I hardly consider my love for Australian cattle dogs to be a secret. My family has owned and loved them since I was a young girl, and now Blaine and I have one of our own; Lenny is an Australian cattle dog mix, but I still think she fits the blue heeler criteria, even if … More Let’s talk about Australian cattle dogs
If I had to guess, I imagine most of us are familiar with raccoons. When I say familiar, I am inclined to think that most of us have at least seen an image of these furry friends, and there are plenty of us who see them on a semi-regular basis. I’ve always found raccoons to … More How much do you know about raccoons?
Spring may officially be upon us, but the weather here in Ontario, Canada, isn’t exactly reflective of this as of late. In fact, I’m pretty sure this period of time is when a lot of us fall victim to the cold, miserable grasp of a variety of delightful colds and viruses, and chest infections are … More Here’s how to tame a chest infection (part two)
I should probably make mention of the fact that while I am not certain I do have a chest infection, I’m pretty sure that is what I’m dealing with. I’ve had more than enough experience with them over the years, arguably because I smoke, and while just days ago the status of this shit in … More Here’s how to calm down a chest infection
I sincerely hope someone appreciates the title of today’s post. Is it corny? Yes. Did I literally chuckle as I typed it out? Yes. No ragrets. My former statement is a reference to the widely popular film We’re the Millers, in case anyone was concerned about my welfare regarding the spelling of the word ‘regrets.’ … More Get ‘otter’ here!
If you can tell me right now, with a straight face, that you are not a fan of otters, do me a favour and find yourself the nearest dumpster and clamber up inside, head first. Please suppress any impulse to remove oneself from said dumpster until your perception of otters has changed, or, until you’ve … More Let’s talk about otters
Blaine and I have been committed to watching the entirety of The Walking Dead over the span of the last few months. He introduced me to the show, and I am sincerely glad he did as I’ve really been enjoying it. A couple of evenings ago, we turned on Netflix to watch The Walking Dead … More Have you seen ‘Outlast’?
I would wager that the majority of us are familiar with the expression ‘trust your gut.’ Essentially, the saying implies that our digestive organs have the ability to send us subliminal messages pertaining to, oftentimes, hairy situations, and that we should trust the message being conveyed. Phrased in this manner, it is understandable why a … More Trust your gut
I promise I won’t do a series pertaining to the many uses for apple cider vinegar as I did for baking soda. I could, but I digress. That is, after today’s post. My mom and sister gave me the impression that my baking soda saga was a wee bit excessive in terms of its duration, … More How do you use apple cider vinegar? (part two)
I’ve definitely discussed apple cider vinegar here on my blog before, but I don’t believe I really went into detail regarding the many different ways it can be used to achieve a variety of outcomes. Years ago, I drank a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a day for a few months. This stuff offers a … More How do you use apple cider vinegar?
This past Thursday, my mom, dad, grandmother, Blaine and myself ventured out to the Sanderson Centre in Brantford to see The Irish Rovers play. My grandmother (whom in Hungarian I refer to as Nagymama, Nagy for short) loves Irish music, and despite her and my Nagypapa’s strong Hungarian roots, the two of them saw The … More Are you familiar with The Irish Rovers?
I am not someone who supports the idea of technological advancements costing actual living people jobs. I think it’s rather shitty, as do a lot of people, and with the way things are going, I imagine we will see even more jobs lost to automation in the near future. The one and only exception I … More Struggling to keep your floors clean? Read this
I like to think I have pretty good oral hygiene. I brush my teeth regularly, and while I’m not nearly as consistent with flossing, I do dabble in it from time to time. I have an issue with receding gums, as do a lot of people. My dentist told me mine are a result of … More Should you be using mouthwash regularly?
Anyone who is prone to getting knots in their hair can attest to the unprecedented rage that rears its ugly head when trying to rake a comb through a tumbleweed. At least, the rage I encounter when trying to comb through damn near dreadlocks in my hair is tremendous. I figure the rage is a … More Got hair knots? Read this
Rather than bombarding you with a slew of different ways to handle someone who is narcissistic, I thought it might be more beneficial to break this topic up into two separate posts. I figure the topic of narcissism is heavy enough, let alone when a post resembles the closet in Narnia and just keeps going … More More tips for dealing with a narcissist
While an unfortunate reality, I would wager that more of us than not have dealt with a narcissist, or narcissists, and on more than one occasion. Anyone who has familiarity or experience with a narcissist will arguably attest to the fact that they’re vile specimens, and despite how absolutely fucking awful they are, there are … More Tips for dealing with a narcissist
I do ask that you grant me the opportunity to acknowledge the title of today’s post and state that by no means do I intend to communicate any disrespect toward anyone in poverty. If I might add, I think it’s a wee bit sad I have to acknowledge this regardless, but given the state of … More Here’s how to make a poor man’s burrito bowl
Perhaps I am isolated in this opinion, but I have always felt as though the concept of setting boundaries for oneself is often perceived as a negative thing. I speculate that a lot of us, when we hear the phrase ‘setting boundaries,’ cringe internally, or even have a mental flinch, if you will, regardless of … More The importance of establishing boundaries
This past weekend, Blaine and I had friends of ours over to see our home and have dinner. They saw our home prior to the completion of renovations, and further, the incorporation of furniture and other decor, so we figured it was due time to have them back out for them to see the progress … More Make this for dinner tonight
I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m an overly religious person. I am Catholic, born and raised, although I do take issue with many of the teachings and beliefs that exist within Catholicism, so I prefer to identify as someone who is spiritual. I’m not sure if that statement is a paradox, but we’re going to roll … More What are you grateful for?
I’ll admit that I am coming to a close on my baking soda series. I could arguably dedicate another 20 posts to this miracle substance, but I do think things have already become a tad redundant, let alone the redundancy that would occur in continuing this saga for another 20 days. Trust me when I … More The baking soda chronicles (part six)
We’re on a roll, and we ain’t stopping now. I do ask that you please refrain from taking my previous assertion a little too seriously. The ideology of being on a roll can apply to a wide variety of things, but for the sake of this post and its subject matter, we are on a … More The baking soda chronicles (part five)
Aaaaaaand we’re back. Today marks the fourth installment in my baking soda saga, and as I stated in yesterday’s post, I’m not entirely sure how long this theme will continue. I figure because baking soda is so versatile in its uses, these posts are beneficial for just about everyone, hence why this subject has been … More The baking soda chronicles (part four)
We meet again, my friends. Here we are, three days later, still conversing about baking soda. I could honestly compose 20 separate posts detailing baking soda and the creative and ingenious ways it can be used for a vast array of purposes, but I don’t want to bore anyone. I feel as though the brain … More The baking soda chronicles (part three)
There isn’t a chance in hell that I would successfully encapsulate all things baking soda in one single post. The stuff is far too incredible in regard to its nature and all of the ways in which it can be used to contain its subject matter in one minuscule blog post; instead, I thought I … More The baking soda chronicles (part two)
I firmly believe there are far too many people in this world who are entirely unaware of the tremendous potential and capabilities of baking soda. I imagine the majority of us use baking soda primarily for baking, with using it for cleaning purposes coming in hot as the secondary use for it. Buckle up, folks, … More Let’s hear it for baking soda
Yesterday’s post provided all of you with some information pertaining to how to go about composing some homemade dog treats, so it really is only fair that today’s post provides you with that same information, only this time, in the context of cats. I’m not someone who believes that people are either cat or dog … More Here’s how to make homemade cat treats
For anyone who owns a dog, you’re arguably aware of how important treats are for your pupper. Dogs are God-sent creatures that are far too pure and wonderful to be without treats, and so we as their owners must do our due diligence and ensure our doggos are receiving treats whenever necessary. Most of us … More Here’s how to make homemade dog treats
I wouldn’t say I’ve been shy in expressing and sharing my love for all things Norse with you, my lovely readers. I find the Viking period of history, as well as Vikings themselves to be astoundingly admirable people in what they accomplished in their time on this earth, and I believe their ingenuity and warrior/farmer … More Vikings: Valhalla – season two shenanigans
I said in yesterday’s post that today’s would again cover some very incidental facts affiliated with the musical genre known as rock and roll, and here we are. I try to keep my posts around 300 words or less so as not to lose anyone’s attention, therefore I won’t be including each and every fact … More … and some more absolutely random rock and roll facts
