Good morning. Wow, I think today the temperature is going to hit 60. The nights still drop down to the very low 40's so it's not quite feeling like Spring yet. The sun is shining so it looks like it might be really nice today.
Do any of you get the Reader's Digest magazine? It's a little thinner than it used to be, but it is still a very interesting magazine. The April issue had an article that could be very useful for folks who travel by airplane. It listed eight things that you should never do on a plane. I found these three most interesting.
Close The Air Vent. Doctors recommend opening the overhead air vent and setting it on low to medium in order to keep germs from lingering in your personal space.
Order Tea Or Coffee. The water used to brew hot drinks comes from an onboard tank, and it's not the most pristine part of the plane. A report found that 12 percent of airplanes carried water that tested positive for coliform, an indicator that other harmful bacteria could be present. (I drink bottled water)
Touch That Tray. Your seat-back tray is by far the most bacteria loaded surface on the plane. A study found that trays harbor an average of 2,155 colony forming units of bacteria per square inch, compared to 265 units on the lavatory flush button. Keep your food on your plate.
Ouch! That part about the tray was something I never thought about! I don't put food on that tray anyway, but now I'll be even more careful.
The sun has gone behind some clouds so I guess this is going to be another lazy day for me. I found this adorable cartoon on the web, and I thought "Gosh! This is me!" haha
The mailman just brought the mail and the new issue of Reader's Digest. Guess what I'll be doing today? On that happy note, I'll take my leave now. So till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
