Kellogg's / Keebler

This week I, Sweet William The Scot, am going to another company in my Nati City. 
Kyla Scot I know you will recognize this line.

Yep here I am at a Kellogg's Plant parent company of  The Keebler Company.  In March 2001, The Keebler Company was acquired by the Kellogg Company.  Keebler has manufacturing plants in United States, Canada, Thailand, Indonesia,  and Malaysia. 
Oh if you only had smell vision.  It smells heavenly.
I just got to look around and find the right door.  The door I want is around here somewhere.
That was a steep climb up the path but I found the right door and it is open. 
 I hope they let me go inside.
Today I am meeting the Keebler Elves.  To be specific I met the led elf "Ernest J. Keebler" since 1970 himself. He told me to call him Ernie.  The elves have appeared in countless television advertisements throughout the years, shown baking their unique products.
In the commercials, the Keebler tree logo is often turned into the tree in which the elves reside.
 The Keebler Elves live in my city.  Do you remember the names of the elves from the commercials.
I remember Buckets who threw fudge on the cookies.  
 They are just the nicest elves to meet.  Why when Lee and I go by their plant we can always tell what type of cookie they are baking. 
  
When they were coming up with the new soft batch cookie recipe they had a no fly over air space enacted, so no one could take air samples.  No one is getting the elves' secrets.
We see these semi trucks loaded with their great cookies pulling out their driveway headed for your grocery all the time.
I did not get to meet Tony the Tiger he does not live in Cincinnati but I sure do love his Frosted Flakes.

Why Tony The Tiger wears a red scarf also!

Gorilla In The House.

Do you have a Gorilla in your house?
I, Sweet William The Scot, bet maybe you do!
Silly dogs, were you thinking I meant a real Gorilla.
Gorilla Glue.
Yep I have told you about other companies in my Nati City.
Well today I want to tell you Gorilla Glue is made in my city.
 
Yep The Gorilla Glue Company is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and has been selling Gorilla Glue® for over a decade. 
Why they are in South Africa, Australia, United Kingdom and many other places look at their web site to see if your country is listed. . 
Remember to use glue responsibly.  Don't get your paws stuck together.  And don't sniff the glue.

Kissy Face I Love You

 
Yep I, Sweet William The Scot,  planted a good one on Lee.
My kiss landed on Lee's lips and went right up her nose.
I did this all for Benny.  It was a Benny's Bucket list kind of thing.

Hair, flow it, show it

Lee and I, Sweet William The Scot, went to the Farmer's Stands.
Every community has one.
We got a half dozen fresh ears of corn.
Lee told me to go and shuck the corn while she boiled the water.
We sing a lot around our house when we work.




WAIT ONE MOMENT!
Hair lyrics say "Give a home to the fleas in my hair!
That is just not right!!!
We always buy our corn at the Snyder Stand. For nineteen years we visit him every Saturday morning during the Summer.  He always smiles when he sees me coming.  He calls me Wee Wiggle Butt because I give him the friendly wiggle.  He grows the best corn and it changes because in each of his fields he grows a different variety.
Two elderly brothers run this stand and we buy their squash and peppers.
We get our tomatoes from another man that grows Heirloom and Yellow Tomatoes.  He brings wonderful flower bouquets.
All summer long we eat fresh produce.
We got this beautiful card from our special friends Stella Rose, Maggie Mae and Angus aka Gussie.
They are special because they have caring hearts. 
The message meant so much to us.
The front has beehive embossed paper with little bees.  We love the color and little pearls.
We have been very sad lately.
It sure made our day brighter.
 
 Happy Labor Day  
 
Well as they say in show business, that's a wrap folks.

Lumenocity 2014

I, Sweet William The Scot, want to tell you about something that happens in Downtown Cincinnati.
Tickets for Lumenocity go within minutes and I am serious.
Due to the crowds the first time around (35,000 people in two days), the civic lawn is ticketed  though still completely free. 
Well I told you about Music Hall in another post.
You take a blanket and picnic basket and sit in Washington Park across the street, here in this picture.
THEN
The show will begin with  Cincinnati Pops performance conducted by John Morris Russell.
 
 After intermission, Louis LangrĂ©e will take the stage to lead the CSO as Music Hall becomes a canvas for digital animations choreographed to the music and designed specifically to fit the facade, crafted this year by local creative design and production company Brave Berlin.
 
The two pictures we took are really bad!  Lee does not have a camera that takes night pictures.
Lee says we cannot afford a good camera.  We just have a Nikon Coolpix.
A friend of ours did this video.  I hope you enjoy Lumenocity as much as we do. 
I love the Big Red Bird at 1:46 minutes into the video,
There are Owls, Fish, Frogs, Bats, Ladybugs, a Wild Woodpecker, Tigers, Rabbits, Deer and in the second half which is not shown hugh Human Dancers.
While all this is going on I, Sweet William The Scot, curl up on our blanket as tight as I can next to Lee's hip and sleep.
 These beautiful flowers are in the park across the street.
Flowers for Jazzi.
 As you all know Jazzi was my gal, my Scottish lassie.  Ever since I have been in Blogville we were a team.  My first ever post January 18, 2012 was asking Jazzi to the Valentine Dance.  Jazzi accepted to my surprise and dated a newcomer. We went to every Blogville Event together.
 My heart is broken for Jazzi took a big part of it with her.
I cannot say and I will not say
That Jazzi is dead, she is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of the paw
She has just wandered afar
Our last post together had the song
"All God's Creatures got a place in the choir"
Jazzi has found her place in The Scotty Choir.
Our song is ended, but the melody lingers on for me.
 
Thanks for being a friend

Rockin' Wills Is On For Safety Week

I am Disc Jockey, Rockin' Wills, The Music Professor, on Blogvilles own Non Serious Radio Station  HOWL 469.5 spinning the vinyl at the top of the hour.
  What hour what time is it?
Blogville is a buzz with Safety Week.
Oh the pupsters and kittenistas are HOWLING!
Have our sponsors gotten the Safety Message Across?
SAFETY IS OF THE UPMOST IMPORTANCE.
Now here are Rockin' Wills own top four safety tips.
 
A slip could mean a hospital trip, keep your biped from Slip slidin’ away in your poop.
Slip slidin’ away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you’re slip slidin’ away in  poop.

If you don't want to bet your life, don't gamble with safety.
Don't be licking those electrical outlets.

Remember it's better to arrive late in this world than early in the next.

AND ROCKIN' WILLS ALL TIME NUMBER ONE TIP

Remember don't let your peeps light a match when they smell your gas, or else you will be yelling  Armageddon!

Now for the latest news.  Blogville has a new band in town. 
They are in the station performing live today so let's hear it for
Mac Lowland Scottish Band.
HIT IT
  video
 
Rockin' Wills has got a joke for you pupsters out there.
An OSH Inspector enters a workplace and sees a sign reading “Danger! Beware of the Dog.” He then sees an old hound dog lying asleep on the floor. “Is that the dog the sign is warning about?” asks the Inspector. “Yes,” replies the foreman. “Before I put the sign up, everyone kept tripping over him.”

NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH 
Did you know us dogs can get Water Intoxication!
At highest risk are dogs that enjoying playing in the water for long stretches. But believe it or not, even a lawn sprinkler or hose can pose a hazard for pets that love to snap at or “catch” spraying water.  The excess water depletes sodium levels in fluid outside of cells. Sodium maintains blood pressure and nerve and muscle function. The condition has also been reported in dogs that over-hydrate during or after exercise.  After a period of hard play or exercise, use caution when your dog rehydrates. If he immediately laps up the contents of his water bowl, rest him for a bit before you refill his bowl.  Water intoxication progresses quickly and can be life threatening.  Smaller dogs probably show symptoms more quickly because it takes less time for an excessive amount of water to build up in their bodies.
Symptoms of water intoxication include staggering/loss of coordination, lethargy, nausea, bloating, vomiting, dilated pupils, glazed eyes, light gum color, and excessive salivation.
Treatment in dogs typically includes IV delivery of electrolytes, diuretics, and drugs to reduce brain swelling. With aggressive veterinary care, some dogs are able to recover from water intoxication, but sadly, many are not.
 
Well I know all you pupsters and kittenistas want to get to the picnic so BEAT IT out of the station now.  KEEP FROSTY!
I am closing down and headed for the Blogville Safety Picnic.
So till I hit those air waves again Smack Smack!

Keep Howling

Look What Crossed My Path

I, Sweet William The Scot, went out my door and there going across my driveway in my fenced in yard was something I had never seen.  I had to go and get Lee to show her.  Lee said it had been years since she saw one.
The Eastern Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina) is one of two species of box turtles found in the United States. It is the only "land turtle" found in North Carolina and is also the state reptile.
Ranger I found your turtle.
I think Mr. Box Turtle is looking at me!
Mr. Box Turtle was very interested in me and no matter where Lee sat him down he crawled right over to my side.  I will protect you buddy and don't worry Lee won't hurt you.
Box turtles are extremely long lived, slow to mature, and have relatively few offspring per year. These characteristics, along with a propensity to get hit by cars, make the box turtle a species particularly susceptible to human-induced problems.
  Don't worry Mr. Box Turtle I won't hurt you.  Well I guess he is a male.  Lee found this  "The females have brown heads and their legs have yellow scales. The eyes of male are red and the females are brown".
 Look me in the eye turtle, are your eyes red?  Yep red! 
 
Lee put him in a pot to keep him safe.

 The Eastern is bigger than the Western Box Turtle.  We grow something bigger than Texas ~ take that Sully.
 Box turtles have been prevalent in Ohio’s history for centuries. Native Americans used the turtle for a variety of purposes. Their meat was eaten and the shells were used for bowls, ladles, ceremonial rattles.
 
Well I got to let my turtle go so he can enjoy life.  They say they don't do good taken away from their stomping grounds.  Well if you stay here the kids for sure are going to catch you or a lawn mower will get you.  Turtles can live in a variety of different habitats, they are most abundant and healthy in moist forested areas with plenty of underbrush.
This is the perfect area for Mr. Box Turtle.
I am going to take him to 125-acre Stanbery Park,  where there is lots of moist forested areas with plenty of underbrush and is one fourth mile from here. 
Gotta go for a ride to take Mr. Turtle to a safer home.
You can get out Mr. Box Turtle.  Your going to live here now.
Hope you like your new home in the big woods Mr. Box Turtle.
Take a good look around Mr. Box Turtle.
Good job you are heading East into the deeper underbrush.
Maybe some day when we walk this path I will see you again friend.
Till then I will always have my pictures of us together.

Thanks for being a friend
