Every Dog needs a boy.
Hero Dog Protects Young Lost Owner Until the Child Is Found by Police: ‘Give That Dog a Bone’
Buddy the dog stood on guard and helped police locate a missing 3-year-old boy who had wandered off into the woods on Tuesday, according to the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities were first made aware of the boy’s disappearance when his frantic mother called 911 and reported that the child, who had been playing outside with his siblings, was missing along with the family dog.
Officers and a K9 unit from Suwannee Correctional Institution then began searching for the missing boy until they received a call from a neighbor that the child had been found, though Buddy the dog was being very protective and wouldn’t let strangers near his human companion.
Humans could learn an important lesson from a small boys best friend.

York to have the UK’s first car-free city center after the council backed plans to ban private vehicles.
UK – York to end all “non-essential” car journeys inside its historic city walls within three years.
Bristol has announced plans to become the first UK city to ban diesel cars by next year.
London – high-polluting vehicles entering central London already face an extra £10 ($13.25 USD) levy on top of the £11.50 ($15.20 USD) daily congestion charge.
Barcelona’s car-free smart city experiment. There is virtually no traffic and the space where cars would have parked is given over to play areas, trees and even a running track.
Superblocks is a radical plan to reclaim the streets from the noise and pollution of traffic.
There are just six superblocks so far, but Barcelona plans hundreds of others. They are made up of nine existing blocks joined together into an area which bans all but essential vehicles which are limited to 10 kph (6mph). Parking for residents is underground.
This begs to ask, will UK and Spain’s cities soon mandate only electric powered vehicles and electric powered public transportation with in cities?
Will this spur US cities to vote in favor of similar vehicle bans?
Happy 2020 Gardening Season

Ramen Noddle shoes? I always knew Ramen is widely used by college students and those with limited funds or time to cook, but I don’t know how this will work in shoe size 6.
This post started out as a rant about what Sager Creek Foods, Inc laughing calls Popeye spinach. My first can was opened and drained of it’s water. After draining I had about 1/2 can of spinach the remaining content was water. In my opinion not a very good quality spinach. Containing mostly spinach stems only having enough leaf to legally call this product spinach.
However it does work well as an addition to stir-fried vegetables.
** Ramen noddles with stir-fried vegetables.
1 – package noddles
1/2 cup beef or chicken broth per serving (add noddle flavoring packet to broth)
I use Wylie’s beef / chicken cubes because that’s the brand sold by my local supermarket.
Thin slice vegetables to stir-fry (your choice)
1 – teaspoon soy sauce used when stir-frying vegetables
1 – tablespoon pickled pepper vinegar
Cook and drain noddles, add to your bowl of broth.
Top with stir-fried vegetables.
Optional 1/2 cup cold or hot white or brown rice as a side dish.
Serve with a wine or beer that you like to drink.
Optionally serve with hot Green Tea.
Don’t forget to invite a boy or girl that you like spending time with.
Happy New Year

Ducks have won: French court rules they may keep on quacking.
Ducks on a small French smallholding may carry on quacking, a French court ruled, rejecting a neighbor’s complaint that the birds’ racket was making their life a misery.
The complaint was brought by Douthe’s neighbor who moved from the city around a year ago into a property about 50 meters (yards) away from the enclosure in the Soustons district where Douthe keeps her flock.
City dwellers that move to the country side should be required to certify in writing that they understand poultry, waterfowl cows and goat bells are common sounds that occur when living in the country and city folk will not be allowed to disturb their neighbors life’s with lawsuits that may relate to life in the country or that may effect farmers lives.
Remember Maurice? A judge ruled a rooster named Maurice was allowed to continue his dawn crowing, despite complaints from neighbors who had also moved in from the city.
