Reset the mouse trap with fresh cat treats and pheromones. I like these little black traps. Seem to work better than my big green one. Both are live traps. I take the meeses out to the rural area about 4 miles from here to release them. I'm going to buy 2 more of the black traps at the Davis Food Co-op when we go this weekend. They are $2.75 each.
Here's a good article about buying your food locally:

I try to buy as local as possible and am getting better about it with every shopping trip. Sadly, there is no co-op here in Woodland, although my mom says there was one when I was a baby. She remembers pushing me in the stroller to shop there, but could never buy much as we only had 1 car at the time (I soooo don't remember my dad ever having only 1 car when I was little!!) and my dad was the 1 to take it to work (& park it all day, since he drove truck!) But, I am so happy that I found the Davis Co-op, as it is only about 10 miles from us.
Love Dr. Mercola's articles and health tips. Here's one:
mercola HEALTHBIT: Mercury #amalgam fillings are primitive 19th-century devices, but they are still widely used in the United States.

All of mine have broken and fallen out, leaving gaping holes. I've started researching dentists in my area. I have found only 1 who doesn't use amalgams, so far. I really need to get my teeth fixed, but with no money ... I know I should have used part of my homebuyer's rebate to get started, but needed food and to pay bills and such more.
Had half a baked potato and popcorn shrimp and half a banana for dinner with raw whole milk. Stuffed. Will have homemade lemon ice cream later.
I try to Twitter A Critter as much as possible. You should try it!

I did not know this! I'll have to look more closely at the signage in the produce sections to see if my usual stores carry any of this. I do buy some of their raw milk cheeses, etc.

I didn't get any real exercise done today, other than walking through stores and back & forth to the car. Be right back. Going to jump on the mini-trampoline! 

There! Did 20 jumps on the trampoline. Then refilled all my pill boxes with my vitamins and herbs for the next 3 weeks. I need to get more Whole Foods multi-vitamin or something similar at the Co-op. Will take the label with me.

I'd love to make something like this, but there is just no room in my yard and we don't get enough rain throughout the year to warrant it:

This is an excellent article and so true. If you have ever visited factory farms and small, old-style farms you would know the difference in the sanitation. I've been to both. I choose old-style any day! I've been to dairy farms where old M&Ms and sawdust were part of the feed-mix for the cattle. There were piles of the stuff taller than me! Where's the nutrition in that. And, the smell ... I can still remember it 25 years later.
