My thumb has healed. It's weird, but when I cut it, it went across like I was cutting off the tip of my thumb but not all the way through. There was this flap of skin sticking up and I instantly pushed it down and applied pressure to stop the bleeding. After the bleeding stopped I bandaged it in such a way to keep that flap pushed down on the cut. Yesterday, when I changed the bandage, the flap was sticking up again. I pushed it back down and re-bandaged. This morning, the flap was really popped up, so I gently put my other thumbnail under it and it lifted off and there was newly healed skin underneath! The flap was still attached a bit at the other end, but a little tug pulled it right off. The new skin is a little sensitive, but looks fine. Isn't body healing amazing?

Carol, you should try those fast healing adhesive bandages. My finger has been healed for days.

I just missed the fledging of Tink's (the hummingbird in So. California on web cam) babies. But now I can watch the Decorah eagles cam----- eggs just hatched.

I don't know if this is 'live' or not, seems a little early so it may just be selections from last year (still interesting to watch)
Edit----Yep, just a loop tape, still worth the watch)

Brown bears at Brooks Falls in Alaska. I was hooked on it last year!

Yay, another eagle cam watcher!

Aren't they fascinating? I've been watching the Two Harbors Eagle Cam on Catalina Island, CA. There were 2 eggs, but 1 broke. The remaining eaglet hatched the last week of March. I love seeing the Mom and Dad's shift changes, and how they so tenderly feed the little guy tiny bits of fish.

I just looked a few minutes ago, and Dad is sitting on the nest with his wing spread out, shading little guy from the sun.

I wondered what happened with those eagles. I watched them two years ago, but didn't hear a thing about them last year. Thanks for the link.

I wish I could get a hawk cam in my tree...

Sounds like you showed her the wrong door. Shouldn't she have gone to the locked down ward?

I'm doing laundry while finishing up my neighbour's taxes. I will be taking them, along with my Dad's last return, to the taxation centre tomorrow...no e-filing them with the heartbleed bug!

I am planning to go to the pool tonight as I didn't get there this morning. Since I had my big meal at noon, I plan to go around 5 and then have a light salad or something after. I am always quite hungry when I am finished pool walking.

The CRA seems to be on top of the heartbleed bug. They shut down their online services quickly and have patched and tested their site and it is now safe. They even admit that they were breached. ~900 SINs were captured. They will be notifying those people by registered mail.

A heads up to all the Canadians here. The CRA will only contact people about this by registered mail. They will not be contacting people by email or by phone. So, if you get a phone call or an email claiming to be from the CRA about the heartbleed bug, it's a scam.

Statement by the Commissioner of the Canada Revenue Agency on the Heartbleed bug
