Broadcasting the news is very serious business, but sometimes I guess news journalists just can’t help themselves. Case in point…
A few years ago, Joe and I used a couple we selected from Trusted Housesitters to watch our house and dog when we were going to be out of town for 3 weeks. We had a huge list of “dog things” written for them, including info on food and medications, favorite toys, etc. We also included her medical history and contact information for both her regular vet and our local after-hours emergency vet of choice, in case something happened and she needed medical treatment while we were away.
Meanwhile, fast forward to today and I saw one of those realty TV shows about an animal medical center and a new patient they had who was there with its people while they were on vacation. That got me to wondering what’s out there to help you if you’re traveling with your pet and you have a pet emergency? How do you know where to go?
Turns out, not surprisingly, there’s a website that can help!
If there’s one thing that can really gross people out, it’s when passengers take their shoes off – or worse, their shoes AND SOCKS off – while on an airplane. I mean really, PassengerShaming.com has DOZENS of entries about it!
Grossness factor notwithstanding, a foot-related issue of the stinkiest kind recently happened on a plane that was way worse than just taking your shoes off to give your toes some wiggle room.
When you’re visiting Central Florida from out of town, the last thing you want to deal with is a dental emergency. Whether it’s a filling that fell out, an abcessed tooth, issues with a crown, bridge, veneer or space maintainer, or just about anything else, the pain and inconvenience could really put a damper on your visit.
But did you know there’s a mobile dentist in the Orlando area who can come to you to help you with your dental problem? Neither did I! (and I live here!) Unfortunately, a friend of ours, Cathy, got to learn all about this mobile dental office first hand, when she would up with a very painful dental emergency.
Who doesn’t love a road trip? Your spend hours in the car, talking, singing (OK maybe arguing a little bit here and there), seeing parts of the country that you may have never seen before.
We’ve given some advice for road trips in the past, from how to find out what restaurants, gas stations, hotels, etc. will be at the next exit, to learning what kind of interesting things will be along your route, to the pros and cons of the various map/GPS programs out there and even what to bring and NOT to bring in your suitcase. But what you bring specifically for the actual road trip can be just as important as all of those and, in some extreme cases, might just save your life.
