Darlene’s Commentary: Anybody being bothered by bugs? We have had a majestic wildflower bloom and I thank Mother Nature for her abundance, and most of us made it through the allergies and pollen. I think Mother Nature deserves a rest, but Mother Nature doesn’t think so – she has plans! Suddenly, moths, grasshoppers, flying ants, black beetles, pincher bugs, cockroaches and little green flies are into your clothes, eyes, mouth and hair. And if you happen to look at the ground, you’ll find large black ants, small red ants, brownish ants and teeny-weeny black ants that go in circles instead of a trail! Other trails are like a freeway of ants hurrying this way and that. Maybe the abundant wildflowers this spring had too much protein. I’ve noticed that many insects look a little larger than last year.

There is a darling little tiny Wayside Chapel out in front of the Glass Outhouse Art Gallery, 77575 29 Palms Highway at Thunder Road. It is open year around and is well worth a look. Just drive up, park and look inside on your own – no charge or hassle. Everyone is welcome to just admire the beautiful interior or to stay awhile if you wish. This is a unique and fantastic place to show your visitors from out-of-town. For further information, call Laurel at 760-367-3807.
Handy Hint: Tankless water heaters are expensive, but they will save you at least $150 each year because they provide hot water on demand instead of keeping the water hot all the time.
Today’s Thought: “I was going to have plastic surgery until I noticed that the doctor’s office was full of portraits by Picasso.” – Rita Rudner
Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the WONDERs all around us.
