Ramblings about nothing, except contaminated toys from China and Toronto sports teams trading for damaged goods…

First off a shout out to Josh-O – hubby of the talented Ms. Haley-O of Cheaty Monkey fame, whom I continue to brush off for coffee because of vacations, work, volunteer commitments, sports and other events. Josh was trying to explain to me why their “loud” floral couch was sitting on their front lawn for the past few days… I walk by their house from home to the subway and the subway to home, when the elevator rudely shut on our conversation… I guess this mean I am going to have to pony up for a Starbucks to hear the rest of the story.

In stupid Toronto Maple Leafs news, it would appear that the Maple Leafs traded for a player named Mark Bell who is going to jail after the season for 6 months – yikes… I think its time for front office overhaul. John Ferguson Jr is clearly not trying to make this team better. Bell, I predict will be out of this league within 3 years.

This move looks and smell like the Toronto Blue Jays signing of Mike Sirotka. Anyone care to disagree???

Toronto teams cannot continue trading for damaged goods.

Fucking Toys!

Fucking toys from China containing lead and other shit…

Would anyone have cared if the Canadian authorities not turned up this information? The Chinese company would have just continued shipping their toys to our children – who would have played with these toys, and once the paint chipped, played with it still, and been exposed to a potentially harmful contaminant. So what does the president of this toy company do once he and his company’s name have been exposed??? Hangs himself in the boardroom of his company… Coward.

Does this not send a STRONG message to us parents??? Buy locally! Buy wood toys. Buy smarter.

    I am so with you on the lead paint thing, sick of big companies selling out our children’s safety to the lowest bidder. thankfully in this latest recall we only had one item-the little Dora figures we bought to put on our 2 year olds bday cake! wtf? ugh. The Thomas wooden trains really pissed me off though, we had a number of those flippin’ expensive little buggers on the recall list, and again I had used some of them on my son’s birthday cake.
    2 lessons, no toys on cakes, and buy smarter-I like the buy locally idea, thanks
