The DW using baby powder, works great on ants and cockroaches. Boric Acid powder also works, but I think any powder that would cause the undesired visitors to try and clean themselves will work.

Not to mention I am a bit preoccupied with finding out my Mom has cancer and been dealing with that. Flew home to be with her for a few days to find out what's what and what's to come. Lots of tests right now.
Sorry to hear about your Mom, give her the strength she needs, we will still be here whenever you visit.

Sore throat wouldn't go away, so I went in for a throat biopsy. It found throat cancer last January.

Didn't get the nausea, but taste buds took a vacation and are just now coming back. Lost ~30 lbs. I'm around 104 right now. Extreme dry mouth. Energy level sucks and I get tired easily. Hair has grown back except below the chin line I always kept trimmed real short anyway. I know I should be exercising, but I've always been lazy. Some of you already knew, but now everybody does. Ask away... I have nothing to hide. Now all of you know how much a mutant I am. It showed clear May 13th. I still have to go for follow-up PEP/CTI/MRI scans. in Nov.

Thanks for all the good words and prayers.

I've cut down smoking from 3 packs a day to , <1 cigarette a day using the patches and putting the smokes out of site did it.
I quit 15 years ago, nary a twinge now. Keep it up it is worth the effort!

Good suggestion. I have both the needle scaler, and impact chisel. First, I'd go with the needle scaler since it is not as brutal as the impact chisel. As a last resort, the air impact chisel used with care and sort of slid under the "cement". Of course both require an air compressor, hoses, etc. Oops ... goggles too.

Um ... a stealth design. Possibly only visible with special mutant colored glasses. My iPad is not up to the task. My entry into the logo design arena is still in the development stage. The brain storm was to use a photo of a big RV wheel and tire then Photoshop reshape it to an oval, or something lopsided. Wording around the tire: Wheels for Special Journeys. Not good, I need a better phrase. Any suggestions? I'll share my winnings in exchange for some help.

Ah, how about a triangular tire? I hate these brain storms ... they give me a headache.

Thoughts and prayers for you, family and your Mom.

You can do it. I put mine down at end of December. Hardest part for me are those 300 to 600 mile journeys for work about every weekend now. Still reach in my shirt pocket, but now come back empty. What do I do with my hands now? Drumming on the steering wheel helps.
An occasional cigar in the evening with a cold beverage has replace my 2.5 a day past.
Every day watching the rainbow is a good day.

Yeah, I know, but it won't be easy after 50+ years? The encouragement helps. Thanks.

Impressive Mutated electrical disturbance. But you are to stay indoors away from windows in an electrical storm.
