Dear 16 year old me:

This was sent to me by a friend.  People of my generation (late mid early 60's) baked in the sun and used baby oil to fry our skin.  I'm a redhead and didn't spend a lot of time actually tanning but I never used suntan lotion, and had many major burns.  KIDS - don't do that now - it's BAD BAD BAD!!!!!  Take 5 minutes and watch this video - the information you get from it may just save your life, or the life of someone you love!


  1. I don't even want to think about how many sunburns I had. But I do check my skin!

  2. Not only did I use baby oil ~ we mixed iodine in it ~ and we were on Miami Beach. Really bad. Of course I now have that to thank for my bouts of skin cancer. We had no clue back then.


Thanks for visiting! I try to reply to all comments - if you're a No Reply blogger or using Google + I can't get your email address so please leave it (obfuscated somehow) in the message so I can write back (and snoop your blog, lol) - thank you!
