We've created a monster.. porch kitty update.. pic heavy

So previously we couldn't get close enough to even touch him. After working on getting him used to us being around and getting close, we finally were able to just do a quick touch on the head or back, just something to let him know we were harmless. Well now we can pet and pick him up, he comes in and stays for hours before wanting back out. BUT .. he so likes the human touch and being petted he insists on it constantly.. lol.. whether he likes it or not, I think he is domesticated.












and of course we can't forget our meatloaf..




OK all of you car guys/gals out there, I have a question...

My daughter drives a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee with over 200,000 mile. It's been pretty reliable except of late. It seems the positive post on the battery keeps oxidizing, quite rapidly. She was at a restaurant here in town last week and called to say it wouldn't start, her dad and I went in the check it out. It needed the posts cleaned, started right up then. Yesterday she tried to go to work, wouldn't start again. Dad went out to check and the positive post was all black again, in only a week. The negative post was still bright and shiny.
Now my question(s).. what could be causing it to oxidize so rapidly and what can be done to remedy it?

Thanks to anyone and everyone with help/suggestions

WOO HOO ... gotta share...

My daughter just found out she passed the test, she is now a state certified EMT


Edited to say.. oops I was just admonished, she is Nationally certified.

1 year ago today... update

I had my weight loss surgery. Today I am happy (ecstatic really) to announce, I am down 122 pounds and went from a size 26 to a size 12. I feel wonderful!!!!!!


Edited to add..just returned from my 1 year check up and all my labs came back "text book perfect".

Today's my birthday....

If everything keeps going the way it has today, turning 60 won't be so bad!

Thanks Obama....

My daughter, 29, just had her first physical since she was in high school and still on our insurance. She is having testing, was written a script for asthma and all this didn't cost her a dime, medicaid paid everything even the script.

My two fur babies...

Khaos aka meatloaf



Loki aka porch kitty, hello kitty

WOOHOO...porch kitty survived!...

This is one smart cat! The day the storm started I went out and made sure there was a huge bowl of food, to last out the storm. He was there, ate and left. Today was the first we've seen him since. His box was empty later the same day and ever since. This morning we noticed kitty tracks around the deck so we cleaned all the snow off the deck and wasn't but about 15 minutes, he was back! Where ever he rode out the storm, he found a good, warm spot. Now to get him fattened up again.

My weight loss journey...

Some here will recall, I had weight loss surgery on April 1 of this past year. My progress has been simply amazing, to me anyway..lol. My first self imposed goal was to get out of plus sized clothes...check. Number two was to lose 100 pounds...check. My third goal was to get under 200 pounds..as of this morning.. CHECK!!!!
I was hoping to get there by New Years, but heck less than a week off, I'll take it. As of today I've lost 115 pounds and feel great!
I haven't yet decided whether to set any more goals or just go with the flow from here on out, I don't want to set myself up for failure after coming so far. I just had to tell everyone. I AM SO HAPPY!!!
