Head Lice Resources on the Review Blog

On Found Not Lost is a sponsored post for  Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice. Head on over to Found Not Lost for expert advice on how to prevent lice infestation and if you do get one, how to get rid of it. 

My husband and I are so paranoid about lice that we are usually the first to keep our kids out of school whenever we hear of an infestation. After all, have you seen my daughters’ hairs? They have a lot of it! It would be a nightmare if they ever get it. My nieces got infested a couple of years ago and my sister spent a small fortune delousing them and the whole house. That’s one thing I don’t want to go through, thank you very much. Click on the link below for some sensible tips on how to combat lice if you got them already or how to keep them from sticking to you or your kids.

New recipe on the food blog: Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes Soup with Mushrooms

Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes Soup with Mushrooms

This is another use-up-the-leftovers innovation otherwise known as everything-but-the-kitchen-sink soup in our house. A few weeks ago, I made meatloaf. I love meatloaf!

From the Garden,

Oh It’s Planting Time Again!

We have been, or rather I should say MY HUSBAND, has been working on getting our garden straight for the past few weeks. He cleaned up the beds, cleared some debris against the back fence and he created a couple of new beds since part of the old ones were taken up when he put up his little work tent.

I took  the photo above when he first started tearing up the garden. One of the things he did was pull up a row of canna lillies from the back to make room for a new vegetable bed. He’s moving the lillies to another corner of the yard.

Are You Worried About Your Online Reputation?

Whether you agree with it or not or even if it’s legal or not, more and more employers are demanding access to your facebook account. No, they don’t just want to be able to see your profile, they actually want your password!

It isn’t enough that you can already find out almost everything about anyone online nowadays just through a basic search online, for employers to demand passwords to your accounts, I think is going a little too far. Next thing you know, they will want to riffle through your home before they hire you. But, that is just my opinion. I would pass over any job that would require that of me.

This is one of my latest favorite read, recommended by my daughter. I loved it so much that I am now on my way to reading all of John Green’s other books.
