o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say I'm always fascinated by high-priced delicacies that you "have to acquire a taste for. " When it comes to food, I always fear "acquire a taste for" is code for "it will take you a while to get over the raunch. " But once you do, you have earned title to the ability to "appreciate" the item, and with that comes an air of sophistication that separates you from the masses, who think smoked oysters taste like pickled moths.

SOMERSET, Pa. -- After an eight-year hiatus in the wild, Daisy has returned. The Brittany spaniel ran off with her mother, Roxy, during a picnic in Trent eight years ago. The Williams family has been waiting for the dogs to return. Almost a decade later Daisy came back to the place where she decided to leave the family. "Somebody drove by on a golf cart and they took off," said Melissa Williams, whose Somerset family remembers the rambunctious 1-year-old Daisy as a playful pup. Now the dog is around 9 years old. Roxy has not been found.

This one's for all you people who have laughed at me over the years for raising my own beef cattle, because I didn't trust the meat coming out of America's factory farms. Well, maybe, not laughed outright, but looked at me funny, like your were wondering where I kept my tinfoil hat. “You're afraid of supermarket beef? Like what do you think's going to happen, hamburger is going to turn out to be made from some kind of PINK SLIME that they're treating with AMMONIA to quell the STENCH?

The shelter held its 18th annual "Walk for the Animals," followed by a pet fun festival, at Summitview Elementary School.
