    United we stand, Divided we fall. Said over 200 yrs ago and still very true. It doesn’t seem like we’ve been so divided and polarized as a nation since the civil war.
    This nation was built not on extremism but on consensus, compromise and inclusion. Ideals that are fast vanishing in incivility, narcissism and greed.

    I was on a walk at a local Nature/Wetlands Conservatory today and ran into two families playing Pokemon Go together. Two fathers with 4 kids between them and one older teen. They were happy, kids giggling their heads off, outside, working together and I’d bet, it was the first time in far too long that Dad(s) had taken young’uns out for a few hours in nature.

    They’d found a rare spawn or something and were taking turns trying to catch it with the kids happily watching a family of Osprey on a nest off in the distance and a beaver dam near by in the river during the 20 minute or so spawn breaks or what ever its called.
    I don’t play Pokemon but I think I like this fad.

    May I suggest interjecting one word in that sentence? Make that ‘ethical’ doctors. The unethical or greedy ones just consider the pharma-sales persons sample bags and sales incentives a perk of the job.
    Regretfully we have too many of those for our safety.

    You just have to be slightly smarter than the cat.
    Pill wrapped in favorite cat food, grab cat by scruff of neck, grab both ears in hand holding scruff, pull ears gently back til cat’s mouth opens (it’s a reflex) stuff pill as far back into throat as possible.
    Gently massage cat’s throat to induce the swallow reflex
    (I said GENTLY! Do not strangle cat)
    Release cat.
    Swear profusely as cat spits out pill minus cat treat.
    Rinse and repeat until your bleeding too profusely to go on.
    Go to ER to get stitches.
    Get a dog.

    “Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon.
    Going to the candidates’ debate.
    Laugh about it, shout about it
    When you’ve got to choose
    Every way you look at this you lose.”

    Terry Pratchett’s Death really really liked cats, if that’s him, he’s not there just for the kitty. He’d also be there for who ever did him in.
    As Susan commented in Thief of Time, “Must of been very interesting when the taxidermist who killed those kittens met her grandfather…”

    In-laws and out-laws are why I told my fiance “Ferget it, if you want to marry me, we elope” He’s adored me for 33 yrs now just because of that. Breezy, in this time line, needs to get a clue.

    I actually did this with my black lab once, she picked her own bed and slept in it the rest of her life. Absolutely loved the bed. A woman watching us in the pet store pick the bed came over afterwards and said “When I die I wanna come back as Your dog”

    Funny pun, it made me wince, but Ebola (thankfully) wasn’t even a blip on a rabid linguists radar when vinyl was being pressed.

    Kudos! You’ve raised them to be curious, intelligent and not self absorbed. A mark of seriously good parenting.
