(7) Michelle B. in NC: Goats in need of a home that are presently in the Candler area

Twins (white doe, brown wether), Nigerian Dwarf/ Pygmy cross, approx 5 1/2 months old (born in Feb 2016). Moose is the brown guy, is aptly named, is a stubborn piggy who loves to have his cheeks scratched and sit on your lap. He WILL sit in your lap, even if he has to knock down the whole world to do it. (The same applies to eating goat pellet food and getting to the hay first.)Bonnie is the lovely white girl frosted with gray. She has a wonderful temperament and is unbelievably sweet and cuddly. She loves to sit in your lap, and nuzzle her face in your neck as she takes a nap. She can also jump a 5 foot wall/fence without a problem, and will jump through a high quality electric mesh fence like an Olympic diver. She usually does this to search for her people, whom she loves to spend time with. Both goats are fine around well-behaved dogs and cats, and larger sturdy children who aren’t easily knocked off their feet by an exuberant goaty hello.The twins are very attached to each other, and Moose is protective of Bonnie, but not overly- they should not be separated. They like to race around the yard and head butt each other, which is always funny to watch.They would most likely benefit a LOT from being around other goats or gentle livestock/pets, as they are easily bored and get lonely without people around all the time. They are picky eaters, so in addition to grazing, their diet consists of pellet food twice a day, and good hay. They also love blackberries!Unfortunately, they don’t seem to realize the danger of eating some plants, and we’ve repeatedly had close calls where they almost ate rhododendren leaves, wilted wild black cherry leaves, and jimson weed- they seem to have no interest in the black nightshade that grows all over the place, thank goodness! They really need adult goat role models to learn from, and a safer environment with a fence that is high enough to contain them and without risk of entanglement. Perhaps the fence height wouldn’t be such an issue if they had more company, and less dangerous plants outside its perimeter.These two are really wonderful, and deserve to go to a home that can love them and keep them safe, where their needs and quirks are understood and cared for. We love them a lot, but would feel much better knowing that they were in a home that could give them what they need to thrive.(Anyone interested in the twins please email or text questions to 404-863-7217, thanks!)
(8) You Probably Don’t Need Dental X-Rays Every Year
(9) Can this brain exercise put off dementia!

A union strike at a pajama factory generates plenty of steam heat in this toe-tapping comedic love story.

Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7½ cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
