It’s all about Bamboo. Sometimes.

 

IMG_0811I’m a huge supporter of sustainability.  And I love the versatility and strength of bamboo, so I was particularly excited by NatureZway sending me a few of their eco-friendly cleaning solution products to test and review.

I tested Bamboo Perforated Towels (washable and reusable)  and the Bamboo Floor Wipes.   My business by day is pet services (including dog boarding) so I’m constantly and chronically wiping up everything from water spills to pee accidents and more. So I was ready to get cracking the minute the box arrived.  And I have good news and bad news on both...

The science behind the chocolate chip cookie

 

About 15 years ago…just when my daughter had mastered the art of asking for a cookie, I re-introduced myself to the world of baking and cooking.  I’d been a single corporate businesswoman for so long, that cooking had fallen way, way out of my sights. But now with a curly-haired angel sweetly cooing the words “cookie, cookie, cookie” at me, I had to start baking again.  When I’d been married (many years earlier) my then-husband was a spectacular chef and baker.

Nationally recognized mental health expert, Auman, has collected her observations and tips over the years and collated them into a handy dandy guide for those of us look longingly at the self-help aisle in the bookstores and online.

What this is not?  A deep foray into your psyche.  What...

Little secret about blogging

One of the little known areas about blogging is the PR machine that tries to reach the bloggers.  I thought it might be amusing to open the curtain a bit.  When I started blogging in 2004, it was still a relatively new medium.  I actively wrote for about 5 years and developed a large readership.  Before the meltdown of 2008,  baby boomers were still trying to find and keep jobs and reinvent themselves as they heading into their 50’s and 60’s.  Very few of us talked about boomers…it wasn’t “the demographic” that advertisers were looking for....
