Have a baby now and trying to find more enviro friendly products.

A baby takes allot of work, as mothers all know. They require allot of special care, and hopefully allot of good and safe products with their growing cycle in tune.

We searched on the internet, back and forth, for products that do not emit many VOCs, or harmful chemicals. Allot of baby seats were sprayed with fire retardant chemicals, which can harm your child over time. We tried to avoid this, by buying products that were rated safe by baby eco websites and such.

The only thing, when you live in a little area like we do, the choices are far and few between. Some cribs do smell, as it may take 6 months to get the smell out from the wood.  While the crib may have an eco friendly label, it may not be made out of solid wood, and the paint may still contain harmful VOCs.

We are looking into a few cribs made with solid wood, but it may take 2 months to come in when ordered. There is nothing quite local, as this can create some hassles as well. Some press woods may contain glues that emit harmful chemicals over time.

Buying second hand cribs is not a bad idea. Mostly all of the VOCs and glues, would have emitted their harmful chemicals by then.

Well, time to go crib searching... Be back later..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
