Near miraculous results using OsteoEze Gold

Being pregnant at ages 38 and 42, I don’ think that I did my body many favours dishing out calcium to grow the skeletal structures of 2 small humans.  For a total of 3 years the mineral generosity was perpetuated through breastfeeding.  I don’t know if there’s a connection but I have early osteoporosis and had 3 separate joint issues. ...

Real Kids Sunglasses from OV Optics – Not too cool for school

I’ll be honest, I have never given much thought to protecting my children’s eyes from UV light.  We have bought sunglasses for them, because glare can be a bit uncomfortable on the beach or hiking, and they look cute.  Last Saturday at the SA Mom Blogs meet-up, a highlight was the presentation by Tanya (an optometrist) and Zule (a photographer) ...

Mellerware Wafflemax Maffle Maker

Our 7-year-old son Fjord LOVES waffles, the problem is that he is also allergic to egg, not a good combination.  A while ago my daughter Domi loaned us her waffle maker and I used it a few times.  I use Orgran ‘No Egg‘ (available at Dischem) instead of eggs and the whole family loves them.  We had great fun and ...
