The reason crickets sing and other trivia
The crickets arrived last week. And, by Jiminy, it’s good to have them back. Crickets mean that summer is at its peak. That it’s warm enough to nap on the grass, without needing a goose down comforter. And you can wish upon a star, too, while listening to the cricket concerto....

Teflon's great, but where does it go to?
Consumer poll: Who of you cook with non-stick cookware? Everybody, right? Now here is why this is a consumer poll. You’ve noticed that the Teflon gets thinner and thinner, and then finally disappears from the bottom of your cooking pots, right? Have you ever stopped to wonder where...

Ladybugs rescue plum tree from aphid attack
Last week we were the proud parents of 1,500 ladybugs. That is because we also were the unhappy enablers of a gazillion aphids. Actually, aphids are measured in gigabytes. With the emphasis on bites. For about 30 years, aphids have been our biggest garden crop. Slugs run a distant...

Too hot or cold? Choose your weather battles
As I write this, the thermometer is sitting at 99.75 degrees. This cannot be a good thing. It cannot be a good thing at all when you have to use your meat thermometer to figure out how hot the patio pavers are. Hello, Okefenokee Swamp, we seem to have your weather. We’d be happy...

Memorial Day: A happy-sad holiday
Memorial Day is one of those happy-sad holidays. We are way happy that school is out for summer and that we can get outside and play in the yard. Because there is only a slight chance of snow in June, July and August. Maybe not July. But we’ve seen shovelable snow in June and frost...

From longtime fan: Pro wrestling is for real
Our family supports the arts: art shows, music, theater and musical theater. So when a can’t-miss-it opportunity came up in Bismarck a couple of weeks ago, well, we couldn’t miss it. We went to a World Wrestling Entertainment show in Bismarck. WWE. You know, those pro wrestler...

The differences between clippers and staplers
Are you a paper-clip person or a staple person? Do you clip your stacks of paper together with those magnificent spirals of steel, or do you perforate your papers with those vicious points of malevolence? See, there are two kinds of people in the world: clippers and staplers. Clippers...

Laundry tip: Don't mix pants with fuzzy blanket
One of the greatest inventions in the universe has to be that lint roller pickie-uppie thingy. You know those things. They are like a triple-wide roll of masking tape on a stick. And everything that is stuck to you gets stuck to the masking tape on a stick when you roll it across...

Rascally rabbit not welcome in flower bed
Last fall, we planted a bazillion spring flower bulbs. There were tulips surrounding the baby’s breath. Daffodils beside the garden wall. Hyacinths hiding the window wells. And something we did not even know the name of, which screamed, “Plant me beside the downspout!” One-hundred...

Goose legends foster the idea of adopting a gosling
Have you seen the goose video clips that have been all over the Internet lately? There was a mega-flock of Canadian geese in the Prairie Pothole Region near Woodworth, N.D. Somebody from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was taking photos of the flock, and it took him 15 pictures...

It's time to ditch New Year's Resolutions
It is mid-January, and time to throw those New Year’s resolutions under the bus. Really, how much longer can you lay off donuts and chocolate? Or how many more evenings are you going to spend at the gym, running like a hamster on that treadmill? Easter is early this year, and you’ll...

The great lobster liberation, well almost
It all began when the Big New Supermarket advertised they would have live lobsters for sale on New Year’s Eve. Some of you were thinking, “Yum! Get out the cooking pot and melt that butter!” Others of us were thinking, “Oh, poor lobsters.” OK, one of us was thinking, “Poor...

Kit-Cat Clock: An American cultural icon
The coolest thing in my kitchen right now is a Kit-Cat Clock. No, actually Kit-Cat is the second-coolest thing. The coolest thing is the box of chocolate fudge, mint truffles and pecan pralines left over from Christmas. Those candies call to me, late at night, when everybody is asleep....
