Makeover show danger

Watched the Discovery Channel Show, Rally 'Round the House ( Yesterday, 5pm-6pm Pacific, June 5, 2004). The couple whose backyard was made over had two toddling infants and wanted a more 'child-friendly' garden, but were apparently clueless, and so were the people who did the show & makeover. I wasn't paying close attention at first, and didn't get the couple's surname, then I saw that the new landscaping was going to be heavy on azaleas, every part of which is deadly poison. I watched the rest of the show carefully, trying to get more information so that I could warn them, but they didn't give the owners' last name. They live in Woodland Hills, California, which is in my local calling zone, but I'm pretty sure my 3 attempts at getting the Woodland Hills F.D. non-emergency # (prob. past hours, anyway, as it was when I tried my city's) were outsourced to INDIA by Comcast (as so much is), and kept getting goofed up. I thought I'd try the 'Net. ...By the end of the show, the kids had been toddling all over the construction site among dangerous rubble, holes, toxic materials & power tools, and the finished yard featured a unguarded & coverless oddly-shaped pool and fire pit, a drowning-friendly water feature, and all sorts of climb-and-go- splat hardscape. If you know these people, please give them a clue about CHILD SAFETY. (Adult safety, too: Doin' things the OSHA-nightmare way!) They sure' didn't get it from the 'experts' at Discovery Channel.
DEAR BOARD LEADERS: PLEASE DON"T OBJECT IF I COPY AND REPOST THIS. I JUST WANT THOSE LITTLE ONES TO BE SAFE. PEACE Greenway 1 Timothy 4:10

When was the last time you heard of someone being poisoned by an azalea? They are one of the most popular shrubs sold in my area and are everywhere in parts of the south. Disney uses them at many of their Florida resorts. Chill out.
