OTHER COOL THINGS is the blog page where I go off topic. In other words, this is a page where I ramble about a wide variety of subjects which have nothing to do with the Cross House restoration or Emporia.
OTHER COOL THINGS is where I might suggest a great new restaurant. Or a movie I enjoyed, or book. Or a favored blog.
OTHER COOL THINGS may — fasten your seat belt — open discussions about dangerous subjects such politics or religion.
OTHER COOL THINGS will, in short, be a page where I ramble about anything which captures my special attention. Like, perhaps, a nice moment I had with my favorite cat Gilda.
I love comments, so please do not hesitate to toss your two cents in, even if you disagree with me.
My blog posts are below. Enjoy!
A few weeks ago I posted about a very old, very injured stray cat I found in my yard. His left, rear leg was useless, and his right, rear leg was barely functioning. Something very bad had obviously happened, and the healed-over scar tissue on his legs was obvious. How he had managed to find…Continue Reading
Recently, I did a post about a stray cat with injured back legs. The left leg is useless. The cat can use the right leg but it is obviously an effort. I named the cat Limpy. The vet said it appeared to be tendon damage rather than broken bones. I asked if anything could be…Continue Reading
In 1992, a disastrous fire broke out at Windsor Castle, causing tens of millions in damage. A lot of people said it could not be rebuilt. But…it was. Under-budget and ahead of schedule. And with nary a cent of taxpayer monies. While people, understandably, focus on the royal family, what amazes me…and thrills me…is the…Continue Reading
So, y’all know that about three weeks ago I developed a blood clot in my left calf, which hugely swelled up. I was put on blood thinner (I keep wanting to write paint thinner), and the days passed. This past week my ankle and foot also swelled up, scarily. So, another trip to the emergency…Continue Reading
A year ago? Maybe more? That is when a cat came to my attention. While I will call him he, I have no idea of the cat’s gender. He was a gray/white shorthair. One night, late, I stepped into the backyard to get something from my vast storage shed where all my lights are stored….Continue Reading
A thing of late, is taking an image of somebody who died, say, a century ago and, with new computer technology, bringing them to…life. It is quite eerie and quite fascinating. Knowing that I am a huge Pete fan, somebody just sent me an example of the new technology on the, ahh, fun side. I…Continue Reading
This is a post about saving America. If interested, please scroll down. America was attacked by violent terrorists on January, 6. What happened shocked me. But, unlike 9/11, the terrorists were not from another country. The terrorists are American citizens. The terrorists are…Continue Reading
Y’all have only met Miss Asia once. She’s one of my yard kitties. She has spent her whole life in my fence yard, along with her siblings. But, of late, she enjoys sneaking into the house. I pretend not to notice. She can’t stay long inside as she has no idea of what a litter…Continue Reading
