Latest scams

(from somewhere on the Internet)

Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car.  Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it.  So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener.  This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

2. GPS:
Someone had their car broken into while t hey were at a football game.  Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans.  Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.  When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.  Read more

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic

Standard wheat harvest protocol in the US is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields [because] withered, dead wheat plants are less taxing on the farm equipment and allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest

Sad news.  He was one of the greats.  We saw him in retirement at Kentucky Horse Park several years ago.

Guess who foals first

We bred two of our standardbred mares to a Gypsy last October, and now we are spending all our nights waiting for their arrival.  We will need some names.  “R Bad Girl” is one mare, and “Linear” is the other.  The name of the stud is “Cowboy.”

Guess who foals first, with the hour and day.  The due date was September 30th, so it can happen at any moment!!

One too many cats

I was up a little earlier than usual this morning, which apparently surprised one of the cats in our house.  The thing is, we only have one cat.  Any more than that is too many.  This one — either a stray or just one of the neighbor’s cats, I don’t know; either way, it’s apparently our cat’s buddy — was just coming out of my bathroom where we keep the cat food, and I was just coming out of my bedroom.  It saw me and casually strolled back into the bathroom.  It probably then thought better of that move, fearing I was headed toward the bathroom myself — you know, to get some of that tasty cat food for myself — so it came back out and took off running past me toward the back pet door.  The only problem is that dogs and cats just can’t get any traction on our hardwood floors, so it was slipping and flopping as it tried to run as fast as it could.

It made it past me and out the pet door without a problem, probably because I just stood there, half asleep and half amused at what I was seeing.  I couldn’t see much this whole time because the house was almost completely dark except for the light from the master bathroom nightlight behind me and the nightlight in the “cat food” bathroom ahead of me.  So, I wasn’t entirely sure that wasn’t just our cat, Sunny.  It was only after I went into the kitchen to make coffee and turned on the overhead light that I saw Sunny sitting there alternately looking at me, then the pet door, as if to say, “Did you see that?!  There was another cat in the house!”

As if she didn’t already know that!  :)  I’m just chalking it up to life’s way of preparing me for when my little girl starts bringing home unwanted boyfriends who will probably also want to eat my food.

Mighty Broccoli Sprouts Rapidly Detox Pollutants

The drink used in the China study was made with broccoli sprouts developed by researchers at Johns Hopkins University.  They are sold under the brand name BroccoSprouts. They are widely available in supermarkets or you can sprout your own from seeds.

Broccoli sprouts can be eaten raw.  They are great on sandwiches, in wraps or as a salad topping.  You can also add some to smoothies.

And try serving them with broccoli.  Studies show combining the two makes the anti-cancer effect almost twice as powerful.

We’re Better Than We Think We Are

… it’s worth noting that the Bible’s 82nd Psalm says something that many people find shockingly un-Biblical:  You are gods.

Or, at least “god-like,” depending on translation, via We’re Better Than We Think We Are | Casey Research

Anyway, I’ve always agreed with the article title.  :)
