Forum: Favorite brand of toothpaste?

I really like Young Living's Thieves line of Dentarome toothpaste. There's also a good spearmint (I think) from Kiss My Face.

Both of these have 0 fluoride in them. Just google "dangers of fluoride!" Scary stuff!

Forum: Opposites Attract or Birds of a Common Flock?

I like what Elissa said - when the differences balance, relationships stay super healthy, but if they don't balance and completely clash, that can get dangerous!

My boyfriend and I are opposites personality-wise. If anybody is familiar with the color personalities, I'm a Yellow-Blue and he's a Red-Green. Total opposites! The yellow says I'm more of the humanitarian: I'll do anything for people and I'm motivated by anything that's a good cause. I'm easy going and might get my feelings hurt, but I'd rather my feelings get hurt than anybody else's. The blue says I'm also motivated by enjoying whatever it is I'm supposed to be doing and I also like to laugh A. LOT.

The red in my boyfriend says that he's a strong-willed leader and isn't afraid to hurt other people's feelings if it means that he's doing the right thing and getting the job done. His green side means he's a natural skeptic and needs to see the facts/research before he believes what you're saying.

If you're interested in learning more about the personality colors, here's the link to take the test yourself! I was introduced to this for my newfound entrepreneurship - so this can help understand how people are simply wired differently for personal and professional relationships and it really comes in handy!

Forum: Travel plans?

What are your travel plans, James?

Last year was a big year for traveling, so this is going to be my off year/saving up for travels later!

I am planning to accompany the family I do respite care for their little one on their family vacation which will probably be to Canada for the second year in a row!

Last year I went to Texas, Utah, and Canada. I'm hoping to go back to Texas again soon (since that's my home state) and go to an International Convention again in Utah next year as well!

Safe travels to everyone!

Subject: Re: Why Are You Watching the Olympics? Why not?

Forum: Why Are You Watching the Olympics? Why not?

This is a really great post - you make great points about the history of the Olympics that I hadn't really thought much about before.

I love watching the Olympics, but I don't carve time out to watch it or make sure I tune in when certain events are on.

I love watching figure skating and curling. I've always marveled at how fluidly those skaters move and have never been great at ice skating or roller skating myself. As for curling, when I moved up north, I joined my college curling team and it was so much fun! Strategy in that game is everything and something that I continue to learn every time I watch a game.

I also appreciate the phenomenal way that Olympics brings people from all over the world together, and I, too, think it is sad that after the Olympics we go back to business as usual, allowing tensions to rise because of our differences rather than focusing on how our strengths can complement and unify one another.

Forum: What is something cool about where you are from?
Nice forum!

I'm from New Braunfels, TX - home of Schlitterbahn - an amazing waterpark, and it's also a little german town near San Antonio, so people from every ethnicity get to celebrate by drinking beer and eating the "wurst" at Wurstfest!

We also have Wassailfest, which takes place downtown before Christmas and the downtown district gets to compete by making wassail and all the Wassailfest-goers get to vote on whose wassail was the best!
