2/16-2/17/2012 Hitch Itch Has Set In

It’s official! Hitch itch has set in big time. We just can’t take this weather much more. Rain and clouds and it just seems never ending. The forecast for the next four days is rain.

Speaking of hitch itch, Bob has our route planned out. I told you a little while back that he was working on it. Well, turns out he must be reading my mind because the places I wanted to go, but we hadn’t talked about, are the cities he’s plotted for our trip east. I can’t wait to get to some of these places! We’re not visiting new states but new cities in those states. It’s going to be quite the journey with lots of sights to see in each state.

I got something in email the other day that really brought something forth that I had no idea about. I think its important enough to share it here. I hope that if it isn’t circulating in your email list then you’ll copy and paste this and get it started.

Here it is:

Dr. Oz had a show on the fastest growing cancer in women,
thyroid cancer. It was a very interesting program and he mentioned that the increase could possibly be related to the use of dental x-rays and mammograms.

He demonstrated that on the apron the dentist puts on you for your dental x-rays there is a little flap that can be lifted up and wrapped
around your neck. Many dentists don't bother to use it. Also, there is
something called a "thyroid guard" for use during mammograms.

By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram the other day. I felt a bit silly, but I asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one in a drawer. I asked why it wasn't routinely used. Answer: "I don't know. You have to ask for it." Well, if I hadn't seen the show, how would I have known to ask?

We need to pass this on to our daughters, nieces, mothers and all our
female friends and husbands tell your wives.

Isn’t email a wonderful thing?
