How Special Do You Make Them Feel?

When our most wonderful mutt, Noodles, passed away two years ago at age 17, I told Laurel, in no uncertain terms, that there would be NO more dogs for us!

She’s fluffy, adorable, follows us around at our heels, and loving in every way an...

Weekly Astrology Forecast March 29 – April 4, 2021

Excerpt from Patreon – Mercury enters Aries on April 4, filling our heads with brave thoughts and inspiring ideas.

Still, aside from the occasional heated argument and snap decision, this transit does offer us sharp thinking and the courage to assert ourselves by voicing opinions. Confidence replaces doubt.
