    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    From Access (Formerly Access Hollywood)—VIDEO: Did Prince Charles and Camilla Just Spoil Meghan’s Due Date? The linked video speculates Prince Charles’ office (moreso than Charles & Camilla themselves) has inadvertently spoiled at least the range of dates which includes Meghan’s due date. At the link it says the Prince’s office has announced he & Camilla are going on a 4-day trip to Germany starting May 7th. Then it says that likely means/has to mean Meghan will have given birth by then because Charles (& Camilla, by extension) won’t want to be gone that long if Meghan hasn’t had the baby yet, because they’ll wanna see grandchild #4 right away. But wasn’t at least Charles somewhere when Prince Louis was born? I remember he didn’t see him right away, for some reason, & he finally saw him at either Kensington Palace or the Cambridges’ country house (which I forget the name of) when he went to see Princess Charlotte on her birthday, which is near Prince Louis’ birthday. I’m guessing though, Charles wants to be available, in London, on the day Harry & Meghan become parents because it’s their first child (not like it’s their third, like with William & Catherine).

    Don't Eat That! The Food Recall Thread

    This thread is for posting information on food recalls, whatever may have caused them to be issued (bacterial contamination causing illness/hospitalization, foreign object contamination [such as glass or metal shards accidentally finding their way into packaging] in the packaging process, mislabeled packaging [such as packages falsely stating a known food-type allergen, such as peanuts or gluten, either is or isn't in the product], etc.). The thread title kinda sucks, but it's the best I could think of. I think it's an important enough issue--as knowing about a food recall could potentially save someone's life--to warrant a separate thread rather than being buried in the Small Talk thread, which isn't even supposed to be for food-related talk, or in What's for Dinner? (the 2 most likely existing threads where this might be discussed), where it also doesn't fit. Here's a recall I just found earlier today: From USA Today: Don't Eat Crab Meat From Venezuela, CDC and FDA Warn Amid Multistate Outbreak Fresh crab meat from Venezuela is infected with the Vibrio parahaemolyticus virus, which has infected at least 12 people across the country, including 4 hospitalizations, as of Friday. People sickened by the virus have been found in Maryland, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, & the District of Columbia. The crab meat can commonly be found in plastic tubs; it might be labeled as "pre-cooked". If can be served chilled or reheated. Symptoms, which usually develop within 24 hours of infection by the bacteria, include watery and sometimes bloody diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, and stomach pain. Consumers are being advised to ask their grocers and restaurants where their crab meat comes from before buying it. Retailers should not be selling the infected meat. **** Also from USA Today: Up to 100 Salmonella Infections in 33 States Linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks Cereal This is a continuing recall originally issued in June **** Another from USA Today: Hormel Recalls 220,000 Pounds of Spam Over Metal Contamination Fears This recall was originally issued in May

    In Memoriam: Celebrity Deaths

    Thanks for the correction/info. I edited/deleted the link. I wish whomever keeps reposting old obits in original or other sources like they’re new (& I know there’re probably multiple people who do it) would stop doing it & confusing everyone. I didn’t remember he had already died, so that’s why I posted (& I’d bet I probably posted the real obit originally too).

    Hawaii 5-0 In the Media

    Congratulations & Best Wishes for a long & happy life together go to Alex & his longtime partner, Malia Jones, who were very quietly & very recently married in Hawaii (Apparently sometime this week--pictures of a Hawaiian-style wedding celebration involving a couple named "Alex & Malia", as well as other pictures/comments seemingly confirming a marriage for the couple, have shown up on Twitter, Facebook, & Instagram [at least] in the last couple of days)! People magazine's website confirms the nuptials today, in an article containing an official statement, but very few details, from the couple's Publicist. The details that were included, about the length of their relationship & the birth of Lion, their son together, were slightly inaccurate. http://www.people.com/people/mobile/article/0,,20808358,00.html Edited to add: I couldn't resist sharing this pic which showed up on Social Media in the last few hours, of Alex & Malia cutting their wedding cake. Mostly because they're both too good looking in it to ignore. https://mobile.twitter.com/Parker5050/status/457279102639431680/photo/1 If you can't see all of it, click Expand (or anything else)--that should get you the full picture, which deserves to be seen that way (my opinion). The wedding was apparently yesterday, the 17th (maybe the day before, the 16th). The reception (if not also the wedding) was apparently held at the Waikiki restaurant of Food Network's Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Many here may remember Morimoto had a cameo--Chef & restaurant--in a memorable scene from Ep 120: Steve broke his arm after finding a dead body while hiking to the petroglyphs with Danny, then Danny (& Steve, sort of) had to comb through a bucket of fish sold to Chef Morimoto's restaurant so they could find ballistics evidence (the bullet) attached to their dead body.

    Hawaii 5-0 In the Media

    I’m watching Food Network. A few minutes ago they ran a promo for the new season of The Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, which starts its new season on Sunday night at 9PM Eastern/8PM Central (I think). Among the celebrity participants this season is our very own Mary Ann McGarrett, Taryn Manning (also Morgan Fairchild, who honestly no longer looks as beautiful as she was back when you pretty much couldn’t avoid her on primetime TV back in the ‘80s & early/mid ‘90s).

    They’re saying Lori & Mossimo could get up to 4 years & 9 months; I don’t know, for sure, if that’s because they finally plead not guilty or if it’s always been the lowest sentence on that 40 years they keep mentioning in connection with them. Also When Calls the Heart, 1 of the 2 Hallmark Channel series Lori starred in (WCTH on the original Hallmark Channel; The Garage Sale Mysteries on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel) was renewed for a seventh season in the last few days. Without Lori & her character, & with Lori presumably having also been bought out of her Executive Producer title/position on that show (though I suppose she was an EP on the mysteries too).

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    OK. Googling accomplished! They used “crib” because Baby2Baby is a charity based here in the US; among their posted lists of those involved with the charity in some way are a number of American actresses (I don’t know how many, if any, either Meghan, Harry, or both of them actually know personally/socially). This talks more about them; their site’s homepage (which the link does not go to) includes a little scrolling “Thank You” to the Duke & Duchess of Sussex for encouraging donations to them in honor of their upcoming baby (the general idea of what they said; not a verbatim quote), with a pic of Harry & Meghan.

    I agree. But if the charity was UK-based, they should’ve used “cot” instead of “crib” too. Maybe they’re not UK-based; I feel some Googling for more info on the charity coming on.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    It’s a small thing, but I noticed that in talking, in the Instagram post, about how the donations helped an organization named Baby2Baby, they said they’d received “cribs” among the donations of actual baby products to be dispersed to those in need (they also received monetary donations). I found that interesting because they used the American English word, “crib”, for the item in the Instagram post; the UK English word for the same item is “cot”. Being a British-based social media account, you’d think they’d have used the UK English term (unless Meghan was somehow involved in writing the post & she forgot/didn’t know what the UK English name was for the item).
