One of the things I like about Youtube is their use of association in order to offer interesting videos for one's interest.  Its amazing what one can stumble across on the site, and there are always new things being posted on a continual basis.  

Take this example.  I was rewatching a video showing
, letting them know it was time for lunch.  I always look to the right of the video and check out all the interesting videos offered on other web pages.  

I came across this one.  I'm a squirrel person, having raised two, and my Mother raising a third.  They make great pets, until its time to get out and pass on their genes to the next generation.  They can be neutered when they are young, and they will tend to stick around the house.  Mom actually had her little Margaret vaccinated and neutered at the Ft. Jackson vet clinic, and she lived for a good while before getting out and checking out the world for herself.

Anyway, I came across this, and learned a few things here.
