Big-Bucks Breakups

According to a recent poll, the average woman spends close to $800 after a breakup…no, not on Ben & Jerry’s and white wine, but on making over her appearance! The survey found that many women deal with the painful end of a relationship by indulging in retail therapy, with shopping for a fresh wardrobe, splurging on a new hairstyle and signing up for a gym membership among the most common image-improving purchases. Experts say that women often feel self conscious about their looks after a breakup, and a makeover can be a great way to lift their spirits- and their confidence. Here's the breakdown from the Daily Mail --$144 on a new hairdo.   --$62 on tanning.   --$192 on new clothes.   --$96 on new shoes.   --$76 on new make-up.   --$81 on manicures and pedicures.   --And $128 on a gym membership, boot camp, and other attempts to get into shape.    --On top of that, the average woman also spends $109 a week going out once they're single.  And 11% immediately buy an online dating membership.

Bald spots
I just found out with my dad that if you get a buzz cut, it camouflages your bald spot. This way you aren't spending $100 on some hair grower.

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.
