The American Diabetes AssociationAmerican Diabetes Awareness MonthAmerican Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.

There are 20.8 million people in the United States, or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 6.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease.

Google Doodle …. for Halloween 2014!!

Halloween 2002

~~October 31, 2014~~

When users land on the search engine homepage, they will spot one of six holiday-themed animations.

One shows the word Google come to life by the light of a full moon, causing the letter ‘o’ to transform into a werewolf and frighten the other characters.

Another depicts a witch looming over a cauldron as she throws ingredients into a cauldron – concocting bats, ghosts and a giant hand.

Clicking the refresh page again, users may spot two jolly Jack O’Lantern pumpkins bobbing in an autumnal scene, or a chaotic graveyard scene where limb-gnawing zombies have taken over the homepage.

Tomato soup

Originally posted on In Vegetables We Trust:

Okay, so tomorrow is the start of world vegan month and the vegan challenge so I thought Id share a really simple vegan recipe that I missed when I first went vegan. Just tomato soup. nothing fancy. But thats something i used to miss, crazy, i know….. I hadn’t really thought about tomato soup for a long long time, until the other day. I was doing something I don’t usually do and watching the telly and a soup advert came on and whilst thinking “damn I love that bowl” and “dat kitchen” like most young men think, I found myself feeling nostalgic for a bowl of cheap tomato soup. Cravings don’t usually get to me these days but I thought, I don’t see why I cant just make some soup?? and so I did. And here it is. THE END.

Day of the Dead!

Originally posted on Stone Soup with karensamenow:


A few years ago I decided to have a fall party.  Not wanting to be like everyone else, I decided to make the theme “Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead!”   But being a white girl, and having many friends who didn’t understand this theme, only my “Artsie Fartsie” friends showed up.  They really get me!


I did this for a few years, and still, only my “Artsie Fartsie” friends showed up, with few exceptions.


So today I’m going to post some of the skulls I created for these parties.


They were fun to do, and though time-consuming, it felt really good to complete some dozen or more skulls.


I think we had four large, and ten or twelve small skulls……..


All decorated differently.


I hoped you had fun seeing a different kind of artwork, and  that it will give you some inspiration to create something outside the…

To Trust is to Heal

Originally posted on Beating Trauma:

As I continue my journey in conscious parenting, I have noticed a trend. I probably noticed it before, but didn’t have the time or energy to think about it much. But now that my kids are older and more individual and more vocal and well, more everything, it is getting more obvious. And frankly, there doesn’t seem to be very much support in our house.

This isn’t surprising to me. Throughout my life, I have felt invalidated and unsupported. It started in my childhood when I tried to get help and it wasn’t there. When I would speak up, I was told to stop making things up, stop lying, stop trying to get attention. I was told that I was not worthy, beautiful or intelligent. I was told that nobody loved me.
