It’s summertime in the desert and we’re eager to spend time outside with our furry friends! Whether you plan on swimming, hiking, or barbecuing in your backyard, here are a few safety tips to consider before taking on the summer heat.
You and your pet aren’t the only ones’ ready to soak up the sun. As the weather heats up, snakes, toads, and other creepy crawlies begin emerging. Remember to check paws for parasites, stay on trails, avoid large rocks or areas with dense foliage, and keep your pet on a leash during summer nights, when snakes are most active. Snake anti-venom can cost between $450-$700 per vial, and multiple vials may be necessary.

I consider myself the type of person to give 110% in any relationship, even if it’s failing. The thing is, I don’t give up on people. That’s just not me. But unbelievably (and you can ask anyone I dated up until my junior year of high school to confirm) past boyfriends have told me that they didn’t think I cared about them.

As a female, I am no stranger to being put in a position where one of my guy friends has to act as my "boyfriend" in social scenarios. I know that many other women my age have been put there too when a strange guy won't leave them alone. This situation is honestly so common that your guy friends won't even question it and you may be wondering where I could be possibly taking this. Having a fake boyfriend may seem harmless, but in reality, it unveils a darker side to society.

Thinking about moving but haven’t made the final jump? Here are a few signs that it’s time to pack up and move on this year.

If you’re suffering from an empty-nest, downsizing may be a sensitive subject but it will save you money in the long run and energy spent on upkeep. Whether or not kids are involved in the picture, it’s always a good idea to be located near a great school district or park.
Your commute is a hassle. If you absolutely hate how long it takes you to get...
