Spring/Summer season is the perfect time to wear a pair of Toms. They are fashionable and more importantly allows you to “Make a Difference” at the same time.

Mrs. Obama is set to appear Tuesday May 29th on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “The View,” and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” She’ll also tape an interview for “LIVE! with Kelly” while in New York on Wednesday, May 30th and an appearance on the “Rachael Ray Show” is set to air Thursday, May 31st.
“All author proceeds will go to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks,” said the First Lady’s Office. “Funds will be used for programs that promote gardening and healthy eating and give young people the opportunity to experience the outdoors and lead more active lives, as well as for the continued care of the White House Kitchen Garden.”
“In this book, I share my experiences starting a garden at the White House, and I offer tips on how to start your own garden, whether in a few pots on your windowsill, or out in your backyard,” Mrs. Obama says.
“You’ll also hear the stories of people in every corner of our country, who are using gardens to feed their families and communities, to educate our children and to build a healthier future for the next generation. I hope that you’ll be as inspired by these stories as I was.”

At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass. The refill contained the antidote.
I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade… And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.
I live in New York and it’s the greatest city, but sometimes I want to move to the place with the porch and the lemonade and the farm.
