Even though our Green Bay Packers did not go far in the playoffs, we still can watch the Super Bowl Football Game on Sunday. The Denver Broncos will have Peyton Manning, who might be in his final game before retiring, as quarterback. The Carolina Panthers have only lost one game this season and will be favored to win this Super Bowl. We will see which team is the better team. Enjoy watching the football game, as this will be the last game until August.
Being as we are now in February, I hope that Spring will be here soon. I know that we will have some big snow storms between now and then. If we are in Global Warming as they say, perhaps warmer weather may be coming our way. We now live in a roller coaster pattern of weather. Perhaps we may get another polar vortex and freeze outdoors. Being in Wisconsin, we have to get used to unusual weather patterns. Even the weathermen have trouble trying to predict our future weather. It is a small wonder why our "Snow Birds" leave Milwaukee for the Winter. It actually is better to try to get used to our weather patterns with our bodies. It becomes easier to fight colds and flu. As we adjust to unusual weather, we need less warm clothing around the house. We are better suited to handling cold weather than our "Snow Birds" after they return from their Winter vacations. You will notice that after you have traveled to a warmer climate, when you return home it is common to get a cold as you are no longer adjusted to the cold weather. Let's hope that Spring will be here soon.
My dog, Brownie, is 11 years old and has never been neutered. I know that male dogs like to mark their territory, but going potty shortly after I have taken him out is bad. He has damaged some of our furniture to the point where we have had to eliminate it. My daughter has told us that she can smell the dog urine when she comes inside of our place. We were told not to buy any new furniture until after the dog goes. We love the little critter and are in no hurry to get rid of him. What can I do to solve the problem of him having so many potty accidents? I am hoping for some suggestions to help us with this problem.
Now that our football season is over for our Green Bay Packers, we can enjoy the NFL ProBowl. This game will be on Sunday, January 31, 2016. Some of our Green Bay Packer players and our coach will be in this game. This game will be playing in Hawaii. Next week we will watch the Super Bowl. At least we made a strong effort this season, our season is over. Next year we will rebuild and hope to have a better team. Always look forward to the future. Someday our wishes will be answered.
This is a reminder and final notice of:
