This is Your Brain on Cronuts: Fat Phobia, Beer Belly, and Lots of Numbers for Food Scrounge News

Yesterday the phone line servicing the area was cut, and today I can’t update the Food scrounge News page without getting a “WordPress is not responding” message. Has anyone experienced this problem? Enough whining. Today you saved a click or two by reading the post here. How about a nature walk on our driveway instead? We saw this water snake stretched out just before sunset last week. The scrounge cats ran like hell when they saw it.

The snake is about 3 feet long. It moved very slowly and did not seem disturbed by our presence. No, it is not a poisonous snake. There are six poisonous species in this area: Timber rattler, Pygmy rattler, Coral, Cottonmouth, Copperhead, and the Diamond back rattlesnake.
This guy is a Southern Water snake, lethal to mosquitoes and other insects. Food news is below.
