When you bake your turkey, don't forget to turn on the range hood

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Tis the season for lots of baking, so don't forget that even new stoves can give off very high levels of carbon monoxide. CO is colorless, odorless, and deadly, but a properly working range hood fan can vent it outside.

I plan on doing as little as possible today besides eat and watch football (Lions - meh, Cowboys - boo!) My favorite Thanksgiving football memory was Randy Moss shredding the Cowboys for my long-suffering Vikings (Drew Pearson pushed off! that's how long I have despised the Cowboys).

Oh well, enough of that. Whether you're religious or not there is usually something to be thankful for and I hope you all have a pleasant holiday and drive safe.

Hi there
Another source of CO is the common wood burning fireplace. For more info, please visit this site:
