CONTESTS AT FAMILYCORNER!

WIN! SPICE HUNTER TURKEY BRINE
ďBrining is a culinary technique that is the first
step to preparing a moist and flavorful turkey.
Brining locks in natural moisture while infusing
mild flavors and reduces cooking time. The
result? A juicy, tender turkey that is delicious
and not overly salty.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ROBBED?
It seems like we can't go 1/2 a day around here without
hearing of a robbery from either a store, a home invasion
or somebody being robbed. It's so scary. Have you ever
been robbed? How did you deal with it? Do you take
measures to try to protect yourself -- home & car alarms,
carry mace or pepper spray, take self defense classes...etc?

ARTICLE PICK OF THE WEEK
------------------------------

HELPING CHILDREN OF DIVORCE THROUGH
THE HOLIDAY SEASON
What day does Thanksgiving fall on anyway? What
about Christmas and New Years? What year is this
and who's got the kids for the holidays? You realize
you are going to have to go dig out those divorce
papers and see what year it is and if it's odd or even
and if you get to see your children or if you'll be
heading to Grandma's without your kids in tow....

CRAFT PICK OF THE WEEK
------------------------------

FAMILY HANDPRINT TURKEY
There are so many cute versions of the handprint turkey,
all of them worthy of being saved for posterity. This
handprint turkey uses not only the kids', but mom's
(and dad's if you like) handprints as well!

WHOíS LOOKING FORWARD TO FALL OR WINTER?
Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up,
takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens
you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the
yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.
Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light
inside you to shine for all the world to see. This was
passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is your
turn to pass it to a pumpkin. I liked this enough to send
it to all the pumpkins in my patch. Happy Fall!

am praying for the less! Post any tips you have for me! I will
post a update on my progress.

KEEPING FIT IN THE COLDER MONTHS
Okay I don't have a plan. I do have some ideas but not
a plan. Let's get our plans together so we can stay on track!
http://www.familycorner.com/forums/f...er-months.html
click here


EATING PLAN FOR COLDER MONTHS
Healthy comfort foods? Hot drinks that are good for you?
Green tea is yummy and good for you. Lots of soups and
stews made with veggies. If you choose to buy canned
watch for MSG and sodium. My downfall is pasta and
potatoes and bread. I can make whole grain bread. This
is where the meal plan comes in, doesn't it? lol

YOU LET YOUR CATS RUN LOOSE IN YOUR HOME
OR KEEP THEM CAGES WHEN YOU ARE NOT HOME?
I cannot stand the thought of him jumping on the table, counters
or getting into things while we are out. He sleeps in his carrier
for the same reasons. He is used to this and has no problem with
it since this is how it has been from the beginning. Am I strange
for doing this or does anyone else do something similar?

COLLEGE
I'll be starting College, Aug 24th. Was curious to know if
we have anyone else that is a college student? What are you
taking? How long have you been in college?

HYSTERECTOMY - WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
I was all set to have an ablation next week when the doctor
called yesterday and said no go. My biopsy showed that I
am not a good candidate for that. He briefly gave me 2 choices:
chemically-induced menopause for 6 months to "see if this
works" to fix the heavy bleeding & hyperplasia, OR a
hysterectomy. I would be keeping my ovaries and cervix, he
said. I have an appointment next week for a consult with him
to ask any questions and then make my decision. Anything
I should remember to ask? Anything I should consider?

PRINTABLE CALENDARS
I am hoping that someone out there might be able to give me
some help. Our small church wants to make a calendar for each

a picture to go along with that. No problem there I have found
several places where I can do that. BUT I would also like to insert
a small picture of each person on their birth date and I can't find
a program or template that I can use for that. Has anyone here
printed calendars? If so I would love some advice.
