For the Health of It ~ Treat Tuesday

For the dog owners who maybe read my blog :-). Always nice to remember our fur-babies during the holidaze. Thank you to Tails Around the Ranch for this post.

Commercial vs. Homemade ~ Always a dilemma isn’t it? We want the very best for our pups and sometimes we think we don’t have the time. I can tell you this is one of the quickest handmade treats you can make. Not only is it quick and easy, it contains healthy ingredients too. We’ve shared homemade snacks made with peanut butter before, but this one has the added benefit of banana. I don’t know about you, but my best intentions of using the beautiful, yellow fruit before it gets too ripe seem to fail on a regular basis. What do you do with that last banana that is past its prime? How about making some of these?

Oatmeal Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 medium, peeled and quartered banana
  • 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350º F. Pulse oatmeal, banana and peanut…

Net Neutrality – a quick info graphic.

Your internet connection might slow down after December 14th. On that day, the FCC will vote on Ajit Pai’s proposal to reverse Title II in the Communication Act. Title II ensures that the government monitors all ISPs, so they cannot throttle your connection or charge you more money. If Ajit Pai’s plan passes, then internet … Continue reading Net Neutrality – a quick info graphic.

38 ways you can finally stop being a D*ck

A wonderful post today at Ends and Beginnings. I’m adding a few of these to my daily list. Please join me 🙂

Thank you.

Ends and Beginnings

I subscribe to an online magazine called the Elephant Journal which describes itself as “it’s about a mindful life”. 

This online journal is one of many, too many, that I get on a daily and weekly basis about Buddhism, liberal Christian thought and mindfulness. Honestly I get so many I rarely read half of them but this particular email headline caught my attention; 38 ways you can finally stop being a D*ck

Here is Via Shivani Vyas, who wrote article, list of 38 suggestions;

Communication:

1. Opt out of engaging in road rage. If someone does happen to show you their lovely middle finger, communicate the peace sign in return and just smile.
2. Be firm but courteous to telemarketers. Remember they are just doing their job to pay their bills.
3. Write a thank you card and mail it to someone who has helped you in any way, big…

Roundabout Forty

I’m participating in NaNoWriMo this year. Will I get to 50,000 words by the end of this month? I doubt it. I’ve learned that when I turn writing into a “job,” strangely enough, it starts to feel like “work.” Quite frankly, I don’t want that. I have a job. (More than one.) However, I do enjoy the camaraderie of being a NaNo participant. I like seeing all my writer buddies working away at their craft. As long as I’m writing for my own enjoyment, even if I don’t make it to 50,000 words, I haven’t lost anything. I’ll still have my words and chapters, more words and chapters than if I hadn’t participated. Plus, I really would like to write a novel. Something for me. Something I can be proud of.

I just read a great Louise Penny Interview last night, written by herself! It took her 45 years to write her first…

The Overwhelm

One business, two passions, three ways to showcase them; two social media platforms I don't know how to use effectively; marketing; networking; "please come to my event, it's free" (begging); event organizing - why do small spaces cost such large amounts of money? Finding (paying for) the right words to convince people I really do … Continue reading The Overwhelm
