Hey! I saw your photo on the Charlotte Observer's website in the article about the new Trader Joe's. I guess you must be excited to have a location closer to you now. I think the uptown location is going to be more convenient for me too since I'll be in that area more often than Rea Rd.
Yay TJ's!

I love White Chestnut!! :-D

I ought to start a thread about Bach Flower remedies. They are an all natural "mother's helper"! (and therapist and stress reliever, and sanity saver in one.)

Welcome! I'm thinking we met. But, I don't recall your son. Yes, I do. You all came to the luncheon here!

You live up in the northern part of the city, right? There is a new north Charlotte Group. Check the menu tab at the top of the page. They are forming playgroups, park days, and hoping to locate somewhere to have holistic presentations.

Glad you are here!

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
