The Feminista Boot Helps Raise Money for Breast Cancer
Everything you ever wanted to know about rain gear, rain drops, puddles, and whatever else strikes our fancy on a daily basis.
I was working at our warehouse on Friday and while driving back from lunch I noticed a sign promoting a local candidate running for office. Said candidate had a very unfortunate name:
I read an article recently that the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) actually asked the co-founders of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream to stop using cow's milk in their ice cream and to start using.....
I doubt she would look this happy if she was eating her own breast milk!
I get a lot of inquires about how our boots fit so thought I would share a little information via our blog.
If you still have questions please feel free to email us anytime. We are more than happy to provide measurements or any other information that will be helpful.

Known as the Monnow Valley Burger, this concoction consists of an extra thick beef patty, two slices of melted cheese, tomato, secret sauce, pickle and onions sandwiched between a Krispy Kreme glazed donut.
In a word...(okay two words)
Oh, and it has 1,000 calories and 45 grams of fat. (NO!? REALLY!?)

I blogged awhile back about a van I saw in my neighborhood that advertised exorcisms. I missed getting a photo of that van but I saw another one!
Is it me or is there something really....strange...about a van with hearts on it advertising exorcisms?
Maybe this van is for the "love exorcisms"?
Are there really enough people around here in need of exorcisms that this 'company' actually needs 3 vans?
Or maybe there actually ARE different kinds of exorcisms...thus the different van designs.
The need for blood is great--on any given day, approximately 39,000 units of Red Blood Cells are needed. Accident victims, people undergoing surgery, and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer, or other diseases, such as sickle cell disease and thalassemia, all utilize blood. More than 29 million units of blood components are transfused every year. If you would like to donate blood, please use the locator below.

In a previous post I mentioned that natural rubber needs to undergo a curing process called vulcanization to make it a usable material.
I think John's dance partner's dress is made from Vulcan's red cape.
But I digress....
Although Spock is a Vulcan, he's not the dude vulcanization was named for. Sorry, Spock.
Rubber is used in so many different everyday applications. Rubber bands, pencil erasers, hoses, tires....and rain boots to name just a few.
So let us give praise to our naked, disco-ing Roman God of Fire, Vulcan, for the process named in his honor which allows us to erase a mistake, put our hair up in ponytails, drive safely and.....
Puddle Stomp in Style!

I don't drive a lot (home...school...home...Target....home....Target...well, you get the drift) so I only need to fill up my car about once every two weeks. The last time I got gas, I noticed it had gone down to $3.91 (and a few days later went down again to $3.89-dammit).
My dog, Holly, whom I have written about quite a few times in this blog, is notorious for bringing a variety of flotsum and jetsum into the house. Leaves, flowers, paper scraps...sticks being her favorite as those are oh-so-satisfying upon which to chew. And leave tiny, itsy bitsy pieces of stick all over my carpets. But better than my socks or the earphones for my iPhone...
While on our way to the beach this past weekend, I noticed that there seemed to be a lot of shoes lying willy nilly on the highway we were traveling on. I saw two separate discards on the 20 minute drive.
Or it could be people on the way to the gym to meet their personl trainers:
"I guess I can't work out today. I just don't know WHAT happened to my other shoe! I brought both of them with me. Sure, you can search my car."
Could it be from car accidents where someone was literally knocked right out of their shoe? But if so, why just sneakers?Maybe sneakers are only allowed on the sides of freeways, pumps on highways, Mary Janes on byways, etc., like a segregated discarded shoe society.

I received these two great customer emails and thought I would share.
I just received a pair of your boots I ordered for my 3-year-old daughter. She starts school next week and will be wearing a traditional private school uniform for the next 13 years. The only things I could show any personality with are things like her rain boots. We looked at a website to find a rain poncho that she really liked (not an easy task) and then found your site through Amazon. The boots are simply perfect and were really good quality and shipped quickly. They match perfectly with the Cow poncho she selected and she looks simply adorable. Your customer service department has been great!
I received my order on Wednesday. The boots are perfect, thank you! I wish I could have said more, because you are awesome! I will definitely be back to order some stuff for my kids. Thanks again!
