Out of the Blue

As odd as it is to have two major national holidays so close together, today is IHOP National Pancake Day, just two days after Super Bowl Sunday. I'm a big fan of pancakes: cooking breakfast was the gateway to whatever other cooking I do to this day, so I will have to celebrate the occasion by turning out a stack or two, though a free serving of pancakes is tempting (especially since it supports charity), but with the nearest IHOP a half-hour away, it will be a lot quicker to make them.

Cats are awesome. I adore them and couldn't imagine living in a household without at least 2 of them (I have 3 now, but that could change if any more wounded strays show up...) Cats tend to be less liked than dogs because they are less "people-centric" and generally do their own thing, but as a person who has had cats for 30 years I can tell you that they are wonderful creatures that can be delightful and affectionate companions. They are just very different from dogs. Dogs are my true love but I would pour gas over myself and light a match before I ever turned away a Kitty in need. Mostly that's true about any animal really.
