My two oldest grandchildren who are siblings were chosen as “Students of the Month” in September. I pondered about how to praise a grandchild. I don’t feel like the way I praised my children was as effective as I would have liked so I want to try a different method of praise. I think one of the good points of being a grandparent is possessing a greater ability to approach a grandchild with more wisdom due to the recognition of past mistakes.
There are concerns being reported that people are receiving low dose microwave radiation from wireless smart meters and cell phone towers that could be genetically damaging especially to children.

I can’t imagine life without technology. I appreciate the many opportunities and conveniences it affords. On the other hand, it recently came to my attention that adverse effects are increasing from overuse of technology. Like most things, moderation is a necessary ingredient to keep balance. Researchers are documenting our society is spending too much time on computers and cell phones throwing us out of balance which is negatively affecting our emotional, mental and physical well-being.
Life without Technology
I thought it would be beneficial to some of you to share an update about my son since I began meditating for him. My son is experiencing what I consider some “signs of mental healing”. These signs are incentivizing me to stay consistent.

I did not intend to write another blog related to mass incarceration but I kept receiving information about incarceration profiteers I felt I should pass along to others. There are five large companies that promote incarceration to generate large profits of money. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but it really had not occurred to me that the motivation to incarcerate offenders for longer periods of time is related to greed. FYI, my studies mentioned some of these U.S. based companies are currently trying to win prison and jail contracts in other countries.

My husband and I are in a scripture group we enjoy participating in. Sometimes as I attend these group meetings, I feel spiritually fed and on occasion, even to the point of a spiritual feast. However, quite often I have left disappointed. Too often we allow the distractions of the world to intercept and steal what could have been a possible spiritual feast. This led me to ask myself the question, “Is food necessary for scripture group?”
There are some recent studies strongly indicating the effects of watching pornography can be related to mental disorders. The large majority of health care providers are not trained to ask patients questions about the amount of time spent on high-speed internet viewing pornography if they are plagued with any of the following common mental disorders:
- Social Anxiety
- Concentration Problems
- Performance Anxiety
These common mental disorders could be related to an addiction called “arousal addiction”.
Due to the research I did on the criminal justice system, related YouTube videos are being generated as options for me to view. I couldn’t help but notice the statistics of children of incarcerated parents. This subject isn’t a favorite subject to address, but I feel it is important for people to clearly understand the consequences of incarcerating parents.
Have you heard of Easykits.org website? If you are like me, I had never heard of them before. I want to share what I learned about Easykits.org website.
Over the past couple of months, I have received four phone messages that Amazon is hiring people to list products and write product reviews for $17 to $32 an hour. Although I didn’t erase these messages, I just ignored them until my son mentioned he is interested in working from home. So, my son and I decided to check out the four saved messages.
