THursday, August 30

Our visitor, Peekaboo/Nancy has arrived. It's been wonderful to meet her. The cats and kittens are also enjoying her visit.

We have lots of information to pass on today.
Plans are rolling along for our Catstock event. It is 9/22. The carnival is from 2:30 to 5:30. Mike, who will be doing the concert, will come out during the carnival and sing a couple songs in the afternoon. Then the real concert will be from 5:30 to 6:30. He is also doing a mini concert for the webcam viewers on 9/21 at 6:30. He will sing a few songs, just for our viewers! Just this week, his local newspaper in San Clemente CA, did an article on Mike and his journey to Ohio for this concert. I've posted this in the facebook pages.

FFRC has a new on-line store! It's at Zazzle. Goss/Linda has designed this and has done an awesome job. There's LOTS of items on Zazzle that are Catstock and Be An Earth Angel related. FFRC gets a portion of each sale. Check it out at:

As of last night, we have officially kicked off the 2nd FFRC Cookbook! This cookbook will not be printed until sometime next year, but recipes can now be submitted. This will be fun as it's wonderful to see so many names of our family, friends, volunteers, lurkers and viewers in a book together! And the recipes are great. If you'd like to submit a recipe, go to: Later, there will be a different site to give you to continue to submit recipes.

I received an update from Last week, we had 1,899 views on our FFRC website. The top 5 were: Betony, Butterbur, Campion, Weber and Ginseng

I also have a bit of information for you about Derecho, our little CH kitten. Kate has decided NOT to adopt Derecho. This is HER decision and I will, of course, honor it. I've known since Saturday of her decision, but waited these few days to make sure. Kate already has 12 cats and her dear dog, that they must move across the country twice a year. Even though she loves Derecho very much, she decided that he should be an FFRC cat. With all respect, please understand, that this decision making is closed and it is what it is. I would appreciate if everyone honors her request. Derecho is now known as Derecho Tucker Fauster FFRC Moss.
