Our family adopted a greyhound some years ago and named her Aunt Bea, with a nod to the Andy Griffith Show. She was fresh off the track and her muscles were rock hard. But it didn't take long for her to settle into retirement and soften up a bit. Even so, she still maintained her sleek look and you could tell she was built for speed. Interesting facts about greyhounds: They either stand or lie down, and rarely sit (it is just too difficult for them). They can sleep 18 hours a day... ...but they can reach a max speed of... [More]

For example you could send an email when a situation is started. Or check a database and figure out who is really interested at a certain time of day. more...
Right behind my house is an old railroad line that has been converted into a hiking and biking trail called the American Tobacco Trail , and about a mile down, a creek runs under the trail. Of course, several other smaller creeks and run-offs converge to form this creek, and years ago, the railroad owners built a couple of pipes to allow the creek to keep flowing under the railroad tracks. After a big rain, the creek swells up and the flow through the pipes increases, but I don't have a way to know which of those... [More]
