She said that sometimes a person will have a hard time finding someones pulse and they spend too much time when they could be doing compressions instead. So check if they're breathing and if not, start compressions.

That's what I mean about dumbing it down. "Some" people have a hard time locating a pulse, so they teach everyone to not take the time to find it.

One other thing that was pretty interesting though is that they're talking about changing over to doing just hand compressions on the chest and not breathing into a persons mouth. Two study's she mentioned show that the survival rate of doing compressions only is much higher than the other way.

One study in Arizona showed that over 40% of the victims, who were treated with hand compressions only, survived. And only a little over 20% of the victims who were given breaths and hand compressions survived.

Lots of howling going on outside tonight. They kind of sound like wolfs They are not all yippy like the coyotes. They're really close. I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple on the lawn. The dog keeps looking out the window...Rastacat is sleeping through it all.

Maybe the neighbor guy is teaching his pet pig a new language?

Do you have bears in your area too?

Every now and then one is spotted within several miles of here, even in the populated areas.

Those neighbours were having a huge bonfire the other night. Oddly, I haven't seen the pig since.
Speaking of slovenly, in the mornings when I walk past, (after the world has been rushing around for hours) the Mrs. can often be found sitting outside the side door, in her bathrobe, puffing away on cigarettes.

Charming

Lots of bears. I've never seen one right in the village ( we are so small, we don't have village status yet), but every year you hear about a few wandering into the local towns.
My old place is about 7 minutes away. Lots of forest. People around there used to see them, but black bears are shy and they don't want to be seen. Mostly. I would just see their scat around the property.

My friend has a horse farm also about 5 minutes away. In the summer she doesn't keep them in paddocks. They are free to wander all over. When I go to leave and open the door sometimes there is a big horse standing right there waiting for an apple

Rossi has good recipes! I'll be trying the banana bread.

Does anyone have a recipe for beer bread? I buy a mix from the Tastefully Simple company (they do home parties) to make for special occasions and serve it with spinach dip. But it costs about $5 per bag of mix, before adding the beer, so I'd like to make it from scratch.

It's mostly (as far as I know) used for dips. It's cut into small squares and you spread whatever you like on it. I usually make the spinach dip from the recipe on the back of the Knorr vegetable soup mix.

Instead of beer, the directions on the box of beer bread mix says you can use a can of regular soda pop. I tried it that way once and it didn't taste quite right. But I think that's how my sister-in-law makes it, instead of using beer. You don't really taste the beer in the bread anyway, but it does add a different flavor than the pop.

Hi Guys,
Whenever I've made beer bread ( and its been a long while) I used Brodies self rising flour. The bag had a recipe on the back.
I can't remember much, probably because I would have drank the rest of the beer, but it seems to me it would have less proofing time.
