October may be winding down, but finding a cure for breast cancer is always at the forefront of our minds. With this being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pink products to share — and proceeds from all of them help support the cause.

Turkeys are raised in Finland too – we don’t have antnihyg like Thanksgiving, but they are a popular Christmas choice for those you don’t like pork. I usually go with pork, but sometimes I have bought a turkey after Christmas since you can at times get them cheaply then. Might try your recipe next time. An off topic local turkey story: a little while ago a truck full of them run off road, the turkeys it had been transporting run for freedom and local firefighters spend hours running after them. And I just saw the news that many of those firefighters are now sick with campylobacter. The suspected reason is that they didn’t bother to clean their hands before eating their sandwiches on the scene, while catching turkeys before and after.And from pork you can get trichinosis. Sometimes I might consider going vegetarian, except you can also get all kinds of stuff from badly cleaned veggies, and besides I just like meat way too much (plus it’s a lot easier to have a well balanced meal with all the bits necessary for your health if you eat meat). Besides, when it comes to animals, I presumably have at least one thing one catches from cats, toxoplasmosis, because I have had cats most of my life. (I like dogs as much as I like cats, but have been mostly working jobs where giving a dog the needed exercise would have been at times difficult, cats are a bit easier with that).
