Kids Love For Animals

Kids Love For Animals ( Poem )

Children’s favorite shows are of animals

I have hours in a playlist that are laughable

Like a camera pecking rooster and fun monkeys

To a mom and a baby miniature donkeys

Videos of wild turkeys and charming geese

Ducks in water and chicks learning to speak

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds

Some you would not want to move towards

A large unique animal is the alligator

The total opposite of the…

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Create designer Christmas tree

From squash, to bread, and fun cookies

Instructions made so easily

One from red hat society

Home from the heart season theme

Star wars made a holiday scene

Wonderland can be of little lambs

Making ornaments with your hands

Whatever your style or budget

Your personal touch can be tropic

Focal point of your home can be

Inspired by glamorous jewelry

We…

Tractor Pulls ( Poem )

America’s passion tractor haul

Ford and Farmall want to take it all

Showcasing your tractor is never dull

Case give a strong performance call

See a smokey John Deere tractor

Unleash yourself in an Oliver

Massey Ferguson speeds uncovered

As International pulls with no effort

White’s power with high tractive force

As McCormick is running the course

Agricultural machinery Competition

Fun family oriented…

Woodsmen Day

Woodsmen Day ( Poem)

Sport using handsaws

With a toothed edge blade

One or two handed sawing

On a woodsmen fair day

Traditional log rolling

Is a lumberjacks technique

Style used in river driving

The illustration is unique

Springboard tree is branchless

With live action you can’t beat

Platform board is dangerous

A risk if you compete

Block ax chopping

Is a loggers sport indeed

Hard on your back swinging

Be…

Pesticides in Kids Linked to ADHD

Researcher advises parents to buy organic, wash produce
By JoNel Aleccia, health writer, msnbc.com, May 17, 2010 Exposure to pesticides used on common kid-friendly foods — including frozen blueberries, fresh strawberries and celery — appears to boost the chances that children will be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, new research shows.
