    That is a pic of the "baby" she is sitting on an old couch cushion pillow that's kinda flat I keep trying to get rid of it but they still want it to sit/sleep on eventhough they have a doggie bed pillow too Keona she is a real cry baby! If I leave her home w/DH she either hides upstairs sleeping on her Winnie the Pooh bean bag chair I bought on clearance before CALDOR went outta business I think it was $3(she's had this since she's been a baby puppy, always slept in it either in the SUV or living room it's getting really flat too I got her another one from the thrift shop in a Disney print design but to her it's not the same or sits by the front door waiting until I get back, she doesn't go near him. He says yeah she wants nothing to do w/me she only wants her 2 mommies (Me & Samantha) Since we got her when she was 8 weeks old she always thought of Samantha as her mommy! I attached a harness 2 both of them & then a leash to both harnesses connecting them to each other & Samantha walked Keona around the yard since she was tiny & could fit in between broken fence posts!

    I have a pic of this I gave DH years ago he has on his desk @ work! When I figure out how to use my HP printer/scanner to scan pics in that show up, I've tried to but never saw the pic I'll post the pics!

    I give them my egg yolks from the hard boiled eggs, sometimes make them scrambled eggs too! Also from Ma's eggs when she was having them for breakfast!

    They eat very healthy! Samantha is quite picky she won't eat her dog food until she gets something else from me (people food whatever we're having for dinner) or she'll just pick @ her food & then later on @ night when she gets hungry is after the girlz go out for the last tiime of the night between 11 PM - 12 AM if there is food left in her bowl she'll eat then!

    They don't beg but know if there's something left when I'm done I'll give it to them!

    I have to give her a can of dog food along w/her crunchies (dry food) but I have to ask her if she wants a C A N spelling it out since all 3 of them already understand can, crunchies, eat, dinner & she takes her time eating, sometimes she only wants to eat crunchies, but Keona she is a hoover & Ginger Ma's dog eats like a shop vac DH says. I have to feed them all separate since less chance of arguments or any fights

    Now they are both sitting by the fridge waiting for bacon since I got those ready cooked strips by Jimmy Dean on a MGR special for a lot cheaper than what Beggin Strips or any other doggie treats would cost. I eat them by themselves & give them a few.

    Keona misses Ma alot since she hasn't been living here since the day after Christmas when she went to the hospital!
    She'd go visit her, help her finish some of her meals & loved licking the yogurt containers when Ma was done! Sometimes cuddle w/her in bed too, Ma was suprised! Now Keona will walk into Ma's room & jump on her bed to look out the window when she hears me in the driveway before I get to the door.

    Ma was always happy w/both of my girlz but especially "the baby" yep! she called Keona that & never knew how gentle she was @ taking food from you....she just opens her mouth & you can drop it in or she'll just grab it, not like snatching it away from ya! Yet somehow Samantha almost nips you w/her teeth.

    How gentle Keona can be while waiting for DH @ work I had some RITZ crackers in the EXPY & was so I started eating some & gave my 2 girlz some then tried something different just holding part of the cracker in my mouth w/Keona sitting next to me, sitting on the middle console I told her to gently take the cracker from my mouth & she did!

    I'm not going to try any crazy stunts like DH friend made Samantha jump up to get a dog treat from his mouth years ago & she was gentle too!

    Something I could never teach Samantha was to crawl, it never worked, she'd just get up & walk towards me & "the baby" does this all the time in bed w/us crawling under the blankets

    A coupon postcard from COLDSTONE CREAMERY for a FREE t-shirt that says FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS EAT GROCERY STORE ICE CREAM

    You have to buy an EVERYBODY'S SIZE TO GO 48 OZ. & they give you the FREE T-SHIRT!

    customize your family's favorites

    http://www.coldstonecreamery.com/main/index.asp

    This offer is also listed on there website where you can print the coupon

    http://www.coldstonecreamery.com/togo/togoindex.html



    I have never tried there ice cream before but lucklily it's really close by & in the same shopping center as MICHAEL'S, so no wasting gas to get there & usually in my daily travel path

    I don't really eat ice cream since lots of them contain CARRAGEENAN & I get a carrageenen-induced tummy ache and intestinal discomfort

    I also found out CARRAGEENAN is in lots of food even some milk I bought my brother LACTAID when he had stomach problems before he died of adeno-carcinoma!

    It's very frustrating going grocery shopping & reading all the labels when you're in a hurry I bought one of my usual brands that didn't contain any CARRAGEENAN & this other formula of there soy product contained it, so I called them up & they sent me a FREE coupon to buy the other product I love


    http://www.notmilk.com/carageenan.html

    =
    TUMMY ACHE?


    STOMACH ACHES CAUSED BY CARRAGEENAN
    Some folks can eat just about anything. Some people might
    have no problem producing a tall glass of homemade soymilk,
    then converting it to chocolate milk by adding the
    following ingredients: Three teaspoons of sugar. One
    teaspoon of chocolate powder. Two tablespoons of Vaseline
    petroleum jelly. The Vaseline might produce gastric
    distress, and the soymilk drinkers would erroneously
    conclude that they are "allergic" to soy. Some people
    do not experience gastric discomfort caused by the
    Vaseline-like food additive, carrageenan. Many people do.

    Carrageenan is a commonly used food additive that is
    extracted from red seaweed by using powerful alkali
    solvents. These solvents would remove the tissues
    and skin from your hands as readily as would any acid.

    Carrageenan is a thickening agent. It's the vegetarian
    equivalent of casein, the same protein that is isolated
    from milk and used to thicken foods. Casein is also
    used to produce paints, and is the glue used to hold
    a label to a bottle of beer. Carrageenan is the magic
    ingredient used to de-ice frozen airplanes sitting on
    tarmacs during winter storms.

    IS CARRAGEENAN REALLY NATURAL?

    Carrageenan is about as wholesome as monosodium glutamate
    (MSG), which is extracted from rice, and can equally be
    considered natural. Aspartame (NutraPoison) is also natural,
    as it is extracted from decayed plant matter that has been
    underground for millions of years (oil). So too are many
    other substances such as carrageenan that can also be
    classified by FDA and USDA as wholesome and natural
    food additives.

    Just because something comes from a natural source does
    not mean that it is safe. The small black dots in the
    eyes of potatoes contain substances that are instantly
    fatal if eaten. Got poison? You will if you eat the
    black dots on the "eyes" of potatoes.


    Carrageenan is a gel. It coats the insides of a stomach,
    like gooey honey or massage oil. Digestive problems often
    ensue. Quite often, soy eaters or soymilk drinkers react
    negatively to carrageenen, and blame their discomforting
    stomachaches on the soy.

    High weight molecular carrageenans are considered to be safe,
    and were given GRAS status (safe for human consumption) by
    the FDA. Low weight carrageenans are considered to be
    dangerous. Even SILK admits this.

    In order to get more information about carrageenan from
    a scientist, I spoke with one of America carrageenan
    experts, Joanne Tobacman, M.D. Dr. Tobacman teaches
    clinical internal medicine at the University of Iowa
    College of Medicine. I explained to Dr. Tobacman that
    I rejected animal studies (we discussed valid concerns
    about animal research, and why they never produce
    reliable results for humans). I requested evidence of
    human trials that might show carrageenan to be a
    danger for human consumption.

    Dr. Tobacman shared studies with me that demonstrate that
    digestive enzymes and bacterial action convert high weight
    carrageenans to dangerous low molecular weight carrageenans
    and poligeenans in the human gut. These carrageenans
    have been linked to various human cancers and digestive
    disorders. Again, I remind you that Tobacman's evidence
    and conclusions are based upon human tissue samples,
    not animal studies.

    I will cite additional information from four studies:

    1) Filament Disassembly and Loss of Mammary Myoepithelial
    Cells after Exposure to Carrageenan, Joanne Tobacman,
    Cancer Research, 57, 2823-2826, July 15, 1997

    2) Carrageenan-Induced Inclusions in Mammary Mycoepithelial
    Cells, Joanne Tobacman, MD, and Katherine Walters, BS,
    Cancer Detection and Prevention, 25(6): 520-526 (2001)

    3) Consumption of Carrageenan and Other Water-soluble
    Polymers Used as Food Additives and Incidence of
    Mammary Carcinoma, J. K. Tobacman, R. B. Wallace, M. B.
    Zimmerman, Medical Hypothesis (2001), 56(5), 589-598

    4) Structural Studies on Carrageenan Derived Oligisaccharides,
    Guangli Yu, Huashi Guan, Alexandra Ioanviciu, Sulthan
    Sikkander, Charuwan Thanawiroon, Joanne Tobacman, Toshihiko
    Toida, Robert Linhardt, Carbohydrate Research, 337 (2002),
    433-440

    In her 1997 publication (1), Tobacman studied the effect
    of carrageenan on the growth of cultured human mammary
    epithelial cells over a two week period. She found that
    extremely low doses of carrageenan disrupted the internal
    cellular architecture of healthy breast tissue, leading
    her to conclude:

    "The widely used food additive, carrageenan has
    marked effects on the growth and characteristics
    of human mammary myoepithelial cells in tissue
    cultures at concentrations much less than those
    frequently used in food products to improve
    solubility."

    Tobacman continued her work by exposing low concentrations
    of carrageenan for short intervals to human breast tissue
    (2), and observed pathological alterations in cellular
    membranes and intracellular tissues. Tobacman wrote:

    "These changes included prominence of membrane-
    associated vesicles that coalesced to form unusual
    petal-like arrays...and development of stacked
    rigid-appearing inclusions in the lysosomes that
    arose from the membranes of the petal-like arrays
    and from smaller, dense spherical bodies that
    formed clumps."

    In reporting a historical perspective, Tobacman
    revealed that carrageenan has been found to
    destroy other human cells in tissue cultures,
    including epithelial intestinal cells and
    prostate cells. She concludes:

    "The association between exposure to low
    concentrations of carrageenan in tissue
    culture and destruction of mammary
    myoepithelial cells may be relevant to
    the occurrance of invasive mammary
    malignancy in vivo and provides another
    approach to investigation of mammary
    carcinoma."

    Tobacman's third paper (3) explored the increased
    incidence of mammary carcinoma to the increased
    consumption of stabilizers and additives such as
    guar gum, pectin, xanthan, and carrageenan. While
    no relationship between the either above named
    additives and cancer was observed, carrageenan
    showed a strong positive.

    Although high molecular weight carrageenans are
    considered to be safe, Tobacman demonstrates that
    low molecular weight carrageenans are carcinogenic.
    She writes:

    "Acid hydrolysis (digestion) leads to shortening
    of the carrageenan polymer to the degraded form,
    poligeenan. It is not unreasonable to speculate
    that normal gastric acid...may act upon ingested
    carrageenan and convert some of which is ingested
    to the lower molecular weight poligeenan during
    the actual process of digestion. Also, some
    intestinal bacteria possess the enzyme
    carrageenase that degrades carrageenan."

    Tobacman's 2002 publication (4) proves her earlier
    hypothesis. She writes:

    "Mild-acid hydrolytic depolymerization of
    carrageenan affords poligeenan, a mixture of
    lower molecular weight polysaccharides and
    oligosaccharide products."

    Tobacman is currently preparing and characterizing
    low molecular weight poligeenans (carcinogenic)
    that have been extracted from human digestion
    modalities. Her yet-to-be published data suggest
    that carrageenans are dangerous for human consumption.

    My advice: Read labels. If there is carrageenan
    in a product, select an alternative.

    This morning, I checked my local supermarket (ShopRite,
    Emerson, NJ) to see which soymilk manufacturers added
    carrageenan to their formulas.

    REFRIGERATED SOYMILKS

    The largest selling soymilk in America is SILK.
    Do I pick on the industry leader? Damned right I
    do. SILK sets the standard. You deserve to know the
    truth. Just for the record, when SILK changes
    their formula they will become my hero. In my
    opinion, SILK tastes better than any of the
    commercially available soymilks. Unfortunately,
    consumers sacrifice good health for good taste.
    That is not a fair trade, particularly for
    our children.

    SILK uses carrageenan. SILK plain, SILK chocolate.
    SunSoy also uses carrageenan. Hershey's real chocolate
    is not so real. They use it too. So does Nesquik.

    THESE COMPANIES DO NOT USE CARRAGEENAN

    VitaSoy does not have carrageenan! they use barley flower
    as a thickener. 8th Continent does not use carrageenan
    either. Their choice is to use cellulose gel and soy
    lecithin to create a smoother soymilk.

    SHELF STABLE

    On the shelf (non-refrigerated), I found Rice Dream.
    They do not use carrageenan. They use xantham gum.
    Soy Dream (made by Imagine Foods) does not use it
    either. Their emulsifier is rice syrup. Eden Soy
    does not use it. They use barley extract.

    Do a little experiment. Drink a quart of SILK.
    Pay careful attention to your carrageenen-induced
    tummy ache and intestinal discomfort. Many consumers
    unfairly blame that on soy. Now you know the truth.
    Drink a quart of VitaSoy, 8th Continent, Soy Dream,
    or Eden Soy, and you will not get the garrageenan-blues.

    Why do some manufacturers "get it," while others
    remain clueless?

    Um since I wont be tanning anymore this week (seeing that its Thursday evening) nor over the weekend - all my April Sunbed tanning was free!!!

    But for May when I need to go to maintain it - I have to buy the monthly pkg its ok - I tanned for 2.5 wks in April so far - thats a bargain if you ask me!

    AND a gf just dropped off her past 3 issues of a trendy magazine for me to read. Talk about recycling - I love it! Didnt have to pay for the subscription but then again I gave her some of my old ones in return.
