Avocados and Dogs

Today is National Guacamole Day and I'm totally excited about that. I never ate avocados, in fact, I would throw a teeny little fit if the server forgot my request for no avocados and I had to move them to the side of the plate. After my car wreck, I could not get enough of [...]

All I Have To Do Is To Listen

My friend went back to Seattle yesterday after three packed days of visiting me. We talked and told old stories and mentally revisited Hawaii together.

Bernie the Best

The bad news is I started today with nearly 400 emails in my inbox. The good news is that I am down to 220. I'm finding all sorts of cool stuff and along with a few things I wish I had posted when I got them. Sincere apologies to Robin Madrow who sent me this [...]

The Debate Continues

Yesterday at the dog park I overheard two people talking about where to adopt a dog. At one point a woman began raising her voice in opposition to NEW PAWSibilities being a viable place to adopt dogs. "They are malnourished. They cough and are sick and are terrified. They are untrainable and they won't fit [...]
