The ANSWERS to all your questions and comments!

This blog is for all my "Denton News" readers that have commented on the blog or emailed me with questions in reference to one of my post.... here's to you... and these are in no particular order.
1) NO I AM NOT PREGO... I mentioned on Pierce's baby doll blog that he might be ready for a baby in the house and you guys went crazy... calm down... I was really just checking to see if you guys read the blog.... I guess you do.... this blog got the most hits for sure.
2) BLACK CHICKENS.... YES THEY DO EXIST...... they are called Silkie and I got the following information from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia online
A White Silkie hen, non-bearded
Country of origin - China
Skin Color - Black
Egg Color - Cream
Comb Type - Walnut

The Silkie (sometimes spelled Silky) is a breed of chicken named for its unique plumage, which is said to feel like silk. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black flesh and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot (most chickens only have four). They are often exhibited in poultry shows, and come in several colors.
In addition to their distinctive physical characteristics, Silkies are well known for their calm, friendly temperament. Among the most docile of poultry, Silkies are considered an ideal pet. Hens are also exceptionally broody, and make good mothers. Though they are poor layers themselves, they are commonly used to hatch eggs from other breeds and bird species.
Silkies most likely originate in China, but other Southeast Asian countries are also sometimes proposed. The first written account of the breed comes from Marco Polo, who mentioned chickens with fur-like plumage in his Asian travelogues in the 13th century. The Renaissance author Ulisse Aldrovandi also spoke of chickens akin to Silkies. Today, the breed is recognized for exhibition, and is fairly common in the poultry world.
Here is what it looks like with feathers.
De-feathered... yummy.

3) FISH REFLEXOLOGY... yes it does tickle at first and alittle scary but oh so much fun. It does work well but I think that it would be impossible to get your feet feeling like little baby feet after one 20 minute treatment.... I could use about 5 (and I get a pedicure every other week) but Blake could use about 50. Here is a video of Lisa when she first stuck her feet in the water to give you a good idea at what happens.

Fish Reflexology.... here is Lisa's reaction live... do you think you could do it?

4) THE BUTCHER... is where I get my meat. An Australian company that only sells meat and they home deliver... Fresh, fast and easy... I love it.

5) FOREVER 21 is my favorite store... my good friend Shelly pointed out that I am almost 31 and my favorite store is Forever 21... Here is why: 1) it is familiar to me, we have it in the states, 2) they have really cute hip clothes, 3) the clothes fit (everyone here is petite so all the local shops are too small), 4) cheaper prices, 5) I will forever be 21.
