Not sure where anyone posting on here is from seeing as how this doesn't seem to be a local siteRead More anymore, but... if you want to donate blood then call the RI Blood Center. They are soley responsbible for blood for RI area hospitals. The Red Cross, although an ok organization, is looking for blood for MA hospitals. There has been this issue going on for some time now in border towns where the Red Cross asks RI residents for blood but the blood is not for RI. Call the RI Blood Center and ask... or ask Red Cross point blank where the blood is going (not RI).

Just as I assumed. After checking several different patch sites, this "article" appears onRead More many of them. So... RI RESIDENTS: CALL THE RI BLOOD CENTER TO DONATE BLOOD. NOT THE RED CROSS. Outside of RI? Call the Red Cross.

Once again, no attempt to converse. Throwing insults is all you can muster? Do you know how toRead More think critically and thoughtfully? Oh, and Denmark has one of the highest standards of living in the world. At least you were thoughtful enough to recommend such a highly desirable, highly evolved location for me to reside. :)

Unbelievable....The man is evil

I didn't realize he had been filling in for Savage as well. They are BOTH evil. Perhaps some findRead More his show entertaining, but I am not one of them. After all of the transgressions he's made and been temporarily suspended from his job, I think his station should fire him permanently. But I suppose his brand of nastiness and negativity is profitable.

What? He should work for NPR, where NO ONE would here him?

While it is true that many people will over or under estimate the passage of time; some can relateRead More an event to another more significant event (at least to them) that can pretty well establish an accurate accounting of when it occurred. Not seeing the original figures but only going by the picture it seems to me the figures show more than a few years of weathering. Nor do the figures appear to have been made by a chisel and hammer. They do have a worn appearance like they were ground out with a harder rough textured stone.

Has journalism devolved so far as to give equal time to pseudoscientists and armchair experts?

Are you referring to yourself or some other libral "expert"'

A child's blow up swimming pool left on top of a patio table had 4.5 inches of rain water in itRead More Saturday morning in Bristol. Perhaps not a very scientific way of measuring total rainfall, but good enough to be in the ball park I imagine.

I had 5" of rainwater in my 5 gallon watering buckets in East Greenwich.

Thank you Charlene for posting, there are also higher instances of pets drowning during this weekendRead More as well. Between the heat, fireworks, toxic substance ingestion, and drowning, it is best to leave dogs in a safe area at home in the A/C preferably in a crate with access to a water bottle. Vermont Naturals makes a great product called "Calming Treats", it is available at PetLife. Also soft music or a TV running in the background can also ease anxiety. If you need additional help, please consult your veterinarian. I have never had luck with Thundershirts for our dogs in rescue, but the T-Touch wrap seems to work much better. You can Google for more information.
