A long-running personal blog shared by two authors with completely different approaches to life. And a lot of large, beautiful photographs of dogs and nature and places we've traveled to. Rich in commentary and irreverant in style. 



We started blogging a long time ago. Our work hours never aligned with recommended psychotherapists and we needed to get our thoughts out. We are great friends, total opposites and long-time housemates. This was a way to communicate. With each other. With strangers. With consumer marketers. With sub-par meteorologists. With distant friends who wanted to see pictures of stuff we were up to.

This is the place. Our bucket of thoughts to share. You are welcome. 
(We realize that most of you are here for the dog pictures.)

Spark Tryout


I recently had 3 hours to myself... so I started looking at apps on my phone. I tend to download shiny new apps that I read about in the WSJ and then totally forget about them. 

Well I tried out Adobe Spark. At first I thought that was just one thing. It's not. (stoopid) It is a set of 3 apps that work together. No idea why. There is SPark Video, Spark Posts and Spark Pages.

This is Spark Pages below.


Incase it gets eaten by SquareSpace here is the direct link:

 I just wanted to test the embedding of the project too. I'm just so testy.

SnapChat is Hard.


This is me and my filters. :D

This is me and my filters. :D

A few weeks ago my nieces taught me to SnapChat. They said it was how they would talk to me because I asked them why they stopped texting me and they told me nobody texted anymore.  They all SnapChat.  They are 10 and 8.  Yes, I am officially the old fogey. 

So as the good aunt, I learned how to use selfie filters and make videos and am now a SnapChatter. I don't understand it, but I amuse myself with stupid selfies.

Then last week I read an article in the Wall Street Journal about SnapChat Streaks.  SnapStreaks.  THE WALL STREET FREAKING JOURNAL was writing about SnapChat.  I had to do it right? It's a metric and was in The Journal.  How hard would it be to write someone everyday in an app.  I Google Chat and text people everyday, it's one more mode of communication.  I can do this, people have streaks of 200-300 days.

It has now been three days since I've attempted to do a streak and I have failed twice.  Does one day count as a streak?  Because it better.  I don't have anything longer than that so far... I am getting better at the selfie filters though.
