Collagen for Cats and Dogs

I am always writing about the health benefits for humans but not very often about our pets. Today I was making a veggie, meat and bone broth mix for my friends Staffy. Smelt so good and it tasted good. Might even have some for my dinner. 

My Recipe

I boiled up bones from the butcher + a few herbs, ginger and turmeric for several hours and let it cool over night. I then took all the meat off the bones and the marrow out of the bones. Threw away the bones. I then added vegetables (beans, tomatoes, broccoli, celery, potatoes, corn, and some beef  powder to thicken (organic) then I added beef pieces and cooked it till the veggie’s were cooked added a little salt and pepper. When it is cooled I will put it in separate containers and feed her a portion of it every day with her breakfast. Honestly it is good stuff.

The Best Movie Seen in Years – ‘The Greatest Showman’

Did my Friday movie thing and went to see  ” The Greatest showman”  10 out of 10 for everything music, story, talent. It was just an amazingly beautiful story. It was the story of P.T. Barnum. For those who don’t know P.T. Barnum, he was a visionary who became a world-wide sensation.  American showman P. T. Barnum becomes the founder of the circus that will become the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Wikipedia for more of the history of the story)

It’s a movie that if you are pondering about what to do after Christmas dinner, take the whole family including Dad and go see this movie. You will love it.

Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya, michelle Williams. in fact all the cast was sensational. The songs all through the show gave me goose bumps and at time tears and so entertained. Would go see it again in fact I probably will. Go See it – just do it – Sensational movie  – feeling a bit down? go see it, you can’t possibly feel the blues after watching it. Ok enough.
