“Ariel is a beautiful 2 year old MAINE COON girl. She is used to living with other cats, but is scared of dogs. Ariel was adopted as a kitten but returned as an adult (through no fault of her own, she’s a sweetie), so she’s confused and used to having humans to love. She is looking for her forever home. If you are interested in adopting Ariel, please email [email protected]”
“Anakin is sweet, lovable and fun! Approximately 3 years old and about 50 pounds, he loves marrow bones, bully sticks and treats! He’s very food motivated, knows how to sit, and LOVES being outside, especially if he can chase squirrels and birds. He would make a great family dog, probably a good running partner, hiking, etc. – he thinks you chasing him is the best game ever! Anakin has shown no problems with kids, but has not been cat tested. He’s great on leash and is overall an easy boy. If you’re interested in adopting Anakin, please email [email protected] or complete the application at www.ruraldogrescue.com”

I am looking for a clinic to receive my weekly allergy shots. I was told by my previous allergist that I could find any willing medical clinic (not necessarily an allergy clinic), but have called around to many places who say I should only be looking for allergy clinics. Do any of your readers have a go-to clinic for weekly injections? I live near 14th and Florida – am looking for a place I can walk to or take a short metro ride to.”

From a press release:
“Karlsruhe – inspiration for Washington, D.C.’s street design
Did you ever wonder about D.C.’s extraordinary street layout?
It all began during Thomas Jefferson’s term as American ambassador to France (1785-1789). His interest in the arts and architecture made him travel extensively throughout France, Northern Italy and Germany. It was then that he also visited Karlsruhe, the northern gateway to the Black Forest. He was impressed with the fan-shaped layout of the city with all the main streets radiating from the baroque palace, which had been built some 70 years earlier.
As a matter of fact, Karlsruhe impressed Thomas Jefferson so much that he sent a sketch of the city’s layout to Pierre L’Enfant, a French-born architect who had served on General George Washington’s staff at Valley Forge. It was in 1791, when then President George Washington appointed him to plan the new capital, that he used Thomas Jefferson’s sketch of Karlsruhe as inspiration for the design of Washington, D.C.

I recently got a new bike and got my old one tuned up so it would be in good shape to sell. I decided I’d much rather donate it or give it away to someone in need. I wanted to see if there is anyone in the PoPville community in need–loosely defined, but perhaps someone who had their bike stolen and depends on it for transportation and just doesn’t have it in the budget to replace. It’s a women’s hybrid Fuji, with photo attached. Not sure of the size, but I’m 5’6″ and would fit someone well if they were around the same height or taller.”
Update: A lot of folks need bikes :( sorry if I didn’t respond right away, there was an overwhelming response.
