"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

There was a National Hairball Awareness Day and I missed it?!?


Temporary display of human and animal hairballs on display from April 25 – May 4, 2008

April 17, 2008, Washington, D.C. – The National Museum of Health and Medicine of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (NMHM) will commemorate National Hairball Awareness Day on Sunday, April 27, 2008 at 1:00 p.m., with a special presentation and hands-on activity for the general public. Visitors will learn why hairballs develop in the stomach and will have an opportunity to handle an actual hairball. The Museum is located on the campus of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.


Why would anybody want to handle an actual hairball? Should I be inviting people over when my two "hairball machines" do their thing? *shudders*

What happened to the music players?

First the bad news:

To those of you who were enjoying the music players I had embedded in my blog, I'd like to apologize for removing them. I've been unsuccessfully trying to keep up with deleting all of the 30 second samplers of music from the songs that were not authorized to play the full version in the embedded players. I hate listening to a 30 second sample of a song and I'm betting that you don't like it any better than I do.

Now for the good news:

You can still listen to the players, but you will need to follow the links to my page over at Imeem.com. You will need an Imeem account, but it doesn't cost you anything to become a member. When you get over there, take a minute to familiarize yourself with the music players. You'll see that you have a lot more control over your listening experience than you did when you were listening here on my blog.

Here's the link to my Imeem page.

Please let me know if you've having trouble over there and I will try to help you.
