I keep my grass mowed, weeds cut down as much as I can, and yet, my dogs seem to find the ticks wherever they are hiding. That's because the dirty little blood suckers are transported from place to place on other animals, where they lay their eggs. Then the eggs hatch and the ticks are successfully spread practically everywhere. Sure, my dogs have an insecticide treatment every month, but we humans don't and therein lies the problem. We humans have to be concerned about Lyme disease.
I'm going to confess right up front that I frequently forget, especially if I've been in a place for very long, where I parked my car! And how embarrassing is it when you cut a turn too sharply and you hit the curb with the tire, or worse, pop up and then down as you run over it? Two thousand drivers (50% men/50% women) were asked what their most embarrassing driving mistakes have been and this is what they said...
I must admit that I will hunt for and eat strawberries year ‘round because I enjoy them so much. A juicy, ripe and flavorful strawberry is one of Heaven’s gifts on Earth, as far as I’m concerned. So when Indiana’s strawberry season blooms, I’m ready for slurrpin’ up the strawberries!
It’s a 19th Century structure that has added character to Evansville, specifically the neighborhood along Chestnut Street, for many years.

We learned Friday that Robert Mathis has been suspended for the first four regular season games due to failing a preseason drug test. He says that the drug in his system was one to help him improve fertility. The NFL says, "Too bad." Will Robert Mathis, a team leader and player with over 19 sacks last year, be missed enough to cause Colt losses during those first four games?
I realize how the title may make you raise your eyebrows, but that’s only because you may not know what I know. I recently read an Associated Press article regarding the treatment of cows in Norway on one particular farm in Kozarac, Bosnia-Heregovina. In those places,
Which type of book do you like to curl up with and read, an electronic book or a good old fashioned book? Are printed books going to die out like the dodo bird did? For the time being, it appears that even with the "coolness" factor of e-books, printed books are holding their own and don't seem to be becoming extinct.
I began thinking about the people who usually win prizes from radio stations. We have our loyal listeners who win prizes, and we have listeners who surf the radio stations in the area and try to win as many prizes as they can. What these people may be forgetting is that their prizes, once they reach a total value of $600 or more, will have to be accounted for to the Internal Revenue Service. In other words, if you have won prizes that total a value of $600 or more, you will be responsible for paying taxes on those prizes to the I.R.S.
With springtime comes the annual Evansville Streets Alive! It's Evansville's open street event, part of a nationwide movement to get people moving. It's not just a street fair, though, it's much more; however, no vehicles are allowed, but if you want to bring your bicycle, skateboard or walk or dance, you're invited to do so! This year, Evansville Streets Alive will have an additional new location.

After all, LAB has just awarded Evansville an honorable mention on its Bicycle Friendly Communities list. Celebrate Friday and ride your bike to work!
