Well? Any more news? Has the radiation become a significant threat to us yet?

Actually I've been dealing with a good company over the years & they have fair pricing. I think my decision will either be a Gamma Scout or a Terra P. Do you have any views about either of them?

The problem is you'll probably never find a place where it would do you any good. Buy a few cases of beer and enjoy your self. If it went off scale what would you do? I almost never used one except when I used an Iridium or Cobalt source for radiography. It told me when the pill was inside the lead case which was of interest to me. Why would a rational person buy something that couldn't help any place you might be when you're going to have people watching this like a hawk? Now if you bought a few tons of lead sheets you could build your self a box and crawl in it which would be something you could sell after you found out you never needed it.

Bark, did you get some of those iodine tablets? I was going to order some but then remembered that we've got shellfish allergies. So I bought some nice local Pinot instead.
Yes. I got 5 bottles today.

Well being a jewelry appraiser I occasionally come across irradiated stones. So I could write it off as a business expense. It would be fun to show people how much radon is in their spendy granite countertops too.

oh my gosh ....life it's self is a sexually transmitted disease that you eventually die from ...other things may kill you before your body rebels and dies on it's own......embrace what you have now at this moment and the rest of the time that you breath! dream and plan as if you will live forever and live as if you'll die in an hour! live with Mindfulness

To replace the bottles that I'd purchased in 2007 mainly.
