    Deer Tick Alert!!!

    I hate it when people send out so many false warnings, but this one is important! Send this to everyone--repeat, everyone--on your e-mail list!

    If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around, DO NOT DO IT!

    It is a SCAM; they only want to see you naked.

    --I wish I'd know about this yesterday.... I feel so stupid now.

    LOL! Though, when I taught general biology (college level...mature audience) and we went on an ecology field trip, we did recommend that if they had a very close or intimate friend, it wasn't a bad idea to have them help check for ticks that might have gotten under their clothing. Strangely enough, this actually seemed to be good incentive to finally convince the most fashion conscious to tuck their pants legs into their socks and look like dorks like the rest of us.

    In geology class we would go on field trips and, especially during Spring, he'd always tell us to search for ticks.

    When I worked in the clock shop ticks were a never ending problem.

    OK, I admit it. I laughed immediately at Ivan's gag. What can I say?

    Tsu, don't feel so bad. I fall for the UCLA med students' free breast exam hoax every year. *sigh* Guess I'll never learn.

    OK, it's settled. I am definitely getting Evo and Tsu different colored collars for Christmas. It's the only way to keep from getting mixed up.
