Some 100s/Toad Hunting/Healthy Food Options

Jet stream will change little over the next week or so. That means that storms will ride across the central plains to the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys and through the Appalachians and the Eastern Seaboard. That will be the case over the next 2 days with 2 areas at a Slight Risk of Severe Storms. Very hot across the southwest and south with highs in the 90s, even some 100s in west Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s across the northern plains and northern Rockies...there will be some showers in these locations as well.

Houston will continue with the hot weather...more highs in the hit 90 on Thursday. There might slight relief early next week. No big rain events are expected in the next week.

Let's do salt or salar, pronounced sah-LAR. Sometimes we eat too much salar. See AND MORE for one solution to that problem.

Kids like to eat and there is a lot of that in our award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco. Kids who watch the DVD get a kick out of watching what other kids do. Order your copy from You can also order from,,,,,, and Volume 2 is almost ready for release and Volume 3 will follow soon thereafter!!! For our English as a Second Language (ESL) version, got to

Sarah and I found 3 toads tonight. We named the first one Houdini because he kept finding ways to get away. We named the second one Don Juan because he was chirping like crazy (a sound only the males make--especially during mating season, which has begun by the way). The last one Sarah named after herself--Sarah. Another way to tell the males and females apart is that the females tend to be the big ones. The males are usually smaller. We made 14 videos about toads--with me narrating and giving information about them. They are on Just search for TOAD HUNTERS. Don't forget the caps. I also have a link to one of the videos in the favorite links list at right--scroll way down.

Sarah has gotten into baked sweet potatoes. I've been wanting to introduce these into her diet as they are rich in fiber and Vitamin A. I just bake them in the oven or microwave them. Cut them open and put in some healthy butter like Smart Balance and some salt. She loves 'em!

Speaking of salt--that is the reason canned vegetables are frowned at. But, now there are many options for no salt added. The difference is astounding--per serving the regular veges have about 220 mg of sodium. The no salt added variety has 10 to 15 mg of sodium. So, go ahead and eat that type of canned veges. They are good for you and you can't beat the convenience.

Happy Friday everyone!
