5/18-We started our Facebook page first and was thrilled to have one.  A couple of weeks ago, when there was that issue with the heartbleed virus, we changed some settings and have had problems everyday since then with our page.  So, now we're having fun tweeting away @ daily@14suggestions.  We should be close to 100 now.  We try to tweet articles we find on the internet everyday that help parents 
 .
 Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.  We want to address topics and concerns that matter to you. Our email address is suggestions@dailydestinations.com.

8/28-Happy Labor Day Weekend.  We're considering going to the L A County Fair this weekend.  We were surprised to find out there no special opening weekend admission offers. The offers that are available are clearly stated on the fair website.  We will more than likely be getting our tickets ant one of the super markets that are selling them.

8/30-For those going to the beach because it's hot, check the surf advisories.  All this week the news has been reporting on the dangerous currents and waves along the coast.

8/31-We haven't made it to the fair, but we sure soaked in some sun at a park yesterday.  It started cooling off around 2:00 pm with a light breeze.

9/1-Hello, September!  We hope it cools off some our yards need water.
