Danny’s World: I’m Torn On the Issue Of Pit Bulls

Cuda

I saw a video on Facebook today about a guy in California who lost his dog to the city because it got loose and killed the neighbors cat in the cat’s yard.  The dog then died in their custody from a heat stroke after being left for hours in a hot truck.  The guy is upset as any dog owner would be.  You can read about it here: justice for Cuda.

I am torn over the pit bull issue because I know pit owners who have great dogs.  But I have also come face-to-face with aggressive pits and it is terrifying.

We have a neighbor who owns a pit who lunges even when on the leash.  Now most people will argue that it’s the owner who makes the dog.  And I agree.  But the problem I have is trusting a dog who has the power in one bite to snap my arm or rip an animal to shreds.

I have had to stand my ground with an aggressive pit and I almost peed my pants I was so scared.

Danny’s World: A Little Slow This Morning

Fun was had last night at the wedding and afterward Evelina and I stopped by the German restaurant for a little night cap before heading home.  As a result, I feel like my head was run over by a Greyhound bus.  Sluggish and lethargic are the words of the day.

Fibromyalgia Dizziness, Balance & Falls

Balance problems and falling are a problem for me. I have even fallen down the steps several times which is why the kids made me move to a ground floor room.

My rheumatologist is also concerned with my balance problems and wanted to set me up with physical therapy. He even talked to the one in the same building colleague to colleague about finances, but it turned out that they were not in my insurance’s network. The PT/Dr there gave me two free visits and a bunch of exercises to do to help with this. I have been to balance therapy before.

“If I Could Save Time In A Bottle”

Daily Prompt – Bottle

After watching the Tony Awards last Sunday (we actually finished watching them today) I guess it is fitting to have a Musical Blog Post!Another good song line would be “Time Keeps On Slipping Into The Future” (Fly Like An Eagle, Steve Miller Band).

I just can’t believe that it is half way through the month of June in the year 2017! I thought it was just yesterday that we were saying Happy New Year. But of course, that couldn’t be true because we are in our new place and only have been for a month…a MONTH, and we haven’t finished unpacking yet.

My husband’s nephew is graduating this week. I remember when we went to see them in the hospital just after he was born. I looked after him for the first year of his life. He is so tall, handsome and smart, but he wasn’t…

Today’s Featured Blog…Exploring Consciousness!

exploring consciousness

I’ve realized that life can be pretty simple. It’s usually (not always) as hard as you make it. Many aspects of life work this way – relationships, “success”, self-acceptance, etc.

A major part of living a simple life is having basic principles that guide you. While I definitely don’t have the entire key to a good life, I can share some insight that I’ve gained from experience, and some that I’ve stolen from various other smart people over time.

DSC_0044 This dragonfly lives simply. It striked some fab poses for me as well. Be like the dragonfly.

This will likely be a multi-post series, because that’s only necessary for something of this nature. Life is always changing, and I definitely don’t wish to impose any of these ideas on anyone. If anything, I hope they can inspire you or make you think at the very least.

Beer Tasting in Aalborg, Denmark

Everything in and around Denmark

The other night after work, I attended “Beer Tasting” sponsored by our employee club at work.

It started out innocent enough, with one beer, a small plastic cup and a lot of anticipation from the 15 or so participants.

The first beer was a Pilsner, which tasted all right, but our expectations wouldn’t just accept a normal tasting beer like that. We might as well have been drinking Tuborg or Carlsberg, which are known over the whole world.

Beer number 2, Belgian Tripel was a far cry from the first Pilsner. Things were looking up, and the chips and nuts began to fly as well.

I apologize for not setting things in the correct order, but there was talking, and laughing, and my boss to my right who felt that I wasn’t enjoying myself enough with those small cups of beer, so he helped me attain another state of reality.

Danny’s World: I’m Not A Personal Development Blogger or Guru-I’m Just Me

Danny's iphone 022The other day I received an email in my inbox in which the person stated I am their favorite personal development blogger.  I was incredibly appreciative, of course, and told this reader how grateful I am.  The funny thing is I don’t label myself as a personal development blogger or guru.  As a matter of fact, I try to distance myself from those types of bloggers.

It is interesting how we see ourselves and how the world sees us.  The only thing I try to do is help others who might be struggling in the same ways I struggle. The personal development pages I follow leave out one important thing: being personal.  They want to give life tips, but rarely do they ever reveal anything personal about themselves.

I see myself as a guy trying to be a better person who makes a lot of mistakes, but who truly cares.  If that makes me a personal development blogger in other’s eyes then I guess I am.  The truth is I would rather people simply label me as Danny.
