Tickets for Nutcracker in Toronto Until January 2, 2011

December 22nd, 2010

It’s not too late to see the Nutcracker in Toronto at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Performances go throughout the holidays until January 2, 2011.  Probably perfect for kids aged 4 and up, though dids as young as 3 years old will enjoy the spectacle. (Note: It is a little long for really young ones.  Still, I took my very high-spirited 3 year old daughter – read, she doesn’t like to sit still – and we nearly made it to the end.)

Best Availability December 28 – January 2. Some tickets still available for December 22 – 24.

Detox Footpads

December 19th, 2010

Detox Footpads are the latest craze for the cleansing crowd. Less icky than a colonic and less dangerous than, say, ear candling, the detox footpad is just that – a pad that you stick on the bottom of your feet at night. The pads claim to draw out toxins while you sleep.  Through the bottom of your feet. Sound too good to be true? Natch.
