Healthy or Not

According the American Heart Association drinking a glass of red wine daily may increase your HDL (high density lipoprotein), which removes plaque from your arteries, thus lowering your blood pressure. The effect of increasing HDL is from the alcohol in the red wine. ~American Heart Association July 9, 2018.

That's great, except for one thing...too much is bad for you. Too much of anything is bad for you.

 I like wine with dinner occasionally; it tastes good, and looks pretty in a fancy wine glass. So cheers, bottoms up, and na zdrowie (to your health in Polish).  Have a glass of wine to enjoy as a health benefit, not as a way to escape a bad day.

Meet Ebby


Ebby came into my life February 2018, from Pet Adoption Network. She's a little over two years old and is full of life, energy, and loads of mischief, as you can see in her picture. ~Pam

My Real Job


Meet Liz. She has been residing with me, as my best pal, for almost three years. She sleeps on a king size bed when she isn't being groomed, fed, petted or  pampered. This beats living and sleeping in a drafty, cold barn where she had to compete for her daily food. The vet and I figure she's 19 years old. 

My real job takes on many descriptions. I used to be the Queen around here, then I got demoted to Princess. As time went on I now have the title of scullery maid and doorman...oops I mean door woman (must be politically correct you know). Lizzy rules the roost. She's a retired mouser, and barn cat. I'm still working so I can give Liz the life she deserves. I love my animals. It's the way I roll.

When One Is Not Enough

Image result for picture of bag of potato chips

I'm a health food freak. I also love potato chips. Your right, the two are at opposite ends of the spectrum. There is something about those crispy, salty chips that make me feel happy. It's probably a throw back to my fun times as a child when those tasty taters were a special treat each time I cleaned my room (which wasn't very often) or was on good behavior ( which also wasn't very often).

Lay's classic potato chips are my favorite, which is why I had to post a picture of this crunchy, snappy fun food. The only problem is they make my jeans shrink. Guess I'll have to go for a longer walk today.

Silver City Sadie and the Spiritual Connection

Silver City Sadie

I love my horse for many reasons. Most importantly she keeps me sane and balanced, and is a spiritual connection to something far greater than mankind; powerful and magnificent, yet sweet and gentle. Always grateful she is in my life.
