A close-up of the photo below.
These "kissing balls" or pomanders lined the aisle for a recent wedding in Benson, NC., along with multi-colored rose petals. I wish the foxglove below was growing in my garden! It was in the yard of the wedding facility in Benson. It is one of my favorite flowers.
I have a question for you. I was driving along this morning on my way to the lab for blood work and I wondered......since our internal body temperatures hover around 98.6, why do we begin to feel too hot when the air temperature reaches about 80*? I realize that 80* is not too hot for some people, but I am referring to the point at which your body perceives heat.Why don't we feel coolish/normal until the air temperature reaches 98.6? Some of you scientific types may know the answer to that, and if it is a truly stupid question, please don't let on.
Speaking of blood work, how can the doctor expect anyone to give a urine sample when she has been fasting since midnight and she already voided when she got out of bed?
