Thought you'd like to see my champion 'Asparagus Cake'.

This was my fair entry this year. I adapted sweetpolitica's asparagus cake by making my ribbon from fondant.

A roaming dog just killed my cat, Dubya. Dubs was asleep on my back porch.

He never had a chance. The dog just bit him through the throat and killed him instantly.

Dubya showed up at my house over 10 years ago as a starving homeless beggar. He was eating styrofoam meat trays I had put into a dog food bag on my back porch. I called Animal Services who came and chased him around with a net. Finally, I told them to go and I'd take care of him. He stayed and became my own 'grumpy cat'. I rarely was able to touch him. His home became an extra large dog kennel sitting on my porch. I spent $6000 to enclose it and put out a heat lamp during winter to keep him warm. He ate 3 meals a day and never went 50 feet from that porch. I could hardly get him to take to the vet and probably only got to pet him a couple of dozen times over the years. But I loved him and will miss him.

What a shame somebody let their dog run free.

Here's a quote from 1850 about what's happening today....

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.

This one used to dance with me on his hind legs. Died suddenly in 2004

from hemangiosarcoma at the age of 8.

Want to see what my house looked like about 130 years ago?

This was it in 2012, when we were repainting.

I've got to get a picture of it from the same angle and upload to photobucket!

My letter to Tom, aka Traitor, Cotton.

Dear Senator Cotton,

You have once again proven you are utterly unsuited to be in the US Senate. Your lack of knowledge of protocol and conduct has now been exposed to the rest of the world. You are an embarrassment to Arkansas. I really hope you get a ton of contributions from your Koch friends in the defense industry for attempting to provoke another useless, budget-busting war in the Middle East.
