Ginger helps soothe & cleanse the respiratory tract, making it a valuable tea during cold and flu season. Grate 1 heaping teaspoon of an unpeeled ginger root into a cup of hot water. Let the tea steep for 2 minutes. Strain or let the ginger settle to the bottom of the cup. It's my favorite way to stay healthy and clear headed in the winter.

I have been learning about Fair Trade and what it means and it makes perfect sense. Fair Trade is a profitable working partnership between farmers, suppliers and consumers built upon concern for people. The environment also benefits from Fair Trade. I am going to buy as many Fair Trade products as possible. To learn more about Fair Trade and all the products available, go to www.transfairusa.org.

I love Superbowl Sunday and not because of Football but because of the Puppy Bowl! What an exciting game watching the puppies run, play and tackle. It is the Fifth PuppyBowl and my 3rd year watching it. I love seeing the pug and all the mixes. My favorite this year is a cool mix breed named Candy-corn. Thank you Animal Planet for the wonderful show.
