This entry is part 16 of 16 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Things continue to be a bit of a mess here. At least as far as my physical condition.  There have been a few things that we had to do that had a pretty steep cost, and recovery from pushing myself that far beyond what I Continue Reading →

Dog’s Life: Ditch the Itch (Organic Anti-Itch Herbal Blend)

Growing puppies end up being itchy.  Especially giant breeds.  They are stretching so swiftly that itching is just a part of the process. Add to this general allergic response, and it looks fairly miserable. Our Raubahn puppy does not seem to be adjusting well to the plant matter in New Continue Reading →

Dog’s Life: Allerg-Ease (Organic Herbal Blend for Canine Allergies)

Our little-big-puppy, Raubahn, has had issues with the allergens in New Mexico since he arrived.

Organic Ingredients: Continue Reading →

Time-Lost Update Post

This entry is part 9 of 16 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: So…  been a while.  Completely unintended. 2016 has so far been the year of learning that I need to be a little more careful in how much I do and how often and when.  The body I live in is pretty beaten up, and it Continue Reading →

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Life still seems to be moving fairly fast.  Not sure if this is because of the new schedule, or because of the relative productivity we’ve managed, or something else I’ve not thought of. The days have been sailing by. The most notable event of this past Continue Reading →

Weekly Rambling (August 1, 2015)

This entry is part 2 of 16 in the series Periodic Updates

Day late, this week.  However, still the same week.  That counts, right? I even have a relatively good reason.  I was having a particularly iffy body day yesterday, and sort of fell into a book.  Which was followed by sort of autonomically picking up the second and continuing the tale… Continue Reading →

Dog’s Life: Ash’s Phoenix
