Good 53º scattered clouds morning.
The cloud cover was keeping the sun from coming through....
We started out at 53º and topped at 98º.
Yesterday some turkey hens and their babies were out on the side of my house. One was up in the grapevine eating grapes!
Picture of the Day .... hmmmm......
Interesting.... about penicillin ..
Sir Alexander Fleming (6 August 1881 – 11 March 1955) was a Scottish physician and microbiologist. His best-known discoveries are the enzyme lysozyme in 1923 and the world's first broadly effective antibiotic substance benzylpenicillin (Penicillin G) from the mould Penicillium rubens in 1928, for which he shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945 with Howard Florey and Ernst Boris Chain. He wrote many articles on bacteriology, immunology, and chemotherapy.
Benzylpenicillin, also known as penicillin G, is an antibiotic used to treat a number of bacterial infections. This includes pneumonia, strep throat, syphilis, necrotizing enterocolitis, diphtheria, gas gangrene, leptospirosis, cellulitis, and tetanus. It is not a first-line agent for pneumococcal meningitis.
