its headed our way
please give us those east side winds and rain
well take whatever rain it will give us

my rain water tanks are getting low so we need
some rain at least one inch please
have to rush as im laying down some new water
lines connecting some of my tanks together
guess i had better hurry up today and tomorrow
and get them done

if you see this bug in your garden then youre in trouble

its called the silver blister beetle
it has cantheridin which can blister your skin
dermatologists use this to blister up warts
see my blog on my wife she and the blister beetles
at my 9/22/10 blog

these beetles can devastate your tomatoes, potatoes, peppers
very quickly
when you walk into the garden they all fall to the ground and
hide in the mulch where you cant see them
all you see is plants without any leaves

you know there bad when the chickens wont come anywhere
near them

bad bugs bad bugs except the larva do eat grasshopper eggs
so bad things can be good things at the same time

nonetheless will cover my plants with flour or kaolin clay to
clog their mouth pieces so they cant eat the plants
it usually works

thanks sis for this
its so hot and dry in texas that
in longview that mosquitoes have been spotted carrying canteens
in lubbock the chicken farmers are giving the chickens crushed ice
so they wont lay hard boiled eggs
in lake palestine they caught a 20 lb catfish that had ticks on it
in bryan a fire hydrant was seen bribing a dog
and the baptists are sprinkling, the methodists are using wet wipes,
the presbyterians are giving out rain checks, and the catholics
are praying to turn the wine back into water
its so hot here ...
