Keep chili on hand for chilly days

The recent chilly weather has given me a perfect excuse to break out all my soup, stew and chili recipes. For the record, I am a soup fanatic. I can eat soup with every meal all year round - I love it that much. However, my husband and children don't always feel the same way, and I believe that they'd like winter to end as soon as possible.

Parents, keep an eye on electronics

Q: Our 13-year-old son has had an iPod for the past 3 years. We've always made use of the parental restrictions to make sure that he could only access "clean" music, movies and websites. When I recently checked the device, however, I discovered that he's been listening to the most awful and explicit rap music, some of which I would describe as pornographic. Apparently, he's been able to hide this from us for about a year. We have taken away his iPod forever, grounded him until further notice, suspended his video-game privileges and banned violent video games ...
