Following the passing of the village's venerable GP and unofficial vet, Dr Carter, Rusty, the golden retriever, agrees to run a daily clinic from the Old Shed in his garden. Mercifully, he is assisted by Snowy, the demure, white Persian cat and Monty, the cheeky and mischievous marmoset.

It had been a great day. Perhaps the Best Day...
A seaside village many years ago.
A boy makes a new friend who says he has always wanted to come to the seashore. This is his last wish, to see where the world ends and the blue begins -- because he is dying.
"Then we should do something fun today," the younger boy announces. Fun! With all the doctors and hospitals, there's been little time for fun. But what should they do?
Flying a kite is great fun on a windy day. But first they must make their kite. And they'll need supplies. And the money to buy them. And they will have to get around all the grown-ups who might stand in their way.
And so this never-to-be-forgotten day begins.
This is a story of friendship. Of first loss. And of seizing the day.

In order to advance their various causes and concerns, these groups hire individuals or firms called lobbyists to work on their behalf to influence the decisions of state and federal lawmakers.
Lobbies have been a part of American history ever since Benjamin Franklin appealed to Britain's Parliament to remove a tax on stamps in 1757. The right of any person or group to "petition the government for a redress of grievances" was and is protected by the first amendment, remembering the British government's refusal to listen to the grievances of the American colonists, which brought on the American Revolution.
Today, however, many lobbying activities have exceeded the boundaries of Thomas Jefferson's original good intention and often involve the inappropriate use of money and influence to gain advantages that are not always in the public interest. Although lobbyists have the right to appeal to and advise our legislators, only our elected officials have the right to actually write our ...

The buttheads have landed -- and they're trying to wipe us out!
My best friend Lloyd and I had the perfect plan.
We started a blog to invite aliens to come to Earth and hang out -- but only with us. That way, they wouldn't have to meet any boring world leaders or get cut open by scientists or anything like that. We'd just chill out, eat junk food, and play video games together. Sweet, right? And it worked! Two aliens showed up one night in the bathroom of my favorite restaurant, and we snuck them home to my room.
The problem is, they're total buttheads! Literally. They have butts on their heads, and they talk in farts. They're rude, disgusting, and they love Earth so much, they just invited 70 billion of their friends to join them here.
Now it's up to us -- two sixth graders with B-pluses in science -- to save the planet from the sickest extraterrestrials in the universe. (Preferably without my parents finding out.)
Sorry, everyone. Better get used to talking out of your ...
