U.S. FDA Warns ‘Dollar Tree’ Of Selling Possibly Unsafe Drugs & Cosmetics.

Wow. This is NOT good. Yes, we shop at ‘Dollar Tree’ — though NOT as much as we used to. I love the $1 junky toys & trinkets they sell — solar-powered holiday gizmos, colorful but cheap decorations for the yard, JAMAICAN beef jerk meat pies, reading glasses, sunglasses etc. etc. But, we don’t really buy and drugs, other than say hydrogen peroxide, 2% hydrocortisone cream and others of that ilk. Most of the ‘generics’ we buy are from Walmart, BUT this FDA warning appears to indicate that Walmart too might be jipping us.

Well, we all need to be on the lookout. This is not good. I am glad that the FDA is looking into this.

Now you know. Now we have been warned. All the best.

Google’s “This Site May Be Hacked” Warning Too ‘Pessimistic’!

by Anura Guruge


Click to access Google’s HELP page on dealing with this — from BOTH sides.

Getting an e-mail from Google (if you happened to be registered with them via ‘Google Webmaster Tools‘) that one of your sites may be hacked is akin to getting a very hard kick to your ‘goolies’

Well I got that kick in the goolies in mid-December. Google insisted that my semi-retired ‘Popes-and-Papacy‘ Website had been hacked! Wow.

They cited two pages with pornographic page names (i.e., URL addresses) — the names even more graphic than I, with my liberal views on such matters, would consider. But I could NOT find these supposed newly inserted pages! They were NOT there and from what I could see were NEVER there.

Basically it was (and I am trying to be nice) a ‘False Positive‘. Google claiming the site was hacked when it never was.

I checked and checked and checked again. Those two pages did NOT exist. Site had NOT been hacked. Site was clean. Site was good.

So I appealed using the prescribed procedures. A few days later Google confirmed that they too could not find the supposed hacked content — BECAUSE it was never there. It took about 3 weeks but eventually the ‘hacked’ warning was taken off against ‘Popes-and-Papacy’. That was a relief. Luckily I don’t do much on that Website these days. But this could have been devastating IF it had been on one of my active Websites or blogs.

So a heads up. IF you get this kick in the goolies IT may not be as bad as Google made it out to be.

We did get some snow overnight and it continued to snow, albeit in lightly, right through the morning. So we got a real White Christmas this year, though I am not sure whether we got 1″ of snow at the Concord Airport in order for all those “Free, if it snows on Christmas Day” offers to be valid. I will check.

Our yard, Christmas morning 2012, around 7:45 am. Compare with same view from Christmas eve — on prior post. Click to ENLARGE.

Different view. From the steps, looking straight out. It wasn’t that much snow. Yes, we put the Christmas lights on, heck with the electric bill — since we don’t pay the high PSNH rates.

Merry Christmas 2012.

Christmas 2012 In Alton, New Hampshire (NH): A Brown Christmas?

Click to ENLARGE. I just took these two, from the front steps, around 3:15 pm on Monday, December 24, 2012, i.e., Christmas Eve.

Click to ENLARGE. You can see the residual snow from the ‘storm’ a week ago, on Monday, December 17, 2012. These are what is left of the piles I shoveled off the drive. So we will have some snow for Christmas Day.

Per the local forecast, at best we will get some snow Christmas Day though it is not 100%. So we could wake up to a brown/green Christmas. That would be different.

I though we had a brown Christmas last year too. But, I just went and looked at pictures from December 2011. We had a big storm on December 23, 2011. I doubled checked my ‘1-line a day diary’. Says: ‘snow-shovel’. So we must have had snow.

Here is a picture from December 23, 2011. Same yard as in the first picture above.

The difference a year makes. I don’t remember this, but this is December 23, 2011. Same yard as in the above 2 pictures. The main difference is the snow. Click to ENLARGE.

Just to make sure that I wasn’t hallucinating, I did a Google on “December 23, 2011 snow storm New Hampshire“. Got some YouTube clips that explicitly mention December 23, 2011. So, we did get a respectable storm.

Merry Christmas.
