Fact vs. fiction: Summer health hazards
It's that time of year again! Hopefully CrustyOldFart will keep track of consecutive days over 100F again! Last year the tally was 77 consecutive days in a row above the century mark from the end of June to the beginning of September.

Brace yourselves for Lyme disease outbreak – CDC
The more deer, the more ticks and the more ticks the greater the chances of Lyme disease. So does that mean we should just kill all the deer?
