  • Damp conditions may bring temporary home invaders

    Several insects reliably appear in force following a series of spring rains, like we have experienced this year. For the most part, they are short-lived, so control measures are rarely needed. Here are a few that we may come across:

    Gnats

    Many species of non-biting gnats develop in moist decaying organic matter, temporary mud pools, and ponds. Hordes of adults can emerge suddenly. While they resemble mosquitoes, they lack the long beak of the closely-related blood feeders.

  • Experiencing the holy

    I love yoga -- pants.

    Soft, comfy, forgiving. They’re great to wear around the house or to bed. They’re especially great to wear before, during and after you stop at the store and bring home a vanilla creme bundt cake and maybe slice into it one or 12 times too many.

    Not that I’ve ever done that, but if I do, I’ve got the perfect pants for it.

    Yoga itself I don’t know well enough to love. I love the idea of it, of wearing the clothes and being in a space that’s usually beautifully lit and serene.

  • Health benefits of walking

    “The sum of the whole is this: walk and be happy; walk and be healthy. The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose.” –Charles Dickens

    Did you know that walking is the most popular physical activity among adults? This may be because it is so easy to do. Perhaps it is because there is no special equipment that is needed. Maybe it is because you can do it almost anywhere. Regardless of why it is the favorite, there are certainly many reasons why it is a good idea to walk.
