New week, new you, new Bwoglines.
Happening in the World:
This Thursday a law went into effect in Italy requiring all vehicles to have a device that will alert drivers if a child is left in the back seat. After multiple hot car deaths in 2018, this law was proposed and passed quite quickly. Alerts vary on the devices but include visual and audio cues as well as smartphone messages. As stated earlier this week, way to go, Italy! (CNN)
Happening in the US:
The turkeys are back with a vengeance in Toms River, New Jersey where there is a growing number of reports of acts of turkey violence. From attacking people to pecking at cars and roofs it seems that these turkeys will stop at nothing to get what they want. The question now is what exactly do they want and when will they be satisfied? (HuffPost)
Happening in New York:
Yesterday morning this year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrived in New York City. The 77-foot Norway Spruce weighs in at just around 14 tons and hails from the Village of Florida, New York in Orange County. Stop by to see her in all her trimmings at the tree lighting ceremony on December 4th. (CBS New York)

A Dog I Met This Week:
This week I traveled five hours home to the great granite state of New Hampshire for fall break and I was welcomed at the bus station by none other than my dog, Sarge! Sarge is a nine-year-old Standard Poodle and his favorite activities include chasing rabbits, eating grass, and sleeping. I miss him already!
