Magic Eraser – Danger for Children

If you have young children, please do not let them use the Magic Eraser Sponge. My friend over a Kerflop has posted a story about what happened to her young son after wiping his face with one of these sponges.

“If I had known that both brands (and others like them) contain a harmful alkaline or “base” chemical (opposite of acid on the pH scale) that can burn your skin, I never would have let my little boy handle them. As you can see from the picture, when the Scotchbrite Easy Eraser was rubbed against his face and chin, he received severe chemical burns.”

Please see the whole post here: http://kerflop.com/2006/11/02/chemical-burn/

I hope that this post can save someone else the problems this child has had.

Pumpkin Anyone?

Well I saw this cool Pumpkin cake on the front cover of this months Family Circle magazine. So I thought how hard could it be to make it? Well it is alot harder than I thought, plus it helps if you have the right Bundt pans (mine were too flat and wide).

So without keeping you in suspense any further here it is, don’t laugh please…

Happy Halloween to all…..

Do you recall your younger days before the Internet, when MP3’s and DVD’s were not invented yet?

Pac-Man, Pong and Donkey Kong were games you liked to play. “Who shot J.R.?” and “Where’s the beef?” were questions of the day.

Cellular phones the size of bricks helped some communicate. Actresses with fitness tapes helped chunky folks lose weight.

Designer jeans and mullets were considered cool and sporty. If you remember all these things….

You must be turning FORTY!!!!

Have a great day!
