Thursday - did you know?
From More Magazine April 2011 Women 55 to 64 are LESS LIKELY to clean house daily than women in all other age groups, according to a recent survey. (And they feel less guilty about it, too). COUNT ME IN!!!!!!!!
Okay - Monday night when making dinner - I had a new slicer - and it was not it's fault it was mine - but I sliced off a good amount of skin on the top of my finger. On the tip was one little - small dot - that just would not stop bleeding. It seeped all night and all the next day. My daughter googled about stopping the bleeding - they said to take a tea bad (I used one with caffeine) - wet it - hold it two minutes - and the bleeding would stop. It hurt like heck. But guess what - the bleeding did stop - it like sealed it. I am fine now - just wanted to tell you this helpful secret I know is true, I am not sure why, but it did seal it.
Denise at Together We Save (coupons) suggested we take a test from Real Age to see how old we are - she was two years younger. I am still trying to get in Real Age - I had done it before and am already set up, but can't seem to get any password to work - so haven't taken it - but sounds really interesting.
Linda at Corgi Country and Angela at West Virginia's Treasures sent me this - and since most of us have pets - I thought you'd want to know.
WARNING!!!!! Walmart sells a rawhide like chew called Exer-Hide - this has been causing MAJOR seizures and death. This product is manufactured in Brazil. This has been happening since December . Please pass this info on! It is still on the shelves...
4PetsOnline has made an official report to the FDA about Exer-Hide Chews.
While on the FDA website, I also found the following pet products under recalls:
Digger’s Natural Chews – Pig Ear Pet Treats – Salmonella
PrimeTime, KC Beefhide – Pig Ears – Salmonella
Keys Manufacturing Company – Pig Ears for Pet Treats – Salmonella
PrimeTime brand – Premium Pig Ears – Salmonella
It really does seem that at the moment, you need to pay particular attention to the safety of the dog treats you are buying for your pets.

So just be careful what treats you give you dogs!
And another interesting blog was from Angela at West Virginia Treasures - on preparing and saving for an emergency. How to save up in case of an emergency!
