ARTICLE PICK OF THE WEEK

CALLING ALL PINTEREST FANS

Good morning ladies (and gents if we still have any?)

I am looking for FC fans that would like to help promote FC on Pinterest. How? I am going to set up a group/shared pinboard on my Pinterest account. Because of my own following on Pinterest, I guestimate that the FC shared board will have around 4,000 followers as soon as its created.

What do I do?
I would add you to the Pinterest board which would allow you to pin to that board along with anyone else who is on it. It's by invitation only, so only those that are added by me can pin to it. The goal is to gain more exposure to FC through Pinterest and hopefully draw some new subscribers and members to the site. You would occasionally go to the FC website and pin an article, recipe, craft etc to the board. A minimum of two pins per week would be great, but more would be fabulous!

What do I get?
If there is interest in this, I will create a new award for FC Pinners. So each invited pinner will receive an award. For now you will receive one award, however, depending on how it pans out and on each of the pinner's individual activity, additional awards may be given for undetermined reasons (i.e. most pinned for the month, most daily activity, etc)

If this is something you would be interested in, please reply to this thread saying so AND include your Pinterest profile url. To get that, go to Pinterest, log in, then click on your name in the upper right corner. Then copy the web address of the page that you are taken to. For example, mine looks like this Amanda Formaro (amandascookin) on Pinterest

QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK
-------------------------

BUILDING A GREENHOUSE?
Has anyone ever built or purchased their own green house? I'm looking into it and think it would help plants climate wise, especially during the winter. I am not sure where to begin, but I have seen easy build green houses at Sears. It is made with gauge aluminum and polyethylene sheeting. Any recommendations? How much did it cost you to set everything up?

SHOULD YOU GET RID OF YOUR LANDLINE?
I am thinking about getting rid of our landline. Dh is against it. Has anyone done this? Pros and cons? If we do this will need to change our internet provider. I am getting prices on that now. I do know the internet would be better.

SIMPLE HEALTHY SNACKING ON - THE GO!
I am expecting my first child and am always looking for ways to ensure I'm eating the right things. Even before I discovered my husband and I were expecting I enjoyed finding and trying new healthy snacks. My doctor helped me with this list. I later found out (he shared with me) that it's based of a similar list on a pregnancy site that has a ton of great advice for eating healthy. This is a small and simple list of yummy snacks that are healthy, easy, on-the-go. Enjoy!
Small apple with 1 ounce of low-fat string cheese or 1 Tbsp. of peanut butter
Half of a whole-wheat pita pocket, half of a banana, and 1 Tbsp. of peanut butter
Baby carrots, red pepper strips, and celery with 1/4 cup of Greek-style hummus dip ...........
