Review: Pug Life All-In-One™ No Pull Dog Harness

Why didn’t the Native Americans tame bison and ride them?

This question has been posited to me several times on Quora, and I’ve tried to answer it several times.  But I do think it’s best that I just post it here with simple video.

There was movie called Buffalo Rider in 1978 that had the main character as a sort folk hero who rode a bison around taking down evil doers all over the West. It is not the best -acted or best written movie (to say the least), and one thing you very quickly realize is how hard it would be to ride a bison.

I have a sense of humor, so I will post a Jomo and the Possum Posse video that makes fun of this film. You can see how hard it is to ride a tame bison!

So when I see this on Quora again. I’m just going to link to this.

And I should point out that when you go to tame wild bovines, you’re kind of putting your life in your own hands. Even domestic cattle are pretty dangerous animals, and I cannot imagine how brave one would have to have been to domesticate aurochs, which were larger and far more recalcitrant.

If you can live where you can just hunt them, you’re a lot better off.  You are not forced to live with them in intimate contact every single day.

So there was never good reason to tame bison in America until Europeans arrived, and there were plenty of good reasons to leave them as a natural resource that one could harvest in much the same way we harvest white-tailed deer.

I realized that their current suits no longer fit them though, and am currently on the hunt for new ones for this year. I came across these styles you see above in my search, and wanted to share because they’re not only adorable, they’re also all under $ 18. Which one is your favorite?

9 Beautiful (and Practical) Baskets

9 Beautiful (and Practical) Baskets

Hi hi hi! The blog has been noticeably vacant recently compared to normal, I know. The truth is that I have been spending much more time creating content on Instagram lately, and while the Bubby and Bean blog will always be my social media mother ship, I get so much more engagement and traffic on IG these days. So if you don’t yet, please give a follow over there so you’re not missing out on content. And if you prefer to read here, let me know in the comments. People don’t comment on blogs anymore like they do on Instagram, but it’s still always nice to feel like there’s a conversation going on here as well, and I’m not just talking to into an abyss. :) Don’t worry, the blog isn’t going anywhere. We’re on our ninth year and regardless of social media shifts, our plan is to continue to create content here for years to come. And there is lots of great stuff planned here this month, so make sure to visit often.

Now that that’s out of the way, how about those pretty baskets up above? We are verrrry slowly but surely starting to get our house where we want it, room by room. (Don’t even get me started on the kitchen though. Anybody want to come just demo it for us and start all over?) But even the finished rooms could use some organization, so I’m in the market for some beautiful baskets that can hold random trinkets and also act as room accessories. I’m a big fan of all these you see here, but terrible at making decisions. Which ones get your vote?

More to come!

訴訟・告訴について思うこと

調べ物を進めていくと、人は悪いうわさを流すのが好きだなあ、と思うことがあります。
私は今美容整形をしようとしていて、そのためにいろいろと知識を吸収しようとしているところです。
だから美容外科についての情報を調べているのですが、今日は訴訟、告訴という言葉に行き当たりました。
訴訟、告訴、どちらも普段過ごす上ではあまり耳にすることのない言葉ですね。
正確には、耳にすることは多いけれど自分とは直接関係がないことがほとんどの言葉です。
私も今回、自分が受けることを考えている類の手術に関して告訴、訴訟といった言葉を目にして驚いたほどです。

自分の責任で行うはずの美容整形なのに、結果が不服だからと訴訟だ告訴だと言ってしまうのはどうなのでしょうか。
少なくとも、私はそうはならないだろうなと感じました。
私は先日、品川美容外科でカウンセリングを受けてきました。
手術の前に、どういった内容で手術を行うのかという相談をしたのです。
今回、たるみ始めた頬なども気になってはいたものの、それより先にしわをどうにかしたいと思いしわ取りをお願いしました。
先生は私が特にどこをきれいにしたい、と主張するのを聞いてくれ、その上で全体のバランスからどこのしわをどのくらい取るのがいい、という話をしてくださいました。
1ヶ所のしわを取りすぎてしまうと不自然になってしまうので、全体をバランスよく、かつ私が一番気にしている部分が取りすぎて目立つことがないように、綿密に治療計画を立ててくださったので私もかなり安心してお話を聞くことができました。
症例写真も見せてもらえ、どこに何を注射するとこうなるか、ということをわかりやすく説明してくださったのは、私にとっては嬉しい事でした。

品川美容外科クリニックのホームページでは各施術について説明とともに副作用が表記されています。
あらかじめ品川美容外科クリニックのホームページを確認していたので施術後に副作用があることを知っていましたが、施術をする前も副作用についても詳しい説明があったため、不安になるより、むしろ心構えをして施術にのぞめるのではないかと思いました。

注射程度の軽い整形とは言っても未経験のことですし、私は元々納得のいく説明を求めてしまう質です。
そういう意味では、私と品川美容外科の相性はとてもよかったと言えるのではないでしょうか。

これまで調べていった中で裁判を行ったケースもあり、改めて手術に対する意識を深めました。
裁判にまで発展したものを調査してみると、事前に施術内容や効果の説明を怠っていたかどうかが焦点になっている事例が多くありました。その責任を裁判で明らかにするというものです。
手術自体が失敗したのならともかく、きちんと自分の納得するまで説明を受けていないのなら自己責任と言われてしまってもしょうがないのかもしれません。
裁判をするのにも時間とお金がかかりますので、私が品川美容外科で納得のいくまで説明を聞いたように、しっかりと説明を聞いて信頼できる美容外科で手術を受けることをおすすめします。

Our Bohemian Inspired Outdoor Living Space

I feel like I’m cheating a little with this post, since I shared our patio reveal (and most of these pictures) about a year ago, right after our patio was complete. But we’ve started to get it set up again for the season, and that makes me so happy that I just felt compelled to share it again.

It’s been many years since I actually had a backyard, and for a long time I dreamt of having a space that felt like an oasis. I envisioned something colorful (which is normally not my aesthetic at all) with a strong boho vibe. When we moved into our house last year, our backyard started off with nothing in it at all except a concrete step leading out to it. It was a mess, and I couldn’t wait to get started. First my husband and I designed a poured concrete patio and hired a local company to install it. I wanted it to resemble slate, and in turned out beautifully. Then my friend Tyler Wisler (he is amazing) and I worked together for about a month to come up with the overall design. We ordered the furniture and accessories and collected lots of plants and flowers. My dad and my husband built the cedar slat wall, Tyler and I arranged the furniture, and it was complete.

(Before, below.)

We spent so much time in this space (especially in the evening) last year, and I am thrilled and grateful to be able to do it again. Thanks for letting me share my excitement, friends!
