I have only been to waterfire a few times, each time was great. The ambience is beautiful. If you take lots of pictures, you see lots of orbs. Whether spirits or teeny pieces of ash i dont know lol :) Glad u enjoyed yourself up here.

You're right BTW it is a southern thing. Which is part of the reason i think I am made to be southern. Im too nice. Outspoken and crazy lol But nice.

WaterFire is kinda cool. I could soak up the wood fire smell and watch the flames flickering in the reflection in the canal just forever. I will go again.

If the spray of soap doesn't work- and maybe it wouldn't be any different than dumping the water- I guess I'd suggest chemical warfare if that doesn't bother you. I have to admit there are times when in the battle of the bugs I'll do anything to win. ~wince~

I'd heard that before, and it seemed to work back in Illinois. I habitually wash dishes in a dishpan and then take the dirty water out to pour over my plants, both for the soapy deterrence of soft-bodied insects and to save water. It didn't seem to help with the spinach here. I've tried releasing ladybugs, BT, neem, all without success. Other greens thrive, I just can't get a good leaf of spinach. emoticon emoticon

For aphids- use some dish soap- just a small dot or two and fill one of those squirt bottles with it- it makes "suds" that once you spray the plants will kill the aphids. I use it on rose bushes too.
I've done a couple of types of spinach- doesn't seem to matter to me as I like almost all greens!

laundry went well and your salad sounds delicious.

what variety of spinach do you grow? I've had nothing but bad luck (aka aphids) with spinach since I moved to Massachusetts.

Yeah, I too just use regular conditioner and I only rinse the new growth. I had to wash my hair last week 'cause to get some color out, and I just rinsed and conditioned it twice a day until it was back to normal.

Hi! I'm new.

I have a question. I have psoriasis of the scalp and curly hair. I am hoping that losing weight will help....but in meantime.... I have to use harsh chemicals to help the scalps which means deep conditioning for the hair. Any suggested products?

Post about anything you'd like to talk about- maybe that way we can get a little life back into this team!
We used to be a pretty active group with conversations about hair, websites that we've found, food, etc.... now, just a quiet group!

Should we close the team up? Doesn't seem like we have anyone that is interested in being active on here. I totally understand- as I have other things going on and other teams too.... just wondering what anyone else's thoughts are on this.
