Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


More parenting trivia

From the February issue of Parenting (can you tell I'm catching up on my magazine reading?):

Parenting poll:
What moms want most from you this year ...
41 percent - Do the housework
41 percent - Take me out to dinner
18 percent - Buy me roses

Simplest secret to making roses last
Drop a couple of pennies in the vase, said Paul James, host of HGTV's Gardening by the Yard. The copper helps stop the growth of bacteria, which prevents water intake and can make your roses wilt. (Works for all hard-stemmed flowers).

    The horticulture journalist in me has to disagree with the penny idea. Maybe if you used a REALLY old penny ... Pennies today are made with copper-plated zinc.
    You can use this factoid next time you play Trivial Pursuit.
