Peace O' Sand

Two news blurbs caught my achtung.

1. Digging Holes in the Sand Can Be Deadly
Yeah it's early to be preaching summer, even OBX, safety, but this report is from the New England Journal of Medicine. Here's whatcha need to know:

  • Sand collapses occur in ordinary holes that people dig -- some only a few feet deep -- and in tunnels that collapse.

  • In some cases, people fall into existing holes and the sand collapses around them.

  • Sand collapses occur most often at beaches, but they can happen at other places like lakes or even backyards.

2. Building for Peace/Permanent Headquarters Project
The building site for the Whirled Peas HQ is gonna be located at the northwest corner of the National Mall at the intersection of Constitution Avenue and 23rd Street NW, the site faces the Lincoln Memorial and is adjacent to the Korean War and Vietnam Veterans memorials.

This site does not, I repeat, does not affect field space.

Slug Lines Save Time, Money

It's nice to see NBC4 keeping their news local with the recent headline Slug Lines Save Time, Money.

If you haven't been to pickup lately (yes I'm talking to *you*), then you may not be aware of the recent addition of weekend Slug Lines. They appear shortly after the 10:35am timeframe, with a different colored t in their hand, toeing the sideline waiting to yell "Last Back!"

Question: How to save money?
Answer: Go to pickup at the National Mall; Avoid the Shopping Mall.
Question: How to save time?
Answer: Get to pickup earlier; Skip sideline slug-lines.

As the article states: "Slu[d]ging is like organized...except there's no one organizing it."

Deal or No Deal?

salty goodness
There are more questions than answers the day after. Not talking about The Sothisisit?pranos finale. Sludge stomachs are grumbling over the lack of delish, mouth-watering Crack Chips.

Lesson Learned: When's there's a pool party, there must be
Crack Chips.
