Why Are You a Good Friend

You Are a Good Friend Because You're Accepting
No matter what a friend says or does, you try your best to understand it.
And your friends feel like they can tell you anything. You don't judge.

You know that friendship is a journey - with a lot of ups and downs.
If you and a friend grow apart, you get over it quickly... and leave the potential for future friendship open.

You tend to have many friends from many walks of life. Anyone you meet is could become a friend.
In fact, you are especially interested in people who are a little different than you. Seeing life from another perspective is something you cherish.

Your friends need you most when: They can't turn to anyone else with their secrets

You really can't be friends with: Dogmatic, stubborn people

Your friendship quote: "Love is blind, but friendship closes its eyes."

ARGH, A Pirate I Be

My pirate name is:
Mad Mountain Eric
Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You tend to blend into the background occasionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!

What’s in a name?  Ok I changed it to be what I wanted, but the rest is from the quiz!!!!!!!

Off to Relax and Unwind at the Pub!

Dante’s Pub that be, a place for those of the creative nature and artistic spirit.  What am I   doing there you ask?  Simple, rejuvenating my soul with a little fun and frivolity, among friends new and old.  A friendly pub open to artists, and yes writers are considered artists to these fair minded people.  Come on round, visit the pub, bring your ale or spirit of choice, and enjoy the friendship.

It’s all part of the Artists Challenge, a brand new web sit, where artists are welcome to submit their work in a theme based competition.  See they impressions and interpretation of other artists. Most of all, enjoy the artwork.

RSTMB Broke the 150 Mark

Tonight, I posted the 150 th article on Ruminations of a Small Town Mountain Boy.  It’s hard to imagine that I have made that many posts, but after adding up the archives, that’s where it stands.  Not too bad for half a years worth of blogging.  Of course it’s no comparison to those that did the 365 challenge, like LouCeel.  Posting at least one article every day for 365 days straight, no mater what. That takes some serious dedication, and I’m not sure I could do it.

May 15 th. will be RSTMB’s one year anniversary, I’ll have to come up with something good for that day.  It’s not that far away.

Alas, a fair, fun, and receptive place for those of the creative nature.  A Private club for the artist.  A place to rest relax, and imbibe of the creative cup.  Bring your brew, join in the party or sit back and view from the safety of the shadows. 

The Pub Wench, AKA Vikki and Master Mike have created a forum, for those of the creative nature, known as artists. Dante’s Pub is a private club, so go by Vikki’s blog at Red Chair Gallery  to view the invitation, or to request admittance.  It is all part of The Artist Challenge, a new web site developed to promote the challenge started by Vikki and Mike.   Then as The Pub Wench say’s,

"Abandon all hope ye who enter here. Pull up a chair and be of good cheer."

The artist awaits you.....

Support the Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission.

For blog--VEFM--Logo Px-sized to fit How many of you are pet owners who have had a veterinary emergency on a weekend, or after regular business hours.  The average Veterinary Office does not have an after hours service or emergency service.  Many Emergency Veterinary Hospitals have been established because then need was recognized.   Most are only open on week ends, and after normal business hours. 

If you have ever had to take your pet to an Emergency Vet, you know all too well the costs involved.  If you haven’t, let me explain.  It usually is three to four times more expensive than a normal Veterinary visit.  Also they usually require payment up front, prior to performing any treatment.  There are options out there to help pay these costs, like Care Credit.  But some people simply don’t qualify.

Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission is a non profit organization set up to assist pet owners facing these troubling times.  Their web site explains many of the options available to the public to help pay for emergency pet treatment.  They are hoping to be able to assist once all other options have failed. The thing is, as a non profit, they rely on the generosity of others to help.  So I’m asking that people go by their web site, and check out the organization, then if possible, give a donation, pay it forward if you will.
