RENTAL BUZZ
  Bzzzz... Want to keep the mosquitos away?

Since the downturn in the economy the town is not spraying for mosquitos the way they used to...so it is up to the homeowners to keep the bugs away. An easy and affordable solution is to hire Dennis Cunningham. He can be reached at 508.292.1814. A bonus, is that spraying also helps to keep the ticks at bay. Most importantly, do not keep standing water on your property, otherwise the larvae breed and spread. Also, mosquitoes are attracted to bright lights - as are a lot of other early evening or nighttime bugs. It's always a good idea to turn down the lights in the evening to reduce your chances of being bitten by mosquitoes. Looking for a natural remedy? Spraying garlic can keep mosquitoes away as well.

NOTES FROM PEPPER
  Golden Armadillos

I realize you want to know, and I acknowledge that it is my responsibility, to fill you in on the world of armadillo wrestling. Well, we've been co-opted by Vince McMahon and his WWF, which will now have, not only mano a mano armadillo wrestling, but also tag team armadillo wrestling as well. What to do with Libby's armadillo farm in Ocala Fl.? I believe there is strong demand for armadillo skin cowboy boats and armadillo skin Top Siders, not to mention armadillo skin pill box hats. Speaking about commodities: Avoid your base metals (steal etc.), because I don't believe we will have a housing recovery any time soon. In the same breath, go long natural gas (no, I don't mean Barney Frank) and go long gold, always gold. As you know, I equate gold with high quality Nantucket real estate. The difference, obviously, is that they don't make any more Nantucket. In fact, parts of Nantucket are losing land and the conservation groups are consistently buying large parcels, so the available supply is actually shrinking. The Fighting Armadillos? The Yale Fighting Armadillos; it does have a ring to it.
