I’m a big fan of raised bed gardening, successfully using raised beds to grow vegetables, soft fruits and cut flowers in my vegetable garden and at my allotment for many years now. So when asked if I’d like to review a copy of Jeanne Grunert’s book Plan and Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden, I was happy to take a look.
Plan and Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden is an easy to follow guide, packed full of practical information on how to plan and build a simple raised bed vegetable garden. The authors knowledge and passion for the subject really shines through as she guides us through the following sections:
- Why Build Raised Bed Gardens?
- Planning a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden
- Design and Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden
- Pathways for Raised Bed Gardens
- Importance of Great Soil
Important factors to consider for a successful and easy to manage vegetable garden are covered, such as how much light…

I found this article very interesting. Hope you do too.
Rule #1: Most people like pictures. Hence the “floral arrangements” in this post. (Smile)
My last post was the most retweeted ever! Lots of interest. So today I’m sharing some tips which have worked for me, thanks to Lauren, my social media expert:
- Be real. Life isn’t perfect and nor are you. Being real makes your blog interesting. My book is hilarious in parts and I wanted my blog to be similarly uplifting and funny. But my injuries affect every part of my life — including my blogging schedule. I finally revealed a few of those difficulties — and my blog network supported me.
- Tell, don’t sell. Many of the bloggers I follow make products for sale – their books or paintings; farm products; furniture or vintage items. Some have a shop built into their site. But they know that blogging isn’t primarily a marketplace: it’s about engaging…

Importance of Long Hair and beards
- Hair is the most potent, purest form of protein in the world. The very root of the hair has the oil of the protein. This oil is enough to support your brain through any activity.Hair is the pranic antenna. It is energy, pure protein.Hardly 0.5% of the protein that we take in with our daily diet, is spent on their upkeep. On the other hand, trimmed hair consumes much more protein because this has to be spent on the re-growth of the hair
- The brain needs vitamin D, energy, phosphorus, and metals. The number of units of vitamin D that these hairs provide immediately to the brain is unbelievable.Shaving causes vitamin ‘D’ deficiency and this vitamin, in its turn, is directly concerned with the calcium metabolism of the whole organism.
- The hair helps to synthesize vitamin D from sunlight. It also helps to supply…

ANTENNAS OF YOUR BODY
Hair is the most potent, purest form of protein in the world. The very root of the hair has the oil of the protein. This oil is enough to support your brain through any activity. One thing Nature knows is that in every part of your body you have to have hair, because they are the antennas for that area of the body. Each cell in the body goes through certain changes, and who is to provide that change in the antennas? Hair.
Hair is the pranic antenna. It is energy, pure protein. …

A very good post and I totally agree. Adequate sleep is important and is one of the requirements for the fountain of youth and high energy
People-watching is one of my favorite things to do. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. As I was taking the bus this morning, I couldn’t help but notice the under-rested student population.
Scores of people yawning, drowsy, passed out and drooling. They’re a complete mess. People do not sleep enough. There, I said it. Someone had to. I feel like it’s something that most people don’t do, but, in my opinion, is so important.
The solution seems so simple to me.
Just sleep more.
People use every excuse in the book. “I don’t have time. I have school! I just can’t sleep!” For me, the solution to all these problems is sleep.
I Don’t Have Time
When I tell people I have a job, a blog, a YouTube channel, and I’m at school full-time, they’re always baffled.
“Where do you find the time? I don’t have the same time you…

I have a love/hate relationship with New Year’s and, especially, New Year’s Eve. The expectations involved with getting dressed up, going out, spending too much, drinking even more–those days are behind me. This year I am planning on spending it alone, surrounded by my different journals, prepping for 2015.
I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Life, and the holidays, have been a blur this year. Plus, I find as I get older, I miss the people who aren’t here any more with a more pronounced ache. I am still one of the luckiest people I know, with a wonderful life. But I need to be mindful of thinking about more actively. I blogged about “Finding Joy” on Wicked Cozy Authors, and that is one of my resolutions. The others are the reasons for the various journals. (BTW, Diane and Wendy had great posts on New Years resolutions.)
