something useful for Martok:  http://complete-health-and-happiness.com/9-natural-ways-keep-spiders-home-2/

Fire is natural.

Heh, my thoughts exactly.  ;)  Although I'm amused by the thought of keeping them away with peppermint as well.

A home with prime views of the third and fourth holes at Whitmoor Country Club has been vacant for two years because of a creepy crawly problem.

The home was infested with between 4,500 and 6,000 brown recluse spiders, according to one estimate.

The previous homeowners abandoned the 2,400-square-foot atrium ranch after years of pesticide treatments couldn’t curb the invasion.

I read that story back on Friday as well.  I knew it wouldn't be long before it got posted here.  :P 


Yeah, reading that definitely gave me the heebie-jeebies; I can scarcely even imagine the horror.  :-\  I feel bad for the owners too, essentially getting screwed/stiffed by both the previous owners and the insurance company.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

^  And that's when I would move.  To another town, at the very least.
