Sunflower isn't sweet flower, no scent and just plain stickly and tall. Its sunny yellow flowers will greet you brightly once in full bloom. Sunflowers are known to be very useful, stalks can be made to paper, leaves for dyes, sunflower oils and seeds. This one though is just plain sweet, don't be mistaken as it is all made of sugar, that's what it is!

Just when you thought you couldn't get any greener, it just got greener! New bulbs? Appliances? Or maybe new Eco-friendly clothes? Not this time. This time you can go greener with your wine! And it's not actually a bad idea. Earth-friendly wines are going to hit the market like no other wine has before, by enabling wines to be sustainable. It may even be healthier than ordinary traditionally processed wines. And if its healthier, then maybe this is something all wine producers should start thinking about. Maybe this is something that starts with consumers, because when there is demand there is without a doubt, a market.
Wine.com recently wrote a very comprehensive article about wines going green. As I mentioned before, sustainability is a key factor in determining if something is green or not. Through environmental stewardship, economic profitability and social and economic equity can one produce a wine that is green. No synthetic materials, fungicides or pesticides are things that green wines have in common. Although this idea of green wines is a new movement, I believe that one day, green wines will have an important place in future markets. Have a look at the provided info-graphic from wine.com below to see how green wines come to life.

I appreciate the guest post, Lindsay Valdez
My mom was telling me about a new show that was coming on tv called “Touch.” It is about a dad and his son who is autistic and how they communicate. A lot of the boy’s communication is based on numbers. I teach special education and have several students who are autistic. My mom thought that I would be interested in the show since I might be able to relate to some of the challenges. It sounded interested to me, so I searched CableTVAdvisor to find out what time and channel the show was coming on. I found the schedule for the show and set my dvr to record it. Sometimes I do not like to watch tv shows about any type of special education students. It either reminds me too much of work, or it is so farfetched from reality that I know they did not do any research. I think I will give this show a shot though. It might surprise me and be a really good show that is actually accurate.

Wine is made of fermented fruit juice mixed with alcohol. One most common fruit used for wine making is grapes. Grapes has special components which makes the fermentation process achieve great results. Different varieties of grapes make different flavors also depending on the aging process.
Wines are also great used in cooking like the usual white and red wines for Italian dishes. Pasta and other meats get such distinct taste when added and cooked with wine. The deep complex flavor heightens the intensity of flavor of the dish. Not to worry about the alcohol content of the wine because as it cooks off, the alcohol simply evaporates.

My sisters and I love going to concerts. We mostly go to country concerts, but we really enjoy any concert regardless of what type of music it is. We used to have to call and order our tickets over the phone and then go pick them up at will call before the concert. It always made me a little nervous that for some reason our tickets would not be there when we got to the concert. We also hated waiting in line at will call to get our tickets. The last few times we went to a concert, we ordered the tickets online. It is so much faster to order the tickets and we can see exactly where our seats are going to be. Once we order the tickets, they email the confirmation to us and we can go ahead and print out the tickets. It is so nice to have the tickets in hand and not have to wait in the will call line. I am so glad that we have Euless Broadband Internet so we can order our concert tickets online.
