Hello Chicken!

Image
I seldom see live chicken in Germany. Of course, I see a lot of chicken meat in the Metzgerei or butcher shops. Unlike in the Philippines, where my parents live, my father has a lot of chickens in the backyard. As we attended a friend´s birthday party last month, I saw that they have a lot of chicken. I already know before that they have chicken but I never see one. This time, I already saw a lot and I was amazed how big they are. Since I always have my pocket camera with me, I immediately took some pictures. Here is one of them.
My friend said that they don´t butcher their chicken. They only use their eggs for cooking. When they are dead, they just bury them.

A Reader's Request

Image
I got a request in my tag-board from a reader name Art last Feb. 07, 2008...saying this;
"Ruby, I have enjoyed your blog very much. I was in Hohenfels almost 40years ago. Could you PLEASE post a picture of The Schwarzen Katz restraunt on your blog? Thank You VERY MUCH"

Hello Art, I finally got some photos for you from the Black Cat Restaurant or Schwarze Katz here in Hohenfels...

anyway, this small beer house in Hohenfels is the favorite hang-out of American soldiers....it's just some hundred meters walk from our house but never been there..I also really don't want to go insides because guests or people there smoke too much...But since Jan. 2008, it is already prohibited by law to smoke inside the restaurants...so probably next time will try to go inside the Schwarze Katz..

.here it is...sorry done it a bit late...but anyway "Better late than Never"

my beloved Hohenfels..the farthest buildings are already the housing
of the US soldiers and their family..

A Very Important Lesson

Got this interesting story from my email..just want to share it with you peeps...
here it goes..

Three years ago, I adopted a purebred Sheltie from a rescue
shelter. His name was Buster. He had bad teeth and his fur
stuck out no matter what. I didn't care. He was my dog. He had
a few owners in his life, and I promised him that I would
never give him up, no matter what. Earlier this year, we found
out Buster had an enlarged heart. The vet gave him six to
eighteen months.

Buster was having seizures that were probably causing brain
damage. Last Friday night, he had a seizure and cracked his
head against the sofa. He couldn't walk after that. He kept
bumping into walls and experienced constant bowel movements and
vomiting. My dog was gone. Buster was no longer there. His body
was walking around, but that was all. I decided he needed to be
put to sleep.

He went to sleep on December 21, 2007, less than a month
before his ninth birthday. I feel his absence keenly. I
sincerely hope and pray dogs do get…

Everything you never knew about....Man's Best Friend

I watched a movie last night with friends entitled UNDERDOG by Walt Disney Production. That was a good movie especially for kids. It has a moral value about friendship and family. It's really worth watching for.

It happened that yesterday I also read an article in the Enquirer magazine about Man's Best Friend, the Dogs.

I love animals. Back in the Philippines, I have three dogs. Since the other one gave birth to five dogs, I supposed to have 8 dogs now. My brother gave away 2 dogs so I have now 6 dogs. They are supposed to gave away four newly birth dogs, but my husband said that he wanted to keep three.

Back to this article which I read yesterday, it's really quite interesting. For dog lovers here are some information about Man's Best Friend.

Are most dogs right-pawed or do they favor their left paw? Which pooches bark the most? Which breeds are the brightest? Augustus Brown's fascinating new book, "Play It Again, Tom"- tells you everything you never knew a…
