Knowing when to call it quits - Kathy Jefcoats

I used to like Whoopi Goldberg but I can't remember why now. I do remember the moment I stopped appreciating her work as an artist. I was working at Books-A-Million when her autobiography was released. I snatched up a copy and turned to the first page. All I remember is that she went on and on about farting. It was not funny and not what I expected from a woman of her position in the entertainment industry. I closed the book, put it back on the shelf and have not spent another minute on her whether on television or in movies.

Pets of the Week

Jesse is a 5-year-old, blue merle Australian shepherd. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Jesse was rescued from Animal Control, when Clayton County Humane Society staff found him there, nearly dead. After months of intensive treatment and care, Jesse began to improve. He is now a healthy, active dog. However, Jesse has become depressed and sad after his longtime roommate, Brandy, was adopted. Attempts to give him a new friend have failed. Jesse really needs to be in a loving home, where he can be the center of somebody's world. He is an active dog and attempts to "herd" everyone around him, being true to his breed. Jesse is wary of strangers, so potential adopters should be prepared to visit Jesse at the shelter, and begin to build a bond with him before taking him into a new home. When Jesse plays, he plays hard. Because of this, Jesse should not be in a home with small children. For adoption information call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.

Back off, you water Nazis - Ed BrockI'm not selfish. My plants are.

Well, there's nothing else to write about, so I'm going to gripe about the new water restrictions. It's not that I don't realize the need, I just need to get my feelings off my chest.
