Delicious Dinner Rolls | How Does She...

I found this recipe on one of my favorite sites, and not only do we love crescent rolls, but the surprise looks cool!
I imagine if you don't want to or can't bake them yourself, you can always cheat and use the refrigerated dough variety from the grocery store to add your surprise to.
I would just want to make sure the ink I use is nontoxic, and to warn diners to bite carefully since it would be rude to have to make them bite into bits of paper, lol.

Check out: Delicious Dinner Rolls | How Does She...: "On the lookout for delicious recipes with the holidays right around the corner? This is a MUST try! One bite of these delicious, buttery, melt in your mouth dinner rolls and you won’t be able to stop eating!
Is your mouth watering yet? "

Lot's of Great Thanksgiving Mp3 files and ebooks free!

Homeschool Freebie of the Day: has a cornucopia of Thanksgiving goodies for all of us today:

"We have one more basket of Thanksgiving oriented goodies for you today, before we head into the holiday week! To download any of these, RIGHT CLICK the links and "save" to your computer!"

Let’s Sing About Thanksgiving (MP3 audio & PDF listening guide)

The first is this sweet episode of the music lesson program “Let’s Sing”, originally broadcast over radio for rural schools to use as a music class. In this program, young listeners will learn and sing along with some simple Thanksgiving songs and hear some Thanksgiving poems and stories. We’ve also got a PDF Listening Guide to go along with this which contains the words to the songs and poems, along with a few simple questions to review after listening.

Next, we have a second Thanksgiving themed audio program for you, just for fun listening: Baby Snooks’ Thanksgiving. Daddy and Snooks both have stuffed themselves WAY too much at their Thanksgiving dinner, so when it is naptime, the craziest dream takes place! Loads of fun for all ages!

Mark Trail: The Poisoned Turkeys

"Mark Trail" was a fun 1950's children's adventure program featuring the famous outdoorsman, based on the comic strip which still lives on in the newspaper comics today. In this exciting episode, Trail assists immigrant farmer Jim Pilgrim, whose turkeys have been mysteriously poisoned. Can Mark solve the mystery before even worse disaster strikes? Great family fun.

Fibber McGee Prepares for Thanksgiving

Next, we have a couple of short 5 minute skits featuring the legendary Fibber McGee & Molly (and Teeny the little neighbor girl) detailing a few of McGee's oddball preparations for the Thanksgiving holiday. This is a hoot!

Finally, we have a classic ebook for you: “An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving” by Louisa May Alcott. Wonderful slice of history and nostalgia! What a great way to spend the Thanksgiving holiday.

Free Pilgrim Stories ebook great for homeschool or classroom or Thanksgiving Celebrations

Today over at Homeschool Freebie of the Day: " the Erskines are offering a fun ebook: Pilgrim Stories, Book I: From Old Homes to New (PDF ebook)

Here's how the site owners the Erskines describe it:
" absolutely delightful three part serialization of "Pilgrim Stories", originally published in 1910. This is a wonderful "read aloud" resource that you can share with the kids over the next couple of weeks, to make Thanksgiving not only a family celebration, but a learning time as well.

In Part One, we meet the Pilgrims and learn why they were forced to leave their homes in search of a place they could freely worship… a journey which had many false starts, and which eventually led to a hazardous journey across the ocean in hopes of reaching the "New World" and a place they could make their own."

Here's what they say:
"Show respect and your love of traditions and use our Free poppy.

A Wild Hair...

Pinned ImageGotta Be Me / I love her hair color! I once had bright "cherry bomb" and purple hair mixed artistically for a "hands on" (or should I say "Hair on" story I did for a newspaper. I had never dyed my naturally blonde hair in my life, but when I did this for a cover story in a publication I felt like a butterfly set free from her cocoon! It was back when funky hair color wasn't so accepted or seen, so everybody turned to stare, but I didn't mind. I caught those smiles. I think it's getting time to dye my hair a fun color again. I adore purple but I also adore rainbow, so who knows what I'll choose...if I do I promise to post a pic, lol.:

Men: Cancer Symptoms You're Most Likely to Ignore - Page 1 - MSN Health - Cancer

"Annual checkups and tests such as colonoscopies and PSA assays are important, but it's not a good idea to rely on tests alone to protect you from cancer. It's just as important to listen to your body and notice anything that's different, odd, or unexplainable. (You should also listen to those close to you, such as a wife or partner, because others sometimes notice things we're unaware of—or don't want to admit.) You don't want to join the ranks of cancer patients who realize too late that symptoms they'd noticed for a long time could have sounded the alarm earlier, when cancer was easier to cure."

This is so important. Please click the title link or here to go read the rest of this vital article:

Free Materials To Help You Prevent Hearing Loss on the Farm


November 7, 2011

New Materials Available from Noisy Planet

Some people may think a farm is a quiet place, but if you live or work on one, you know that isn’t always the case. Combines, tractors, and even farm animals can create a noisy environment that puts your hearing at risk. That’s why the NIDCD has developed materials for parents of children who live and work on a farm to help them develop healthy hearing habits that can protect their hearing for life. Did you know that…

  • A tractor with a closed cab, on average, can expose the operator to noise levels of about 85 decibels, and prolonged exposure to any noise at or above 85 decibels can cause gradual hearing loss?
  • A woodshop, pig squeals, or a tractor without a cab can reach 100 decibels or higher—roughly the same noise level as a snowmobile?
  • Grain dryers and chain saws can reach 110 decibels or higher?

To learn more about protecting your family’s hearing and to order the new farm-friendly materials, visit the Noisy Planet website Also, you can now follow Noisy Planet on Facebook at
