Hello Thursday

apollina baker

Good morning everyone!  I have been a bit swamped this week with work and extracurriculars.  I'm sorry I haven't had much opportunity to say hi.  How are you all doing? Getting ready for holiday travels and the partying that is sure to take place this weekend?  I have a very busy weekend coming up but busy weekends are always more enjoyable than busy weeks.  The weather has been lovely and the holiday spirit is in the air...

I love my Pinterest feeds, they always make me happy... here are my favorite images today from my favorite Pinners...

Fact of the day:  The first 10 amendments to the Constitution – what we know as the Bill of Rights – were ratified 222 years ago today.

Irony of the day: Your toothpaste contains the WARNING:  “Do not swallow,” and “in case of accidental ingestion, contact the poison control center immediately.”  However, there is no warning on our water and each 8oz. glass contains a quarter of a milligram of industrial-grade fluoride, the same amount found in the serving of toothpaste that the FDA warns should not be swallowed by children. (more info here) In fact, we are told to drink eight 8oz. glasses of water a day, that is 8 times the amount that the toothpaste tube warns is poisonous if ingested.  Hmmm... Something doesn't make sense.

Every state in the US has fluoride in their water, most states have over 50% of the population consuming it. Here in DC, 100% of the population on public water supply systems receives fluoridated water.
