Tattooed Moms

Did you know that 32 percent of Gen-X moms have tattoos? I learned that from my old buddies the authors of Marketing to the New Super Consumer: Mom & Kid. It's published by Paramount Books.

This pic comes from a fellow blogspot blog, "Tattoo Machine."

If you want to ponder who influences whom, go to Google Images and look how many kids have proudly uploaded "Mom's first tattoo" pictures.

Help! Author of Edgar & Ellen missing.

Chicago, IL September 10, 2008

The Missing Author department of Simon & Schuster has put out the call for help in locating the lost Edgar & Ellen author and the manuscript for his next book.

On the eve of the publication of, Hot Air, the kick-off book in Edgar & Ellen's second series, Charles Ogden has disappeared leaving nothing but a small scrap of paper with two odd words (it's reproduced in the back of the book along with the publisher's urgent plea).

Where is he? Will the second manuscript ever be found? Is there evil afoot or does the name of the new series eerily portend a long and arduous voyage?

The second Edgar & Ellen book series is called "The Nodyssey."

Intrepid sleuths may want to check

Good trick for picky eaters

Billy Carton says he gets his children to eat everything from salmon to brussels sprouts by cutting foods small and impaling the pieces on those cocktail toothpicks with colorful frou-frou on the ends.


It adds color, kid-sizes, eating ritual, and provides a weapon (er, toy).

Add it to your kid food innovation armory.
