For an informed yet practical approach to plastics safety, we consulted two experts who also happen to be parents:

By Barbara MahanyPrint Article
RISMEDIA, February 17, 2009-(MCT)-For as long as there have been plates and forks and hungry folk who have polished off a meal, there’s been the art-nay, chore-of doing dishes. As recently as 1970, 8 out of 10 American households got the job done the old-fashioned way: scrubbing with soap and sponge. Not so, of late. As of 2005, the latest available statistics tell us nearly 74% of U.S. households now have a dishwasher. A machine that does…

Outdoor Living Trends

Aloha Friday!

Outdoor living spaces spruced up are a great way to create an inside room outside!
This idea has become very popular. I see wonderful examples of outdoor safe furniture and "bling" at the local Lowes and Home Depots. If you are wanting to sell you home this is an idea that you can invest in to sell your home now and move with you to use at your new home. An outdoor room is excellent for entertaining, bbq's and just plain relaxin'! With just a few accessories you can update your plain boring Lania into something exciting and new!
