You Can Go MAD This July 4th!!!

I hope you have an AMAZING 4th of July weekend. I was inspired today by reading USA today, they had a story on how you can Make A Difference this weekend. Here are some of the ideas:

-- Celebrate the 4th by sending a message of thanks to our troops defending our freedoms abroad. Visit the USO.org website to leave your message and be inspired by the other messages of thanks.

-- Or you can dedicate your celebration to the troops, encourages the folks at DoSomething.org. Take a moment of silence for them, or collect supplies for a DoSomething HeroBox to send to military currently serving.

-- Invite a neighbor or lonely relative to join in your 4th of July festivities this weekend. Or drop off a pie or freshly baked cookies to a neighbor or friend who might be stuck at home or the hospital due to an illness.

If you have some great ideas to add, that would be AWESOME!

About 4 million Bumbo Baby Seats are being recalled after nearly two dozen reports of infant skull fractures.

About 1 million of the molded foam seats were recalled in October 2007 for additional warning labels against placing the Bumbo seats on raised surfaces, such as tables or kitchen counters.

Since the first recall, CPSC and Bumbo International of South Africa have learned of at least 50 incidents in which babies fell from Bumbo seats while they were being used on raised surfaces. CPSC says another 34 babies fell from the seats while they were being used on the floor or at an unknown elevation. In all, there were 21 reports of skull fractures to infants.

Relax & Unplug

Unplug on your vacation and relax, really. TODAY 

 

Mention an unplugged vacation to most Americans, and their responses range from amusing to the wistful.
