The area behind our home is wooded and a breeding ground for ticks. After your kids come in from playing outside it's always a good idea to check for ticks.

Very interesting perspective Lisa.  I'm interested to see how this plays out.
Today's Baseless Internet Outrage of the Day is brought to you by people who don't realize lip balm made from organic and natural ingredients can cause allergic reactions because – new flash! – most allergies are caused by things found in nature. Hay fever anyone?

This is a story about deodorant.

If you’ve been following along for a while, you know that one of my favorite sayings is “Together we can change the world“.

I’ve seen it happen over and over.

Here’s yet another example of how a small change can have a big impact-and the starring community in this story is none other than my very own.

Big news! Mars, Inc. recently announced that it will remove synthetic food dyes from its entire human food portfolio. Not only is this a step in the right direction, but Mars, Inc. has taken the lead on something that many of us have been fighting for over the past few years. Along with this monumental decision comes the hope that others in the food industry will recognize the need for change and follow along.

Mars, Inc. is the maker of M & M’s, Skittles, and many other food products.

Over the years I never gave much thought to mattresses. It was a place to rest our heads at night, with comfort being the prevailing factor. They were purchased on an as-needed basis.

And then I had a revelation. There’s so much more than comfort that needs to be taken into consideration when buying a new mattress for your bed. And it’s very confusing!
