It's a Dog-Eat-Dog World

Have you ever heard the phrase, “if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas”? I think I fully understand that expression now…  even more than I originally thought.We have two dogs. Sami and Teddy. Sami is our Boston Terrorizer Terrier. She has always been the “problem” child. I think she feels more at home in the vet’s office than she does in our apartment, because she’s always begging to go there....more

Where No Man's Gone

Hmmmm, let’s see now, I have just been given a key that can open one building, room, locker or box to which I do not normally have access, how will I use it and why?...more

Fish on a Rampage

We have a 90 gallon aquarium in our bedroom. It's my husband's but I have grown attached to the fish. Like weirdly attached.  I named our pink sparkly one "Cher" just because I think it's hilarious to hear my husband and sons call it that.I like to pretend that when I walk over to the tank, the reason they come floating over is to see me, because they like me.

More Show Than Tell

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and even though we lived within city limits, it didn't stop my parents from getting their country on in our roomy back yard.  Basically my parents were doing the urban homesteading gig long before it was cool.  I'm a by product of the 70's and I lived it in every way.  Not only did we grow our own vegetables, we had fresh eggs, citrus trees, grapes and goat's milk....more
