The Eating Game

I'm not sure what happened to my middle child, who is now 9 years old. Sometime between the ages of two and three, he dramatically changed his eating habits. Alex went from being the "Baby Who Ate

Broccoli" to "Mr. Picky Eater".


As a toddler, Alex had a pretty diverse pallet. He ate steak, broccoli, mashed potatoes, chicken, hot dogs, apples, oranges, grapes, ... the list goes

on. One by one he developed food phobias and dropped to only a handful

of items he would… Continue

Sign-in Saturday & Show Yourself Sunday

Recently when blog-surfing I noticed a few blogs that asked for lurkers

to identify themselves. I thought this was a great request. I am a

relatively new blogger ( March of '07 ), and am a feedback junkie. I

don't have advertisers and need some sort of acknowledgement.



I noticed certain days have themes: Wordless Wednesday, Four for Friday.... and decided to create my own blog day.

Drum Roll..........… Continue

Tis The Season - To Use Your God-Given Talents

Just when I thought I couldn't take any more depressing Holiday news

stories, I saw this gem of an article that left me choked up. It has

all the makings of a Holiday classic. I bet Hollywood will buy the

story rights and make a movie!



The Rev. Hamilton Coe Throckmorton gave each adult in his congregation $50 and the goal of

using their God-given talents to double the money to raise funds for

the church's mission work.



To find out what happened, click… Continue

Tis The Season To Be Careful

Tomorrow is Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, which marks the first official shopping day of the Holiday Season. Most people have the day off, unless you work retail or if you are a thief. Criminals never get a holiday and this is their busy season. I have a few tips to help you avoid being an easy mark for thieves.



  1. Be aware of your surroundings. Keep your packages and belongings with you at all times. Before you get in or out of your car, scan the parking lot…

Making Santa P.C.

OH NO! Say it isn't so! Is Santa another misogynistic male? Apparently

controversy over his use of the " Ho, Ho, Ho " greeting has broken out

in Australia.



The furore erupted after recruitment company Westaff suggested its Santas swap 'ho, ho, ho' for 'ha, ha, ha' because the traditional term could

be viewed as derogatory towards women and could…

Free Money

The other day I was driving with my favorite 6 year old back-seat

driver. Out of the clear blue, he asked me if I could take him to

National City Bank. When I inquired why, he told me he wanted to open

an account there.



"Why do you want to switch banks?" I asked.



"Because you can earn points and get free checking!" he replied.



In the discussion that followed, my future banker explained what he thought free checking meant.

He thought you could write… Continue

Child Labor in the United States

While activists take aim at sweatshops and factories that violate labor

laws overseas, there is a growing problem here in the U.S. This issue

affects children as young as pre-school age and is common place in our

Elementary Schools.



It starts out seeming innocuous with fliers and booklets that are sent home in September. Soon the propaganda is

spread in school assemblies. Before parents realize it, their children

are brainwashed into becoming door to door… Continue
