My youngest daughter traded in her ballet shoes for a karate belt at the ripe age of 4. This daughter is my tomboy and had no desire to spin or float around like a butterfly. She either found it ridiculous or it made her cry. I was happy to take the karate route with her, I'm a huge fan of Tae-Keon-Do, as it built great strength and confidence in her. So instead of a recital theres a big demonstration where this school performs at a local street fair. This is high energy stuff showing forms, gymnastics, board breaking and weapons. My daughter loves the weapons, she's been twirling nun-chucks since she was 5 years old and has advanced through much gear since then. Now she's on the advanced sword team and her up-coming demonstration has her slicing through various vegetables mid-air. I'd like to insert some cheesy joke about how she should be doing this stuff for dinner preparation, but this child of mine does not like vegetables. Which is another reason she'll be amazing when it comes to demolishing them in front of a large crowd of people.

May is National BBQ month. She is researching the best gas grill to purchase, being that they can be pricey (www.weber.com). Hi-bachi's and basic wire grills are also popular. There are those who are fortunate enough to grill all year long; their grill upkeep is easier than those who are reigniting the old flame that has not been lit for those long winter months. So the big question: Gas or charcoal? After that is determined, what will she cook?
- 76 percent of Americans prefer cooking outdoors.
