We started a small 10 gallon aquarium this year. It’s only got goldfish in it, but they are lively and pretty and I like having fish in the house. So today I needed to pick up a bottle of fish food. Of course, I could not go into the pet store and not look at all the fish they have for sale. I ended up buying three little tetras to join my goldfish. They eat the same food and they should get along OK with the goldfish without territory issues. Its kind of fun to bring home new fish and add them to the tank.

I learn something new everyday. Today I learned that there are home remedies for fleas, ticks and mosquitoes that will keep them off of your dogs. Go figure. Of course if I mention this to my wife, she will tell me that she already knew it and I will laugh because she probably did. However, I like that I learned it on my own. Did you know that if you put garlic in a dogs food every day, it will keep fleas away from the dog? Black walnut hulls given in pill form from the nutrition store will keep all three away from your pet as well.
I think that is so cool. We have a ceder filled bed for our little dog already, and now I know why my wife bought it. Herbal shampoos can also help with killing and keeping fleas off of your pets as well, without having to pay top dollar for expensive pet shampoos. That is really amazing. You never know what you are going to learn each day and each day never ceases to surprise me. I think it is time to go look up more herbal remedies and see what else I can find that will not only save us money, but keep chemicals out of our house.
Sometimes a guy needs a break. You just have to walk away from all the daily drama and all the problems and go fishing. My buddy, Claude, called me up last night and suggested a trip out on the lake in his bass boat. That was the perfect excuse for me. So today we’ve been fishing. Caught a bunch – let them go, of course – and just chilled for the day. What a good break that was for me – I needed this.
This summer is going to be very buggy. There are already some voracious mosquitoes buzzing my yard and the 17 year cicadas are here this year. Or is it the 13 year cicadas? I don’t know which brood is here, but they are loud and crawling all over everything – trees, chimneys, and doghouses. I’ve also seen a variety of bees and wasps, several sizes of ants, and this morning a flock (if that’s the proper names for a group of these) lady bugs.
I can’t help but to wonder if this is true or not. I mean just looking at the picture, how in the world could this couple not know?? What do you think?
An old man and woman were on the way to Greenville , NC and stopped at McDonald’s in Farmville just off of 264 East bypass last Saturday and did not know that they hit this deer!!
Someone in McDonald’s had to tell them …the old man said he noticed that the car was starting to run a little hot the last few miles.
