I used it to get them into their coop yesterday, before it got dark. I don't know how many times that will work, so I'll use it sparingly. The oil was cold enough to be in chunks, and they like that. ... Read more

The little puppy insists on going with me. She gets so tired. I think I need to figure out some sort of backpack to put her into, but don't know if she would appreciate that. We walked 2.4 miles and that was too much for her tiny legs, quic... Read more

I had some turkey for lunch. I had cooked two breasts that were on sale last week, and one is chopped up and in the freezer. I love turkey meat--plan to raise some myself sometime in the near future. I felt full enough, and looking at tha... Read more

My cat is an Aries, getting close to 2 years old. She is a tortoise-shell, neutered when she was about 11 months old. The big grey cat I used to have was her uncle, and he used to encourage all of the female cats in the neighborhood to come ar... Read more
