Flea products and adverse neurologic events

I used to put flea products on both Tyler and Trinity because I was told I should to prevent heartworm. Tyler didn’t like it but Trinity acted like you’d put something horrible on her. She hated it and acted weird for up to an hour or more afterwards.

I probably used it for no more than a year before deciding the potential of them getting heartworm being indoor-only cats versus the problems she had with it outweighed the benefits and quit. I wish I’d never put the first dose on my cats!

It was years later before she had her seizures and several years after we’d seen her last seizures before she passed away unexpectedly after a clean annual checkup.

They suspected a heart or brain problem for her death and today I read this.

Historic Johnson Farms, WaterFALLing in HSF, shoulder@6 months and Florence

 

I think I’ve been to Historic Johnson Farms three times now but the first two were during their spring festival event. It’s open when the schools are open to the public to walk around for free and I met a photographer friend there to walk and shoot.  Continue reading

Simply WOW

I didn’t plan on missing all of my high school class reunion events but we’d already missed the water release once and I really, really wanted to see it and I thought I’d have time for both. The dam water release at High Falls at Lake Glenville on the West Fork Tuckasegee River near Cashiers is opened as a recreational water release just a handful of times each year. This year it fell on our anniversary which we missed because it was too soon after my shoulder surgery and it was released again on my birthday… Serendipitous? I thought so!High Falls timelapse (Large)-sm

Jennifer King

I listened to a presentation last night from Jennifer King and I was just as impressed the second time. I would love to take some of her photo workshops! She goes to the neatest places and scouts them all out ahead of time.

Both of her presentations were different but so good! She just seems so approachable and down to earth, plus she’s an animal lover with a cat, travels, and shares her knowledge.

The business portion of the meeting took quite awhile again and she had a three-hour drive home so I didn’t keep her to ask my two questions.

One about the GPS unit she uses and two, on the DOF calculator how that would work with a bridge camera for the wide angle close ups over a DSLR like my fz300 or fz1000.

If I’m still a member of one of the local camera clubs, I hope we get her back again.
