More naloxone tips.

Since my friend Krystal died of a fentanyl overdose last year, I've started keeping a naloxone kit in my first aid bag in my car (I used to carry a naloxone pill in the 90s). There was a info booth at a fair and the pharmacist. Kent Guidon, told me that more than two nasal sprays can be used if the paramedics haven't arrived yet and the overdose victim hasn't responded, so I got some more. He also said to angle out the spray toward the eye after getting the nozzle in to better get the naloxone into the sinus, and to use the sprays on alternating nostrils.

Which Kerr?

Jim Kerr, Simple Minds, 2017

Photo: Stefan Brending,

Last month I wrote Happy Father's Day in Welsh,  Sul y Tadau Hapus, on Cherisse Osei's page as she had a video with her father in Wales. Just now someone 'loved' it on Facebook. I wondered who it was...Jim Kerr... nah, it couldn't be the same Jim Kerr, lead singer for Simple Minds, the band she's a drummer was! I was wondering how he knew Welsh when I saw he hearted everyone's comment. (I'm assuming it was an app)

Another yellowish red sun

Yellowish-red sun. Not that much haze from the forest fires, but the light is still yellowish-red, so I imagine the smoke is in the upper atmosphere.

Dogwood, maybe

Maybe a dogwood? Abundant flowers just growing by the roadside on Watkin's Corners Road, near Purdon Conservation Area. June 2023. One suggestion my friend on Mammoth made was a Mock Orange, Philadelphus spp.

Bird of Paradise


Thrift store find - Promo brochure for 1951 version of Bird of Paradise, starring Louis Jordan as a Frenchman who goes to Polynesia, marries a native, played by the not-very-Polynesian Debra Paget, who is sacrificed to a volcano. Seriously. I think it's a fumetti with the plot given along with still photos.

Little Girl

 There was a little girl, about eight, sitting on a folding chair at the entrance to a small mall. She had a cardboard box that had stuffed toys in it - "What are you selling?" "Some toys" "Here's a donation" I said, giving her a five. "What are you trying to raise money for?" I asked, thinking it might be for a school project. "I don't know, maybe for my dad." and her voice wavered. "Here's another ten - take care of yourself!"
