Keep your paws warm

Keep your paws warm

The husband bought me these cute fingerless paw gloves to stay warm in the house in the winter while working on my tablet. They’re made from a cream-coloured fuzzy material resembling fur that goes almost halfway up your finger length. Your palms will be covered in brown pads resembling the […]

Doggone Gorgeous

Over the years I’ve had many dogs, but I never had a dog that needed to wear clothes until we got bug dogs. Bug Dogs are Boston Terrier Pug cross dogs that are slightly pudgy, but also energetic with pushed in faces, but with snouts longer than pugs and their […]

When you need power for your gadgets

When you need power for your gadgets

Cell phones laptops and tablets never hold enough battery. You’re always gonna run out sometime. You can minimize the stress this can cause by investing in an external battery. I’ve tried many brands, but I believe we hit the jackpot when we found this brand on Amazon. It’s a bestseller […]

Break glass to exit

A couple of friends of ours were headed up north to wild country doing a lot of driving a while back, so for Christmas we got them each a little safety device. You can never be too careful, especially when it comes to icy roads and wild animals and bad […]

Can you believe there are some pet cats in the world who have never had catnip? A travesty! Every animal deserves an escape from daily life or a pick me up. Elephants have alcohol they ferment themselves by burying fruit in the ground and digging it up later to get […]

Gellin’

Gellin’

I have been in love with these pens for close to twenty years. They’re smooth-rolling gel pens from uni-ball. Perfect for long flowing writing sessions or even for signing checks, as the ink is not eraseable. The only thing is if you touch it when it’s still wet with your […]

Kool-Aid to the rescue

Kool-Aid to the rescue

One of my favourite drinks I’ve discovered of late is Kool-Aid flavour drops in a can of club soda. If you’re like me, you’ve often wondered what club soda is and what the difference is between tonic water, sparkling water and club soda. Club soda has baking soda in it. […]

Your gums and teeth will thank you

Your gums and teeth will thank you

Did you know that dentists generally recommend softer bristles on your toothbrush? At least ours does.

The best bandages for your small appendages

Sometimes name brand stuff is better. In our household, we prefer Band-Aid brand bandages. And these ones are the perfect size for big toes. Hubby has an allergy to many glued and sticky things, and this was one of the bandages that he could use. Any of the plastic bandages […]
