Gun Safety and Lots of Dogs

Yesterday I helped man an outreach booth for a group that promotes sensible gun legislation. I enjoyed speaking with people about their ideas of how we can put an end to the gun violence epidemic that is ravaging our country and terrorizing its’ citizens. I also interacted with a lot of dogs. There were dogs … Continue reading

So I Have This Idea…

I spent several days in Memphis. My current employer decided to send a contingency from the center of the state west to work on a project. So I spent three nights in the Crowne Plaze in downtown Memphis. By the way, it was OK, but I don’t recommend you stay there. It’s never a good … Continue reading

Living with Cats

I talked about how Rumpy is such a comfort to me since the election. But there are also cats that live in this home who are keeping me on the straight and narrow. I don’t have time to wallow in anger and hurt; I have two elderly cats with hyperthyroidism who are always hungry and … Continue reading

Going Vegan

I recently had my cholesterol tested. Though still healthy, the LDL number has creeped up, and it was recommended I start now to make changes to keep those levels from creeping higher. This is a big deal, because there’s a significant history of heart disease on both sides of my family. So I’ve ramped up my exercise … Continue reading

I’ve Partnered with Best Friends Animal Society!

I need your help. OK, so really, you’d be helping Best Friends Animal Society, but you’d also be helping me. What? Huh? Let me back up. Best Friends Animal Society is partnering with influential bloggers (They think I’m influential? How cool is that!) to get new members. What’s in it for me? If I recruit 100 … Continue reading

Puppy Mill Imports? Yep, They’re STILL Coming!

In 2008, Congress passed a law that prevented puppies ages 6 months and younger from being imported into the US. Why? Because there was no oversight of the way the puppies were bred or raised. Many were sick. They were inbred, meaning the likelihood of genetic abnormality was strong. Besides, why in the world would … Continue reading
