Going to try something new here. Since I read a lot of interesting stuff during the week, I’m going to try sharing them on Sundays.
Some Thoughts on the Small House Movement: Is It Something Worth Considering? – What defines a small house is pretty much a matter of perspective, but anything that encourages people to think past the McMansion trend can’t be all that bad. I grew up in a house that was 1800 square feet, yet in my mother’s neighborhood one family moved in and knocked down their house to build a new one because “everyone knows” you can’t raise 3 kids in less than 3000 square feet. My mother raised 4 of us, and it was quite comfortable.
There are studies. And then there are studies. – BPA isn’t the only area where the FDA is ignoring their responsibilities toward consumers in favor of industry. This time it’s perchlorate in drinking water.

Here Comes The Flu â€“ 10 Ways To Beat It The Natural Way! – Some great tips for coping with the flu. Good to consider at this time of year. I haven’t tried them, but I don’t have the flu right now either.

Sex, Lies, and Antibiotics: Tyson Caught Lying About Antibiotic-Free Chicken – So… injecting eggs and treating their feed is still “antibiotic-free”. Amazing.
No, Changing A Light Bulb Wonâ€™t Fix Everything. – True, but it’s not a bad start.
