some penalty.... $3/offense.  They can write that off as the cost of running business.

 

along that same line

I keep getting junk call offering reduced interest on my credit cards.

I tell them I already have zero interest from the bank.

They have zero interest in giving me a credit card. Poor bugger that steals my ID. It will be like "The Ransom of Red Chief".... Pay me to take it back.

I was so happy to see my bank's TV add the other night that said "You've got more money than you thought".

Very tiny-1 second "OAC" below.

BABY SHARK' IS BEING TURNED INTO A CEREAL, DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO

Parents who thought they'd heard the last of toddler anthem "Baby Shark" are out of luck.

 

"Baby Shark" will soon be swimming in bowls of milk as kids sing along to the popular song's "doo doo doo doo doo doo."

Kellogg's announced Friday that it is releasing a cereal in partnership with Pinkfong, the Korean entertainment brand that created the song behind the catchy kids tune.

The limited edition cereal will include berry-flavored loops and marshmallows, Kellogg's said in a news release.

It will be available in Sam's Club on August 17 while supplies last. Walmart will also carry the cereal in late September, Kellogg said in a statement to CNN.

The song is also being transformed into an animated series for Nickelodeon, a rep for the network told CNN.

The tune quickly soared in popularity after it launched on YouTube in November 2015 and has since garnered more than 3 billion YouTube views.

CORRECTION: This story has been updated to correct the number of times "Baby Shark" has been viewed on YouTube.

Any tips on how to eliminate them or at least slow them down?

 

Years ago, I bought a house that came with roaches.  I tried one or two insecticides that didn't work, then I got some Chinese insecticide chalk.  It comes in a pack of two sticks that look like normal blackboard chalk, but it's very poisonous.  You just make a line (it doesn't have to be thick or wide), and any creepy-crawly that walks across that line is soon dead.  The only exception was millipedes, which were unaffected by it.  I can only assume that all those feet mean that they step too lightly to absorb the insecticide.  

 

You can draw a line on the floor across a doorway, around a fridge or cupboard, or whatever that seems to be attracting them.  From personal experience, it works well on roaches and ants.  Ants were going for the cat food in the dish on the ground floor, so I drew a line across their suspected path (I may have drawn one around the dish as well), and when I came back in a couple of hours, there were maybe fifty dead or twitching soon-to-be-dead ants near the bowl.  They never came back.  Luckily, the cat didn't eat any of the ants.

 

The downside is that all the writing on the box was in Chinese, so if there were any warnings, I couldn't read them.  I did make sure to wash my hands immediately after handling it.  I found the insecticide chalk at the local Chinese-staffed variety/convenience store.  It's not likely that you'd find it at Home Depot or Canadian Tire.  The roaches never came back.

 

EDIT:  I'm away for a few days and whole new topics are happening!  Anyway, that chalk works.

Great chalk!  I have to try them.

I don't have kids so if it works as advertised, report back.

  we have grand/s. I try to keep things on the safer side.

We have enough fun stuff, black widows, scorpions, centipedes, rattlesnakes and don't forget that all vegetation has its protective measures. If it doesn't have thorns, it's most likely poison. 

 

  Wife's first day back. Told me to wake her at 6. She wanted to be there before 7.... Yeah, right

 6AM... "Honey, it's 6"

then "Honey, it's 6:30"

same at 7

 She crawled out at 7 o'clock plus. Coffee was cold by then

Good thing, all she is doing is getting ready for the kids to come Friday.

 

Sposed to rain. Gave a flash flood watch last night, for today. And then, it is sposed to be wet again tomorrow. 70%. I bet that if it does rain, it will be drizzle. If we get too much humidity/clouds, we don't get the heating/ lift to make storms...

My wife is a teacher and she has spent the last two weeks getting her room in order. She loves her job, teaches 4-5 year olds. I try not to complain about all she spends on the kids from her own pocket, it makes her happy. It is cool when a parent of an older kid says you have been our kids favorite teacher!

Mine teaches K - 4.  Her school defies the normal teacher to student ratio. I guess they have 1 teacher per 10 students.... and this is a public school.

 

it's all the paperwork that gets her. I promise to curb my rant here/now...

That's a nice ratio, 1-10. Around here most of the public schools would be around 1-20. 

My wife works at a private school, currently she has 15, she might pick up 1 or 2 more. She has a part time assistant, for any class over 12.

My daughter starts college in 3 weeks, nursing student. My wife gets a discount on my daughter's college tuition, almost 50% off, about 22k.....made my day!

I slip a hun to the each child's counselor each year and ask that she gives it to my kid's teacher that needs it the most for supplies. I hope that for the last 10 years they have. The band director get's $200 worth of water bottles for the summer from me. Marching starts August 5th for 8 hours a day on the asphalt.

It's always nice when the parents show their appreciation to the teachers. I will say that it's becoming less popular these days. Most parents show some interest. 

My oldest daughter was in the guard in high school. She had some 12 hour days, and yes, it's on the asphalt. I was amazed how tough those kids were. I thought the football players were the only kids getting beat up and bruised. A bag of granola bars and boxes of Gatorade is a life saver to them.

I sure pity our NJROTC units they grind ALL year long. I happened by the band hall today and saw that the cadets were out there on their own practicing. See the link for their successes.

You can also use boric acid powder, sprinkle it behind cabinets, down in crevices. It sticks to their legs/feet and they carry i back to their nests. When they clean themselves (which they do), they ingest it ant it will kill them. Not super fast, but it is safe to use around pets and kids.

Yes, fixed the typo... 🙄
