I do find it regrettable that DDT has been suppressed from use in regions where malaria is a huge problem, though it does have some pretty bad effects in the food chain. What it really highlights though, is just how devastating some pesticides can be on the environment, and just how accessible these chemicals are.

See that other chemical on that can? I've reattached the image here:

Image

That's pyrethrum, a derivative from some plants in the the Chrysanthemum genus. It's a natural pesticide that acts like a neurotoxin on mostly cold-blooded animals. That can must be pretty old. Wanting to improve on the properties, a synthetic derivative of the chemical, permethrin, was also been developed. It is an excellent insecticide for soaking your clothing and other stuff in to kill mosquitoes on contact, and lasts about 6-weeks or through 6x washings. Mosquitoes die on contact. Great stuff for putting on your camping gear, and it also isn't toxic to humans in the concentrations that you'll use (0.5%), and the way you'll use it (i.e. it won't harm you through contact).

The downside to the chemical is that it is extremely toxic to aquatic life and invertebrates. Dump some of that insecticide -- that you can get on Amazon.com -- into the water supply and watch it wreak havoc on the ecosystem, killing fish, bugs, and all kinds of water-life. Oh, and it'll kill your cats too, especially because they'll ingest it while grooming. I got some of that stuff for a now-cancelled trip to a very bug-infested region, and have been at pains to make sure that my friends make use, and dispose, of it improperly.

So also be aware of the non-outlawed stuff. We have access to very potent, even if not notorious, chemicals that can devastate ecosystems if misused.

Fishy, If you get Link TV (through satellite or cable), they have World Music every so often, in half hour bits, with videos to go along with some of the most awesome and eclectic music. I've heard quite a bit of the Klezmer music (notably, the Klezmatics) and so much more. I like these half hours well enough that I have my TV set up to record them all.
Not only the music, but they carry extremely good documentaries on all sorts of subjects, and unbiased news from around the world. Also, the occasional movie, of the type we don't get to see through 'regular' TV. Very good stuff...

That was my bottle of Apple Pie TurtleBurp had at the M&G

Someone kept going back to camp and refilling it, over and over and over and over........


Good old fashioned Borax, sprinkle it all over everything, mattress, box springs, top to bottom, floors,
nooks and crannys, and vacuum it up.
Do this several times. And add it to the washer. Make sure nothing goes untouched with the stuff.

HAPPY HAPPY TinyMystick!!!!!!!!

Good Morning, all!!
Looks like the bar is ready for a party. Thanks, Yggy!

Some of that yummy Apple Pie sounds about right for starts. Now, where's that barrel, Tink?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TINYMYSTIC!!!

hey Tink!! are you coming up for the train party?

so my research is saying boric acid/borax does not really work on bed bugs, in that they don't have mouths the chew, and don't "preen". It would kill them if they'd eat it, but they don't. Rubbing alcohol is surfacing as the best low toxic thing, other than sticky tape and some sort of bean leaves, that have spines that catch them........dang it.

Yes, it's hard to be so far apart.
But, I am still looking around Reno for property. Someday, it will happen.

Happy birthdays to Yiggy and Aserendipity and our girl of the day TINY!!! And of course anyone else I missed in my negligence... and Whoa! but I've been negligent lately! ...Amongst a host of other nasty things... proof of which may be found in the fact this message first posted in a LOST thread... (although in retrospect, that may be kind of appropriate)

I started off Tiny's birthday by finding an appropriate body to encase in cement to throw off the pier with Mr. & Mrs. Mydearfriend in a couple of weeks. Seemed like a very, VERY good start to the day.

Unfortunately, my son sauntered into the kitchen area a few minutes ago, inquiring as to why I had a naked man on the livingroom floor. His enthusiasm for our project aside, he totally burst my Tiny's birthday balloon with the news that the municipal docks were removed from the water weeks ago.

Aarrrgghhhh. Of course! It's almost winter. Of course the piers are gone.


So I guess we're just going to have to have a fling with this guy from the shore. :roll:
GYPSY! We need your opinion on this. STAT!!

Yggy
It's Klezmer, aka "Jewish Wedding Music". It developed in eastern Europe, so there's overlap with Gypsy and Russian music. Especially as musicians, seeking to make a living, would play for both jews and goyim.

thanks Fishy. I had heard very similar, in a couple of far flung pubs in northern and eastern Estonia. I had no way of asking or understanding, but the music was great!!! Near the shores of lake Piepsi...........ah, muj ilus sobrana.............

Delle, you had me laughing out loud on that one. Fishy, you got it so right with the Klezmer definition. FJ, pears are us. Yg, if weren't so serious and costly, I'd be scratching all day. Hi Patsh, some sis you got there! Elorrum, "jacks or better" really gave me a lift! Elliot, how far are you from Middletown?

Had a great yesterday soaking at Harbin! So rested and relaxed on the tennis court this morning that we won both sets!

Have a great rest of the weekend, kiddies.

Marty, I'm about 20 or 25 miles north of Middletown. And of course I know about Harbin Hot Springs, but I have never gotten around to go there. I'm receiving their e-newsletter now -- lots of interesting seminars. The photos on the web site look like it's a lovely place. Good house rules too -- cell phones must be left in the car, no talking in the meditation pool, and such. I understand there are hiking trails, and I would probably head for those first. But I have fabulous trails here in Clearlake, in a State Park just a mile or two away, so that's where I often walk. I know a lady in Santa Rosa who likes the place and I'm sorta hoping she will drag me there -- next time she's between boyfriends, I suppose. :D

You're not the only one wishing Delle lived closer... a couple of her "two-week-visits" turned into a year each, way back when I lived in the hills! *sigh* (Well, I should talk... my "two-week-visit" here started in 1970...) :mrgreen:

My work schedule has changed, and that 'hang out day' can be at your convenience. Just let me know when's good, and I'll be there!! A couple of days' visit to Tucson is in the works soon, (maybe early November) and we could even work something out with that, since you're between here and there!

Meanwhile, :coffee: :coffee: :coffee: and finish waking up.... :D


GOOD MORNING ALL!!!
And, a belated Happy Birthday to Jax Dee, from the 25th!!!

TinyMystic, hope your birthday was a gas. And belated happy to you :coffee:

Elorrum, go have fun today! Might make the gauntlet a little more bearable later this week.

Yggy, now you can give everyone a proper stink eye!

Trilo, those hash browns look really good right now. I'm a little wobbly myself this am. Trying to get my ass up to put some ribs in the crockpot for this eve...

Hope everyone has a great Sunday. I'm thinking couch potatoe and some movies with my son today.
