Oh, and I'm heading down to the basement to wash and dry my Graylocks - cuz they ain't "Goldi-" anymore. I figure even if it's cool enough to do it in the upstairs bathroom I have everything all set up downstairs. I always wash it in the basement - the utility tub down there is easier to lean in to than the bathtub, plus the water pressure is marginally better. Next time you see me I'll be all bee-yoo-tee-full! Or at least my hair will be clean.

(Plus I get most of my recipes online these days).
Katy, I have now got Gordon's ebook, Humble Pie, I will start reading it once I finish the ebook I am on now

He does have a follow up one called Playing With Fire, apparently that one is more about his restaurants, his staff, tips on how to run a successful business, things like that...not sure if I need to read that one, but I may

DL--good idea to get that second opinion. No offense, but a new grad...

And what am I doing today? Planning the picnic lunch for tomorrow at the farm. So far, I've made mayo...plan on doing egg salad sandwiches on a whole wheat...pita or kaiser. Haven't made the bread, yet. Have to run into the village to get yeast. And, I'm thinking some Vietnamese rolls stuffed with shrimp, radish sprouts, zucchini, and whatever else I find in the garden (okay, the shrimp is from the freezer) and a sort of sweet-sour dipping sauce. Thinking about some sort of cookie for dessert...

That would explain where the dead hornets in my driveway have been coming from.
So I went into the house and ate a big bowl of spaghetti, green beans and garlic bread. You know, to mull things over

Oh dear.

We had good luck with some stuff from Raid for hornets. You wait until dusk or dark, when the wasps are less active, then you spray them from 10 feet away. I had Stirling do it, all wrapped up and with all but his eyes covered. Turned out that it wasn't necessary.

Wow! You'll have to save it when it's abandoned. A friend collects old hornet nests, they're pretty cool.

Hope Stirling was able to get out of that garb!

That's hilarious, Linda!
Are you sure you just didn't dress him up like that for a photo op?

I use drione dust. That's what I hit the one with in the first post here. It will be interesting to see if I need to hit this one more than once because of it's size. And if the hornets scramble to get their young out like before. For some reason the dust didn't kill the larvae.

And I'll probably leave it there. The one is still hanging onto the eave of my chicken coop and nothing has tried to build another hive there.

It would be a good use for my torch though
