Avocado-Purple Yam-Apricot-Dill Salad!
Creativity came to me as I looked at the fresh apricots while making guacamole, mushing the avocados down with a fork. The purple yams had already been steaming, just by chance, because it was time to make them. None of these separate ingredients were intended to get mixed together initially. I knew my husband would […]

Pet Peeves and Suggestions About Physical Education in Our State:
1. PE classes alienate the students who the classes are supposed to teach. Anyone who is slightly overweight is immediately intimidated by PE classes. We lose them around first grade. 2. PE teachers focus on competition and team sports. They discourage students from listening to their body when they are in pain. They discourage students […]

No one reveals a particular benefit of nursing, so I will. Articles often mention the benefits of antibodies that the mother transfers to the child in the first six months of nursing. These antibodies are a special collection that the mother’s body learned to make from illnesses she had throughout her life. It is useful […]

Nature provided a perfect mechanism to keep mothers close enough to […]
