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.)

Water Testing Continues


The discovery of Aqua Hydrate has started a new obsession with fancy bottled water.  Not just the Smart Waters or Fiji's or Voss's, but strange and not widely carried choices. 

The newest discovery is blk.  It's a water that is fulvic-enhanced all-natural mineral water. (I have no idea what that all means, just that's what the bottle and the website tells me.) The creepiest part of this water is IT IS BLACK!! When poured into a glass, it almost look like badly diluted Coke product.  It drinks just like water, but the color is very distracting. 

Dasani used to be my favorite bottled water, but now I think I have a new favorite. The winner of the bottled water experience is Aqua Hydrate.  It's a pH of 9 instead of 8 for blk. and 7 for just everyday water.  I feel myself getting stronger everyday.
