Between “No Good Deed” and “The Guest,” September is really shaping up to be the month of home invasion/sleeping with the enemy movies. What makes “The Guest” much more interesting that other film, however, is that it’s not entirely clear if the home invader wants to be the homeowner’s friend or enemy. At some point in our lives, we’ve all had somebody we’ve wanted to get rid of, be it a school bully, sleazy boyfriend or boss. You might wish for a dark guardian angel to come to your rescue and take care of the person ruining your life. In the event that dark guardian actually did appear, though, would you be more relieved or horrified? On top of that, would you call the cops on this guy or let him do your dirty work?
Recently, I woke up at 4 a.m. and drove to Oracle to welcome the refugee children who fled their country to escape poverty, violence, terror and murder. My purpose was simple and clear — I was concerned about the welfare and treatment of these innocent children. When I arrived, I was joined by 150 like-minded persons who came together to peacefully show compassion and respect for the rights of these victims whose countries were in terrible conditions. These conditions were caused by bad decisions made by adults.

1. Placing the litter box, food, and water in the same location. We wouldn’t want the bathroom to be incorporated into the kitchen and neither do our cats. Cats are fastidious animals and generally prefer to eliminate far from where they eat and drink. If they must be located in the same room, be sure they are on opposite sides of the room.

NO! Tell this message to Pulte and Mr. Gee. Remember, these guys are NOT our friends. They are not trying to “work with us.” They are rolling right over us. They have meetings filled with convenient conversations. This is like petting your cow just before butchering it. NO! I have been around these travesties before and years afterward neighbors are shrugging their shoulders saying, “Gee, we got taken again.” Don’t let it happen to us. They cannot promise a density of homes in our golf fairways until they get final permission from the Phoenix Planning and Zoning Commission.

Eli, a gorgeous 2-year-old, long-haired tuxedo cat is looking for a new home. He is a very calm and quite cat who likes to find a great perch from which he can watch the world go by. His favorite position is to be laying next to you to receive bully rubs and brushing. At the PetSmart cat center, he enjoys the attention of volunteers by sitting with them and occasionally playing with toys. When in the mood, he plays like a kitten. He is good with other quiet cats and maybe dogs.

There’s a proverb that says if you love something, let it go. If it returns, it’s yours. If not, well, it never belonged to you in the first place. But had my son Braden written that proverb it would go more like this: “If you love something and it won’t cooperate, stomp the guts out of it.”
When thinking of school sports, the usual come to mind: football, basketball, and baseball. But there is another sport that is starting to gain some traction, and it has made its way into the high school ranks:
Despite being a non-fan of writer/director/actor/comedian, Seth MacFarlane (the “brains” behind such farcical fare as Family Guy and Ted), I still had high hopes for his latest project, A Million Ways to Die in the West. I love westerns and the genre is pretty easy pickins when it comes to laughs, but unfortunately MacFarlane scrapes most his material from the bottom of the comedic bucket.
