Pi Day Pies

Ever since the first year I homeschooled Hannah, we’ve observed March 14th as Pi Day- as March 14th is 3-14 in America. We bake and eat pies, and learn about circles. Since Jack is doing Algebra this year, circles aren’t part of his math curriculum right now, but it’s still been a tradition for nearly […]

Remembering Ben

Last Thursday night and Friday was Ben’s first Yahrzeit; the anniversary of his death on the Hebrew calendar. The kids and I got together with his sisters and their spouses on Friday morning to visit his grave and remember him. We haven’t gotten the official gravestone yet, and I don’t know if we’ll have another […]

Our community participates in the Women’s Heart Health Day with a luncheon and a 5 K run. This year, the Line Dancing Class I participate in was invited to perform […]

Utilizando suplementos de manera inteligente

A los suplementos en general se les define como derivados alimenticios, vitaminas, minerales y hierbas de procedencia no toxica. Existe mucha información sobre suplementos en Internet, y no todo esta reglamentado o aprobado por el FDA o deba ser tomado a la ligera.

“Sitting is the new smoking”

Twice in the past year or so I have done blogs about how poor health may be related to sitting. Since then, I have made an effort to get up once an hour, even when I am involved in a detailed computer project, and move around. I keep a list of chores and short projects […]

Re-Learning to Pace Myself

There have been a lot of changes in my life lately. Leah moved out to her own apartment on January 1st. She’s enjoying her newfound freedom and likes the community she’s moved into, but she’s still close enough to visit often. She’s still not quite done collecting things she wants from this house. And we’re […]

New Year – Fluoride free

Fluoride has been a hot button issue with me for 30 years – probably more. I remember being disappointed after my first child was born when my doctor (who I respected) told me to give him fluoride drops but not vitamins. I remember getting in the fight to keep fluoride out of the city where […]

Christmas Brunch

We celebrated Christmas with family on the first weekend of December. As my father used to say, “It doesn’t matter what day it is as long as we are together.” There are now several families involved in our Christmas, and the best thing for everyone concerned was for us to have an early Christmas. There […]
