  • Jake and Julie and me

    Marley’s got nothing on my cats. For those of you who have seen the movie “Marley & Me” or read the book of the same name by John Grogan, you know that Marley isn’t a good dog. He chews on just about everything, doesn’t mind his owners’ reasonable requests and generally destroys everything in his path.

    Sounds a lot like my two cats, Jake and Julie.

    I’m not complaining, but seriously, how many times am I going to have to replace my blinds?

    It has to be difficult to move to a new country, and even worse when you don't speak the language.

    If any of you have ever visited another country where you didn't know the language, then you know at least part of what we're talking about. Now, imagine moving to live in that country.

    Bond was set at 10 percent of $10,000. If convicted, Tungate could be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.
