Best Baby Formula on the Market

by admin - May 7th, 2014

After some thorough research for an organic baby formula we have come to the conclusion that Baby’s Only Organic is truly the best formula for our daughter.

The formula contains:
Organic brown rice syrup
organic nonfat milk
organic high oleic sunflower and/or organic high oleic safflower oil
organic soybean oil
organic coconut oil
and a list of Vitamins
Organic Formula
Baby’s Only Organic does not use the toxic hexane method for DHA & ARA, which is a huge plus when compared to other baby formulas.

I have read on Amazon reviews that not every baby can tolerate the formula and for some it may give the baby gas, but this is the same for other formulas as well. We are fortunate that she loves it. I mean she “guzzles the milk down.”

I have been buying the formula from VitaCost where a 12.7 OZ can is around $10.

AirBnB valued at $10 Billion

by admin - March 20th, 2014

With new rounds of fund raising the valuation of Airbnb has climbed to $10 billion. Today Airbnb raised $400 million at a valuation of $10 billion for the shared living booking company.

With this valuation Airbnb is more valuable than some of the largest hotel groups in the industry such as the Wyndham Hotels and Resort.

Airbnb is one of the earliest to use technology to bring about the paradigm of shared consumption. Airbnb has allowed many people to rent out their extra living spaces and make some change or a large profit.

Much needed rain

by admin - February 26th, 2014

I am sure that you have heard about the serious drought issue facing California. Finally some relief is in sight as the next few days are expected to be the wettest this year. I am looking forward to spending that time cozying up and watching movies with my family.

As nice as it will be to have the rain showers hitting California over the next few days the drought in California is far from being solved and it will take a concerted effort by the government, residents, and businesses alike.
