This is a post from Izzy Mom about giving reusable shopping bags as gifts…I think that sounds like a great idea. And if you are going to do it on a large scale (and buy more than 100), you can even have them personalized just like the supermarkets do (for as little as $0.99 each).
You know the holidays are coming up, right? And you KNOW what that means, right? Yep, shopping. Lots and lots of shopping. And lots of bags. Paper and plastic.
The paper bags from everyone in America buying groceries for Thanksgiving alone will probably set us back a few frillion trees and a lot of oxygen, ya know?
And then Christmas and Hannukah…more bags. Especially plastic ones from malls, department stores etc.
So I have this idea!
I’m suggesting that instead of, or perhaps in addition to a regular gift, that you give the gift of re-usable bags to your friends, family, kids’ teachers, the mailman, the lawn guy — anyone! Everyone!

Hi Everyone. This weekend I decided to put together a new blog…The Political Voices of Women. It will be all women blogging about politics, all the time. I’ll be using the recently compiled list of over 200 women political bloggers, to find posts to feature on this new site.

My mother sent me an email with a link to this site (Select A Candidate Survey), I think this is GREAT! In this day and age when we are all so busy, and debates tend to be quite boring…Now you can find out in about a minute, what candidate agrees with you most on the issues. I love this idea, and I recommend everyone check it out.
Instead of making your decision on a candidate based on how much money they have to make annoying commercials, or how much attention they are getting in the media…You can just ignore all the political “Bull Sh#t”, and find out who actually would be the best candidate for you, based on the issues that matter most to you.
Go HERE and give it a try. Can’t hurt?
What is a political blogger? Can a women be a political blogger?

SIX TIPS TO HELP YOU GET STARTED ON A HEALTHY DIET — by Catherine Morgan
Do you want to lose weight, feel healthier, or just start eating better? Jumping off the junk food band-wagon isn’t easy. Making the decision to give it a try is a great first start. But, quiting cold-turkey is generally a bad idea. Sometimes making small changes, and working up to more, is a better way to do it.
Make one change in your diet today, and keep it up for a week. Then in a week, make another change. Keep adding to your healthy eating changes week after week, until eating healthy is just what you do.
Here are a few places you can start.

How To Find Kindness And Leave Judgment Behind — by Catherine Morgan
Jewel has a song, and in it she sings….”In the end, only kindness matters”. Those are very profound words. I would even say, that these are words to live your life by. Because, it is so true. In the grand scheme of things, we are here on earth only a very short time. Many of us spend much of this time being angry at people, making judgments on others, and generally just not being as kind as we could be.
