More importantly, how well does your dog know you?
Have you ever noticed that your dog does really well with sensory clues around them to react to? Web Watch remembers a former pet we had that would sleep in the corner all night long… but the one time that we knowingly get up to go to the refrigerator for a snack, they would wake right up and follow us to the kitchen.
Every. Single. Time.
It’s like they knew something, sensed something about what we were doing – and acted upon it.
Turns out, our observation isn’t that far from the truth discovered by scientists.
So the other day, Web Watch was out on the road and needed to get from our hotel to a restaurant a few miles away.
We definitely had choices available, as taking a taxi wasn’t our only option — and we didn’t necessarily need to have door-to-door service as being dropped off anywhere in the general neighborhood would have been perfectly acceptable.
But being on a tight budget, we wanted to know ahead of time how much our taxi ride was going to cost us.
Web Watch hears this phrase thrown about at the office by managers who feel overwhelmed by the constant influx of arriving email messages.
All they want to do is get their email inbox to read “0 messages”…. and hopefully keep it that way.
Web Watch understands the desire to have 0 waiting messages, but INBOX ZERO is a goal that not everyone can achieve — especially us, who receives upwards of 1000 emails a day across multiple email accounts. Granted, the vast majority of those messages are ones that can either be filed away or deleted without even being read or addressed — but that still is going to leave a few hundred emails each day that still need to be processed in some manner.
Having food poisoning is not pretty, either for you or those around you.
Web Watch knows – the one time it hit us, we were trying to enjoy a group outing while on a trip away from home. You’d be surprised how quickly getting that ill, that quickly will identify who your real traveling companions are (hint: that number is close to zero during that time period — when it comes to food poisoning, you’re going to be mainly on your own).
So what can you do to avoid getting food poisoning?
Unfortunately, the majority of food poisoning occurs while you’re away from home, eating at restaurants with poor health scores or who happened to receive tainted food themselves.
In other words, when you’re eating out, there’s not much you can do if someone serves you bad food that really, really disagrees with you.
Web Watch does get out to travel once in a while, and we do our best to try to present ourselves as a courteous tourist on occasion.
Lord knows, cities around the world have opened up their doors to welcome Web Watch and we want to be invited back. More times than we can count, our kindness to our hosts has been reciprocated back tenfold.
But there are places in this world where the residents look down on tourists with disdain.
