- Visit your local farmers market and buy locally grown vegetables and fruit. (It`s a fun thing to do with a friend and it`s good for the environment as transportation costs are low).
- Turn off your TV and Computer completely when you are not in the room. Even better: Make the choice to turn of all electrical equipment in your house for 30 min before you go to bed and just relax lying on your bed, thinking about the day. This helps to reduce stress.
- Remove yourself from Junk Mail mailing lists! Nobody needs all the useless letters trying to sell you stuff or trying to coax you into applying for the newest credit card. Removing yourself from Junk Mailing Lists will give you extra room in your mailbox and will save paper! (Remove yourself here).

Rubiks Touch Cube, TechnoSource, $149.99
An updated electronic version of '80s classic. Instead of twisting, a player swipes a finger across the squares to reach the next sequence. Feeling stuck? The Touch Cube will even give hints for the next move.
Apparently these would be some of the hottest toys I could buy my kids if I had them. Remember the days where a whole table was involved in the task of figuring out the next move on the Rubiks Cube? Not anymore... the new computerized version will give you hints to solve the puzzle so nobody has to go through the drag of communicating with each other anymore. Finally! Another good game made for the unsocial child we love.
Also, please buy one of the dolls above for your daughter, so she can start comparing herself at an early age to role models the fashion industry provides for us :0).

Touch is one of the most important things in life. Being touched emotionally might put you in a creative state of mind or you feel connected to someone because of it. Being touched by someone you like physically helps you heal or just relax from the day (which in my opinion is a form of healing as well). Many studies have been conducted on the human touch and how important it is to newborns to be held and cared for over long periods of time.

Cameras are a fascinating invention to me.
