Car wash and money thiefs…

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Bill owns a company that manufactures and installs car wash systems. Bill’s company installed a car wash system in Frederick , Maryland. Now, understand that these are complete systems, including the money changer and money taking machines.

The problem started when the new owner complained to Bill that he was losing significant amounts of money from his coin machines each week.

He went as far as to accuse Bill’s employees of having a key to the boxes and ripping him off. Bill just couldn’t believe that his people would do that, so they set up a camera to catch the thief in action. Well, they did catch him on film!


That’s a bird sitting on the change slot of the machine.

The bird had to go down into the machine, and back up inside to get to the money!

That’s three quarters he has in his beak! Another amazing thing is that it was not just one bird — there were several working together. Once they identified the thieves, they found over $4,000 in quarters on the roof of the car wash and more under a nearby tree.

And you thought you heard of everything!!

This gives a new twist to the term “nest egg”.
And to think the phrase ‘bird brain’ is associated with being dumb. Not these birds. Share the story!!

Giant George – Huge Great Dane

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

World Biggest Dog Ever -Giant George, Standing at nearly 43 inches tall from paw to shoulder and weighing a staggering 245lbs. George consumes 110lbs of food every month, and sleeps alone in his own Queen Size Bed. David and Christine raised George from when he was 7 weeks old, but never expected him to grow so big.

The gentle giant, who measures 7ft 3ins from nose to tail, could be a prime contender to take the title from the former record holder, Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane who passed away from cancer last August.

Emergency Kit For Your Pet: What would you add to the list?

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Recent natural disasters happening around the world highlight the need to have emergency procedures in place for our own families.

Disaster emergencies can require being prepared to evacuate our homes from a short absence to a permanent relocation.

It’s disorienting enough for people to have to evacuate, however when pets have to leave, it is very disrupting.

Today, I came across an ASPCA article which lists helpful pet preparedness information. Below are some ideas from the ASPCA for an emergency kit to keep on hand for your pet. Remember, food and medications need to be rotated out of your emergency kit every two months—otherwise they may spoil or become useless.

  • A traveling bag, crate or sturdy carrier, ideally one for each pet (Pet Grab-n-Go Crate)
  • Pet first-aid kit and guide book
  • 3-7 days’ worth of canned (pop-top) or dry food
  • Bottled water, at least 7 days’ worth for each person and pet
  • Disposable litter trays (aluminum roasting pans are perfect)
  • Litter or paper toweling
  • Liquid dish soap and disinfectant
  • Disposable garbage bags for clean-up
  • Pet feeding dishes
  • Extra harness and leash (harnesses are recommended for safety and security)
  • Photocopies of medical records and a waterproof container with a two-week supply of any medicine your pet requires
  • Flashlight
  • Blanket (for scooping up a fearful pet)
  • Recent photos of your pets (in case you are separated and need to make “Lost” posters)
  • Your pet’s favorite toy
