My golden retriever breeder came over to visit baby Henry on Monday night -- such a lovely person -- and she recommended a very simple strategy to deal with ongoing puppy bities. Which on a number of occasions, despite my best efforts, had resu... Read more
It's Always the Comments . . . .
Wednesday, September 25, 2019      31 comments

. . . and yesterday's comments on my blog about "feeding the emotional hunger" were exceptionally helpful to me. So thank you. I probably needed to emphasize that (as always) I was blogging for ME. I was blogging about what works fo... Read more

As the Gears Turn . . .
Thursday, September 19, 2019      32 comments

Clearly, baby Henry (my golden retriever pup) has been thinking about stair climbing. Yesterday he'd left the kitchen and was somewhere on the ground floor of the house . . . when I called, he didn't respond. But that's because he wa... Read more
Convenience Foods
Wednesday, September 18, 2019      32 comments

My mum was very enthusiastic about early convenience foods . . . Jello, Campbell's canned soups, Dream Whip, margarine in those pouches with the "button" that had to be massaged into the white stuff to colour it yellow like butter (some kind of ... Read more

Saturday, September 14, 2019      56 comments

About 34 years ago, I was expecting my second baby. Quite sick, actually: morning nausea, fatigue. And with a two year old. Working full time teaching at a college. And for some reason -- related to business/professional connections... Read more
