The house is still. The only noise I hear is the hum of the refrigerator. I’m basking in the quiet and trying to make it last as long as I can. Because…today is the last day of school. A day I’ve been dreading more than a gynecological visit or a root canal.

School is ending and it is time for teacher appreciation. Our nation's teachers work very hard educating the future of America. As the school year comes to a close (for most of us), it is a great time to show them that we recognize and value their hard work. Below are some gift ideas for your child's favorite teacher(s).
From personal experience (being married to a teacher), I can tell you…Continue

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours. She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures. Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards. The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.
Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple…Continue

My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed…Continue

Avoid harmful chemicals by using Natural Weed Killer. Stop worrying about your children and pets playing in the yard because of pesticides.
Pesticides are harmful to people, animals and the environment. Using pesticides can actually kill soil organisms that contribute to a healthy lawn. If you have been using harsh chemicals to keep your lawn beautiful it can take a few years for the soil to recover.

"The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance.…Continue

In 2003 my husband and I moved to China. We lived in Beijing for two years.
Not a lengthy amount of time – certainly not long enough for me to claim expert status on Chinese people or their customs – but just long enough for me to accumulate lots of stuff. If you’ve ever lived overseas you probably know what I’m talking about. While shopping in fantastic open-air markets, quite often a small, very persistent and somewhat annoying voice whispers in your ear: “You may never…Continue

I went to visit the College of Charleston last weekend with my daughter and met a nice kid who recently moved to the area from the Northeast. A job opportunity brought him there which led us to a conversation on colleges. He's a recent graduate from James Madison University and is $50,000 in debt. His story is like a lot of kids' and they are questioning whether going to college is really worth it? According to the Project on Student Debt, the average debt carried by college grads…Continue

I've been blessed many times in my life and for that reason, I believe in paying it forward. Whether it's by helping other writers through the Liberty States Fiction Writers or participating in various charitable events, I think it's the right thing to do.
That's why I never hesitate to contribute to the Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research. This…
