    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    1. Rodger,

      I have a premium theme from being a premium member with WordPress.
      It’s 99 a year, but for the domain, endless creative options, huge storage space and NO advertisements–it’s well worth it.

      I hope this helps! Please, visit again soon!

  14. Many cats prefer horizontal surface to scratch on rather than vertical.
    Select the toys that you want to add to the cat tree then attach them where you want them to hang.
    Scratching is a natural behaviour for cats, although you’ve probably figured this out by now given the state of your furniture and
    curtains.

    don’t be discouraged. As their claws grow out they’ll be tempted to scratch everything around them.

  28. Thank you so much for these wonderful posts. Great news as well as very wise choices and decisions here. Spent a good deal of time reading them, and, related articles then sharing.
    Kids and parents helped reunite and be much better for it with simply support to work through things. Just Wonderful! Question those who were not helped, are older now. Age isn’t a magic wand if there’s a difficult foundation. Sure seems the parents are more likely to turn More to drugs without connection to their children.
    Giving Cards are quite a Wonderful idea. Spirit of Giving isn’t Getting. Have become quite lost in stuff, materialism, greed. Shown quite clearly for a number of years. Thankful this is turning around more in recent months, last year or so. KIVA is a great gift consideration. Be nice for a family to give in support of a group, cause and even get a return on their investment.
    Mayor is doing, what seems to me very logical for other decision makers. Live what you choose, perhaps a week a month as you choose for others. Something I noticed, many disabled have dietary needs, supplements which are Not considered. Quite sad for the ill who easily made to Stay ill, or even more so. Very Thankful for his efforts, awareness. Punishing the poor, disabled was getting quite out of hand. Logically, helping them UP makes nothing but sense. Clearly, is exponentially more possible if doors are open, they’re supported, understood.
    Loved These!! Now, following More posts & causes. =D
