We can all give in little ways that make a huge difference. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t want their children to be kind and generous people who grow up with a desire to make contributions. There is no question that the best way to teach kids is through role modeling. At Mabel’s Labels we wanted our work lives to reflect that value, so over a year ago we started a Community Relations Committee. We recently had a look at what we have accomplished and it left us with a decent case of the warm… Continue

At a popular Australian pool last week, Matthew Kennedy, an 8-year old boy with autism, a severe speech impediment and learning difficulties, recognized that Emily, a 3-year old girl, was in distress. He jumped in, grabbed her arms, lifted her head above the water and pulled her out of the pool. Emily was unconscious and foaming at the mouth. Matthew’s father and the lifeguard began CPR, Emily began to breathe again and she was taken to the emergency room, still alive.
There are two… Continue

I must admit , that although I save money with buying alot of my food items on clearance, I have only recently started paying more attention to club pack and warehouse items. I certainly can see where the money saved will add up, by buying this way.It will also save on more frequent trips to the grocery store.
Today I bought a case of soup for example that would have normally costed me $1.07 a can, but by buying the case, I only paid $5.99 for the case. Saving me $6.85 on… Continue

This recipe also fits for the holiday - squash for autumn, zucchini is one of them. I also use this recipe to trick my toddler to eat vegetable. I fed her all kinds of fruits and vegetables since she was 5 months, and I feel a little bit upset when she changed her palate when she turned 2 years old.
This recipe is not too sweet, it tastes good, and it is way healthier. This recipe has all the fiber goodness of whole wheat, nutrients… Continue

Each night I begin my children's goodnight routine by asking "What are you thankful for?"
They always come up with an answer, and the simplicity of those answers reminds me how much it really is the little things that matter most.
Luke usually has the same answer: "Popcorn." This isn't a totally random response -- Luke loves popcorn.
Ashley is more thoughtful -- or at least more diverse -- in her replies.
Sometimes it's the type of things you'd… Continue

If you want to make a little bit of extra money on the side, as well as get some freebies at the same time, you may wish to try mystery/secret shopping.As well as shops I do in town, we ventured out for a few jobs I had in another town- an hour away. It was worth the drive. For one job,( and I can't mention which places I visited), I was given a 10 piece chicken supper with the works plus paid $10. For another job we visited a grocery store-I got to evaluate a few departments, shop for $15… Continue

Communicating is an art. It is a learned skill. There are many ways to communicate, however for the purpose of this discussion we are going to focus on the verbal form of communicating.
Verbal communication is generally defined as the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and opinions through the process of speaking and listening. Communication is the glue that “connects” two people.
The art of communicating takes place when a thought, idea, or opinion is put forth toward another… Continue

"Can you get rid of the commercials?" Ashley asks the second a commercial interupts Scooby Doo.
Because Ashley is often watching a cartoon that has been recorded on the DVR, it is usually possible to get rid of the commercials. But I have to admit I often have mixed feelings when she makes this request.
On the one hand, I'm not eager for her to be exposed to rampant commercialism. And I've seen far too often how a commercial can instantly create a desire for some toy that… Continue

Are you an entrepreneur, artist, blogger, musician, or writer who wants to make a decent living? You can! I already blogged about how I heard David Mathison speak about using social media to market what you are passionate about and to use social media to your advantage. His book, Be The Media
, goes into much detail about how you only need 1000 true fans to make a decent living. That seems entirely doable!
Be The Media
is one of those book you want all of your family and… Continue

The book is what I am working on promoting right now.
I had a bigger book store turn it down though since the name wasn't on the spine of the book.As well, they said because we showed photos of older bills, people may… Continue

I found an old crush from elementary school. I didn’t find him on Facebook. I did it the old-fashioned way. I road my bike passed his house seven times a day until one day he finally came out to get his mail and I said, “Warren? Warren Beatty? Fancy meeting you here!”
Okay. Not really. That’s the OLD old-fashioned way. I internet stalked and I found my first Asian crush with the famous American actor’s name when I was doing research for a manuscript I was writing. I was hovering over… Continue

Well, my babies are growing up. It’s so sad. Just today my youngest son told me he was moving out. Sigh, how the days go by…
Jordan: Mommy, I’m a big boy now.
Me (as I am giving my “big boy” a bath): Yes you are, honey.
J: I’m gonna grow this tall and be big like you.” Stretches up on his tippy toes and holds his hand about 3 inches above where his head is.
Me: Oh, my. That is big.
J: I’m so big, I want a green car.
Me (startled giggle): Oh, do you now?… Continue
