  • Excess levels of salt and fats found in pet food.
  • Just over a quarter of pets have suffered from stress or behavioural problems.
  • Three-fifths of vets are reporting a growing number of 'human style' illnesses and disorders such as diabetes and arthritis. [UK Pet Industry News]

I've used Yahoo for web mail service for years and ignored its other features.Yahoo also delivers a very addictive personal news aggregation service which will serve up all your news feeds, rss feeds and web stuff, all in one place, customized your way.

While Yahoo was polishing off the ultimate personal web organizer, I've been doing it all the hard way: hopping from one place to another for news via RadiolandFeedDemon, del.icio.us, Spurl, Flickr, Google...

Now that I have my personal Yahoo, I can add some feeds, read 'em, and have time to walk the dogs... amazing...

For webauthoring, FeedBurner does it all. With Feedburner, I spliced together my Flickr feed, de.licio.us bookmarks, and Radioland Dog News rss feed...
