How many are enough?

"You're probably wondering why I called you all here this evening..."






Here comes Winter &...MICE!

It turns out, mice hate the smell of peppermint. Everything we humans like about it – the sharpness, the coolness, the sweetness, the menthol – makes them want to turn tail and run the other direction, making it an ideal natural repellant. Bulk Herb Stores’s Shoshanna’s Kitchen first turned us on to the idea, and she recommends harnessing peppermint’s power in three ways:

  1. Peppermint Plants
  2. The easiest way to prevent a mouse invastion in the first place is to post peppermint plant sentries around your home. Plant as many as you want outside your home for protection andand for nice, fresh peppermint leaves to use in your cooking.

  3. Peppermint Sock
  4. This method is easy for when you want a quick solution. Drop some dried peppermint in a sock and tie it off, then place the socks around your home near holes, gaps, or any other places you think pests might be gathering.

  5. DIY Spray
  6. Shoshanna’s favorite method is an easy-to-make spray. Boil some water, then steep some dried peppermint the same way you would if you were making tea or coffee. When you get a nice, rich concentration, strain out the grounds and allow the mixture to cool. Then, simply transfer it to a plastic spray bottle and spray away! Use it as an additional cleaning spray in cabinets where you’ve found evidence of rodent activity, saturate your closets, and generally spray wherever you think you need a little repelling peppermint power.
Of course, sometimes you need a little extra power, and for that, you can turn to extra concentrated versions of peppermint via peppermint oil. The Kitchn recommends using peppermint oil as you spray, similarly to Shoshanna’s Kitchen. Other people, like How To Get Rid Of Mice.com, recommend saturating cotton balls in peppermint oil and leaving them around your home wherever you want the mice to leave.
Even better? It’s not just mice that will run away from peppermint. It repels aphids, cabbage looper, flea beetles, squash bugs, whiteflies, ants, mosquitoes, and bees! And, best of all, it’s a simple, cheap, humane, and all-natural method for ridding your home of pests.
It’s so good to know that we have all-natural options for dealing with mice and other pests! Have you ever tried using peppermint this way? Do you know of any other no-kill or gentle methods for dealing with an infestation, or do you prefer old-fashioned traps?  Do you have any tips?  Leave it in a comment below and thanks for dropping by!!!

Monday's Music Moves Me





Music on World off

Welcome aboard our 204th week of "Monday's Music Moves Me"!

notes




I follow you,  follow me!  Now let's ROCK! 

NOW WITHOUT FURTHER ADO 
I have some lyrics for you first.  I hope you enjoy.


God Bless America

Dear LORD,
There was nothing wrong with our education system...
Until someone came along and tried to "force-fix" it.
School lunches fed our children fine...
Until someone came along and decided to nix it.
We had the strongest militia in the world
Until someone wanted to gut it
OUR White House was open to public tours
Until someone decided to shut it
We had freedom of speech and religion
And every right to defend ourselves
We had open information on 43 presidents
Now #44 locked it up, and hid it on the shelves
We had ONE NATION UNDER GOD
Our constitution and our Bill of Rights
Until someone LIED to get his job
And now we've got every reason to fight
We had a sovereign nation, strong and proud
And RESPECT at all our borders
Now the border patrol cannot speak aloud,
And will be arrested for following orders
We had people with content of character within
Now at each other's throats 'cause of the color of their skin
We need to bring Jesus back, and make him WELCOME here
America's gone to HELL, and it's a shame and a SIN
GOD BLESS AMERICA
These are not the lyrics to the song below: "I'm An American II".  These are present ponderings.  HOW can one POSSIBLY express how they really feel about the State of the Union today?
