(Holidays) VeteransDay_HonoringVeterans.jpgHonor Veterans and their families.  The men and women who have served our country are a strong part of why we have freedom and choices.  As a greater awareness of sacrifices both in service and post service has increased in recent years, more and more individuals and businesses are honoring and saying thank you to vets who chose military service.  Many local restaurants offer free meals.  The Tyrolean is serving its own adopted group of 20 vets.  The San Lorenzo Valley Museum honored veterans with a dinner. 

There's a parade in Watsonville. Veterans are invited to march in the Walk of Honor Parade at 10 a.m., down Main Street and East Beach Street, from St. Patrick's Church to the Veterans Memorial Building, where there will be an Hour to Honor Ceremony beginning at 11 a.m.  Watch performances by the Vets Tin Can Band at Cooper and Union in Santa Cruz 11-1. 

At Lighthouse Point, 10am, join in the dedication of a memorial to commemorate the service of the 54th Coast Artillery, an all black unit stationed at Lighthouse Point during World War II. The ceremony will be attended by two surviving members of the unit as well as other military personnel and will be followed by a documentary film screening at the Vets Hall.

For fun on this rainy Veteran's Day there is a special Veterans Day Skate at the Santa Cruz Roller Palladium 1-3pm. Get  Coupon.

"The end is nothing; the road is all," wrote the worldly yet ultimately reclusive and very private novelist, Willa Cather.  In a small Nebraska town in the early 1870's  she was given and she took, her right to make choices.  She was curious, slightly rebellious (at age 12-13 wore boys clothes and a boy haircut), an avid reader, fascinated with opera and adventurous.   She went east, wrote, became editor of a popular woman's magazine, traveled abroad and in her 40's began writing her novels about individuals' "road" in the midwest (Oh Pioneer, My Antonia) and west (Death Comes to the Archbishop). 

Similarly we strive to provide for our children "the road" that prepares them for their own journey.  On Saturday, Michael Olson, local story teller and host of the nationally syndicated talk show, Food Chain Radio, explores with two locals the effects of how we handle chores and allowances.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukka events are just around the corner.  Check the calendar frequently for new entries.  Click here for Thanksgiving Weekend Camps.

Enjoy listening and have a great weekend! Parmalee.

  Suki: Moderating Moderation ~ Viva: Candied Walnuts

In general, I'm a proponent of "moderation in everything." I believe, as my parents did, that allowing not necessarily healthy but pleasurable activities, as long as they're balanced with healthy ones, is a good thing. In raising kids, this translates to a household where:

* We eat sugar, but not as a replacement for healthy calories
* We let kids play and explore the world, even when it replaces academic pursuits
* We watch movies, but as a treat instead of a way of life.

The place where I've had trouble with this approach in my parenting is with activities that are completely a waste of my kids' time, and which have addicting qualities. So we simply have never...  continued>>>>

Indulging in food is one of life's great pleasures. But, indulgences can be expensive, and are often the first thing to get booted out of our budget when we need to save money. Latte at work? Nixed, to save $70/month. Pizza delivery every Friday night? Nixed, to save $100/month.

Make enough of these budget cuts and I start to feel deprived. That's why I seize upon indulgences that happen to be inexpensive- they allow me to experience something decadent, without hurting my wallet too much. I guess I would call them frugal indulgences. One of them is candied walnuts- they are truly decadent, and it costs about half as much to make them at home than to buy them at the store.

 What do children with chores learn in their growing up?

(Photos General) ChildrenwithChores_SantaCruzParent.jpgWhen the nation was young we raised children on farms and gave them chores to do. Now we raise children in cities and give them allowances to spend. This leads us to ask...

What do children with chores learn in their growing up?

This Saturday at 9am Pacific, the Food Chain Radio show with Michael Olson hosts Audrey Kohout from the K Ranch Creamery in Corsegold, California, and Nancy Vail from the Pie Ranch in Pescadero, California, for a conversation about farming, with children.

Topics include the kinds of chores given farm children by their family; how giving children farm chores is justified with the spirit of child labor laws; and what children with farm chores learn that children with allowances can't learn.

Every Saturday 9am, listen on your radio (1080AM), computer or mobile deviceto Food Chain Radio with Michael Olson.
