   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 Suggested Reading  I recently said that I had started The Girl On The Train. It is full of surprises that you don't see coming. Glad I picked it up.

   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.

   Gram77  I've written all suggestions down and am greatful for all suggestions.

   Balogreene  I'm forwarding this to my sister. We battle them every year!

   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.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  I have a really neat friend with one exception. I usually am the driver when we are out and about. She was in a terrible accident about 5 years (she was the driver ) and ever since she has become a screecher, always yelling "watch out" (which makes me look and there is never anything except me jumping on the brake ) and saying someone is backing out!! I swear there will be an accident unless I blind fold her. She went to a doctor who recommend she counsel to help her with this or she would relive her accident forever. The killer to this, she says she doesn't need help. Grrrrrr

   Surfhut  I used to be like your friend. The driver that I drove crazy like your friend does you was my son. He finally told me, straight up, that I needed to do whatever I needed to do to "cut it out" because it as affecting his love of being with me. Jerked the slack right out of me and I addressed my problem. Hope this helps, Gram

   Balogreene  Gram, I can't help. I'm your friend (in bad weather ). I try so hard, and actually, I don't vocalize. But, I am still scared stiff, and it's been 30 years since I spun out on ice.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I was just on the movie site when an author's name popped up; J.R, Lansdale. I checked him out and his books really sound like they are well worth reading. Has anyone here read his works? What's your opinion? I've got my eye on The Thicket.

   StormCnter  Gran, I'm a big Lansdale fan and have read all his books. They're quick reading, entertaining and not great literature, but you'll enjoy them.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Feel like fussing.......did any one see Melonie Griffith on the Red Carpet? Whoever did her plastic surgery should be sued. She looks older than before she had the work done!

   StormCnter  Gram, she looks bizarre, doesn't she. I always wonder if those celebrities who have all that surgery and botox ever look in a mirror afterward. We cannot stop time with money. Fuss away. I'm with your opinion.
