    People prefer sugar to corn sweeteners by taste, even if they don’t know which they are eating.

    My ten-year-old (and a half) granddaughter is visiting us for a couple of weeks. This morning she found two of our 7 week old fosters, each curled up in a cup of her bra. OUTRAGE!

    What did she expect, the kitties thought it was a padded K-cup. OK it is a AA.

    Consumer brands of Sno-Kone syrup are made of corn sweeteners, so I make my own. It is simple to buy flavor concentrates, two brands are the most popular, and the highest quality.
    .
    Rio Syrup Co. in Saint Louis. They have over 250 flavors to choose from, and sell four ounce sample bottles for you to try before commiting to a big bottle. It is best to call their toll free number to get a catalog: 800-325-7666.
    .
    Their website for about 150standard flavors is:

    for about 100 specialty flavors, goto:

    Then Gold Medal Products in Cincinnati Ohio pretty much invented the Sno-Kone machine, and the Sno-Kone industry. They have not really carried the ball with consumables. Flavors in the catalog often get discontinued without notice, some of the discontinued flavors are pretty good, but now only available from Rio.
    .

    They offer a limited range of flavors, but a national distributor network. My Shavatron Sno-Kone ice shaver is a Gold Medal product, mostly I swear by it, but I have been known to swear at it. Use their website to request a catalog.
    You can ask them where their nearest dealer is at 800-888-3346, their website is:

    They didn’t invent the popcorn machine, Kingsley did; but GM perfected it.

    I think that Chesney had an good idea. We have a dog park less than a block away. The people don’t pick up after their dogs, and when the wind is wrong it smells horrible!

    I don’t bother my cats when I need to move, I use a wheelchair.

    My Router was a Maine Coon, and was just over 33 pounds. My vet said for his frame he was the right weight Router was 24 when he died. I would suggest you change to a Board Certified Feline Practitioner.
    .
    What is your vet’s specialty? A large animal vet with a side practice in pets?

    There was a time when the doctors thought I needed a cat scan, but my problem was so minor that they gave me a kitten scan instead.
