Computer Problems ~ Dude ~ Picture(s) of the Day ~ #6 & #7 Dirtiest Cities in the US ~ Bacon Lovers Chicken Alfredo with Fettuccine and Broccoli ~ Bruiser's Paw ~ National Hydration Day

Good 61ยบ clear sunny morning. 
I had some problems with my computer this morning first thing and got a hold of AOL help and they fixed the problem. Whew........ 
Yesterday morning I picked up Dude from the veterinary hospital. Here are photos of his leg.....

Here are the x-rays of the plate and screws that were put in his leg... a plate and screws were put in the leg. 

He is on a LOT of meds and will have to go back and see the doc in 8 weeks for a checkup and maybe an x-ray. Our vet will remove the staples in 2 weeks.
Picture of the Day.... This is in the University Hospital in Portland.... I was there in 2006 for hand surgery and this is the bathroom..... LOL! I had to take a picture of the sign!

Interesting about #6 and #7 dirtiest cities in the US....
This is not something I expected, #6 on the list:
The air pollution in Phoenix is just awful, which is what landed this Southwestern city the sixth spot on the list. Most of the major air pollution in the country gets attributed to California cities, but don’t discount Phoenix as a major problem too. The American Lung Association listed them as big offenders on their list of most polluted.
And #7......
The state of Texas has plenty of dirty cities but only Houston takes home the title for third most pests in the nation. Yuck.
Houston is also home to the country’s highest concentration of oil refineries and chemical plants, making it a haven for toxic air pollution. In fact, the buildings along the Ship Channel pump out more than 20 million pounds of polluted air per year.
Bacon Lovers Chicken Alfredo with Fettuccine and Broccoli
  • 1 lb thick cut bacon
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz dried fettuccine
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli florets


  1. Preheat a large (12") skillet over high heat.
  2. Fill large stock pot with water, add pasta when water boils. Cover pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Once pasta is pliable (no longer breaks if you try to bend it) add broccoli. Cook until pasta is just shy of al dente. Remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile: Grate cheese and set aside.
  4. Once skillet is hot; use clean scissors to cut bite size pieces of bacon into skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally until bacon is cooked through (adjust heat as necessary). Cook time about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile; wash and chop chicken into bite size pieces. Set aside.
  6. Remove cooked bacon from skillet with a slotted spoon. Place on a plate. Drain most of bacon grease from skillet, leave about 1 Tbsp (do not wash skillet). Add chicken to skillet. Return to stove and medium-high heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until cooked through, stirring occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet, about 5 minutes.
  7. Drain drippings from pan. Return to stove, over medium heat. Cut butter into 8 pieces and add to skillet. Once butter is mostly melted add cream and whisk until combined. Add cheese and whisk until your Alfredo sauce is smooth, keep sauce at a bubble.
  8. Using tongs, remove pasta and broccoli from water and add to Alfredo sauce. Twist the pasta in the sauce to coat. Add chicken and bacon, toss with and tongs. Heat until sauce is absorbed and coats the pasta, about 5 minutes.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

*** Here’s a rundown of fettuccine Alfredo’s history and sauce variations. The original dish was an extra-buttery version of an Italian standard, fettuccine al burro — fettuccine with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. It was created in Rome in 1914 by chef Alfredo di Lelio and served at his restaurant, Alfredo’s.

The games get intense under the hot summer sun. On June 23rd, National Hydration Day reminds us to replace fluids lost in the heat of battle.
The human body contains more than 60 percent water. Maintaining that balance while training is a challenge, doing it during the summer months is a practice that must be consistent. Becoming overheated or dehydrated can lead to heat stroke and possibly death.
There are ways to help prevent dehydration. Being hydrated before a workout even begins is important. If you are under hydrated before you start it is hard to catch up once the sweating starts.  Drink plenty of fluids throughout the training. These can include sports drinks which contain electrolytes (Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium and Potassium) to replenish the essential minerals the body loses through perspiration.
For some sports, there is also a product like FuelGard™ Mouthgard and Electrolyte Tablets, which has the dual duty of protecting the athlete as well as providing essential electrolytes for maintaining hydration balance while the athlete trains.
After the workout, your body will continue to need to replenish fluids.
Whether you are an athlete or not, stay hydrated on these hot summer days.
Founded by SafeTGard Corporation in honor of football Coach Victor Hawkins (September 1, 1964 – June 23, 2012) who invented a mouthguard that releases electrolytes to keep his players hydrated during games and practices. This day honors Coach Hawkins’ contributions to athlete health, safety and success. SafeTGard Corporation founded National Hydration Day to increase awareness of the importance of proper hydration to athletes everywhere. The day was approved by the Registrar at National Day Calendar in 2016.
