Another year of the Celebrity Baked Potato Eating Contest and another loss...I give up! I thought for sure with defending champion, Brew City Bruiser, "Justice" and Today's TMJ 4's Brian Gotter, "out" of the competition, I was in for the win. I thought wrong!
The Celebrity Baked Potato came down to an "eat off" between Brew City Bruiser, Terror Lipinski and OnMilwaukee.com's Andy Tarnoff, with Andy taking the crown.
Other contestants included, Radar from FM106, Jack Strebel from FM1021, The Fairest Of The Fair Alexis Nickelotti, PR/Communication Manager of WSF Patrice Harris and 3 time Olympian and WI Potato Spokesperson, Suzy Favor Hamilton.

They Got To Me...
The two guys from A Great Big World stopped by the Mix studios to sing their hit, "Say Something" and it happened...I cried.
If you have not listened to the song yet...well...I suggest you do, but don't cry :( These guys are very nice and I wish them nothing but success!
I recently spent some time a La Reve...want to see what I enjoyed?

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.
