Hibernation

Dangerous cold, snow, sleet and rain today. No Mr. Bowie, we can’t go outside. It’s even for a furry four-footer way too dangerous. How can I mentally survive winter? Do people really love winter that much? Can humans survive hibernation in good condition? Hmmm. I guess I’ll stick with espresso.

Say Goodbye and Say Hello

Live long and prosper. 2016 was a bumpy and emotional ride for me, my family and some dear friends. It looks like things can only get better in the new year. On the other hand, someone pointed out that I’m lucky. I’m born in a place where we are free to practice our beliefs without question. But the world is changing, and changing fast in some expected and unexpected parts. Freedom can easily slip away. Freedom for every religion, gender, race, belief and orientation. We must remain watchful to protect these freedoms.

Happy New Year! Hope you have a great new year 2017. May all your dreams come true. Looking at the photograph, Mr. Bowie seems to say “Live long and prosper”. He probably picked it up from watching too many Star Trek episodes as a kitten. Thank you for hanging out with us at HoB. Thanks for all your likes, comments and kindness. Love, peace and happiness.

Mr. Bowie says “Happy Meow Year!” Viva la Vida!

Some Good

Street on fire. Live report: This torchlight procession offers the inhabitants of my village a unique opportunity to kick off a brand new winter event in our village. And tonight, all the proceeds will go to people and animals in need.

Huff & Puff

Eat, drink and be merry. I developed a taste for good coffee and chocolate years ago, but it’s likely the result of genetic defects. The smell of freshly brewed coffee can be hard to resist. I can recognise good espresso and dark chocolate when I smell it miles away.

A cat’s nose is its most important organ. The world of a cat is the world of scents and odours. It is said that cats have a sense of smell fourteen times better than humans. Cats also use their sense of smell to detect the new treats you just bought.

“Let me in, let me in” cried Mr. Bowie, “Or I shall huff and puff and blow your house in!”

We hope you’re enjoying a warm, happy holiday season. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

Fuzzy

Your mind is all fuzzy. Why are you so tired and exhausted? Your brain needs sleep like a car needs gas and humans need chocolate; neither runs very well on empty. “Among other things, your body uses sleep to stabilise chemical imbalances, to refresh areas of the brain that control mood and behaviour, and to process the memories and knowledge that you gathered throughout the day,” says a famous researcher. Mr. Bowie is a wise cat.

Turn Back the Clock

A trip down memory lane. Occasionally I do go “home” again, on a trip back to where I grew up. We sold my parents house four years ago. A contracting firm made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. The house was very old, uncomfortable for my Dad and the expenses related to maintaining the house were too high. My Dad still lives in a new cozy apartment in the center of town.

We loved our old home and miss its character. But I’ll admit, not only is the impressive modern building itself beautiful, it is also incredibly detailed. Nevertheless, I wish I could turn back the clock.
