The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet by Karin Knight

I wish I could say I decided to make baby food because I thought it would be much better for my baby’s health or much more cost efficient. The truth is… After running a few out of town trips where I made sure the kids were stocked with snacks, but no ...more

I was fine at stopping at book 1, and should have stuck by that decision. The book is enjoyable, but in a take it or leave it kind of way. I don't want to read the third, but now feel like I owe it to myself to complete the series..

I can’t stand when grown adults call their dad “daddy”, but putting that aside, I enjoyed this book. Very predictable, but unfolds nicely.

I try not to be a jerk in my reviews, but I’m not always successful... Any insight this book has into the show is something you’ve likely assumed was going on. There’s nothing super new or mind blowing that you’re going to learn and, quite frankly, i ...more

Neil Postman
“What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egotism.

Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumble puppy.

As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists, who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny, “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.”

In 1984, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that our desire will ruin us.”
Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business

Kevin Hearne
“Will you tell me about Genghis Khan’s whores while I’m in the bath?" "Hordes, not whores. He had both, though, now that you mention it." "Sounds like he was a busy guy." You have no idea.”
Kevin Hearne, Hounded

“To different minds, the same world is a hell, and a heaven.”
Joseph Priestley, 1733-1804

“We should like to have some towering geniuses, to reveal us to ourselves in color and fire, but of course they would have to fit into the pattern of our society and be able to take orders from sound administrative types.”
Joseph Priestley, 1733-1804

“Many a man is praised for his reserve and so-called shyness when he is simply too proud to risk making a fool of himself.”
Joseph Priestley, 1733-1804
