Happy Birthday to Miss Faye :)
If you need a weekend getaway, Northampton, MA kicks ass! We stayed at this hotel
http://www.hotelnorthampton.com/ The city is a college town with some great restaurants and you can walk around, check out some art, go on scenic drives, I highly recommend it if you have not been.
This article was FANTASTIC and informative when it comes to epigenetics: "Our lifestyles and environment can change the way our genes are expressed, leading even identical twins to become distinct as they age." This can open the door to the way diseases are treated and I think can be a breakthrough for not just cancer, but autism. Yes folks, your environment/food/lifestyle/genetics ALL affect you.
I covet, yes covet, these antique stoves
Screw the normal, blah wall coverings
NOW THAT ROCKS!!
