We've got plans to go to the beach this summer.... the Kindle would be perfect for me to read while lounging on the sand, while hubby can snap photos of the kids with the Samsung SH100. :) bonggamom@yahoo.com

Good point, the Italians call it Calcio, but that is their affectionate nickname for it -- "gioco del calcio" is like saying "the beautiful game". If you ask any Italian what futbol is, which sport do you think they would pick?

News flash....... SA! USA! USA!!!!! It's 9AM Pacific Time and the USA just played the game of their life! After some heartbreakingly near chances, Landon Donovan scored in extra time to beat Algeria -- and now the USA has actually won their group and advanced to the next round! Way to go guys, let's hope the rest of the country notices your huge win!

Last week my sister and I went on a whirlwind trip to LA, where we attended the final two shows of American Idol Season 9. We had nosebleed seats so high up that even if I had gone topless the... Continue reading

My husband does NOT help with the laundry one iota, not because he hates it but because he does all the ironing. Did I mention I hate ironing even more than I hate doing laundry? If I had to do laundry AND ironing I might as well stick my head in the oven and be done with it all. But that's the subject of another post.... :)

I heard LiceMeister comb was good too, should I get one for future battles? Those plastic thingies that come with the Rit shampoo are useless. I had to trap the little buggers between my fingernails and pull them all the way down to the ends of my daughter's hair. I'm trying to convince my daughter that a pixie cut would look cute on her. That pheromone treatment sounds awesome.... scientists, take note.

I agree with you Jane! Different people have different priorities, and the reality is that many people can't afford to buy the eco-friendliest products that are sold in places like Whole Foods. So rather than chew them up over that extra 1% of artificial additives, I applaud companies like Clorox for bringing eco-friendlier products to Walmart and Target and making them more accessible to the general public. That was a good lunch though :)

Wow, Rick, that is amazing. Congratulations to your family! Those are precious photos indeed. I'm so tickled pink that your grandmother still surfs the internet! Coincidentally, my grandmother also turns 90 in December :) She doesn't know how to use the internet (heck, she hasn't quite got the hang of ATMs yet) but she stays young by playing mah-jongg every other day, and goes on shopping junkets to Hong Kong with her daughters!

A good movie and great treats is all I need to have some fun inside with the girlfriends! (though usually the girlfriend is my daughter!)

That Blu-Ray player is definitely something my husband would want for Father's Day! Well, he actually wants a new motorcycle but the Blu-Ray is more in my price range.

After watching Disney's Earth, my kids have a renewed interest in going green to help prevent the ice caps from melting and destroying polar bears' habitats. Now we are trying to take shorter showers -- when the kids are taking a bit too long in the shower, I gently remind them about saving the earth, and they hurry up right away!

My kids will never forgive me if I miss a party sponsored by Sprout -- they love Fireman Sam. Maybe you could get him to attend so I can pose with him, for my kids. And maybe also another kind of fireman (you know the over-18 kind) that I can pose with, for me. Thanks!

I don't really like Kate, I think she's way too bossy and controlling and I have no idea why she allows herself to be portrayed that way on tv.... but if I were being offered tummy tucks, a new house, free trips to Disneyland, and a caboodle of money, in exchange for a chance to appear on tv, dress my kids and have them pose in cute clothes for magazines, etc... would I say no? Probably not. I doubt if many of the Kate Haters would say no, either.

We love the San Francisco exploratorium because there are so many fascinating exhibits that kids and grownups enjoy! Oh please pick me, it's my birthday on May 22! :) bonggamom@yahoo.com

Alix, I totally agree with you. The Pea has 20 kids in her class, and each will bring in a treat to school on their birthday. Then there are the BackToSchool/Halloween/Valentine/Xmas/Easter/St.Patricks/bakesale/etc... school parties, and all of a sudden you're looking at a treat every 2 weeks at school. Then add birthday parties, playdates, etc... it's all too much! I'm ashamed it took my daughter's ballooning waistline to force me to get tougher on treats at home.

I agree. Not everyone wins in real life and "protecting" our kids from that fact only does them a disservice.

David, I think promoting reasonable portions is a great idea -- and one that I'm really bad at implementing. Whereas my husband can eat just one square of chocolate a day, I can't stop till the whole bar is gone. Same with healthy foods -- 6 strawberries instead of 3, 2 bowls of cereal instead of 1, that kind of thing. Unfortunately my daughter follows my example, not his, so it's something we both need to work on!

Jill, thank you for sharing your story and -- as Maria Shriver said -- for putting a human face on this disease. You and your family are so courageous, and my heart goes out to your father!
