Yesterday I talked to a man who has a donated heart beating in his chest.
A year ago today a team of medical people took me apart and put me back together again.
The procedure they performed was next to miraculous.

"The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."
"Because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know."

Charlottesville City Council held a public hearing last night on proposed changes to City Code regarding dogs.
All the changes are directed towards preventing dog attacks. Dogs v dogs and dogs v people.
The interesting thing, some people spoke against the proposed changes! Dog people!
So here it is. For over a year CHO citizens work on improvements to the animal control ordinance. The day of the meeting people who don't live in Charlottesville come in and speak against proposed changes.

trick or treat
Halloween. Paid the real estate tax for my simple frame home. The real estate tax bite is huge. Yearly I spend more on real estate tax than I do for food.
