  • COLUMN: A lady beetle invasion common this time of the year

    Some years are worse than others: I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles other years a few popped up here or there. Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in. On sunny days they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write. Presently they are displayed before me. I need not worry about them as they sun themselves; but the ones that collect indoors, well your best bet is a vacuum cleaner.

  • COLUMN: Weathering the storms life brings

    A storm coming through can sure change things in a hurry. Last week it was super-storm Sandy, a hurricane, arctic blast and Nor’easter all rolled into one. But it doesn’t take a super-storm to shake things up. A regular hurricane can do a lot of damage; a tornado can sweep through in a hurry. Wind and rain and snow, ice and bitter cold can alter a landscape quickly.
