2/25/2015 GIVEAWAY: One World Family Calendar

I recently picked up two of these handy “family calendars” with the intent of gifting one. Plus, I wanted to support the organization behind it. The One World Family Calendar features beautiful photography of people from around the world, along with space for daily schedules for up to five people. It’s a beautiful calendar that will help you plan the rest of your family’s year.

2/28/2015 Hard to look away, isn’t it?



This adorable little Jane’s portrait, artfully rendered, sends our brains reeling—what’s her story?

The gaudy floral hat and bright face paint belie the wistfulness of her eyes—what’s going on in there?

As it turns out, your interpretation of her facial expression may be linked to the books you read.

Curious? Read on … http://bit.ly/1LWtINr

3/1/2015 Winter is certainly blustering its way around the country lately, leaving its mark in some surprising places (snow in Jackson, Mississippi??) and refusing to succumb to spring’s advances just yet.

But that makes today the perfect day to share a tidbit of literary wonder called “The Snowdrop” by Hans Christian Andersen. This classic little tale chronicles the emergence of a brave flower that simply cannot wait for spring.

I’ll tell you more on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1ECYSY1

While you may not turn into Pinocchio every time you tell a lie, savvy sleuths may be able to tell you’re not being honest by merely observing your nose. What do you look for? I’ll tell you on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/18FEoSE

3/9/2015 In keeping with the proverbial madness of the March hare (which, by the way, refers to the phenomenon of bunnies acting bonkers during their spring breeding season) I thought it would be fun to quiz you on a few obscure names for animal babes. Take a gander at the list of names and try to match each name to the young animal it refers to.

The quiz is on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1Mnskn6

3/11/2015 Sunday, March 8, was International Women’s Day, helping to kick off Women’s History Month in March. Women’s Day has been celebrated in America since 1909 and in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland since 1911. In 1975, the United Nations finally declared it an international holiday.

Companies and organizations around the world and the web are celebrating women, and here are a few of the sites I thought you’d enjoy … http://bit.ly/1HD5p4I

3/12/2015 (MBA Jane) Bread Making Merit Badge, Beginner Level

For this week’s Farm Kitchen/Bread Making Beginner Level Merit Badge, I first had to learn the difference between two very simple, yet very ingenious, common kitchen ingredients: baking soda and baking powder. Hey, they’re not just for brushing your teeth and scrubbing your cutting boards anymore, peeps.

I’m blushing to admit that A) I have never really learned the difference, and B) I have mixed them up more than once. And just a friendly helpful hint from me to you: baking powder does not a Red Devil Cake make … http://bit.ly/1EDcOTc

3/18/2015 One of the signs of spring here at the farm is our rushing river. Merely a meandering creek the rest of the year, in springtime, the little creek fills with water and rushes through the farm. Even though we barely got a sprinkling of snow this year, the creek is still rushing—a reassuring sound that all is right in my world.
And that made me think of a wonderful documentary film I saw a few years back about Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy. Andy’s known for an art form he calls “site-specific sculpture.” It’s all about nature … http://bit.ly/1xygA8Q

3/19/2015 GIVEAWAY: MaryJane’s Ideabook

This copy of my first book, MaryJane’s Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook: For the Farmgirl in All of Us, was in one of our B&B wall tents and ended up with a sun-faded cover. But its insides are like new, and as every farmgirl knows, it’s never good to judge a book by its cover. Better to judge it from some of its online reviews, like this one from Laurie … http://bit.ly/1O9JmHh

3/21/2015 I recently discovered a trailer for an amazing-looking documentary about origami, Between the Folds. I’ve watched a few minutes of it and plan to watch the whole thing the next time I have an hour to spare. In the meantime, I thought I’d share it with you. This isn’t your normal YouTube video about folding paper cranes, and in case you’re wondering if origami can capture your attention for a whole hour, here’s your chance.

The trailer and a link to the full documentary on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1FRTUr5

Here’s a nugget of geographical trivia that proves romance can be found in the most unexpected places.

First, think of places where people speak French … France, sure. Canada. Parts of Africa. The far-flung Polynesian islands? No denying the romance there. But I’ll bet you didn’t include Old Mines, Missouri.

It’s true. Check out the sign beside the door in the photo on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1BGLGvj
