A random collection of articles, blog posts, books, and other things I think are worth sharing.

Washington Post: Enough (This)

Picklebums: Why You Should Hug Your Kids When They Are Being Horrible (I’ve done this….not near enough, but enough to know that it actually really does work.)

USA Today: Girls are Stars in Girl Scouts. They’d be Supporting Players in Boy Scouts (yet another “auxiliary” to a men’s group).

Monbiot.com: The Gift of Death (This is fabulous and….why many of you on my shopping list will be receiving homemade gifts or no-waste gifts — tickets, experiences, etc. — this year. Take a run through a subdivision on garbage day the week after Christmas and it will make you weep. If not, we can’t be friends.)
