    The festive event is described as a day full of Mexican culture with authentic food and music, colorful folk dancing, free games and prizes for children and a 50-50 raffle.

    We all do it. We do it every time we change the litter or hear the call of compacted clay being clawed. I’m talking about inspecting our cat’s stools. We humans are inexplicably interested in monitoring our companion animal’s eliminations. And that’s a good thing. Identifying a bathroom problem early can prevent more serious complications and restore health to an ailing kitty.

  •       Graduation time looms large across the nation. Senior year students in high schools, colleges, universities are embroiled in the departure/arrival moments, with all the mixed emotions involved. Applications have been filed, received, and returned with news of acceptance … or not. A sense of finality tinges the excitement of new beginnings with unease, if not sadness. Holding on is as an impelling force as letting go.
