Moms to the rescue!

Moms are coming to the rescue in Portland, Oregon where federal troopers are storming the streets.

Self-identified Moms have come out en masse in July 2020 to protest Trump’s order of sending in federal troops to take back control of cities where Black Lives Matter (#BLM) protests, fueled by the senseless killing of George Floyd in May 2020 by Minneapolis police, continue. These federal troopers are unidentified, have taken protestors into unmarked vehicles, and have been accused of “blatant abuse of power.”

According to a July 22, 2020 story in the Washington Post, “Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) has for days called for the immediate removal of federal troops.”

It’s hard to believe that we’ve come to this. We are definitely living in dangerous times. But, never fear, the Moms are here! Not only are they setting a great example of courage, the Moms are also showing us the importance of fighting against what is looking more and more like authoritarian rule.

Thank you, Moms.


Back after a long nap…

In case you’re wondering what happened to us, The Idea Garden has been a rather dormant lately.

take a nap
Just like all good dogs do, we took a nap, too.

Why? Well, there are all sorts of reasons, but the main one has to do with the irresistible urge to take a nap. (LOL!)

Kidding aside, this much needed rest, somewhat of a hibernation since it took place over winter, has, happily, sparked a bucketful of creative juices. Renewed and recharged, our dormant garden has rewarded us with tons of great ideas and the energy to act on them…like this new website.

Watch as we load our store shelves with “wonderful, amazing, useful, can’t-live-without, and any other superlative you’d like to add” tips, tools, books, guides, workshops, webinars, and presentations.

It’s good to be back!
