War is Hell

Well, as a follow-up to my gun blog, I hope you’ll take a look at the photos in this web site on World War II. I am pretty sure that many of you out there have no personal knowledge of the war, and these photos are an amazing overview of what was happening where and the types of airplanes used and the types of guns.  Yes, I realize that there had to...

Guns Alive!

Guns Alive!

Posted by on Aug 30, 2015 | 4 comments

You can get ’em almost anywhere… Well, a very poignant blog called It’s Noodle has put out a plea for us to try to get our government to make gun laws that will stick so that anthros will stop killing themselves and others and since mama has just come back from two states in which guns are advertised and sold and traded EVERYWHERE, she...

      Who says I need THEM with me to have a ball? I am perfectly capable of entertaining myself without help from ANYONE.         So there! Anyway, THEY are back in communication with me so maybe I’ll get with it and get these blogs in shape again. I was trying to work on mama’s IPad and frankly, I’m...

🐱😻😸🙀😽 Forgive me, dear readers, but I have stayed up too late on this Thursday eve and cannot bring myself out of my lazing, languishing mood to pitty pat on the keyboard of my computer and so, to bed… Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow shall bring forth thoughts and musings of a functioning, but sometimes frazzled kitty who was in dire need of...

Well, at least THEY send me news of THEIR adventures, sort of. If you can consider unusual origins of everyday items earthshaking news for yours truly, abandoned and forgotten here with Sue, THE MAGNIFICENT ( hear that, mama?). But do you really know where catsup came from? Get this: the Chinese word, ki-tsiap, a fermented fish sauce brought home by Dutch...

Well, mama is reading this book about a little town in the Perigord where one of the specialties is foie gras and lots of small producers make what, according to the book, is found on 2/3rds of French tables at one time or another, and so mama started looking up ethical foie gras producers and found that in Spain, there is an ethical raiser of geese who is...

WOW, those guys are something else!!! I’m so proud of these American warriors. The shooting happened just before 6pm in the last carriage of the train, which was carrying 554 passengers. The man had several weapons in his luggage, including a Kalashnikov, an automatic pistol and razor blades.  (Guardian UK) Boy, is that something? I saw this on the...

Well, piggies may go to market but this little kitty went to school! I think it’s great that a school adopts a smart kitty to be its mascot, sort of.  And how nice that everyone accepts her in the classrooms and such.  I always thought that kitties should be accepted in restaurants and allowed in all sorts of places, on a leash, of course, but oh,...

HAH, Loulou finally acknowledged that we EXIST! This little Mya loves kitties…she is gazing adoringly at ME. Well, I’ve been thinkin…it occurs to me that sometimes, just occasionally, not very often, I made a couple of tongue-in-cheek (whatever that is) comments about the canine world or its inhabitants and I thought that today would be a good...

MY picture on the box, right? And I’m talkin’ turkey here (but not that November feathered gobbler kind). Well, mama did some drawings for a dear friend who lives in a magic land called Breakfast Creek and she, mama, just received a gazillion thank-yous with my little mug all over them (well, most of them): a tiny pill box (with my face, of...

Don’t be fooled!!! That kitty wouldn’t know a cherry tomato if it bit him! Well, I’ve been thinkin’. Mama feeds me right on time every day, morning and night (well, with a few exceptions when she has put too little on the plate in order to make me svelte and beautiful and I am in disagreement about that), but sometimes, only...

Low affect High affect Maybe kitties have low affect, the external expression of emotion attached to ideas or mental representations of objects or events.  Kitties are so cool and collected all the time, but if something comes up (a loud plastic bag opening, a door slamming near the tail, thunder, important things like that), they are bammo, right there,...

Ha, ha, ha, well, that’s a little word-play on melanzane, which is eggplant in Italian and since this vegetarian recipe is made with those things, whatever they are (are they EGGS or PLANTS?), I thought I would just mess around with the title. Okay, forget it. But these appetizers that mama learned from friends in LA who own a bunch of restaurants...

Well, I promised you the recipe for Tian de Courgette (see above) and so I will follow through today, but are you wondering just a little bit about today’s photo? Well, a friend of mama sent it to her (read: ME) and guess what it’s called? Cocktail Hour, that’s what. And since these guys are bugging out again to visit mama’s brother...

Well, as I have mentioned before, adaptation and flexibility are mama’s favorite words, especially now that she is…er…shall we say…not 40 any longer. So when several family members arrived bearing virtual vegetarian banners (well, not literally, but they do have good reasons for their change), mama delved into her stash of recipes and came up with...

Meow… Well, I’ve just read Mousebreath’s interview with Cujo, the Kitty, star of blogs and books, and I thought it might be fun to let you in on a little story of the movie, Cujo, which was most definitely NOT about a kitty and the script for which was written by papa when they lived in Hollywood several eons ago. One day on the set, the...
