Mercer County just announced that it's annual 4-H Fair will take place this Saturday (July 31st) from 10am- 8pm & this Sunday (August 1st) from 10am- 4pm.

The 4-H fair will take place at Howell Living History Farm in Hopewell Township New Jersey and will feature lots of fun for the entire family. Admission and parking are free to this event and there is so much to do. There will hayrides, animal shows, exhibits, homemade ice cream and more.

Exhibits will be from 4-H members, but there are still spots open for others. If you're interested in submitting any projects, like arts and crafts, photography and more, Altaira Bejgrowicz at the Mercer County 4-H Office can help. She can be reached at 609-989-6830 or bejgrowicz@njaes.rutgers.edu.

Being that parking and admission is free, Rutgers Against Hunger would like you to bring a non-perishable food donation. I think it's pretty easy to go through your pantry and see what you can donate.

We want to take my son to some aquariums and zoos and see how he reacts when he sees different ones. The problem is, in the summertime we like to spend a lot of time down the shore because there are only so many weekends in the summer, so maybe in the fall we'll get to some farms and stuff. I can't wait to see how he reacts.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
