By now, you've probably crawled into the attic or dug through the hall closet to retrieve your family's Christmas decorations to prepare for trimming your home and tree. Maybe you've picked up a few decorating tips and have decided to try out a new look this year. I know someone who has multiple trees with different themes. One is the "homey" tree with all of the kids' homemade ornaments, colored lights, and the same light-up angel that has been topping the family's tree since 1972. Her second tree is all crystal, gold, and silver ornaments set off with white lights. That one goes in front of the window of her living room. Finally, there is a tree in the front yard with blue lights and huge, globe ornaments to add some holiday pizzazz to the neighborhood. Women love to decorate, maybe not all as much as my friend, but the holidayhs are a fun opportunity to let out our inner Martha. Sometimes the best redecorating project begins with downsizing. We shouldn't be afraid to toss outRead More »from Menopause Mondays: Re-decorate My What? is Hysterectomy the Right Theme This Holiday?

It wasn't long ago a friend of mine had found himself in a desperate situation. His credit was on the verge of being ruined. Well, to be honest it was basically nil, but he was an honest man and his intentions were to make right on some of the financial decisions he had made in the past that didn't work out. His creditors didn't care so much about his nobility though, they just wanted what was owed, and unlike a loan from a friend or family member, due dates are usually final, and repercussions begin immediately when the agreements are not met. Well I had experienced some credit difficulties of my own at various points in my life much like the rest of us. I had become fairly astute at seeking out professional advice and suggested he do the same. However, I learned quickly from speaking with him that I was never in the kind of financial debt he was currently in. It was going to take the help of some legitimate credit repair companies to dig this poor guy out from underneath theRead More »from Need a Credit Report Company?
I live in the city by myself, and have a family living next door to me who's son I often baby sit for when they need a few hours out in the evening on occasion. I adore the little guy and though I never wanted children of my own, I have to say I enjoy sitting down and helping him with his homework or watching a ball game. He's just around the age where he will be going to high school in a year or so, and the world will continue to get bigger with cell phones, cars, girls, and yes credit cards. When you talk to kids about the economy and credit crisis this, or debt crisis that, their eyes glaze over. He openly dreads if I flip to CNN during a break from the game, so I don't spend too much time talking about the "real" world with him. I'll leave that up to his parents. But recently some scary stuff happened to him involving things previously mentioned. How might a child be at risk of being in a debt crisis before they've even owned a credit card? I heard the couple arguing overRead More »from How Could a Child's ID Be Stolen?
DO YOU KNOW ME, DO YOU KNOW WHY I AM
CAN YOU HEAR ME, WHAT MY HEART TRIES TO SAY?
DO YOU FEEL ME, HERE, WHERE I AM, THE PAIN, HOPELESSNESS,
YOU CAN'T KNOW FOR YOU ARE NOT ME, YOU, CANNOT KNOW ME,
YOU CANNOT HEAR WHAT THE VOICES IN MY HEART, ARE SAYING,
YOU CANNOT FEEL THE PAIN, OR KNOW THE HOPELESSNESS, FOR YOU DON'T KNOW ME.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THINGS MY EYES HAVE SEEN,
ABUSE, DRUGS, HUNGER AND FEAR?
DO YOU CARE WHERE MY LIFE HAS BEEN?
DO YOU KNOW, CAN YOU SEE MER HERE?
HAVE YOU EVER CRIED, FOR A CHILD'S PAIN
FELT THE STING OF A FIST IN YOUR FACE, OR
SEEN YOUR CHILD TAKEN AWAY, TO A PLACE,
WHERE DECISIONS ARE NOT HIS OWN?
YOU DON'T KNOW ME, YOU DO NOT FEEL MY PAIN,
YOUR HEART IS NOT HEAVY FROM ALL YOU HAVE
BEEN OR SEEN.
I COULD NEVER LET YOU IN,
DO YOU KNOW? HOW COULD YOU KNOW!!!
YOU DON'T KNOW ME...........

Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" but he didn't mean the kind of food we are being exposed to now a days such as Genetically Modified Foods. GMO's are food items that have had their DNA changed through genetic engineering. Unlike conventional genetic modification that is carried out through time-tested conventional breeding of plants and animals. Combining genes from different organisms is known as recombinant DNA technology, and the resulting organism is said to be genetically modified, genetically engineered, or transgenic.
California recently came very close to passing the first statewide initiative in America that would have mandated the labeling of food if genetically modified organisms (GMO's) were an ingredient. Prop 37 was known as the "The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act."
The initiative was defeated when over one million dollars a day by big companies were pumped into deceptive advertising in the finalRead More »from Would You Knowingly Poison Yourself?
