A couple of weeks ago, I posted on here about me pulling a 7600lb (dry) trailer with our Ford Expedition. Since then, I’ve seriously been researching trucks to upgrade to, and I’m very torn. I’ve decided diesel is the route I’m going because we’re planning on taking trips and not staying local all the time. Coming from Indiana, majority of those trips will require mountain hauling. I’m stuck between the Dodge 2500 Mega Cab and a Ford F-250. Does it really come down to whether […]

In particular, specificity makes goals easier to plan for and track.

I assumed the coarse tubes were either natural sponges from the sea, or perhaps manufactured in a factory somehow. But it turns out they are actually a plant from the gourd family, and you can grow them right in your backyard. Their scientific name is Luffa aegyptiaca , and their outside resembles a cucumber. On the inside, […]

Grasping its importance at an early age means understanding and appreciating that people are different, and that that’s what makes the world more interesting. In particular, teaching kids early on about different foods, eating habits, and mealtime traditions can help them understand, appreciate, and embrace people from different backgrounds later in life.

We speak and little ears listen, acquiring meaning, coming to comprehend syntax, sensing nuance. Teaching your child a new language early on is a life-long gift that may take them to unexpected and wonderful places. For instance, thanks to her parents’ diligent efforts, Geneva Long has always been fluent in Citroën 2CV. And not just 2CV, but all dialects of the Citroën family of romance […]
