Can't believe I'm about to write this...

Let me preface what I’m about to write by saying this: I’m not proud of myself…I’m not even HAPPY with myself. Ok, here goes!
I went to see Miley Cyrus last night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the “BANGERZ” tour. Having been in the radio industry my whole life, part of what I enjoy the most are the shows, whether I’m a fan of the artist or not, I enjoy a great production! I enjoy seeing the crowd and it’s reaction to the artist that’s performing. What I saw last night was Miley OWNING the crowd filled with fans of ALL AGES!
I say this MOSTLY in a joking manner, but I saw things THAT I CAN’T UN-SEE!!!!! For example: Miley took the stage by sliding down a GIANT TONGUE SLIDE. She “flew” around on a GIANT SAUSAGE. She even forgot the words to one of her own songs “Rooting For My Baby” and acknowledged it by saying she “MESSED UP” (she used other words to explain it, LOL). There were other things that happened during the show that I can’t and won’t talk about here, but all that said, it was worth the price of admission IMO...a GREAT PRODUCTION! Like Miley or not, she really CAN SING and again, she OWNED the crowd last night!
Ok, I waited as long as I could: I ENJOYED IT...ALOT!
Eco-friendly Control of Thrips
Poorly developed flowers, stunted plants and silvery streaks on leaves are indications thrips may be feeding on your plants.
These tiny insects have file-like mouthparts they use to puncture the outer surface of leaves, stems and flowers and suck out plant sap. They are very small and difficult to detect. Hold a white piece of paper under the plant and shake. Or remove the petals of damaged flowers, place in a sealed jar with 70% alcohol and shake the jar to dislodge and detect the pests.
Control is difficult and often not needed as the damage is discovered after the thrips have finished feeding.
Provide the proper growing conditions and care for your plants. Avoid excess nitrogen that promotes lush succulent growth these pests prefer. And remove spent flowers that tend to harbor the insects. Manage weeds in the garden and keep thrip-susceptible plants away from weedy areas where the pest populations tend to be high.
A bit more information: Beneficial insects like predatory thrips, green lacewings, minute pirate bugs and some parasitic wasps feed upon plant damaging thrips. Invite these good bugs into the garden by planting a diversity of plants and avoiding persistent pesticides. Visit the University of California IPM online for more details on this pest.

If you ever get a chance to see Milwaukee from the water...do it! I don't know what it is about the water but everything looks beautiful when you're on the water. I took these over the weekend and just looking at them calms me. We have a beautiful city enjoy it and enjoy what's left of summer:)
