brit1.jpgHappy bug free National Help a Horse Day!

Supposedly from all the reports we’re seeing lately, this is another bad year for bugs. In the West, they say we will have more bugs because it was a wet winter. In the East, they say we will have more bugs because it was a longer, wetter winter. Whatever. All I know is that I’m seeing an early bunch of ants, spiders, earwigs and flies at my house, and I hate bugs.

And my neighbor just bought two adorable dwarf pygmy goats: Tommy and Rosamund (so named by his five-year-old, Emma). The sheep that they did have are now on their way to becoming Easter lamb dinner.

California Journey, CJ for short, a German shorthaired pointer prevailed as the winner of the Best in Show award on Tuesday night. He is a 3-year-old male and the third dog of his breed to take the top prize. A few fun facts about CJ. He goes by the nickname “The Prince” at home. His favorite snack: chicken and carrots.

Hey, we have a product like that!

From Todd Heft @ Big Blog Of Gardening

Diatomaceous Earth, derived from the fossilized remains of Diatoms, is a deadly weapon against many garden pests. Unlike chemical pesticides, it poses no risk for kids, pets, wildlife or you.
