Amsterdam: Land of a Thousand Bicycles Family / Huffington Post

Amsterdam is a city of almost 800,000 inhabitants, and 600,000 bicycles. Bicycles are stacked along the sides of canals, outside restaurants, historic buildings, at the docks for the canal “taxis” and tethered to the sides of the 2,500 houseboats.

Zombie Moms: Losing Sleep Over Kids at Any Age Family / Huffington Post

The huge on-line success of the book Go the F**k to Sleep is due mainly to one thing: Every single parent in the world has uttered these words, either in their inside or outside voice.
