Bug Report;  Black Flies are making a nuisance of themselves with the mosquitoes following not to far behind.  One gets away from the black flies by going inside a building or shelter but when it comes to the mosquitoes they are everywhere.  Even in ones bedroom at night if you leave that outside door open to long when entering.  Nothing worse, than trying to sleep, while hearing that buzzing around ones ears.  Joys of living in the north they say.  Hmm.

Fishing Times:  For those wanting to do some fishing and wanting to know the time to catch them, the old weather stick along with Grandfathers formula, is saying that the best time to be out there will be from; 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM.  Again a bit later from 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM.  Then once again even later from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM.  I give it a 4 Fish Rating out of 4 for catching them today.  One great day for catching them to say the least.  These days don’t come long too often.

News Around Town:  Not to much to report.  Lots of folks planting their gardens with the threat of frost behind us.  Being so cool one would think it would have put us a bit behind this year, but in reality it hasn’t.  Gardens still could have been planted one week before the 24th of May. Same as last year.  I still got some things to get in the ground myself, so thinking I had better get to it before it is to late.  Certain things have to be done at certain times, if one wants to eat healthy come fall.   So my friends, get outside, get some dirt on your skin along with sunshine and your on your way to a healthy summer.    No Doctors needed.  Also now you can leave a Comment on the Blog if you so choose, a new added feature.
