Video: Dogs “Walk” Humans, Adoptions Rise

We've all seen ads for animal shelters and the Humane Society featuring sad faces of animals looking for their "furever" home. Yes, they can tug at your heart, and are quite often very effective. However, after you see them over and over, they can lose their emotional impact. With this in mind, an Australian animal shelter came up with a unique program in which the dogs do the "rescuing" of humans. Check out the video to see how this shift in perspective saved some 5,000 dogs.

Amateur Radio Has a ‘Field Day’ Last Weekend in June

Despite the Internet, cell phones, email and modern communications, every year whole regions find themselves in the dark. Tornadoes, fires, storms, ice and even the occasional cutting of fiber optic cables leave people without the means to communicate. In these cases, the one consistent service that has never failed has been Amateur Radio. These radio operators, often called “hams,” provide backup communications for everything from the American Red Cross to FEMA and even for the International Space Station. Victoria’s “hams” will join with thousands of other Amateur Radio operators showing their emergency capabilities the weekend of June 28-29, 2014.

Skeeter to Guest on the Refugio Country Opry

I'm very excited (and honored) to have been asked to be a featured performer at the Refugio Country Opry show tonight. This is the first time I've been invited to perform on this particular show; and while I'm the drummer for the Flag City Opry Band in Edna, and frequent emcee at the Crossroads Country Opry show in Victoria (where I get to sing a couple of songs, too), this is a first for Yours Truly. I enjoy the occasional opportunity to step out from behind the drums and sing in front of a great band like this one!

The Doctor Is In

One of the many things we've had to deal with since we relocated to Victoria from El Campo has been finding a Primary Care Physician for my wife Sweetie and me. When we lived in Arkansas, we saw the same PCP for eight of the nine years we were there. So, it's very important to us that we find someone who is patient (no pun intended), is up on the latest innovations in medicine, asks the right questions, and listens to our questions and provides clear, easy-to-understand answers.
