Words to Consider

  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

Now that's the way to sun yourself!!!! Boy don't think this ole back will do that though!!! too cute!!! caught one of ours outside yesterday draped over a pillow that was on top of an old metal milk crate!!(don't ask!!) but moved before I could get the camera!! they are a true source of entertainment!!! and cheap too!!! have a great day dear!

Judy Merrill-Smith

Hi! I've been reading your blog recently, and I enjoy it very much. LOVED your cat picture! You should transfer it to fabric and sew it into a purse or something. Great fun! Thanks for the smile, Judy

denise t.

my fat cat has pushed out the same 2 screen windows twice so far this season...with dh repairing them, but not changing back from plastic mesh to the stronger metal mesh... at some point he will give in and buy the metal mesh... the cat seems to have the push-out technique down pat...hee,hee, needs a belly snorggle.


Denise: Going to metal mesh won't help if your cat is just pushing the screen out. That means he's pulling the spline out of the frame channel. Try using an aluminum "no push" grille from Home Depot.


Linda: great source of entertainment indeed . . . we don't watch TV, we watch cats!

Judy: Hi, glad to meet you! I may just try printing it on fabric; I think I have some around here somwhere . . .

Denise/Brian: Unless, of course, he's doing what Maggie did last year: lay in the open window and roll against the screen until it comes out and falls on the ground under the window, followed by one very surprised cat. . . we finally just nailed it on. We have metal mesh in the back door screens, but Victoria climbs up and pulls it out, so we cheated this year: we just cut one big piece and thumbtacked it over both openings. It looks kind of tacky (oooohh, BAD pun . . . sorry), but I don't care. It'll be easy to replace.
