Amusing? Or deadly serious? You tell me!

I received the 'Budget Alternative' via an extremely circuitous route!

[UK readers will know that Mr Darling is the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Labour Government and that he has recently delivered his Budget for this year.]

Readers from other countries will probably find this just as pertinent to the way their governments are managing their finances...

This has NOTHING to do with the Lhasa Apso, or other dog breeds, so I am just leaving it up for the month of June - read and enjoy - we all need something to laugh [or cry] at in the current world financial crisis!

The 'Budget Alternative' follows within quotes...

"Subject: Fw: Budget Alternative

Dear Mr. Darling,

Please find below my suggestion for fixing Britain's

economy. Instead of giving billions of pounds to banks

that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned

bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the

Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 20 million people over 50 in the work

force.. Pay them £1 million apiece severance for early

retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Twenty million job openings -

Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new British CAR. Twenty million cars

ordered - Automotive Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -

Housing Crisis fixed.

4) They must send their kids to school / college / university - Crime rate fixed

5) Buy £50 of alcohol / tobacco a week - there's your

money back in duty / tax etc

It can't get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of

parliament pay back there falsely claimed expenses and

second home allowances

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone

you know."

Lhasa Apso ear cleaning

The easiest way to do anything - from checking your pets feet and claws to examining his or her ears is to first get your pet used to being handled all over! Make a fuss of them and handle their ears, look into them, examine their mouths so that later you will be able to clean their teeth, handle their feet and examine them... then give them a treat for being calm whilst these procedures are being done.

Examine their ears weekly, more often in summer when they may get grass seeds into them, and then this can start off an infection. [Once an infection has started it is probably best to take your Lhasa Apso to your veterinarian.]

Pet-Supermarket stocks vet approved ear washes, or you can go directly to your vet and ask for a recommendation for a product to clean your pets ears. Do be careful to use only approved cleaners, as some cleaners can set up allergic reactions in your pet and their ears can swell up at a frightening rate - then you will have to rush to your vet for treatment.

Remember when cleaning your pets ears that you should use a cotton wool swab with the cleaner on it - under no circumstances should you try to clean where you cannot see. You could very easily damage the ear canal, your pet might move at the wrong time and be hurt. Cotton buds should only be used, if you particularly want to use them, for around the ear flaps... but a cotton wool swab is far safer.

After you have cleaned your pets ears, remember they will want to shake their heads and remove any residue - this can prove messy! Once this has been completed you could also add a drop of Otodex to their ears to keep mites away.

Pet-Supermarket which brings you the medications for less - with savings of up to 70% off compared to Vet prices

Did you see my latest Twitter post about YourDailyCute and the Cat Baths tweet?

Do check it out... SO funny!

Whilst gardening I put some Blood, Fish & Bone fertilizer on some plants in the greenhouse. The cat went in and rolled in it... the smell was terrible!

The resultant bath was done in the kitchen sink, but she looked just like the second picture... and her thoughts were probably just about the same, though expressed in far ruder language with much hissing, swearing, plus teeth and claws!
