I bought the Master Cleanse book last week and intend to do my first true MC in July. I would like to cleanse my body and drop a few pounds. I am undergoing an emotional transformation now. I am ready for the commitment and work it takes to complete the MC. I purchased the ingredients at Whole Foods. Everything to get started cost $35. I will need fresh organic lemons and more water.


I have been reading the book Lose Weight, Have More Energy Be Happier in 10 Days. Now who does not want that? I have done fast throughout my life but have never done a true Master Cleanse. I have prepared myself mentally and my family will be preparing their own food.

Today I will eat only fruits and veggies to make a smoother transition. I am enjoying my last pot of coffee, yes, I said pot. And I did have a copped beef barbeque sandwich with chips at Ironworks last night. I enjoyed every bit too.

My primary goal is to feel better and lose weight. Further I would like to reduce my coffee and sweets cravings. I’ll keep track of my journey here. We’ll see the results in ten days.

Three Steps to a Healthy Neighborhood - BadArt

Shop close to home
Every online deal is not a deal. For example, I wanted to save money but I had waited 7 days for a cheap online battery that did not work. I’m still waiting for a refund from a state side address that delivered from China. My local Batteries Plus shop owner told me how to save my battery life and would have saved me time if I had gone there first.
Local Shop Owners Want to Know
Ask local shops if they could carry items you purchase often on line. They may even deliver. Sign up for local news letters that may help you save money and tell business when they are doing something wrong. Small businesses can change and grow and thrive with our help. I buy online because it is easy buying local can be easy too.
Better Environmental Choice
You may save by gas not driving but calling locally will save too. Local guys can order in bulk and have items in days making it a greener choice. Buying local is giving to the community. Give local shops a chance before pushing purchase online. Local shops are giving knowledge, taxes and hiring employees. Helping your local economy helps everyone.
Austin Business Alliance says “for every $100 spent at a locally owned store, $45 stays here. But shopping at a chain store leaves only $13.” There is nothing worse than a dying neighborhood. Making local purchases opens ties to community and builds a thriving local economy. Buy local and American when possible.

Della Badart worked for years as a newspaper Advertising Sales Representative. In that position she has seen many businesses grow and many fail. Local businesses build it and hope you will come. Please give them the opportunity to be successful. Be apart of the change.

Do you think more privileges would help teen be more responsible?

Do you think more privileges would help teen be more responsible?

My freshman is smart but has been failing one class all year because of poor habits.  He forgets to turn in work, studies for the test minutes before the test.  A good friend suggest I give him more privileges and when he is doing poor immediately take them away.  If he has more to lose he will work harder.  My goal is to make him a responsible adult.   

We are talking about giving him later curfew times  and an excuse from dinner a few days a week.  We will add to this as he gets older.   In return he will do his chores without asking and have good grades. 

ps. He thinks we are too strict.
