Cat and Dog Rescue -Adoption Shelter Pet Connection, as we know it today, began using foster homes in 1993. In 1996 the process of incorporating Pet Connection as a non profit, 501(c)3 organization was begun and our dream of having a shelter was put into action by non-stop fundraising. In June of 1997, we received our Non Profit status from the IRS and in October, we broke ground on our first shelter. Early May 1998 we were moving in to our cage-free facility equipped with cat trees, a washer and dryer, a couch, refrigerator, and windows for the cats to look out.

Towering Strawberry Shortcake — Stylish Layer Cakes from Tessa Huff (Image credit: Christine Han) Strawberry shortcake is the ambassador of summer, showing off juicy berries like jewels. It’s usually a humble dessert built on a biscuit, but here we turn it into a towering showstopper of cake, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries. [ My Blog ] Super Mario Brothers Aquarium I didn’t plan on showing the internet my Super Mario Brothers aquarium until it was completely finished and stocked, but someone on my Facebook page got a little excited and posted it to Reddit. You can guess what happened after that. For the past couple of months, I have been working on this aquarium after being inspired by a similar tank my friend showed to me a few years ago that had also circulated the internet. I was 23 and living with my parents at the time, but so clearly remember him posting the picture to my Facebook wall and challenging me to recreate it, knowing my crafty background. I promised I would, but not until I had a place of my own, as a 55 gallon aquarium in a small, second-story bedroom would be disastrous. In the meantime, I was able to acquire the tank from said friend, who’s mother originally used it to house a bearded dragon that had outgrown it.

Project: Wooden Salt Cellar By Mark Frauenfelder A couple of years ago I whittled a wooden spoon as a thank-you gift for our family friend Valerie, who was my daughter’s elementary school art teacher. Valerie appreciated it so much that my wife asked me to make another wooden gift for Valerie’s upcoming birthday. I thought about it for a while and decided that a salt cellar would not tax my meager skills.

Copycat Starbucks Gingerbread Copycat Starbucks Gingerbread ~ skip the trip to the pricey coffee shop and make your own moist and perfectly spiced frosted gingerbread. I got a sudden craving for Starbucks Gingerbread the other day, but I was way too busy to stand on one of their famous lines, and anyway, it’s been pouring buckets here in California, and I just blow-dried my hair… so there was no way I was going out in that. I wish they’d get that whole drone thing figured out soon, it would really help. But you probably already figured out that this story has a happy ending My copycat version is divine. It’s everything you dream of in a gingerbread, plus a heaping layer of cream cheese frosting. I say copycat, but in truth, it’s much much better than anything you could buy.

Jeff & Jeff's Pandemonium: May 2012 On a recent spring Saturday I had some time to kill and where better to kill time than Kmart, right? As I entered the depressing monstrosity my pulse quickened as it always does when I am heading to a toy department. Previous recent visits already suggested that I would find nothing of interest but then again no toy collector has ever found treasure without consistent persistence. As I entered the section I was startled by this horrible thing, which I set off by walking past it, Mind you it was 8am, I was the only person in the store and it was very quiet. I must be honest; Elmo scared the hell out of me.
