Weekly News

Welcome back! It’s Wednesday once again, and this particular Wednesday the first of my summer break. Did you hear that ecstatic sigh or catch the grin which took over my face? No? You’ll have to take my word for it. Whether you have summer break or not, the news I have for you today may produce either a grin or a sigh for you. Come, take a look.

A very odd tradition, but I was drawn in by the article’s title.

Yet another reason not to live in Florida. Not only do you have to deal with enormous bugs, snakes and massive humidity, but 7-foot alligators in your pool?

Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide for the win. Solutions rather than denial. Science rocks.

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

  1. You only get 7 ft alligators near the everglades in southern Florida. (Or on the GIANT ranch SW of Orlando.) Otherwise, the biggest you get is 4 ft. Typically. Honestly, I’ve lived here 8 years, owning a pool for 3 of those years, and I’ve seen a total of 4 alligators in the wild, all very small. Never in my pool. Or even close.

    OK, rolling down the hill is pretty funny, but the cheese seems to get away every time! Fascinating alligator footage. Really shows you how fast they can roll to confuse and drown prey. At least you can see him in the pool. I’ve seen a bunch in golf ponds suddenly pop out and go after golfers. “10 gigatons of CO2 need to be removed from Earth’s atmosphere every year to halt the pace of global warming.” Holy cow!!!

    I’d put up a better fence around my pool!
