This year two children’s advocate groups in the U.S. have released an annual warning on toys to watch out for well shopping for the holiday season.Out a group of 200 toys the most dangerous ones are the ones that include magnets or ones that are toxic. The reason they are so dangerous is because of children choking on them. There has been 400 hundred children die between 1990-2010 from toy related injuries and over half are from choking alone. Some reasons choking is so high is because children and teenagers try to use the magnets as temporary piercing’s and end up swallowing them and as they swallow another they will stick together and will become stuck in there intestines.Witch will cause you to a gastrointestinal problems that can lead to death. One of the types of magnet gifts is Buckyballs and that is a set of 200 shiny balls the are magnets. So you shouldn’t even buy them for older kids and anyway they won’t be able to keep track of 200 magnets any way. Also they have stopped making Buckyballs says there site. But these are not meant to scare people it is meant to warn them so there children do not end up in the hospital. Some tips: Make sure there are no small pieces that small children can choke on. Stay away from magnets. You should also beware of cheaply made toys lager toys that can break into smaller pieces. This is important because kids are dying from this. Also this can leave serious injuries!

Well as most of you may know it is almost remembrance day and this year I will be in the colour party for our school for the second year in a row. I took some pictures of the memorial last year but I thought I should share the because I really like them and scene it was almost remembrance day I thought would share them. These were taken of the memorial out of the senior centre. Also here is a poem by John McCrae written in 1915 he was from Guelph Ontario. The poem is called In Flanders fields.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
