What I'm Reading...

"The Plug-In Drug: Television, Computers, and Family Life (25th Anniversary Edition)" by Marie Winn.

Can this book scare me straight? Will anything help me end my TV and Internet addictions? Stay tuned to find out.

Apron Evangelism

The Hillbilly Housewife has an excellent article on Apron Evangelism. The rest of her website is great too, by the way.

Not everyone wants or likes to drink alcoholic beverages. Hooray, for the Food Network for realizing that. They have kindly provided alternatives, dinner pairing suggestions, and party tips to make every teetotaler content.
