101 YEAR OLD GETS TATTOO


It took Mimi Rosenthal 99 years to get the nerve up to get her first tattoo, but like any other habit, once you get started it’s tough to keep from going back to the well to get more. When she was 99, she got a dime-sized butterfly on one leg; at 100, she got a flower tattooed on her other leg. Now, at age 101, she got her third tattoo, a sunflower on her arm. And, if she lives long enough, she’s not done. It’s Seniors Gone Wild!

“It’s pretty,” said the world’s oldest tattooed woman of her new sunflower. As for her next tattoo location, Rosenthal joked, “Next time I’m getting it on my butt!” That’d be quite the challenge for Spring Hill, Florida, tattoo artist Michelle Gallo-Kohlas, who inked the elderly woman the three other times. “Her skin is so fragile, it’s like uncharted territory,” said the tattoo artist, whose most recent work on Rosenthal took a week longer than expected due to her fragile skin.

It’s like they always say, better late than never!
 

EGG RECALL INFORMATION

Voluntary Egg Recall Expanded: Less Than One Percent of All U.S. Eggs Affected

ALPHARETTA, GA (August 18, 2010 - 10:30 p.m. ET) -- Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa, is expanding its voluntary recall (original recall date: August 13, 2010) of specific Julian dates of shell eggs produced by their farms because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Eggs affected by the expanded recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers, foodservice companies and limited retail outlets in California, Arizona, Missouri, Minnesota, Texas, Georgia, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, Illinois, Utah, Nebraska, Arkansas, Wisconsin and Oklahoma. These companies distribute nationwide.

Eggs affected by the expanded recall announcement are packaged under the following brand names: Albertsons, Farm Fresh, James Farms, Glenview, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma, Lund, Kemps and Pacific Coast. Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, and loose eggs for institutional use and repackaging) with Julian dates ranging from 136 to 229 and plant numbers 1026, 1942 and 1946. Dates and codes can be found stamped on the end of the egg carton or printed on the case label. The plant number begins with the letter P and then the number. In most cases the Julian date follows the plant number, for example: P-1720 223. There have been confirmed Salmonella enteritidisillnesses relating to the shell eggs and traceback investigations are ongoing. Wright County Egg is fully cooperating with FDA’s investigation by undertaking this voluntary recall.

All brands, plant numbers and Julian dates are listed in the Brands Affected document found here.

While this recall represents less than 1 percent of all eggs produced in the US, as always recommended by the Egg Safety Center and FDA, raw eggs should be handled and cooked properly with the egg yolks and whites cooked firm. Other egg brands that are not specifically in the recall list are not affected and should be safe to eat. Liquid, frozen, or dried egg products, because they are pasteurized, also are not affected by the recall and should be safe.

Consumers are reminded that properly storing, handling and cooking eggs should help prevent food-borne illness. For more information on proper handling and preparation of eggs and answers to other frequently asked questions, visit www.eggsafety.org.

Eggs previously announced as affectedinclude the following brand names: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps. Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, and loose eggs for institutional use and repackaging) with Julian dates ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946. Additional brands specific to Northern and Central California and Reno, Nevada, include Bayview, Mountain Dairy, Nulaid, and Sun Valley. Affected plant numbers are 1091 (Julian date 167-174), 1686 (Julian date 142-149), and 1951 (Julian date 193-210).

The chance of an egg containing Salmonella Enteritidis is rare in the United States. Several years ago, it was estimated that 1 in 20,000 eggs might have been contaminated, which meant most consumers probably wouldn’t come in contact with such an egg but 1 time in 84 years. Since that time most U.S. egg farmers have been employing tougher food safety measures to help protect against food-borne illness. Chief among these methods are modern, sanitary housing systems; stringent rodent control and bio-security controls; inoculation against Salmonella Enteritidis; cleaning and sanitization of poultry houses and farms; and testing.

About the Egg Safety Center
The Egg Safety Center provides scientifically accurate information on food safety issues related to eggs. We work with egg producers to provide them with the most up to date information available and are dedicated to educating consumers on proper food handling to reduce the incidence of food-borne illness.

WORLD'S LARGEST BBQ GRILL

Jack Henriques, has built the world’s largest barbecue, dubbed “God-grilla”, it can simultaneously cook 7 lambs at a time (or 1,000 sausages!)

Created for Aldsworth Stone Barn in Gloucestershire, God-grilla can withstand over 600 deg c of heat. It weighs two tonnes, measures 16ft across and requires 14 bags of coal to ignite.

Mr Henriques has pledged to build an even larger unit in future and says the ‘’sky is the limit”. He told the Telegraph:

”When the barbecue is loaded up to full capacity at least three chefs are needed and it would be impossible to flip everything on your own,” he said.
