 Great tools to assist you in serving healthy and fresh meals to your familyIn case you haven’t noticed, we are smack dab in the middle of devastating economic conditions.  No sector of business is unaffected.  Almost all companies are downsizing (some by tens of thousands), closing locations, or going completely out of business.  Many Americans are holding their breath each work day, hoping they will survive the latest round of pink slips. Times are extremely uncertain and scary for so many Americans.

How to plan and execute a perfect birthday party

My five-year-old son, Landon, has been invited to a birthday party on Saturday.  That’s the same day that my oldest daughter, Alanna, turns into an official teenager-thrilling 13.  Actually, Alanna is a leap year baby, having been born February 29th, 1996.  So her actual birthday only comes every four years.  We often get asked on which day we celebrate her birthday when it’s not a leap year. Our solution is simple; we pick the nearest Saturday and celebrate!  Often the celebration lasts for a few days, and our children really enjoy that.  Whether attending a birthday party or hosting one, the costs can get quite pricey.

Recapturing the Love of the Good ‘Ol Days

Do you remember Luther Vandross’ slow jam, “Here and Now?” Lately I’ve been strolling down “Memory Lane,” listening to many of the popular love songs from back in the day. I was reminded that many of those old-school jams hold the secret to true romance. In those songs, there was an element of mystery, innuendos, and implications. Today in our microwave society, we no longer take the time to romance our spouses and sweethearts.

Change is in the air! Can you smell it?

Change is in the air! Can you smell it? Many of us are still high off of one of the biggest changes we will ever experience: Barack Obama’s inauguration.  I wasn’t able to attend the inaugural events, but as I sat glued to my television screen I felt an energy that I knew would have been 10 times greater if I had been there. Inspired by one man’s accomplishment, millions of people descended upon Washington D.C. motivated to be a part of history, and many went through great lengths to be there. There were reports of people who slept in office buildings, participated in contests, traveled cross country by bus or car.  People did whatever they needed to get to Washington, DC.
