Weird title I know, but I confess I love alliteration.
1) Hiatus: This blog will be in neutral for a few days as I have to take care of something that will keep me away from the computer. I'm going to try and post a bunch of pics today, but it will be pretty quiet at Pure Florida this week.
2) Hurricanes: Whoa! Four named storms already! Dennis looks problematic for us, but it is still early. My mom always says that we will have a "D" name storm on her birthday and usually she is right. Mom's birthday is in September, traditionally the busy hurricane month. This is barely July and we have a potentially very dangerous Dennis growing out there now.
3) Hemoglobin: I gave blood today and I always feel like such a good guy after doing that. One more donation and I hit 7 gallons. I remember as a teenager going with my buddy Kevin for his first donation. I was too chicken back then, so I was just along for moral support. As I recall, we went to McDonalds afterwards and he paid ($.75 for a quarter pounder with cheese) the bill for both of us. At the time, I attributed his new found generosity to the missing pint of blood. I have an uncle who must have donated a small swimming pool's worth of the precious red stuff by now, because I remember him hitting 10 gallons 20 years ago.
It's supposed to be good for us menfolks too since we don't...um...you know...the monthly thing. Keeps the iron levels down...like a an oil change for the bod.
And the free T-shirt is to die for!
