

I say we should turn up the heat, both literally and figuratively, until this blasphemy is gone.

The nerve of some "artists"!

Troll Trawl?

High Profile Web Experts Call For A Code Of Conduct In The Blogosphere

Freedom of speech in the blogosphere is being threatened by a small group of twisted individuals who lack the ability to disagree in a civil manner.

The recent deplorable incident concerning conservative columnist Cathy Seipp is a case in point:

As Cathy Seipp Lay Dying, Her Nemesis Took His Parting Shot on the Web

Will the actions of a few nasty people force regulation on the blogosphere? I sure hope not.

The trolls --and you know who you are-- need to self-regulate their behavior.

TV Watch

This cooler than cool MP4 Video Watch downloads videos from a PC directly to itself for viewing on a 1 1/2" color OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode).

When not in video mode, it can download and play MP3 and WMA music files (compatible with DRM 9), display digital photographs in JPEG format, or be used as a standard digital watch.

Sweet! I want one of these.

Infectious Giggles

I don't sprechen Sie Deutsches, but this weather woman's attack of inappropriate laughter is universally funny.

I purposely chose not to post the video of the Portland "peace" idiots burning an American soldier in effigy but Michelle Malkin did here .

...or to post the photo of the moron defecating on the burning American flag but did here .

What a collection of stoopids.

Monster Toad

Australians Capture 'Monster' Toad The Size Of Small Dog

The 15-inch-long poisonous cane toad has a body the size of a football and weighing nearly 2 pounds, the "monster toad" is among the largest specimens ever captured in Australia.

Below is the largest Southern toad [Bufo terrestris] specimen that I have captured in my yard.

Fever... In The Morning

From the MSM coverage, you'd think Al Gore had... "the whole world in his hands."

Al Gore's appearance before Rep. John Dingell's [D-MI] all powerful Energy and Commerce Committee in the morning and Sen. Barbara Boxer's [D-CA] Environment and Public Works Committee in the afternoon provided us some rich material...

"The planet has a fever," Gore said. "If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don't say, 'Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it's not a problem.' If the crib's on fire, you don't speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action."

Planetary fever? Oh, please!

We shouldn't be getting our science facts from blowhard C-average students who didn't take science classes!

Spiderman Strikes Again

This amazing video is of Alain Robert, a daredevil popularly known as the “French Spiderman”. It was taken from an office on the 51st floor of KLCC twin tower on March 20,2007.

French 'Spiderman' Nabbed Climbing Malaysian Twin Towers

Look ma, no ropes!

This man has more nerve than brains. I worry about who would take care of his dog if something happened to him?


Long Live Knut!

Crazy animal rights activists argued that this polar bear cub be euthanized rather than brought up suffering the humiliation of being treated as a domestic pet.

'We Want This Baby Polar Bear Dead' Say Animal Rights Lobby

Knut the cute Polar bear will NOT be destroyed despite fears over his 'humanization', Berlin Zoo's chief vet said today.

Good! At least someone isn't listening to the kooks.

Only one bad word?


Pet Food Recall

If you have dogs or cats who eat canned or pouch food, please do them a favor and check the website for a complete listing of all the flavors in each brand.

You'd be surprised how many well-known brands are listed, from the very pricey to the generic.

I found 4 cans of the Publix stuff. And although the UPCs differed slightly (by only digit), I'm playing it safe & throwing them out.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

May the luck of the Irish be with you today.

Here's a little humor to get you by...

This guy does into a bar and says, "Hey barman, give me 6 double vodka's!"
The barman lines them up on the bar and goes, "Man, you must've had one hell of a day!"
The guy says, "Yeah, I just found out my older brother is gay."
Next day, the same guy comes into the same bar and orders the same drinks. The same barman is there and goes, "Now what?"
The guy goes, "I just found out my younger brother is gay, too."
Next day, same guy, same bar, same drinks. The barman goes,"Damn! Doesn't anybody in your family like women?"
The man replies, "Yeah, my wife!"

I guess he was just happy on the outside and not where it counts...

I know it all evens out in the end, but the idea of losing an hour really frosts me.

It was one of those mornings when we got off to a slow start.

Rosie Inversion

Bats hang upside down...

Squirrels hang upside down...

And now large, foul-mouthed bloviators do it too...

Rosie O'Donnell says she hangs upside down for up to a half hour a day to improve her mental state.

You just can't make up this stuff.

Republicans Beware

Ann Coulter has an excellent piece today: Shooting Elephants In A Barrell.

Coulter writes, "Everything is illegal, but only Republicans get prosecuted." As always, she provides many examples that prove her point... some you might not know.

It's worth reading.

Did Chris Matthews, host of Hardball, have a stroke or did he start celebrating St. Patrick's day two weeks too soon?

He is s**t-faced!


Russian Journalist Dies in Fall From Window

Ivan Safronov, the military affairs writer for Kommersant, died Friday after falling from a fifth-story window in the stairwell of his apartment building in Moscow, officials said.

Hmmm, banana peel? I think not.

This latest incident makes fourteen journalists that have died under mysterious circumstances during Putin's reign. The New Yorker had an excellent piece on the subject in January. Be warned, it's long, but fascinating.

Why are Vladimir Putin’s Opponents Dying?

This is totalitarian repression of the press. It would behoove our journalists to remember that when they write their hit pieces about the "repression of free speech" by the Bush White House.

Gay Aspersion At Conservative Conference Draws Flak

Everybody knows that people have the Constitutionally-protected right to say unspeakable things about America, conservatives, the Catholic Church, assassination attempts on the President and the Vice-President...

Heaven forbid a conservative pundit like Ann Coulter makes the mistake of thinking she has the same freedom of speech rights.

In my opinion, it was an unfortunate choice of words. It would've been funnier had Ann used the word 'pansy', or 'fairy', or 'fancy boy', or 'wand-waving Tinkerbell'...

Or Laura Ingraham's favorite, 'Silky Pony'...

Or Rush's favorite, 'Breck Girl'...

But those words don't land you into rehab... yet!

Real Heroes

The Real American Idol: Why The New York Times Buried Maj. Bruce Crandall's Medal Of Honor On Page 15 from

Dennis Henninger's points out that the MSM is not celebrating the warrior ethos the way it used to in the our own peril.

I agree. Thank goodness there are alternative media sources that do tout the valor of our real heroes.

My one complaint is that Mr. Henninger misspelled the first name of Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester , the first woman to receive the Silver Star since World War II.
