- It's about that time folks - so thought I'd send out this reminder!!!!

OK, mosquitos... prepare to be repelled!!!!!
Use Bounce Fabric Softener Sheets...Best thing ever used in Louisiana..just wipe on & go... Great for Babies
Bob, a fisherman, takes one vitamin B-1 tablet a day April through October . He said it works. He was right. Hasn't had a mosquito bite in 33 years. Try it. Every one he has talked into trying it works on them. Vitamin B-1( Thiamine Hydrochloride 100 mg.)
If you eat bananas, the mosquitoes like you, - something about the banana oil as your body processes it. Stop eating bananas for the summer and the mosquitoes will be much less interested.
This is going to floor you, but one of the best insect repellents someone found (who is in the woods every day), is Vick's Vaporub.
Plant marigolds around the yard, the flowers give off a smell that bugs do not like, so plant some in that garden also to help ward off bugs without using insecticides.
"Tough guy" Marines who spend a great deal of time "camping out" say that the very best mosquito repellant you can use is Avon Skin-So-Soft bath oil mixed about half and half with alcohol.
One of the best natural insect repellants that I've discovered is made from the clear real vanilla. This is the pure Vanilla that is sold in Mexico. It works great for mosquitoes and ticks, don't know about other insects.
When all else fails--get a frog
Fight West Nile...

|13th Annual Salute to America Sat. July 2|
From the brochure:
Celebrate independence Day with fun, fireworks and patriotic music. :
Enjoy the twighlight of a summer evening with a stroll in Greenfield Village, our newly restored national treasure. Be sure to bring a blanket or chair, then sit back and relax as the Detroit Symphony Orchestra lights up the night with an exciting program of patriotic favorites, topped off with a spectacular fireworks display.
We are organizing a group to attend the Concert on Saturday July 2, 2005 . We will display some sort of signal to let you know where we will be seated. On the day of the Concert Greenfield Village closes and and hen re-opens at 6pm. So you can't get there early to tour the village unless you are willing to leave when they close and then re-enter.
We will also set up a carpool from the Royal Oak train station for people coming from the North and East.
Something new this year, the City of Dearborn has levied a $5.00 parking fee which means there is a $5.00 parking fee for each order. If you purchase one ticket individually you will have to pay $27.50 ($22.50 plus $5.00) If you purchase two tickets you will pay $50.00 ($22.50 times 2 plus $5.00) so it pays to buy through a group. Please sign up for the event as soon as possible. There are two choices: you can get your tickets through Peggy Jo Studio for $24.00 (the extra $1.50 is to defray the parking fee, mailing and PayPal fees) providing your payment is received by June 27 (this is a much better deal than Ticketmaster that charges $5 per transaction) or you can make your own ticket arrangements and meet us there. You can also pay by credit card through PayPal . The same service provided by Greenfield Village woud cost an extra $5.00
If you are going to join us there, register anyway so that we can keep you informed.
