As a big Webkinz fan, I’ve recently joined their eStore’s new Deluxe membership program.  I purchased the full year membership for one account.  Making this purchase was somewhat confusing and extremely slow, but I suspect both of these things will be worked over the next few days.  What is the Deluxe membership?  Basically you purchase […]

REVIEW: Steve Pavlina’s “Personal Development for SMART PEOPLE”

I first heard of Steve Pavlina about five years ago. While I’d been a vegan for a few months (and vegetarian for quite a while before that), my children were just starting to explore this lifestyle (they have been vegetarian their whole lives and vegan for the past several years).
