My Karelian great grandmom used to make many variations of these type of drinks. To one version she added turnips!
Well, saying that circ is wrong would cause outrage, lawsuits and stuff. Not to mention it would be totally politically incorrect. I myself have gotten called all kinds of names because I am against all types of circumcisions. Besides it's easy money - why would doctors want to give it up?

And these stats are only about USA. The fact is that worldwide most circumcisions are done without anykind of pain relief - even when done to older boys/teenagers.
Here in Scandinavia people just buy winter overalls. They keep child warm no matter if it is wet, slushy winter or dry, cold winter. Then you don't have to stuff 10 different layers of clothers under them. And they are very durable, I don't know if they are sold anywhere in USA but I highly recommendate!

Of course you can use UPS but that is SO expencive. We find most stuff through eBay, there are always companies/people shipping globally - just again, check mailing costs, some people ask way too much. We also sometimes order things and put mail address to MIL who lives in CA and she sends them to us. Just be careful - EU custome fees can be quite expencive.

Note, there is no highschool in Finland. Not The way USA has it. Instead we have upper secondary school that is very similar to the education what college students in USA get in their first years in college. Also, we have system that is "coctail" of trade school and this upper secondary school. Then there is plain trade school but even through that school there is a way to university if you so choose to. University education is not valued as a "must" like so often in...
Duh - another example how use of common sense would have saved lots of money and lives. Someone should inform Bill Gates - hasn't he given tons of money for circ?

Not only it keeps teeth safe but it also keeps ear infections at bay. After every meal,...
