The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

February 24, 2015

Clarksville Book ReviewClarksville, TN – Once in a while when you’re in a second-hand store, you can run across a book you’ve missed when it first came out, but one that becomes a lifelong favorite. That’s what happened to me when I found “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows (The Dial Press, August, 2008).

Who could resist a book with a title like this!

The entire book is a series of letters with the central character a writer named Juliet Ashton. The initial setting is just after World War II as Juliet is setting out on a book tour for her collection of columns she wrote during the war to help keep up spirits of those at home in England.

February 14, 2015

Researchers Estimate at Least Two Percent of All Future Cancers in the U.S. Will Stem from CT Scans Alone – That’s Approximately 29,000 Cases and 15,000 Deaths Per Year

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY – X-rays have been used for almost 120 years and computed tomography, or CT scans, were introduced in the 1970’s. These newer scans allow doctors to see with unprecedented precision the inner workings of the human body through the use of multiple X-ray images. Their use has grown from fewer than 3 million per year in 1980 to more than 80 million today.

CT scans emit a powerful dose of radiation, in some cases equivalent to about 200 chest X-rays, or the amount most people would be exposed to from natural sources over seven years. [Read more]

AAA says Georgia’s average Gas Price drops below $2

January 26, 2015

Pump prices expected to fall again this week

AAATampa, FL – The average price for gasoline in Georgia fell below $2.00 a gallon last week for the first time since May 2009. Georgia became the 29th state to slip below the $2.00 threshold on Friday. Florida’s average price was 8 cents above $2.00 on Sunday, but should drop below $2.00 within the next month.

“The gas price plunge is directly connected to declining global crude oil prices,” said Mark Jenkins, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Like pump prices, crude oil prices have posted multi-year lows due to global supply outpacing demand, which has kept downward pressure on the price of crude and ultimately meant hefty discounts in retail gasoline for U.S. drivers. The price of oil dipped again last week, meaning motorists could see even more discounts at the pump in the coming days.” [Read more]
