Bad cat food!

My two female cats have been witnessed throwing up. With the amount of vomit I have been cleaning, I suspect my male cat has been as well. The only thing that has changed is I bought another bag of Purina One- Indoor Formula cat food. This is what we normally feed them, but since this last bag (bought about 1 week ago from Walmart), my cats have started throwing up. With the recent recall in the Purina Beneful brand for dogs, I would not be surprised if other formulas have been effected.

We have immediately stopped feeding them this formula now that I have figured out what is causing them to be ill and know it is more than one cat. They got some tuna this morning and are really perked up. I will be getting a different brand of food for them today.

Please repost for other pet families so they know there might be contamination in more than just the Beneful... more »

You'll never convince me that media doesn't attempt to influence their target audience. If you only go off of what you hear in the news and don't try to figure out the truth, you will forever live uninformed about very important discussions and debates that LITERALLY could be life or death decisions for other people.

Refuge

I said I wasn’t going to say anything.

I said-I cannot-I will not-I should not.

When few care to listen to a view I find so simple.

Though I know terror is far from simple.

One thing that is simple to me is that children are d-r-o-w-n-i-n-g in hopes of a better life.

Drowning.

I’ve seen the photos of babies in their warm pajamas gone cold.

Their diapers as waterlogged as their lungs.

Some are orphans.

Some left behind families already grieving the loss of their home.

Now left to grieve their drowned children in their desperation to escape the horror.

Our country has its horrors too.

We have our own orphans.
We have our own homeless.
We have our own living in desperation.

But to say wecannot help.

Now left to grieve their drowned children in their desperation to escape the horror.

Our country has its horrors too.

We have our own orphans.
We have our own homeless.
We have our own living in desperation.

But to say we cannot help.

We will not help.

They are not our own.

Fills me with such disgust I could scream.

They are human.

They are survivors.

They need us.

If they did not they would not have risked it all.

Everything they had.

If you think we cannot care for them because we cannot care for ourselves:

DO.SOMETHING.

Help someone.-Anyone.-Here.

If you refuse to help anyone else.

If you value American suffering more than Syrian suffering.

If you value American suffering more than Mexican suffering.

If you value American suffering above all human suffering.

Stop your crying.

Help up a homeless veteran.

Look them in the eyes.

Lessen their suffering rather than posting on social media about how sick it makes you and how they deserve help but the Syrians don’t.

And yet you do nothing.

Volunteer.-Feed them.-Clothe them.-Bathe them.

Help them up.
Help them up.
Help them up.

If you will help no one else.

They deserve to be helped but not just because they are American.

Because they are people who suffer like we all do.

If you fear refugees being followed by terror:

Do not.

Terror is already here.

Every week since a man with a gun took the lives of 20 children from the safety of their schoolroom and 6 adults who loved them.

Shattering them.
Shattering their families.

We have our own terror everywhere.

And yet I refuse to be swayed by the possibility of more terror if it means 20,000 people could find hope and safety.

Here.

For the widows.
For the babies.
For the drowned.
For the blown up.
For the shot.
For the tortured.
For the torn human beings who seek refuge here.

Welcome.___

I need help, so here are my questions of the day!

I'm looking to change internet because I hate being bent over the table by Comcast...

1. Who is your internet provider?
2. What is you average internet speed with that provider?
3. Do you do any of the following:
--A. MMORPGs on PC (WoW, Aion, Rift, Start Wars, etc)
--B. Console gaming with online interaction
--C. Netflix streaming (HD??).
4. How is the performance of the above activities if you do them?

If you follow HONY and the recent trip documenting some of the terrifying events and tragedies the refugees across Europe have faced, you may have heard of the UNHCR. It helps provide water, food, and shelter to people all over the world. It's efforts have been recognized in many ways including earning them the Nobel Peace Price for their continued support of those in desperate need. It is truly loves they are saving. If you would like to donate, they now have a kickstarted campaign benefiting this organization. Please look, donate, share, whatever you fee comfortable doing.

I wanted to address some of the concerns of common core math. I know it is confusing and frustrating at first but it's actually a representation of how I have done math in my head for years. When I had to write out how I did math it confused the crap out of my teachers. One actually had a conference with my parents about how I don't explain it (I didn't talk enough in class!!) but always got the answer correct. All you would see are random numbers written down that didn't appear to make sense.

It is very confusing if you didn't see this in your head for years like I did, so it's very hard to explain. But it really is a simpler way of doing math once the concept is understood.

The easiest way I can try to explain to help those who need to help their kids:
It's counting to the nearest 10, 100, or 1000.

The easiest way I can try to explain to help those who need to help their kids:
It's counting to the nearest 10, 100, or 1000.

If you have 8+5, what you actually do is get that 8 into a 10 and see what's left. So 8+2=10, that means you took 2 from the 5, and have 3 left. 10+3 is easier to add than 8+5.

And I know it seems ridiculous to do it with such small numbers, because we all know it equals 13. BUT it's prep for bigger numbers:

56+67

Well 4 more gets me to 60, so that's 60+63 (56+4=60, 67-4=63)

40 more than that will get me to 100, so that's 100+23 (60+40=100, 63-40=23)

123 is your answer

100+23 is easier to add than 56+63. And as you get better at it, you can skip more steps or add higher numbers (for instance, when I got to 60+63, I know 60+60=120, plus the 3 left over)

Now let's get to something even bigger:

2014 + 1112 (Eldest picked these numbers for me- I think they are perfect)

I need 6 to get to 2020
2014+6=2020
1112-6=1106

I need 80 to get to 2100
2020+80=2100
1106-80=(now we can do it backwards)
-------------------
80-6=74 (now we have 1100- gives us an easier point for subtracting)
1100-4=1096 (now we have an even 70)
1096-70=1026 -------------------
Now back to where we were:
I need 900 to get to 3000
2100+900=3000
1026-900=?? -------------------
Well I know it's 100 from 900 to get to 1000, plus the 26 left over, so 100+26
------------------- 1026-900=126 3000+126=3126 2014+1112=3126 -----
I find this a lot easier to do in my head, and a lot easier than carrying ones and borrowing from 10s. I'd much rather add 10s together than to borrow from them.

I know the whole thing looks very daunting, but it's not that bad if you think of the reason why we took each step we did.

Let me know if you have questions on any one of these steps, I'd be happy to help!

I have seen several activists on Facebook and Twitter report with glee that, following the media outrage, Shkreli has "agreed" to lower the price of the drug.

Guys, we can't claim this as successful activism. We didn't do anything to change his mind. That was very likely his plan all along. Now that he's bought up all the stock he needed for his speculation while the price was low, he wants the price to go back up.

This is why we need to fight back against Wall Street. This type of speculation should be illegal. This goes beyond a single drug. The system is broken, and to fix it, we need to address the system as a whole.

Today is the last day to donate

Some perspective:

So his sister needed $300. He borrowed some of that and with interest, fees, and other bulls%%^ now owes them $9000. He only gets paid $2 for every 1000 brinks he makes. His family was sold for $22,000 (correct anything I messed up please- I want to accurately present this information).

All of the following information is speculation at this point but want to get it out there based on articles and posts I have read:

Calling all Etsy and other artists.

I just saw a local report on Hook Gallery in KC using artist paintings without their knowledge or permission for some of their classes or advertising. And not giving credit either.

You can see posts to the page on Facebook to see people call them out on it and possibly organizing a lawsuit.

Please share so artists' whose work has been used unlawfully, can become aware of the situation.

Thieves piss me off and it's even more upsetting that this may be happening in my city.

Also, I'm aware this may be going around or had been for a couple months among the artist communities. However, I am not a part of those so I don't know for sure. I just wanted to make surep... more »

Hate that I am having to do this, but am selling my One Direction tickets for July 28th at Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City). There are 3 tickets total. Section 136, row 7, Seats 23, 24, and 25. I have them listed for sale through Ticket Master (you can find them in the search- apparently I have mine listed low compared to others who are reselling them). I do have them listed high on there, but am willing to sell cheaper with PayPal (I can transfer the tickets to your TicketMaster account if this is the case).

Let me know if interested.

Note: The tickets were for my daughter. She was warned not to do something or she would lose the tickets. She did it. She's lost them.?

Ok Googlers. Questions for you all. Yesterday I was working pretty hard on the house. Nothing that really would be considered too hard or dangerous (that's what my husband did) but there was a lot of stretching and pulling and yanking- so upper body usage (pulled down walls and boards and paneling).

By the end of the evening I had developed a horrible pain in my upper left shoulder area. It felt so stiff i would equate it to being able to have the movements of someone in a full headgear back brace.

I spent some hot-cold time on it and relaxed in a hot shower, and I have a bit more movement back, but not much. Ibuprofen did nothing, and Tylenol extra strength did nothing. And I barely take these things so usually 400mg ibuprofen OR 500mg Tylenol will take care of any pain I have, at least long enough to sleep. But last night, 600mg ibuprofen did not even dent the pain. And 1000mg of... more »

But last night, 600mg ibuprofen did not even dent the pain. And 1000mg of Tylenol (about 3 hours later) was enough that I could sleep but any movement, still very painful.

Waking up this morning, still very painful and limited movements. The pain is localized to the upper left shoulder blade, radiates into the back of my head and down the middle of my back (only a little) and when I move, depending on which way, it will stretch across my back and down in a bit of a numbing sensation.

So here are my questions:

what did I do?
And how do I make it better?

Note: the pain originally started across both shoulders. After my hot-cold treatment and shower, my right side feels much better.

I have a lot more work to do on the house today and I can't do any lifting right now which puts a big damper on things.___

I can't seem to share/love this enough! A whole new world can open up to you if you spend time thinking about the world others live in as well. Because let's face it, the world is what we perceive, and we don't always know or understand how others perceive the world, which is always different from how you do. And this is just a small glimpse into the perceived world from someone who doesn't get a chance to express it in ways others do. What a wonderful insight. I'm very thankful to have read this.

It is deeply gratifying to me to see someone who cannot communicate verbally be able to reach out and tell everyone what others like him can't.___I can't seem to share/love this enough!

I'm sooooooo tired! And my week was starting off bad. But then my hubby sent a showering of love my way, so I'm feeling quite a bit better.

Starting the week out about 2 hours behind on work from last week, and then add another hour because I made it all the way to work without my laptop, I was feeling a bit dreadful.

Im so thankful for such sweet sentiments from Hubby.

Bad cat food!

My two female cats have been witnessed throwing up. With the amount of vomit I have been cleaning, I suspect my male cat has been as well. The only thing that has changed is I bought another bag of Purina One- Indoor Formula cat food. This is what we normally feed them, but since this last bag (bought about 1 week ago from Walmart), my cats have started throwing up. With the recent recall in the Purina Beneful brand for dogs, I would not be surprised if other formulas have been effected.

We have immediately stopped feeding them this formula now that I have figured out what is causing them to be ill and know it is more than one cat. They got some tuna this morning and are really perked up. I will be getting a different brand of food for them today.

Please repost for other pet families so they know there might be contamination in more than just the Beneful... more »

Just as a reminder, this upcoming Saturday is the 9th. Which means Nerdy 9th.

What is Nerdy 9th, you ask? (We're pretending you asked. It makes it less awkward when I keep talking.)

The idea behind the Nerdy 9th is that we're setting aside one day of the month for completely unvarnished and unqualified love and enthusiasm for our nerdoms/geekdoms/fandoms. 

From midnight to midnight, your local time, whenever you talk about geeky stuff online (or just on G+) you make a conscious effort to only share the positive stuff. When somebody else talks about stuff they love, you only share positive stuff with them too.

Why do we need a day for this, you ask? (Man, hypothetical reader, you are inquisitive!)

Why do we need a day for this, you ask? (Man, hypothetical reader, you are inquisitive!) 

We need a day for this because, in my opinion, nerd culture is too invested in the things we don't like and in criticism than in the passions and loves that make us nerds in the first place. Critique is valuable! But it shouldn't be the only line of discussion we have. Once in a while (every 30 days, on average), it's good to just let ourselves be fans. 

To love the things we love without reserve and to refrain from raining on anybody's parade when they talk about the things they love.

And that's Nerdy 9th. It's happening this Saturday, May 9th, 2015 and I'd love for all of you to join with me in celebrating our nerdy passions. Show us what you love. We'll do the same. We may even pick up new favorite things from one another!

Feel free to chime in on the 9th or even the 8th or 11th, if you don't post on weekends. The spirit counts more than the day. If you want to share this post and boost the signal, you can. If you'd like to tag your posts on the day with #nerdy9th , you can. 

But the only real rule is this: No hate and no debate for 24 hours.

I hope to see your posts this Nerdy 9th! ___

Sorry for the quality- was sent to us by a client. Apparently with Time Warner Cable, if you're using their DNS (and possible some other factors) they can basically turn off your internet access asking you to upgrade your services and modem for faster speeds. Rebooting did NOT resolve the issue (as is mentioned on another page they direct you to). We had to CALL Time Warner and ask that they allow regular DNS to work properly for this client on their BUSINESS account.

Why Time Warner thinks for one second that it is ok to turn off ANYONE's internet (aka disrupting DNS services) that they PAY FOR, just for a "new promotional ad" is absolutely ridiculous and unprofessional, imo.

Note: I'm not sure if, at this time, clicking the continue button works. We did NOT have our client click on it until we called the support number we have for TWC (not the one on the page)... more »

Question of the morning:

TL:DR - to fish or not to fish?

Do I get up now (6am) on a Sunday so I can go clean my kitchen? If I clean my kitchen than I'm going fishing today.

If I don't get it done before 7am then I'm spending the day cleaning and chillaxin' (the youngsters still say that, right)?

He asked if I was ready to go spend $60 on a drill bit... I, of course, said no. But I think having to try to sharpen it for a third time, means this one's done for. :p

Happy Horseys :D

Tonka, who came to us skinny, and quickly became one of our most reliable, beloved therapy horses.

(Skip to the end to help me help my sweet horse friends.)


Spending time at the stables has brought a lot of joy into my life. Every time I'm there I witness acts of generosity:

I've seen unpaid volunteers anonymously pay for therapy sessions for kids whose parents can't afford it.

Last winter I saw kids show up with their piggy banks to help us through an awful, expensive, program-wide horse quarantine that could have shut us down.

A brand new volunteer with no deep allegiance to our program walked in and started brainstorming: "what could we use in the volunteer lounge - kleenex, snacks?" as if it were a given that of course she would provide supplies to improve the days of people she barely even knew.

I suspect that many lessons are priced on an extremely sliding scale. Every insurance situation is different and sometimes it doesn't cover these kids' time with us at all. One rider's family can only afford one half-hour session per week, which isn't really enough, so week after week we "run late." The kid gets a full hour, the instructor and assistants donate their time, and nobody even acknowledges that anything unusual is happening.

And of course I'm constantly humbled by the willingness of longtime horse professionals to teach me anything I ask, which is a lot. I came in with zero horse experience but have been treated like I belonged from day one.


I talk about it too much; I get a bit evangelical. It's hard not to, with a place that both requires and generates so much compassion. We give therapy to children whose bodies are damaged or failing, or who have experienced great trauma. I get to see these fragile kids getting stronger week by week as they whoop and wave from the top of a horse. No matter how imperfect the body, the rider is the tallest person there.

These things are possible because we also give older, retired, or rescued horses a home and a job. They are sweet, affectionate creatures with lots of life left in them, they've just gotten a bit too old or slow to do what their first career demanded: police horse, competitive jumper. And sometimes they come to us hungry, sick, hairless, with burrs and filth. We fix them up and give them a comfy stall, more hay than they know what to do with, and head scratches every day of their lives. It is a perfect system.


Occasionally someone online asks what they can do to help. We are a nonprofit and horse upkeep is spectacularly expensive, so we rely on donors, large and small. I'm working on coordinating a proper Amazon wishlist with someone who knows more about saddles and gear, but in the meantime I've set up a list of smaller stuff that we always need, ranging from $4 to $30.

If anything I post here resonates with you, and you'd like to help, I can promise that the smallest donation is hugely appreciated, will help us keep running, and frankly will make the work a bit easier for my coworkers and me. I am damn serious about the $4 hoof picks and may just buy a dozen myself, because those things vanish. If you ever wanted an excuse to buy a currycomb, this is your moment!  And if you pick the treats I promise to post SO MANY photos of horses eating them.

Thank you for reading. I promise to keep posts like this to a minimum, but I would be a fool if I didn't do my best to help keep this incredible program going. I don't think I've ever been a part of something that adds this much kindness to the world. I would love for this wishlist to be a way for you to be a part of it too.
