Yesterday Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck NY.  But did you know there were other things going on in the area?  For instance the church I grew up in (that my parents still faithfully attend) had their annual picnic.  My Dad was the main entertainment….

After the picnic Michael and I went over to my Mom & Dad’s house to talk gardening for a while.  We also took down Michael & Angela’s photo gallery which was hanging at Barista’s in the Hudson Valley Mall.  Last but not least, we stopped for a slice of the best pizza on earth before we left to head back home.

What did you do this weekend?

I got this email from a friend of mine today.  I’m not sure if it works or not, but it’s worth a try!!


Apparently it doesn’t work, but does anyone know tricks that DO work??

How to Kill Mosquitos

I can’t wait to try this in the summer!


I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next year I filled?a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well.. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children’s swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don’t leave home without it….


OUR FRIEND’S COMMENTS: I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors.

It works – in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it

cost me $1.89. It really doesn’t take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not

as expensive to use as the can of Bug-spray you buy that doesn’t last 30 minutes.

So, try this, please. It will last a couple of days. Don’t spray directly on a wood

door (like your front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window

frames, and even inside the dog house.

Now these are Good Mosquitos!!!


Do you have any keep mosquitoes away or kill mosquito strategies?
