Saturday - Some Public Service Information:
Good morning - It's a rainy day here in Georgia and I mean rainy!
I read this in a magazine and this was a quote from Dr. Oz - "Get more sleep. An extra 30 minutes if rest a night can help you drop pounds."
I think I can try to do that. That would be easy!
And this is from Angela at West Virginia's Treasures - she received this from her Rite Aid Store.
"Dear Rite Aid Customer,
We are writing to inform you that Novartis Consumer Health, Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots of select bottle sizes of Excedrin® and NoDoz® products with expiry dates of December 20, 2014 or earlier, as well as Bufferin® and Gas-X Prevention® products with expiry dates of December 20, 2013 or earlier, in the United States.
We are taking this action as a precautionary measure, because the products may contain stray tablets, capsules, or caplets from other products, or contain broken or chipped tablets.

"Can You Guess What McDonald’s Food Item This Is?
Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made – things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.
Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve — bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.
There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.
But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?"
I did go to Snopes and checked this out - it is both true and false. Yes - there is such a thing as mechanically made meat. But no - since 2003 McDonald's has not been serving it. It is serving all white meat chicken. I put it on here because I thought it was interesting and to remind or tell you to check out how your meat is made - some places still use it.
Okay I'm feeling like a dooms dayer here - but I have one more question - I see the new blog application where you can write a reply. But why does it take you to the bottom of the page to comment before you even read the post? Then you have to go all the way back up? Grumble grumble. And a question - when the blog owner writes a reply does it stay there or is it sent back to the commenter?
Now tell me - do you go back and read the reply? Honestly?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY -
