January - Fahrenheit 451 and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

I'm happy to report that I've made it through one month of my resolution, and I feel confident I'll be able to see this through until the end.

Garden Classes Start February 9

Even though the thermometer is going to dip well below zero in the next couple of days, this is the time to start thinking about spring. The seed catalogs (and reminder emails) are out en masse and there's no time like the present to start planning and get some seeds started so that they are ready to put in the ground by the middle of May.

 

If you have never started seeds before, it's really fun and an inexpensive way to get a jump on the season. I usually start two trays of…

The Value of Peer Editing

As a writer, we all want to write something amazing.  We want the reader to fall into the world we created; to get lost in our creative mind, and to emerge with a hunger for more.  That is what every person who ever wrote anything wants:  to either entertain or enlighten.  So how to do we get to that point?  How do we make this happen?

I’ve briefly mentioned a few idea’s in previous blogs, but I’d like to go into more detail with the one thing that has been the most important in my…

You Need To Read This If You or Someone You Know is on Cholesterol Medication

 

Shocking New Research on Statin Drugs

 

Do these drugs really work or are they causing more harm then good? 

Statins have never been shown to help women, they have never been shown to help men over the age of 65 and they have never helped anyone that has not already had a heart attack!

Statin drugs are actually carcinogenic in what they do to the body.  So they may lower cholesterol but they cause…

National School Choice Week: What this means for you!

January 23-29, 2011 has been designated National School Choice Week. (http://schoolchoiceweek.com/home) As I survey the educational landscape around the country, I often feel privileged to live in a state like Colorado where parents have a multitude of school, and non-school, options for educating their children.  As the parent of six children, we found that a one-size-fits-all approach was unworkable and really inappropriate for our children. …
