Saw this amusing Carlashes product in Jeanne Moos's CNN segment. It is hilarious especially if you imagine seeing a pair in one of those muscle cars, Hummers or trucks. It would really look adorable on a mini-cooper, I must say. Seriously, it's like putting a pink flamingo in the front yard, but then again, it's just me....I could just hear hubby say, "ah, NO!"....but hey, to each his own, different strokes for different folks.

Adopt a Penguin

As a birthday gift to our nephew ( a future marine biologist!), we gave him an Adopt A Penguin gift last January. For $49, our nephew had the privilege to name a (his adopted) penguin, he also got a book about this majestic birds and updates on its progress from being a chick to being a juvenile. The updates are very detailed and sometimes make us want to adopt them all . It is a great gift idea, very educational, and it made us more aware of the plight of these birds and what we could do and shouldn't do to ensure the perpetuation of species. Suffice it to say, our nephew's adoptee is coming back to its colony next month (to lay eggs) so we are looking forward to more updates (yes, the gift-givers get copies of the updates too).

Good Purchase

Got 2 of these beds (the round blue beds-for smaller dogs) for 9 bucks each from a local store-not for our greys but for our 2 male cats so we can reclaim our favorite Stickley chairs. These are cheap dog beds but very well- built and easy to wash too. And most importantly, the critters obviously love 'em.
