    Gents, my comment was a joke about marriage in general and his devotion to her in particular. As has been said, don't let a nice thread about a fine person get locked by personal politics. Stop now. Dave

    Good evening my CC&C friends......... Glad you all liked the photos/screen shots.. As many may know, I bought a 'season pass' for the Digital Concert Hall and it has really been a joy and the reason that I installed that large screen in Music Hall... Great on your Berlin trip Roger....... It looks like the Philharmonie would be the place to check out if visiting there.... MKP, I can just hear those British accents Chris and I traveled to England in 2007.....my first time OUT of the USA and something I had only dreamed about most of my life... But, with both of us being musicians, the English have so much great music going on there... The Anglican church is full of great sounds.... We made sure to visit many cathedrals, hear wonderful organs we only have on recording etc.... The best part? We got to stay at Windsor Castle !!!!! How cool is that ??? We were able to see stuff that even the Brits don't have privy to !! (I have photos, and there is more to that story and how it came about...) MKP, the Union Jack was flying.............so, HRH was not there of course..... Ok, all for the moment... I'll check back later... .....Gary

    We have scorpions here in vegas... thankfully they are not like cockroaches and live mainly in smaller colonies. I use my 2w blue laser to fry them and any other "critters" I find.

    Grand Pappy used to love to whittle sticks of wood. I would sit and watch him while we talked about the world around us. He would take a common limb from a hardwood tree and whittle it down to the neatest rod about the size of a preschool pencil. Patiently he would wait for a carpenter bee to make its way into one of those holes. Quickly grandpa would insert whittled end snugly into hole and break it off making the perfect tomb for the Carpenter Bee. One by one he took down an army this way.

    I'm thinking the chemical is called borax? We treated the logs with something... Oh, it was called "Penatreat" as I recall. Supposed to kill them dead. Maybe it wears off, I don't know. http://www.sashco.com/products/penetreat/

    We had them HUGE in West Virginia two years ago, not as bad in 2015. If you squish them they stink and if you use a paper towel while squishing them, your hands stink. If they are in the house it may be best to capture them live and flush them.

    Boric Acid maybe? We use that for ants mixed with a little glucose. Boric Acid can be used to preserve wood and kill ants. Including carpenter ants. Borax and Borateen are primarily boric which is sourced in North America from the Death Valley area of CA.

    I had one of my guys go to a customers home to change out a defective bathroom fan only to find out that the motor fried because it was loaded (hundreds) with stink bugs that had come in from the roof vent because the mesh wasn't small enough to stop them.

    Hey....where you been?? Haven't seen you post all weekend....and yes, good moring... MKP :-) Busy this weekend. We ordered a ceiling fan for the bathroom and my wife didn't like the shade so I stripped it completely down, painted it, reassembled it and hung it in the bathroom. I also painted and installed 2 AC vents there as well. The commode tank got set and all the electrical switches, plugs and trim plates got changed. My wife noticed some grout cracking in the spare bathroom we're using so it got dug out and replaced. We also had to bowl 6 games yesterday. I had to show up to work this morning to take a break.

    What? Details, please! I have been fighting carpenter bees for several years now, they have ruined my deck! It looks like someone took a cordless drill and just made half-inch holes everywhere. My wife has some sort of home brew with water, honey and I think Dawn dish washing liquid, but the only thing that has really worked is for me to go out with my racquetball racquet and swat them out of the air. After killing a few, I swear the surviving bees see me coming and either fly away, or stay just out of arm's reach. I will call my parents tomorrow and see if I can post the name of the spray and the powder and where to purchase it. We spray twice a year and if any do bore holes, you get a special dispenser to puff the powder into the holes! Roger

    Emerald Ashborer devastated the ash trees here about 6 or 7 years ago. My mom probably has 100 dead stags in her 15 acre woods Roger The wood peckers did a number on our cedar siding since they came into the area to feed off the beetles.

    Asian Lady Bugs are the WORST!!! They bite you! then they stink like a potato bug when you swat them! I can't hardly mow the yard without getting bit by one, and in the fall when it cools off, they cover the entire side of the house trying to get warm. They get in the walls under the shingles, and they get in the house! They congregate in bunches in the corners on the ceilings and get into the light fixtures! The worst part of it all? I can remember donating money when I was a kid in church, because there was an kind of aphid that was attacking farmers crops and the Asian ladybugs were supposed to eat the aphids! You got a whole little white Chinese carryout box full of the damned things for a dollar, and I forked over money because it was for church! Roger

    We got the Ashbore beetle and I guess the stink bug is next. Asia is attacking us without lifting a finger.

    We've had the stink bugs for a couple years. Interestingly, I don't know that our Lady Bug problem has been as bad since the stink bugs arrival! We used to get thousands and thousands and thousands of Lady bugs in the house (winter). Now, I'm not sure if I've seen 3 of them. We do get dozens of the stink bugs and you're right... just remove them and lower the excitement level! We also get carpenter bees in the spring. So they are right around the corner. Nothing like watching them eat your house and have little you can do about it. We've tried spraying them midflight.... wife finally took to using a tennis racket and whacking them. It's kind of fun if you don't mind what happens when you squash them with your shoe.

    In California, this is what we call stink bugs... I dont know why they were called stink bugs other than the fact they put their rearend up in the air when threatened. They didnt really smell, at least as far as I noticed.
