Keep Mosquitoes at Bay

This was sent to me by a friend.
I haven't tried it yet,but the little buggers are here!
So I will be picking up some to try.

"I was at a deck party a while 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."

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."

Give this a try. 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 Mosquitoes!!!
It's Earth Friendly too

Psychology 101

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result ... all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment... with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes a step towards the stairs he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask? Because in their minds...

“That is the way it has always been!”

This, my friends, is how Congress and older companies operate... and is why, from time to time, all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.

Tear Open Those Gifts! (part 9 ~ final installment) Whew!

We all gathered the next day to watch the Mr and Mrs open their gifts.
You'll notice we're just a tad drained.....

with the exception of baby Devin!
He was still on full :)

They received so many nice things including that all necessary money.
Did you see the embroidered dish towels?
You just don't get things like that much anymore..
I tried to sneak them in my purse but that
Mrs Newton has hawk eyes I tell ya!!

Then we devoured leftovers from the reception....
it was all sooo delish!

So if you've stayed through ALL my posts I thank you!
You have some endurance!

I will leave you with two photos; the bouquet and
