So the month is almost over

So the whole month of the blog challenge is almost over. Its been pretty interesting and its seems that Cliff has a good group of friends to hang with. I’ve learned a lot from the group and its been interesting to read about your lives and thoughts. I’m definitely keeping up following the lot of you. Not only do you guys have some of the same thoughts I do about agri-business, but some of you are further along than I am, and are doing some of the things I want to be doing. So being completely selfish I want to keep in contact so I can ask the questions I need so I don’t have to learn them the hard way. :)

I wasn’t really able to really follow everybody, everyday though. With the move and whatnot it put a serious damper on my time, it actually got worse once I arrived in Wpg because of family being around. In hotels I could be on and ignore Kathy all I wanted, but I can’t ignore the rest of the family. That would be wrong.

So Cliff is lucky to have a cool group to hang with.

News today: My contact within MTS said I am going to be sent for one more round of assessment testing, which means I passed the interviews. So good news there. Bad news is we spend near $300 at the vet today because Ares had his rashes start to appear again, and the vet gave us other pills, plus heartworm pills we don’t have to worry about in CA. But the good news is we got some good info out of him for things to do, and what we need to do in the future. He has more things to do, but nothing that is in dire need, just more maintenance stuff.

So that’s it for today. I guess we have one more to write for tomorrow?

Cliff - Peer Pressure Works, Chad - The Grind, Kelly - ‘Round the Bend, Kim - In Desperate Need of Entertainment, Erron – From the Inside Looking In, Kyle - Blog, Liam - In the Now, James – Feelings of White, Shaun - Expedition of Truths, Tammy - Tam I am, Vlad – Analog Coast, Janine – Because.


  1. Nope, you're free. Today was the last day.

    And look at this! Mr. "Oh, I can't write that much." wrote every day for a month, EVEN DURING AN INTERNATIONAL MOVE.

    You realize you've invalidated any future whining about not being able to write, right? :)

  2. Nope. Not at all. Writing about what happened during my day is a little different than writing about whatever else it may be about. But, I will admit that writing will not send my heart into palpitations. :)

  3. I am glad to hear you got the next step of the process for MTS. I heard a stat today on the financial channel that in the US right now, people who are laid off are out of work for 32 months on average. That was shocking. I know different sectors are better than others.

    How come Ares gets a rash, is he allergic to food or something else?

  4. We're not actually sure why he gets a rash. It could be a food allergy, but we think it has more to do with pollen. This year has been really bad, but he normally got small rashes in the spring and fall, but this year they spread to his whole belly and he had to go on meds.

    This vet seems to want to try and get to the bottom of it too, so that's a good thing.

    Yes. The US economy sucks. Big time. California is even worse. Which is why I got out. :)

  5. I used to have a basset that would get belly rashes and be really itchy. For her it was poultry in food and treats that seemed to be the cause. It's a bit of trial and error to figure it out.

    On a cat note, Thor is now on the grain free food and his coat is sure looking better already after just a few weeks. Will take a bit of time to see if there are positive effects on the diabetes, but hopefully.

  6. Good to hear about Thor. I hope he'll be ok.
