If you ever thought animals had no feelings, watching this video will show you how wrong you are.  They do care greatly for each other and their young.   Let’s do what we can to stop their slaughter.  Hugs

Toxic Reaction to Insect or Spider Venom-Topic Overview

Filed under: Harm, Health, Nature, News, Questions — Scottie @ 11:42


I asked Ark if a person with allergies to insects would have a worse time with a spider bite.   I know my adoptive mother would have huge swellings and get serious reactions caused by sensitivity to any type of mosquito, gnat, black fly, or other small flying bugs.   Ark suggested I look it up and I thought that was a great idea.   Ron is also going to ask the doctors and care providers he works with what they know about allergies and spider bites.   Below is what I found on webMD.   So I guess the answer is it depends on the person, the insect, and on what sensitives a person has.   SO like while I will have an allergic reaction to a bee sting, I may not have any worse reaction to a spider bite than a person not allergic to bee stings.  I have to laugh, like so many things in life it seems the answer is only known when the event happens, if it happens at all.   I am sure at some point I have had a spider bite and not even known what it was.  Not that I want to test the theory.

Hugs and Best Wishes,


Bites and stings from insects (bees, wasps, yellow jackets) and spiders usually cause pain, swelling, redness, and itching at the site of the sting or bite. In some people, especially children, the redness and swelling may be worse and last up to a few days.  A few people have severe reactions to the toxin injected by the insect or spider. A toxic reaction occurs when insect or spider venom acts like a poison in the body. This type of reaction can occur from one bite or sting from a highly toxic insect or spider, or from multiple bites or stings from insects or spiders not normally considered poisonous.  Symptoms of a toxic reaction vary depending on the insect or spider, the toxicity of the venom, and the amount of venom injected. Most often, symptoms improve or go away within 48 hours. Although hives and difficulty breathing may occur in an allergic reaction, these symptoms will not occur in a toxic reaction. It is possible to have both a toxic reaction and an allergic reaction at the

Scientists: Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans – The New Yorker –

I love this.  Mak posted it on Ark’s blog.  It is incredible.   While yes it is not really a science report, it describes the situation as if it was.   Look at it this way, Jurassic World did not show real dinosaurs but it felt real correct?  Well to me it did and I enjoyed the movie greatly.   I also enjoyed this article.   Hugs

Milo loves boxes.

Filed under: Animals, My Life and Rants, Nature — Scottie @ 19:04

When Ron goes to a certain store all goods have to be put in boxes they have, or bags you bring.  It is the only no bag store I know.   I have to say the goods are OK and the store is popular because there is a big difference in price of goods.   So Milo gets a new box every week or so, or more than one.   This last he really has taken a liking too.   We call it the “can goods store” but they have a lot more than can goods.   Hey you have to save money where you can.  I found it interesting Milo almost matches the new floor we put down.   Milo is the oldest of our two cats.   Hugs

Such beauty and such diversity, such wonder on our planet!   Will we destroy it all?  Must we do so to be happy?   Somehow we have to find a way to live in harmony with the world we depend on, and we need to find a way to value that same world.   Many hugs
