Are you Depressed?

In my opinion,  psychiatrists should first test their patients for nutritional deficiencies before writing prescriptions for Zoloftor for  antipsychotics, like Zyprexa.  Conscientious doctors send patients to get lab work done prior to prescribing drugs or increasing dosages.  There are times when people do need antidepressants.   However,  other times  spinach would go far to eliminateContinue reading “Are you Depressed?”

Redbird Moonshiner

My lovely daughter-in-law has the best taste in music.  I am forever learning about new musicians with whom I was not previously acquainted.  She posted this one on her Facebook this morning and I just had to share.  I told her I thought the style was like Eddie Vedder with a soda chaser. Enjoy RedbirdContinue reading “Redbird Moonshiner”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day….but wait! There’s more!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my friends, my family and my 200 fabulous blog followers (some of whom are included in the aforementioned categories.)  Today is the day when thousands of people from all over the world, put green food coloring in their beer to celebrate the life of a 5th century religious fanatic.  ButContinue reading “Happy St. Patrick’s Day….but wait!

Pets… (This is for my daughter in Dallas and my son in Houston)

I have had occasion to think of Texas a lot of late, as my loved ones live there, and it was my home for almost two decades. We lived in Houston, in a beautiful house on Hawthorne Street and had a number of pets during that time. Taddy, our Yorkie, came into our lives just before our golden lab, Stella, died of old age. Then, we bought Dashiel, the shar pei and finally, Boofus. Dashiel (or Dashy, as we called him) had a fatal kidney disease and only lived two years. We also had a big black cat named, Horacio. Horacio adopted all of our puppies and cared for them like little kittens….only Horacio was a male cat. Very bizarre, indeed, but I loved it that they all got on so well.

This video was taken at our Hawthorne house when Dashiel was a puppy. He was so unusual looking that when I had him in the front yard once, a woman stopped to ask me what kind of animal he was. She had thought he was a monkey! 🙂

I want to add that the soundtrack on this video is not the one that I put on it. This was uploaded in the days when YouTube was young and you could use any music you wanted. Times changed, and so did the whole copyright issue thing….so YouTube replaced what I had on there with their choice of music….so I’m sorry if you find this obnoxious, as I do. As soon as I can unpack my audio/video equipment, I will edit it to have something much better.

Ok….so sit back and enjoy this pet-friendly adventure with my babies in my old Texas hacienda. xoxo
