A Tick on the Dog is Worth an Eye on the Bod – Tick Season is On!

I was completely taken off guard when, after a morning romp around the yard and a doggy bath in the laundry tub, I found a tick on Sniffer’s belly.  But you see, this didn’t happen this past weekend, it was a couple of weekends ago before I had even mowed the yard for the first time.  The weather, while moving the temperature up to around 70 for a couple of days, was primarily still cold and wet; thus, the reason for my disbelief.  But I knew then that tick season had already begun.

Birds of a Feather Get Shot Together – if They’re Turkeys

It's just about wild turkey hunting time in the Tri-State, and just like the lyrics that are sung in "Chevy Van," by Sammy Johns, "...and that's all right with me!"  Sorry, but I don't like wild turkeys.  They are, in my mind, just like deer - a nuisance.  They wander around aimlessly with no real purpose, running onto rural roadways and causing automobile accidents.  They spread ticks and lice, too.  So, I say, let the hunting games begin!

Cat Bites Can Cost You and Cause a Small Cat-astrophe

Okay, so puns aside, a cat bite on your hand is something you normally shrug off and don't think about, outside of the irritation while it heals.  Heck, I have a cat and play with her all of the time.  Yes, I let her bite my hands because I know that she's just playing.  Unfortunately, there's evidence to support that this is exactly what you don't want due to bacteria that can get transferred from the cat's mouth into your hands' joints.  The result can be painful and dangerous.

March 20 is Meatout Day (No Meat) – Not For Me!

At first I was excited that today was "Meatout" Day because I thought the term meant that you are supposed to go to a restaurant and eat meat!  You know, meat - out.  Then I found out what it really meant and I got kind of depressed.  Why?  Because I'm an omnivore, that's why.  Sure, I eat lots of plants, but I also enjoy eating meats.  So could I go for a day without eating meat?
