Inhumane Conditions In The Slaughterhouse Since 1993?? They Told Us California Cows Were Happy Cows!!

Posted by infinitygoods on February 19, 2008

With this week-end’s meat recall, 143 million pounds of beef, the largest Lick by imagegrabber in Flickr public filesrecall in history, comes an even more disturbing possibility. A video has surfaced that shows inhumane conditions may have occurred since 1993. That’s 15 years!! Did the government do anything to safeguard that consumers eat healthy food? Did the greedy big business slaughterhouse have the least thought about the public school children who would eat tainted meat? Are California cows happy cows as the advertising slogan claims? You decide.

Check out Tad Cronn’s article and look at the video he posted.

Halloween Safety Tips

Posted by infinitygoods on October 29, 2007

  • Be sure to clear your front yard and steps of any trip hazards.
  • Remove anything which can hurt someone, be damaged or stolen, such as ladders, extension cords, flower pots and containers, bicycles, children’s toys, garden hoses, etc.
  • Clear walkways of leaves and other slip hazards.
  • Be sure to turn on as many outdoor lights as possible.
  • If using candles in your jack-o-lanterns, be sure to leave enough space at the top for the candle to burn safely and make sure decorations cannot blow into the candles’ flames.
  • There are now many styles of inexpensive battery-powered lights to use inside jack-o-lanterns, even styles which flicker. You can also use a small string of outdoor, stay-cool Christmas lights, and you can also use glow sticks, which come in several colors such as green, orange, yellow, pink, etc.
  • Make sure your electrical extensions or outlets are not overloaded.
  • Keep all pets safely inside. Both animals and children can get spooked by each other.
  • Be particularly vigilant about keeping cats indoors and safe from any possible escapes, even a few days before Halloween, as weirdos, cult members and miscellaneous crazies enjoy hurting our dear kitties even more around this time of year.
  • Check all candy before your children eat it.

Infinity Goods Wishes You and Yours a Safe and Happy Halloween!! 😉

WFMW — Life-Saving Tip for Children in Cars

Posted by infinitygoods on October 23, 2007

Brand new mommies have lots of worries and concerns when their children are born. One of mine was that our son would remove his car seatbelt without my knowledge as soon as he was old enough to do so. Lots of children do.

I thought about what I could possibly do or say to keep him safe, and I remembered something my mom had once told me that my grandfather would do long before seat belts were even invented.

My grandfather would tell his five children that if things became rowdy in the back seat, the car could not drive. At the first child’s misbehavior, he would pull the car over and the car would not drive until the children quieted down. After one or two trips to the side of the road, my grandfather quickly found himself with a carload of quiet, well-behaved children who were helping the car to drive.

I told our son the same thing, adding the fastened seatbelt clause. I started him from babyhood. He tested the theory a couple of times by acting up or complaining that the seatbelt was not comfortable, but the car immediately pulled to the side of the road and refused to start until all was quiet again. By the time he was old enough to understand that the seatbelt did not have any effect whatsoever on the car, he was fully trained and used to his seatbelt. As a matter of fact, by that time he had become quite vigilant about mandatory seatbelts for everyone at all times, commenting on people who do not wear their seatbelts.

I never was more thankful I had done that all these years than when my worry became a real life nightmare and perpetual agony for our son’s swim coach. While returning home from a camping trip with her 10 children, she had a car accident. The coach and nine of the children were wearing seatbelts and were not hurt. The youngest child, my son’s age, on his swim team and a schoolmate, had taken off her seatbelt, apparently to sleep more comfortably. She flew through the van’s windshield, spent a short time at the children’s hospital with severe brain damage and other injuries, and is now a little angel in heaven.

So please make sure your children are wearing their seatbelts. Be a good role model to them by wearing yours as well, and I hope that my tip will help you to keep children and future children safe. This tip really does work, so please for life’s sake, spread the word.
