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.
