If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t!

This is a favorite picture.  It certainly makes a claim without stating anything.  Use this product and your appearance will change from reality (or your not so great self-image) to your wanna-be.  Of course, what do you have to do to get there?

Lots of products make this claim with a little tiny disclaimer like, “when used as directed,” along with “results are not typical.”

That is much like pharmaceutical claims we hear on television for new drugs that claim to clear up your skin.  However their disclaimers may be words like “some improvement is typical in a few weeks,” used within the commercial.  The frightening part is the claim made at the end.  “In some rare cases, side effects include paralysis, liver damage, or even death.”

For my part, I have been attracted to network marketing companies, their products, and their people for well over 20 years.  I have tried many health products especially those that made claims that it would be easier to lose weight while using their product.

Many other people are attracted to these same types of products, are you?  We can observe that is simply true, or else there just would not be so many of them, each claiming to have just the discovery that will REALLY work.  Look at the television advertising that promotes buying your food delivered in portion size servings.   They spend so much on the advertising, what could they possibly put into those boxes?    I know people who have tried this, but I never have.  We simply have too much food stored in our house.  I would be unable to eat ONLY what came in those boxes.  I might also be unable to refrain from eating both today’s portion and tomorrow’s.  That assumes that it would actually taste delicious, which they say it does.

I am not tempted there.

To your massive success,

How we began again with Leonbergers

Back in the last decade of the last century, like many near empty nesters, we shifted to the canine children.

My husband says, each time a kid left, we got another dog.  We generally favored the female sex, and it has taken me nearly thirty years to be able to call them bitches.

Our sweet girls are “the girls” to us!

Our first Leonberger came because my husband went to a social event at the home of some folks with a Leonberger who quietly mingled among all the people there leaving vases and coffee table crudites for only the guests to enjoy.  But this was an illusion, I call “training.”

By nature, all the Leos we have had have happy tails which wreak havoc to those types of coffee table items!

Here is Dick back in 2013 with Maisy – who was our fifth Leo, and is still the most* loved!  She was born in May 2013 and was the sole survivor in her litter.

 

Maisy is a fighter who came with us having undeveloped lungs and a broken leg.   She was sorely wanted to fill a vacuum we had and lots of love have gone out to Maisy.  It is a miracle she is still with us today!

  • each one is “most loved,”  as each one is special.   Those are the feelings I have when I talk or think about each one.  The same with children and grandchildren, actually!

To your massive success!
