put away laundry while watching new Dead Files, changed all my series back to First Run, checked facebook, now time to hit the hay!

a Saturday nite alone....

kevin: work. Katie: @ koren's house. kj: went to movies with josh & sarah. deb: home with 1 eyed cat and 2 weaner dogs, watching her new American Ghost Hunter dvd.....which is sooo awesome....#1 'cause I love Ryan Buell....#2 because not only do they investigate chad's haunted childhood home in Persia, IA, they also investigate The Villisca Axe Murder House!!!!!!~

My husband sighting for the day: he caught me getting gas on my way home from work: he was on his way to go to work... And so the year's of marriage go merrily by...

Love is not just looking at each other in the eye, it's looking together outward in the same direction

I have decided that this is my last year as a Girl Scout leader. If another mom or local adult wants to become a leader, great! If not, Princeton has very active GS troops.

just posted this on the Mercer Girl Scouts facebook page. I feel slightly evil, but I am tired, I have lost the joy of being a leader, and the girls aren't getting all they can out of GS. (plus getting forced into being cookie chair put the final nail in the coffin.) I guess that after your daughter withdraws you from volunteer activities (band boosters, fall festival) it just gets easier to quit things on your own. The time feels right.

Got my permit! 2nd times the charm!

Katie's facebook post today! thank God daddy took her to Trenton to try again!
I came home from a rough day and put myself to bed after some attempts at hurling the lunch I didn't eat.....Kevin made potato soup and roused me up and I do feel better. Conclusion: my job is killing me!

PEDV

National Pork Board Statement on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) The USDA has confirmed that porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) has been identified in the United States for the first time through testing at the National Veterinary Services Laboratory. This is not a new virus, nor is it a regulatory/reportable disease. Since PEDV is widespread in many countries, it is not a trade-restricting disease, but rather a production-related disease. PEDV may appear clinically to be the same as transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus with acute diarrhea. Producers will need to work with their herd veterinarian with if any TGE-like symptoms appear and as always, maintain strict biosecurity protocols. •Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) is a virus similar to transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE), another disease only affecting pigs. It is not zoonotic, so therefore it poses no risk to other animals or humans. Also, it poses no risk to food safety. •PEDV has been identified in the United States in a small number of herds. The virus is not a new virus as it was first recognized in England in 1971. Since then, the disease has been identified in a number of European countries, and more recently in China, Korea and Japan. •USDA, State Animal Health Officials, the American Association of Swine Veterinarians and veterinarians at the National Pork Board are actively monitoring this disease and will make recommendations to producers as necessary. •PEDV is transmitted via the fecal-oral route and may appear to be the same as transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus with acute diarrhea within 12 to 36 hours of onset. Herd veterinarians remain well versed in managing TGE-like diseases. •Laboratory testing is the only way to diagnose PEDV. •As always, producers who see any signs of illness in their pigs should notify their herd veterinarian immediately to address the issue. •PEDV does not affect pork safety. Pork remains completely safe to eat.

Barn Dance Trading Company . If you are worried because you don't have enough of this or that, or not happy with your Christmas presents etc, just remember it can always be worse. Look at this Mother and her young daughters admiring their little Christmas tree. They look so happy with it. I imagine it must have been pretty cold in that tent.
