72. How To Name Your Dachshund
MaggieMae's name is what it is for a reason. Dachshunds are long in size, so they should have a name with at least three syllables! Pure logic. So, if you have a new dachshund puppy and you're on a search for the best name start with choices of names that have at least three syllables. For start...

76. Lucky Kitty Is Maneki Neko
I'm always looking for gifts that combine art and spirituality. This is a gift that adds the element of legend. I love the legend from 17th Century Tokyo, Japan that memorializes the story of a cat who came to be known as Maneki Neko (beckoning cat), because it saved the life of a wealthy busine...

77. See Wild Birds Resettle When Seasons Change
Migratory birds contribute to the moods I attach to every season. In spring the wild birds make life more congenial. More, hospitable, somehow. Along with armies of yellow school buses and unmistakable fall fragrances, migratory birds take wing at the close of summer. I'd like, here, to give a ...

79. I Love Classic TV
Classic tv and their theme songs can bring back happy memories if you're like me and enjoy old television shows. A TV theme song can be awesome in its power to transition my attention.

When J. D. Salinger died on January 27, 2010, Stephen King said in Entertainment Weekly, "Salinger was the last of the great post-WWII American writers, and in Holden Caulfield - maybe the greatest American-boy narrator since Huck Finn - he created an authentic Voice of the Age: funny, anxious, a...

82. Best Japanese Confection Is Chocolate Treat
Anyone can make this trouble free dessert from Japanese kitchens. This Cocoa Mochi recipe says to bake in a microwave oven. So, it frees up the regular or convection oven for something else. Or, on hot summer days, preparation of this chewy chocolaty treat won't add to the temperature in the kit...

84. Assorted Views of "WHITE"
Have you ever stopped to think how much "work" white does for us in our efforts to communicate? It symbolizes for us so many emotions. We use it to convey vivid ideas more than any hue on the color spectrum. Snowy white hair on my grandma glistens in my memory. Our family bought a gorgeous whit...

85. Boston Celtics 2011-12 Short Season
I wonder if the shortened 2012 NBA season prevented the Boston Celtics from competing at their best in the playoffs. The top three players are, well, very mature. With Kevin Garnett (35), Paul Pierce (34) and Ray Allen (36) should be at the top of their game as the season approaches the champions...

87. Fun Facts About The Liver Could Save Your Life
Fun Facts About The Liver Could Save Your Life
Liver health for me started with learning about the liver and its "reasons for being." A healthy liver is an expert at doing many tasks at once. This distinguishes it from many other body parts precisely because a liver is NOT a specialist, in the sense that like, say the heart is there to pump b...
