I wonder how they figure this out. Words used? Punctuation used correctly? I don't know anyone with a poorly punctuated blog or I might have just typed in the URL to see...

A Birthday Wish from Our Insurance Co

First of all, a bilingual greeting:

Happy Birthday
Feliz Cumpleanos

then the oh-so-sweet reminder to get those totally normal, non-controversial, very-good-for-you shots:

Here's a birthday wish
Especially for you.
Make sure you've got
All Your Shots
Completed by age 2.

Wasn't that thoughtful?!

Global Warming: Hoax, Hysterics, or just plain Hot !?

I came across a lecture from the ACAEF* and thought it quite a good summary of the Global Warming Debate. You really need to watch this if you've wondered just how accurate the media and/or Gore's "Truth" project is. This is only the first part of a four segment video release (on youtube), but it's all I needed (having a brain that can handle only small, incremental pieces of scientific fact at one time.).

You can find the 4 parts at each of these links: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 (thanks, American Papist)

Also, there is nice introduction of R M Carter, the lecturer, so bear with it for a minute or two.

Here's what you need to watch:

The Business of Being Born

Or, What Every Woman in the States Needs to See. How birthing is done in America needs some serious reconsideration if *45%* of births in 2005 were actually Cesarians. I've already done a post on Hospital Births, but I wanted you to see this amazing trailer of an up-and-coming documentary that actually gets it right...are you willing to listen?

The Business of Being Born

I'll remind you that once upon a time I had no idea what was really going on in the hospital concerning birthing and our precious children. I went right along with what I was told because I assumed that doctors wanted the best for me and my baby. Ladies (and gentlemen), that just isn't true. If it were, they would tell you all the risks involved when you get an epidural, or pitocin, or they wouldn't force you to stay hungry during birth, or get an IV that straps you on your back during back labor.

I *need* to inform people. I want women to make decisions based on knowledge. Only then can they decide what is *truly* best for them and their baby.

What do you think? Did this trailer cause your blood to stir as it did mine?
