As a former television news producer, this clip of Kermit the Frog, reporter, never fails to crack me up. In it, he is at the scene of breaking news - an ongoing, live accident scene. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall.
The kids love it because it's a nursery rhyme they know mixed in with with intense imagery, so that they are both familar with…

So Facebook Causes has teamed up with the flower folks and has an awesome partnership... When you use THIS LINK to order flowers for your honey or whomever, $10 of your order will go to our project! How cool is that? We thought so too. So, yes, Valentine's Day flowers cost a fortune, but at least when you do it this way some of it is going to support indie film and is…Continue

Playing on Facebook can get you a job - I'm not talking about Farmville, though I'm sure there must be something for which those skills can be used. While Facebook is thought of by many as a way to pass the time, the social network has broad business applications if you use it right. And it's only one of many networking, aggregating, blogging and mini-blogging sites out there, all of which can be used to pad your resume.…

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother. Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.
One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

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…

With the recent death of both grandpas, I was left feeling like I needed a bit of help and support. I had six jetlagged kids up at random hours (some with fevers),…Continue

Two years ago I was pregnant with my sixth baby and boarded a 15 hour flight with my five small children. I was horrified to discover that the airline had put me beside a small child…Continue

There is no manual that pops out with the baby that tells you exactly how to raise a child. So what do we do? We ask friends, family or buy books. The problem with that is we are getting advice from someone else's experiences based on their own environment, family dynamic, genetics, issues or talents. We need to find out who WE are first and then raising a child will be easy. How do we do that? The only way to find answers is to ask questions.
The glitch is that we need to be…Continue

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.) She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."

She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…
