Here is a guide to some common childhood diseases. COLD Cold, also called common cold, is usually caused by viruses infecting the throat, nose and sinuses. Children happen to get more cold infections during the fall and winter season since the cold conditions enable the disease-causing virus to thrive.

January Gramma in a Box

Hey neighbors!! If you have never heard of Gramma in a Box , you are missing out!!  This is a really fun box to complete with your children, grandchildren, even your spouse.  My husband actually helped me with mine this month!!  He melted the chocolate discs, mixed ingredients and even decorated a couple cookies.  Of course he ate quite a few too!! We started out with the New Year Sparklers.  After he melted the chocolate discs we dipped the pretzel rods in the chocolate, just the tips about 1/3 of the way down.  We then added the pastel dots over the chocolate on the rods.  He barely waited for them to set before he tried one!! Game Day Crunch was next on our to do list.  For this one we used a bowl to which we added the popcorn, broken up pretzels, cranberries, candy coated chocolate bits and peanuts.  Next we poured the rest of the melted chocolate into the bowl and stirred it all up.  We spread it out on the wax paper that was included in the box.  He definitely ate

Interview With Ben Rosenbaum | When Calls The Heart Season 7

  Mercy:  Can you share a little of what you’ve been up to since we last chatted?  Ben:  It’s been a while since we last chatted! I turned another year older; I did a bit of traveling with family and friends on a few different occasions, including to Hawaii and New York; I took up Jiu Jitsu thanks to Martin Cummins; and of course I filmed season 7 of WCTH!  Mercy:  If you could play a role in any movie from the past, who/what would it be?  Ben:  This one is a tricky question, because all of the roles and films I most admire are ones that I wouldn’t want to alter or change by placing myself in them.
