What an amazing trip Stanley has been on these last couple of weeks. He just traveled to to meet some new friends in Ashland, Kentucky. He had great fun With Angie and her family doing all sorts of things. Boy was he glad to just get a chance to sit back and read the paper before he headed out on his next adventure. He can't wait to see where it leads him next! Next stop Fountain, Colorado.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
