      My cheese was moved last week. Missed posting to the Parenting theme. Great information with that one. I wish I had jumped into writing on a theme months ago. What a great learning experience for all hubbers. I know a little more on this one, so booking it for sometime this week. Maybe it will be on . . .

      In my haste, I did not hit the green answer button to start the new hub. I just went straight to "make a new Hub". Hope this is okay? If not, it was fun to write anyways.

      Oh, these are lovely! Besides, they kind of work within this week's theme, too. I mean, what "groceries" are greener than veggies grown in your own garden?

    As I had poked around an egg topic before, my interest in egg production methods was piqued, especially to find out if there were any nutrition/health impacts. The  Organic eggs vs free-range and cage-free alternatives hub answer was the result of my curiosity.

    I was so happy to find out I had 4 guest comments on my new weekly hubs but had to deny them all as they just did it to get backlinks! Never happened on my hubs before - always had true comments not just for the sake of links sad

      That's a bummer, but it's good that you deleted them. It's important to not reinforce that kind of behavior, heheh!

        Ya I returned from a boring day at University to check my stats and stuff and found that! I guess it was from the same person or I could say I'm sure as they were linking to the same blog. He/She did it on all three of my weekly hubs as well as my other going green hub!
