Two-alarm house fire in Truro

My husband, Jeff, took this pic... he was there, volunteering with the Red Cross.

TRURO - A two-alarm fire has gutted a house in Truro Thursday afternoon. The fire broke out at 32 Town Hall Road sometime around 3:20 p.m. Reports say an elderly woman lived at house and was not injured. The house is believed to be a total loss. Firefighters from across the outer Cape responded to bring in water by tanker to help quell the flames while others covered empty stations. No word yet on a cause. The American Red Cross also provided rehab to firefighters on scene. Photo courtesy of Jeff Stranger.

Animals are people, too.

I just finished posting a comment to an article I read on Salon...
It made me catch my surprise, horror and shame.

To me, the worse part about the consumption of animals is, I feel horrible knowing how animals in this country are raised and slaughtered, and yet, I still eat meat and prepare it for my family. Meat is the centerpiece of my families diet. We eat a lot less of it than we used to, mostly for health reasons, but what will it take for me to, once and for all, remove it from the table?

I saw this on the news, so it's real... I'm in!

I signed up... instead of donating to the state lottery, I'll spend my $3 a week on this site, and get money back when I shop online, too. Take a look, and see what you think. :)

Someone will win a $1 Million Jackpot this Sunday!

Do you want to win $1 Million?

I just joined this club that is giving away $1 million this week and it offers "the best odds ever of winning $1 million." We also get incredible deals every day, huge cash-back rewards and lots of other cool stuff.

What the experts have to say about our incredible odds...
Richard McGowan, Ph.D., a noted professor of statistics at Boston College and a nationally recognized expert in gaming says, "These are extremely good odds in comparison to those given in other sweepstakes games and much better than any state lottery. In fact, to my knowledge, these are the best odds ever to win a $1 million jackpot."

There is a free One Week Trial , and if you join now using this invitation link, we both double our chances of winning the weekly $1 Million Jackpot.

The Parade between two storms...

It rained all night, and it's supposed to rain again this afternoon thru midnight... and it's drizzly and grey this morning, but it looks like the St. Patty's Day Parade in Yarmouth is still a go! Jeff left a few minutes ago to the Red Cross Chapter House to get the URV ready to serve up hot chocolate and coffee to the parade participants, which I'm sure will be very welcome in this raw weather. Hopefully, the heavy rain and winds will hold off until the parade is over. Maybe a splash of Irish whiskey in that coffee would be nice. :)
