Bounce this Along

The US Postal service sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet of Bounce in their uniform pockets to keep yellow-jackets away.
Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer.  I use it when I am working outside.  It really works.  The insects just veer around you.
All this time you’ve just been putting
Bounce in the dryer!
1. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.  It also repels mice.
2. Spread sheets around foundation areas, or in trailers, or cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.
3. It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don’t get opened too often.
4. It repels mosquitoes.  Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.
5. Eliminate static electricity from your television (or computer) screen.
6. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.
7. Dissolve soap scum from shower doors.  Clean with a sheet of Bounce.
8. To freshen the air in your home – Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.
9. Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.
10. Prevent thread from tangling.  Run a threaded needle through a sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.
11. Prevent musty suitcases.  Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.
12. To freshen the air in your car – Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.
13. Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan.  Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean.  The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the pan.
14. Eliminate odors in wastebaskets.  Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.
15. Collect cat hair.  Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will magnetically attract all the lose hairs.
16. Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds.  Wipe the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.
17. Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering.  A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.
18. Eliminate odors in dirty laundry.  Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.
19. Deodorize shoes or sneakers.  Place a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

5.29.2010 Things to Do On The Knob for Memorial Day

Standley’s Auction is the number one thing to attend in the morning!  Brian has a collection of items you have got to see!  It is his 9th Annual Summer Ozarks Fun Auction.  Come Early and check out boats, motors, trailers, golf carts, rods, reels, tackle, minnow buckets, and a hundred other items to make your summer a lot of fun!

After the auction, at 3 pm, come join Jug-N-Plug and On the Bayou for live music with all you can eat food and drinks.  Jug-N-Plug will be offering Specials on their bottled drinks at the store. 

Remember to practice safe boating practices all week-end long.  The lake is GREAT! But it needs our protection from trash, boaters who drive too fast and may be drinking. Children both large and small need to be watched carefully.  Be CAREFUL!  Sunscreen and bug spray are essentials.  Country Fresh Market carries both items  with some great steaks and all the trimmings.

Let us remember that MEMORIAL DAY is meant to celebrate the efforts of the service men and women to protect our country and to  celebrate the democracy that we use every day to make this country great.

There was a bad motorcycle wreck this evening at Viola


5.25.2010 Motorcycle Riders Hurt at Viola Wednesday Night

About 6:30 pm, there was an accident involving a car and a motorcycle that were going south on Highway 39 between the Viola Baptist Church and the Hill Tire Company. Witness, Suann Engman says that she was slowing and turning right into a tire replacement garage when a motorcycle with two riders ran up the rear of a blue Yaris the car behind her car. The motorcycle riders apparently saw an on-coming pickup truck and choose to take the middle of the road as an escape route.

Help for Motorcycle Rider Hurt on Highway 39 south of Shell Knob

An ambulance by chance was on route to Golden, Missouri when they happened upon the accident. Emergency medical care was administered almost immediately. Traffic was backed up for over a mile but it was well-managed by the Central Crossing First Responders.


5.24.2010 Tuesday’s Storm Brings Intense Lightning Strikes

Lightening Hits SUV in St. John’s Parking Lot on Tuesday

by Paula Andersen 

The Spring storms hit hard in the Shell Knob area on Tuesday.  At 3 pm, the lightning started by dimming the lights in the businesses on Bridgeway Plaza at Shell Knob, Missouri.  By 3:15 pm the Central Crossing Fire Department trucks started rolling in response to  the damage reports that started arriving. Trees down and a car fire was the first report from St. John’s office just south of the Central Crossing Bridge.  The vehicle was struck by lightning and the two cars sitting next to it were scorched.  Fire Chief Rusty Rickard, reported that this was an unusual incident but the firefighters had the fire out in minutes.  Local residents reported electrical outages and crews were out and making repairs.

Trees were blown down on lake front property.

Thanks to Marlene for this one

                 Never Argue with a Woman

          One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside

      cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.

    Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.

         She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up,

                        and begins to read her book.

                   The peace and solitude are magnificent.

                Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat.

   He pulls up alongside the woman and says, ‘Good morning, Ma’am. What are     you doing?’

       ‘Reading a book,’ she replies, (thinking, ‘Isn’t that obvious?’)

            ‘You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,’ he informs her.

           ‘I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing.. I’m reading.’

                 ‘Yes, but I see you have all the equipment.

                For all I know you could start at any moment.

                 I’ll have to take you in and write you up.’

    ‘If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,’ says the woman.

            ‘But I haven’t even touched you,’ says the Game Warden.

                ‘That’s true, but you have all the equipment..

               For all I know you could start at any moment.’

                     ‘Have a nice day ma’am,’ and he left.


                     Never argue with a woman who reads.    It’s likely she can also think..
