Pests with six and then eight legs
It is 86 degrees outside with the dew point in the high 70s as I write this at 9 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and sweat is dripping off my head. The forecast is for thunderstorms today and if it does rain, it will be the fourth straight Tuesday that has happened. At least the weekends have been dry, much to the delight of the horticulture businesses that depend so much on nice weekend weather. Please patronize our small, local business as much as possible as they struggle to recover from last year’s hurricane damage.

Looking Back
First of all, I want to wish all of you a very happy and healthy 2012. I know that for many of you, 2011 was not a good year due to the wrath of Tropical Storm Irene. Let us hope that nature will be kinder to us in 2012.

This is the time of year when we make promises to ourselves that we may or may not keep. Usually the promise revolves around some sort of health or life style change that we know will be good for us.
