• Twice I have found my outdoor spigot to be stuffed with small green leaves. Do you have any clues?

    The first time this happened was 5 years ago and was 300 miles away. (We have since moved.) I suspect some sort of solitary wasp trying to make a nest, but I sure would like to know. It is fascinating.

  • How much drinking alcohol is enough to give DTs if you just stop. I am afraid of the repurcussions.?

    I cannot go into rehab right now, but I am beginning to get scared about the way alcohol is stealing my life. Or the way I am giving my life away to alcohol. If I stop cold turkey, can I predict DTs?

  • The back of my mother's lower legs (calves) showed unusual discoloration today. Sort of like bruising?

    but there was no impact. It is mottled purplish blue. Mom is 94, she is not feeling discomfort, her breathing and pulse is good. I have elevated her legs and put an extra "egg crate" type pad under that part. I need suggestions about causes and procedures. I never find that Friday night is a good time to drag an elder to the ER, but... show more

  • Cocoa garden mulch is deadly to dogs?

    I also posted this in garden and landscaping because if true, the word needs to get out there. Has anyone heard about this? Garden season is coming up and Snopes says it is true. Help me find out and spread the word. No warnings are on the package and it is being sold at a lot of places. And, yes, it smells like chocolate.

  • Has there been any discussion of the 6 teens in Minnisota charged with abuse in a nursing home? ?

    I did a search and found nothing in answers. Here is the article http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081205/ap_o... Many of us have elders in NHs. What charges do you think should apply? Surely this is felony level sexual assault that deserves serious prison time.

  • Can you recommend a good eye wash for the elderly? My 94 year old mother gets a lot of gunk in her eyes . ?

    She has severe macular degeneration and the eye docs have not been able to help her. When she was 90, we quit going because the visits were so hard on her (also severe arthritis and now is incontinent) so taking her back to the eye clinic is a last resort.

When she was 90, we quit going because the visits were so hard on her (also severe arthritis and now is incontinent) so taking her back to the eye clinic is a last resort. Her eyes are full of sticky crude in the morning and she can barely open them. We clean them out good at bed time and use artificial tears and an ointment for dryness, but it no longer does the job. Any suggestions will be appreciated. This is very frustrating for her.

  • What is best to feed Honey Bees? Most of us are aware that they are in trouble for reasons still under?

    being debated. I don't want them to go away, they only come in the evening and the hummers have plenty feeding time. I asked in zoology but I would appreciate a gardener's reply. Thanks
