Learn to let go, dammit

Very useful information for city dwellers moving to the country: How to remove a tick.

(In New York City, the disagreeable parasites who get hold of you and don't let go usually work in the banking industry and are considerably easier to spot.)

Too bad they don't make Frontline for human beings. :-)  The indoor/outdoor dog and the indoor cat are tick-free, but I've already pulled a couple of the little buggers off me in the last week - romping in the woods around here is irresistible, but some additional care is clearly called for.
