It’s that time of year, time to go through my sites, and get rid of erroneous material, for example; I’ll be going back a few years and deleting a lot of my pix in these posts. I usually leave up to the one year before, and there a few others that I keep the pix with. But yeah.  This is the precursor to me spring cleaning the house! lol start small, and then go large! 😀

Your “Cat-ability” Score

1 Comment

*Just for fun*
cat-n-counter
Is your devotion to your cat and “cat things” in the training stage, at a moderate level, or extreme? Or are you an all out shameless “cat-a- holic?” Let’s just see how you rate as a “cat person,” shall we? See how many of these can you give an HONEST “yes” answer to:
–Can you meow so well that you can fake out your cats?
–Have you ever called your husband/wife by the cat’s name by mistake?
–Do you think of your cats as the “furry kids?”
–Did you ever decide to buy a house or rent an apartment based solely on the potential spot for the litterbox?
–Do you think cat hair in your food is a good source of protein?
–Last Christmas/Hanukkah, did you spend more money on cat toys than you did on gifts for the kids or grandkids?
–Are you at a loss as to how to talk to people who don’t own any cats?
–Does your wallet contain more photos of your cats than your kids or grandkids?
–Have you often slept on the very edge of the bed so that you won’t disturb the cat who’s sleeping in the very middle?
–Do you leave messages for the kitty on the answering machine?
–Have you ever invited a guest to sit down by patting the seat and making that noise with your pursed lips?
–Does your answering machine have the cat meowing on the outgoing message?
–When you go to the bathroom do you think of it as “using the litterbox”?
–Have you made a habit of setting a place at the table for the kitty?
–Do you know your cat’s birthday (or if not, have made a good guess) and have a birthday party to celebrate?
–When your husband/wife gives you the ultimatum, “OK, it’s me or the cat,” you don’t hesitate for even one second.
–Do your neighbors talk about you as “the nut with all the cats?”
How many did you answer “yes” to? I think just answering one with a “yes” is enough to qualify you as a “Cat Person.” But the number of yes answers determines the degree.
Your “Cat-ability” Score”
–1 to 4 yes answers: In training – you could do better, but it’s OK, you’re learning.
–5 to 8 yes answers: Moderate – working on it, improving nicely. Potential is there.
–9 to 13 yes answers: Extreme – just about there, almost mastered the art. Keep stretching yourself.
–14 to 17 yes answers: Totally possessed, hopelessly devoted, cat-a-holic. Congratulations! (But you’ll find no 12 step program here!)

Calendar day; February 16, 2015

Leave a comment

Monday, the 16th of February, 2015. The day is the 47th day in 2015 and in the 8th calendar week.
General Events:
Family Day 2015
February 16, 2015 in Canada
Family Day is observed in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Ontario and Saskatchewan on the third Monday of February. In British Columbia, Family Day falls on the second Monday of February. This holiday celebrates the importance of families and family life to people and their communities.
Family Day was first held in Canada in the province of Alberta in 1990. It is supposed to reflect the values of family and home that were important to the pioneers who founded Alberta, and give workers the opportunity to spend more time with their families. Family Day was introduced in Saskatchewan in 2007 and in Ontario in 2008. British Columbia observes Family Day as a statutory holiday for the first time in 2013. One of the reasons for introducing Family Day was that there was a long period when there were no holidays from New Year’s Day until Good Friday.
In the other provinces and territories of Canada, Family Day is not observed, and neither the third nor the second Monday in February are holidays there.

Rose Monday 2015
February 16, 2015 in Germany
Rose Monday – also known as Rosenmontag – takes place on February 16, 2015. It is the highlight of the German “Karneval” (carnival), and is on the Shrove Monday before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. The “Mardi Gras,” though celebrated on Tuesday, is a similar event. Rosenmontag is celebrated in German-speaking countries, including Germany, East Belgium, Austria, and Switzerland, but most heavily in the “Hochburgen” (carnival strongholds), which include the Rhineland, especially in Cologne, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Aachen and Mainz.
Celebrations usually include dressing up in fancy costumes, dancing, parades, heavy drinking and general public displays with floats. Every town in the Karneval areas boasts at least one parade with floats making fun of the themes of the day. Usually sweets (“Kamelle”) are thrown into the crowds lining the streets among cries of “Helau” or “Alaaf”, whereby the cry “Kölle Alaaf” is only applied in the Cologne area, meaning “Cologne over all”. The celebrations become quieter the next day, known as Veilchendienstag (“Violet Tuesday“, Shrove Tuesday), and end with “Aschermittwoch” (AshWednesday).
Carnival is not a national holiday in Germany, but schools are closed on Rosenmontag and the following Tuesday in the strongholds and many other areas. Many schools as well as companies tend to give teachers, pupils and employees the Thursday before Rosenmontag off as well and have celebrations in school or in the working place on Weiberfastnacht, although every now and then there are efforts to cut these free holidays in some companies.

Do a Grouch a Favor Day
February 16, 2015 in the World
Do a Grouch a Favor today. Do it and make the world a better place.
Everyone has been a grouch at one time or another. Some people are seemingly grouches all of the time. It’s in their nature. Others are occasional grouches, influenced by events in their lives, lack of sleep, the weather, etc. A few people are good at disguising their grouchy mood. But, they still need cheering up.
 Look around for someone who is in a grouchy mood today. Then, do him or her a favor that will cheer up their day. There’s plenty of grouches out there to practice on. Try it on all of the grouches that you see today, and watch the results!

National Almond Day
February 16, 2015 in the USA
Did you know that almonds are one of the most heart-healthy foods on the market? These delicious and wholesome nuts are full of vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber, and can help lower cholesterol.
The almond tree is native to the Middle East and South Asia. It produces a fleshy green fruit similar to a peach or apricot. At the center of this fruit is a stone-like seed, which is the almond nut. Today, the state of California produces 80% of the world’s supply of almonds. It takes more then 1.2 million beehives to pollinate all of the crops!
Whether you prefer to enjoy them plain, roasted, or paired with chocolate, celebrate National Almond Day with a handful of delicious almonds!
