Well, it seems as though a hobby of mine and some friends has turned into a labor of love. We started making some gifts and accessories at the sewing machine for an upcoming craft show and it has turned into something over and above; as people have been viewing our crafts and then…requesting things of their own.

Let’s be honest, most children who are told that they must wear glasses will often not be thrilled with the idea of having to wear eyeglasses. For many children, it is the idea that others will make fun of them or, cause them to be viewed as being different from other children their own age. Being bullied because you are visually impaired and have to wear glasses can cause a child to refuse to wear them, out of fear of being made fun of.
No one want to be made to feel self conscious about themselves, especially at certain ages when it is most important to fit in with their peers. We’ve come along way since the days of having a choice between wearing heavy black plastic frames or wire frames that were basically your only choices.
Still, everyone likes to look their best and there are many fashion frames from which someone can choose to fit the shape of their face and their sense of style. On the other hand, if you are looking to change things up so that you don’t get bored with a certain look once you’ve purchased your eyeglass frames; there wasn’t much you could do except buy multiple sets of glasses…until now.

A man, Denis Beaudoin, who donated sperm for Nayda Suleman during a 3 year relationship, that they shared 10-12 years ago, suspects that he maybe the father of ,at least, her older six children; not to mention the possiblity of being the father of her 8 newborn babies. Nayda has been the focus of much speculation and news reporting since giving birth to the babies; she has been referred to as the Octo-mom in the press. All 14 of her children have been conceived by invitro fertilization. Nayda says that all of her children are the product of invitro-fertilization from the same sperm donor. Denis Beaudoin says that he knew Nayda Suleman when their friends nicknamed her giggles for her infectious laugh. (more…)

Depending on your view of a snow day, that probably tells me about your age, unless, you are an excitable kid at heart. Many adults find it hard to remember the extreme joy of a snow day. Adults get bogged down in the difficulty of driving in it, the danger of slipping on the snow and ice, the cost of heating their homes, and the inconvience of having heavy snow and ice removed from the sidewalk and the driveway. It’s not that those aren’t legitimate concerns…but, there is another side to a snow day; do you remember?
Kids, on the other hand, look at the rare snow day as a gift from God! LOL A sn0w day is like a reprieve from death row (school) to a kid. It is a day filled with endless possiblities, such as: sledding, ice skating, snow boarding, making snow angels, building a snowman, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, throwing snowballs…in other words…having a blast in the white stuff.
Thinking about the pristine, sparkly white snow; glittering on the surface of the trees and homes…what beautiful photos that would make. Send a photo to your friends, in other warmer states, who don’t get to enjoy the fluffy, white blanket that covers everything as far as the eyes can see.
So, depending on where you live; what will you do with your next “snow day”. Today, hmmmmm…it is full of possibilities to the kid in all of us. Maybe even for some of us older kids…it might just include snuggling up with a comforting cup of frothy, hot chocolate; and, reliving some of yesterday’s memories of OUR favorite snow day!

In less than an hour, Dancing With The Stars will premiere this years season opener. It will be a three night premiere. I can’t wait to see who starts out the season making a sparkling entrance and who will clearly make a splash. All of this year’s participants are interesting and talented in their own field…so it will be another season of fun…watching them grow and learn. The celebrities are skilled in athletics, acting, comedy and so on…so it will be cool to see them using teamwork with their professional dance instructors to perform each week. This first week, two yes i said two couple will leave the competition.
Watch it with me and feel the tension and competition mount as relationships are formed and the competitors become a fraternity with one another. It seems that each season has it’s own little close knit group. They have fun and challenge themselves and support other couples who they form friendships with. I wonder if they ever have reunions together? I think Mel B will be back on this season making cameo appearances. It is fun to see things through the former competitor’s eyes! Who are you rooting for and why?
