My Favorite Things

Where do I begin to summarize my favorite things? There are so many.  My blog (or diary, as I prefer to call it) is certainly not a theme blog about one certain thing.  It isn’t only about travel, or design, or business, or food, or animals, or bathing (my favorite hobby).  It is all those things, because they are all my favorite things.  I can get just as excited about a new soy candle as I can about a new painting or car or kitten or cooking utensil.  But, one thing is for sure, when I have a new favorite thing or a favorite story, I want to talk all about it and share it with everyone.  So, here you go -  my favorite things and stories that have absolutely no theme.  Because you know – I really don’t think my life has any kind of a theme.  I’m a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll….

    I saw a posting on Facebook today from a friend who mentioned a shelter that was full of old dogs that had been “turned over” by their owners.  I'm not sure of all the various reasons why these old dogs are turned over, but I [...]

    May I diagnose you?

     So I had a great week due to two things:  (1).  A dog and (2).  Dr. Red Duke.   First regarding the dog, I was at Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston and got to love on this precious Collie who looked just like [...]
