Would you believe me if I said that our garden is rototilled, the weed-block sheets are on, AND the spring seeds are planted all before May 1st?? To say I’m proud, is an understatement, because we NEVER get our garden in this early. I guess I have to give some credit to my 17-year old daughter, Sarah, who decided she wanted fresh spring veggies this year, for her cooking endeavors. No complaints here!

One of the things I most love about having our own vegetable garden, is that it’s usually pretty inexpensive. — I definitely don’t need any don allred insurance or anything, because besides the cost of the seeds and renting the rototiller to break the soil, our garden is pretty much very low-cost and we all love reaping the fruits of our harvest!

Recent UCLA research discovered that people who derive their happiness from helping others have strong antibody genes, while people who tend to lean more on self-gratification can suffer from low antiviral and anitbody gene expression.

The study, which also involved the University of North Carolina, is one of the first of its kind to find out  how positive psychology impacts human gene expression.

I don’t really pride myself as much as dancer. I can slow-dance with my husband just fine, but as far as knowing any dance steps such as the waltz or the tango, I’m pretty much clueless.

I definitely don’t need dance lessons from the dance doctor, but it would be kind of cool to learn some classic dance moves. You know, just in case hubby and I actually go dancing someday without the kids. ;)

On July 19, with the information that our planet would be in pictures taken that day due to a rare total eclipse of the sun, NASA asked people all over the world to take a few minutes out of their normal everyday life to spot the planet in the sky and wave their hands at Cassini, 900 million miles away.

In total, people from 40 countries and 30 U.S. states sent pictures of themselves waving at the spacecraft to various social media outlets.

To thank those who graciously participated, NASA created a mosaic of Earth using the photos submitted.

‘It’s just thrilling me to no end that people all over the world took a break from their normal activities to go outside and celebrate the interplanetary salute between robot and maker that these images represent,’ said Carolyn Porco, lead of the Cassini imaging team.

Sometimes I don’t know WHY I look to buy things like live wildlife cameras, for instance. Maybe it’s the anticipation of something fun coming in the mail, maybe it’s the pure joy of browsing the web for cool stuff. It drives my husband CRAZY, but I just love shopping online! I love it even more than shopping in real stores, because I don’t even have to leave the comfort of my own home!

Its owner, who has decidedto stay anonymous, discovered the car after buying the storage container in Long Island in the year 1989.

Having 3 kids who grew up wearing glasses, a mom can get accustomed to continuous glasses scratch repair, popped-out lenses, or snapped frames. Sometimes these traumatic events happen at a good time, such as when the kids are about to get new glasses anyway, but other times, it will happen almost IMMEDIATELY after they’ve gotten a new pair, making for a not-so-happy mom! Oh, the joys of kids with glasses. ;)

Boyan Slat, 19, came up with the idea of a series of floating booms and processing platforms designed to collect floating plastic rubbish from large bodies of water all around the world.

This ‘ocean cleanup’ idea is created to capture the floating plastic but allow life like fish and plankton to pass through unharmed, while saving the waste materials to be recycled.

I’m tentatively considering getting back into beading. A few years ago, I got very involved in making jewelry and I even considered selling it. But after I got hired for a number of online jobs, beading somehow got quietly pushed to the back burner of my mind.

I was recently cleaning out my sewing room and I came across all my old beading books and more of these beads, and I got inspired to start beading again. I have to say, that I did enjoy beading and I’m hoping I can find the time to get back into it!
