In Memory of Josh Bell, Race in Peace

On December 11th the world lost a kind and generous man.


His friends are pulling together to raise the funds for his funeral and bills, to help his wife and family with this burden. Especially with the holidays right around the corner. His passing will touch the lives of many as we remember the giving man he was.


One of Josh's many friends has set up a Go Fund Me page to help the family through this time, please if you can stop by and donate: Race in Peace.

Visitation will be held on Friday December 18, 2015 from 5 to 8pm at the White & Venuto Funeral Home Inc, 188 N. Plank Road, Newburgh, NY 12550. Interment of ashes will take place on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 at 11:00AM in the family plot at Calvary Cemetery, New Windsor, NY.

Do you Santa?

It's around that time when you see the posts and comments and such about lying to your kids about Santa. Sorry but to me this is utter bullcrap. It's not lying to your kid, anymore than the tooth fairy and pretty much every parent does that. It's about the magic of the season, the magic of life.

I just think that kids should be allowed to believe in magic, should be allowed to believe in Santa. A child that believes in Santa is a child that believes that being good helps bring magic into the world. A child that believes that being good is rewarded. A child that believes in magic is the child that grows up looking for magic in every day life.

Coconut Coconut Everywhere!

So did you know I'm allergic to coconut? I didn't till a barista put some shavings into my latte and my throat started closing up. I always knew that the taste of coconut made me feel sick to my stomach, like if it so much as touched my tongue I gagged and spit it back out and felt nauseous. Well apparently that was my body's way of trying to protect me saying hey don't use this stuff.


Anyway I always avoided ingesting coconut but I used coconut oil externally, on my hair and skin mostly. Well apparently that was a bad idea. So all these years that I've been feeling a little rundown, or tired and achy and just in general sick but not sick. Its because I've been giving myself small dosages of something I'm allergic to, fantastic right? I think the worse was probably my lip balm. My beloved Burt's Bees that I'm like addicted to, has coconut oil. My face wash had coconut oil. My make primer spray had coconut oil. The kids hair stuff. Like ugh.

Do you know I had to actually read labels for lip balm? I had to google something because it sounded coconuty. Almost every freaking lip balm has coconut in it! Not fair. I found one without it but I have to use it like three times as much. But it was nice to get through a day without being itchy and I felt like a had a little more energy so that's an improvement.

You would think food allergies would just stick to food not to everything. Ugh.
