    Nab,

    As usual you’re off base. Pathology showed that the 72-year old woman did NOT have ebola. She did not have the symptoms on the flight or she would have spent most of the time in the bathroom, if she were that close to death. She became ill after the plane landed (yes, she did vomit) but was transported ALIVE to the hospital where she later died. The cause of death was listed as “natural causes.” Additionally, it wasn’t last month but at the beginning of August.
    *****************************************

    As to your other list of diseases – none of them ENTERED the US in the past year – they’ve been here for years and years.

    It’s not hate. Missouri is the “Show Me” state.

    We let a couple grow to huge size one year – then carved them like pumpkins for Halloween! Big hit with all the trick or treaters.

    Put aluminum foil, shiny side up, under the plants. Disorients the parent moths and they don’t lay the eggs.

    Use a row cover when the plants are small. Remove when the first female flowers appear so that pollinators can do their job.

    Slit the stem when you notice the wilting the stem borer causes, remove the borer, bury the stem past the removal site – new roots will often form and keep the rest of the plant going.

    If you were looking for zucchini worms, try squash vine borers instead. There’s lots of info out there.

    Nab,

    Refer back to Monday’s strip when Andy sent Roger out to buy EGGS. Don’t know what she wanted to do with them – could have been cooking or maybe using the whites in a facial. Whatever.

    Hi Beviek,

    Great photo, but you’ve misplaced the volcano. It’s not in Ethiopia. It’s in Indonesia.
    Here’s a link to an article with more photos:

    Scroll to the end to see the rocks of sulfur at the edges.

    Shikamoo,

    Many wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

    Congrats on your success. You didn’t put the 50 pounds on overnight and it can’t be lost that way either. Ignore the critics and keep doing what’s obviously working for you.

    Diets cause your body to think there’s a famine going on and your metabolism slows as a result. That causes both the rebound and the extra weight gain when you stop dieting.

    Not only do DIETS NOT WORK, but they cause weight gain.

    And to the absurd claim that calories are calories and all are created equal so it doesn’t matter if you eat sugary foods and drink soda/pop – it’s what comes with the calories that matter. The calories must be in nutritious food with the right amount of fat, carb, and protein as well as a goodly amount of all the micro-nutrients that a human body needs. Food processors have not come up with that solution yet.

    The answer is to eat real food – as close to what Mother Nature produces as possible (cooking is allowed).

    AND to get off your butt for at least 30 minutes a day. More is better, but it doesn’t have to be strenuous aerobic activity – strolling, standing and pacing while on the phone, walking in place while watching TV, etc will fill the bill.
