The animated e-cards at Hula Hoop Press are now easier to send. And they are FREE! We just reworked the site so you only have to click and drag the image to the body of your email.
articles like this one. I found it on the Parade website. It has some good tips, including putting down the tasting spoon when you are cooking. Instead try dipping a leaf of lettuce or a small carrot into your sauces to taste.

Interesting...a company has raised over $100,000 on Kickstarter for a product called Brydge, that will turn your iPad into a laptop. It will be $170 for the regular version and $210 for the Brydge with speakers. Might be worth $170 if you do not already own a laptop. Not thinking I really need it, but kind of want it...now why is that?

Picnics make me happy. I grew up on picnics. My grandparents lived across the street from the town's park, which had a petting zoo and a carousel. My grandmother on the spur of the moment would fry some chicken, make a coleslaw and we would all head over to the park for dinner...more...

I am really into cutting my family grocery bill. When our kids were still at home, way too much was in the refrigerator and way too much ended up being wasted (though I never noticed the problem with pizza and junk food). Now, I want to use every trick in the book for choosing, appreciating and using the things we eat. This article is a good start if you are trying to clean up your food act too! more...

We’ve lived in our current home for about seven years. And for every single day of those seven years, the older woman my family calls the “Energizer Bunny Lady” has raced past our house several times. She amazes me and I wonder what motivates her to run day-in-and-day-out. Another woman I know has walked two hours a day, every day (except the three days she was in labor with her three now-adult kids) for over 30 years…and this has taken place in ALASKA! Why can’t I just do it without giving myself a lecture about the pathetic mess of an old lady I will be if I don’t behave myself and exercise daily? Hmmm,,,,,,the word “lazy” does come to mind! more…Pam

Have you noticed that the French are always telling Americans how to eat (as they stick an eclair in their collective mouths)? Well, here is their latest contribution to “how we stay skinnier than you guys”… more…
