    Thanks JK – I’m several miles northwest from that fire. The fire companies around here were all on standby. They reported only minor injuries to firefighters, but I hope no pets were lost. It’s a miracle that no residents were hurt.

    Glad that your area was not affected Joan and that you are safe. Same thought regarding pets. Along same lines did see something new today. A lost kitty poster with FOUND! written across it along with a smiley face. Glad for unknown kit and owner!
    Synchronicity at play again JK, re Awesome Discovery as just today had long chat about ancient Greece and mythology with one of the trainers at gym whose family comes from Olympia. OK this is Egypt-related, but still. One of the statues looks to be a woman too! Could she have been a pharoah as a BTW, women who ruled wore beards (fake) as sign of their leadership.

    Petition Update:

    Victory! UW-Madison Closes Cruel Cat Lab


    animal testing on cats
    Horrible experiments on cats have ended at least in WI!
    Victory for cats used in animal testing!
    Following an intensive PETA campaign to expose and end cruel and archaic sound-localization experiments on cats at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UW), the federal grant money has expired, the lead experimenter has retired, and the embattled laboratory has closed its doors for good. The remaining four cats in the laboratory, including 3-year-old tabbies Rainbow and Mango, have been adopted into private homes.

    Finally – the world is getting with the program that “cats rule”!!!! So many furries – so little time!!! I haven’t even visited the 2nd Cat Café in my very own city, and both purry establishments are just a short hop and skip away from the jewellery craft supply shoppe that I now frequent. My bad!

    Oh no JK – that’s not nice at all!
    If you’re “jonesing” for Cadbury your friend on this side of the 49th parallel as Canada could get you some as we have it here. Would it be considered smuggling or “bootlegging” ie is the US going into “Prohibition” mode? Don’t want to get me arrested as jailhouse orange is so not my fave colour. 😉

    Thanks for the offer KJ!
    I’m really not a chocolate snob – not as bad as any chocolate will do/remember: any dude will do/LOL!
    Usually as long as it’s dark version – even semi-sweet baking chocolate will work! 😉
