Wheels on Ice: Slip-Sliding and Loving It. There have been a few crazy cyclists out on Santa Fe’s streets, mixing it up with cars, sans studded tires, apparently biking to work.  I give them not just five feet, but a whole lane’s clearance.

Nerves as Frayed as the Sofa? Call Your Own Dog Whisperer.  Rescue animals often have serious issues that rescue advocates, once they’ve cleared you (and your home) for adoption, will all too readily gloss over.  Anything to save the animal from the cremation oven.  In my brief experiences with attempting to adopt a rescue animal here in NM, many have issues with men specifically ― men having been the more violent of the behavior-enforcers.  If you’ve got the time to help one out, bless you.  If you don’t ... go to a reputable breeder.

Hunch delivers in mail-theft case.  Those charge-card checks you get in the mail are a huge risk to your financial health.  Many are turning to PO boxes, it seems, as a preventative.  You can get locking rural mailboxes; in fact, I think I may purchase one of these models, now that I’ve read this article.
