Pork chops

  This is truly amazing …

“In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother’s cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the sad news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment.

Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans’ that could be found quickly were a littler of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.

Would they become cubs or pork chops?

Take a look…you won’t believe your eyes!!”


Isn’t that incredible? LOVE their outfits =)

I love my cats

But I hate it when they do this …

I watched this with morbid interest from my (rather dirty) window just a few minutes ago – the little terror was having a ball playing with his fresh kill! Oh well, at least this poor pigeon didn’t land up inside the house like they normally do. No blood and feathers to clean up today, thank goodness.

The busy zombie

I got new sleeping pills yesterday. I was really hoping that these new tabs wouldn’t have the usual effect of making me feel completely knackered the next day but alas, I am definitely zombified today …. Oh well, at least I managed to get some sleep for a change – I only woke up once in the night – and when the tablet wears off I should be feeling much more refreshed.

Today is a busy day – I have a meeting just now with a prospective new client. She’s an image consultant so I’ve made a special effort to dress nicely. I’m hoping the chat goes well as I’d really like to do her new website. I’m very picky about the work I choose to do and this is a project that’s grabbed my attention. It’s something different and it’s quite girly, which I like =)

Then I have to go to the vet and pick up anti flea stuff and deworming tabs for all the animals which is going to set me back a bit but I have to do it. I couldn’t really afford it last month and the poor things are suffering a bit.

I have loads of admin to do, phone calls to make, quotes to send out and things to organize in the (home) office. That’s the part of my job I hate. Running my own business is cool in many ways but I don’t really get to do what I love most anymore – the actual designing and programming – I spend most of my time “steering the ship”, managing my team, sorting out accounts, tons of paperwork, all that stuff ….. But, I mustn’t complain! This business is my lifeline, I’d be totally screwed without it and I’m very grateful to have my own source of income, especially after my recent divorce (more about that later ….).

I’m not sure if I am going to have time to go to the gym today, perhaps I’ll just jump on my Health Walker here at home tonight for a half hour or so.
