Dante's Midlife Crisis

In the middle of the journey of our life,
I came to myself within a dark wood
Where the straight way was lost.
Ah, how hard it is to tell of that wood,
Savage and harsh and dense --
The thought of which renews my fear!
So bitter is it that death is hardly more.
- Dante "Inferno"

A Recipe for a Biscuit Eater

I whipped up a batch of biscuits tonight that just melted in my mouth. Sometimes there is nothing better than hot buttered biscuits with a generous daubing of our local honey.

Now on to "biscuit eater" - a derogatory term which is applied to dogs who only work for treats. These days with those annoying "clickers" and food pouches, that means just about every dog in Boulder now. If you are using clickers and food treats to train your dog, stop. If you are thinking about it, don't. It's a ridiculously stupid way to train a dog.
