Most gardeners know that lots on insects in the garden are what keep things “in the pink.” Of all the insects in the garden, the ladybug is one of the most recognizable and helpful. They are a friend – no, a best friend – of the gardener. They just love to make a meal of those dreaded aphids. Not only that, they look so darned cute.

I frequently hear about Internet users who always clean all of their cookies, citing fears of privacy issues or identity theft. If I ask some of those users what an Internet cookie is, I receive a variety of replies indicating a multiplicity of definitions varying from somewhat accurate to wildly inaccurate. There is equal misunderstanding about the functions of cookies and the degree of risk they pose to the user.

There seems to be one cold front behind the other now coming through Southeast Texas. For those of us that prefer staying warm, the cold is only tolerable. For those of us that enjoy the lower temperatures, the cold fronts are welcome. I’ll say here that what is cold in Southeast Texas is not cold in the more northern areas. That is unless you add in the wind and humidity. That situation does close the cold gap.

A few days ago, I was at a South Texas feed store that also sells deer blinds and feeders. Something caught my eye — three blinds. One was painted in UT burnt orange, another was Texas A&M maroon and the other was hot pink in honor of breast cancer awareness. I mentioned something in regards to the traditional camouflage green stands to the salesman. The guy laughed and said they had actually sold quite a few of the odd colored blinds. It seems that deer no longer care what color the blind or feeder is as long as it’s still slinging tasty nuggets of corn.
