In general, I hate the animal kingdom, and all its members hate me. Every kind of pest has invaded my space: raccoons, mice and now ants. A deer almost wrecked my ccar a year or so ago, and squirrels keep eating the bulbs I plant. In general, everything smaller than an elephant is my enemy, and I sm theirs.
I have ants! Every year, in the Spring, they invade my house, and every year they are smaller. The first year, I had normal size aints, about the size of a fly or a little bigger. The next year, they were smaller. Those that started the Winter--of all the nerve!--are even smaller. I suppose that eventually they will be the size of microbes and I won't be able to see them.
It really annoyed me that they came at this time of year; I consider it unsporting of them. The antbaits I put out this past Spring are inoperative, and I can't find new ones in the stores.
So when I saw a few humdred of them creeping around my stovetop I was so enraged that I picked up the nearest spray can and pumped the contents all over them. It happened to be Scrubbing Bubbles. I poured it on all the surfaces of the kitchen, and lo and behold they were gone! So I have discovered a non-poisonous antkiller.
Peace has been reigning for days now. However, I used the bathroom adjoining the kitchen, and I saw one--just one--on the floor. So I guess they will be coming back.

What a pygmy he is! Criticizing the American Presidency but too gutless to mention the name Trump!
This is truly a cheap shot. France is a mess, areas of Paris are No Go places because they are governed by either Muslims or criminals (But how can you tell the difference?). Cars are burned in the streets. Jews are attacked on the streets while just minding their business. A bit of national shame is in order.
And they criticize us, who saved their country, spending our blood and treasure to insure that they lived another day to insult us. They, who would not fight to save themselves but left it to others.
I'm not defending Trump--he can take care of himself. But Macron has no right to try to shame the United States in the presence of our elected leader. They are not fit to drink the water in which we wash our socks.
Just another smart-ass with an unwarranted sense of superiority to the crude Americans.
