Congratulations! It’s breast cancer!

Okay really?  You don’t buy the cake, just the pan so you can frost it however you want to to “celebrate” your disease of choice.  I know sometimes the other cancers get mad at breast cancer for all the attention it gets so here is a link for every color ribbon and it’s meaning.  For example if you see a ribbon that is Orange, Green, Yellow, Blue, and Purple it is for STD awareness.   No, I’m not kidding, really.

Ben and Jerry’s and breast milk

Okay – This is more than I can handle.This is from Treehugger…

Time for the next chapter in the ongoing quest for chemical-free, ethical eats. PETA wants human breast milk to replace cow’s milk in ice cream. In a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, PETA urges Ben & Jerry to “do consumers and cows a big favor by making the switch to breast milk”. Yes, we are talking “Chunky Monkey Around“, “Butter Pectoral Pecan” and “Peanut Double-D Cup“! But wait! There is more

Not a Nigerian businessman this time.  This is from John Aravosis over on America Blog.

CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL

This blog is now suspended

Until the nation’s severe financial crisis is over. In this difficult time, we should all be putting our country first.

I’ll be doing my part by laying on the couch and watching Slacker Uprising tonight.   The film is ready for free download today on the assumption that it has not also suspended itself in solidarity with the economy.

My hero of the day: Livia Ionce

Many of you have already read about Livia Ionce, the Canadian woman who has given birth to her 18th child.  In doing some further research I have found this interesting tidbit;  she has had no multiples.  Now think about that.  She is 44 years old and had 18 individual pregnancies. Now assuming that her pregnancies were full term (that may means she has spent 13 and a half years pregnant.  Now try this one.  With the exception of one child they were all vaginal deliveries. 

I have two children that I love but some days getting out of the house (on time, LOL) is a major accomplishment. Now I don’t know about anyone else out there but I also remember pregnancy, sleep deprivation, breast feeding and the effects that they have on both body and mind. 

So here’s to you Livia for doing something that I and millions of others could never imagine.

ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia – A Romanian immigrant has given birth to her 18th child in British Columbia, making her the province’s most prolific mother in 20 years. Proud dad Alexandru Ionce said Saturday that his 44-year-old wife, Livia, gave birth on Tuesday. Their daughter Abigail weighed in at seven pounds, 12 ounces.

“We never planned how many children to have. We just let God guide our lives, you know, because we strongly believe life comes from God and that’s the reason we did not stop the life,” said Alexandru Ionce.

The couple immigrated to Canada from Romania in 1990 and now live in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Their 17 other children range in age from 20 months to 23 years old. Ionce said he did not know if the couple would have more children. The family now has 10 girls and eight boys. “We would have liked a boy to be even,” he said. “We thank God all of them are healthy and happy.”

CSI cookies

Now me, I’m a Law and Order junkie so now I’m wondering. Do I need Weight Watchers or Will and Grace? I’m not normally one to file lawsuits but does this mean I can sue Dick Wolf?

In a paper published in the Journal of Consumer Research, “The Sweet Escape: Effects of Mortality Salience on Consumption Quantities for High- and Low-Self-Esteem Consumers”, Dirk Smeesters and co-author Naomi Mandel (Arizona State University) reveal that “consumers, especially those with a lower self-esteem, might be more susceptible to over-consumption when faced with images of death during the news or their favorite crime-scene investigation shows.”
