Tonight we take an honest look at holiday shopping. We explore the demands of the this time of year and take a proactive ook at choices that reflect the true spirit of the holiday season and the impact our choices have in our communities and in the world. We discuss companies that are not simply about the bottom line but are really making a difference. We read some wonderful and informative articles from our friends at wakeup-world.

Not all of us may be political activists or even weekend environmentalists. Many of us don't have the time to be as involved as we might like, however, when it comes down to that moment of spreading cream, cleanser or brightener onto our bodies, into our mouths or onto the tender skin of our children, more and more of us are realizing that companies might not be as interested in our health as they are in their bottom line.
Gratefully we welcome the rebirth of the home "maker"
The art of apothecary is making a strong comeback and group gatherings that support bartering of these goods are also helping to support local economies and environments.
Tonight we talk about the wonderful consequences of this trend toward awareness in the home.

“To victims of terrorism whose innocence was ripped out of them with the unseeing heartlessness of bomb shrapnel.”
A Mangled Marathon takes reports of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings a step beyond the terrorist blasts that killed three persons and injured more than 260.
It reports on the legal defense of the prime suspect, how victims are coping and the broader social implications of the bombings.
In a note to the reader, the author writes, “Although this book focuses on the April 15, 2013 bombings at the Boston Marathon, its victims and the prosecution of the prime suspect, it is equally about “lone wolf” terrorists. Lone wolves refer to terrorists who plot their attacks alone, usually with no organization to support them and no official links to violent groups. There is almost no way to know their next target until they strike. U.S. intelligence agencies call them perhaps the biggest terrorist threat to the United States and its allies.”
“But before the race was over, few people cared who won or lost. Boston’s Patriots Day, a day of festivities to celebrate the American Revolution, was about to become the latest nightmare in America’s ongoing war on terrorism…”
“The pungent smell of gunpowder hung in the air while shrapnel, ball bearings and nails littered the streets near the blast sites. Spectators left behind backpacks, cell phones and handmade signs with runners’ names. Doctors at Brigham and Women’s Hospital later treated one patient whose body had been pierced by 12 carpenter’s nails.”
A Mangled Marathon was written by veteran journalist and Washington, D.C., lawyer Tom Ramstack. He has reported on court cases for much of his three decades career as a journalist as well as defended a few criminal defendants.
My guest on Thursday, April 10th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be silversmith Randy Stromsoe, maker of handmade silver jewelry and tableware.
About: A classically trained silversmith, Randy Stromsoe handcrafts what will be the sterling silver heirlooms of our future. Stromsoe works in a variety of styles which include sterling silver and pewter in the Arts and Crafts period of his master, the late Porter Blanchard, as well as his own unique contempory designs in gold, silver, pewter, copper and wood. His body of work spans 4 decades and is highly sought after by corporate and private collectors worldwide.
"My studio is an homage to a generation of craftsmen and an era when fine silver was a part of everyday life. The traditional dining table has changed with time and the number of trained silversmiths has dwindled. Whether I am creating a contemporary pewter tea pot or a traditional sterling silver flatware place setting, I continue to draw upon the stories, instruction, memories, and the unique skills that have been passed down from the generations of silversmiths before me."

Next week my guests will be my dear friends BeLinda Creech and her wonderful daughter Cee Cee, now famous for her Elephants Remember Joplin campaign.
Eleven year old Cee Cee Creech started her journey with elephants as a little girl with a big vision. In 2011, at the age of eight, she became aware of the disaster that was unfolding in Joplin in the aftermath of a devastating tornado, and she was sure that she could do something to help. She started knitting elephants for the children impacted by the tornado, while people caught her enthusiasm and spurred her on by donating money to the Red Cross for each elephant she brought to life. Since then, Cee Cee has been featured in 6 national publications, was a runner up for the Hearthsong Heroes award, and was the 2013 Jay Buckey Humanitarian Award recipient. She has also been interviewed on numerous radio programs, and even managed to get an elephant to NBC’s Brian Williams as a reminder about the needs remaining in Joplin. With the support and encouragement of her mother, BeLinda, and much of the knitting community at large, Cee Cee has continued to give to others through the simple gift of creating things with yarn. Cee Cee has raised over $12,000 and donated more than 1450 handmade toys for a variety of charities. Currently, Cee Cee is working with Ty Pennington (formerly of ABC’s “Extreme Home Makeover”) on his Pencils of Promise fundraiser, with the goal of building schools in Guatemala, and her “Elephants for Guatemala” campaign has a new herd in the making.
I hope you’ll all join me next week for what should be a wonderful and heartwarming show.
