The end of Summer is a great time to do a little "Spring-Cleaning"
Go through your closets, drawers, garage and any place that you have things that
are old to you, but will be new to someone else. You can donate those items to
The Salvation Army and help a lot of people along the way. They will even come and pick
your items up for you, depending on where you live. Plus, you can take a tax deduction at tax time.
So what are you waiting for?

My grand kids and I love to read and one of our favorite characters is Hugo The Happy Starfish with all his great and fun adventures. Hugo is a little starfish that lives on the bottom of the ocean with his marine life friends. Hugo finds himself in all kinds of wonderful journeys, in his underwater world as he searches to find the real world. On his search for the real world he ends up on 14 different Islands, each of these Islands have a great story that is told in 14 separate books. In this book Hugo The Happy Starfish: The Power of the Word, Hugo is sent to the Island of Empathy, it is there Hugo learns how powerful words can be. With the help of Charisma the Queen of the Island of Empathy he learns that when you say nice and kind words it makes you and others feel good and happy. As he says nice and kind words arrows with hearts on the tips hit him but they do not hurt. He likes the way nice words makes him feel. He is reminded that just like kind and nice words can make you feel good, bad and mean words can hurt. Hugo could not understand how words can hurt- after all they are just words right? The Queen has him say bad words and that is when he sees the arrows coming towards him, but they are not arrows with hearts on them. Even though he tries to run away the arrows get him and make him feel bad. That is when Hugo learns that words really can hurt and if you do not have anything nice to say then you should not say anything at all. Hugo books are easy, fun and educational- this book is no exception and my grand kids love it just as much as all the Hugo books. It keeps their attention because they love the characters so much. I think that when a children's book get the kids asking question and talking about the story then it has done it's job. The kids shared about times that their feelings have been hurt by mean words, and how when they have said mean words it must have hurts other peoples feelings. After talking about all that they decided they did not want people to feel bad, since they know how that feels and they do not like it, so they decided that they will not say mean words anymore. It is so cute to watch and listen to my grand kids come up with solutions to things that we read about. They seem so grown up now- they can even read the books to me now. Time just goes by way to fast. I recommend this and all the Hugo The Happy Starfish books to anyone who have children. They are a fun way for children to learn life lessons, the illustrations are bright, big and colorful and will keep the attention of almost any age children.

~~CLEANING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES~~
We eat alot of fruit and vegetables at our house.
It really freaks me out if my kids or grandkids grab an apple
or a grape and pop it in their mouth before I have a chance to wash them.
The proper way to wash you fruits and vegetables-
what is approved by the FDA is plain old fashion water.
First wash your hands throughly with soap and water.
Then take your fruit and put under warm running water for 20 seconds,
rubbing well with your hands.
Do not use any kind of detergents.
They do have a special vegetable spray wash that some people do use.
You do not have to use those types of things. I've always felt like I was trying
to wash off chemicals with other chemicals.
And again warm water alone is FDA approved.
I like to wash mine all at once when I get home from shopping,
I cannot trust my grandkids to wash them before eating them.
Once you are done be sure to wash you hands again with warm soapy water.
