As you’re well aware, a partial government shutdown began Oct. 1. No matter what one’s views are on the political issues that led to this event, it’s probably fair to say that a shutdown is not particularly good news, on many fronts. Although essential services will continue, including Social Security and Medicare payments, other governmental functions will be disrupted, and hundreds of thousands of workers will be furloughed. So, as a citizen, you may well have concerns about the shutdown. But how will the shutdown affect you as an investor?

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.

‘The Conjuring” provides its audience with a checklist of ways to know if you’re living in a haunted house. Dog turns up dead, check. Previous owner boarded up the basement, check. Doors constantly creaking open, check. Birds flying into the side of the house, check. Your wife keeps getting unexplained bruises during the night, check. One of your daughters sleepwalks, check. Another one of your daughters sees a creepy figure at night, check. Another one of your daughters has a play date with a little dead boy, check. Personally, I would have packed my bags and hit the road after the dog got the axe, but that’s just me.

She just needs someone to give her a second chance to be part of a family who will love her and take care of her forever.
“Ordinary Grace,” by William Kent Krueger, is a touching coming-of-age novel set in the fictional town of New Bremen, “somewhere in the broad valley of the Minnesota River.” It is the summer of 1961, a time of innocence and hope for the country with a new young president.

For 13-year old Frank Drum it is a summer that becomes much more than a winning baseball season as his innocence is shattered due to a series of tragic events and deaths, including accidents, suicide and murder.
Summertime is full of fun, freedom and hot dogs, and we don’t mean the kind you get at the ballpark. Although an exact number is difficult to find it is estimated that thousands of dogs die every year from heat-related causes. A little information and common sense can save lives.
