The holidays are a wonderful and fun time to go shopping. But, while you are out buying presents for your family members, especially the kids, it is important to read the warning labels for age-appropriate toys, small parts, and other things that may be harmful. This also includes the noise level that a toy registers.
It’s no secret that men like Keith Richards, John Lennon and Frank Sinatra are the first to be mentioned when talking about the evolution of music. But what about women like Joan Jett and Tina Turner, who are equally responsible for putting rock and roll on the map?
Perhaps no vocal group in America – other than the Beach Boys – have been as celebrated as The Manhattan Transfer. Over the last four decades, the quartet has racked up a dozen Grammy Awards, sold millions of albums and made Grammy Award history in 1981 when they became the first group in both pop and jazz categories in the same year.
Sali loves laps and will sit in yours for hours. She loves to go for walks. She is a very young Terrier and will need a bit of guidance.

Even my own mother scoffed at the idea of her obviously European-looking daughter confessing she celebrated Día De Los Muertos.
The obsession began somewhere around the same time I got my first pair of Underoos.

As far as scripts go for a swan song, they don’t get much better than the one Mountain Pointe seniors Kiyoko Hashimoto and Vi Koka delivered in the 2013 badminton singles state championship.
Believe me, I’m psyched that you have picked up running in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and even 60s because I think it’s an awesome sport with so many social, physical and emotional benefits. But I have to tell you people, there’s a segment of you out there who need to be more pragmatic in your approach to running.
Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” just might have the most horrifying premise in all of movies. There are several other strong contenders like “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds was trapped in a coffin underground, and “127 Hours,” where James Franco was stuck between a rock and a hard place. But honestly, what’s scarier than being stranded in space with limited air and no communication with Earth? Going to outer space is in itself a fairly scary thought. The notion of anything going wrong up there is the worst nightmare imaginable. As the tagline to “Alien” says, in space no one can hear you scream.
The Canadian award-winning artist buzzed in ears all over the world with “Call Me Maybe” and duet with Owl City “Good Time.” The 27-year-old has won three Juno Awards, two Grammy Award nominations and was named Billboard’s Rising Star of 2012.
Scottie was abandoned at a vet’s office by his owner. He’s a very laid back cat, likes to sit up high on cabinets and survey his surroundings in the lobby of the vet’s office greeting patients and furry friends arriving for appointments. He also prefers to sleep in his own bed all curled up. He is not high energy but would like a lap or couch to sit on. He has long fur so will need regular grooming. Scottie seems to get along with everyone and is not scared of noises or people. His ears are crimped so it looks like a “Scottish Fold.” Due to a severe ear infection one ear will stay more crimped up than the other. He does not seem to mind that his ears aren’t long and pointy. He likes toys and will play, which will help him to be more active. He has been around other cats and dogs.

Recently while traveling, I had a brief but truly uplifting experience.
What a cute face this little guy has and a smile that goes from ear to ear. Rascal is a bit shy when he first meets you, but warms up quickly and before you know it his tail is wagging and that wonderful smile appears on his face. He loves his walks and enjoys exploring the big world around him. Rascal has a big heart and so much love to give. He wants nothing more then a family to shower with love and bring joy to everyday. Once you have earned his trust he is all yours and ready to do whatever the day might have in store. He really is easy to please and fun to be around. Such a great personality in such a little body, you will not be disappointed having Rascal by your side.
Much like humans, dogs and puppies can also experience a feeling of illness while on car trips. This car sickness can make pet travel, whether short or long, quite an ordeal for dogs and their families. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help your dog in the car.
I’ve seen it frequently. You know, the little tagline quotes in our email signature lines. This one is an old Irish proverb, “Work like you don’t need money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. And dance like no one’s watching.” Dance is not just a wonderful metaphor for life, but also for God. Many have described the relationship between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as a kind of cosmic dance. God’s very nature is relationship: loving, vital, dynamic, and life-giving. You can dance on your own, but it’s so much more fun when you dance with others.
Beau might be the sweetest Beagle you’ll ever meet. He has big brown eyes, soft, long ears and a fluffy coat. He is 10 years young and is living in a foster home with three little kids who he loves. He is gentle and obedient. Other dogs are great company and he can even handle a cat. He plays well with others. Beau’s foster mom says he can be kenneled if needed, but she trusts him around her house. That is probably because he’s such a sweet and mellow guy. He mostly naps during the day. If he sees a bird or hears a dog bark, he likes to let out a good howl to let them know he’s around. Although he loves his foster family, Beau cannot wait to find his forever family.

Editor’s note: The Jewish High Holy Days are known in Hebrew as Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe). They are a time of repentance that starts with the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashana (literally the “head of the year,” which this year begins at sundown Sept. 4) and ends with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement, which includes a day-long fast in repentance and ends at 7:14 p.m. Sept. 14). The Shofar, a hollowed-out ram’s horn, is used to call the Jewish faithful to examine their lives in the past year and to atone for any misdeeds.
