I feel passionately that bullying could be almost eradicated if it was a priority taught as soon as a toddler is capable of understanding fairness and compassion. It is as important as being potty trained as reciting the alphabet. The sad thing is the amount of mothers and fathers who are incapable of teaching these concepts as they've not internalized them themselves. I wonder if studies have been done as to success of an early childhood curriculum including these values?

Hey, I just put Climate Moms in iBooks (search for it in iTunes). I worked hard to clearly explain climate change and link it to things you can do to improve our environment. This is especially important for moms!

Check it out. It has lots of fun pictures, too!

Unhappy with the weather stripping on exterior doors, I stumbled on this idea as I prepared to throw out the long cardboard tube(about 30 ") from a used up roll of wrapping paper. I sliced it in hapf with a box cutter. Then fit it into the gap around two wooden exterior doors which are at least 30 years old. I don't like sticky insulation that messes up the door frame. These are removable and clean..Voila, no more gaps and seepage of cold air .
