    Dog Pedicure

    Where’s the best place to have my dog’s nails trimmed? I heard there are two women on W. Mission St. who clip canine nails for $5.00 and do a great job, but I have no idea where these women are actually located. Any good, trustworthy doggie nail-trimmer references greatly appreciated. (No pet shops, please, where live animals are sold.) Thank you.

    Edhat readers are curious to know where the best New Year's Eve celebrations will be throughout town. Below are their questions

    • A few friends and I are looking for a place to go for New Years to dance or listen to music. The catch is that we're OLD (58-62) so we don't want to go to a bar that's geared for the college crowd. Prefer a place where the entertainment starts like at 8, otherwise we'll fall asleep before we get out the door. Is there such a place in Santa Barbara or Goleta?

I called the Cat Doctors and they are booked for 2 weeks. Cat and Bird Clinic doesn't have a vet available today. There is a mobile vet but they are not in the area today. I am hitting a brick wall. Does anyone know of a mobile vet, as I would prefer not having to traumatize my cat with a car ride, which he hates. Thank you for any help you can offer.

    Getting Rid of Ants

    Okay, we have done all the "normal" things, the non-toxic things, to try to deter them--cinnamon, cayenne, also spraying with a water/rubbing alcohol solution. Everything clean. But they seem to be desperate--in cupboards swarming over a skillet that might have a trace of oil left on it, crawling into a crock full of wooden spoons, etc, next to the stove, in the bathroom sink and bathtub, etc etc.

    What I'd really like to know is if others are finding them more persistent than ever before, and if you have tips for discouraging them from coming in the house.

So I'm seriously considering closing it altogether, except for keeping the internet since we need it. I have a friend who has tried and likes Sling Tv (or any other internet television option) and I'm curious if any other edhat readers have tried it and what their thoughts are? Also, what speed or level of internet service would be needed for this?
