bike to work day...if you don't mind biking in the snow!!
many people did brave the weather though and participated on bike to work day. i tend to be a fair weather biker myself.
we went out to holgate 10 years ago with a larger group of fun friends...much discussion of that fun trip and how we will miss those who won't be joining us out there again this time. hoping we get the weather window.
earth is still frozen up here. no planting for a bit. summers are short, but the sun shines enough to make up for the shortness of it. always amazing how fast the place fills up with greenery once it gets going. i may have to take some hourly photo's one day to show that you can literally watch the grass grow up here.
i believe i got written up the other week for asking the lab to return at a later hour as my patient, who hadn't actually slept in 2 weeks, was asleep and i didn't want her disturbed. when i came back to work that night there had been a complaint about nurses not allowing lab to awaken their patients to draw labs. i said it was probably me and i would do it again....they could write me up all they want. haha.
sounds like he will fight to prevent the dog from being euthanized. looks like this whole thing could get pretty ugly. the parents and berkowitz have all lawyered up. was reading the article in the paper and cringing as berkowitz's lawyer was inferring that the parents should have been watching the kid more closely and that the child shouldn't have been there at all. probably not a good idea to be so indelicate when i kid is still hospitalized with serious injuries. makes me wonder if there will be loss of sponsership for this musher in the years to come. it's all just looking like it's going to be a sad and ugly mess. no winners. injured child, possibly euthanized dogs, severed friendships.
a local guy was trying to elude police capture yesterday by walking out onto cheney lake. the ice is very unstable. the police just surrounded the lake and waited. he eventually walked back off the lake and into custody. he was lucky he didn't end up in the drink.
