NO ICE WATER FOR DOGS…PLEASE READ ASAP

Valuable information!

I had received this some time ago but was just talking to someone about how not to allow ice cold water or ice cubes in the water in extreme heat/humidity like we’ve been having or an over hot dog after running when they are panting heavily. They had never heard of this. So with that I thought it would be a good idea to post this as a warning and precaution in hopes this will be valuable advice to someone.

It did not work out that way…

Talent: Marisa Kakoulas and Margot Mifflin On Tattooing

Such a great piece on Cool Hunting today!

Veteran tattoo artists that happen to be female.

 

I love the part about the gypsy tattoo.  That female face – why?  Don’t get me wrong, these can be beautiful.  But I’m just curious about what that actually means to the person who wants that tattoo.

Here is another great piece of history from the article:  “Jesse Knight, the first British female tattooist, who started in 1921. She learned from her dad, who tattooed the family crest on her back. She was the only female artist in the UK for decades; she ran her own shop and built her own machines. A client Knight tattooed when she was in her 60s remembers her lighting a match and holding it out to prove she still had a steady hand, and she still tattooed into the ‘80s. Happily, a lot of her flash and photos of her work survive—you can see it in the book. She was a true pioneer.”

Shooting Up A Tattoo Shop Cuz They Won’t Pierce You….

So this woman goes to a tattoo shop around 10PM.  She asks for a piercing.  I can’t help but wonder what she wanted pierced.  They inform her that they do not do piercings.  She leaves.  She comes back with a dude, and shoots up the shop and a car. (I wonder if this is Trinity Tattoo???  Anyone know?)

This is Colorado, Sally.  Not Florida.  Go smoke a little weed and relax.  You can get a hole put into your body tomorrow!!!

Hope and Joy Amid Difficulty: The Lowland

magzmama:

I cannot wait to read this!!! I adore Jhumpa Lahiri. I feel like I slip into a trance when I read her words.

I’ve been a fan of Jhumpa Lahiri’s since reading her first novel The Namesake (2003), and I moved from there to her short stories, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning collection Interpreter of Maladies (1999).  I will read anything she writes.  So when her second novel The Lowland (2013) came out last year, I jumped at the chance to read it.  I quickly put my name on the library list, and then I had to wait many months to actually get my hands on it.  It was worth the wait.

The novel is about two brothers, born around World War II.  Udayan becomes a Naxalite Communist in India in the 1960s, while the Subhash goes to Rhode Island for school.  He stays in the United States and earns a Ph.D., eventually marrying his brother’s wife!  It is an interesting and tragic twist of fate.  His brother is arrested and executed for being…

He Has A Spider On His Cheek. But They Can’t Find Him. Oh! This is Florida!

I’m sorry Florida.

There really, honestly has to be something in your water.

Why can’t anyone find this dude?  I mean, he has a HUGE FRIGGIN SPIDER ON HIS FACE!!!

Playing Hard To Get/Catch?

I don’t mean to be rude, but I really believe that Florida needs a massive, massive overhaul.  Massive.  Am I right??

And in 8th grade my father is in a car accident and he is injured and he goes to the doctor and the doctor gives him pain medicine. And my father is a recovering heroin addict and a recovering alcoholic and my father doesn’t tell the doctor and the prescription pain pills with the prescription heroin in them that he picked up at the pharmacy are too much for him.

And my father takes the pills as the doctor prescribes and he takes those pills more than they are prescribed and in a few days those pills are gone and my father needs more pills and my father finds more pills and he takes those pills as the dealer prescribes.

And in 8th grade my father has not consumed alcohol for 12…

Avery Edison In Men’s Prison. This Should Not Be Happening Canada!

Avery Edison

 

It put my heart through the wringer reading about Avery’s misadventures in Toronto.  We haven’t heard from her for a bit now, and that’s frightening.

Please get up to date on the situation if you haven’t heard about it.

I’d Like To Repurpose Myself Into Someone…Who Can Repurpose Stuff…???

Far and away, my favorite on this is the piano.

Now, of course this would come crashing off the wall, sending the shih tzus flying for the door and me probably beneath it.  But it does look cool.

This one, below, is my second favorite, and I believe my friend Steve from The A Room Studios, should do it.

When I was about 8 or 9 years old, I discovered that I could hear voices. Afraid that I was losing my very young mind, I informed my mother, who told me that this was also something her grandmother had experienced in Ireland and that it was a blessing, not a curse. Listening to the voices made me realize that they were, in fact, telling me truthful, helpful and meaningful things. I got my first deck of cards around this time, and the way I taught myself to read was really by painting a picture and putting it together the way that only I can and do. Often I get little “insights” that help put the puzzle together. More than a reader and psychic…
