    It's been happening for a while now but it's time I accept I've got a set of tweens. It's funny how Pottery Barn Teen knows this and an irresistible catalog just happens to show up the day the girls and I were picking out backpacks. With just a few page flips their minds where made up and there was nothing me nor their dad could do. The tweens had chosen. I was actually tickled pink to finally not be dishing out $30 for another Hello Kitty bag they use for just one year and thought it was adorable that they both picked animal print this year.

    Both mother and fetus are at increased risk for complications of flu infection during pregnancy.

I sprung into action after a few growls, *from tummy's and mouths* and pulled out the giant bag of pancake mix. Lately I have been baking pancakes on a cookie sheet in the oven so I don't have to spend my entire morning over the stove but this morning I put on my patient mommy apron and broke out an actual pan.   But of course it wasn't a normal, cook-anything-or-everything type of pan.

    Something I look for when picking out nursery/kid bedding or room accessories, since I have such a range in ages these days, are items that can grow with the kids or transfer well to other rooms. I like to think long term for everything. So while the yellow and gray trend wouldn't normally be my first choice for colors in a nursery or kids room, because these colors would move so well elsewhere, It's really growing on me.

It was something that always pondered on my mind whilst pregnant, as I’ll be the first to admit – I knew NOTHING about general first aid let alone what to do in the horrible event of Bobby needing my help. Rachael – along with her sister Nikki Jurcutz – began their Tiny Hearts adventure back in November 2013; the first nationally accredited program of its kind.

Liev and Naomi Watts have been in California with their sons for the past year or so.  Liev has been filming there – both for his series Ray Donovan and also his movie “Pawn Sacrifice.”  Even though they are back home in NYC, I have a feeling it won’t be for long.  Naomi was spotted house hunting in L.A.

Quotes like the following leave us quaking in our boots lest we end up the parent of the sniveling brat who will never learn to take out the trash, tie his shoes or appreciate the world around him: "A lack of discipline is apparent these days in just about every aspect of American society.

From “Name Trouble” at Futility Closet: In 2004, Sara Leisten of Gothenburg, Sweden, sought to name her baby Superman (Staalman) because he was born with one arm outstretched.

    Back in June, Dan Lieberman tweeted out this photo of his newborn twins, supposedly named Raekwon and Ghostface after Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon the Chef and Ghostface Killah. These twins were not named Raekwon and Ghostface, sadly. The image was reposted to various music sites/blogs, and Raekwon himself reposted it on Instagram, but it turns out Dan was only joking about the names. (Here’s my tweet of disappointment.) Regardless, the baby name Raekwon (by itself) is no joke. More than 1,000 baby boys have been named Raekwon since the mid-1990s: 2001: 108 baby boys named Raekwon 2000:…

    This is my last post on the 2013 England and Wales baby name list, I promise. Here are five names from the list that made me curious enough to do some digging… Darcy Darcy just keeps rising, doesn’t it? Wonder how high it will go. Two variants of the name are now in the top 100, and a third is just three spots away: Darcey (651 baby girls) – ranks 84th Darcy (588) – ranks 93rd Darcie (540) – ranks 103rd Lower down on the list there are 22 more variants (I’m including compound names here): Darci (56), D’arcy (11), Darcee (9) Darcie-Mae (22), Darcy-Mae…

    I’ve always been a huge fan of hand knitted baby and kids clothes and these ones are my latest obsession.  Not trying to be fashionable or trendy, these are charming clothes made by hand and made to last through generations.  I’m lucky enough to have a mum-in-law who knits for Anya so I have bags full of baby knits that I’m saving for the next generation.  But if I didn’t, I know I would invest in some timeless classic pieces like these, that will never go out of style.  These knitted baby and kids clothes by Hambro & Miller currently go from 0 to 4 years but…

    A few weeks ago, I went for a make-up consultation with Fre-ya Barker at Fenwicks Bond St.  I wanted to try a few new beauty  products so rather than go from counter to counter at a department store, I thought it would be so much easier to go to one place where you are not restricted to any one brand.  Fre-ya is an independent make-up artist who is not tied to any brand and so she uses a very broad range.  She creates a look for you based on what you’re looking for and her entire fee (£50) is redeemable against products.   I got to try a whole lot of make-up some of which was…

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad!

  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

The example below isn’t limited to plugins, of course; it can work with any web site, product or service you can extend programmatically.  You use simple Web requests, so it’s pretty easy for a web developer to do.
