A warning to keep plastic bags away from your pets.


I didn't want to make a big deal of it when it first happened because it hurt too much but about six weeks ago I lost my best road trip buddy and friend Maggie when she suffocated on a cat food bag while I was at work. I'm posting this now not for attention or to garner sympathy but as a warning. Every day someone loses a beloved pet due to suffocation. Everyone knows to keep plastic bags away from babies and little kids but I never thought they were a danger to our pets. I learned the hardest way. I lost Maggie to a Science Diet cat food bag that I thought was stored out of her reach, three feet off the floor. It was too much of a temptation and it cost her life. Please don't let this happen to your darling fur babies. Check out the link posted here to see how you can prevent this from happening to you. I'll always have Maggie in my heart. I can never forget how she was the one with me day and night, always happy, through some of the hardest days of my life. I miss her every day.


So......I've moved to Georgia.....anyone here from Tucker?

Followed my honey who's in the movie/TV production biz.

We have a contract on a house in Tucker. I commute to the Old Fourth Ward to work.

Anything we should know before we move forward?

Cancer took Daddy tonight after a mercifully quick and painless six weeks. I feel like someone pushed me off a cliff.

Meet Our Study’s Newest Mountain Lion Kittens!


Evybudee sez "SQUEE"

Our newest research subjects are two spotted mountain lion kittens between the ages of three and four weeks old. P-43 and P-44, as the two are known, are from two separate litters on opposite ends of our study area.

P-43 is a young female found in a remote area of the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu Creek State Park. We've been following her mom, P-23, since she was three weeks old and this is her second litter of kittens. P-23 gained fame a few years back when a motorcyclist spotted her early one morning on top of a deer on Mulholland Highway.

The image below gives you a sense of what these moms are looking for in a den. Many of mom's GPS points are localized in one small area for the first three weeks after she gives birth (which is how researchers know she might have a litter), so our biologist, Jeff Sikich, has a GPS device in hand as he tries to track down the den location.

Juana Maria Better-than-Nothing: The Strange Tale of the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island

It was 1853 on San Nicolas Island, the most remote of California's eight Channel Islands. Sixty-five miles southwest of Point Mugu, in Ventura County, one visitor reported the island's "shifting sand dunes, its 90-foot fog shrouded peak, its deep cut canyons, its bleak cliffs and the crashing seas breaking over its rocky shores" made it "just about one of the most desolate places on earth." This isolated isle had once been home to a thriving group of native people known as the Nicolenos. Now it was supposedly uninhabited, though sailors sailing by occasionally reported seeing a human figure waving her arms, running towards them on the foggy shore. In 1853, Captain George Nidever set out on his third trip in search of this legendary apparition.
