  1. Thanks for this interesting assortment of blogs on family life. I enjoyed how wide-ranging it is. I especially enjoyed the blog on foreclosure and pets–something that I’ve never thought about before. I’m glad someone has and done something about it.

  2. Thanks for the list of Blogs! I’m going to take some time and go through the list I know that I will find “To Be Debt Free” very interesting. I think it’s great to teach people how to get out of debt. The economy is in financial crisis at the moment. Also, I really enjoy cooking different recipes for my family.
