TIL that it's just easier to feed cat food to the dog when I'm tired. She seems to like it better than her own kibble, anyways.

Of course she does, cat foods have higher content of animal protein and fat! (which also explains why it's more expensive than dog food ).

Re: TIL...

Yup! The best bagged dog foods are the soft, meaty brands anyways and those always cost more than I feel comfortable paying for a 4 lb. bag.

TIL... that Liberace played one of Batman's many villains in the 1960s series. I've watched many episodes of that show, but apparently that one escaped me. I wouldn't have known if they hadn't mentioned it on the radio this morning.

Re: TIL...

TIL that the $ and £ signs are not only placed before the amount (I knew that) but also that there is no space between them and the amount.
[ $1.00 One Dollar - £1,00 One Pound]

This is contrary to both the € and the Kr. (aka DKK) which are placed after both an empty space and the amount.
[ 1,00 € One Euro - 1,00 Kr. One krone]

^ Thanks for the compliment, TrekkieDane. And good to know that about the pound Sterling! (somehow I didn't realize it either)


TIL that... I'm finally finished with the flu! Suffered with it for a week. Glad it's over. Amazing to hear how much of a flu "epidemic" is running rampant across the country. I do wonder if the media is over-hyping it.

^ Given that the CDC labels a week or two of flu season an epidemic almost every year, yeah, it's over-hype. Glad you're feeling better.

OH....and that the green Vick's nighttime cold medicine is just as freakin' vile tasting as NyQuil.
So take the red stuff! That's some primo shit right there.
That green Nyquil is positively vile. I have been using the red "cherry" flavor one for almost ten years. It's not the best tasting thing, but it is palatable and it works.

I was a bit confused by your statement on the Euro, since every time I've seen it written, it was in the form €1.00, and not how you've stated. So I researched a bit, and found out that there *isn't* a standard way of writing it, although it's usually before the number (and no space) when written in English. It seems the individual countries each have their own way of writing it, usually in the same way their previous national currency was written.

feeding your dog cat food can also make him go blind...a vet told me that when our dog went blind for no apparent reason.

Re: TIL...

Really? I'm going to have to Google that and do some research....did your vet give any particular reasons? Did it have to do something with ingredients in cat food being detrimental to a canine's nervous system?

This is the first I've heard.
