Sailor Service Dog GOOSE

GOOSE is a 2 year old Aussie/Shepard mix.  He is a paws4vets demo Service Dog and just plain awesome.  Luckily, GOOSE likes being on the boat, now we just have to figure out where he will poop 🙂 As we travel we plan on training and doing seminars for paws4people.  Life is good, especially, when you have a great companion on those long, cold, nights.

Finishing up details

Finishing up details

We are back on the farm (not ours anymore!) finishing the details. Packing up what little we have not already moved to YuMe. Cleaning and getting rid of all the stuff we can’ take.

Some of this kills me. Things we paid hundreds if not thousands of dollars we give away or sell for peanuts. Shelly tells me it is just stuff and let it go. Easy for her to say!

Then there is the fun of dealing with the ‘companies’. Tmobile wants to charge me $800 for canceling a contract after I have been with them 15 years. Nice.  Doing my best to wipe my tracks clean!

Helping the new owners get familiar with running a horse farm has been fun. Each task I do for them (take a load to the dump) is great as it is the last time. The guy at the dump yesterday asked if we were moving when he saw what we were throwing away and when I told him we bought a boat – he said ” I heard about you! You had that horse farm right?” I guess we are locally famous… at the dump anyway 😉

Another interesting project is moving from a desktop of 15 years to an ipad mini and a chromebook. Cleaning off my computer is a trip down memory lane but it is fun deleting all that crap I have been meaning to get to! Liberating sort of!

10 days and counting until we are back on YuMe and can start that new life! Here is what our new car looks like! See it hanging on the stern?

 

Who Cares About The Economy?

Who Cares About The Economy?

The more I hear about the challenges everybody is facing the more I want to hide under a rock.

But in fact, we seem to be doing better than ever!

In some conversations I even hear talk about the end of the US as we know it, the one world oligarch government conspiracy, the chaos being fabricated to ensure the ability of the these people to make it happen – and on and on.

Then I think to myself – if I buy into that thinking I am helping create it!

So although it is very difficult to do (don’t we all want to see something bad happen in the news as we are so trained to look for it???) I am consciously doing my best to create MY world.

I’ll leave the bad stuff for the news networks to promote and hope it affects them as they create it!

And you?

Change is good (for personal growth)

Change is good (for personal growth)

When I say change I do not refer to the current administration change.

For you and I though, in most cases change is a very good thing. We tend to get stuck in routines and habits harmful to our growth.

The best thing you can do is go out and make a deliberate provocative change. (You can always change back!)

Pick something in your life needing a new look, or new direction and take action today!

More health plan stuff

More health plan stuff

Drug companies will spend 150-200 million dollars on advertising to convince people that the health plan is good. http://bit.ly/16UnXE

What a joke. Please read the bill yourself and see if it is really what is best for all of us?
