🚬🚬🚬The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is helping our young people stop #smoking before they even start. The agency changed the federal minimum age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21. The move is expected to save hundreds of thousands of lives as nearly 80% of current adult smokers started smoking before age 18. Call 1-800-QUIT NOW for help going smoke-free, or get more information: dhs.wisconsin.gov/tobacco21 🚬🚬🚬

Please heed this very important advice 🦃🔥🦃🔥🦃🔥🦃

This Thanksgiving, skip the turkey fryer. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) discourages the use of turkey fryers, which can easily tip over, cause burns, or even ignite. If that's STILL not enough to get you away from the fryer, be prepared with these tips to use a turkey fryer as safely as possible.

You might want to check this Ring video out. It's a Golden Chicken delivery person doing something disgusting while delivering food. When called, the people running the place didn't care. https://m.facebook.com/groups/173126234028311?view=permalink&id=265479158126351
I need to get some older immunization records. Do I have to stop down in person for them?
Since March 18th my life changed so much. I was having symptoms that were similar to a sinus infection with actually being congested. I couldn't smell or taste...headaches were so bad...i could hardly move...fevers got as high as 101.9! I kept in contact with this clinic. They even prescribed me an antibiotics. Still had no relief! Well April 7th i was tested for covid-19. April 8th results were in. All I read was detected...i thought how could this be...so I waited till nurse called to confirm what I thought wasn't possible and sure enough I tested positive for covid-19. I've never traveled any where except to the local store if I really needed something. I used every precaution. Sanitizer in all vehicles, lysol and bleached everything too....it just shows that there are people carrying this virus that are have no symptoms at all and some who do have symptoms. How fast it spreads and how tricky it is. Each day is a different day. One day you could be fine and the next your not. As of today I'm happy to report that I have recovered and have learned a new way at life! Love what you have, appreciate life you live, and know the governor is only protecting us from an evil virus! There's still carriers with no symptoms that I spreading it!! There's many still at high risk and many dying! This isn't influenza..this is covid-19 that strikes at its own risk! God is good!!! Thank you West Allis Health department and our nurse Yvonne for working close with us and thank you Froedtert for all you dedication in protecting and helping us recover! #thankful #gratefultobealive
Someone needs to inspect Pick and Save on 68 and National. Was there today. Bunch of packages of yogurt with expired dates. A guy was stocking in the dairy section. I bring it to his attention. He says. He just started working here. I said. Didn't management teach you about FIFO. First in and first out. In accordance with Serv Safe. With the state of Wisconsin. I said it loud enough for others to hear. This yogurts were 6 days past expiration.
