Late night mews, holiday high Kittens... gently raining on the tame prairie now... this morning there were actual blue skies for a time... then the clouds began moving in... still, the temps are not that bad... and today on her trek back from the mailbox the Kougaress saw a tiny Dandelion that had bloomed... certainly she's never seen a Dandelion at this time of year before... so, wow!
Have a wonderful Christmas Eve day, most darling kittens. Spread the LOVE 'cause this Big Cat loves ya!

"Empty as a glass of rum egg nog at Duff McDuff's tavern," Satriani muttered under her breath. She stuffed her gloved hands deeper into her pockets and continued her *looking at the Christmas lights* stroll through the neighborhoods surrounding her little cozy nest of a house.

Our Top 20 Works of Fabulous Fiction to Inspire Self-Reliant, Liberty-Loving Children and Teens
The Organic Prepper - My kids are total bookworms, so I enlisted their help to compile this list of favorites. Some folks may pooh-pooh the idea of fiction as a teaching tool, but reading about a character who is smart, adaptable, self-reliant, and skilled can influence the way your child or teenager thinks.
