Doing the bus stop hop

This savvy kitty rides the bus to the fish market every day. No one knows who she belongs to, or how she knows when to get off the bus. It's an x-file folks, but the truth is out there.
What we do know: the bus people have named the cat Macavity, after the mystery cat in T.S. Eliot's poem, which is awesome.

Cuter than Beanie Babies?

Apparently Webkinz are. They sound a lot like the characters my kids like to play with on their gamecube game Animal Crossing, except they come with a stuffed animal to snuggle once the computer is shut off. Some people worry about kids spending too much time on the computer, but parents who are smart already limit their kids computer time, and it sounds like there are great lessons to learn about caring for animals and budgeting money. I think I want one!

Russians have nearly completed a 45 year project to domesticate foxes. They have blue eyes, woffly noses, and floofy tails. Apparently, They are smarter at reading humans than chimps.

Real American Idols

Fred Thompson, of Law and Order fame, and possible presidential candidate, has an article about why bad girls are so five minutes ago and Nice Girls are better.

He says:

"If you tune into the news, you’re going to end up hearing or reading at least the headlines of stories you’d probably rather not know about. Somehow, I know that Paris Hilton may have violated her parole. I’m not sure how it happened, but I even know a little about Britney Spears’s hairdo, divorce, and trip to rehab. These bits of cultural trivia, I really wish I hadn’t digested."

Right on, Fred. More about why Britney, Anna Nicole, and Paris are not worthy but Candace Parker is.

Cure your kids Asthma and allergies

Wow, for anyone with allergies or asthma, this is nice news:

I guess my granma was right- you are what you eat and all that.

Acheiving Boyhood Dream

What was your first dream? Didja want to be an astronaut? A ballerina? My son currently wants to be a Jedi. When we were kids my brother loved that book Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, and he wanted to *be* the Steam Shovel. We don't always get to achieve our dreams, but this guy does:

He gets to be a Space Ranger like he always dreamed. That's nice.
