Die Mommy Die: Women talking about babies in workplace, from ELLE

Interesting piece about women waxing rhapsodic about motherhood at the office and how it affects non-moms and moms who don't necessarily think motherhood is the beginning and end of the world. My two cents on second page and nice mention of OBHF:

By Nancy Hass

Arranging the interview took months of patient pleading with the CEO’s staff, and now that I’ve been waiting for almost an hour in the chief’s vast beige and teak inner office, one thought keeps running through my head: She better be as brilliant as everyone says.

Ten minutes later, the CEO walks through the door, smoothing her pantsuit and flashing a purposefully desperate smile. “I’m so sorry to have kept you waiting,” she says, plopping down in the sleek armchair next to me as I reach out to shake her hand, “but my nine-year-old had a bad night because of a test today—throwing up and everything—and she just called in to say she thinks she aced it. Everything is so dramatic with that one; all her stress goes right to her stomach.”

I try to cut her off with a tight grin, barely enough to pass as polite. I don’t like where this is going.

Having a garden is quite essential part of the routine life.
Some additional considerations that will affect
your business are the weather and the climate you
are in. This is left longer than the fairway and can sometimes
be mown into first and second cuts set at increasing
heights.

For instance, if you'll be giving away souvenirs
to corporate clients, you would want to choose a drive that's not flashy with loud colors.

Home Depot's largest store is located in Anaheim, California.
A customer over-heard the employees talking about the cuts, and
got so offended that she decided to return everything she just purchased,
and left the store.
