What the Varchar?
I always joke with my friends that I love the snow. Yes, I love it so long as I am inside with a blanket and a hot steamy beverage and I can watch it out the window. I sometimes think I am part bear, because my preference would be to stay…Continue

Some people can easily spend hours upon hours at their workstation every day. There tends to be a misconception floating around that working at a desk doesn’t involve any serious health issues. This is just plain wrong. The truth is that you can do serious damage to joints and muscles if your work station is not ergonomically correct. It is important that you take care of this problem now to avoid it becoming an even bigger problem later on down the road.

Baby showers are my favorite types of parties. Everybody’s happy and anticipation fills the air. Picking out baby gifts for friends and family baby showers is fun too. I get to relive my own baby’s infancy.
While going through the pages of online organic things for babies, it almost always starts me wanting another of my own. I loved those days, and I miss them often. I adore my growing daughters, but I sure miss that smell of a newborn baby, the fresh smell right after a bath, the…

It was a surprise to me when suddenly one day a few weeks ago my 12-year-old Samantha started saying that she wanted to learn to play the piano. I was not quite sure where this was coming from since Sam had never really shown much interest in music. I remember in the fifth grade her disdain for the clarinet, which she played in the band despite the fact that she never practiced.
I realized that Sam could have ulterior motives since her older sister, Rose, is about to embark…Continue
