After reading this book, I have two main desires. Firstly, I really want to go to Parma, Italy and have a bite of cheese with Balsamic on it. Secondly, I want more regulations in the United States, at least when it comes to food and the environment.

Robert Heinlein wrote a book called Podkayne of Mars in 1962. It was about a 15-year-old girl named Podkayne "Poddy" Fries and her 11-year-old, maybe psycopathic brother, Clark. They on a ship with their uncle to travel to Venus. Stuff happens. Podkayne saves her brother and uncle and dies or doesn't, depending on if you read Heilein's preferred ending of the book of the version that the publishers wanted. I liked the book.

Casper got a bone for Christmas. When Cheetah was alive, we couldn't keep rawhide in the house. Cheetah ate them too fast, which poses a blockage problem. I suspected that Casper would be okay with a rawhide bone, since he's gentle with stuffed toys. He really loved his bone. The original photo, taken on my phone amazingly, is below.
