Re: “We resolve to: Our resolutions to make the Triangle a better—and more fun—place in 2016

Great ideas! A few years ago I wanted to find new friends and be more active, so I joined the Eno River women's rugby team in Durham. It was one of the best decisions I've made - it's a fantastically fun, quirky, and accepting team! Contact if you're interested in joining them; no prior experience required! It's one of the gems of the Triangle.

Don't regress on the meat! Eating less meat/dairy is the way to go, for your health, the environment, and ethically for animals.

Re: “Poisoning our pets

You are all funny , half of you are talking about one product . Their is a bug killer that has all types of chemicals in it, ( sevin) you can buy this anywhere. Now this is a fine white powder that is safe to use anywhere. You buy this stuff at a farm and feed store. I hope this will help some of you

Re: “We resolve to: Our resolutions to make the Triangle a better—and more fun—place in 2016

Love these ideas. I think everyone can make small (or big) changes to add to their lives in a positive way. For the past few years I've made a list of "Things to do in 201-". I have next year's list of "16 things to do in 2016" ready to go! I love marking things off my Bucket List, making healthier changes to my life, and getting off my butt. A few friends have started to make lists too. We keep tabs on each other's lists and motivate each other to finish as many things as possible. By sharing my list with people it holds me accountable to get out there and do things I've never done before.

Re: “The best sushi in the Triangle

Waraji, yes....I can't believe Sushi Blues and Cow Fish made the list. Harris Teeter has better sushi that these both of these places. Cool atmosphere and Sushi Blues and Cow Fish, but not good fish! Try Geneki in Holly Springs, just as good as Waraji!

Re: “Will the ELF, from Durham-based Organic Transit, save the planet?

These are beautiful and I like the concept, but what's to stop thieves from jacking these with the occupant inside or outside? They are wide open and less agile than bicycles. So, I get laughed at or crushed by an SUV or have my transport stolen in Durham?

If the neighbor out of courtesy asks before setting off Fireworks, he expects you with the same coutesy to agree.

Re: “Ink in the workplace seems more visible and accepted than ever, but the Triangle is not quite an art-for-all paradise yet

If I want to keep my part-time retail job, I can't have any visible ones. As a recent Breast Cancer survivor, I'm kind of wanting to be able to have some visible ones if I feel like it.

So sad--and ticked off--about Mark Van Ness' experience here in Raleigh. This town can and should do MUCH better than that.

Tattoos have crossed over into the mainstream and they're not going back. This is a legitimate form that is unique among the visual arts, and it deserves--and is beginning to get--the respect afforded to drawing, photography, printmaking, etc. Raleigh would do well to welcome it with open arms.

Re: “What lies beneath

I love swimming in the Eno quarry!! Please tell me where the crystal clear quarry is located! I've heard about it from other people and I'm dying to see it! I'm a little obsessed with clear water.

Re: “Poisoning our pets

Pine Sol kills fleas, ticks, & other pests as well. I treat my yard in early spring with a pesticide but then follow with monthly Pine Sol treatments. It does not hurt grass, plants, or flowers.

Re: “Poisoning our pets

Another pestisize called "permethrin" kill bugs but it also kill cats. Advertisers of "permethrin-10%" claims it is animal safe. but no sellers on eBay nor post any warnings on their listings for cats.

Re: “Über alleys

Loved your story. When I was a kid we'd go to Bethlehem, PA to visit my grandparents. The alleys behind their row house on Arcadia Street were a source of endless adventure. Nowadays, it's my 14 year old daughter who always wants to explore the alleys in Durham. While technically not an alley the cut through to Bull City Burger by the Methodist Church is great at night. We're always expecting those awesome spires to get struck by lighting and unleash legions of tormented souls.

Re: “Poisoning our pets

These comments have been extremely useful. Forgive me if I missed the answer in this discussion but I noticed that Sevin is available in different percent strengths. I am interested in dusting my large breed dogs (both more than 70lbs) with Sevin as it seems that even the most expensive and "canine-friendly" treatments continue to fail and I can't bear to watch them suffer any longer. Can anyone suggest what percent Sevin is most suitable?

I would be grateful for any help.

Re: “Poisoning our pets

What kind of Vet doesn't recognize an enlarged liver and simple blood work would have shown the liver enzymes were high. We had a hatch of ticks eggs to our surprise one morning in our bedroom and used seven dust in our home and on the dog beds to kill the ticks. 3 dogs all survived and my one dog had severe liver disease 10 years prior and she even was fine after the use of seven dust. So keep searching for another reason the dog got sick because it wasn't seven dust. Diamatacious Earth is the way to go but seven dust is also a great source for killing the bad bugs so please so stop trying to get it banned. I'm sorry you lost your dog and that it was so painful for you but it wasn't seven dust. Oh and I'd bet the neighbor was more informing you of the fireworks than asking for permission. Once you spend the money on them your not going to let them go to waist.
