Being Safe On The Road During Rain

I am sure, like me you too are concerned about keeping your family and yourself safe on the road. State Farm insurance considers this to be important as well, and have created programs to promote child passenger safety, teen driver safety, seat belt safety, and sober and engaged driving. During spring, when the snow is melting and it rains a lot, it creates different road conditions that drivers need to be aware of and learn how to deal with these conditions. Rain is a known to be a common cause for crashes, and it can create chaos on the road for drivers.

What hospice care means to patients and their families

Death can come anytime to anyone, however many people prefer not to think about death in their day-to-day lives. For most people, a good death means being physically comfortable, at peace in your own home, enjoying as many moments as possible with loved ones doing the things they love to do up until the very end.

Potato Dishes using Potatoes from The Little Potato Company

I loved using the colourful little potatoes from the Little Potato Company in a variety of dishes. Everyone in my family enjoyed the bite sized, delicious buttery taste. I like the convenience of using these pre-washed potatoes that can be used without peeling. I found it easy to prepare because all I had to do is boil it for 15 minutes, or add it into my Tagine, and meat dishes.

Vaccines can prevent infectious diseases

As we all know infectious diseases are scary because they are contagious, dangerous, and some can even be deadly. Measles, whooping cough, chickenpox and invasive pneumococcal disease can threaten the health of our children and us. Babies under two years old are at the highest risk because their immune systems are still developing. This is the reason that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that we vaccine our children to help protect them from these diseases. I believe as a parent that getting our children vaccinated, with all the recommended doses and on time, is one of the most important steps we can take to help protect them from serious illness that can be prevented.

A Visual Guide to Sushi-Making at Home

I really enjoyed learning from the Visual Guide to Sushi-Making at Home book that teaches how to make sashimi and sushi style dishes in our own kitchen using a non-traditional approach. There are over 50 recipes from sushi chef Hiro Sone with step-by-step photography and dozens of ingredients and equipment identifications. The books explains everything we need to know from choosing the right fish, the type of rice and how we can prep different types of seafood, and other sushi related ingredients such as dashi, wasabi and more. It also has a section on sushi etiquette.
