Welcome to Dandelion Songs!

"We are two mothers who want our children to know what childhood was like. Before Nintendos, before computers. Before fear of freedom. What it was like for us, and for our mothers, and their mothers. We want them to know adventure, to know play, to know the world. And not the controlled, organised world that modern mothers seem to think they are tied to, but the real, natural world that is here on our doorstep. Come and join us on an adventure in childhood."

Let it snow!

What to do with children on days like this...?

1. Wrap them up warm
2. Double up on socks and gloves
3. Open up the door
4. Go GO GO!

My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using sustainable green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Warmest wishes to two of my favorite Irish ladies-- full of strength, beauty, creativity, heart.

In my perfect world, I'm wisked away for a moment this night... across an ocean. Walking, rushing down a frosty cobble-- a chill wind at one side, and a breath of cheer at thother. Bundled in woolens, the first is from the Winter, thother from warm hearts... brushing elbows.

Thinking warm thoughts of you both... sending them on to you. Wishing you well.
