Nature Near Twiggs

 

Sounds silly to have to seek out nature when it appears to be all around us.

But www.naturefind.com has taken it upon themselves to be searchable so that you can find nature near you, where you can enjoy it. (Driving by a crowd of pine trees on your way to work doesn't count, sorry.)

I searched Jeffersonville, Ga and found the following day-trip type adventures within 40 miles:

Tips for Traveling with Your Pet

 

On a typical warm sunny day, you may find yourself driving your car with the windows down while your dog is peering out the window – wind blowing in his face.  This may appear to be harmless however, it is not safe practice.

While we all love to see the shiny nose of a dog sticking out of a car window, the reality is that your pet's eyes could be injured by debris and other dirt in the air. Moreover, a passing squirrel or another dog or cat could prompt your pet to jump out of the window – a serious and often fatal mistake.

Summertime means vacation and road trips with friends and family. Taking your pet along for the ride could make vacation memories all the more special. Here are some tips on traveling with your pet that will help get your vacation off to a great start.

Hot Weather Tips for your Furry Friend

Hot Weather Tips for your Furry Friend

Please follow these guidelines to protect your companion animal when the mercury rises.

*Overheating can kill an animal. Never leave an animal alone in a vehicle, since even with the windows open, a parked car, truck or van can quickly become a furnace. Parking in shade offers only very short term protection, as the sun shifts during the day. When traveling, carry a gallon thermos filled with fresh, cold water.

 *Don't force your animal to exercise after a meal in hot, humid weather. Always exercise him in the early morning or in the evening.

 *In extremely hot weather, don't leave you dog standing on the street, and keep walks to a minimum. He is much closer than you to the hot asphalt, and his body can heat up quickly. His paws can also burn, since they are not protected by shoes.

Who are you remembering?

It's Memorial Day and many families have someone or even a handful of people in mind they are remembering.

Whether that someone has served in the military, or has gone to war.

Towns hold memorial services at courthouses or cemeteries and try to remember everyone who has ever sacrificed in one form or fashion for America.

Who is on your mind this Memorial Day weekend and how are you remembering them?

"Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened." --Billy Graham
