How to Eat a Pomegranate

pom1 It’s not often that you get to introduce someone to a food they’ve never tasted before. The last time I had someone surprise me with a new taste was when my best friend, Ceres (very Greek and the queen of foods you’ve never tried before), gave me an Asian Pear. It looked like an apple, tasted like a cross between a melon and concord grapes, and had a sweet fragrance with a juicy crunch.

Last week, I had the fun of introducing another friend to the delectable taste of a ruby-red pomegrante. Her face lit up with delight as she savored the distinctive sweet and sour taste that exploded on her tongue in […]

I Understand…

I’ve never been one to turn away from the raw and real, and nitty gritty about life. I don’t seek it out, but if it comes looking for me, I’ve tried to equip myself to the best of my ability to meet it. Hence my training as an EMT, my training in psychology, and my involvement with dog training and rescue. I figure that pretty much covers most of the bases.

As life often has a tendency to bunch up, I’m in a period where many people I know are being faced with emotionally wrenching decisions. The phone has been busy…

Two calls last week were from opposite sides of the same coin of a very tough decision.

One was from a woman […]

Saner Gun Laws – What You Can Do to Help


Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in America — an average of about one a week.

Had enough? I have. I am so bleepin tired of empty presidential platitudes and all those well-meaning prayers that have never brought back a dead kid or prevented more attacks. Ask any parent who’s lost a child, or any child who’s lost a sibling to gun violence what they think about that. Sadly, I am close to people in both those categories.

There is no sane reason on the planet why ANYONE should be allowed to own ASSAULT rifles, or be able to purchase a gun without a background check. There are […]

While Wink doesn’t seem like he looks very happy, he’s really just impatiently eying the treat being held for him off-camera and would like to be released as soon as possible to nab it.

Net Neutrality Vote December 14 – Tomorrow. Make Your Voice Heard!

Act Now! Save the Internet as We Know It!

Comcast, Verizon and AT&T want to end net neutrality so they can control what we see and do online. They want to gut FCC rules, and then pass bad legislation that allows extra fees, throttling and censorship. But Congress can put a stop to all of this.

This week, the Federal Communications Commission will vote on the future of net neutrality. Whether you’ve been following the political back and forth, skimming the headlines, or struggling to decode acronyms, the decision will have an impact on what we can do online (and who can afford to do it). Because the internet has effectively been free and open […]
