Our Facebook Favs of the Week:
- Ronni Blumenthal When I went to Guatemala in 2001, I brought supplies for a clinic. The head of the clinic asked for "any soap other than antibacterial - it just makes things worse." His reasons, when we met, were those articulated in this article. Have not bought it since and am shocked not more people are aware of what it is doing to us.
- Kmelizabeth Lehowit-Piemontese What you did was healthy, tasteful and saved lots of money as you said not eating out at restaurants and you know more about what your putting into your bodies. This is a nice and timely piece, considering it's summer and many people travel often.
- Sarah Blankenship So lets do something about it. Plant flowers specifically for them. I plan to do this next year. I have learned what plants they love and next year I will be setting out a large area for them and bees as well. We can hate what is happening but we can change things by all banning together. Do something to make a change!!!!! If you think it will not matter think again. Every little thing helps. Educate your children and teach them as well. our generations are falling apart.
See you in Tweet Land or on the "Wall!"
