Ray Boone-Richmond Free Press-RIP

His memorial service was today,he will be missed. One of my favorite Ray Boone moments was when Occupy Richmond was thrown out of the park on the mayor's orders, Mr Boone invited them to camp out on his lawn, across the street from the mayor's house.

Why I won't take a side in the Ukraine battle

I admit to knowing very little about most things, I accept gut reactions, filtered news, who controls the media but over the years I've tried to at least read the spin on both sides. So with that in mind, I've spent last night and this morning attempting to understand the battle in the Ukraine and the nationalistic rightwing influence within the protest movement concerns me. BBC has a few good articles explaining a timeline for the protest movement.

Update on ice cat and hounds

Well, I took everyone to my vet, turns out the hounds had ear tats with a guys initials and a number and the vet figured out who it was and cat has no chip or anyone looking for it. I drove around asking neighbors, called animal control to deal with the hounds since they could return them to the owner, they were a bit thin however I left it to animal control so they could enter the property and see if there are any other dogs or if the owner has a legit reason for their weight. They were energetic dogs and otherwise looked ok, maybe they are just recovering from a hunting season. AC has the cats picture so if anyone comes looking for her, they will call me.
Anyway, I put pictures up of the cat at the 2 vets and feed store. My vet said she is probably neutered but is very furry so it's hard to see a scar. Vet agrees she is a pet. Got her a rabies shot, and I figure she lives here now. I kinda named her Bella. I am ambivalent about her, I am falling in love but she is such a lovely cat, if she is a lost pet her humans must be worried.
My vet is a saint and gives me a huge break on the bill when I go in with a stray, she has worked on strays for me for only what it costs her to treat them. And on the occasion I've brought in a stay too sick to save, she will not charge me for putting it down. That's happened twice with 2 really sick hounds that were too sick to save.

So kitty showed up on my porch last night seeking shelter from the storm

We got the snow and ice here last night/this morning. About 2am my good dog Joe was barking and whining at the door, so I let him out and went out to make sure the horses were ok and the 2 stray hound dogs I put up in the garage were ok and Joe came out of woods with an ice covered cat following him. The hound dogs showed up before the storm, neither have collars and are quite thin but poor cat was covered in ice, my good dog Joe is one of those that takes care of all animals, I think he knew she was out there and brought her to safety, he seems to know the stray hounds also, I'm going to have a talk with him about this animal rescue thing he's doing. Cat is doing fine, she's dry, ate and is napping now.
