Here’s my checklist of 12 parenting tips which will hopefully make that daunting task of parenting a little bit easier. Read more

Aaron Steiner was interviewed about his book Myth: The Origin of Man on FM KYRS; have a listen at www.kyrs.org. Myth presents a new angle on Creation; this clever novel tells the “how and why” of human ancestry as it reflects the dynamics between the first humans and the reptilian race from the star system Sirius B who created them … the Anunaki. The well-researched tale of how mankind could have come into being makes for an exhilarating read. Did we come from apes, space visitors … or both?
