Because of weather, we ended up doing a mini celebration with Booger. Afterwards, Lucy delivered treat bags to her doggy friends in the neighborhood once it stopped raining.
Bed bugs are more attracted to nicely made beds, because it's easier for them to move around. Folks, it's cleaner to leave your bed unmade.

I’ve been into music as long as I can remember, but until last fall I had never owned a vinyl record, let alone a turntable.
That all changed on my 40th birthday.
My wife thought (correctly, as it turned out) that some nostalgia might be in order to help me ease into a new decade. The question this raised in terms of the listening experience was whether old technology — circa 20th century — necessarily meant it was inferior to digital technology such as MP3s and CDs?
I posed the same question to Walter McKeever, who has taught for more than 10 years as an adjunct instructor of music and recording arts at Owens Community College, wondering if digital and analog technologies were all that different when it comes to the sound experience.
“For rock music, analog definitely has a certain sound,” McKeever said. “There’s just something about it. Somehow it has a little more depth.”
After a few months of listening in my basement, I could hear the difference for myself: a bigger, more vibrant sound from records versus CDs or download, but I wanted to be sure I wasn’t hearing things. CLICK HERE to read more from The Blade

I had a friend who once asked me whether I grew up in a naked family. I was confused by the question, so she explained that there were two types of families: naked and non-naked. Families that walk around nude with no problem and families who are always fully clothed. I replied that my family growing up was actually half and half. My mother was always running around naked, and my father was always clothed. While I lived with my parents, I was pretty much clothed, but nowadays? Naked.

At least 51 people - including at least 20 children -were killed when a massive tornado struck an area outside Oklahoma City on Monday afternoon, officials said.
Seven of those children were killed at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma, according to a police official.
Early Tuesday, emergency personnel continued to scour the school's rubble - a scene of twisted i-beams and crumbled cinder blocks.
The tornado was estimated to be at least 2 miles wide at one point as it moved through Moore, in the southern part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, KFOR reported. Video from CNN affiliates showed a funnel cloud stretching from the sky to the ground, kicking up debris.
