The piglets are doing fine, but here is a pic to prove it (although it is from the other night, so I guess I am not proving anything):


But this is basically what they are doing right now, just being bitchier and less photogenic. In an odd note, Steve is the first cat I have ever known who likes steak. I really think this kid is part bobcat.

And you all keep calling him fat like I am over feeding him, but I swear to you, yes, he has the little paunch that all toms get when they get snipped later in life, but he just really is a big damned cat. His frame is massive and he is bigger than both dogs, even if he was skinny. He’s just a big man.

    Then there is the conflict, which may quickly escalate if Israel decides

    The reluctance to spend time in public places is shared now in Israel, too, as the rockets rain down. But Israel is a larger, much more modern polity, which has equipped itself with shelters, air-raid sirens and a missile-defense system.

    Like most Gazans, Dr. Sahbani would not fault Hamas but rather “the siege and the occupation.” As a Palestinian Authority employee, he lost his salary when he continued to work in Al-Shifa under the Hamas government, which did pay him, though less.

    Both Sides Do It!

    It is a plaint heard regularly here, with particular pathos during hostilities. Gazans see themselves as living in a poor territory that nobody cares about, a kind of “prison,” as they like to say, trapped between Israel, an ambivalent or unfriendly Egypt and the closely patrolled sea. Not even fellow Palestinians in the West Bank really care for them, they say.

    it’s not the racist triumphalism that is most annoying, it’s the “Of course, they are also prisoners of their situation,” Both Siderism of Haaretz on the Hudson that really grates

    11:27 P.M. The armed wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement has warned international airlines that it intends to target Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport with its rockets from Gaza and has told them not to fly there, a statement by the group said on Friday.

    Dimona (Hebrew: דִּימוֹנָה) is an Israeli city in the Negev desert, 36 kilometres (22 mi) to the south of Beersheba and 35 kilometres (22 mi) west of the Dead Sea above the Arava valley in the Southern District of Israel. Its population at the end of 2007 was 33,600.[1]

    My husband sent me your pic, he’s your most avid reader fan! — He sent this to me, because of the cat! — I would judge by those beautiful paws and those lovely tufts between the paws and the handsome tiger markings that your cat is going to get pretty damn big! — Mostly likely a Maine Coon Cat! :) — Good Luck with him, he’s awesome! :)
