Stop Toxic Toys - Do Something Today! More than 20 million toys have been recalled over the last six months. "Sign the Moms Rising Petition for Safer Toys."

No matter what the age of that special someone is or whether that 'one' has four leg's and fur, please do your homework first and check out Consumer Affairs.org before buying that perfect gift. Its the kindest thing you can do, to protect the one's you love and for the one's you may never have the pleasure of meeting. Clothing, jewelry and cosmetics need to be equally scrutenized, along with TOYS and other items. Even foods that may be part of your traditional giving, also need to be checked first.

The Hams are on their way for Christmas... So be on the alert for not only trashy trinkets but also for trashy manufactured food. I think I'd rather eat safe soup, thank you anyway.
