Food shortages? Check.
Rising gas prices? Check.
Rising food prices? Check.
Killer earthquakes? Check.
Housing Armageddon? Check.

Jeesh, I’ve been trying so hard to come across positive the last few weeks, and the world is NOT cooperating. Just this afternoon I received an alert that The Children’s Place is recalling 28,000 pajamas because the artwork on the front of the shirt contains LEAD. Let’s not even talk about kids’ jewelry.
But it’s the recall of beloved tomatoes that seems to have everyone’s attention at the moment. After all, it’s the one vegetable/fruit that Americans actually eat regularly.
