  • Happy Fourth of July.As we move into the holiday weekend, it is looking to be the perfect kind of weather to spend outdoors with family and friends.

    While we are enjoying the outdoors, we may be having a little bug enjoying us—the mosquito.  Let us take a look at ways to combat these pests.

    Female mosquitoes are blood feeders and may live for more than a month.  They generally require a blood meal before laying eggs.

  • Hello once again my friends. Here we are, rolling right along into summer, firing up the barbecues and grilling to our hearts desires. Everyone knows I love grilling just as much as the next person — maybe slightly more than that. I wanted to go a little different route though.

    Anyone who keeps up with my articles or has been to my cooking classes knows that instead of teaching a specific recipe, I tend to teach techniques far more. This article is going to be an example of that, sort of the teach to fish rather than giving a fish if you will.
