5:55 am
eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

us. all that good stuff. do you guys like to grill? >> yes. >> we will help you make the barbecue more efficient with the hacks. here is the first one. if you ever grilled fish -- oh, did i do something wrong? shoot. here's the thing. when you are cooking fish and it can go in the grill. how about this? put some lemons on the bottom. when you flip it over, don't get me to do that, it gets the lemony taste without sinking in the grill. i never grilled before. that is what the hacks are telling me. here you go. here is the next one. look how nice i did that. how about burgers? no one likes a dry piece of meat. take ice chips. you put them into the patty before you grill. apparently the ice cubes keep your patty from drying out. i wondered about the taste. i don't know. or a bit of apple juice to keep the flavor in there. that is interesting. you are great.
