Ten days after I obtained my 7-week-old hens-to-be, I was in for a few surprises.
Fun, puzzling and most of all, surprises that I had never, for the life of me, imagined birds may have delivered.
The clickable title will reveal what I have learned….
Cooking is not about what shiny equipment you have, it is about a creative process that allows you to turn any scrap of leftovers or whatever random items you have in your fridge or on your counter into a tasty meal. Good cooks are creative thinkers. Cooking and food making are meditative processes that allow one not simply learning a new dish, but using a specific knowledge gaining in a particular field as a tool for honing our creative thinking skill in general.
Sauerkraut making acted as such a tool for me here.
The clickable title will take to you the fun details of my learning to cook, not just sauerkraut making.
A dog was feeding on the body of a dead woman and defending his “prize” aggressively. He was shot dead by the police, who couldn’t wait a minute longer to get to the dead body, it seems.
While we may be quick to blame who looked like the perpetrator of a murder, we may commit an act of violence towards the assumed murderers as they may be either innocent or guilty of a lesser crime.
In quick action for revenge, we may commit murder ourselves.
My kindly looking dogs swiftly, without moment’s hesitation, killed a visiting skunk in their backyard with lightening speed.
Do we, perhaps, all have the inner makings of becoming murderers?
Given the “proper” trigger, in an unfortunate moment, maybe?
These are some of the lessons drawn from this post. As always, the title is clickable.
The domestic animal vaccination debate has been going on for more than a couple of decades. The general public holds vastly different opinions, so do the professionals such as veterinarians and veterinary researchers.
This post is a long overdue thorough review on what may be the “gold standard” of “least harm”-“most effective” way of protecting our best friends.

When a wound is infected, the traditional treatment is surgical debridement, for humans and domestic animals alike.
However, plenty of other less invasive and readily available remedies may be just as effective, if not more. In this post, I explore some of these treatments, including manuka honey and hydrotherapy.

With unexpected depth, Victor, the fictional character in Mr. Selfridge, did not let willful blindness get in his way of self awareness. He further took action based on this awareness. At least in this instance, he became his authentic self. In the reality of life, we often fail in both or either steps.

“Nothing in the world is the way it ought to be. It’s harsh, and cruel. But that’s why there is us – champions. Doesn’t matter where we come from, what we’ve done or suffered or even if we make a difference. We live as though the world were as it should be. To show it what it can be.” These are the words of Angel, a struggling vampire in Joss Whedon’s fictional creation.
It is my firm belief that deep down, perhaps for some of us VERY deep down, we all have the “seed” of becoming “champions”.

Luka, the yearling wolf, does not believe she can only befriend beings of her own species. Perhaps it is not a “belief” at all, maybe she “knows” inter-species communication is within her reach….
Her journey may help your own establishment of a whole new world of friendships.
