Spent the afternoon in the Dr’s office yesterday for the boys one year appointment. They’re growing and developing just as they should.
Toyota Executives are going to have to answer questions from Congress today about who knew what when. Isn’t that what Congress ALWAYS wants to know in these hearings? Anyway, it appears from internal documents released to the public, that Toyota knew it had a problem, tried it’s best to take the cheapest way out, and people may have been hurt as a result. That would be sad. I hope this doesn’t end up being a case of “How much is Enough?” Toyota has been a leader in the auto industry for my entire life. They’ve been making a lot of money. But when that profit becomes more important that the quality of your product….you’ve lost your way.
I’m interested to know who’s behind the robocalls claiming race is behind the move to ban texting and driving. Race? The question I started asking is…who stands to lose the most if the bill passes?
No snow today but I found this article in the Chicago Tribune and thought it was interesting. I find myself running the snowblower al the way down through he next door neighbor’s property line. Our neighbor lives alone and it out there shoveling the snow by herself. It takes me an extra thirty seconds to make the walk up and back on her sidewalk with the snowblower…it’s just a nice thing to do.
I don’t do it thinking I deserve some sort of a reward or even a thank you. We have a lot of Dog walkers in our neighborhood and I know they appreciate a clear walk. The interesting question this article brings up is how much is enough when you snowblow someone else’s walkway?
Food for Thought
So we are transitioning the boys into “real food” we’ve gone through the 1’s the 2’s and the 3’s in the baby food and it’s time to get them eating what we eat. So who’s got some good suggestions for starters? We’ve done bananas, oranges, some pumpkin bread, we even tried some mini raviolis (not a lt of success there). What else? Are there things you parents cooked that we could give the boys too? ways to cook stuff like a chicken breast to make sure they can chew and swallow easily? We’re looking for some variety. Any suggestions will be helpful!
Have a good one
