If you live in the fringed north this is the time of year to pick up and store all of your tools before they are lost to a blanket of white. Frank C.

Ugh.  Too early.  Are you in Maine?  Canada?  Myself, I'm in south central NY state in cow country, surrounded by farms and fields and woods.

We're getting some rain for tonight and tomorrow which means I need to get the mill covered after blowing off sawdust, engine exhaust stacks capped, buckets over the shifters, tools picked up, 4 wheeler covered up and outdoor sump pump plugged in.

We've already had ours about 2 weeks ago it seems.  Killed the voluntary tomato plants in the garden but did nothing for the ticks.  I found 4 on me the other day and my 15 yr old boy found one on his.........nether region...........the other day.  I told him he needs to investigate every little tickle or tingle he feels up here in tick country.

Temps changed radically yesterday afternoon.  Went from long-sleeve shirt in the morning to hunting a jacket about 2:00 p.m. .  We will probably have our first freeze this week also.  Not looking forward to winter (who does  ::) ) but, with the way the yellow jackets, wasps and hornets have been... there are farm related tasks that can/will be done with a relative amount of safety from the little SOB's.  Epi-Pens are to dammed expensive now.   >:(

Ticks are not something to be taken lightly.  We have a close friend whom battled mysterious and ever changing medical issues for close to 7 years.  Come to find out she had Lyme's Disease that had stayed relatively dormant until year before last.  Suddenly it came to the forefront. I won't go into the details, but I will say this... don't ignore even the slightest of symptoms.  The life-long effects can be detrimental, both physically and psychologically, to even the strongest of individuals and their family.

Absolutely.  Lyme disease is one of the most insidious illnesses known to man.  With such a wide ranging set of symptoms it is easily masked over by mimicking other illnesses and diseases.  If left to run rampant it can kill.  At one time several years ago I almost felt like an expert in Lyme disease because I thought I had it for years and went through all the protocols to battle it, only to have nothing change in my crummy body.  What's worse is the thought that it is a man made disease that escaped from an island off the coast of CT named Plum Island.  It came ashore near Lyme, CT where the first case is reported and is why it's named Lyme. 

I've said it for years:  man shouldn't be tampering with Mother Nature.  It seems the arrogance of men in the position to mess with her knows no bounds.
