A little spark
From a holiday
Nearing

A bubble

Mosquito trap (it works!)


I know…summer is nearly over but we still suffer from mosquito. This takes 2 mn to do and from last night’s experience, it really works! (The idea came from a video I saw on a blogger’s post…http://huffygirl.wordpress.com/.)
The next video is heavy duty and expensive but it’s only for those who suffer from huge quantities of mosquito as Florida (which I was unaware of) I posted it just in case someone is in that position.
Let me know if you got as good results as I had with the first one!
Have a lovely weekend 🙂

Precise recipe.
200 ml water
75 gr sugar
1 tablespoon dried yeast

DIY MOSQUITO TRAP pesticide FREE mosquito control Solar Powered Fan West Nile Virus

Uploaded on Apr 20, 2011
This mosquito trap can kill thousands of mosquitos over a few day period.

Using a Maxx Air Flow fan 24″, the Orange one from The Home Depot $99 (EXCELLENT FANS) You can clean an area in a few nights breaking an uncontrolled population cycle. This option requires 250 watts of electricity but does not require any pesticides. The screens serve a dual purpose, they also collect dust and fine particulates and eventually form a mat of air junk. The screen provides an easy cleaning option and prevents dire from entering the bearings of the induction motor. The solar option uses a 27 watt blower fan and works great for pigeon and chicken coops, animal kennels and outdoor porches.

Place the fans near infested or high traffic areas. KEEP FANS DRY, no rain. Always Unplug when servicing screens or moving. Place the inlet side towards people or animals so you suck the mosquitos away. This also sucks in carbon dioxide creating an attraction trail for the mosquitos to follow sticking them to the back of the fan:-)

I have a few more options in the works:

WATER COLLECTION NESTS
By placing leaves and yard debris in the bottom of a container and filling it with water, the leaves decompose and provide an attractive spot for mosquitos to place their larvae. Once visible, you MUST collect the larvae with a fine fish net and dry them in the sun. This option prevent mosquitos from nesting in ditches and other areas where you cannot stop the cycle. YOU MUST clean daily or you create a mosquito farm.

BATS:

I have a DIY VIDEO on how to build a bat house and tips on getting bats to hang out:-)

Drew Dudley: Everyday leadership


This video came from the blogger,
http://waitingforthekarmatruck.com/2013/08/28/sometimes-i-get-the-message/
it made me smile the whole way through, it’s a true inspiration, not too long (6.15 mn)
and full of humor. The message goes through beautifully & in a fun way.
If we could try to live the way Drew Dudley is talking about, the world would’ve been
& will be,a better place to live in.
Enjoy it as much if not more, than I did 🙂

Nature’s gems

A gem found in the rain

I bequeath myself to the storms,
To the rain I love, falling gently
Or brutally unto the Oceans marking
Their way, digging tears into the
Grain of shores… bringing out the
Gems of yonder, tempting them out
Of their daily modicum of privacy
And fashioning as a jest, a grand
Exit by beaming scintillae betwixt
Feral clouds thereupon supplanting
Yestereve’s majestic sunset.

A memorable day in Relaxing sea wave sounds #2


This time I managed this video on my own about 95 %! It’s the sea as it was today, windy, cloudy and sunny. I hope you like the music choice. It’s less shaky this time round but I still could use a tripod (it’s on my list).
Enjoy it and let me know if you have any suggestions for further improvement… there’s always room for that!
Thanks to all for your constant support, it’s thoroughly appreciated 🙂

Published on Aug 25, 2013
This is my second video on You tube. I’ve tried to make some improvements and hope you’ll enjoy the relaxing sounds of the waves accompanied by music. Positive feedback is always welcome!

Fascinating Nature – The Most Spectacular Landscapes in the World


I know, it’s 1 hour 29 mn but… (there always is one :)) for those artists out there wanting to be inspired by fascinating landscape where every second of the movie is another masterpiece… this is your chance to grab and watch 🙂
I put my laptop on pause and rapidly sketched 3 landscapes of Namibia’s desert so as to remember shapes and colors for my future projects.
Here they are. Do you like them?

Flying high… or diving… seagulls are never dull!


I am the king! ©copyright2013owpp

I am the king!

The seagull is never dull
It flies high or dives
steeply spreading wide
Its wings…looking
Groomed and all neat
In its pedicured feet
Takes a stroll on the beach
Or watches from its tower
Diligently counting and
Recounting those who might have
Gone missing, falling asleep,
Roasting too deep… 🙂

Video:The Space We Need: An Introvert Wakes Up, Slows Down and Starts Living According to Her True Nature


I seem to find more & more posts I feel the need to reblog. This is one of them. A perfect five minutes to watch if you are part of the fifty percent of introverts and if you are not, you will understand the friends you have who are, even more 🙂

Don’t explain your philosophy. Embody it. ~ Epictetus

Something new for space2live… a short film (5 minutes, it’s worth it).  A visual to enhance the many words spilled on the pages of this site. Through filmmaker, Nic Askew’s, beautiful lens the experience, rather than the explanation, of an introvert is captured and shared in a soul biography. You’ll feel the honesty and vulnerability.  Enjoy.

THE SPACE WE NEED from Nic Askew on Vimeo.

How did you like the visual message vs. a written one? Was there a part of the film that spoke to you?

How GMO foods alter organ function and pose a very real health threat to humans


I just read the post and saw the video of
http://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/seeds-of-truth-i-am-sowing/
on GMO foods (a subject I’m not too familiar with) and as a result found another fascinating video on you tube on GMO foods which is very clear in translating the complicated terms into plain language we all can understand.
I can practically guaranty you will be very careful next time you buy your food at the supermarket because now, you will have understood the obscure alleys of the food industry, won’t be a victim anymore and make the right choices for your loved ones.
Let me know if it was as determinant for you as it was for me 🙂
