Niger Mon Amour...

To quote a real diva,
Olivia Soprano:


What the well-armored neocon warrior wears to war....oops!
Errr....I mean court.
They don't actually go to war themselves,
they send other people's kids.

Imagine looking down to see your own eleven-year-old feet look like this and how you would feel.

A cat and her box...
who am I to deny Taboo the new cave
she lay claim to after my trip to the food warehouse,
where you can't get your items bagged but
you can pick out an empty box
to cart all the crap home?

May all the critters at
Friday's Ark always be as snug as this little bug.

Don't forget to drop in at the
Cat Blogosphere for WCB!

I know this isn't quite the same as a link from

but it's meant to be cheery nonetheless,
as only flowers from a winter garden can be.

War Is Not The Answer...

Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Beyond Vietnam"
Address delivered to the Clergy and Laymen
Concerned about Vietnam, at Riverside Church
4 April 1967
New York City


"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."

"War is not the answer. Communism will never be defeated by the use of atomic bombs or nuclear weapons. Let us not join those who shout war and, through their misguided passions, urge the United States to relinquish its participation in the United Nations."

"We can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate."

Robert Scheer: Brooding Prince’s Soliloquy...

© DC/Vertigo Comics

"As for the speech’s content, it is by necessity an exercise in the absurd, as the president previewed in his soliloquy for doubting Republican senators his conviction that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has had a profound change of heart. This radical Shiite leader, who only days ago turned over Saddam Hussein to the tender mercies of a mob chanting its allegiance to the even more fanatical Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr, now is expected to lead U.S. troops in battle against his chief political ally and sponsor of much of Iraq’s most deadly sectarian fighting. Even Bush must know by now that those fellows with whom he is in bed over there bear us nothing but hate. Speak not of the pangs of despised love."

62 °F at 2:03 AM EST
Taboo's just sleeping off the effects of
the holidays and ALL the wonderful
food and presents and kind visitors.

Maybe bears have given up hibernation for global warming, but she has not. She wants to be awakened when the sun beats down again on the porch. The way the "winter" is going, going, gone ~~ that could be next week.

It's a good thing critters have a berth on
Friday's Ark!
[Bears in cages, please.]

In Loving Memory

of our incredible boy kitty,
the sweetest we ever knew
[except at the vet, where he was ferocious with a vengence].

Our hearts miss him every day,
as does his beloved Taboo [link],
who was his life-long companion.
