I learned from an Animal Planet show last night that baby sloths are really cute little guys and that female three-toed sloths scream when they are in heat.

Diamonds have never lost value in the last 10,000 years. No other investment item can say that. They don't increase in value very rapidly, but you'll always get your money back.

If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

I'm perfectly OK with teaching this old dog a new trick.
none of the cats i have had would eat wet food. it was offered once in a while and not takers. my last Siamese was 14 when i died. thomas is almost eleven, and has only eaten dry. i buy a good quality dry food and they thrive. must have lots of water available at all times.

Can't resist it, I'm sorry to hear, Babe, that you died. Write your obituary so we know who to send flowers to! (I'm the queen of typos, I just couldn't resist!)

Wine cubes: When you have a little leftover wine from dinner, pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze it. "Wine cubes" are perfect to use in making stock and other cooking.

Plus, on a hot summer day, filling a tall glass with them and sipping the melt-off is just plain good!

The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body. Therefore, left-handed folks are always in their right mind.

I am left-hnded.
