Approachably Reclusive: A day down the toilet, why boys don’t read fiction anymore, and the how-to of personhood: And that, I think, is at the heart of the “why don’t boys read and what can we do about it” perennial uproar. (No, not hanging out in bars and looking hot, which I’m sure has fans of both genders.) I mean that crucial difference between valuing experience and relationship to other people, versus achievement and relationship to the self.
Fat Head � Yes, We’re Aware of Crohn’s and Colitis … So What?: Considering that kids are eating wheat products that contain both more gluten overall and mutant gluten with a protein sequence that never existed until around 40 years ago, I think it’s entirely possible that Crohn’s and colitis are on the rise because kids (and adults) are consuming glutens their bodies can’t handle. These are, after all, auto-immune diseases. It’s not unreasonable to suspect that when these strange glutens seep in our systems, our bodies attack them and end up attacking our own tissues at the same time.

What The Vitamin Industry Does Not Want You To Know � The Mommypotamus: Do you pick up your child’s dinner plate – sigh over the untouched veggies – and then think “oh well, at least he/she takes vitamins!”? Well then, I have good news and bad news. First – and you are going to LOVE me for this – it’s okay if your child doesn’t eat tons of veggies.
I haven’t talked about food on this blog much, but I have been thinking about it quite a lot. My diet has slowly shifted over time, moving away from wheat based and/or processed foods and settling firmly into the whole foods camp. It’s part low to mod carb diet, part paleo with dairy, and lots of fun.
I’ve been reading a few articles on food, so I’ll start posting them here, and maybe we can get some discussion going. I liked this article I found, as it supports some of the thoughts I have had about food and nutrition. Multivitamins are a processed food, after all, and I’ve always wondered if they are as useful as people think they are. While the article talks primarily about children, a lot of the discussion is applicable to adults too.
Something for amusement. This looks like a lovely idea. I cleaned and decluttered all yesterday; so I even have space to do something like this! How awesome would that be??
Add this to my ‘Bad Ideas I Want to Try’ file! A friend sent me this as a suggestion for stuff to do with some canvasses I have lying around. These look fantastic, and I love some of the ideas on this post! Hmmmm…. the last thing I need is yet another craft project…
A friend’s little boy is preparing for his birthday soon, and has asked for a crown and wand for his present! His Mum has found this webpage, which has just GORGEOUS crowns on it. Lucky boy, my birthday is too far away to ask for one too!
I’ve always wanted chickens. For various reasons they haven’t come just yet – but I figure this is a good thing. When I can keep a garden watered for a whole 12 conistent months, then maybe I will be qualified to keep chickens fed and watered for an equal length of time.
This is a fantastic beginning guide to have chickens. There’s a lot of on the job skill with chickens, but for the most part every one who blogs about it talks about how easy it is. Less work than cats or dogs, chickens are fun, productive and useful in the garden.
Personally, I just like watching them interact with each other and play in the garden. The eggs would be an awsome bonus!
