What is Communication Shutdown?

On the 1st of November 2010 I have taken the pledge to turn off Facebook and Twitter! A large number of people and children who suffer from Autism struggle with social communication and for one whole day I am going to experience what it is like not to be able to communicate through social networking channels! So for me it is NO TWITTER and NO FACEBOOK! If you know anyone with Autism take the pledge by donating to and for one day SHUTDOWN for people with Autism.  We are a family living and learning first hand a life of Autism, everyday is a journey with a new set of challenges and sadly there is no cure, so please donate to this global fundraising challenge, be a hero and shutdown for one day!

October is Pink!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as I love the colour pink I thought I would put together a list of my favourite pink things. What is your favourite pink item? Is it something you already have or is it on your wish list? Remember to buy a pink ribbon every dollar counts in helping to find a cure.

Grow, Grow, Grow!

The rain and burst of warm humid weather is perfect growing conditions and the veggie garden is just loving it! I planted some very small tomato seedlings 2 weeks ago and they have doubled in size, the rhubarb seems to be very happy where I have planted it, and the strawberries look like they will give us more fruit this year, as long as the strawberry thief keeps away from them. I particularly love all the flowers, the sage is bursting with bright purple blooms and the broad beans are covered in little white flowers dotted with black spots, it is a very pretty time of the year. What is happening in your garden? Are the seasons being kind to you? Please tell me your gardening stories. Until next time happy gardening.
