Today’s show is a New To You Satellite Sisters episode from October 15, 2008. Come on our road trip to cover turtle breeding, geriatric care, pets that can kill and a crazy calories quiz that goes horribly wrong.
We start with Installment 1 of Edna and Jim’s Excellent Adventure. Monica’s about to leave on a road trip with our parents to move them from Oregon to California. It was the beginning of a series of transitions we made with our parents. For those of you who have been through this experience, you know how difficult and unpredictable it can be. We enlisted a Geriatric Care Manager and did a great deal of research about caring for the elderly.
In other news, Lian makes the argument that Beverly Hills Chihauha should really be named Beverly Hills German Shepherd. Go Delgado! Monica has a list of the 8 most dangerous pets for kids. Lian has strong feelings about turtles and has tales of Galapagosand Yangtze turtles that need preservation around the planet.
Sheila has a list of the worst healthy foods and attempts a crazy calories quiz for Yum Brands. This does not go well. Later, she’s on the Cozy Couch: Perfumes that make women look slimmer! Smart new ways to remove water stains! Autumn candle therapy. Here we are with just a few weeks left before the 2016 election, so we could also use some candle therapy.
