07/16/19 03:13 AM Remains of actor found in remote area by Ratch

The remains of an actor, Charles Levin, were found in a remote area in Oregon. I don’t know the area, but it sounds like his car got stuck or broke down....his remains were found a distance from the car. Sorry to say, the first thing I thought of was, “Do I have my car kit up to date?”

BTW, one of his roles was the mohel in the Bris episode of Seinfeld,

Things are starting to look bleak for those in the Big Easy. Tropical Storm Barry could be raining on them for 4-5 days.

07/09/19 05:34 AM How do you update your first aid kit? by Bingley

What approach do you take to updating your first aid kit? I checked my kits, and all the small packets of over-the-counter meds have expired. There are also some items that have no expiration date, which makes me suspicious. The antibiotic cream doesn't have an expiration date? That doesn't seem right?

Also, I keep a kit in my car, and it gets really hot in there in the summer. I'd think meds have a shorter life.

Buying individually packaged pills is pricey for what you get. I wonder whether it might not be better just to buy a new kit. So do you "refill" your kit, or do you just, at some point, settle for a new one?

07/04/19 07:19 PM Cell phone will (likely) not save you... by teacher

One of the things that I have to tell folks going out on an adventure is that their phone may - or may not - help.

Because you need most of these things :
1. Is it on?
2. Do you have power?
3. Do you have coverage?
4. Do you know where you are?
5. is it dry/working/up to date?
6. Do you know how to access and use its features?
