Generally, one can't be certain what ponds and other water bodies in the Charleston area have alligators in them. It's best if you don't know the pond, to not send your dog into the water. Even a 6 foot alligator can easily grab and drown a 75 lb. Labrador. I don't even want to think about the Big Boys that are lurking about.
It's almost time to move Taylor to the ex-pat list:
Me, or the blog. I’m predictably busy and borderline psychotic. Why in the hell did I think it was a good idea to give my last day at work only TWO days before I was moving? That gives me almost no cushion time to frantically pack at the last minute. Instead, I’m staying up till 3 AM packing, then getting up and going to work early and busting ass all day to try and get things settled here, then I go home and start packing again.
Blood sugar, I mean. Mine has been high in the morning in the past and I've been struggling with how to get it down. For a while, eating a little protein before bed worked. Exercise in early evening also seemed to help. But the numbers are creeping back up and that's not good.
Patrick on the double standard:
A few weeks ago, a college student wrote a letter to his local newspaper questioning the way a block party had been covered.
Specifically, he complained that the media had unfairly portrayed college students as “irresponsible” and suggested that accusations of “rowdy” behavior was unjustified.
