One of my favorite comfort foods is ice cream and after yesterday’s nervewracking smackdown with Mother Nature it’s probably a good thing we didn’t have any in the freezer (we did have Mike’s Hard Lime, though…). The pimp daddies of ice cream, Ben and Jerry, double dog dare you to come up with a new ice cream flavah through their Do Us a Flavor contest. They are inviting ice cream afficianados to enter their best frozen concoctions by July 31. My favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor is Cherry Garcia. Visit their website for the scoop. Heh heh…get it? Scoop… uh, sorry.

On a serious note, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled Magnetix toys due to choking dangers. I blogged about this earlier and an anonymous mom who started a site in memory of Kenny Sweet, Jr., who died last year after swallowing magnets in the toy, alerted me to the recall.

I discovered Secret Agent Josephine through my bloggy friend Charla’s blogroll. I don’t know a lot of bloggers IRL (in real life), so I’ve found many cool blogs through blogrolls. Any way, you must go look at Secret Agent Josephine’s Baby Bug decked out in her mermaid costume. She’s the cutest thing I’ve seen all week.

Here’s a very inspiring story on You Tube (OK… I have to admit I started laughing watching this…you just have to see it) about a two-legged dog named Faith that was featured on Montel. She does not let her disability hinder her in any way.

So there you have it: ice cream, a major toy recall, an adorable baby mermaid, and inspiration in the form of a two-legged dog, the fabulous Faith.

    Cherry garcia was my favorite until I discovered Karamel Sutra and Chocolate Therapy. Now I just rotate between the three when I’m being bad. that is.

    My son has been asking for magnetix toys for his birthday in June. Thanks so MUCH for this info. I probably would have missed it!

    How could you choose Cherry Garcia over Phish Food and Fossil Fuel? Tsk. I used to be a Ben & Jerry’s fiend, but once Blue Belle started selling stuff here, I sort of changed my allegience. I’m currently a Publix lowfat frogurt girl, but some BB Birthday Cake ice cream sure would be nice.

    Mmm, chocolate.

    Thanks for the recall info! I have filled out the form to get rid of those little things! I had put them away to keep them away from C., but now I can have them replaced with something he can play with!

    Blogging gives you everything. Friends. Spas. Information. And a reason not to bathe yourself.
