I found an old January 1993 copy of Organic Gardening and wanted to share this funny story I found in the “Letters to the Editor”. It made me chuckle.
I hate writing letters, but since no one else has told you how to live in peace with slugs and snails, I guess I’ll have to.
My husband (who is weird but lovable) took a liking to snails when we lived in Seattle. I would be in the garden getting slimed and he would come along and tell me “Don’t kill ’em.” “Fine with me,” I’d say, “I don’t like killing anything, but they can’t stay here.” So he took them away.
Later, I realized he had been going outside about an hour after dark every night and spending a half hour out there. So I followed him—he had the flashlight with him and was headed for a narrow strip of soil between the sidewalk and rock garden. And there they were—scores of slugs and snails chowing down on broccoli stems, an old carrot and wilted weeds he had pulled earlier in the day. He had a snail in one hand and a paint pen in the other. He was putting the number 83 on the snail’s shell!
There are lots of numbered snails running around (well, sliming around),. As I soon discovered, they came to that spot at the same time every night where he would feed them!
The soil was improved from all that snail and slug poop, my plants were left pretty much alone, my husband had a cheap hobby that took him out in the fresh air every night, and I no longer had the moral dilemma of killing those slimy critters.
The key here is wilted veggies. Put them in the same place every night and the same time they will come.

Also, in this issue was a great hint on natural pest control: using grapefruit seeds — or any citrus seed to control potato beetles. You dry the seeds for a few days and then grind them up. Then add water. The article states that it makes something of a paste, so getting the right ratio of water that won’t gunk up your sprayer but not too much that it dilutes the limonin (that is the ingredient that repels them).
Dutchsinse has a video up on the current state of earthquakes around the globe. There was an earthquake, I think it’s a 4.1, in the bay south of California. Mexico authorities reported it. But as of 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard, there is no report by USGS. Along with those they are not reporting at Yellowstone….things that make you go hmmm….
**edited to add this map of the Sedan Crater — a nuclear blast created this, folks. A radioactive nuclear blast! You can click several times to pull away from it, and it is still visible! WTH are they thinking??
It can only be described as insanity to destroy that which gives life.
Industry just gets a wink and a nod to keep polluting the water that we humans, the birds, the deer, the fish…all of us depend on for life.
They just.don’t.care. and they will continue until the water is sooo toxic that no life is sustainable.
So I turned on the local radio station here that is owned by a conservative repub who regularly gives free airtime to Joe Donnelly who is in deep with the Cabal. Note that this same radio station NEVER airs opposing viewpoints. Ever.
So…I catch only part of what Donnelly is saying, but enough to turn my stomach. He is advocating for vets coming forward to call someone about depression. Ugh.
As we are seeing with the false flags, they are pushing HARD to take guns away from the American public. Some say that is why Texas is getting hit so hard by chemtrails and created hurricanes is because nearly everyone there has a gun and knows how to use it.
You have also noticed with these false flags is that they always try to bring in a mental health issue as the cause…while killing the person so we cannot hear their testimony and cannot judge for ourselves whether this person was mentally afflicted.
This also makes it easier to deny someone access to guns because of a mental issue.
So this brings me back to Donnelly and why they want veterans to claim depression and therefore it will be easier to deny them gun ownership. A veteran with a gun is more of a threat, you see…
So please, if you are a veteran, I would do detoxes with raw food, coffee enemas, fasting, before ever consulting with a so-called professional about depression. Depression is clearly linked with toxic overload and if you were given vaccines, you were given toxic substances that destroy your immune system and pollute your liver. A congested liver will make you depressed. A polluted liver, kidney and adrenal gland will make you anxious.
And I am not a healthcare professional, please consult with your calcified medical professional who was taught by Big Pharma to pump you with drugs and not make you well, but manage symptoms.
I’ve kept silent about the Weinstein/Spacey/add a name here harassment claims because I smell something rotten. These are rich powerful men who usually get away with harassment…so I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak, to see why this is coming out now.
There’s a reason, folks, because the Cabal is controlling the media now so if you are seeing something prominently displayed, it’s either punishment for not going along with the Cabal or it is to distract you from something terrible going on behind the scenes…
So today I click on yahoo news, and there is Joe Biden trying to yet again to make himself out to be some sort of proponent for women. After the videos I have viewed recently on Anita Hill and Biden, he makes me sick.
The video below is a compilation of creepy moments with Joe Biden. Pay close attention to where his hands are, how he continually puts his hands around the women’s waists. NOTE TO BIDEN AND OTHERS: PUTTING YOUR HANDS ON A WOMAN’S WAIST IS AN INTIMATE GESTURE AND IS NOT WELCOME UNLESS YOU ARE HER MATE!!
Biden also continually strokes the women/girls hair and inappropriately kissing women on the cheek, as if they were family members. He also continually admonishes the young girls, who aren’t even thinking about boys at this point, to not date until they are thirty!
So Biden clearly does not know boundaries and he sure the hell should not be consulted for rules regarding such. He deliberately thwarted Anita Hill in order to curry favor with George H.W. Bush. That alone should negate anything this man says. It makes me angry that I believed in Biden when he advocated for the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act). The joke is on me and other women who trusted a man who did not deserve it.
Here’s another one that just sends chills down the spine at the openly molesting of the little girls. The young red haired girl is clearly uncomfortable with whatever Biden is saying to her (by the way, there are many videos asking WTH he was whispering in her ear — he was whispering so low that none of the microphones could pick it up). This poor girl reminded me of me when I was young and creepy men used to do that sort of thing to me. I reacted the same way as she did. I very distinctly remember hiding behind my mother’s skirts when men would wink at me. Even as a five year old, my instincts were telling me to get away from these men. Unfortunately, we women are told to be nice and friendly and dismiss our instincts…to our own peril.
There’s also a video out of Jeff Sessions swatting Biden’s hands away from his granddaughter. I don’t care for Sessions, but I admire his protecting his granddaughter from being molested.
So I don’t know about Roy Moore….it just feels wrong about what is happening to him. I tend to believe women when they say they have been raped or molested, but my instincts are telling me that this woman is not telling the truth. I could be wrong, but it just feels like he is being attacked. Red flags on this are: every single media outlet is on it –that is a huge flag to everyone when they are ALL saying the same thing since the media is controlled by the CABAL now. The second red flag is when I was flipping through the channels and landed on Faux news with the four women talking on Outnumbered. Faux is trying so hard to make it look like they are giving women a voice, when these women are wearing skin tight dresses with the hemlines up to there, high heels, make-up, and clearly are sexualizing their positions. This flies in the face of respect and honor of women in a sacred way.
One was saying that she “would not want someone in Congress with these allegations against them…” This sentence alone makes me think the allegations are false and they don’t want him in Congress because he is not going to go along with the rest of them.
As an American citizen, you are guaranteed the right to appear in court and face your accusers and be allowed to present your own evidence against the allegations. It’s called justice. Allegations are just that — somebody saying something against someone else. Without the 6th Amendment, anyone could say anything against another without fear of being punished for lying about someone else. It’s also in the Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness. How wise God is…
All of this brings up Anita Hill, who was horribly and relentlessly harassed by Clarence Thomas while employed by him. She went through hell after coming forward with her testimony of the graphic nature of the harassment. Incredibly, there are those who said that she changed everything. No. No, she did not. The viciousness that is still evident today if you read the comments under the youtubes with her testifying, was so awful that it made it even harder for women to come forward. It gave a green light for men to not only go on harassing women, but not to fear punishment because women knew they would pay dearly if they breathed a word…so it was highly unlikely they would come forward. But if they did, men had new means of discrediting her. That alone is why I am so skeptical of Weinstein, et al, now being called out for their behavior.
Joe Biden was key to the outcome of the Senate hearing on Thomas. A documentary about it was on youtube, and I have been trying the find it the past two days, with no luck. In it, Biden behind the scenes persuades other Senators to vote in favor of Thomas’ confirmation, so he can curry favor with then President George H.W. Bush. Biden throws Anita Hill under the bus…and we see by the above videos that Biden doesn’t know boundaries any better than Clarence Thomas. It’s the wolf guarding the hen house…
Anita Hill’s opening statement when she protested Clarence Thomas’ appointment to the Supreme Court:
Abusive men don’t take NO for an answer. Abusive men will continue to abuse a woman FOREVER when they fail to see women as sacred creations of God that deserve honor and respect.
…really trying not to scare the wits out of people, but this stuff is coming so fast that I can barely keep up with it all. So again, stay connected to God. Stay alert and aware.
The video below is by dutchsinse. He explains about the earthquakes,and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) trying to hide evidence of quakes by going so far as to put them behind a password so the public cannot get access to the information. And they are probably behind getting dutchsinse’s youtubes pulled. If you have nothing to hide…
One reason they might be doing this is the close ties to fracking…as we all know, fracking is directly correlated to earthquakes.
When I listen to the part about our area, I am very concerned because he says that when things go quiet is the time that bigger earthquakes happen. Well, I’ve been watching the New Madrid fault for awhile now, and there have been earthquakes around 2.0 on the richter scale almost every day. Things have suddenly gone quiet and if you look at those arrows of directional force, one from Texas and one from Oklahoma, they are pointing directly towards Illinois/Indiana. So yeah, I’m a little concerned New Madrid is going to do some shakin’.
