Welcome to our new location. Due to logistics we have had to move our blog from the Rogers Public Library's webpage to a stand alone blog and link it back to RPL. This will be to your advantage as you will always be able to go right to this blog. On the other site, we have more than one blogger which did create some unexpected situations and we wanted you to be able to see all of our blog postings.
You will also be able to make comments here which we would like for you to do. We want to hear your feedback - if you like what we offer and what other items you would like to see posted here, as well.
Gradually we will would like to transfer all our previous posts to this blog site. So if you want to search for previous items you will be able to do so here. However, it may possibly mess up the dates of the posts. But we will see. If we can not, we may just leave them where they are with a link here for there! There will be a learning curve to this venture for a while, so bear with us. We hope you enjoy our new location.
August 20, 2013 - UPDATE: I have added tabs to the blog layout so you can now access the posts that we have done at our previous location. They will not be in the Archive listings however, only on the tabs. sg
Well I said that I would highlight another blog today. What I have discovered over the last few days, as I've scoured the web is that there are at least 3000 (or more) genealogy blogs. So there's no way that I am going to be able to look at them all and give you the best ones. What I can do is highlight the ones that seem to come to the top (like cream) on repeated lists. So that is what I will be doing. It may take me more time than I expected so in the mean time you may see other topics discussed here while I peruse the blogs.

- Spread a piece of whole grain bread (or toast) with a tablespoon of peanut butter (or other nut butter, such as almond butter).
- Smear on top a teaspoon or two of honey.
- Whole grain bread provides important fiber and nutrients. MyPyramid recommends half of the grains you eat be whole grains.
- One tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter counts as a 1 ounce equivalent in the Meat and Beans group of MyPyramid. Including nuts and nut butters in meals can boost your intake of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Most fat in the diet should come from these types of fatty acids.
- One to two teaspoons honey (about 21 calories per teaspoon) add a bit of sweetness at a calorie level that fits into most meal plans. NOTE: DO NOT feed honey to children under one year of age. Honey might cause infant botulism, a potentially fatal disease. For more details on botulism and young children from the National Honey Board, click HERE.
