A little more space makes a big difference! This makes me so happy!!

You found 9' sq. in California; that's like $1000. ;) - NOT THE CRICKET
You moved the A/C or just got rid of it? - bentley
I like the table :) - Steve C, Team Marina
Jimminy, it practically is!!! We are crazy thrilled. Betsy, we moved it, on top of the garage. It is all kinds of awesome! SteVe, thanks. We love it. We got it last summer. We knew what we wanted for a long time, but it took many years to actually find it. - Rachel Lea Fox

Original Brave Director Brenda Chapman Chimes In On Merida’s Redesign. Spoiler: She Hates It | The Mary Sue
"“I think it is atrocious!!!… Since I am no longer with the company, I’m sure they could care less what I think on the matter. But they have betrayed the essence of what we were trying to do with Merida—give young girls and women a better stronger role model. She’s strong inside and out—she’s not just a simpering pretty face waiting around for romance! She was created to turn that whole ideal on it’s [sic] head! Oh yeah… that’s why I created her… they’re just in it for the money… not the integrity. They don’t care what message they send about women, as long as it makes them a buck.” — Brenda Chapman on Disney’s Merida redesign." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Yeah, I read about that this morning. At least she looked normal (larger than all the other princesses) at the crowning. It will be interesting to see if there is a backlash now. - Anne Bouey
Yeah I liked that too, that she looked heavier and more natural during the coronation. I couldn't tell if it was just the way the costume looked or if they actually hired a heavier actress, but either way (knowing Disney) it must have been intentional. - Jessie
I don't like the new one. They made her too grownup. Cinched in her waist, made her eyes more alluring and plumped out her lips. There are other changes, but those are the ones that stand out at me. I don't mind the dress, but I would keep her not quite so curvy and less makeup and botox thank you. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
The actress playing her also walked in a more tomboyish way up to the stage, I noticed. - Spidra Webster
The one we saw at Disneyland last year was awesome. She passed by us at one point, and she had the swagger down perfectly. - Jessie

Tiny bit of formula promotes breast-feeding - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/health...
Tiny bit of formula promotes breast-feeding - SFGate
"Giving a little bit of formula - the equivalent of a single bottle over several days - to a newborn who's losing too much weight after birth might actually increase the likelihood that the baby will be breast-feeding three months later, according to a small Bay Area study. In a climate of aggressive public health policy trying to cut down on formula use and encourage new moms to give infants only breast milk, the study results are likely to be controversial, and they may seem counterintuitive, the authors said. But for a select group of new mothers who are eager to breast-feed, small doses of formula, given for a short and carefully monitored time, may alleviate some of the stress associated with breast-feeding and, in turn, give them confidence to stick with it, said Dr. Valerie Flaherman, lead author of the study, published Monday in the journal Pediatrics. "This study does not mean that all babies should get formula or that formula is better than breast-feeding. It's my strong... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"But in the United States, while roughly three-quarters of mothers attempt to breast-feed, only 30 percent of them are breast-feeding exclusively at three months, and less than a quarter are breast-feeding at all by the time the baby is a year old. The reasons women stop breast-feeding are varied and complicated and not always well understood. One possibility that the study authors... more... - Anne Bouey
"The study authors agreed that their results may not apply across the country, and they noted that Bay Area women in general are much more eager to breast-feed than women in other parts of the country. At UCSF, 98 percent of women who give birth there leave the hospital at least having started to breast-feed. Suggesting any amount of formula supplementation, if only a couple of... more... - Anne Bouey
One of my friends did something like this, and it helped a lot (she was having production issues, so there literally wasn't enough to feed her son by itself for the first month.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Breast feeding can be such a minefield. It was so hard with our first kid, and got easier with the others. But still, it can be really hard and all of them had some formula here and there. Trying to relax enough to realise that it's not the end of the world can be so difficult. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
It's really tricky, because the way to increase milk production is to continue feeding: the tactile stimulus from feeding is what stimulates prolactin and oxytocin production which leads to more milk. But I think the key is that mothers shouldn't be stigmatized due to their feeding choices, which I think a lot of breastfeeding advocates aren't partcularly sensitive of. Sure, there are a lot of benefits to breastfeeding, but a lot of those benefits can be realized with a limited course of breastfeeding. - Victor Ganata
(My comments on breastfeeding advocates are, admittedly, limited to my experiences rounding in newborn nurseries during residency and my mom's anecdotes from working as a nurse on a mother-baby unit—she's not a big fan of the drive towards exclusive breastfeeding and she'd frequently tell me about all the mothers who were reduced to tears because they had problems with feeding their baby.) - Victor Ganata
The more the baby suckles, the more milk is produced. That's the general rule. But if you have sore, cracked and bleeding nipples, are ill, or in the throes of painful mastitis then knowing you can have a break can mean the difference between carrying on and giving up all together. It's really hard to be kind to yourself when you feel like giving a bottle is failure, so I'm all for pragmatism and understanding. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I agree with you Victor. Lots of my friends have had children here in the Bay Area and lost of them have had huge amount of pressure put on them to breastfeed only. Some pushed themselves too hard when signs of problems (cracking, mastitis, etc) showed and tried to power through, only making the problems worse. If they had done a little of both they may have been able to treat the... more... - Rachel Lea Fox

Not just a girl - Jaime Moore photography - So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures.

Show all
"...no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Disney Princesses, from their beautiful dresses, perfect hair, gorgeous voices and most with ideal love stories in the mix you can’t help but become entranced with the characters. But it got me thinking, they’re just characters, a writers tale of a princess (most before 1998)…an unrealistic fantasy for most girls (Yay Kate Middleton!). It started me thinking about all the REAL women for my daughter to know about and look up too, REAL women who without ever meeting Emma have changed her life for the better. My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants and that’s what REALLY matters. I wanted her to know the value of these amazing women who had gone against everything so she can now have everything. We chose 5 women... more... - Rachel Lea Fox from Bookmarklet
Very cool and cute, bur are annual portraits a "thing" now? - Soup in a TARDIS
My mother got annual portraits when she was a kid in the 40's. The photographer did a full page ad of her through the years, beginning from when she was a toddler. - bentley
I had annual portraits from when I was a kid. I know lots of people who do and I know people who don't. In this case the photographer is the kids mother, so she gets more than annual photographs. - Rachel Lea Fox

An extremely rare white rhino, of which there are only four left in the entire world, in the Kenyan Ol Pejeta reservation, roams about the plains flanked by armed bodyguards - Imgur
John's post made me look up some figures about how many are actually left in the world and found this which makes me both sad and happy, but mainly sad that the human race is still so ignorant, i don't mean that in a rude way, but seriously, we are failing to educate people, i know ancient traditions are hard to deal with, but it's 2013 for goodness sakes :'( - Halil from Bookmarklet
Also so strange that the Northern White Rhino and the Sourthern White Rhino are not sub-categories of the White Rhino species but that the Northern White Rhino is a species of it's own separated genetically for over a million years. I have had the privilege of being up close and personal with the less at risk Southern White Rhino and they are just amazing and wonderful creatures. It makes me so sad whenever I hear about any poaching of any type of these creatures. :( - Rachel Lea Fox
Reading the comments on the article/image is awesome. "I would pet the shit out of that beautiful rhino." "He looks so epic and full of wisdom." "fuck humans, that he NEEDS to be guarded." - Hookuh Tinypants

Wow, I thought Kevin & Rachel had done an app: http://www.tuaw.com/2013...
LOL! I saw that too, and I was thinking they named it after us! ;) - Rachel Lea Fox
That looks fun. - Stephen Mack
The only problem is that the base came is free but the prices on buying things in app are pretty high. - Rachel Lea Fox
Do you need those things? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Pretty much. You start with one set of monsters and to be able to play with any other set of monsters you have to pay. The one set of monsters is fine, but even the computer plays with the other monster sets, and only being able to use the one set gets boring after a while. Also new maps cost. I don't mind paying in app, but their fee system is way high. Even buying the bundle that has everything in it is $8 which for an iphone game is too much in my opinion. - Rachel Lea Fox
Yeah, $8 is pretty high compared to most apps of that type. - Stephen Mack
At least it's not Super Monster Bros. Knock off of Mario and Pokemon IP + in app fees for a lot of things of $20-100. http://www.ign.com/videos... - NOT THE CRICKET
Jimminy, gak that is horrible! I just know that in a game I would want to play through game center with other friends, I wouldn't want all of us dependent on paying that much money. The $8 is for the pack with all the current items, they call it Season 1, so they intend to have more seasons which I assume will cost similar. Can't do it. - Rachel Lea Fox

Mom back in hospital apparently pneumonia. But we've gotten better at the sibling rotation plan down there so we already have next 24hours set for attendants. I had to give up my Killers tickets for tonight but I have seen them before and my friends haven't so it's okay.
Ugh. Pneumonia is just awful. I hope she recovers quickly. - Anika
Doctors sounds optimistic, she was fine on Sunday the last day I was with her so I think they caught it early. What will be will be. - Steve C, Team Marina
My thoughts are with you, your mom and your family, Steve. <3 - Monique the crochet freak

Oh my sweet baby kitten. Rachel, you capture the essence of all your fosters with your photography skills. I would love for you to make a foster calendar because 2014 needs one and so do I! - Janet
LOL Janet. I will think about it. Most of these are just iPhone photos, I don't know if they get big enough for printing. I need to get good photos for these guys. I've been working so hard keeping this little guy healthy, the extra photography hasn't been a top priority. This photo is so Slater though. - Rachel Lea Fox
Also, if you feel like you are missing photos of the kittens, check in at their facebook page, I've been posting most things there. https://www.facebook.com/fosterk... - Rachel Lea Fox

For a year or more I have been planning to submit some of my photography to Getty Images Stock Photography (through Flickr) to see if I could sell some images.

Would you be okay with this as neighbors front yard? I could actually do this with our front yard project we have about the same wasted space. - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Slightly afraid the fence is too prisony/ isolating from neighbors - Steve C, Team Marina
That first picture is what we had planned in our first house, before we realized the garage was crumbling apart. - Anika
SteVe, as someone who was initially skeptical that i could live in a house with a 8 foot stucco wall around, I have to say it is actually incredibly liberating. I like the idea of the windows in this fence, it could work for or against you though. But in my yard I suddenly have immense privacy and freedom that you don't always have with low fences or no fence. We don't have curtains or... more... - Rachel Lea Fox
Thanks Rachel that's what I was hoping as a best case outcome. Since 25% of our property is currently the lawn on front yard I am leaning towards enclosing it in some way to add essentially another outdoor room especially being in So Cal. The debate has come down to the type of fencing, open, short, tall, complete. So when I saw this idea yesterday it was a new direction to think of. - Steve C, Team Marina
If I didn't live remote and without neighbors I would want this as my back yard privacy oasis. Block parties are to mingle with your neighbors, not when you want to hang out in your yard. - Janet
Love this look/concept. Can't WAIT to see how you execute. - SAM
SteVe, if you are up there visiting Anne or anyone and you want to see what we have I'm happy to show you. This design for a wall would be prettier than my wall, but the wood would take more maintenance. I think it would be worth it though! - Rachel Lea Fox
SAM or others, any ideas on the type of wood? Oh yes Rachel I would love that if we don't get up there I'll send my spy Anne. :) Rachel subscribe to me so I can DM you and because I am fricking riveting. - Steve C, Team Marina
Okay, that is the weirdest thing. You are the second person in the last few months who i know was subscribed too and now I'm not. :( Fixed. - Rachel Lea Fox
And also Anne has been here before, so she might already have feedback, but is always welcome here. She can come visit the kittens too, with or without you. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
High end: Teak or Iroko (wouldn't that be fun). Lower-end: Cedar or anything you can get better boards in quantity. - SAM from iPhone
This looks like a great idea for your front yard, Steve. Would it meet city codes? Rachel and Kevin's walled yard is a very special secluded area; it really feels like their own private space for relaxing, entertaining, and Halloween decorating!! Perhaps Rachel can give you a link to their Halloween photos which may give you a glimpse of their wall. - Anne Bouey
Yeah Anne that's the hard part of front yard work dealing with city. I think my argument if they give any gruff is "look my house is purple don't you think covering some of it with a pretty wood is an improvement in your narrow minded eyes?" Actually a few peeps have block walls out front so I think we'll be okay but I will have to do the whole annoying permit thing. Annoying only in that I build stronger than code anyway so you ain't doing me any favors other than slowing me down. - Steve C, Team Marina

Sorry I haven't been responding lately. Lots of things besides kittens have been happening here this week and it's been all I can do to keep up, so any responses have slacked off.

Thanks all! So far the toenail seems to be sticking around (it's all purple and black, but I no longer think it's going to fall off). He was feeling better enough for him to have a play date today (here at my place). Still limping and hopping around but doing much better. - Stephen Mack
*whispers to Sammy: tell your Dad only ice cream and your favorite movies and books will heal your toe - and maybe a special new toy* - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Oooooh, my heart melted for name and kitteh! - Janet from FFHound!
Hey, Dory. Are you really gonna be in another movie? :D - Shannon - GlassMistress
Janet, I don't know that it will actually be his name. I just thought of the quote when I saw his squished up little face and had to post it. And yeah Shannon, I heard there is going to be a second movie called "Finding Dory". My niece Lorelei will be thrilled when it comes out! Nemo is her favorite! - Rachel Lea Fox
Well, I am now referring to my little gray as Squishy! - Janet from FFHound!

A bit about his personality: He is the most friendly outgoing kitten in the litter, gentle and cheeky and loves to cuddle, play and purr. - Melly
He looks/sounds wonderful! - Rachel Lea Fox
Our meeting is all set for Friday morning! It's a 5 hour round trip :oD - Melly

Not possible! - Rachel Lea Fox
I like hard-boiled egg whites. I just pull the yolk out and toss it. I do, however, like deviled eggs. go figure. - Bren
I love hard boiled eggs....my GI system does not. Just the whites for me. - Mary Carmen
Everybody, we now know what to send Holly for her birthday. Dozens upon dozens of hard boiled eggs. - Akiva
I love hard-boiled eggs. I eat them a few times a week, like this morning for breakfast, or sliced on a sandwich. - John (bird whisperer)
Akiva, that would put you on the fast track to the top of The List. - holly #ravingfangirl
this is one of the few foods that i hate in every way - taste, smell, texture. the whole package. - holly #ravingfangirl
I almost always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge for sudden onset snackage. Bit of Baconsalt, bit of grains of paradise? Flawless victory. - Akiva
I love the yolks. The texture of the whites can be a little rubbery, but I push through it. I prefer a good egg salad, really. - Laura Norvig from iPod
I think I like it best when diced up and turned into an egg sandwich - Rodfather
ew ew ew ew - holly #ravingfangirl
I can eat them every single day. - AJ Batac
Blech! - Katy S
I just bought a dozen eggs. Three wil go into making matzoh brie. The rest will make Holly very very sad - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
just what I need to grow muscle. dozens of them - Franc, a rememberer
I will take the orphaned and unwanted hard boiled eggs. - Janet
Free range please. - Nick B.
Yet another reason to love Holly. Boiled eggs are super nasty. #worstfoodever - A Gunny named Slickback
Yeah, soft boiled eggs or sunny side up are way better than hard boiled. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Oh, I like them okay. I don't hate them, but I don't crave them either. I love how vocal everyone is. :) - Derrick
I was just using this thread as an excuse to love on Holly, hating on eggs at the same time is a bonus. - A Gunny named Slickback
I love Holly and hate hard-boiled eggs. - Laura
Oh, I love the eggs with some freshly cracked pepper and salt - Eric - Let Me Know
More for me! :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Holly, I'm not going to tell you that you are wrong, but you're wrong. :D - Scoble, Alex Scoble
YOU ARE NOT HEEDING MY DECREE. - holly #ravingfangirl
I didn't eat eggs for 20 years after an ... incident I bumped into while volunteering at COSI in high school. A future #SaturdayFF, perhaps. - Marie
I should make pickled eggs. - Andrew C (✔)
I'm making them even though I hate them. - Katy S
I have those - with a little salt and pepper - for breakfast at least one or two days a week. High-impact protein without mess, what can be better? - WebGoddess
I'm ok with being #judged. Especially if it means I get more yummy eggs. - WebGoddess
I'd eat that. - SAM
Annnnnd, I just made a couple for breakfast. With toast. - Derrick
NTS: Holly doesn't like them hard. - DJF
LOL. also, i have no idea how me judging you gets you more, but... go on with your bad self. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you are judging me, you aren't eating them yourself, are you? No, of course not! This means that there are more yummy eggs for me to boil until they are nice and hard and then eat. That's how you judging me gets me more eggs. It's not really about the judging. It's about you being too icked out to eat my share. Or your share. Which I presume I could have? - WebGoddess

Writer's Call to Kill Feral Cats Sparks Outcry - http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news...
Writer's Call to Kill Feral Cats Sparks Outcry
"In a March 14 opinion piece in the Orlando Sentinel, Ted Williams, then editor-at-large for Audubon Magazine, advocated for trapping and euthanizing feral cats due to their rampant hunting of birds and their reputation for carrying diseases like toxoplasmosis." - Shevonne from Bookmarklet
quanti sonoooo - Katiastreghetta
He actually tells people to use Tylenol to poison ferral cats. He is telling people not just to euthanize but to kill the cats yourself and to do it in a way that could be torturous to the cats. I know he is a bird lover, but come on guy, try being human! - Rachel Lea Fox
Wow, that's.... ugh. Beyond shocking. I mean on islands where the wild cat population is known, decimating, and able to be eliminated, I can understand the call to destroy the population. But pretty much anywhere else removing the cats (by killing them or just moving them) the population will only drop temporarily. And the idea of someone advocating poisoning is utterly disturbing. Poisoning is the worst population control method, and that's when professionals do it. - Heather
sure thing! we also have to kill all birds - they spread diseases too, cows, pigs, sheep - the spread diseases too, moreover - almost all known infectious human diseases came from them!! Oh, and we have to kill all the rats - because they spread not the laughable toxoplasmosis, but plague. There will be no feral cats to do the latter for us. - Agent of Evil, Джомсом

Organizing my hats. My project is almost done... I need to get the mirror repaired and bring it up before I finish putting up the rest of the hooks. But I love the progress so much I wanted to share!

Wow. You are really organized. I would've just started tossing hooks on the wall. You seem to go about all of your projects like this. Admirable! - Anika
I just hate patching walls if I do it wrong. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
Kevin keeps saying that too Jkram! - Rachel Lea Fox
It looks like you're building a climbing wall. - Brian Johns
Sparky, I would not suggest climbing on those. Most are in really well, but a couple were hindered by the vent behind that corner and shouldn't really bare more weight than a hat. - Rachel Lea Fox
really amazing , u r brilliant - Ashraf Mansour
Thanks Ashraf. - Rachel Lea Fox
