I have teenagers in the house now and they are learning to drive. Part of this experience for them is that they need to learn how to maintain their car and check for problems on a regular basis. I created a simple checklist to help teach them and keep record of our maintenance. Here is…

Transitioning to an Allergy-Free Diet
What is the best response when you find out that you are allergic to certain foods? Should you just slowly remove these items from your diet, cut them out altogether right away, or find replacement ingredients so that you can continue to use your current recipes and eat the same foods? I believe that the…
What? I’m Allergic to Eggs, Dairy, Gluten, Nuts, and Soy?
I was diagnosed with Hashimotos way back in 2002. At that time, my TSH was 55! I was 6 months postpartum and was just hoping that it was temporary thyroiditis. But that was not the case. I have been taking some sort of thyroid replacement hormone ever since. At the time, my doctor recommended eating…

Making the Decision About a Service Dog
Almost seven years ago, we had a daughter that was born with Down syndrome. There are so many questions at a time like that. We wanted to know if she would be able to walk and talk, how well would she be able to function in her world, and how much help would she need.…
If you are planting potatoes based on the Farmers Almanac, then your potato seeds need to be in the ground by the first full moon in February. For this year, the full moon is February 22, 2016.
Here is the link for the full moon calendar for 2016-2017.
Three days before, I cut the seed potatoes so that each piece I cut has a good “eye” on it. I lay the cut potatoes on some newspaper so that they can dry out a little before planting.
When I am ready to plant, I dig trenches in the garden about 4 inches deep and place the cut potatoes, eye facing up, down in the trench. I cover them with dirt, leaving some dirt piled on the sides of the trenches. As the plants begin to emerge, I start mounding up some of the dirt around the plant. You can also use hay around the plants as they grown. This gives added support to the plant.
