The Network is NOT the Computer

There’s a popular cyclical argument amongst computer people. Some believe that the future of computers is the network (a standard Google is touting). Other’s believe it is the computer itself. Whichever camp people are in, they usually tout their argument vehemently. I’m not so vehement in my beliefs on this topic, but I have thought […]

Where Does Calcium Come From?

Ask any person today where calcium comes from and 99 times out of 100, you’ll hear: Dairy, cheese, milk, or calcium fortified orange juice. I find it fascinating how the milk industry has used this marketing gimmick so effectively that practically everyone I have ever met truly and honestly believes this myth. Let’s start over. […]

T-Shirts, Clocks, and More

We’ve tried Zazzle, Cafe Press, and the several other online t-shirt stores. They each have their own pros and cons. For the most part, I keep going back to Cafe Press and Zazzle. I absolutely love the postage stamps I’ve made through the Zazzle website with my very own photographs and computer designs. Tip: Sign […]

Cheesy Vegan Lasagna

After watching a fun McDougall M.D. episode (they are 30 minute shows shown once per week), we made a yummy vegan lasagna based on a recipe on the show. My daughters enjoyed making it! Ingredients: 1 package uncooked whole wheat lasagna noodles 1 package lite tofu 1 package vegan mozzarella cheese – cut however you […]

Saguaro Fruit Harvesting

My family and I live on an acreage south of Tucson, Arizona. We are fortunate enough to have land with many mature saguaros (as evidenced by many of my photographs on this site). We’ve owned our land for four years and we’ve lived on it for slightly over two. In those years, we’ve never quite […]

Route 66 in Arizona

We thought we were in the movie Cars when we saw this little motel in Holbrook, AZ. We almost stayed there, but their office was closed when we wanted to get a room. The other photos are from Route 66 too.

Pretending to be Indiana Jones PART ONE

We’re huge Indiana Jones fans around here; we all loved the new movie (I thought it was the best one yet) and we’ve been working our way through The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Volume One – The Early Years, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Volume Two – The War Years, and The Adventures […]

Which Virtual Pet Should You Choose?

My family and I (two daughters, ages 11.5 and 7.5) have been able to play with a variety of virtual pets over the past year and we’ve compared them side-by-side. The ones we’ve tried are: Webkinz, Shining Stars, Ty Beanie Babies 2.0, My ePets, and Ty Girlz. If any other company would like my family […]

Is Your Shower Curtain Making You Sick?

Many items in a typical American home make the humans and pets in them unhealthy. Sometimes the effects are immediate, like in the case of some cleaning products. And, sometimes the effects take a bit longer. On this website, I like to tell as many people as possible about some of the common unhealthy products […]

Goals, Again

Goals are important. Without them, we flounder, wither, and die (if not physically, then certainly emotionally and psychologically). Yet, no one can truly make goals for anyone other than themselves. This is a trap parents often get into. It’s inevitable — we have dreams and desires for our children. There is nothing wrong with that. […]
