Purina Treats

Check out the Purina Treats website! There's a website for each of the Purina Treats brands - Whisker Lickins', Aquari-yums, Beggin', T-Bonz, Busy Bone, Chew-rific, Chew-eez and Appawtizers - and each website has info about that particular brand (obviously) and then it also has horoscopes for cats and dogs, and screensavers and computer desktop wallpapers that you can download (I made those so make sure to check them out!)

Birds & the Bees at the ZOO

What a weekend!

The family (minus Cassy) came in on Saturday afternoon for the Greater St. Louis Band Festival and watched Hickman take fourth place in the silver division (congrats to the HHS band!).

Then on Sunday we went to church at St. Ann's, lunch at IHOP and then drove by the ol' Manhassett Village to see the building torn down. After that we went to the zoo. It is so funny how all animals act similar. We saw the sea lions with the same look as Fipsy waiting for their treats, a chimp sitting at the very highest spot he possibly could (just like the Fipster who has been trying to climb from the castle in the bedroom onto the windowsill because he likes to sit up high. He runs around the room looking up to try to figure out how he can get to the high as he can.)

And last but not least, the black bear was making sure all systems were working, just like Fipsy does on a regular basis. Yes the bear in the picture is doing what you think he's doing!

Six Flags

So I went to Six Flags with Angie yesterday. We spent 10 hours there (minus an hour for dinner) and got on 9 rides: Scrambler, Scooby Doo Ride, Mr. Freeze, The Boss, The Ninga, The Boss (again), Highland Fling, Batman, and the Mine Train.

The place was really crowded, we waited an hour and 25 minutes to get on Batman. Then we waited 45 minutes for the Screaming Eagle, and we were the next in line to get on when they had to close the ride because of a "malfunction".

My two favorite rides at Six Flags St. Louis are Batman and The Boss, so I'm glad that we got to go on both of those. Our Six Flags is such an old park, I wish they'd have fixed up the amusement park part instead of building the waterpark. Or done like Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun and had a separate admission price for each and a discounted price if you bought a ticket for both. That was you're not spending $41+ to get in during the summer and only doing half the park.

Watch Star Purrsonalities in L.A.

The last stop on the Tidy Cat adventure is now posted! Check out Star Purrsonalities in LA! I'm telling don't want to miss this one! Roscoe entertains everyone during rush hour (which is every hour in LA!) and Zinger gets silly!

I love Fipsy!

Fipsy loves his castle!

Gift Registry

Tom and I picked out our china for our wedding gift registry yesterday. We chose the "Aegean Mist" set (see picture). It is so cool, I never thought much about china before but now I really hope that we get it!

Stop Eminent Domain Abuse in Manchester!

If you know anything about Manchester road you know that it is packed with cars, lined with shops and a pain in the butt when you're in a hurry. It has nearly every established chain discount store there is - wal-mart, home depot, sams, lowes, target - as well as many small private individually owned businesses.

One particular corner, Manchester Rd. and hwy 141, is home to a Saturn car dealer, printing company and photographer. The city of manchester has decided that this isn't a good enough use of the property and want to use eminent domain to force these business owners out in order to give the land to another business owner. How does that make sense? Why is the other business better than the ones that are already established? And why does Manchester Rd. need another big box discount chain?

What can you do? Well for starters you can visit to find out more about the issue, sign a petition and email the aldermen for the area.
