Tick removal

A good one from a friend.

Helpful Tip on Removing Ticks

Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads.

Here is a good way to get them off you, your children, or your pets. Give it a try.

Please forward to anyone with children... or hunters or dogs, or anyone who

even steps outside in summer!!

A School Nurse has written the info below -- good enough to share -- And

it really works!!

I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick.

This is great, because it works in those places where it's some times difficult

to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair,

etc.

Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-

soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come

out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. This

technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and

it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me.

Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging

in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had

one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this

method and immediately called me back to say, 'It worked!'

Please pass on. Everyone needs this helpful hint

Good info Tom. I have found a few ticks crawling on the outside of my clothes already this year.

    •   Please feel free to elaborate and educate me.   With or without personal attacks. 
    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
