   BirdsNest  I have a hubby and some days he gets on my last good nerve, but then he says something so totally sweet all is forgiven. Sometimes I forget he is so ill.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I have a good friend that works at Books-A-Million and she gave me an advanced copy of Lisa Genova's new book Inside The O'Briens. Books-A-Million often get advanced copies and was I ever glad to get this one. Every one of her books are excellent, but this one really touched my heart. Get it folks, you won't be sorry.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Forget my list of "want to read". Just happened to find the next one for sure! The title is The Alphabet House by Adler-Olsen (can't remember the first name ). Good reviews and a good summary on Amazon. Check it out.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Quiet afternoon and TCM had a musical with Grayson, Keel, Miller, Skelton and the dancing Champions. Sure do miss those old musicals.

   StormCnter  That was probably "Lovely to Look At", which was known as "Roberta" on stage. I've never seen it, but with the exception of Red Skelton, I love all those names you listed. I'll bet that was fun.

   Richdet  Gram, TCM is programming during the day tomorrow (Tuesday ) a tribute to Cole Porter musicals, including Born to Dance, Silk Stockings, DuBarry Was a Lady, Kiss Me Kate, and High Society. You may already know that, but if not, you heard it here first.

p.s. I have TCM to thank for knowing today is Joan Crawford's birthday. Today's daytime programming is a birthday tribute to her. (Wish I had the time today to check out "Flamingo Road." That sounds good, partly because some favorites, Zachary Scott and Sydney Greenstreet, are in it. ) They did a similar tribute for Robert Donat last week.

   Richdet  Well you got your day off to a good start, Gram. I think you are taking the gold in the movie wall honors today.

   StormCnter  I agree with Rich, Gram. You didn't even need that second cup of coffee. Come back when the chores are done.

   Gram77 posted on Household Hints  I guess this goes here. Each Spring I fight tiny black ants. I've tried everything you folks talked about here and even called in a company. I still continue to need help and I was wondering what you folks thought of this latest suggestion that came from my Cross Stitch Club. One of the members said to spread Peppermint oil at all doors ways and kitchen window sills outside. She claims they won't cross this. Thoughts please.

   Gerty  I've heard the same thing, Gram. This year, the ants are from the deepest part of hell. They are everywhere! I've given up trying to poison them. Now I just step on them.

   Escaped commieny  I have posted before about Fossil Shell Flour, aka Diatomaceous earth, the fresh water type from Perma-Guard, Inc. Don't use the stuff from the box stores, you need food grade to protect your pets.
Any critter with a skeleton is destroyed, I had five types of ants in my front garden, little brown sugar ants, red biters, fire ants worse biters, they leave a welt, black ones and brown house eaters.
I think it was Bettiejo that left a whole list of stuff, things like cornmeal, would have to scroll threw the pages.
I also mentioned this stuff is already in your flour, biscuit boxes, it won't hurt people but sure knocks out the critters.

   StarFire  Four years ago ants were climbing our second floor deck to get to the kitchen. We were running out of things to try when a lady overheard us in the pest control area of a Kentucky Walmart. She said to try Terro liquid. It works!

The active ingredient is borax but it works better than any of the borax based DIY techniques. You put one drop on a tiny square of cardboard. For 24-48 hours you will see more ants. Then they suddenly disappear. If you have pets or little kids, cut a length of PVC pipe and use a straw to put the drop far inside so they can't reach it. We hid ours behind the trash can next to the kitchen door.

   BirdsNest  Starfire-HELLO!! Been missing your posts.
Terro works great, they drink the liquid and go back to the nest to share, poof all gone. It becomes a spectator sport watching the nasty little critters "belly-up-to-the-bar" sort of thing. They flock to the liquid.
Diatomaceous Earth is good as well, only not fast acting. You can use that inside of cabinets or out of the way places, any insect that walks through it is at risk of shedding its skeleton to dust. I use it for spiders.

   StarFire  BirdsNest - Thanks for the shout-out. I've been offline a lot lately. Had the great-grandkids for a week at Christmas. Then the nasty cold weather hit and did a number on my arthritic knees. I feel like I spent two months curled up in fetal position with a jar of icy-hot. Now that the weather is warmer and my knees are feeling better, I’ve crawled out of my cave.

   Bettijo  48 ants dislike this
I used a small amount of Sugar and Yeast (baking yeast from grocery store ). The ants take these dry grains of food stuffs into their food chamber. This chamber is often deep within the nest. When they store these two ingredients together, the Yeast becomes active and eats the Sugar. The byproduct of this activity is Co2 gas. Co2 is odorless and it kills the entire nest. Best of all... No Poisons or Chemicals.
