Diatomacious Earth (often referred to as "DE") is an off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as bed bugs, ants or fleas) it gets caught between their little exoskeleton joints. As they move, the diatomaceous earth acts like razor blades and cuts them up. But it doesn't hurt mammals. We can eat it. We do eat it! It's in lots of grain based foods because lots of grains are stored with diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs from eating the grain! http://www.richsoil.com

The Haps <That’s E checking out the garden. Heard a man tell of how he used to drink his own pee… That was a brave thing to do, tell a room of mostly strangers. Not that he didn’t have a good reason. It was to get high, from the ecstasy he had taken the night before. I for one did not know about people doing this. A real mind blower this was for me. Keep encouraging my wife to come with me to one of these meetings. I go because I don’t ever, ever want to repeat some of the behaviors I
used to engage in when I used to drink alcoholically. Those days are gone for Robert too. Thank fully he is still with us and is living a sober life for 11 yrs.

Herstory— Strong, Entrepreneurial, Empathetic, Mothers, Sisters, Wimmin. Naming themselves. Not believing the labels. Living, Loving and Giving of them selves w/the gifts they were endowed by the Creator. The Universe. Shockley, Ann Allen (b. 1927) Popular short story writer and novelist, as well as librarian, critic, and editor, Ann Allen Shockley treats both interracial and lesbian experiences. Shockley was born June 21, 1927, in Louisville, Kentucky, the daughter of social workers Bessie Lucas and Henry Allen. She received her B.A. in 1948 from Fisk University, where she worked for many years as archivist, librarian, and professor, and her M.S.L.S. in 1959 from Western Reserve, now Case Western Reserve. In 1949, she married teacher William Shockley, whom she later divorced. Shockley, who has named herself a "social[ly] conscious writer," extends her fictional treatment of interracial and lesbian experiences with her collection of short stories, The Black and White of It (1980), which celebrates the gains women have made in the wake of racial and sexual oppression. her second novel, Say Jesus and Come to Me (1982), situates its lesbian love story amid feminist meetings and religious revivals. The juxtaposition of evangelicalism and lesbianism is surprising and subversive.
Gaye Adegbalola (born Gaye Todd, March
21, 1944, Fredericksburg, Virginia, United States) is an American blues singer and guitarist, teacher, lecturer, activist, and photographer. Gaye's father, Clarence R. Todd, was the first Black school board member in Fredericksburg and was also a jazz musician. He later founded a performing arts group for black youth called "Souls of Shade", today known as Harambee 360. Her mother, Gladys P. Todd, was one of the first organizers of the local civil rights movement in Fredericksburg. Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women was first formed as a duo in 1984 by Ms. Adegbalola and her guitar teacher, Ann Rabson, with third member Earlene Lewis joining later to form a trio. Saffire recorded their first album on their own label in 1987, Middle Age Blues, with songs including "They Call Me Miss Thang," and "Middle Age Blues Boogie." The following year Gaye Adegbalola became a fulltime blues performer and in 1990 the band recorded its first album for Alligator Records Gaye's surname, Adegbalola, was given to her by a Yoruba priest she met in 1968. Meaning "I am reclaiming my royalty," Adegbalola uses the name to signify her pride in her black heritage.
