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. 

Blog

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.)

2 Things you should be scared of but are not. (Yenny)

Today’s Topic: 2 Things you should be scared of but are not.

Me!! :D  I am my most dangerous enemy (HA!!); I don’t think that anyone is really scared of me.  They should be, but they don’t know enough to be.  

Serious mental issues here. :D

I have a longer list of things that I am scared of and shouldn’t be than things that I should be, but am not.  My list of things I am afraid of and shouldn’t be: being poor, homeless, getting fired, winning the lottery, drinking too much seltzer water, my credit score dropping too low, not getting enough steps, and bed bugs. 

Ok.  Back on topic.  Things I should be scared of but are not:

1) Using too much bug spray.  Bugs really like to bite me and I really dislike it.  I’m not sure why and I’ve tried everything to become less attractive to them, but nothing has worked.  To solve the problem, I spray myself with enough bug spray every time I leave the house that one of my neighbors called me PigPen.  

I'm sure there are plenty of bugs waiting for him too.

2) Taking too much iron. About two weeks before I am scheduled to donate blood, I start to take iron pills.  I started doing this because once I went to donate blood and my iron count was too low to donate. And due to my mental aversion to failing any test, I started supplementing so that I would not fail again. Once or twice, I might have been a little overzealous in my iron intake and had to Google "how much is too much iron to take". Fortunately (or unfortunately for some people around me), I lived and I had good iron count to donate platelets and plasma, so the cycle continues. 

Lorna Doones.  The main reason I donate blood.  I mean "saving lives..." that's it.
