Beyond Second Relaunch

by: Sara Bozich
March 25, 2007, a Harrisburg-specific photography website begun by Dave Robertson and Rich Hauck recently relaunched with a new site design.

A personal side project for the pair, the new version boasts the following updates:

  • A fresh, new look for 2007
  • Discussion Forums
  • RSS Feeds
  • Tags
  • Photo Sets
  • Events
  • Improved photo-submission process
  • and more!

I’ve been a participant since the beginning (or very near it), but never put in the effort I probably should have. Check it out.

Here Comes the Weather

Ah, it’s flurrying again.

Things to do while at home this Sunday:

  1. Start reading The Central PA Gazelle. We don’t know who’s writing this, but we know we like this Harrisburg version of The Onion. Note today’s post on deciphering the state’s weather alert system.
  2. Bookmark (Dave, this is your long-awaited post.) It’s hard to keep track of all these crazy local bloggers, so Dave does it for you with one easy web address. Or two.
  3. Download HIMYM, or, in English, How I Met Your Mother. If you’re not watching this on Monday nights, you should be. I hope that The New Adventures of Old Christine returns quickly, too. This egg of a show, “Rules of Engagement” needs to move on. Didn’t we get our fill of David Spade with 7 seasons of Just Shoot Me!? Christine provides full belly laughs I don’t remember having with any show but HIMYM.
  4. Start your piece for The Mantis Collective‘s “Reveal.” Read details here.
  5. Come over and shovel my walk, car and driveway. You know I’m not going to do it.

Peter Pan Can

After my recent post on one of my favorite childhood snacks, Ritz Crackers and Peter Pan peanut butter, I got an email alerting me to the salmonella outbreaks in Peter Pan. Um, what?

So later that day, or maybe the next, I get some more emails about Peter Pan and their product recall and yes, salmonella is the culprit. I check the number on my can – yep, mine is part of that batch. I didn’t get sick from the amount I did eat, but I’d rather be safe than sorry over a $2 can of peanut butter.

If you have any questions about the recall or how to proceed, click here.

Perhaps it’s my ignorance on food-borne toxins, but could someone please explain to me how salmonella, a bacteria I equate with raw chicken, gets into PEANUT BUTTER??
