 Article Title :: Introduction to Collecting Elephants
Introduction to Collecting Elephants There are many facets to collecting anything, and elephants are no exception. For example, there are some interesting myths and stories related to collecting. The most common is that one should only collect elephants with their trunk up - I don't personally believe it, and some collectors actually do the opposite. A myth borne of the Feng Shui craze is placing elephants near the entry of you home, facing in certain directions. The lore and myths of elephants and some aspects of collecting elephant-related things are captured in: "An Enchantment of Elephants" by Emily Gwathmey, and: "elephant ancient and modern" by F. C. Sillar and R. M. Meyler. Why colle  (read full article)

 Article Title :: How long will your pet live?
The pet food industry, a billion-dollar, unregulated operation, feeds on the garbage that otherwise would wind up in landfills or be transformed into fertilizer. The hidden ingredients in a can of commercial pet food may include road kill and the rendered remains of cats and dogs. The pet food industry claims that its products constitute a "complete and balanced diet" but, in reality, commercial pet food is unfit for human or animal consumption. "Vegetable protein", the mainstay of dry dog foods, includes ground yellow corn, wheat shorts and middlings, soybean meal, rice husks, peanut meal and peanut shells (identified as "cellulose" on pet food labels). These often are little more than th  (read full article)

Most gardeners do not take the extra time to clean and sharpen their tools mostly because either a. they don't understand the importance of it or b. they don't know how. Hopefully this article will help you with both. The main reason why it is important is that when a pruning tool, like a shear or a lopper, is sharp you get much cleaner cuts which is important to the healing of the tree or plant. Immediately after making a cut on a plant, it starts to ooze sap or resin. This is the plant's natural protection remedy to provide a shield from weather, fungi and ins  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 10 Things to Consider Before Getting a Dog
1. Are there any size or weight restrictions on dogs within your condominium or community? Many won't allow dogs over 30-pounds. 2. Do you keep your home very warm? Some dogs are bothered by warm room temperatures. A Chihuahua would be a better choice than Shih Tzu in that case. 3. How much dog can you lift? A Pug is a happy-go-lucky companion but may weigh 18-pounds while a Yorkshire Terrier usually doesn't exceed 7-pounds. 4. How much grooming can you do? If arthritis is a problem, avoid longhaired breeds such as Pekingese or Maltese and look at short, smooth-haired dogs such as Toy Manchester Terrier.

 Article Title :: 7 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Animal Shelters
1. "No-Kill" Shelters Aren't Totally In the website words of one of the first no-kill shelters, The San Francisco SPCA: "(We)guarantee to find a home for all San Francisco's adoptable cats and dogs - animals that are healthy and free of serious behavior problems.

Tax Supported Shelters Can't Turn Down Anyone No-kill shelters have been criticized for skimming the cream of abandoned pets and letting public, tax-supported shelters deal with all the sick, aggressive and elderly animals.

 Article Title :: Digital Photography, Is It Right For You?
Lately, people have been asking me the same question over and over, "Should I buy a digital camera?" And for everyone that asks, I have the perfect answer. Maybe. There are many factors that go into the decision about going digital, not the least being whether you are a professional or amateur photographer. You need to ask yourself how you will use your photographs. Will they be for your website, magazine articles, stock agencies, advertising or something else? You then have to do some research and see what each of these markets asks for. Stock agencies love digital, as do many ad agencies, but most magazines want slides. Do you want to stay with film? Great. Film still gives better image  (read full article)
