Okay, so I don’t have anything good to post. I think that this heat is frying my brain.

I knew I hadn’t posted in a while, but I can’t believe that it’s been this long! My last post was Tuesday.
My oldest son just came home from being in Florida for three weeks, so my husband took a couple of days off work and we have been having family time (after a LONG ride [...]

I was just reading another enlightening column by Peter Freyne of Seven Days, in which he compares the healthcare systems of the US to that of the UK (in the context of a Tarrant commercial).
He points out that “when it comes to deaths from cardiovascular diseases, the UK’s single-payer system beats the U.S. — 181.8 [...]

I hate to use this blog as a product promotion, but I had to tell people about this.
My family tries to use natural products when it comes to lotions, soaps, dish detergent, etc., but often it is hard to find products that are affordable and actually work. It seems that some companies are more concerned [...]
