What to Give a Child in Need

Happy Thanksgiving! While many of us Americans will be gathering ’round with family and friends sharing a huge meal and lots of gratitude, we’ll also be planning our bargain shopping strategies for this weekend.   Perhaps while you’re out and about you’ll want to pick up some items to give for a child in need. The holiday … Continue reading

Why You Should Skip the Holiday Gatherings and Go Skiing Instead

And just like that it’s time to start dreading that most perfect, and perfectly awful, of times- the holiday season. For those of you who will spend the next two months in a euphoric stupor of holiday magic, this post is not for you. Move along, please. As for the rest of you, show of hands. How … Continue reading

Memorial Day: How and Why We Remember

Monday is Memorial Day in the United States. It’s a holiday that signifies for many of us the beginning of summer. Schools are either already out or are soon to be for the summer break. Workers are planning their summer vacations. The weekend is marked with sales, especially at home improvement outlets, as this weekend … Continue reading

Happy Whatever it is You’re Celebrating Today!

Chag Sameach to my Jewish friends, and Happy Easter to my Christian ones! No celebrating in this household. The state of Florida does not recognize either as a state holiday, so I’ll be at work. Not that I’d be celebrating anyway. No egg hunting here. No sunrise services. No Seder. No money spent on the … Continue reading

Give Some Love to Your Dog

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and nothing tells your dog you love him or her like spending lots of money at the pet store. In case you didn’t pick up on that, I’m being facetious. Let’s be real, here. Your dog could care less that it’s Valentine’s Day. So, no, I’m not going to publish any … Continue reading

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.

Dear Santa: Please Send Kyjen Toys!

Dear Santa: Christmas is coming, and I can hardly wait! Could you please send me some Kyjen toys this year? I LOVE Kyjen toys! They make toys that are fun, but also require some thought.

Tacky Gift Ideas: Music for Dogs

So last week I told you about TV for dogs. But if dogs don’t watch TV, then music must be a major component, right? So maybe we can just skip the TV channel and buy a CD to play while we’re gone to work. Do they make music for dogs? Of COURSE they do! While … Continue reading

Tacky Gift Ideas: Television Programming for Dogs

Thanks to crafty marketing and sappy bloggers like me, the average human is just as guilt-ridden about how they treat their dog as they are about their children. To be sure, marketers LOVE it that many of us call our dogs our kids, and refer to ourselves as parents. It humanizes the animal, and prompts … Continue reading
