His singing made me cry like a baby. I don't know why. I don't know what the words meant, but something about it stirred me to tears. I think it is so cool that a regular joe schmoe has a way to get his talent "out there." Awesome.

They're actually testing new low-emission xray machines in England right now. The problem is that they don't show your bones--they show an image of you with your clothes off, so that they can see any weapons. The images are scary detailed--they might as well make you strip.

Raisins have toxins and too much sugar. They can mess up the chin's GI tract and really should never be given. Safe treats include rose hips, plain shredded wheat, and oats--all of these should be given in small pieces no more than once a day. Fruit and vegetables have too much water and sugars and ...

Nope! They like to leave their little chocolate tic-tacs everywhere! They are pretty good about peeing in their cage, but usually not in a specific spot. Bummer, isn't it?

Oh, I was afraid of that. :( Chinchillas have sensitive digestive systems and dietary needs. They really shouldn't get fruits, vegetables, and seeds because of the sugar/fat content and possible toxins. They can also get diabetes from improper diet. Most pet stores don't tell people this :(
