Thank you Kaori for sending me a fantastic of your shoulder!! Of note: because torso skin is thinner and often more oily, henna stains will be lighter on torso areas than on hands or feet! I'm thrilled to have been given such great examples of fully "ripened" ! πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

I needed something to make me smile this morning. It's hard not to smile when watching bhangra β˜ΊοΈπŸ’–

Representing the Punjabi Folk Dance Academy, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, this is the Punjab Folk Dance Aademy Junior Bhangra team performing at Bhangra I...

5 Reasons to Beware BA.5

Y'all ... Putcher dayum masks back on.
"But reinfections come with risks, experts caution. Your symptoms may not be as bad if you get COVID-19 a second or third time, the thinking being that β€œyou’ve got some immunity that’s going to prevent the disease from progressing quickly and to that severe disease state,” Pekosz says.

Emerging research, however, shows that with each infection, even an asymptomatic one, your risk of developing complications β€” heart attack, stroke, diabetes and long-term cognitive impairment β€” increases."

The omicron subvariant is causing a summer surgeΒ
