Folks have mentioned an interest in questions and conversations that make them think. So I've decided to offer more of those. This is the current list.

29. What are your biggest goals for this year? How will you work to achieve them?

Here are my goals for 2019.  I have already met 7 of them and I'm on track with several others.

Top Ten Cutest Cat Breeds

Cute cats by breed

There are between 44 to 48 recognized breeds of cats in the world, depending on who you ask. So we took on the monumental task of deciding which ones go in our top 10. These cat breeds are incidentally among the most popular in the world, and every year there are more breeds being recognized. I'm still waiting for Cheetahs to be recognized as house cats. If you thought training a dog to get a beer was clever, try a cheetah, it will bring it faster than you can get up from the couch.

How would you rank these cat breeds? Which one wins this makeshift pet pageant? Is there a breed missing? You be the guest judge.

Uncanny Interventions
By Dialecticdreamer/Sarah Williams
Part 5 of 7, complete
Word count (story only): 1315

:: Part of the Strange Family series, in the Polychrome Heroics universe, this story takes place at some point after Genna, Saul, and the others arrive at the Can. It will be clear to readers why Hatter could not be more specific when discussing matters. ::

:: Pay Special Attention: Black hat missions against WORSE people. Mentions of human trafficking, dog fighting (only in the past tense), other criminal actions. Injuries to an adult, kidnapped children (who are physically unharmed), and a laundry list of reasons to dislike the head of the trafficking ring. Please skip this story if the negativity of these issues outweighs the rescue of kidnapped individuals and the dismantling of a human trafficking ring. I have tried to handle these problems gently, but this is NOT gentle fiction. There will be other, gentler stories in the set, but the aftermath of these events will include some heavy topics. ::

“Usually, yes. Think about it from a purely financial perspective: it wastes time and energy to get replacement carers.” He waved at the room. “I think that mattress is his sleeping space, but… Look at the rest of this. He did everything he could to keep the kids not just quiet and out of the way, but happy.” He pointed to a round laundry basket full of cheap claw machine toys, or squeaky stuffed animals meant for dogs. None of them had plastic eyes, or dangly bits.

“For which I’m grateful,” Hun declared dryly. “But he’s still complicit in human trafficking.”

“You don’t know the whole story. Follow my lead,” Oliver snapped, barking the orders in French.

Today is cloudy and cooler with intermittent rain.  I got out to plant some milkweed seeds.  There's a patch by the edge of the prairie garden with a bunch of thistles.  I'm hoping to let that grow, and mow just beyond them, in hopes they'll seed into the newly mowed area for next year.  So I added some milkweeds too.  We used to have a bunch of these, but now it's mostly goldenrod instead.  :/

I fed the birds.  I've been watching the goldfinches today.  They keep getting chased off the thistle sock by the house finches.  Also there's a robin building a nest in the birdgift tree.

I was noting, in the middle of the Hudson Antique Mall in the middle of a weekend trip this past weekend, that it seemed like we — T and I and our Troy friends the McPivins — end up spending a lot of our visits looking at other people’s old junk.
