            Friday, February 5th is the 13th National Wear Red Day. Since 2003 the American Heart Association has been promoting this national movement to wear red on the first Friday of every February to raise money and awareness for the rampant issue of Heart Disease and Strokes in women. Despite the enormous success of this campaign, 1 in every 3 women are affected by Heart Disease and Strokes each year, more than all types of cancer combined.

 

National Wear Red Day was created to raise awareness of the specifically high levels in women across the globe by raising funds for scientific research through individuals and larger groups, as well as Go Red Clothing and Accessories for purchase, providing free educational material on Heart Health, and offering various ways to get involved with the larger movement, such as corporate sponsorship and involvement in local events.

February is considered (endearingly of course) the darkness before the dawn, the period of time right before the snow begins to melt, the cold breaks, and flowers begin to bloom. Out here in Colorado the Rocky Mountains are covered in blankets of snow and speckled with Evergreen trees, reminiscent of sprinkles on a frozen yogurt swirl.

How To Write a Truly Heartfelt Thank You Note

Posted by on in DIY

 

I remember the disdain that rushed through me after every birthday party, the knowledge that my mom would soon sit me down, put a pen in my hand, and make me write those dreaded Thank You Notes. It didn’t occur to me until I was older that those thank you notes are not only a nice touch, but they are often times expected. This can lead to a drab, generic note that doesn’t go much farther than a literal thank you for the gift, or thank you for coming. There are ways to avoid the nonspecific Thank You Note trap, and in honor of National Thank You Month this January here are 8 ways to write a perfect thank you note:

Vermiculture: How to Raise Worms and Cultivate Soil

Posted by on in DIY

 

Have you been looking into starting a compost bin, but are wary of keeping a box of rotting food in your home? For those of us without a back or front yard, the idea of a compost bin is seemingly impossible without incurring an invasion of insects or rotting smells. Have no fear- Vermiculture is here!

Vermiculture (or vermicomposting) is a method of using Red Wiggler worms (Eisenia Foetida) or Red Earthworms (Lumbricus Rubellus), along with companion bacteria and microbes, to break down existing compost into fresh fertilizer in a more timely manner than that of traditional compost methods.
