KIdd - good for you on Jumping with the Stars- I have been riding for over 20years and have done jumping and its a challenge. Good for a nice ride
I have been riding and working with horses about 5 years and have still never trotted a hoof into the show ring! I give you so much credit for not being as big of a baby as me and riding so well! Sorry i didn't get to see you ride I was a horse fairFriday and Saturday but didn't make it back on Sunday! Hope you keep riding, horses are amazing creatures!
great job Kidd! i love to listen to your morning show and got a kick out of your jumping efforts - for such a wonderful cause. i hope you had fun and encourage you to keep it up, a sport you can excel in!
Good Job Kidd!! I listen to you and Elizabeth every morning while I am in the barn tacking up my horse. I am so happy for your wonderful ride and it is even more impressive that you did all of that for charity. I am sad that you are not going to be staying in the horse world and continuing with your horse jumping sport!! Oh well, you did a great job and you have a lot to be proud of! Congrats!
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:)
