This is an eerie story. Oscar the cat lives at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre in Providence, Rhode Island and has the uncanny ability to sense when a patient is near death. Oscar is unsociable...and spends its days walking the halls, trying to sense who is near imminent death. When Oscar curls up next to a patient, death, usually is hours away! Staff is so confident in Oscar, that the contact family members when he focuses on a patient.

All baby boomers will remember Arnold Stang, the milquetoast actor who stood 5"3', and wore horn-rimmed glasses, and was the original nerd of the 50's and 60's (perhaps with Wally Cox)- Stang died at the age of 93, and the memory of him makes him missed.
This is a quite deflating post....as I walked around my neighborhood this morning, enjoying the glow of the morning sun....i noticed a problem of epidemic proportions. Dead Santas! Yep. Those jolly figures were just lying in yard after yard, next to dead reindeer, snowglobes, and other holiday lawn displays. Can you imagine a young child driving with their parents..."Daddy- Why is Santa dead? Don't worry son, he will be alive tonight"
