About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what matters...or not

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A sick woman in Orleans, MA began stalking me in 2007 on Myspace. Since that time, this woman obsessed over me to the point of having the police come to her home and threaten to confiscate her laptop. She is a racist and anti-Semite.I could no longer blog freely, knowing this nutbag was just going to take the photos I'd post and put them on a child exploitation website.

This site is only up for the information it has that others might need to know about. That information is about "Seal Shepherd" aka Michael McDade, Kat McAboy aka Marilyn McAboy and Veronika Hompo, a self-proclaimed Nazi.

I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

This blog is no longer used. I've retired it for the most part unless something very important comes up.

White Post Farms — 8.26.2010

White Post Farms is a great place to go to with your little ones. I've been taking my son since he was two, and he LOVES the animals. Hey, I love the animals! We pack our own drinks and lunch and head out to Melville, NY. It's really quite close to Nassau County and Queens, so don't let "Melville" keep you from going. It's two seconds, literally, off the L.I.E., but I take shortcuts via Hempstead Turnpike and Bethpage State Parkway, or Hempstead Turnpike and then a cross-over north to... oh, you get it ;) It's easy.

It's an enjoyable place to go to for even a couple of hours if not a whole day. They have plenty of animals and activities. The reason I bring my own food is because the food is a bit pricey there and a deli counter really doesn't cut it for me and my son, but the produce is fabulous and locally grown. I think some of it is grown right there at their farm. They have some home baked breads and pies, but we passed on them for fresh sweet corn and organic snacks for Harry's school lunch pack.

Taking your child to a farm is a great way to teach your child kindness towards animals. It shows your child that animals are not just things, but living beings that have feelings like they do. Kids can see that they are happy or feel grumpy, get excited, bossy or pushy, and they see the animals being loving, as my son saw when we watched the piglets with their mom and the mother goat with her kids. Harry even thinks he heard some animals laugh. Hey, you never know.

Teaching children to respect animals from an early age is one of the greatest things you can do for your child. Once they respect their family and peer, and then animals, you have a little one who has already learned kindness, caring and feelings towards others — and not just other humans. Hopefully they will then teach this to their friends. Children need to know that animals have feelings, and it's not just their dogs or cats, but all animals.
