I found this powerpoint about research sampling helpful.  I'm so glad people out there make these available to the masses.  It saves me so much time!

Great Quote

”To have laughed often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded.” 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Babies DVD

The director followed four babies in different parts of the world for one year each and then created this documentary.  Very interesting!

Golden Books

Don't get me jewelry.  Don't get me the latest fashions.  I will love you if you give me books.  

My uncle sent me the best gift of the year.  Of the decade!  A huge box of Golden Books.  

He was downsizing and wanted to give his children's books to someone who would appreciate them and BOY DO I!!!!

Sorry for the bad lighting that day on these pics.

Willy Wonka book

We are Willy Wonka fans around here so of course, I had to get this book of memoirs.  It had some great insider secrets and was a good read.
