I don't know how much this will work for you..but if you're allergic to mosquito bites you could consider it.

A friend of mine has the same problem. She swears that if she uses an abundance of garlic that the mosquitos do not bother her as much. I know the garlic tabs did not work for me - I tried them when I was camping a lot. She used actual cloves in a lot of her cooking. Her husband joked that she just did it to make him sleep on the couch becuase he snores so much! LOL

Thanks for the welcomes! No worry about the snipe-hunting, we have snipe hunters in Indiana, too! emoticon emoticon
But I didn't listen to my daughter when she warned me about the mosquitoes. They have already discovered me with a vengeance. I think they know that I'm allergic to their bites (thankfully just get huge red itchy welts and not the breathing problems like with bee stings).

And our poor furbaby Cocoa (a little Shih Tzu) seems to be very attractive to the fleas around here. Holy smoke, I have never seen so many!! Even his flea medicine doesn't give him much relief. emoticon

But the people are all so nice and friendly. We can't wait to start taking little trips to do the tourist thing, as we hear there is lots to see and do.

Hi Brenda,

Welcome to SP. I wanted to welcome you again - already did on NE AR Sparks. I spend more time there than I do here...and I live in LR! Everyone is just so great in that group. Hope you accomplish your goals here on SP. I love this site!

emoticon 2BeHealthyAgain! I know how the prices in Indiana are - my daughter is in Spencer and constantly tells me of it. I think you'll find the longer you're here the more you'll love - except the mosquitos! LOL

All of us will help you in any way we can. You can be as active as you want - I was basically a lurker for more than a year before I started really getting involved. emoticon And you'll find that the more you do, the better you'll come to feel!!

Hi, my name is Brenda and I'm 57 years old. My husband and I recently moved to Arkansas (Harrisburg) from Indiana. Our youngest daughter moved down here because her friend lives here and the cost of living here is cheaper than in Indiana. We came to visit for a couple months last winter and went home and packed up and here we are. We love it here!

I'm fairly new to the group, but not to SP. I joined in June of 2007, then became ill and wasn't able to do much. It has only been in the past 5 or 6 weeks that I have returned and really started checking everything out.

I have diastolic heart failure, depression, borderline high cholesterol (just a couple points before my doctor says it's time for meds for it), GERD, overactive bladder, pre-diabetes, arthritis, as well as being morbidly obese.
