Will pepper spray work?
I was considering getting some as the dogs behind me mauled another dog  (blind in one eye, collapsed lung, laceration on its front leg, back claws broken off from resisting being pulled under) by pulling it under the fence between the yards. Animal control says we can't do anything as long as the dogs are fenced in. But, it is just a matter of time before they dig a big enough hole to get under the fence - as it is, they look like they can make it over the fence if they try hard enough.  Animal control told me to build a privacy fence with my own money.  TG we are moving soon.  I swear if those dogs come in my yard and get anywhere near my kids, I will be tempted to shoot them.  They have bitten two neighbors already.
Be careful with pepper spray, you'll get your dogs too

and possibly yourself if the wind is blowing just right.  The stuff is extremely powerful and won't just bring down the offending animal.

I agree with calling animal control, as they are the "animal police" and the "people police" won't even bother. 

The dog owner needs to be reported whether he was in his yard trying to get his dog back in or not.  Sure, maybe the dog "got loose," but he should have at least been decent enough to apologize.


Here's a tip: Put fabric softener and hot water in spray bottle and spray the paper down. Works

DON'T use the RED PEPPER! Can you
imagine if you had surgery and got capsaicin from the peppers in the wound?  OUCH!  Try men's or boy's underpants.  Turn them around backwards so you can pull the tail through the crotch hole, then pull the waistband tight and safety pin it.  We used to use that for our female breeding dogs who were in heat.  Otherwise, you can try him for a few minutes at a time without the collar to see if he'll leave it alone.
LOL!! :) Me too...with salt and pepper too! NM
Be careful using hot pepper and such
Animals will literally scratch out their eyes if they get that near them.  There are other more humane options depending on the animal.
Cayenne pepper may help

look up "health benefits of cayenne pepper" on Google and/or www.curezone.com.

Some of the benefits are amazing, and pain relief is one of them, increased blood flow to extremities, etc.

Gotta have Dr. Pepper
The phone, cell phone, TV remote, lots of post-it notes, the blinds up on the window for sunshine (if I'm lucky). The standards already mentioned, Kleenexe's, q-tips, fan, lotion.

Things that I have to have but not by choice........the dogs at my feet (hopefully not on the pedal), the cat roaming around annoying the dogs, and last but not least, hubby in the next room snoring away! (thank heavens for noise cancelling headphones!)
No, he is salt and pepper so it is really hard...

FeBreeze Air Spray

It eliminates odors in the air rather than covering them up. It comes in a variety of scents so you are bound to find one that you like.

We have a very small kitchen so cooking odors saturate the whole house, plus, to make matters worse,  we have a dog so I always use the Febreeze air spray to get rid of odors in the air & regular Febreeze for the sofa, curtains, etc. Its a life saver!!

Red hot pepper poured in the garden works wonders. sm
I had moles and rabbits and cats eating everything in mine so I poured red pepper and bought a cheap can of jalapeno peppers and threw them around as well. As if by magic, all the animals went away. I just got the cheap 2 for $1 stuff at Dollar General.
Can't carry a tune
I can NOT sing either, but after a couple of drinks I will. I refuse to go alone or duet with a guy. I have found that going up in a group helps. You can still sing, but let other people help. I used to go often, but it has been awhile. I suggest trying it just once. In a group is the safest. It really is fun.
I use Endust Electronics spray...
Look for a blue can. I'd never use anything else. It's also antistatic.

Other than that, you can get those special LCD cleaning kits (they come in packs of wrapped towelettes)-just look in the Office Depot catalog.
oh, when done? Spray Lysol Disinfectant...nm

Spray-painting daughter

Another thing that matters is the composition of the pavement, concrete vs. blacktop for example.  Concrete is porous, and has a tendency to absorb paint into the pores rather than it just sitting on the surface.  Heh.  Relax, and think how much you would enjoy their little art project 20 years from now.  It will wear off eventually.

maybe spray outside the house around the base? NM
try Listerine in a spray bottle
it works in my car.  I had problems with ants getting in the car during summer. I was told to spray (soak) the carpet, and WA la... no more ants!! 
BBQ shrimp, red pepper and squash; garden salad, new potatoes.

toss in olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika

I just found the best spray for June bugs sm
and spiders, ants and those yukky black and yellow bees that go in the ground. I have June bugs something awful this year, hundreds banging around my house. And those bees were so bad last year I couldn't get in the garden, they had invaded everything and got in the house as well. I talked to a farmer who used this stuff called Suspend. He said it really worked but it was expensive.  I found some on the web and mixed a couple gallons and went around the foundation, under the decks and sprayed a bunch in every bee hole I could find and wow, it's like magic. I haven't seen one bee scouting around the holes, no ants in the house anymore or in the gardens and not one spider. We get those big wolf spiders and I found 4 dead ones in the alley. It's great. It's $40.00 for a bottle (I think its a pint) and it makes around 11 gallons. I bought it at http://www.doyourownpestcontrol.com.  No, I am not a distributor nor do I make any money off referrals. Just recommending something I finally found has worked.
Dog doesn't carry a gun, none of his team does. sm
His story is actually very interesting. I know he is abrasive at first adn the wife is a real piece of work, but they really do try to help the people they round up. Dog is a born-again Christian, and he tries to help the people straighten their lives out, isn't in it just for the case. In fact, his own son is in jail for 20 years because of drugs, and so he has a personal motivation for getting drug dealers off the streets. I never miss the show, I find him inspiring because he found his nitch in the world to try to work for good. Unconventional, but he really sincerely tries.
Do any of you ICs out there carry your own liability insurance if
you are working for an MTSO?  I do not carry this insurance and was looking for what you all can advise me.  Thanks.

i've done it recently as carry-on
and had no problems, not even any q's.
so glad it worked! Carry on! nm
Spray paint is oil based. Regular cleaners
will not remove it. My recommendation is for you to go to the paint department of your local Home Depot or Lowe's and ask them. They should be very knowledgable about it. I used to work in the paint department at Home Depot, but it was a loooooong time ago, so I cannot remember what product you should use.
That is just because it is the first posting, and the first company ad. Carry on down the list.
Do Office Max or Staples carry the ones you mentioned?
Those are the only two office stores we have within an hour drive of me. Which models in particular would you recommend??? I do need to keep the price down, whether I buy them or the doctor's office does.

I do appreciate your feedback. :)
The reason I don't tip is because I NEVER have a dime on me. I don't carry cash, ever! I don&#
debit card and it's been like that for 4 years. I use a check or credit card for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!
You shouldn't have to carry dead weight.
Give her a clear outline of your expectations and say do this or I will have no choice but to find someone who will.
I just make like a meat loaf mixture with egg, cracker crumbs, salt, pepper, egg and milk. SM
Form into patties, cook with some chopped or sliced onions, then add an envelope of gravy mix and water, cook a few minutes. Easy, you can add other stuff or use canned gravy. Enjoy!

If you're going to be covered in bug spray & slapping at skeeters, I'd be as comfie as I could
I guess Healthfood stores would carry these items.
Headers and Footers can carry on to the rest of the pages.
I do not carry E&O insurance, but I do have my equipment covered under my HO policy.
My office is in my home and, God forbid, there should be a fire, I'd be out of business. I have coverage for my computer, printer, fax, phones and loss of use on a separate rider. Also, should anyone injury themselves coming or going from my office while doing business with me, their injuries are covered. Perhaps this is the information you're looking for.
I carry my laptop in a case with a shoulder strap and...sm
put my keyboard and foot pedal in my rolling luggage. it has worked fine so far. I will say that the next upgrade for me will be a much lighter weight smaller laptop.

to carry on a long drawn out thread on supervisor's woes below

Why in the world if it is so awful, so stressful, so thankless and pay is not that much more (someone posted $3 dollars an hour below), why do you continue to supervise?  


Also the general tone of the supervisors is kind of like they don't really like or respect the MTs.  Is that healthy?

Some of the craft stores like Michael's carry them in funky colors, too. nm
I carry my mail in, sort it immediately, and put the junk in the trash.
Google search shows TigerDirect and belkin.com both carry this. nm
I started using paper towels and a disinfectant spray. Washcloths were starting to gross me out..sm

I know it may be a waste of paper towels, but I feel safer and cleaner.
