Pet ownership has grown 17 percent in the past 10 years, and as more people embrace furry friends, more vets are needed to keep them healthy. The veterinary medicine field has echoed advances in human medicine, and veterinary specialists in fields like oncology and ophthalmology have found clients clamoring for services.
Another growth driver: An increased demand for vets in fields like food safety, disease control and pharmaceutical research.

Cyberthieves are increasingly planting fake security alerts that pop up when computer users access a legitimate website. The "alert" warns them of a virus and offers security software, sometimes for free and sometimes for a fee."Lots of times, in fact they're a conduit for attackers to take over your machine, they'll take your credit card information, any personal information you've entered there and they've got your machine. Some some rogue software have the ability to rope a users' machine into a botnet, a network of machines taken over to send spam or worse.
I had this happen to me, and had to have my computer cleaned of this crap.........they also hit my bank for $551.00 and another debit of $42.45. Since I live on a fixed income this really got my attention. Fortunately, I was able to get my money put back into my account, by catching it in time. Some people aren't so lucky!

You'd never guess I was grown, by the way some people act, when they think your doing something they don't know about. I haven't told everyone what I've been doing for the last 2 days and they are thinking all kinds of things.
Since my spouse and I have been apart, everyone has been in our business. So, when we got together to talk the other day and get a bite to eat they started assuming all kinds of things. We stayed away from them and went our own ways, doing what we felt necessary to handle our situation. You would have thought, the whole world was about to crash. They couldn't have their noses in our business, and was making all kinds of remarks, every time we would show up where they were. My sister, even called my cell and sent me a nasty email. Well, she can stew in her own brew a few hours or days.
If we wanted others opinions, we would have asked them. Most of them know what our break up was about, and so they think we should stay apart. I believe that if two people love each other as much as we do, then they should find a common ground. So, we went underground and faced our own feelings the way we wanted to. Without them and their opinions! Now they are pushing it and delving deeper into our business. So I guess we'll have to decide soon, what we are really going to do........and get this crap over with. Darn all these idiots.........we're both well over grown.....and have a right to make our own decisions.........And we will !

The hosts' value is similarly evidenced by their lengthy contracts and seven- to eight-figure salaries. Letterman, who actually owns his show, is the genre's top earner: He pulls down an estimated $32 million a year from his work on "The Late Show." To protect against poaching or fleeing and perhaps to incentivize responsible behavior, Leno, too, was locked into a long-term contract at "The Tonight Show" that paid him approximately $27 million a year

Ever since taking office, Obama has come under fire from leading gay and lesbian activists who say he’s foot-dragging on their top priorities – repealing a ban on gays in the military, expanding same-sex marriage and prohibiting workplace discrimination.
Obama has pleaded for patience – saying he’s believes in expanding gay rights but has so much on his plate with the recession and the wars in Iraq and that he and Congress just need more time. Now, the attacks on Jennings and Feldblum provide a potent reminder of the perils gays and lesbians still face in the political sphere.

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
Date: 05-27-09, 1:43 A M EST.
I was the guy wearing the black that you
demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on my
girlfriend, threatening our lives and me.
You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings.
I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather
First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment when I drew
my pistol after you took my Jacket. The evening was not that cold, and I
was wearing the jacket for a reason.
My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 A CP
pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster
for it that very evening.
Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when
pointed at your head wasn't it?
I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd
come from bare footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and
wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your
buddies to come help mug us again].
After I called your mother, or "Momma" as you had her listed in
your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I
Went and filled up my gas tank as well as four other people's in the gas
station on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150
gallons and was extremely grateful!
I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's,
along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]
I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that
was parked at the curb ... after I broke the windshield and side window
and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.
Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell
phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the
phone for a little over a day now, so what's going on with that?
Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the
DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my
possible target. The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice
long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but
I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for
your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some
of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you
have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider the career
path you've chosen to pursue in life.
Remember, next time you might not be so lucky.
Have a good day!
P.S. Remember this motto.
An armed society makes for a more civil society!
What else is going to happen, this is major "suck up"!
Afghan President Hamid Karzai (C) and US President Barack Obama at the White House in Washington DC, May 2009.
The Taliban condemned Obama's Nobel Peace Prize, saying rather than bring peace to Afghanistan he had boosted troop numbers and continued the aggressive policies of his predecessor.

Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, 'Here. You hold this high so I can see what I am doing!'
Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world.. 'Whoa there', said the doctor, 'Don't be in such a rush to put that lantern down I think there's another one coming.'
Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. 'Hold that lantern up, don't set it down there's another one!' Said the doctor.
Within a few minutes he had delivered a third baby 'No, don't be in a hurry to put down that lantern, it seems there's yet another one coming!' cried the doctor.
The redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor, .. . . . .. 'You reckon it might be the light that's attractin' 'em?'

Is trying to gather more support for his Health Plan. Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bush’s home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single syllable words.
As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.
The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem with them circle flies?"
Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what they're called, but I've never heard of circle flies."
"Well Sir," the cowboy replies, "circle flies hang around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."
"Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling. But, a moment later he stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling me a horse's ass?"
"No, Sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the citizens of this country to call their President a horse's ass."
"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.
After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says,
"Hard to fool them flies, though."

You Are Balanced and Thoughtful
You view people with optimism. You have many meaningful relationships in your life.
You had more conflict with your father than your mother. Your relationship with him was healthy but challenging.
You don't deal with stress well. Even moderately stressful events tend to send you in a tailspin.
You require a lot of calm in your life. When things get too hectic, you need to step back and reassess things.

How's This For Nostalgia?
All the girls had ugly gym uniforms?
It took five minutes for the TV to warm up? I also remember when there was no TV
Nearly everyone's Mom was at home when the kids got home from school?
Nobody owned a purebred dog?
When a quarter was a decent allowance?
You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny?
Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces?
All your male teachers wore neckties and female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels?
You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time? And you didn't pay for air? And, you got trading stamps to boot?
Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box?
It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents?
They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed. And they did it!
When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car...to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races, and people went steady?
No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked?
Lying on your back in the grass with your friends?
and saying things like, 'That cloud looks like a... '?
Playing baseball with no adults to help kids with the rules of the game?
Stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger?
And with all our progress, don't you just wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace, and share it with the children of today.
When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home?
Teach these kids some respect.
Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.
. .as well as summers filled with bike rides, baseball games, Hula Hoops, bowling and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar.
Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, 'Yeah, I remember that'?
I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dog Dare to pass it on. To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, read on. And remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care.
Send this on to someone who can still remember Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Laurel and Hardy, Howdy Doody, The Peanut Gallery, the , The Shadow Knows, Nellie Bell, Roy and Dale, Trigger and .
How Many Of These Do You Remember?
Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside.
Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles.
Coffee shops with Table Side Jukeboxes.
, Clove and Teaberry chewing gum.
Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers.
Newsreels before the movie.
Telephone numbers with a word prefix...(Raymond 4-601). Party lines.
Hi-Fi's & 45 RPM records.
78 RPM records!
The Fort Apache Play Set.
Do You Remember a Time When..
Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, 'Do Over!'?
'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest?
Catching The Fireflies Could Happily Occupy An Entire Evening?
It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'?
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was 'cooties'?
Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a Slingshot?
Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials for action figures?
'Oly-oly-oxen-free' made perfect sense?
Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?
The Worst Embarrassment was being picked last for a team?
War was a card game?
Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?
Taking drugs meant orange - flavored chewable aspirin?
Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?
If you can remember most or all of these, Then You Have Lived!!!!!!!
