Peace Frog - Tribute to the Doors

by Caroline McElroy

Pet Detectives (also known as Pet Parents) should beware of a new trend of scams in the area. Whether it be one individual’s misleading adoption ad or a vet clinic with bogus charges, these scam artists prey on our vulnerability as pet moms and dads, and can risk the livelihood and health of our pets.

Design Show and their pitfalls

Written by

Quite a few years ago I met a client who wanted to decorate her new condo. She was very determined with the type of style and color palette desired. That’s usually a good thing and can sometimes be half the battle. Not this time. She spent countless hours watching various design shows looking for style, colors and even lead times and budgets.

Written by

If you’re like me, you love a good story about a loyal, loving dog. So you probably saw Marley and Me and Max in recent years and grew up on the classics like Lassie, Hooch, Old Yeller, and even Lady and the Tramp.  Great books can turn into amazing movies, especially when they are true stories. So here is a list of 3 books that definitely need movie deals.

The Power of Your Positive Intention

Written by

Dear Maddisen: I have very clear and specific positive goals for my life, but I feel like something is missing, like I don’t truly believe all of them are possible. But honestly, they’re all doable. How can I fully believe in my goals? How can I erase the doubts?  Thank you, DW

Somewhere in between spring and fall there is Resort; a pre-season collection dedicated by many brands during holiday seasons when customers are looking to purchase clothes for vacation and upcoming holidays.

What to recycle and what to trash

Written by

Sometimes there is confusion about what exactly can and should go in those blue recycling containers that are collected for recycling here in Los Angeles county. Some recyclable items end up in the wrong bin, and more importantly, some strictly waste items can contaminate those that are recyclable or can be otherwise hazardous to the recycling process, and should be strictly avoided in the blue bins.

Back pain is the second leading symptom for physician visits in the United States. And you know, as well as I do, we all experienced it at some point or some degree in our lives.

Small Space Solitude

Written by

No matter where or what we call home, we all deserve a peaceful place to relax and recharge. This just happens to be a one bedroom condo.

When those first few steps in the morning cause pretty intense pain in the heel of your foot, you may have Plantar Fasciitis. It's an overuse injury that can affect people overweight, people who walk or stand a lot for their jobs, or people who jog and run a lot as part of their exercise routines.

With the holiday weekend upon us, it’s time to prepare for the masses of people and their pets filling the streets, parks, and beaches to celebrate this great country and bask in the sunlight until the nighttime fireworks.

Dear Readers:

I recently watched the movie “Last Vegas”, the 2013 comedy about 4 senior-aged men who fly off to Las Vegas to be ‘bad boys’ and throw a wild bachelor party for one of them who is about to marry his 31 yr. old girlfriend.

Getting past “Hello”

Written by

A first impression in dating used to be based on how you felt as soon as you saw someone and started chatting them up.

My torturous relationship with dessert continues with this batch of ice cream and a fruit topping to go with it.I didn’t plan for these two to go together, but I’m happy they were a match. The ice cream is rich and, well, creamy. Super thick–almost like a custard. The compote on top is also rich, from the natural sugars in the fruit, but it also has a light tang that echoes the characteristic flavor of buttermilk. So when you put the two together…it’s just the right combo.
