The New Year started quite normal for most of us except for the
unusual warm weather at first that then sent us shivering
inside. I can only imagine what it would be like for an animal
lost for some reason that was used to have a home. I have to
report that there is yet another lovely tom cat hiding on my
porch. If I bring him to the Humane Society he likely will be
euthanized, as they only find homes for half of the lost
animals, so I read.
This way many thousands find an untimely
death. I somehow do not have the heart to have anything living
handed over for death. If you are willing to adopt a handsome
cat I would be so happy. He is healthy, looks about 3-4 years
old at most, he is neutered and friendly. If you are ready to
get this honey of a bear call me at 416-652-1332.
We are having a bit of the winter blues, I admit it, and did not
feel like doing too much in the way of work. Surely you will
forgive us for being more engaged in hibernating than running
around in the cold. If it were possible for us I would camp
somewhere warm down south, but due to our 4 cats we cannot.
Instead we enjoy a lot of comfort foods and visits to lunch and
a movie, hot chocolate and a good book, and always a cuddly cat
nearby to smooch. Besides, in the harsh of winter we need to
feed the other creatures too, the birds and squirrels and even
the racoons, because they do not go away if you do not provide
an offering occasionally. They go into the garbage and make a
mess and the neighbourhood unsafe for domestic animals. I prefer
my neighbourhood menagerie well fed and healthy.
Besides the urge to hibernate we also felt a lot like music and
went to a couple of concerts, which abound at this time of year.
We also have a lot of catching up to do with our website, which
was hacked into or something and we all of a sudden had a big
mess on our hands, which we only discovered recently. It is a
lot of work to fix it all and bring it back to the life it used
to have. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have
Alongside we are developing another site. Our original site was
www.echoworld.com and now
has moved under the same name to a .net address. So you will
find our original website now at
www.echoworld.net. On the
new site (www.echoworld.com)
we are developing a new concept, more modern, more general and
inclusive and with blogs and such, hopefully also some social
media gadgets. I shall keep you up to date as we go along. I am
not quite sure how I will manage all that, being such a dinosaur
with this high tech stuff, but learn I must.
In the meantime I hope you stay with us and enjoy what we have
to offer. The community has quite a few interesting things going
on. We learned that in Oshawa Club Lorely even had a Mardis Gras
event. How wonderful! Unfortunately we could not go and no one
volunteered a report. Remember, if there is an interesting event
in the community and we cannot come you can send in a report and
we try and print it, if we have the space. At the very least it
will go online for the world to read. This way we will keep our
aging and shrinking numbers strong.
Until next time
