Gift-Giving on the Cheap…. and a Giveaway!

Let’s face it, advertisers have us all convinced that we show how much we love our family and friends by how much we spend on them.

Apparently, I Was Wrong! Humble Pie is Served.

As you know, I’ve been quite vocal in encouraging people to not choose pets as Christmas presents. But it looks as though I’ll have to eat my words! Yesterday the Associated Press reported that the ASPCA is encouraging adopted pets as gifts for the holidays! WHAT? Are you kidding me? Sure, we’ve all heard the … Continue reading
