I did my back exercises in the morning, I took a 30 minute walk this evening and I kept my calories in check - 1153 total for the day.

My health goals for tomorrow are to replicate today.

I found this on a Bing search here Angela.

So the answer to my question "Can skunks be housebroken?" is essentially "No, but they might get it right just often enough to keep you hoping they can be housebroken."

I'll stick to outside skunks, thank you!!!

I am going to start posting health goals for the next day here, in hopes that posting them will goad me into doing them. I am going to tackle my total lack of will power one day at a time.

Tomorrow my health goals are to:
1. Do my back stretching exercises
2. Do some aerobic exercise
3. Keep my total caloric intake to no more than 1500 calories

Am I mistaken, or do I recall descented skunks being kept as pets?

I have heard of this too, despite the fact that skunks are particularly prone to rabies. I'm not sure it is legal in all states. Even with regular rabies shots for the skunk, I still would not want a de-scented skunk as a pet because I do not think they are smart enough to be litter box trained. If any Critter Cafe readers have "indoor skunks", please let me know if this is a correct assumption.

My weight can vary up to 4 pounds over the day. Thats why I always do my weigh in first thing in the morning before getting dressed or having a coffee. I think it,s the best time for consistent results.

I usually do too. I just forgot this morning.

8-Year-Old Girl Gets Gifts From Crows She’s Been Feeding For 4 Years



I feed crows. Lately I have been finding occasional pieces of broken glass on top of the soil in my vegetable garden. This article is making me wonder if my crow friends are bringing me gifts.

173.2

I am hoping this is just because I forgot to weigh myself this morning and that I am heavier in the evening from having eaten breakfast and lunch and several cups of tea...

A new stray just showed up at our house. For now I am calling him/her BUOC (Big Ugly Orange Cat). His ear is clipped, which I hope means he/she is neutered/spayed. "He" has a big head and big paws, but he his skinny. Spawnie is a lover, not a fighter. He vocally complained when I fed BUOC today. BUOC actually let me pet him/her, so I doubt it is feral... perhaps a lost pet? We'll see if he starts coming around every day.

Eric will just be thrilled spitless...

When I was a kid, my family used to go up to Lake Tahoe for a vacation every August. On the drive up to the lake we used to pass a restaurant called Pow Wow's. This restaurant also had a gas station on the property. Their sign used to read "Eat At Pow Wow's And Get Gas".

That sign made all four of us kids laugh summer after summer after summer.

It looked closer to your first picture, Vic. The recipe I used also called for peas, but since I don't like cooked peas I left them out.

Lions and Sabre-tooth cats kill in similar fashions, they both went for the throat though Lions and feline Saber-tooth cats are only related to each other by being Felines.


According to a docent at the La Brea Tar Pits, current thinking on saber toothed cats is that they just stabbed their prey where ever they could get a tooth in, and then waited for the victim to bleed out.

Did you know that the Smilodon Californicus is the California State Fossil?

Meow!

I made pasta primavera for dinner on St Patrick's Day... not at all traditional but it was very green since it included asparagus, snap peas, fresh parsley and a little chiffonade of fresh mint.
