In related holiday news, our Gloria wrote about procrastinating on Christmas shopping because she can’t afford to buy many gifts. Instead, she is making lists differentiating what she wants to buy and what she can afford to buy.
Katy Farber over at the Non-Toxic Kids blog had a comprehensive list of green gift ideas.
Our Suzanne had a fun diary on “super good music.” An iTunes certificate anyone?
Pat of butter in a sea of grits — isn’t that a great handle? — wrote about everything you know and don’t know about family leave in the United States.
There were many studies out this week. One had to do with how soy may actually help keep breast cancer from recurring. Another one reported by Reuters was how cell phones do not give you brain cancer. That was a relief, at least to me, since my cell phone is my only phone.
In case you missed it, Daily Kos’s navajo posted pictures from the SF Kossacks holiday party. There were a few MotherTalkers pictured, including myself, Amy and Shenanigans. Also, I posted the Kos family holiday photos this year.
Finally, here is an opportunity to meet Bay Area MotherTalkers. We are getting together at Pizzeria Delfina in San Francisco this Tuesday at 7 p.m.. Please join us!
