Mar 31st 2011 10:50AM Personally, I believe that a very important point is being omitted - how can yogurt begin to be healthy when it is produced from milk loaded with growth hormones and antibiotics? Plus the abuse factory farm cows endure. Go organic, go local!
Dec 26th 2010 7:51PM The cancellation of Rubicon is distressing. This show kept my attention with its twists and turns - it was intelligent, the acting was good and the characters were multidimensional. Most of the series running today are way too predictable and boring.
Dec 1st 2010 5:43PM $98 for mittens??? Let's be serious! That's a ridiculous waste of money. Get a $10 pair of mittens and give the remainder to an organization providing assistance for people whose unemployment benefits have expired - or a shelter providing care for abandoned family pets. Such blatant extravagance in this financial climate is absurd.
Apr 10th 2007 1:50PM Excellent points, Loraine. Living with parrots is not for most people. While they are wonderful companions and very entertaining, they also demand a great deal of time, attention and resources to keep them healthy and happy. By no means can you just stick them in a cage in the corner and sit back and enjoy - they are not decor. Parrots need lots of out of cage time and interaction with their people. They are messy, they bite (all birds do at one time or another, many regularly), they love to chew on anything you value (woodwork, jewelry, laptops, books, telephones, you name it)and finding a birdsitter is a real challenge if you should desire to go away. Don't get me wrong, I adore my CAG's and wouldn't trade them for the world, but don't be taken in by an endearing video. If you think you want a parrot in your life, I recommend reading everything you can get your hands on and talking to as many parrot people as possible so you go into this adventure with your eyes wide open.
Apr 10th 2007 1:36PM Lostcause, I live with two greys and can assure you that there is nothing fake about that African grey! Ours love to make up (and bop to) little tunes as well as amaze us with the scope of their vocabularies and vocalizations.(BTW, the beak looks fine - I agree that beaks should not be "trimmed" under normal circumstances.)
Jan 9th 2007 2:12PM Some of us couldn't care less about what the fashion mavens dictate should or should not be worn. Personally, I feel pretty sorry for someone whose primary concern in life is whether or not boots or clothes look "sexy" on themselves or others. Get a life and stop expending precious energy on such shallow concerns. I'd much rather be judged on my character and actions than on something so superfluous as whether or not I'm dressed to please you.
