Debunking the 'American Idol' audtion myths
MYTH: There are enough auditions to fill an entire stadium. REALITY: The average number of auditioners is 6,000 to 8,000.
MYTH: People wait in massive lines to audition. REALITY: Those massive lines are stock footage. Hopefuls wait in line to register and be screened and come back weeks later with a number if they make the cut to audition.
MYTH: The majority of the auditions are freaks and weirdos. REALITY: The freaks and weirdos just get more screen time. The majority are talented people.
MYTH: Many auditioners seem to pick the same song. REALITY: People who make the cut are instructed to download lyrics to a particular song and learn it. A coach runs them through it before auditions.
MYTH: The judges do all the judging. Â REALITY: Specially hired scouts and then producers screen all contestants before they ever set foot in front of the judges.
MYTH: The judges do the judging once the contestants are in the room. REALITY: Yes. But not totally. Between the screening round and the actual filmed auditions, producers coach the contestants about what songs to sing, how to behave, etc.
MYTH: The "bad" contestants really think they have a shot. REALITY: Nope. Producers tell everyone straight out, "some of you are here because you're good and some of you are here because you're bad."
MYTH: The auditions that get screen time are random. REALITY: Producers are already in Hollywood Week when the auditions air; therefore, auditions are edited with outcome in mind.

Create a Pest Management Calendar
Is your mailbox filling with next year's calendars? Put them to use managing pests in the garden.
No, I'm not talking about smashing insects with the rolled up calendar. Instead, use them to develop a pest-monitoring calendar for next year.
Take a few minutes to review this year's garden journal. Look for notes on any pest problems you encountered. Make a note to watch for these pests in next year's calendar. This helps with early detection; a key to successful control.
Consider adding notes about the weather and control measures you tried that were effective. Try using preventative eco-friendly measures like barriers and traps to prevent problems. Covering your cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower before the cabbageworm moths are active allows you to prevent damage.
Setting out shallow cans of stale beer will help you minimize feeding damage by slugs and snails during wet weather.
A bit more information: No garden journal? This is a good opportunity to create one that includes your growing successes, failures as well as pest problems. Use a spiral notebook, three-ring binder or computer calendar or spreadsheet. Just make it easy and fun. That way you are sure to keep recording, referencing and putting your gardening experiences to work.
