More Evidence Coffee is Good for Us

They say you can prove anything with statistics, and there’s probably a survey or study out there to support just about anything, so it’s no wonder it’s hard to know what to do sometimes. Given our propensity to believe the worst, and indeed the reality that many things we enjoy … Continue reading

What Else Will Germ-Killing Paper Towels Kill?

What is this thing we have about germs? Easy to forget sometimes we are a bacteria factory ourselves, and supposed to be that way. We could never digest food if we didn’t have this symbiotic relationship with these little organisms. I remember being freaked out as a kid when I … Continue reading

Cash Register Receipts Coated with BPA

Sometimes I think the happiest existence would be in some tiny out of the way place, cut-off from modern civilization. Living off the land, oblivious to what’s going on in the outside world. Then I think about all I would miss, including all the amazing things that have been dreamt … Continue reading

Learning About Arnica from the Big Bad Wolf

If we could only retain all the knowledge and experience gained by those who have come before us, what a brilliant bunch we would be. But so often we have to come to things on our own, each learning and gathering information as if it’s really new, when it’s just … Continue reading

It’s really interesting, and a walk down memory lane, to be reminded how there was a time not that long ago when the idea of selling bottled water would have been almost laughable. Sure we’ll pay for a bottle of flavoured liquid, but plain ordinary water? Crazy. And yet it’s … Continue reading

What’s New As We Hit Post 100 Today

Hard to believe it’s already been a hundred days and a hundred posts since I started this blog. And yet at the same time, I almost can’t remember not writing here daily. Of course what does that say about my memory then? But once you start doing something you place … Continue reading

No to Hallucinogenic Anesthesia for Animals

Life is best when you and your loved ones all feel great. Nothing drives this point home more than when one member falls ill. And this subject is always easier to discuss when the former is your reality. Sometimes it’s easier to prepare ahead of time for what may lie … Continue reading

Follow-up on Simply Fido Organic Dog Toys

A couple of months ago I wrote about some wonderful organic dog toys made by Simply Fido. I discussed the big advantages, and in my opinion great importance of going organic, and not toxic for something our dogs are going to chew on, and end up partially ingesting.
