Opening Day is Almost Here! MLB Baseball!

You know spring is just around the corner when pitchers and catchers report to spring training in February. And you know summer is almost here when opening day is imminent! This year, baseball's opening day is a little earlier than's April Fool's Day, April 1! But there's no joking that this season is going to be great! (and I'm a Seattle Mariners fan, for chrissake!)

Here are some great opening day t-shirts and general baseball-love tees you can buy on the web. Click any design to ADD TO CART!

T-shirts to help Japan

Zazzle, the online print-on-demand company, is offering t-shirts to help the recovery in Japan. For every t-shirt sold, the designer's 10% commission is donated and matched by Zazzle, to the Japanese Red Cross. So 20% of the cost of every t-shirt is donated, if my calculations are correct. There are some beautiful ones.

Earthquake Preparedness Kits to Buy

ReadySetGo Kit $99

I've been researching emergency and earthquake preparedness kits online. There are a lot of them out there, and apparently, you need different ones for different locales. The most extensive one should be in your home, but you also need one for the office, and one for your car. Any kit you buy or put together should sustain you (and anyone else who might be with you) for at least three days. And remember, they aren't just for earthquakes, but also for tornadoes, hurricanes, severe storms and being stranded on the road.

Here are some that are available on (I apologize that the pictures aren't bigger, but just click on any one to learn more about what it contains). IMPORTANT! Read the contents of kit before you purchase. Some of them don't, for example, contain any food. You'll need to supplement any incomplete kits, so know what you're buying before you buy!

Make an Earthquake Preparedness Kit Today

The horrific events in Japan tonight have led me to the realization that I am completely unprepared for a major event. I live on the West Coast of the United States, where a huge earthquake could strike at any time. But no matter where you live you need to have an emergency preparedness kit ready. Now is the time to put it together!

Here is a list of what you should have on hand at all times, courtesy of
* Store water in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles. Avoid using containers that will decompose or break, such as milk cartons or glass bottles. A normally active person needs to drink at least two quarts of water each day. Hot environments and intense physical activity can double that amount. Children, nursing mothers, and ill people will need more.
* Store one gallon of water per person per day. Don't forget your pets.
* Keep at least a three-day supply of water per person (two quarts for drinking, two quarts for each person in your household for food preparation/sanitation).
* Change this water every six months. Household liquid bleach to kill microorganisms:

o Use only regular household liquid bleach that contains 5.25 percent sodium hypochlorite. Do not use scented bleaches, colorsafe bleaches or bleaches with added cleaners.
o Add 16 drops of bleach per gallon of water, stir and let stand for 30 minutes. If the water does not have a slight bleach odor, repeat the dosage and let stand another 15 minutes.
o The only agent used to treat water should be household liquid bleach. Other chemicals, such as iodine or water treatment products sold in camping or surplus stores that do not contain 5.25 percent sodium hypochlorite as the only active ingredient, are not recommended and should not be used.

* Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits, vegetables.
* Canned juices, milk, soup
* Sugar, salt, pepper
* High energy foods such as peanut butter, jelly, crackers, granola bars, trail mix; foods that will not increase thirst.
* Vitamins
* Foods for infants, elderly, persons with special dietary needs
* Comfort/stress foods: cookies, hard candy, sweetened cereals, lollipops, instant coffee, tea bags.
* Pet food, at least one ounce per animal pound per day.
* Avoid foods like rice, pasta and dry beans that require a great deal of water to prepare. Remember to restock your food once a year.


* Sterile adhesive bandages in assorted sizes
* Assorted sizes of safety pins
* Cleansing agent/soap
* Latex gloves (2 pairs)
* Sunscreen
* 2-inch sterile gauze pads (4-6)
* 4-inch sterile gauze pads (4-6)
* Triangular bandages (3)
* Non-prescription drugs such as Pain relievers, Anti-diarrhea medicines, Antacid, Syrup of Ipecac (used to induce vomiting with the advice of a Poison Control Center), Laxatives, Activated charcoal (used with advice from the Poison Control Center)
* Various roller bandages
* Scissors
* Tweezers
* Needle
* Moistened towelettes
* Antiseptic
* Thermometer
* Tongue blades (2)
* Tube of petroleum jelly or other lubricant


* Paper cups, plates, and plastic utensils
* Battery-operated radio and extra batteries
* Flashlight and extra batteries
* Cash or traveler's checks, in case banks are closed in the days following an earthquake
* Non-electric can opener or a utility knife
* Small fire extinguisher
* Pliers
* Tape
* Matches in a waterproof container
* Aluminum foil
* Plastic storage containers
* Signal flare
* Paper, pencil
* Needles, thread
* Medicine dropper
* Wrench, to turn off gas and water


* Toilet paper
* Soap, liquid detergent
* Feminine supplies
* Plastic garbage bags and ties
* Plastic bucket with tight lid
* Disinfectant
* Household chlorine bleach
* Poop bags and scooper for pet waste


* Sturdy shoes or work boots (keep near your bed)
* Rain gear
* Blankets or sleeping bags
* Warm clothing
* Sunglasses (keep your spare eyeglasses in the emergency kit, too.)


* Will, insurance policies, contracts deeds, stocks and bonds
* Passports, social security cards, immunization records
* Bank account numbers
* Credit card account numbers and companies
* Inventory of valuable household goods, important telephone numbers
* Family records (birth, marriage, death certificates)

**Remember to include special needs family members such as a baby or an older person might have. It is also good to store in a water proof plastic bag important family documents (passports, wills, medical records etc.) along with your earthquake survival kit.

T-shirts to Support Wisconsin Workers

Whether you live in Madison, Wisconsin or Madison Park in Seattle, you can show your support for the workers of Wisconsin -- who are really bellwethers for the workers of the nation. If the GOP's collective-bargaining busting bill stands, it sends a chilling effect to all working people of the United States. Unions, imperfect as they may be, are necessary to maintain the rights and safety of workers.
