  4. Nutrition and Good Eating
    For those in the US - outside of the obvious, does your family have a special traditional food for Thanksgiving?
  5. Parenting

    My kids both have winter birthdays, but my nephew has a birthday in July and I'm going to be helping plan his party. He will be 8. What kinds of things can you plan for a summer party? Do you trust the weather and plan for outdoors?
