They have all been cautioned not to communicate with strangers or give out any personal info. There is a block for inappropriate sites and they are really comfortable when telling me about something that they think is iffy or objectionable.

My little girl is only allowed to use the internet and my ipod when I'm sitting with her, watching what she does. (She's still pretty young and occasionally needs help with simple tasks).

Our computer is located in the middle of the living room. Every other computer (laptop, ipad, etc) is password protected with a changing password to get onto the internet that they must ask for.

We work on not sharing personal info and how to safely search. (We've got search engines pretty tightly locked.)
When they start having social media accounts then I will be monitoring them, and I will want access/passwords to everything.
Christine Mondy said…
we have set parental controls on the computer and also only allow usage in a common area of our apartment.

I would love to own this DVD
Laurie Nykaza said…
The computer is where we can keep an eye on everything so the kids know to not give out info and go only on certain sites
Teaching them not to give out personal information, don't always trust what people tell you on the net. We also filter\block certain websites
Safety rules and training prior to access.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
