6 Things We Learned This Week (animals, contests, Boston Bruins, blogging, funny)


Friday Fragments is hosted my Half-Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. Here we go:

New Website

Mr. Wonderful discovered a website where you can follow authors and it lets you know when they have a new book out. It's authortracker.com. I tried registering several but soon found that all authors are not included.

My Funny Dad, Harry

I decided to re-post some of my old posts on My Funny Dad, Harry blog because I started it back in 2007 and figure there have been lots of new bloggers since then who haven't seen them. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the share buttons added over there like I have here and on our book blog.

Dog Wants Kitty


This is the funniest video I saw this week and hope you will check out adoptable kittens at a shelter near you if you could give a couple a good home. This is kitten season and shelters get an abundance of kittens in the spring. (Our Spunky Doodle was born in the spring.) Kittens are very entertaining, amusing and grow into nice cats that become great companions! It's nice to get two so they can play with each other.

Favorite Vet Contest

I first heard about this America's Favorite Veterinarian Contest over at The Conscious Cat where you can read all about it. The deadline is June 1 and I intend to enter Dr. Hart (saved our first cat, Moe) and Dr. Busack (saved our sweet dog, Abby).

Blogging Surprise

I happened to look at our blogging stats this week and was surprised we actually had readers overseas so added the translate button widget. I think this is because of the different blog hops I participate in.


Bruins Pregame

The Bruins pregame show is something to see at their first game after the Boston Marathon bombings. The Fans actually sang the National Anthem!  Boston Strong!

Followers

I just noticed my Google Connect Followers widget is empty! It saws I have no followers! Did y'all quit following me all at once??? I still see it on other blogs. Oh, never mind, now they showed up again. Wonder what's going on!

Loved the video.....we have two dogs and one cat. They all get along well.

This whole terrorist thing is so awful.

Have a great weekend!

That video is HYSTERICAL! Thanks for the laugh.

I think with all the Google changes, it's making some of their other stuff wonky - glad your followers came back like magic! ;)
