My pup got to try out acupuncture at her holistic vet appointment today. She took the needles easily but a few minutes after this while walking around, she decided to shake...and yep, most of the needles went flying.

My pup getting acupuncture at her holistic vet today. She took the needles easily (yep, there is even one on her head, then a bunch going down her back), but a few minutes after this while walking around, she decided to shake…and yep, most of the needles went flying.

* The Unsafety Net discusses how social media has become a threat, and often more, to women. When will this end?

* And finally, some gorgeous pix taken by photographer Daphne Jenkins who I met at the yoga retreat last week. Great work!

Linus: [to Charlie Brown after Sally just ripped him a new one] You’ve heard of the fury of a woman scorned, haven’t you?

Charlie Brown: Yeah, I guess I have.

Linus: Well, that’s nothing compared to the fury of a woman who has been cheated out of trick-or-treats.
