For those of you interested in the cure for cancer, I just posted a book review on the Central Florida Green Guide: The Only Cure for Cancer. You can read the review for the whole scoop, but I will say I don't think the book got the job done for me. On the flip side, I enjoyed the many resources shared and learned a lot from reading. What do you think? Listen to his interview on Blog Talk Radio at the button above and let me know.

Christmas Pillows Make Nice Gifts

This year's unfortunate fall events have left me a bit behind. I'm resorting to old standby ideas for my holiday gift giving. While I sit here for several days supervising the repiping of my home, I am busy making Christmas gifts for family and friends. Some of them are on this list:


1--Handmade Christmas pillows stuffed with reused stuffing from old pillows.


2--Organic cotton towels--no more drying off with cotton that is embedded with pesticides and herbicides.


3--A basket of natural or homeopathic cold remedies for the cold and flu season


4--Home-baked, organic goodies: Check my list of recipes below.



5--Handmade Christmas ornaments or decorations from reused items. The mini Christmas trees at right are made from the chiseled pine cones that my resident squirrels abandon in my yard.


6--A harvested seedling tree, transplanted into a pot for loving care in a safe location. You can even add a bag of compost for occasional soil enhancement.


7--A homemade toy for a dog. Check out mine at the link.


8--A sustainable bamboo cutting board for cooking.


9--A spice rack full of organic seasonings.


10--A recipe box with all your favorite organic creations.


Finally..........give your gift in a reusable shopping bag. Try a Chicobag in the color of your choice for added impact. Add some ribbon or a bow and you're in business.
