The Vaccine / Autism question has not been answered...

This link will take you to - to hear a 5 minute video clip.   The woman speaking is Dr. Bernadine Healy, former head of the NIH (Nat'l Institute of Health), and most recently head of the Red Cross. 

Click here to watch.

Dr. Healy is a very well respected mainstream doctor and leader in the medical community who has had the COURAGE to speak out against our government's health agencies' refusal to thoroughly study any links between vaccines and autism.

Her point in this clip is that there is most likely a group of children who are more susceptible to vaccine injury than the general population.   She believes (or rather, says that she knows) that government health officials won't study this subset of affected children, because they fear the vaccine program as a whole will suffer, when they can identify the susceptible group.

It's worth watching.

CUTEST card table playhouse!

Oh my goodness.... if my kids were a little younger, I'd put this on the grandmommy wish-list in a heartbeat!

It's custom made for whatever sized card-table you have - with your house number and child(s)' name.   That little mailbox opens and the house comes with 4 felt letters to put in!

It also comes with 6 removable velcro apples you can "pick" from the tree, and a removable watering can, to water the flowers.

You can even choose the colors!!

Okay, I know it's $75.... but I think that's a steal, considering how much use I'm guessing this would get.   Check out her store on Etsy - she also has all kinds of variations on this - a garage, ballet studio, beauty shop, post office.... seriously - what if you had her make one for the dining room table?   I'd get in there in a heartbeat.   Just sayin'.

Cutest.  Idea.  Ever.
