  • The air quality is horrible in Dallas and so are my allergies. It’s all because of a dust up in the Sahara, really – Saharan Dust Making Its Way To Texas, Bringing Allergies And Epic Sunsets
    • Dust from the Sahara Desert (the world’s third largest desert located about 5,000 miles away in North Africa), is drifting over Texas again and causing an increase in allergy complaints. Runny nose, scratchy throat, post-nasal drainage. Sneezing. Sometimes congestion, and hot summer temperatures aren’t helping either. The dust cloud is officially called the Saharan Air Layer. It forms in the late spring or early summer every year due to storms in Africa’s Sahel region bordering the Sahara Desert. And then, it drifts across the Atlantic Ocean into the western hemisphere. This particular dust outbreak left the African coast about ten days ago, where it was about the size of the continental United States. It traveled across the tropical Atlantic, through the Caribbean, between Central America and Cuba, and into the Gulf of Mexico.
  • There’s a story behind every scar.
  • One of my friends made an interesting observation about the relationship between me and my ex. She said the ex doesn’t want to discuss anything about the divorce because she doesn’t want to feel she’s on trial and has to defend herself, while I feel like I’ve been to trial and never had a chance to defend myself.
  • The dog looks at peace, but I don’t think he got a say in the matter.

  • Here’s some background to this story.

  • Time which has passed since the Wise County Sheriff’s Office has failed to solve the murder of Lauren Whitener in her home at Lake Bridgeport: 1,078 days.
