1001 ways to clean with vinigar


from: http://www.vinegartips.com/scripts/pageViewSec.asp?id=7

Is the Taboo of Co-Sleeping a Fallacy?

With my first daughter I was bound and determined to do everything by the book and set limits with her to provide a strong foundation for consistency and discipline for both myself and for her.  Even the first night in the hospital I kept putting her back into the bassinet and climbing back into the horribly uncomfortable bed just to get up a few minutes later to calm her screaming once she realized I set her down.  Swaddling didn’t make a difference and I was exhausted and overwhelmed.  Hours after this routine a nurse finally came in and told me to give in because she obviously wanted to be comforted by her mama.  She helped me get comfortable to breastfeed on my side and left us to sleep for the night.  I felt so guilty but reassured myself that the nurse told me it was okay and once we get home and get into a comfortable routine she would start sleeping in her own bed.  Boy was I optimistic!  Little Ava was in our bed for at least 3 months before I was able to get her into her crib and then once she started teething at 5 months she was back in our bed again until she was 9 months old. 

This time around, I again was determined to sleep alone in my bed without the baby – ha! Still not happening.  I bought the Arms Reach Co-sleeper thinking that I could just set her back into her own surface and I could be free to move around in my sleep as I please.  Wrong!  I don’t think my girls have similar personalities at this point but they sure do like sleeping with their mama.  It’s the only way my little Elliana will sleep at night and stay asleep for more than 20 minutes.  She can be so upset and then calm down in minutes once she finds the comfort of my boob.  She doesn’t even have to be eating but she has her little hands snuggled around one of my gigantic football sized (yes, they are huge right now) boobs.  She looks so precious and I wish I had the gumption to take a photo even though I don’t think I would show anyone. 

Now is this really taboo?  It seems most of my mama friends will tell me they co-sleep whether they planned it or not and many of them truly enjoy the bonding time.  I have to say it is so much more convenient while breastfeeding and it really does provide a bonding experience.  I realize it is scary to think that you could roll over on your child because you are so sleep deprived but in my experience, I don’t think it’s possible to be unaware of where your baby is while you co-sleep.  It’s like an innate biological response to wake up the moment you feel or hear anything but quiet or stillness. Of course people will tell you horror stories about someone they know or something they heard but I think if you fall asleep intentionally with your little munchkin and you are not under the influence of substances then there isn’t any danger.  Obviously, take precaution to make sure the sheets are fitted properly, there are no blankets that could smother the baby and you are comfortable with the decision to co-sleep – otherwise don’t do it!

Side-note: I did have the co-sleeper attached to my bed and my daughters both woke up because they were still too far away from me in the night.  I had the crib up against our bed with Ava and this time the co-sleeper with Elliana.  One foot away from me was too far for both of them.  This time we bought a king size bed and make the room for our little one to have extra space around her.

Prefense Review

I recently had the opportunity to try a new alcohol free hand sanitizer called Prefense. 

Disclosure: I did receive a free 1.5 oz size hand sanitizer to try. I was not compensated in any other way.  This is my opinion of the product.

What the company wants you to know: Prefense is a Silica Based Hand Sanitizer that smooths, softens, and protects.  It is effective for up to 24 hours and active through 10 hand washings!  This product is safe for adults and children.  This products has a patented formula that adheres to skin forming a proactive antibacterial barrier, wet or dry.  It contains moisturizing silica complex with soothing organic botanicals to prevent drying, redness and chapping.  It has been tested against strains of Staphylococcus aureus including drug resistant MRSA strains.  Has an easy, rapid, foam application.  It is colorless and invisible on application; will not stain skin or clothing.

Other sanitizers more often than not are alcohol based, only lasts for seconds, can be toxic and flammable (not safe for kids), washes off easily, and dries out the skin. 

My  Opinion!:  It took me awhile to actually use the product because I kept forgetting to use it.  I also have a lot of experience using hand sanitizer in the hospital which does in fact dry out my hands so I think psychologically I blocked my intentions of wanting to use the product without realizing it.  So, I was traveling for business this past week and was in and out of the car, eating on the road and of course pumping gas regularly.  I hate the thought of eating right after pumping gas so I gave the hand sanitizer a whirl.  It is fantastic! The foam was light and airy, it was not sticky, it absorbed quickly into the skin.  My hands felt clean.  There was minimal scent which was great.  The light scent that it did have dissappeared quickly.  I love it and I love the fact that it lasts for 24 hours because there are times when I am on the road for up to 5 hours and rarely get out to wash my hands.  Its great to know that I can use the product and not contaminate my stearing wheel, seat belt, beverage, or any other item I may touch in the car.  Im definitely keeping this in my purse from now on. I have no reservations about using this product. 

You can check out their website at www.prefense.com

If you sign up to receive emails you will be notified of free samples when available.  Currently they are offering a drawing for free hand sanitizer wipes.

Doomsday Insight

WARNING: Very controversial religious discussion following. I am not posting this to irritate people but mearly sharing an article that I agree with (well, most of it). When I heard about this doomsday phenomenom this morning, I laughed. I think it’s hilarious that people are worked up over the possibility that everyone in the world will die tomorrow. Okay, hilarious is not exactly the word Im trying to express, maybe sad and pathetic is more appropriate. I figure, if it did happen, which I hightly doubt, then why worry? Everyone will enter the same fate and no one will be left to grieve. If it doesnt happen (most likely scenario) then the following article/opinion holds a lot of validity. I appreciate the fact that the author points out that the people who truly believe and fall for this nonsense should not be held responsible for their following but recognized as people who were fooled into a belief that is sought out to better themselves…please read on, Im sure Ive peaked your curiousity.

My Take: Doomsdayers show what’s wrong with all religion

Editor’s Note: David Silverman, an atheist since age 6, is president of American Atheists.

By David Silverman, Special to CNN

Let nobody doubt that religion hurts people. Good, intelligent, caring people suffer every day and everywhere at the hands of religion, the happy lie.

Religion is used by dishonest people who claim to know the way to the one thing humans want most: immortality. To combat fear of death, religious people ignore their intellect, believe the lie, and follow the preacher, usually blindly and sometimes to the point of insanity.

We are witnessing one very good example of this right now, as a group led by Christian ministry leader Harold Camping prepares for the end of the world this Saturday, May 21.

Of course, the weekend will pass without incident and thousands of Camping’s followers, having spent or donated huge amounts of money on his behalf, will be gravely disappointed. Victims will be broken. Families will be damaged. Lives will be ruined. All because someone made a good pitch, and followers believed.

Opinion: May 21 Doomsday movement harms Christianity

I am not sure if Camping is a liar, but I think so. He realized that religion is a great way to make tax-free money off the backs of well-meaning people, through donations to his ministry, all without fearing eternal damnation. You see, I suspect that he, like many others of his ilk, doesn’t believe in God at all.

It may seem odd that I would accuse this man of being an atheist like me, but rest assured that he is nothing like me.

Like most atheists, I’m a pretty nice person and would never scam someone out of his or her life savings or convince someone to quit a job just to line my pockets. The truth is that religion and ethics are completely independent of one another.

Follow CNN’s Belief Blog on Twitter

Consider how Newt Gingrich could campaign against President Bill Clinton’s adultery as the darling of the Religious Right while actually being an adulterer himself. Consider how evangelical superstar Ted Haggard could preach against homosexuality, in God’s name, while hiding a gay lover. And consider Camping, who can get donors to cough up what appears to be a lot of money in God’s name while ruining his followers’ real lives on Earth.

These are not people who fear God or hell. In my opinion, they know very well that gods are myths. They are just bad people. Atheists have bad people, too, the worst of whom feign religion for their own personal gain.

Next week, Camping’s victims will ask our forgiveness for being so foolish, and we will forgive them, because we’ve all done stupid things. They will ask for money and we will help them, because most people are charitable.

And then Camping victims will ask us to forget all about this whole ugly scam. That is something we must never do.

We must remember that Camping, atheist or not, is no different from any other preacher. Religion thrives on fear–the constant threat of any-time-now Judgment Day coupled with eternal punishment in hell for those who don’t believe strongly enough.

Since rational minds question irrational things, believers constantly have doubts, and therefore fear that they don’t have enough faith to pass muster during the eventual Rapture, when the righteous will be saved and the unrighteous will be damned. Fear of hell makes believers desperate to ease those doubts so they can be sure to get into heaven. It’s a recipe for fear-based obedience, which is exactly what religion craves.

It’s the method used by Camping, and by the rest of Christianity, too.

If we forget about Camping, this apocalyptic madness will happen again. Next year is 2012 and, just as was supposed to happen in 2011, 2004, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1997, 1994 and other years that the world is supposed to end, according to one religion or another.

What will we do in 2012? Will we sit still while preachers take advantage of the gullible again? Will we refrain from confronting the fools and continue to revere religion? Or will we, as a society, demand that people use their intellect and pay attention to their preachers, priests, rabbis or mullahs and see them as the scammers they really are?

This weekend, preachers from coast to coast will talk about why they are right and Camping is wrong, and I ask you all to listen closely. They will try to justify why one interpretation of the Bible (theirs) is right while the others are wrong. In the end, they are all interpreting the “perfect word of God” in their own imperfect way so that God agrees with their own agenda. It’s obvious if you look for it; no preacher ever says “God disagrees with me.”

Yes, this weekend we will giggle at the fools who follow the preachers that earn their living spreading happy lies. Religion will have been proven wrong yet again.

But we all must remember that people have been hurt this weekend. We hope the victims of this year’s end-of-the-world will lift themselves back up, dust themselves off, and come out of this as better, less gullible people. Hopefully, they will use their experience to help others avoid future scams by shouting loudly at tomorrow’s victims, without fear of being irreverent about something which deserves no reverence at all.

The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of David Silverman.

frustrations with spam

To all my readers: I want to let you know that I have had a huge increase in spam mail recently (403 letters today alone) and I want to appologize if you have commented and your post was not publicized.  I became overwhelmed and frustrated with the amount and decided to empty the spam file without continuing to decide which is spam and which is real appreciation for such stories.  Please know that I am working to fix this problem and may eventually switch blog sites to avoid this problem.  If I decide to do so, I will post a link to this site directing you to the new site.  Stay tuned, hang in there with me.
