I found out first hand this works. We had 3 deer in our yard and it did spook them. So far the deer have stayed out of the front garden. My neighbor wasn't so lucky. They eat all her roses.
I messed up the ant tip. It is Borax and powder sugar mixed together. This is why you should reread your comments before posting them.

Finally, I am done with my busy day. I sit down at the dinning table with my laptop. I have a relaxing evening planed of getting to know the girls in the homestead group I had just joined. Heidi had told me how to bring the group's board up. I did as she said, only to be sent to every web search that was ever invented. I would go to one then it would send me to another. One very big viscous circle. I just wanted to throw the thing through the door. But my husband was sitting right there and he might of got a little upset.
(I interrupted this post due to Heidi calling me back from earlier call)
Poor Heidi. She always has to fix my mess. I started asking a LOT of questions. Which did no good because she really needed the computer in front of her to do anything. She said she would be right over. I made a pot of coffee. If I have taken her out of her house at 8pm. I should at least have coffee. I knew I probably frustrated her, especially since I mess up a lot on my computer. And she has to bail me out. It turned into one big mess for her too. For one thing they had me get a goggle e-mail account I didn't need. Then they did the same thing to Heidi that they did to me. She also got locked into that viscous circle. Yay, for once it wasn't my fault. Any way to make a long story short it took the poor woman almost an hour to fix it. Heidi saved my computer from being scrap metal.
Now I will say good night to all before any thing else can go wrong.
YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME!
I just found out this didn't post last night.
They say that bad days follow from one person to the next so if you end up having a bad day today, I'm apologizing in advance.

The honeycomb you see on the plate came from one of her hives. The dark you see is honey. I am planning to make a small candle out of the wax, The honey inside will give it a nice smell. I did get a nice little surprise. Heidi had put it in a plastic bag.So when I went to get it out I got honey on my fingers. The heat in the bag must of melted the honey in the comb. My fingers never tasted better. I can't wait to get a whole jar. Biscuits,pancakes,and waffles smothered in honey YUM. I need to quit day dreaming. I am making my self really hungry.

6 tablespoon butter-flavored shortening 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2/3 cups packed brown sugar 3 cups quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup sugar 2- 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
3 eggs 1- 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1- 1/4 teaspoon salt. 3/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup pecans
In a very large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in buttermilk and vanilla.
Combine the oats, flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the chips and pecans.
Drop by rounded tablespoons 3 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks.
It makes a big batch, so I cook half then freeze the other half for a later time.
This recipe comes from Taste of Home Cookie book. My family rated these as one of their favorites.

I wanted to make a batch of homemade Dish soap that I saw made on you tube. You needed Octagon Soap to make it. So I ordered it from the web site ( www. Soap gone buy.com.) That was on April 15. We still have not received it. We called the number on their web site. There was a message that a Tornado had gone thru but they were back in business and all orders would be going out Fri. The picture on the site was dated Feb 12. Our order was sent in well after that. My husband e-mailed them twice and never received a reply. I called their number and left a message. I got no reply back. A week later I tried calling them again. This time I tried both numbers that were on their site .The message on the phone was the same. Only this time both of the mail boxes were full. They received their money with in a few days of our order. With no reply's or soap in site.I feel we have been taken. It is up to you if you wish to try this site. Personally I would not recommend them. If we do receive our soap I will let you know. Unfortunately that's a long shot. Please let your blogger friends know, so they don't make the same mistake we did.
