Our Old Cat JoJo

JoJo Healthy

This is JoJo back in 2005.
She was 22 years old when she passed May 15th, 2013(?), and I buried her myself. Best cat I have ever known, and oddly enough apparently I knew exactly when she passed.
She was ill, and it was likely she would not survive the day. Everyone was gone and had said their goodbyes, but I was home. It was a warm day, and I knew that I’d need some liquids when it came time to dig her grave. I went in to comfort her, and she was clearly not seeing nor blinking, but still alive. I petted her, said I’d be right back, that I had to go to the store for something to drink, and went to stand up. She grasped out at my hand with a feeble meow, but I felt there was no time to waste.
I walked out of the room, started to shut the door (we usually shut her in the master bedroom to keep her safe from the doigs, fraile as she was) then stopped.
“JoJo, I promise, I will never close you in here again. I’ll be right back”.
On the way back from the store I approached a stop sign, and as I did I could see, sense JoJo.
I knew she was gone.
“Oh JoJo, did it hurt?” I heard myself say.
Then I was back to this world. I did not rush home, I knew, and I was right.

Pizza Gluten Free Hash Brown Potato Crust

Pizza Gluten Free Hash Brown Potato Crust

This video is called Pizza Gluten Free Hash Brown Potato Crust, and in it I’ll show you how to make a pizza that is gluten free. The crust is freshly grated potatoes, and done right it’s healthy, delicious, and pretty easy to make. You’ll use the sauce, cheese (I recommend whole mile mozzarella) and toppings of your choice. There are other options too, dough crust made from rice flour , beans, etc, but this worked very well for me.

I originally found the crust recipe online, and changed it to suit my needs. The pizza is a cross between a thin and thick crust, as the potatoes lose water volume during cooking. Be sure to use non-stick spray on your cooking surface, because the potatoes like to stick!

The Great Dictator Speech

The Great Dictator Speech

This is a video of The Great Dictator Speech, a moving part of a film that, while different that the Chaplin films that preceded it, still had him in his trademark (and copied) little mustache, the last time he wore it in a film.

The Great Dictator Speech

This was made even before Hitler had begun the cataclysmic second world war, and in many ways this departure for Chaplin mocks him thoroughly. Chaplin plays a Jewish barber who through a chain events gets mistaken for the dictator, eventually replacing the dictator due to this mistake, the speech being opposite than expected by the populace, and opposite all that the real dictator stood for.

Wonderful Life Phone Scene

This is the It’s A wonderful Life Phone Scene, where George Bailey argues with Mary, leaves angry, comes back to get his forgotten hat to find Mary on the phone with Sam (Hee Haw) Wainwright. The two join up to talk to Sam, and soon the sparks fly and a new love takes flight. One of my most favorite scene in one of my favorite movies.
