I AM WISHING EVERYBODY TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY!!!!!! lol
My DS is an Optician. As an eye care professional he may err on the side of caution, but that’s better than not caring at all. ;)
Asti Yes, Pink eye and conjuctivitis are the same thing. ;)
We in the US seem to overdo the “antibacterial” soaps, cleansers and wipes. the result is that the resistant strains get a better foothold and sometimes run rampant.
If you kill all of the bacteria, including the helpful ones, but not the resistant ones, you give the resistant bacteria a much better chance of growing and causing problems. The regular bacteria on your skin tends to crowd out and suppress the resistant strains, which grow slower.
When the faster growing strains are gone, the slow growing ones prosper. And cause a whole lot more damage than the faster growing ones. So go easy on the “antibacterial” stuff.
I have only one bottle of antibacterial liquid hand soap in the house and it is only used after handling raw meats. I do have the wipes to use on the kitchen and bathroom counters, but I do not use them for regular spills and splatters, just after raw meats and during illnesses. ;)
Yes, Mother recovered, but it was a very inconvenient year for her, Dad and my sister and her family. My sister missed a lot of work that year due to my mother’s lack of health. ;)
Deanie, I’d heard before that you should go easy on the antibacterial stuff, but the explanation I’d been given was that you could build up a tolerance to it and then it wouldn’t be as effective. Your explanation makes much more sense! Thanks!
I got my information way back in 1997(?) from my Discover magazine way before the antibacterial stuff was as common as it is now. They tend to report things that later become more or less mainstream science. And they put it in easy to read language with clear pictures and illustrations.
You can get as many bacteria off your hands in cold water without soap, if you scrub vigorously for 30 seconds, as wih the antibacterial soaps. And the vigorous scrubbing removes the resistant strains, too.
So warm water and regular soap just with less scrubbing does not remove as many of the bacteria. Regular soap does however help get rid of dirt that may not come off in cold water or without soap.
Soap for dirt, scrub for bacteria! ;)
Jen, how is your eye today, are the drops helping?
Huff, here conjuncivitis is just treated as a mild irritant. I don’t think we’d even go to the doctor unless it was really bad.
Deanie, that info is interesting. Mostly common sense, but it’s easy to go over the top, and think you can avoid all bacteria. Another danger is people believe anti – bac stuff is magic, and actually take less care with hygiene!
Good Morning Everybody!!!! A Happy Thursday to ALL!!!!
WOW we are going to have 66 degrees here today and almost 70 degrees tomorrow!!!!! I was not to supprised that Tim & Paige ended up in the bottom 3 last night, but I did think that it would be Tim Urban that would go home before Paige did. One just never knows who America will vote off!!!
I AM WISHING EVERYBODY TO HAVE A TERRIFIC DAY!!!!
I have a bit of my own work to do today, a few phone calls to make and then a bunch of stuff to help out my supervisor. ;)
Josephine Please come help clean my house. There will be no cleaning for you after today, at least notuntil Monday! ;)
Oh wait, we can’t clean my house, I haven’t rented the BobCat yet. ;)
My own work and the phone calls took much longer than I anticipated. So none of my supervisors stuff got done. ;)
Bbl or bbt. ;)
Good Morning Everybody!!!! IT’S FRIDAY!!!! IT’S FRIDAY!!! IT’S RAINING CATS AND DOGS!!!!! HAPPY WET FRIDAY TO ALL!!!!!!
Why do people keep voting for May when they have already announced that the opening for HP Theme Park will be 18 JUNE 2010??? Yesterday we had 70 degrees here today they said it is going to drop down to 40 degrees and a possibility of snow flakes mixed with MORE RAIN!!!!! this is when I wish I LIVE IN THE BAHAMMA’S!!! FOR REAL!!! I AM WISHING EVERYBODY TO HAVE A SPECTACULAR WEEKEND!!!!! lol
Asti, the drops definitely helped; my eye’s almost back to normal. :)
We’ve got rain here too, which is making it very difficult to get up and get motivated. But, I have to; there’s lots to do today. Writing a paper this morning, babysitting this afternoon, and going to a dinner event at school this evening – they’ll be announcing my scholarship there. :)
Another day in paradise! I wanna be home, sleeping!! ;)
I have a day full of phone calls ahead of me. Yuck!! ;)
Deanie, it sounds like you’ve had a tough week. I hope your weekend more than makes up for it.
Josephine, nice to see you!
Jen that sounds like a fun evening! I’m glad you get to celebrate your scholarship. Have a fab evening.
I’ve been cleaning out kitchen cupboards all day. I get these fits occasionally……..it’ll pass soon!
I have a very busy day ahead; there’s so much due tomorrow. Actually, looking at my calendar, it appears that pretty much the whole next month is going to be hectic. I guess this is why this semester seemed easier at first – everything’s been crammed into the last part! Still, it’s gone by very quickly. My last major project is due exactly one month from today, and then I’ll be back to play for the summer! ;)
Goodness, the last time I was here it was page 11 for days. Now I understand why there were two more pages. It seems l learned more here than the other place. Don’t know why. Maybe because I can see the post all at once. I just came by to see if Jen had posted anything and found all of you.
Won So glad you are recovering so quickly.
Next week on the Apprentince, hey are going to be doing sonething Harry Potter. It should be interesting. Lol
My supervisor is off today, I wish I was. Oh well, I’ll be taking a week at the end of April. ;)
Off to try to be productive. ;)
Hello all! Thought I’d check in while I’m at work.
CoolG, that sounds interesting – be sure to tell us what they do!
Jen, I hope all the work goes smoothly for the rest of term. Did you have a good evening out?
CoolG, I have been trying to be better at checking in here; I know Jen finds it easier to post here, and I’ve missed her!
Deanie, we’re having a few days away in Somerset in two weeks time. I’m looking forward to a little holiday. Are you going away, or resting at home?
I have posted a picture elsewhere of my daughter after her ballet performance.
We are staying home and taking care of a few things. The dog is due for his annual check up and he needs his teeth cleaned. We need to go by the Social Security office to check on a few things fo my DS. We will probably start looking in earnest for my next car. And we want to take a couple of day-trips to nearby attractions.
It will be a busy week. ;)
Busy, but relaxing as well hopefully, as you are based at home. Though the dog might not find it relaxing!
You’re right, Deanie, no real cleaning after the past Thursday, just a touch up here and there. Since kiddies are on Spring Break, I am taking it easy and doing some very welcome lying in. Lots of leftovers help feed them too. LOL
Hi back at ya Asti. Raising a glass to you and I relaxing at home.
Deathly hallows in 3D?!? Oh my achy eyes! I might end up just watching the 2D version.
It’s fine I guess if I only have a less hard time adjusting to the darker screen which always looks fuzzy whenever I wear those 3D glasses.
That’s my HP reference today.
Good Morning Everybody!!! A Happy Tuesday to ALL!!! They are calling for some shower activity this morning, then it is suppose to clear up!!!! Thank goodness!!! tomorrow 68 degrees and the Sun will be shinning!!! For those who do not know, I have a Settlement date on my house tomorrow at 11am, It is likely that I will not be able to post here gain until 5 April, by then I also hope to have been hooked up finally at home also!!!!!!! lol I hope everybody has a FANTASTIC DAY AND WEEKEND!!!! lol
Congratulations Mistic Willow!! I hope all goes smoothly! ;)
The family reunion is on the north side of Atlanta this year. It saves us a bunch of travel time and leave time. We will stay in the hotel instead of trying to commute. That’s the end of June. ;)
Josephine, Is that anything like “Freak Out”? or is it more closely related to le pout and such things? ;)
Outta here for the day! ;)
Mistic Willow, that is such good news! I’m so pleased the wait is almost over for you, and you’ll soon be in your own home. Will you post and let us know when it is all finally over, and the house is yours? Congratulations!!
well it has been said in the news that it will be opening in april so guess what i picked lol
