        The best line I have heard about the China porduct recalls is from Laura Ingram. Some of you may already know it, but it was new to me:

        China's latest toy shipped for Christmas:

        "Poison Me Elmo".

        I love it.

          Be careful of "One Use Only" Toothpaste from China. One use and you'll be at the emergency room getting pumped and flushed out.

          As for workboots, please try hard to buy USA made products. As to just which boot is best, that depends on your feet and needs. What works for one person may not for another.
