Protect Online Information & Website

When you develop a website, whether it’s for private or commercial use, you will want to ensure that your information and any customer information that may pass through your local stored objects are secure and safe! There is so much that goes into developing a good website so please make sure to understand the importance of protection such as JavaScript blacklist and using protected mode.

Now a days everyone seems to be going from brick n mortar store fronts to online websites where customers can shop faster and not have to leave the privacy of their home. I personally prefer to shop online versus the brick n mortar store because it’s easier and you can do it at any time of day or night!

When I shop online I want to always check the protection and reputation of the company and website to ensure that my customer information is going to be kept private. There is no guarantee with technology but there can be as tight as possible security to ensure that there is such a low rate risk of information being stolen that you feel safe and confident in shopping on the business website.

Refusal To Give Child Hot Lunch

My daughter has eaten hot lunch for the past three years of school and after watching Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution a few times I began to question if my daughter was eating too many calories at school for lunch. Another bad habit my daughter started getting into one year was eating breakfast at school after I fed her breakfast. Ki would ride the bus to school & then join her friends for breakfast. I was not impressed! Hopefully this year that won’t happen.

After seeing just how many calories are in chocolate milk and some school lunches across the nation on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution I made a decision to start doing cold lunch this year. This decision was discussed with my daughter and we both agreed she could choose hot lunch maybe once a week but the remainder of the time she would have cold lunch. I am hoping by me knowing what she is eating for lunch I will better be able to get a hold on her weight gain.

When Ki is home with me I am very anal about her food intake. Bad metabolism runs in the family and apparently she was not so blessed with bad metabolism as well. Being active and watching our food intake is something we do as a family, not just singling out Miss Ki.

Ki goes to her Dad’s two nights a week overnight & apparently he wishes her to have hot lunch on the school days he brings her, which is fine, that is his choice on his days. I have no say in that fact. Now Miss Ki is upset because I had told her she could choose hot lunch maybe once a week but I told her that since she is eating twice a week when she is with her Dad overnight that she can’t choose hot lunch on my days unless for some reason it’s an extra special occasion at school for lunch or I ran out of food for lunches.

Miss Ki is upset with me, but in all honestly I want to fully test out if school lunches are not good for her in the way that it allows for higher calorie intake than her body can handle. I simply have that right as a parent to make a decision to feed my child the lunch I feel she needs for energy and healthy eating.

What do you think about school lunches? Have you seen Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution? Let me hear your thoughts.

Are You Looking for Affordable Internet?

It seems with people not having the greatest working hours and the same amount of money coming in as all the costs of living start to rise even more that internet has become sort of an extra in some households. This isn’t something that everyone can afford unless they are looking at an affordable dial-up internet service.

I personally have a high speed internet but in the past I have chosen a high speed dsl plan for my home to save some cash.  I was very happy with DSL service and way back in the day when I didn’t use internet for work I was happy with dial up service as well.

Now that I work from home, I know that I need to research internet service providers to ensure that they offer something that will work for my high usage. A typical family that is looking for internet for their child to do homework from school or maybe just wants to be able to have that access should the need arise to look something up online, then I would highly recommend a DSL or Dial Up plan.

When looking for an internet service provider, I would also be intrigued to look at American owned companies. We need to keep some money back here in the country to ensure that we are feeding our families that seem to be getting low on food and money these days. So if you are looking to have internet access but want to ensure it’s affordable then you need to remember all of your internet service options out there!

Happy Labor Day

What Labor Day Is

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Who Founded Labor Day, Still Open for Debate

More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.

Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.”

But Peter McGuire’s place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.

Enjoy your Labor Day, thank you for all the hard work you do and take today to chill out, maybe have a BBQ!
