Frankly, I'd like to wish you a "preventive Christmas" or a "proactive Christmas," to lower the startling statistics about mental health care increasing 35% to 40% during January and early February. Usual causes include the high maintenance of the season, the empty chair at Christmas, or expectations not quite matching up with reality. Will there be less spending this Christmas? Will the mortgage mess*, layoffs, and future unknowns dictate our discretionary income for a while? Our plastic cards are maxed out. Can we even afford Christmas anymore?

"When's the baby due?" That's the big question for those expecting. With my fourth child, I was four days overdue and felt like calling the whole thing off. I fretted non-stop.

RealAge.com, an excellent source on natural ways to keep yourself feeling younger and healthier, offers some practical information about using honey to subdue those winter maladies. Try a couple of teaspoonfuls in a cup of ginger root tea; the two combined are wonderful for warding off some common seasonal ailments. The honey is great for soothing a scratchy throat, and the tea fights colds, as well as nausea and tummy aches. Also, honey and lemon juice make a good scratchy-throat soother as well. I take it straight or stir them into my tea. [Of course, no honey for little ones under age 1!]
