A few days ago, the skies were a beautiful mix of crimson, orange and dark red with gentle swirls of white and blue mixed in.
I took a few photos around dusk just as the sun was setting below the horizon.
My wife and I were out at one of our favorite restaurants a few days ago and saw the moon was shining brightly through the haze of another oncoming cold front. I took a few photos and my wife took a few as well. I like her perspective the best.
This is an update to a previous recall on a ViperSheath Sheath Introducer. It’s now reclassified as a Class 1 recall, which is as serious as it gets.
A ViperSheath Sheath Introducer is a “long-coiled, reinforced, kink-resistant catheter-like tube (sheath) that helps a physician insert a catheter into a blood vessel.” The problem is that every once in awhile this ViperSheath Sheath Introducer might just fracture once it is in place. And that would be all kinds of bad. Because then “patients may need unplanned surgery to remove the fragments or to control bleeding. Since this device is coil reinforced, any separation of the cannula (a flexible tube inserted into the body) has the potential to expose portions of the coil, creating the potential for vessel dissection or perforation.”
So if you have Lot ranges S28117 through S29174 and catalog numbers VPR-ISH 5 X 85, VPR-ISH 6 X 85, VPR-ISH 7 X 85, VPR-ISH 5 X 45, VPR-ISH 6 X 45, and/or VPR-ISH 7 X 45 you need to chunk ’em ASAP.
A few weeks ago, a cold front was moving into the area. It dropped the temperatures around here to a pleasant 50 something degrees (10 degrees Celsius) for a short while.
This new cold front we just got in actually dropped the temperature down to the low 40s (4.4 Celsius). That’s pretty impressive! It’s actually going to get in the mid thirties tonight. But, of course, tomorrow we’re going back up to the 70s (around 21.1 Celsius).
If you’re drinking a Slim-Fast, drop it right now and go get yourself a McRib.
The US Department of Defense Military Health System (An unusual recall source, but it’s valid!) just announced that “the maker of Slim-Fast meal replacement shakes has issued a voluntary recall of Slim-Fast Ready-to-Drink products sold in cans due to a possible contamination that may result in diarrhea and possibly nausea and/or vomiting.”
A McRib never did either of those things to me. Just sayin’.
The recall states that the affected products are “…packaged in paperboard cartons and contain four, six or 12 steel cans that are 11 FL OZ (325 mL) each. Individual cans are also sold in certain retail outlets. The recall involves all Slim-Fast RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number. No other Slim-Fast products are affected by this recall.”
