Welcome - or welcome back! - to My Very Own Crunchy And Progressive Parenting Blog Mark Two. The first one was lost when I deleted a renegade gmail address from my computer and Google's own customer assistance provided zero assistance to this customer. :-( Since there seems to be no way to retrieve the blog, and since no actual humans seem to work at Google, it was easier to just start over.
I hope to eventually restore the content that I still have here on my hard drive (thanks to The Wayback Machine for so many helpful caches!),
although like an idiot I didn't save everything here. Won't make that
If you're looking for a place to read stuff about parenting, education,
healthy food, and, well, whatever other stuff comes to my mind, this is
the place! I come here from time to time to "unpack" all the stuff that
builds up in my head - not on any particular schedule, just whenever I
need to unload.
So come on in and read and learn and share your own learning!

Hi and Welcome!
I've always been a musician and music teacher, which got me interested in how the brain works. When my first child was born with some neurological issues that we've since learned can be helped by our diet and lifestyle, we began to learn more.... and more... and now my head is spinning with the things I'm learning about how the Standard American Diet (and lifestyle!) not only was hurting us but how it impacts all of us. Frustrated with The System that assumes that One Size Fits All and that leadership (and therefore information and power) must come from the Top Down, I suppose I'm also just a teensy bit subversive. LOL (That and I'm into parenthetical asides.) I'm the author of My Very Own Crunchy and Progressive Parenting Blog and Scratchpad; my eldest is the primary author of Stuff I Wish My Teachers Knew (under construction). :-)
