    UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL and a bit out of the frame...




Oh, I did a bad, bad thing! I couldn't help noticing that the human had all kinds of nifty kitty stuff on the table. Well of course I figured it was for me...I mean who else would it be for? All of a sudden she was putting all the goodies in a box! What the...
When she went into the other room, I decided to check out the situation and stealthily climbed up on the chair to see what I could deduce. There before my very eyes was a box of toys and nibbles...
well I did what any cat in my position would have done, I swiped a few of the goodies right out of the box. That will show her!
That's when I found out that the box was full of prizes for those darn cats in the fridge for wining our contest. Oops...

So I am here to say, "sorry, I am replacing the mousie I took out of your box with one without slobber on it. Once again, sorry".  I've been a naughty Noodle...

NEWS UPDATE;

It just goes to show what one little kitty can do! Just think, Governor Jan Brewer vetoed that icky bill and I'm sure it was all because she didn't want to lose her fuzzy hug from me...( yes, I am that adorable) Plus, I'm giving her an extra fuzzy hug for all the flack she is taking from her own party... you go girl! http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/26/politics/arizona-brewer-bill/index.html


It was just what we needed, a bill that would allow teachers, parents, babysitters and others... to legally "spank" kids even if it leaves bruises! The bill was defeated.

STICKY PAWS AND HAIRBALLS vs. KITTY KISSES AND FUZZY HUGS + NOODLE'S WEATHER REPORT...



" Hello, Dave here at WCATS, let's check in with Noodle at the weather desk..." "Hi, Noodle here, lets take a look at the map shall we... Well it looks like snow in Atlanta... hum lets go on over to North Carolina... so, just more snow. OK, lets check out New York City... oh I see where this is going... So, to sum up; we have snow, more snow and yep, some more snow...back to you Dave..."

Moving on...

It is my hope that I, Noodle am nothing if I am not open minded and as unbiased as possible... so I want to give a big fuzzy hug to Republican Governor Jan Brewer from Arizona for her determination to get health care to her constituents by standing up to her own party and expanding medicaid; http://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/arizona-medicaid-expansion-lawsuit-jan-brewer-obamacare

 
Sometimes there is justice even if it is small; A big fuzzy hug to this judge who denied bail to the gunman in the Florida theater shooting;
http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-florida-theater-shooting-bail-denied-20140207,0,1380543.story#axzz2sllaU3C8

Sometimes even your hero's appear to fail to live up to your expectations. Although I voted for President Obama twice, there have been many of his decisions that I do not agree with. This is one of those decisions...And so I am giving  the president a sticky paw for allowing food stamps to be cut as a part of this bill...there are children starving right here.
Who would have thought that the day would come when Jan Brewer got a fuzzy hug and the president got a sticky paw? Now that's what I call  being objective...
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/07/obama-farm-bill-_n_4747837.html


A sticky paw and a hairball too, to us. Yes you heard me right...
I honestly do not know what to say about this next terrible incident. I feel the urge to bring up gun prevalence in our society but I know that, that alone is not the answer.
I know that guns are a touchy subject but that we need to keep a dialog going, we need to find common ground somewhere... I do not accept that we as a civilized society can not or will not do everything in our power to prevent what happened in Aurora, Newtown, Columbine, Virginia Tech and all the other places to numerous to mention...these incidents are becoming much to common. This case in particular epitomizes a certain
sense of self righteousness we have seen developing in recent years. It is unbecoming of a great nation and it's people. If great is what we want to be then I think we all need to step up.

( as this is being written, the jury is deciding the outcome of this case...)

Even Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he was Governor, found common ground on a form of gun identification which was  put into effect in California not that long ago;

                   SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT THIS WEEKEND... 


                                    that's right, I'm sticking my nose in the nations business again!

 
 
So, I've been thinking about guns...how nothing gets done and we have tragedy after tragedy what seems like daily now and I think I've come up with an idea...
We wouldn't have to change the laws. No one would have to give up their guns. You could buy all the guns you want... we just raise the price of ammunition. I mean a lot, like one bullet = $100.00.
And there would be a tax, a big tax, so $100.00 + like 18% would be $ 118.00 per shot. If you purchase 30 rounds of ammunition that's $ 3540.00. (Right now you can buy a whole box of like 40 bullets for about $25.00 at Walmart.)
It just might help cut down on the number of shootings...
And, we could put all that extra money into infrastructure and securing our power grids so things like this don't happen; http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304851104579359141941621778
And at the same time it just might reduce the amount of gun violence. Hey, it worked with cigarettes!


Will the Affordable Care Act really cost jobs? See for yourself;

From American Idol to congress?
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/05/clay-aiken-congress_n_4729132.html

Just how broken is our justice system? Remember the young man who killed 4 people while driving drunk who used the defense of Affluenza... 
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/05/ethan-couch-affluenza-teen_n_4729821.html
What if we had a system where everyone had the same access to legal representation no matter how poor or wealthy you were? Thoughts?

You don't need to watch the Olympics to see some amazing gymnastics. Just take a look at congress!
Yep, they are at it again;
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/05/debt-ceiling-2014_n_4731544.html

An open letter to a customer from a restaurant owner in a difficult situation ( get the Kleenex ready )...

And lastly; today is the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles first visit to the U.S.A. which launched the
British Invasion. Thank you England, that's some mighty amazing music! We love you yeah, yeah, yeah...


Have a great weekend!
