You Snooze….You Lose! Pup Corn

Some 20 years ago, an idea was hatched by me in the presence of my family. I had the idea of flavored pop corn for dogs, and I called it Pup Corn! My family thought the idea was fun and the name was clever. It became the family joke, me saying ‘someday, I’m going to develop the recipes for the “Pup Corn” and make a fortune’. Year after year I said this, especially as I tossed pieces of regular popped corn to my dogs. And, year after year I never did anything about the concept. No recipes, no drawings of marketing concepts, just a lot of talk and jokes.

So, imagine my surprise as I visited the pet food section in a supermarket and came upon Pup Corn!! OMG! I could hardly complain. It’s not like I had a product on the market and was being infringed upon. No, I had taken a perfectly great concept, but had no idea of how to implement the vision. You snooze, you lose. I guess the product came out in the last five years or so and has had a bumpy ride re quality assurance. Now when I mention Pup Corn, if I do, it will be feigned irritation over having been robbed of a great idea.

Chaos…a brew for the bad absolutes of chains?

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”   Nietzsche

Ah, the existentialist and chaos seekers rent the fabric of absolutes to free themselves of restraints, of the confines of judgement, to absolve themselves for freedom, no the need, to explore the dark side, the far side, the unknown. And, when we all do it, the guiding stars become ever more illusory. Ultimately we witness the chaos that we are now conditioned to not judge. Improper to judge because by what tablet would you judge it?

Chaos and seeming freedom versus order, restrictions, and yes judgement. Seems to be a lot of judgement still going on even by those that decree there are no absolutes? Somewhere all this searching for answers, self awareness, clarity, harmony will not be found in the chaos of relativism. We must stop excusing, justifying, condoning chaos when we see it.

Promoters of chaos maybe seek absolutes far more confining than those we ran from in our youth. Seek the stars, deny the chaos of agitators and the elixir of statism. Simply said, kindly meant. Ah, there I go again.

Taking a bite out of nature…….

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”

John Muir, The Mountains of California
