A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hi Everyone,

Hope all of you are doing well! It's hard to believe this is near the end
of May already. Where has all the time gone?

We are in the process of seeking new content providers for vegetarian
recipes. If you know of any sources please let me know.

The rain has really slowed down the progress of our house for the last 3
weeks. Now with hurricane season approaching they are expecting even more
rain. I realize many of you on our ezine list are in drought or near
drought conditions. I wish the rain could be evenly disbursed throughout
the US so none of us would go without. We were in drought conditions last
year and I know that it's a very stressful condition.

Please remember to share this ezine with your family and friends! After all
it's how we grow!

Until next time,
Randal

U.S. LETTUCE TAINTED BY ROCKET FUEL

An environmental advocacy group claims fall and winter lettuce crops grown
in parts of the western United States contain unsafe levels of perchlorate,
a component of rocket fuel.

Perchlorate contaminates drinking water sources serving more than 20 million
people in several states, says the Environmental Working Group. Among
contaminated sources is the Colorado River, which provides water to Los
Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas and is used to irrigate 70 percent of the
nation‚s lettuce grown from October to March, the group said in a statement
yesterday.

The test was admittedly small, according to the group, involving 22 pieces
of lettuce purchased at supermarkets and examined by scientists at Texas
Tech University. The samples, from "several different distributors,"
included pre-packaged and head lettuces, adult and baby greens, organic and
conventional lettuces. Four samples contained levels of the substance that
the group estimates would exceed Environmental Protection Agency safe
levels, which have been set for drinking water but not for food.

Most of the perchlorate comes from military bases or plants operated by
federal defense contractors, according to the group, which has called on the
Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture "to move
quickly to conduct a definitive study of perchlorate contamination in the
American food supply."

Perchlorate is thought to disrupt the production of hormones and, in
fetuses, potentially cause mental retardation, loss of hearing and speech,
and motor skill deficits, the group said.

How Much Sleep Is Enough for My Child?
KidsHealth.org

"I'll go this time."

With relief, Mary rolled over in bed when her husband got up to answer their
newborn's cries. "Will I ever get to sleep through the night again?" she
thought.

Sleep - or lack of it - is probably the most-discussed aspect of baby care.
New parents discover its vital importance those first few weeks. The quality
and quantity of an infants's sleep affects the well-being of everyone in the
household, and it's the difference between having cheerful, alert parents
and members of the walking dead.

And sleep strife rarely ends with a growing child's move from crib to bed..
It simply changes form. Instead of cries, it's pleas or refusals. Instead of
a feeding at 3 AM, it's a nightmare or request for water.

It sounds like parents don't get a good night's sleep until their kids have
left home. Well, actually, it's not all that bad. But how do you get them to
bed through the cries, screams, avoidance tactics, and pleas? How should you
respond when you're awakened in the middle of the night? And how much sleep
is enough?

My husband and I took our two-year-old daughter to the home-improvement
store.

Madison got tired of walking, so my husband let her ride on his shoulders..
As he walked, Madison began pulling his hair. Although he asked her to stop
several times, she kept on.

Getting annoyed, he scolded, "Madison! Stop that!"

"But, Daddy," she replied, "I'm just trying to get my gum back."
