Aiding those who aid animals
Jennifer Kennedy of Morton has put up a Web directory that brings together rescue groups.
Jennifer Kennedy has five fish tanks, two dogs, one cat, and a pet project that helps animals across the country.
When the 34-year-old professional Web site developer moved to Morton a few years ago, she set up an office where she could work to improve www.RescueDirectory.com. The site, with around 16,000 visitors a month, hosts stories about rescued animals, a directory of shelters, and a feature that allows people to find horses, cats, dogs, and small animals, including potbellied pigs.
Jennifer is the partner of a friend and ex-co-worker from my days at Netaxs and at Coretel. She is nearly as bad as I am at the riveting game of horseshoes.
In other news, a top secret satellite is coming home.
A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and propulsion and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday.
The satellite, which no longer can be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said.
In other words, it's probably nuclear powered, and that's certainly a fine thing to drop on people's heads.
