      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Once again I cannot click through the slide show of photos in the article and clicking on view all doesn't work either- But I just wanted to stress how important it is to rinse off your face often, especially around the eyes and nose- Facial hair and skin holds a lot of pollen- Even your ears- I use olive oil for this, but if you apply moisturizer to your face put a little extra around the nostrils and on the eyebrows- It helps to keep some pollen out of your eyes and going up into your nose- Also changing the pillowcase often can help some too- We are surrounded by trees, some of which are conifers that release tons of pollen- Neti pot use helps too .. it's been forever since I have used meds to address the symptoms of seasonal allergy and I couldn't be happier, I don't miss the jittery-ish-ness side effects ..
