Dunedin, Florida: Dunedin Pipe Band Drum Bagpipe I just wanted to post this one more picture relating to the Bagpipe Band or the Pipe Band as they call it. Since so many of you enjoyed the picture of them in their kilts, I will have it in the back of my mind to get to their next event. More pictures, and if I can wangle it, I will try to get a little video, to see if I can capture the sound for you. We'll see!

Thanks for all your visits and kind comments. I am still working to get caught up with many of you. And that refers to both old friends and new! Oh, and by the way... HAPPY SATURDAY!!!!! WAHOO!!!!

*Here is a question for you... What about the Natural Pet Food discussion? I know you can get cat food and dog food that ranges from super cheap at 25 cents a can, on up to all natural pet food that costs over two bucks for a small can. I always figured that the food sold in Pet Stores was just overpriced. But what about All Natural Pet Food? What do you feed your pets? (Please leave a comment if you are so inclined.

  1. If you have a practical vet, ask him/her. Sometimes they sell pet food for animals whose needs include a simplified pet food.

    When I was a child, there was no such thing as "pet food." You couldn't buy "pet food" anywhere. And then the farmer's grain elevators began stocking Ralston pet food in 50 pound bags. I think that was the start and around World War II.

    So, everyone I knew, including us, fed our dogs and cats table scraps. They ate whatever we ate or the leftovers. If we had chicken they got the leftover bones. Never ever heard of a dog choking on a bone. They also ate the leftover fish bones. Animals didn't look as pampered as nobody brushed them, or tried to get rid of fleas or bathed them. They were just companions who never slept in bed with people or got up on furniture where people were setting.

    Then there came along this thing called "advertising" and people found it was one way for a man's idea to take shape and become a habit or profitable profit. Pet food is a classic example.

    Another example are Funeral Parlors. People used to be on display at home, in a casket parked in the living room. The so-called funeral home was the place that provided a hearse to transport the body from the home to the graveyard. Now, they play the whole game and the average cost is $7,000. And, in the old days you could bury your own body in the cemetery in a cardboard box. I suppose you still can if you are determined enough.

  2. my cat eats everything from bread to Sauerkraut, cat food included in this long list, and my (his?)... oh, well, OUR vet said we should keep on feeding the cat a little bit of everything, in small quantities so he doesn't get fat, and that's all right. wise doc!

  3. There are HUGE differences in pet foods - however finding them is often times a challenge. Pet Food names like 'natural' or 'premium' are nothing more than marketing terms - those terms might not imply to the quality of the food. The rules of the pet food industry clearly state that no manufacturer is allowed to place on a label or any advertising a reference to the grade or quality of the ingredients. In other words, a pet food can say it's premium when it's actually using chicken feet as the protein source. And on the flip side of that - a pet food manufacturer can use 100% human grade/quality of ingredients and they are NOT allowed to tell potential customers that on the bag. Then there is the issue of imported ingredients - pet food manufacturers are not required to provide information on the label as to the country of origin of ingredients.
    Quality pet foods using quality ingredients do cost more - but the savings to the pet owner in the long run makes good nutrition a bargain. I study this industry for a living - and provide lots of education to pet owners all around the world - if you want to learn more visit my website www.TruthAboutPetFood.com
