Every year my friends and I get together to do this wonderful event. Last year we walk for over 8 hours straight and over 12 miles for this amazing cause. It is about that time again and would like to remind people of this amazing organization. I'm not going to ask that you donate directly to me but to a great team full of survivors! I will be updating via twitter during the entire event to let you know how we are doing and on the morning after the event will upload all the great pictures.If you would like to donate please go HERE.
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
