Dogs are the eighth wonder of the world! I wonder if there are dogs on other planets; if so, they’re a wonder of the universe!
My cat, Penelope, has issued the official declaration, it being cold out, this being her and my first winter together, she doesn’t like snow. Which makes sense, because it probably hurts her paws. When she goes outside (part of my program to fulfill all her needs), she continues, only outside now, to sit in one place for a long time. Extended sitting, she probably feels, is impractical when your feet hurt. (Don’t think about that too hard.) Continue reading “Dog Power! (Not A Big Game Sighting!)”
It has come to our attention you’re considering naming your band “Manatee Revolution,” which we manatees find offensive, and vow to do things to stop. Manatees are tired of being objectified and having our charm and looks used commercially without our consent.
I recently saw Marcy Kelly and Rickie Louise Miller at the Knickerbocker, a club in my hometown; a wonderful show! The band’s “Sugar,” usually fronted by Marcy and Natalia Rosso. It’s mostly indescribable …

As you know, it’s getting cold in the Northeast USA. Squirrels are stocking up for a nutty Christmas, the common housecat waking to a frosty rooftop, and humans busy roasting toasty chestnuts, sending plumes of white smoke out the chimneys of their winter homes … putting bicycles away for the season.
During the harsh winter the rare Italian Bear (Ursus Theodorus) does something remarkable. His unique contribution to society is … He sings!
Similar to the animatronic Country Bear made famous by Walt Disney, Theodorus, like all bears, does hibernate in the cold part of the year, but unlike others, he has trouble sleeping, so spends winter creating, whittling away in his cozy den for months on end … taking only a periodic nap now and then.
