Aug. 17, 2010 -- Eggs are behind a nationwide salmonella outbreak that caused hundreds of illnesses each week in June and July. The nationwide egg recall involves more than a dozen major brands that got eggs from Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa. CDC and state investigators in California, Colorado, and Minnesota found clusters of salmonella food poisoning among people who ate eggs at the same restaurants. Those restaurants got eggs that came from Wright County Egg. Investigations continue in Arizona, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas. According to a CDC spokeswoman, the outbreak is "pretty much nationwide."

Might be too soon in your babies lives to ask you this, but I have read that the Dugger's would welcome child number 20!! If you could afford it, would you continue to have babies? I'm guessing there reality show is affording them these blessings, but when is enough, enough? How do you share yourself with all these children and make them each feel loved? I catch that show once in a while, and it looks like to me the older ones are raising the younger ones. I guess that's how it has to be! Your thoughts?View Thread

Thought a poll would be fun, maybe spark some chatter too! Celebrities have been naming their offspring odd names for years and years. Frank Zappa has a child named Moon Unit and for the life of me I cannot remember if it's a boy or a girl! And more recently Gwen Stefani has a child named Zuma Nesta Rock, (sounds like a soft drink) again don't ask me the sex of the child! But what do you all think of these baby names? Something you could do? Have you named your son or daughter something different? What are your thoughts?View Thread
It has slowed down, makes me sad too! Maybe we should do a lunch time poll or something to bring back the chatter! Let me think of one and get that up today! An after lunch time poll I should say. View Thread
