When did the price of Shamrock Shakes exceed $2.00? It has been a long time since I have celebrated St. Patrick's Day with Mc Donalds, but when the young lady said "$3.15 please pull forward" I said to myself "She must have misunderstood me." When I got to the second window, I quickly realized there was no mistake. I was presented with a piece of fast food art that included whip cream and a cherry on top of a green and white swirled shamrock shake. What happened to my cheap, artificial flavored, cardboard cup shamrock shake? Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Kidd and Elizabeth ~ You're both so funny! I was just driving my granddaughter to school, we were listening to your Shamrock Shake story and cracking up laughing! So I couldn't wait to get home to tell you my Shamrock Shake story. I was going to call in but you two are already on the pregnant lady topic. Anyways ~ Last week I thought I'd treat my granddaughter to one on the way home from school because she gets excited every year when they come out. So we went to the McDonald's on 27th and Morgan. Now we too were confused on what size to get because we were unfamiliar with the size of their shakes. So we order 2 large. (I think we thought they would be like the size of a medium drink cup or a little smaller???) So the car in front of us gets one of the fancy ones in the clear cup with the whipped cream and cherry. We were pretty excited about it. I pull up to the window and the girl hands me 2 Huge Shakes!!! They were in the regular plastic Large drink cups with a Marquette University Logo on them and a regular flat lid (like Elizabeth said "with the things that you push in) I almost didn't want to accept them because they were huge and we didn't get our whipped cream or cherry on top!!! And I paid over $6.00 for the two of them!!! I didn't want to make a big deal about it at the window, so I took them, we almost died! We couldn't believe how big they were and very disappointed we didn't get the fancy ones. So I dropped her off at home, told her to put the rest in the freezer for later. Then to top it off, her mom (my daughter) got really mad at her and me. I was yelled at for buying her such a big shake. Now I never would've done that had I known. These McDonald's need to get this straight and get their employees right on this... Don't ya think??? I love you guys ~ I listen every morning.

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:)
