    Fwiw-Oil of lemongrass helps keep deer flies away. I don't miss them nor the blackflies.

    People in general, my brother's grandson died at age 19 about a month ago, he was working out of town called in sick on a Monday, no call on Tuesday Wednesday morning they entered his hotel room and found him dead. I got so pissed about people asking about the toxicology report, wanting to know how the young man died like they wanted to hear what they thought he died of. Sorry to disappoint the young man died from undiagnosed diabetes. So incredibly sad 19 and dead.

    So sorry to hear that. My nephew was diagnosed at 12 . We had an adult friend that was found in his apartment dead, just a block away. He was twenty 25 and had battled it for many years.

    Tired of all these commercials with their gender neutral actors. I can't tell if you are a male or female. We get it. You want to look inclusive and cool but the force feed is getting old.

    Eye exams....they dilated my eyes and I always have an extreme reaction. It disorients me, makes me qeezy, and gives me the feeling of my brain being jittery. Then add to it that it literally last ALL day. They give me dark dark light filters to fit on my glasses that help just a bit indoors.
    Yesterday was especially bad and finally new Doc says we can give you a weaker version. My entire day was shot. I had a big change,, no more just driving long distant glasses, because one eye is far and the other near sighted. Now reading glasses because I can barely read anything now.
    Of course my only concern was hunting. He said no glasses needed for hunting because my dominate eye is good for lining up my bead and barrel and deer are big enough target. Though he just recommends using scopes and adjust to eye glasses off..

    Sorry I am very particular about tomato juice, will only enjoy in a single serving container, a bottle of it seems to get "flat" very fast, the flavor goes away. Plus it's V-8 all kinds of juices, straight tomato juice is not my favorite.

    The crap humans are doing around the world is idiotic. Killing each other. Fighting over money and religion. For being so smart, we really are stupid as hell.

    So the string of fowel mouthed words , bad enough even I won't abreiviate is long, after how I found my car. It’s been a few days since I've driven it. The mice went in and literally destroyed it. All glove compartment paper work chewed then covered in piles of droppings. Every surface covered 8n droppings the freezer bags filed with urine and droppings,underseats chewed to hell. I nearly puked . That's the inside,do I even need to mention the engine.
    Or the Smell eminating from the Gator as well.

    A H scientists want deer on birth control ,why aren't they working on that for the worlds rodent population!!!
