Close your eyes and listen
To the rhythms filling our forests and cities.
To the melodies of our seas and skies.
To the harmonies that greet each new dawn
and lull us to sleep each night.
Close your eyes and listen.
To the sounds and songs of life.
This is Wild Music.

Wild Music is a remarkable exhibition celebrating every note of every player in the symphony of life.  Jam with a whale.  Talk like a tiger.  Or sing like a songbird.  Visitors will learn the music of nature, and the very nature of music. N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences is hosting this new exhibit called Wild Music until September 16, 2007.  It is for all ages and features a special, interactive exhibit that explores the biological origins of music and how music is inspired by the music of other living creatures. To learn more about the exhibit read the article at the following link.

Fisher-Price, in cooperation with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission is voluntarily recalling 967,000 toys, including popular Nickelodeon and Sesame Street painted toys  – Big Bird, Elmo, Dora, and Diego – produced by one specific contract manufacturer during a narrow timeframe.   The recalled products were sold in retail stores nationwide since May 1, 2007.   Paint on some of these products COULD contain lead in excess of permissible levels.  

Lead is toxic if ingested and can cause adverse health effects.
