How Many Treatments are Required to Kill Household Pests

Missin the Fishin?

One of the favorite things that we enjoy here in northern Minnesota is the fishing. We always look forward to ice out and spring fishing which is the best. That is the time that we like to stock up our freezer with our limit of crappies and walleyes because other times of the year, they are harder to catch or out of season. Walleyes and crappies are a couple of the best tasting fish on the planet, especially when they are fresh out of the lake.

Last year in particular, my husband and I were both looking forward to the …

First Snow of the Year

These pictures were taken more than a week ago when we had our first big snow storm.  I woke up late and was wondering about the brightness outside while I was still in the bedroom. When I looked out the window, I found out that we finally got some snow.  Not that I was looking forward to it but when it did not come when we usually get it, I began to wonder about the reality of climate change.

It is our first real snow of the year and will probably stay until spring.  We got all of our fall chores …

Mall of America

[IMG_0845.JPG]
When I first came here to the US, I flew in by myself and it was my first time flying across the Pacific Ocean. At the time, I had no idea what lie’s ahead of me except that I trusted God for bringing me and my husband together. It was ten years ago when I first arrived here in the United States of America.  I can’t believe that it has been that long since I moved in with my husband.  It feels like it was just yesterday.  I am now a believer that time really flies fast when you are …

Sparkling and clean kitchens are the hallmarks of professional spaces because they’re inspected on a regular basis. Your kitchen can look like a professional space with just a few small changes. Consider these alterations as you improve your home’s entire appearance.

Organize the Tools

The tools of your trade are the pots, pans and utensils that make each meal a possibility. A professional kitchen will never have the tools of the trade arranged in sloppy conditions. Create a hanger …

Fishing is Fun!

A photo posted by @garkohler on

I didn’t know how much fun fishing was until I got here to the US. Even though I live near a big lake when I was still in the Philippines, I didn’t get a chance to go fishing there. My father wouldn’t let us go to the lake because we did not know how to swim.  

My hubby has always been a big fishing fanatic. He often serves as a fishing guide to our friends and family. When I first got here, I took to fishing on …
