A letter from Michael Moore

I am not a huge fan of Michael Moore - I don't dislike him either, really I just don't care about him at all. It does bug me that he always wears a hat - I am not sure why, it just does. But I guess it's his right as an American to always wear a hat and it's my right as an American to be annoyed by that. Funny how that works. I wonder if he has a giant closet full of hats like Elton John has for his glasses?

For some strange reason every time I think of Michael Moore, I picture this guy - Bruce Vilanch. You have to admit with no hat, more hair and different glasses, Michael Moore would look an awful lot like this guy.

I was reading my usual blogs and came across a link to this letter that Michael Moore wrote and I found it to be very interesting so I thought I would pass it along. If you have a few minutes I would recommend reading it.

P.S. It's a good blog, if you don't regularly read it you should.

Fuzzy's recovery

As some of you know our wild and crazy cat Fuzzy had surgery on October 10 to repair the ligament in her right knee. She is healing well and got her stitches out just over 3 weeks ago. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal to get stitches out, but it was because it also means she doesn't have to wear that stupid cone anymore! Fuzzy hated the cone. She had to wear it for 2 weeks strait so that she wouldn't mess with her stitches and to allow the incision to heal properly.

Do you know how much time cats spend cleaning themselves each day? I don't know for sure but I would estimate that it's at least a couple of hours. Fuzzy had not been able to clean herself for 2 weeks because of that stupid cone! She would hold her paw under her chin and the cone and lick the cone. She thought she was licking her paw, but it was just the cone.

3 weeks ago (2 weeks after her surgery) the vet said that her range of motion is good and that he didn't notice any clicking or popping when he extended her leg. She is supposed to go back in next week for a follow up visit. We are hoping that at that point - 6 weeks since the surgery - that he will say she can come out of her crate, but it could take as long as 3 months total. Cross your fingers! She is getting a little stir crazy in that crate.

Fuzzy the day she was released from the vet (2 days after surgery) heavily drugged with kitty morphine.

Antiques Roadshow

I was watching Antiques Roadshow the other night and they had a segment called “Roadshow Treasures” on that episode.

An older lady brought in a federal style game table to be appraised and my two favorite appraisers, Leslie and Leigh Keno got all excited. She explained that she bought it at a garage sale a while back for $25.00. It was all black and moldy so she brought it home and cleaned it with turpentine and some type of oil. As she cleaned it she noticed that it had a nice flower vine and bow inlay on it. Leslie and Leigh were so relieved that she didn’t damage the original finish when she cleaned it.

I thought she was going to have a heart attack when they told her that they thought she could get $225,000.00 to $300,000.00 for it at a well publicized auction. Next they flip to the actual auction and the lady’s face as the auctioneer calls out bids that are being submitted. 100, 180, 200, 250, 350, 400, 440, 490.

Yep - $490,000.00! How rich do you have to be to spend almost a half a million dollars on a table no larger than an office chair? Wow, can you even imagine being that poor person who sold it to her for $25.00?

I love Antiques Roadshow and every time I watch it I think of what I have that might be super valuable 200 years from now.

Funny URLs

Thanks to CK, soon to be CA for emailing this to me!

All of these are legitimate companies dealing in regular products and services, but they (obviously) didn't think their domain names through. Most of them are prime candidates for the "What was I thinking?" Award...

ALL these websites actually exist, selling something totally benign (and work-safe, in case you're wondering).
