Soil Association Organic Fortnight 3-17 September 2010

I want to highlight the Organic Fortnight which is taking place from 3-17 September 2010.

This is a national campaign sponsored by the Soil Association and celebrates everything organic. The aim of this years fortnight is to increase customers awareness that organic is accessible and affordable - encouraging shoppers to choose organic alternatives of products they use everyday.

Do get involved during the fortnight and discover why organic is good for your well-being and your planet, it is also kinder to animals and wildlife.

The popular Organic Food Festival is being held on 11-12 September at Bristol's scenic Harbourside. It is Europe's largest showcase of the organic community, with hundreds of organic products, cooking demonstrations with Raymond Blanc and other top chefs, childrens taste workshops and a lively Street Food Bazaar and Organic Bar.

If you live close to Bristol I would certainly recommend you go and take a look.

Baby Shower

I attended a Baby Shower this weekend and enjoyed it so much, I just had to tell you about it!

My friend is expecting her first baby, in four weeks time and it was decided that a surprise Baby Shower should be held for all her family and friends to get together and celebrate the future birth. 

All guests arrived 30 mins prior to the mum-to-be's arrival and made sure that they parked away from the house so that she would not guess.  And she didnt have a clue... the look on my friends face when she walked through the door to cheering, was of complete shock!!

We had a buffet lunch and cake before the fun began...  Everyone had bought a present(s) that were for both the baby and mum incl. toiletries, clothes, and toys.  It was so lovely to see my friend open all the new baby gifts and new mum gifts, she was beaming with joy.

After the gifts it was game time and we played baby bingo, guess the baby (everyone had to take a pic of them when they were a baby) etc.  Everyone had a lovely time and it was great to see my friend so relaxed and happy prior to the arrival of her new baby.

I did not have a Baby Shower prior to either of my children, however, I would highly recommend a little get together before the birth.  Great for the mum-to-be to relax with friends and family. 

Please take a look at our website, surprise the mum-to-be with a gift that cannot be bought on the high street and are ideal for a baby shower

Save the Manatee from Extinction

When Cathy and I were trying to come up with our logo it was natural for us to choose animals and by mixing a manatee form with cow attributes we came up with our Molliemoo logo (which we think is very cute! see to the right).

For this reason, I want to highlight the Manatee's plight as they are close to extinction. Manatees are Florida’s official state marine mammal and their decline is largly down to human activity.

Since record-keeping began in 1974, more than 41% of manatee deaths where caused by humans and almost 34% were due to watercraft collisions (the largest known cause of manatee deaths).

They are beautiful grey aquatic mammals with bodies that taper to a flat, paddle-shaped tail. They have two forelimbs, called flippers, with three to four nails on each flipper. Their head and face are wrinkled with whiskers on the snout.

My daughter saw a picture of them and told me it was an Elephant (which made me smile) but she was not far wrong as Elephants are a close relative to the Manatee.

Please take a look at the following website which tells you all about their plight and how money is being raised to save them.

Website: Savethemanateeclub

My understanding is that with increased awareness, education, regulations, and enforcement, manatee deaths caused by humans could be substantially reduced and this would lead to the eventual recovery of the Manatees.

I think they are beautiful animals and should be saved from Extinction
