Zaffron is Leary of Mitt Romney

Russell and I decided to watch the Star Wars series with the kids. We've seen the first two movies (four and five) and we're just about to start the animated series, The Clone Wars, before moving on to the third movie.

It had been a few weeks since the last movie. Zaffy bugs us every day to continue with the series. She's discovered that boys love to talk "Star Wars" and she…

Are You For or Against Health Care Reform and Why?

I am wondering how many parents are like me in their inability to keep up to date on political issues. It is frustrating to say the least, to not have the time to listen to the news or to read the newspapers and whenever I do get the chance to get better informed I usually wind up either in tears and angry from reality or completely confused.



Listening to educated people is my alternative and I try to listen to all sides so that I can make my own opinions. One of the most important… Continue

Respecting Those in Authority- a Call Out to Mothers

Moms tend to set the moral barometer in the home, teaching children about table manners, acceptable social skills and the need to respect adults and those in authority. We navigate the sassy years, the rebellious years, and the defiant years believing that with any luck, the values we’ve instilled in our offspring will take root and bear fruit. That they will learn to engage in lively discussions without becoming boorish, that they will listen respectfully to teachers, professors and eventually… Continue

Earth Promise: New Green Mileage Standards

New automobile emissions standards are on the right track. President Obama is serious when it comes to fighting our global warming dilemma, creating new eco-related jobs and reducing our ongoing dependence on foreign oil. By 2016, all auto makers are required to make new cars and trucks get 30 percent better mileage. It will be a gradual phasing in process with the 2011 new automobile models. Initially, it will cost the consumers a bit more per vehicle, but these “new… Continue

President Barack Obama Delivers Commencement Speech at ASU



Dear Friends,



I know this is out of cycle for my newsletter but I really wanted to share this with you.



As you probably know, President Barack Obama is due to arrive in Arizona at any moment now to deliver the commencement speech at ASU. I am aware how hard the security services in Arizona are working behind the scenes for this historic occasion and I wanted to give a shout out to them first of all. And I know there has…

Aneesh Chopra - CTO For Us

As a technology person, I was excited to hear about President Obama appointing Aneesh Chopra as the U.S.’s first chief technology officer. I like to think of him as the first chief technology officer for us, the people. With so much talk in the past about how backwards and behind our government is in the technology space, this is a breath of fresh… Continue

Earth Promise blog: Green Thumb or Not; Change Your Eating Habits

Michelle Obama’s White House garden is inspiring. The First Lady’s agricultural endeavor both introduces and reminds people to get closer to the land; to conserve Earth’s precious resources; and the importance of growing their own healthy food. For some people this is feasible; for others, both time and natural space interfere with this green-thumb movement. There are many accessible sites to help start your own garden, whether it’s an herb garden in your window sill, planting a fruit tree, or… Continue

Revive the Victory Garden

The other day I was helping my nine year old study for her Social Studies test. The topic: World War II focusing on food rationing and Victory Gardens. How appropriate in today’s atmosphere of uncertainty.



Originally, Victory Gardens were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted in private residences during World War I and II to primarily ease the demands on the public food supply brought on by the war. But these gardens were also morale boosters. What a perfect… Continue

OBAMA!!

Last week we got a new president but I didn't take time to write a blog about how I felt on that historic day. One reason I didn't write about it was because his inauguration fell on the same day as my anniversary, and of course MY life is a million times more important than the other historic event that day.



Ok fine, so maybe I'm NOT all that important, but truth be told I thought it would be nice to give everyone a break from the incredible Barack overload we experienced that day.… Continue

Will Michelle Obama become a new role model for Moms?

Today is the day that Michelle Obama gets to tour the White House for the first time.

This will become her home for the next 4, and possible 8, years.

In a bit more that 70 days, Michelle Obama will assume the role as first lady of the United States of America.



It has been a while since there has been a 'family' living in the white house.

Chelsea Clinton to be exact. Like Chelsea, the Obama girls, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, will grow up in the view of the public eye. How… Continue
