    Good for us, basil grows like weeds -- even on our sorry little urban apartment balcony. No wonder we don't have a fly problem.
    Hmmm -- what herbs will scare away the bleepin' termites?

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Finally got my new laptop up and running. I've had ZERO experience with laptops, and I am trying to avoid a trip to the "nervous hospital"! To add to the drama, I have Windows 8 on it. The ethernet cable...I can't remove it from the laptop unit for some bizarre reason, so my computer has a yellow, dangling "tail". HELP ME, RHONDA!!!!!

    Do you have a wireless modem?

    Yes, I do.

    If your laptop has the wireless switch turned on, you should be able to disconnect the Ethernet cable.

    Ellen, I read that cold, salt water or WD-40 are some natural ways of getting rid of termites.

    Please tell me that others make really dumb mistakes. I made a really stupid mistake and I feel so terrible. I know it happens, but it just makes you feel so bad. I won't go into details, but it caused me a lot of extra time, energy and inconvenience and put some other people to trouble as well. I guess you have to just kick yourself a little and move on.

    Exactly......forgive yourself, make ONLY 1 apology (as in "DON'T overdo it!"), and move on! We all do it/have done it....nothing like looking stupid in front of YOURSELF! Eventually, when you're in the privacy of your own company, you should be able to laugh about it and give yourself a slap upside the head! You aren't the first and you won't be the last.
