Morning Edition - 6/17/05

The Mirror Has Two Faces; And So Does The Kitty
Gemini, a newborn kitten in Oregon was born with two faces. That means the bundle of joy has two mouths, two noses and four eyes – this, without glasses! Although the kitten was only given a 10% chance of survival by area veterinarians, she is still holding on. Experts say that tissue between Gemini’s mouths will have to be removed if she survives to her second month. Gemini was born to a new breed of cats this breeder says are miniature cats – they only grow to be 4 lb. adults. The mother is a miniature cat, while the dad is a normal sized cat. To date, this is the only report of a mutation of this kind in cats.

Some Like It Hot
Recently, temperatures in the northeast reached into the 90s with humidity making the sticky heat feel like 100 degrees, but folks in India are experiencing REAL heat; we’re talking 122 ACTUAL degrees! Preliminary reports show that over 130 people have died since the heat wave began over a week ago.

My Heart Belongs To Daddy
This Sunday, June 19, is Father’s Day. My own dad visited me last month and I had the honor of spending quality time with him – something we didn’t do very often (or comfortably) when I was growing up (I know, TMI). Now that I’m older, I’ve learned to appreciate my dad and his efforts to give his all to his family – albeit a very conservative and stern effort. My dad turned 62 this year and I can see a man who loves his wife, adores his children and has proven to be everything I hope to become. Happy Father’s Day Daddy!

Please post your questions for our afternoon On Blast in this Morning Edition’s Comments.

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Do you think women who were raised with a father in the household are more stable and have better relationships than women who were raised by a single mother? And when I say father, I mean a positive role model (working, paying the bills, respecting the mother, etc.)?

Good One Ms. LLL,


A women who is raised by a father who is a positive role model;loving;caring;responsible;and emotionally interactive, will idolize men like him,
and more than likely seek out parteners like him. The relationship between her mother and father will definitely determine her point of view where relationships are concerned.
