by Julie

Ah yes, I can’t think of 2 things I love more than hot-tubs, and being out on the open water. Ideally, I guess I would like to be using the hot-tub on the stern of my 115 foot yacht.

BUG-A-SALT – Insect Hunting at its Best

by Julie

There is nothing I hate more than flies. Somehow, above all other insects, some of which I know are much more disgusting, the fly just seems to scream filth and disease. Did you know most flies vomit on whatever it wants to eat, in order to suck up the nutrients in liquid form? Anytime a fly lands on my food, I picture that, and I’m done, doesn’t matter how good …
