Earth Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

April 22nd is EARTH DAY.  Every year, more than 1 billion people in 175 countries will participate in various Earth Day events on this date.  It is the largest civic observance in the world.  The purpose is to raise awareness about important environmental issues.

The first Earth Day took place in 1970.  After witnessing the affects of an oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, US Senator Gaylord Nelson organized a grassroots environmental teach in on college campuses across the country.  Many people believe that this first Earth Day celebration marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement.

Celebrate today – plant a tree, help clean up a beach or park and/or participate in an event near you.  Help to keep this world a better place for everyone!

And a little blast from the past you might remember that deals with Earth Day – Captain Planet and the Planeteers.  Do you remember this show?  It was an American animated environmental program created by Ted Turner, Robert Larkin III and Barbara Pyle.  It came out on September 15, 1990.

The basis of the program was set with Gaia – the spirit of the planet.  She is awakened by drilling which is above her resting chamber.  To control the damage, she sends out five magic rings to youths around the world who will become the Planeteers.

Kwame is from Africa and has the power of Earth with his ring.

Wheeler is from North America and has the power of Fire with his ring.

Linka is from the Soviet Union and has the power of Wind with her ring.

Gi is from Asia and has the power of Water with her ring.

Ma-Ti is from South America and has the power of Heart and telepathy with his ring.

All five can use their rings special powers to call the super hero – Captain Planet for help.

I think today would be the perfect day to check out this old classic of helping the environment!

Of Course I Won’t Laugh

Snorts – I couldn’t resist this one my friends.  I saw this on the internet the other day and almost peed myself.  I couldn’t wait to show it to mom and dad.  Trust me, they needed this laugh right about now here at the Hotel Thompson.  Happy laughing my friends!

Texts from Bacon

There comes a time in a little pigs life that he needs to start thinking about his future. I thought perhaps I had a career picked out but mom set me straight – thank goodness. My texts are in blue and moms are in gray. Enjoy.

Dear Bacon

20130321-223616.jpg

Dear Bacon – I love water – I mean I L.O.V.E. water. I love it!

I get in it every chance I get.

Can you tell? LOVE WATER!! This is my happy face!! Signed Waterdog

Dear Waterdog – Nah, I can’t tell. Let me get this straight – you love water? Snort –

Dear Bacon – I love playing hide and go seek out in nature. It’s so much fun! My best place to hide is on a tree that blends in with my fur tones.

Don’t you love playing too?! Signed – Come and Find Me

Dear Come and Find Me – You are good at that game. You know who else is good at hide and go seek? Bashful my pet rock. He hid in the fish tank with the other rocks one afternoon and it took me over an hour to find that little fellow!

I’m glad I did though – he was getting tired of holding his breath. He said he almost drowned! Keep playing my friend!


20130321-223639.jpg

Dear Bacon – The humans – they think they are so funny. They took me for my spring cut. Just a little off the back they said. This is what I came home with. I’m so embarrassed. What am I to do? Signed Wacky Cut

Dear Wacky Cut – Let’s step back and look at this with a fresh set of new eyes. You can’t change what’s been done and undo it. So, I say wear it with a statement. Make a trend in that neighborhood of yours. Next thing you know, the other dogs might be going to the groomer wanting the ‘Wacky Cut’ look and you’ve started a trend. It is hair and it will grow back.

In the mean time, strut it!


20130321-223703.jpg

Dear Bacon  – The humans have this table cloth in the kitchen that I just can’t keep off of it. I like to play the game Twister on it. I think it’s a hoot except for left front paw on yellow and left back paw on orange. That kind of gets me all twisted and I go boom.

Have you ever played this game? Signed Kitwister

Dear Kitwister – It looks fun but I’m not sure if I could play or not. You know my pot belly – it gets in the way and I have really short legs. They don’t stretch that far. Especially these days when mom says I’m getting a little fat roll on them. Fat roll – snort – that’s not fat.

That’s just loose skin from hibernating all winter. Play on my kitty friend – twist away!


20130321-223717.jpgDear Bacon – Are you a couch pig? I read where you sit on the sofa with mom at night. That’s one of my favorite past times. It doesn’t have to be night though – I like doing it all through the day. Signed Couch Kitty

Dear Couch Kitty – You know I don’t say this much but you might want to get off of the couch every once in a while. I also ‘run’ through the halls here at the Hotel Thompson before landing on the couch with mom at night. I do a lot of playing around with the purr things here. You might want to try it a couple of times – just sayin’!

National Stress Awareness Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Today April 16th is a day that Bacon’s mom can definitely wrap her arms around – National Stress Awareness Day.  This day was created in 1992 sponsored by  the Health Resource Network (HRN). They started this holiday to increase public awareness of the causes and cures of stress.  And we all know that stress can come from a variety of different reasons:  paying bills, work, children, schedules, car problems, friends – you name it and stress can come from it.  And here in the United States with taxes being due yesterday, what better day to have this holiday then today?

Today is the day to acknowledge that you are stressed out and then do something about it.  Go for a walk.  Try some meditation.  Try some exercise.  Do some yoga.  Just lay down and relax.  Just for a bit, don’t concentrate on the wrongs in your life but concentrate on the things that you have to be grateful for.  Shrug off this stress even if it is just for today.  I know this afternoon me and Bacon are going to try yoga.  Wish us luck – his downward pig pose is not something I’m looking forward to – chitter chatter!

Look Up at the Sky Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

April 14th is Look Up at the Sky Day.  Bet you didn’t know this was a holiday did you?  Today, take a few minutes to go outside and check it out.  Sit on the ground, lay on the ground – have a picnic, or sit at a table.  While you’re there, check out the sky.  Just look up and see what you can find.  Are there clouds?  If so, what shapes can you make out of them?  Are there planes or birds?  And don’t just keep this activity to day time hours, check the sky out at night.  Do you see the moon?  Is it full or covered?  Do you see the stars?

Have a fun time at it and why not invite your humans to do the same.  Take a little time to sit, breathe and look at the wonder of the world.
