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?

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...

Laundry tip: Don't mix pants with fuzzy blanket

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...

It's time to ditch New Year's Resolutions
