Since I already have chemical issues due to foods that send me to the hospital with analeptic shock; this is my basic gripe!

I rarely get spam in my Gmail account.  I use a different email for when I order online so that keeps Gmail clean for me.

Just discovered this at the bottom of the page that comes up on the Forum Link:
Users active in past 60 minutes:
wjoan, JaneS, jane, Sasha, Shirley, alpiner1, Cottoncandy, Google (4)

Why is Google listed as a user at all?

Also saw a list of Recent posts on which anyone can see who posted and where.  That's an invasion of privacy, IMO!

Google and sometimes Yahoo will show up on the list shown. They do that for their search programs.

Does that mean someone has done a Google search or that Google is doing the searching for itself?
I'd also seen Yahoo mentioned at another time.

Its part of its mapping system so if someone Googled Senior & Friends, it would be up to date.Yahoo search is the same.

wJoan:  Every minute of the day, there is someone on earth trying to get into our information.  There is a special place for them.....

angel:  There seems to be a lot more reporting of food products that have been mishandled.  I always think of the time both Don and I became sick at same moment after eating at a fish place.  We didn't report it - felt too weak to even make the call.  We even had different meals but something was very wrong.  A lot of the problems go right to the required safety procedure and then just WHO are they hiring plus what is the training.

Carol, there was an article in the emagazine of CookingLight and another one in the emagazine Domino talking about the issue, how it is already the most substantial number of outbreaks seen in years and how widespread rather than localized it is.  Both articles stated that these attacks were not expected to go back to previous levels.

The latest, affecting milk products, Ritz and Goldfish brands among others is due to whey, a milk product added to many different food products in production. The Romaine was traced to an irrigation ditch in Arizona that fed many different fields in that area of the state. No one knows how it got into the canal or from where. Sometimes it is on the machinery.

I have seen some places close here through the years after they've been written up and the health reports and inspections have been publicized. It always seems to be a fast food franchise or one of those cafeteria places.

I was sickened many years ago after eating at a cafe in Nenana, ironically called Moms. There were several people hospitalized, and it was traced back to a dish of mayonnaise in a stainless steel server, left out and not placed in ice. The cafe closed and they had to pay for everyone's hospitalization.

Another time, my daughter at six or seven months was hospitalized with two other babies as the babysitter only had one soft baby spoon which she used for all. It turned out that one of the babies had a severe case of strep. That sitter lost her accreditation, license, several thousand dollars and finally her insurance. So it pays to be aware as a consumer and also as a business.

Angel:  Your story of your child becoming sick makes me furious.  It must have almost given you a heart attack and the poor darlings had to feel so poorly.

Today I'm griping about the "No-see-ems". Recent high humidity must have brought them out of hiding.  Bite, bite, bite   -   itch, itch, itch.

Did you try vinegar against the itch? Works wonders on jelly fish stings or mosquitoes bites.

I tried ammonia right on the bites. -- not too good.  I'll try vinegar the next time.

After washing the area with a mild antibacterial soap, apply a lubricating, alcohol-free moisturizer like CeraVe, Cetaphil, Vanicream, or Eucerin to your skin during the day and before bed. Apply cool, wet compresses to soothe the itch. Take a bath in lukewarm water and colloidal oatmeal or baking soda

We have tiny gnats called noseeums, different than the bugs further south and tiny new seasonal mosquitos as well as the larger mosquitos who hibernated through the winter by burrowing into the wood.

To whip up your own version, mix a small amount of water with baking soda to create a paste and apply topically to the bite. Rubbing an ice cube on the bite location can also provide temporary relief from the itch. Juice from a lemon or lime slice can also help calm the itch from a gnat or mosquito bite.
