I became a blood donor by accident. I was called for jury duty last year. As you know you have toRead More sit around and wait for your name to be called for a trial. While we were all waiting the jury attendant entered the room and announced that the mobile blood center just arrived. He said, " If you donate we will look very favorable upon you." I bolted out of my chair, ran down 4 flights of stairs , and got in line. My thinking was anything is better than sitting around another day waiting to be called for a trial. I was amazed at how fast and easy it was to donate blood. AND the jury attendant released me from jury duty for the next 3 years!! I've been donating blood every two months since that wonderful day I was released from jury duty...

Be wary. Some of these places give to inmates. The reason I took myself off the donors list.

While it is true that many people will over or under estimate the passage of time; some can relateRead More an event to another more significant event (at least to them) that can pretty well establish an accurate accounting of when it occurred. Not seeing the original figures but only going by the picture it seems to me the figures show more than a few years of weathering. Nor do the figures appear to have been made by a chisel and hammer. They do have a worn appearance like they were ground out with a harder rough textured stone.

Has journalism devolved so far as to give equal time to pseudoscientists and armchair experts?

Are you referring to yourself or some other libral "expert"'

A child's blow up swimming pool left on top of a patio table had 4.5 inches of rain water in itRead More Saturday morning in Bristol. Perhaps not a very scientific way of measuring total rainfall, but good enough to be in the ball park I imagine.

Thank you Charlene for posting, there are also higher instances of pets drowning during this weekendRead More as well. Between the heat, fireworks, toxic substance ingestion, and drowning, it is best to leave dogs in a safe area at home in the A/C preferably in a crate with access to a water bottle. Vermont Naturals makes a great product called "Calming Treats", it is available at PetLife. Also soft music or a TV running in the background can also ease anxiety. If you need additional help, please consult your veterinarian. I have never had luck with Thundershirts for our dogs in rescue, but the T-Touch wrap seems to work much better. You can Google for more information.
