Happy Halloween!

You will be greeted by my Cow Costume if you ring our doorbell.  My husband saw this at WalMart and decided that I needed it.  Background:  we are both Taurus and have many cow theme things in our house,

Signs

 We get a lot of door to door soliciting....often very annoying.  We saw this sign online and bought one....



Weekends Online: Protect That Film!

I found this alarming.......New CT-Scanner based machines for examining carry on bags will DESTROY your film!  Read details here.



But alarming on two fronts:  Film destroyed without warning (because the technicians are not very knowledgeable) and the high levels of radiation that CT Scanners emit.  Do the Techs know how much more radiation they are being exposed to?  There is a reason why the use of CT Scans is limited in medicine.

So why are we exposing TSA techs and casual travelers to so much radiation? Ostensibly to shorten the scan times.........For me, that's not a very god reason.  As Cancer Survivor, I'd rather wait and have less radiation exposure.

Here is a list of the Airports currently running CT Scanners:

  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)
  • Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI)
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD)
  • Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)
  • Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW)
  • Houston Hobby Airport (HOU)
  • Indianapolis International Airport (IND)
  • John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
  • Logan International Airport (BOS)
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
  • Miami International Airport (MIA)
  • Oakland International Airport (OAK)
  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)
  • Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)
  • St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL)
  • Tampa International Airport (TPA)
  • Washington-Dulles International Airport (IAD)
