    PSA: Be careful when driving...

    It's that time of year again, when turtles are crossing the road! So keep an eye out, especially in more rural areas. If you see something in the road, slow down. If it's a turtle, pull over (if it's safe to do so), and help it across the road, in the direction it's already going. Helpful video. :)

    Crime rate in Mechanicsville

    I mentioned to a co-worker that I am considering buying a house in Mechanicsville. He says, "Oh, you have to be careful of the crime there." I find this odd, since a lot of the area is fairly rural. So I ask him what kinds of crime. And he says, "People just coming around, taking stuff."...
