Yes, Wal-Mart's house brand of cat food (manufactured by Mars, makers of fine candy and pet food — a winning combination, but don't get confused on Halloween) has a little Salmonella prolem. Salmonella, famous for food poisoning, not for salmon. Here's a link to the full info. Supposedly these bags are all way out east […]
I spent last weekend with the Boy Scouts. Fall Camporee for the Cherokee District was at Camp Pine Ridge in Illinois. The weather was perfect and it was a great weekend for me to enjoy with the boys, especially my nephew and my brother. Here's a link to our Troop website and my pictures.
