Is wine the oldest drink?

We could think of it this way: the four basic flavor components in wine are sweet, acid, bitter, and tannin. We enjoy these flavors in drinks individually all the time. For sweet, think fruit juice; for acid, think lemonade; for bitter, think very dark cocoa or dark beer; and for tannin, remember your last cup of black tea. Add fizz and you have carbonated soda.



Wine combines all these flavors, including fizz occasionally – sounds disgusting, but isn’t! – in subtle, balanced doses,… Continue

Toxic Chemicals in Your Baby’s Shampoo

When my children were babies, I never suspected that there were toxic chemicals in their baby shampoo. I figured that these companies had been around for decades and could be trusted to be safe.



Well, I was in for a shock when I discovered that not only was baby shampoo unsafe, but so was baby bath, baby lotion, and baby powder. Now my mind was reeling – what was in MY shampoo and body wash? What about all the other personal care products my family and I used on a daily basis?… Continue

The Noggin Scale

I've been a stay at home mom now for 4 years and have run the gammit of children's television programming. Noggin, PBS Kids Sprout, and the Disney Channel have all graced our family room television and provided D (with his brothers soon to follow, I'm sure) hours of non-stop preschool entertainment and me with those cherished moments to sit on my computer and blog fold laundry, start dinner, or the holy grail of mommy-alone-time: peeing without interruption.



Of course, there are… Continue

Lack of options for expectant mothers of the Central Coast?

This was originally posted on my blog at www.centralcoasttoday.com.



--



After having been here nearly 8 months, I am still in shock about the lack of options for expectant moms in central coast.



I have come to learn that there are a couple of hospitals, and one or two home-birth midwives in the area as far as birthing options, and THAT IS IT.



The nearest freestanding birth clinic… Continue

Am I a bad parent if I spank my child

Does spanking your child really help? Is it an effective form of discipline? Do we as parents sometimes have guilt associated with spanking our children? I know my parents and many others like them believed in the old saying, "Spare the rod, spoil the child." One thing for sure spanking does interrupt misbehavior. To many parents spanking is considered acceptable as long as the parent or guardian uses self control. Spanking can teach a child right from wrong and a child who is spanked… Continue

"Rambo Ryan" is leaving for a tour of Afghanistan

My big sister, Sue's husband, Fallon and Charlene's dad, "Rambo Ryan", is heading to Afghanistan - courtesy of the U.S. Army. Ryan leaves tomorrow - April 11th - can you believe they could not wait two days and allow him to spend Easter with his family? I guess I can.



Ryan will be gone for a year or more - I cannot believe we just got "Military Mike" back and now we are sending off another family member to this crazy war. Sometimes life… Continue

happy mama day

It used to be on the birthdays of our children my friends and I would always arrive with flowers for the mother. We all celebrated the fact that the day was a special one for us as well. Every year without fail, I mark my son's birthday by remembering what took place at each hour or so on the day he was born. This year I am going to keep vigil here as well. I have never written the story down though is it a well worn tale in our house as Max loves to hear about the day he helped us to become a… Continue

for the light and dark are both alike to you...



For the darkness and light are both alike to you….

Janet Morley





A baby is born. Light enters the darkness.



Where will the light of your new child shine?



What is the darkness that the babe will illuminate?



Our child uncovers a capacity within us for love so deep that we find spaces in ourselves that we never knew existed. The baby also brings what is dark within us out into the light. This darkness has… Continue

Our First Easter Egg Hunt

Hi Everyone,



I just wanted to extend greetings to you all today and to wish you all Happy Passover! and Happy Easter!



Wanted to share with you a post I just did on my blog called Our First Easter Egg Hunt. Here's an excerpt:



The day didn’t start off with singing birds and warm sunny skies…Oh no…it had to be cold, gray and gloomy with a wicked brisk wind.



As I was happily crashing my toy trucks and trains into the blocks and into the wall…

Am I the only one who keeps something useless around the house?

I have an old towel. It's ripped and old and I would never use it. But still it sits in my hall closet. I can't throw it out because it makes me laugh every time I see. Not because it's ripped and I'm laughing at my insanity for keeping it. No, it makes me laugh because of the story behind it:

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who has a useless item at home… Continue

Frustrated!!!

I have worked diligently on my mystery blog (on another blogging site), only to find out that the website I've been handing out isn't working. I've tried to solve the problem, but can't figure it out...and of course, the troubleshooting guide isn't exactly helpful. I was so excited about starting a blog. It was, or is, my way of getting back into writing. I have to keep telling myself that the day is still young and I'm brighter than what I sometimes give myself credit for. When I get it all… Continue

Budget Bombshell Part One!

Let’s face it: our country is having some…economic issues, to put it mildly! This recession is affecting everyone from the film industry to the blue-collar industry and every man, woman and child in between. You can’t run and you can’t hide, but what you can do is take control of your wallet and decide how to spend your dollars wisely!
