Well, Vabooms and Maggies nail polish has worn off for they had to go out and SHOVEL Snow and Ice again! They are going back to Jollies Herbals for a new manicure. BTW, they ALL decided to match and went with pink (including Runcus!) After a visit to Jollies, everyone feels so much better! A little beauty goes a long way. Today drawing is the “after” image.Unfortunately nail polish can be a big bad nasty for our health. Do you know many nail polishes contain Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP (Phthalates which is called a plasticizer.) Luckily, there are plenty of other options out there without those “nasties” in them. This web site has a nice list: http://www.thechicecologist.com/2010/03/nail-polish/

Did you noticed the French theme the last week? Vaboom is pleased to have a new international friend. It is such a nice way to learn words, culture and views of life. Environmental words are the most exciting to her. She giggles for all she knows now is “Jacques Cousteau.” She looked up “Environmental” to see what the French would be and she found “du milieu; de l’environnement, écologiste.” She likes the sound of “écologiste” – so that will be her word of the week, and our topic in general this week. Her New French Friend will be visiting Botaniums soon, and you too will get to meet him!
In admiration of Ecoology Week it was voted that Wessie (Wes) would be the spokesman for this topic this week.
As you may remember –“ Wes soars high above the lands and sea to keep an eye both the Botaniumus citizens as well as the “others” i.e. the WoMes (us humans.) Wes’s job is Liaison of Botaniums and WoMes.To keep the “green lifestyle” active for both sides and incorporate great ideas from one to the other.
