Ginger Tea, Rex Style!

One of the nurses at Rex offered to make Jenni some ginger tea after her C-section to soothe her tummy. It peaked my curiosity because I didn't see any in the galley. This is how it's made.

Heat some ginger ale in the microwave, not too hot and it will still be bubbly. Add a tea bag and let it steep for a few minutes. Enjoy!

Who da thunk it?

DOT Electronic Signboard Update

Well maybe the DOT read my Blog? They have changed the time to get to Duke Street to 5-9 minutes. Guess they didn't want us speeding too much, eh? Today it took me at least 6 minutes and I was driving at least 70 mph. I had to keep up with traffic, right?

Really now, DOT??

The NC Dept of Transportation must be trying to get us to speed on the highways these days! There is a sign on the Durham Freeway just before Alexander Drive that has had estimated arrival times for Duke Street and 15-501 on there for the past couple of weeks. Usually when there isn't any delays, it states 4-8 minutes to get to Duke Street. Being the curious person that I am, I timed how long it took me along with how many miles it is.

I was suprised to find that it is 6.5 miles from that sign to the Duke St. exit and it took me about 6 minutes to get there.Tthe speed limit is 65 for about half the way and 55 the rest of the way. So I figure it averages out to 60 miles an hour, which is a mile a minute. Minimum time to get there should be 6 - 7 minutes. So how can one get there in 4 minutes? You gotta drive 97 miles per hour! Wonder if Mr State Trooper would like that idea?
