I have been focusing so much on holiday preparations this week that I haven't been paying too much attention to my online life. I am looking forward to doing a lot more with this group in the New Year. (My sense is we're probably all pretty much maxed out right now, anyway.) However, I will share noteworthy posts that I spot under the categories listed in the sidebar on the left (Pregnancy News, Parenting News, etc.) as I spot relevant items -- and I would encourage you to do the same. Hope you're having a terrific week.

Introduce Yourself....  - 
 
I guess I'd better post something so that you don't arrive to find an empty board. (That's kind of like finding an empty coffee pot -- not very welcoming.) Once you arrive, please take a moment to introduce yourself. Thanks! PS -- I'm Ann Douglas, author of a number of books about pregnancy and parenting, including The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and The Mother of All Baby Books; Toronto Star columnist; Canadian Family contributing editor; and (most recently) Trent Radio host and producer. (I host and produce shows about writing and parenting/social justice.) My parenting website is http://www.having-a-baby.com.

Decided I should pop my head in over here. Definitely need to spend some time cleaning up my account. Appear to have attracted a lot of faux followers while I was AWOL.

"The team can't afford to lose 1 in 5 from the game." "There's still love going on and love coming in." Love it this global campaign for mental health and suicide prevention.

The anti-spam filters seem to be working well in Google Communities. I'm impressed. A couple of non-spammish posts were tagged as "possibly spam" -- and made invisible until I could review them. (They weren't spam, by the way.)

We're stocking up on extra water and non-perishables at our place. Are you prepared for this -- or future -- severe weather warnings? As someone noted to me at a recent Red Cross Canada event, it's not a matter of WHETHER we're going to need the supplies in our emergency preparedness kits. It's a matter of WHEN. (That's not being paranoid. That's being prepared.)

"Mr. Charest has refused to use the traditional means of mediation in a representative democracy, leading to even more polarization. His administration, one of the most right-wing governments Quebec has had in 40 years, now wants to shut down opposition."
