Daisy and I volunteered to be patients for a disaster preparedness drill earlier this month at the Utah Air National Guard Base. There was an article from the Deseret News and a picture! We are picture number 10 on the slideshow.
They were going to have more volunteers but that didn't work out so we got to do several scenario runs. Daisy got to play a number of wounded individuals and she did a great job! We split up after the first couple and on her third stint she was in the red line with a crowd of people around her based on her "injuries". She said they took very good care of her and she felt like she was in capable hands. It was a fun learning experience in a safe setting and we'd be happy to volunteer again!

Avail yourself of the opportunity to move you mind with some of the available books just lying around: "Just a bit of lite afternoon reading..."
Now time for a siesta! A soft fuzzy blanket and a plush robe on the upholstered chair should provide enough for maximum snuggle value.

Toasted Pumpkin Loops from Sprouts and Pumpkin O's from Trader Joe's. Both claim to exclusively manufactured. Both are made in Canada and they have the exact same nutrition information as well as ingredient list. Trader Joe's Pumpkin O's look like they have more air holes and more glaze on the cereal but otherwise they look identical. I bought them separately, hoping for two distinct pumpkin cereals but alas, they are like long lost twins. So much for the exclusivity of the contract for manufacture. I guess the very, very slight difference in air and glaze meets the terms for a possible non-compete clause. In either case, the cereals are both good if a bit much on the sweet side with a distinct pumpkin taste along with mild spices. We will probably look for them again next year but I don't know which brand we will buy since they are so similar.
