After suffering from my first migraine earlier this week, I decided to go in and get an MRI scan. I wasn't worried I had any major problems, but my friends and family thought it would be a good idea just to make sure everything was "normal" up there. I told them "You will never find anything normal by looking at my brain."
It was a great experience and the initial scan didn't show any major concerns. For the record, I do have a full brain even though sometimes on the radio it may sound like I am only working with half of one.
Thanks for all your emails and advice on migraines, it's nice to know you're not alone when you lose your vision and get a splitting headache.

I'm glad you have a whole brain. I've never suffered a migraine and hope I never will. The last MRI I had there were 15 new lesions on it. Not something to look hopeful at. I am hoping you could give me 1/2 your brain and I'll give you 1/2 of mine. That way we will both be 1/2 way normal. LOL
That is well known that cash makes people autonomous. But how to act if one has no cash? The one way only is to try to get the loans or just commercial loan.
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:)
