We drove down to Boerne, TX for the union of Monica and Richard. We had a great time at their wedding. I'm not sure what was my favorite part. Maybe the flowers. They were lovely. The wedding ceremony was outside. It was cool and breezy. Quite a change from the previous days.
I actually had some fun dancing at the wedding, but we didn't get any clear photos. It had been a long time since I'd been to a wedding. It was a blast.

Studies are coming out saying that overuse of antibiotics plays a role in obesity and food allergies. If we don't kill all our good bacteria, we do better. Fecal transplants (which are basically bacterial transplants) are going to be commonplace soon. They seem to cure problems caused by eradication of all our normal gut bacteria.
Now, I'm not saying we shouldn't use antibiotics, nor am I recommending you go lick a toilet. What I'm saying is that people are paranoid. Antibacterial gels and soaps aren't really necessary. Just wash with soap and water. I'm not sure what people think they are going to catch from toilet seats or other random things. I actually had a couple of ladies tell me they won't buy spices in bulk because what if someone touched them, or breathed on them, or cross-contaminated them. What? So they go to some specialty shop and pay extra because only the employees--not the general public--touch and breathe on the spices. Whatever.
