Chamber Mixer Musings by Betty Birdsell As chair of the mixer committee, I'd like to thank all of you who frequent the monthly Chamber mixers. You make it lots of fun. I'd also like to give you a little incentive to bring a friend to the next mixer that will be held at 5:30 PM on Thursday, August 4th at the famous Menghini Winery. If you'll bring a friend to the mixer, we'll give you and your friend a free raffle ticket. If that friend joins the Chamber, we'll give you and your friend ten raffle tickets each. The Chamber mixer is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your business. I'm sure there are many local events that your fellow Chamber members would like to know about, so feel free to keep us all informed about whatever interests you. Just let me know at the beginning of the mixer, so I can put you on the agenda. You don't have to be a member to speak at the mixer, so don't hesitate to step right upY I, for one, will be looking forward to seeing you in August. Should you have any questions about participating as a host or in attending a mixer, please call me at 760-765-0714 or Krisie at the Chamber office.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey Some Things, I've Been Thinking About I often ask people to shop local businesses. About 90 % of my business at Julian Yesteryears is from locals, friends and people returning to my shop after previous visits. Thank you all! You are keeping my business alive and you are keeping me less cranky. My husband Mike appreciates that! Last week a local lady thanked me for the reminder to shop local. She looked for an item at Home Depot. They had it in the wrong color. Remembering to try a local business, she shopped at the Julian Hardware Store and found what she wanted in the right color and it was less expensive than Home Depot's price. And I add here that most of us live a lot closer to Julian Hardware than we do to Home Depot. rve also been told that electrical supplies at Julian Hardware are much less expensive than the prices at the big stores. Got Milk? Milk costs less at Don's Market in Santa Ysabel than at the big chain grocery stores. Save your gas and time. Shop at local businesses. Need gluten free food? Jack's Grocery on Main Street in Julian is stocking more and more gluten free foods. Sometimes as women get older, they get large tummies. If this has happened to you, check with your doctor to see if you are healthy. If you are indeed healthy, consider taking gluten out of your diet. This means you can't eat wheat, rye or barley. They all have gluten. This means I can't eat Redvines because they have wheat. However, t can still eat Doritos, Tostitos and Cheetos if my only concern is with gluten. love my shredder. A few years ago our friends Nancy and Ed gave us a shredder. They bought a better shredder, but since we didn't own one, having one is a step up. I like to shred all of our papers that have our personal information, credit card numbers, social security numbers and account numbers of any kind. Some papers we have to keep for tax and legal purposes. It's amazing how many other papers I can find to shred. I bag and save the shredded paper to light up a fire in my fireplace on a wet, cool summer evening or on any wet winter day or evening. Sometimes shredding paper isn't enough. It's also good to completely get rid of it. Burning it in the fireplace works. I don't shred newspapers in my shredder. Newspapers are good to use as mulch in my yard, so I rip it up to put around plants or I put the ripped up paper in my compost because worms love the vegetable inks used in newspapers. Around plants, newspaper always needs to be covered with some dirt so the paper doesn't blow away. Before saving furniture, dishes or other things for my children and grandchildren; I ask them if they actually want me to save inherited things for them. rve compared my children with those of my friends and mostly the kids don't want most of what we have collected, so I sell or give away whatever I have collected while rm alive so I can use the money I make or the space in my home that I create. Why burden children with the things that we love that don't mean anything to them? Downsizing is a good idea anyway, and those of us who have lived through more than one fire evacuation know how mentally exhausted we get when we have to chose one precious treasure over another because we don't have 'room in our vehicles for everything. Did you know that we have a bargain store in Wynola Farms Marketplace? Cindy Anderson and Sandra Sevilla have great prices on new and slightly used items. They have clothes that are 50% off the original low price, a few new camping supplies, some Princess House items, lots of jigsaw puzzles, cps, videos, earrings and useful items. In these~lean financial tim~s, tl~, is what Julian needs P ease support them by buying the items they have in excellent condition for very fair prices. If we don't buy from them, they will close down, like all businesses will close their doors if we don't help them. In response to my column about getting rid of ants, Krisie Morgan at the Julian Chamber of Commerce office found some ant traps that get rid of ants totally, within two days. Barb Hedrick sprinkles Boraxo washing powder around the outside of her house as a barrier. Boraxo sprinkled into the trunk of a freshly cut down tree will kill the stump. Alan Marvin sprinkles concrete powder across ant trails as a barrier. Like the powders I mentioned in my column, ants don't like barrier powders because they coat their tiny legs. A good way to kill mice and rats is by mixing dry concrete powder with powdered sugar. Place it in a jar lid next to a jar lid full of fresh water. They eat the sweet stuff, get thirsty and without poison, they die. Since they don't ingest poison, it's okay for other animals to eat them. Sherry Engberg has written to me with some very good information about getting rid of ants. Some adds to what Krisie Morgan said. Hi Michele, We fought them (ants) last year and I think the following reference was my inspiration. 20-Mule team Borax (available for a couple of bucks at the (Julian) hardware store is really helpful. It's like a soap, not really toxic, but the powder gets taken back to the nest and I think dehydrates the ants. Anyway I've begun that treatment with the new visitors. Another note is that lizards eat ants. So I don't want to use heavy -duty poisons because we have lots of lizards. Here's what I found online: The most common ant baits used to get rid of sugar ants are called sweet baits, and the most common ingredient found in sweet ant baits is boric acid, or Borax. Most household ants (pharaoh ants, pavement ants, and little black ants included) are prone to the poison known as Borax. Borax is a mineral mined in the deserts of California, refined and dissolved into all manners of ant bait systems. It is generally non- toxic to humans, though I wouldn't recommend inhaling or ingesting large amounts of it. It is a stow-acting poison, which means that when the ants eat the bait (usually corn syrup), the poison doesn't kill the ants right away. The ants take some of the sweet bait back to the colony with them and dispense the poison meal to other ants. This is how colonies of ants are exterminated, and sugar ants are the easiest ants to kill because they're small, voracious scavengers. If you want to get rid of sugar ants or kill a sugar ant colony quickly, I prefer Terro brand sugar ant baits. I think that in two columns we've given lots of advice on getting rid of ants and I covered a few other subjects also. These are my thoughts. What in heck, you may ask, is "East of Pine Hills"? Isn't everything out that road, that clearly labeled Pine Hills Road just before the Methodist Church, "Pine Hills?" The Julian News 5 ACCEPTING CA~F~NIA~ Groceries Produce. Sundries Beet.

In the background is the City Hall in Stockholm where the Nobel prizes are given. They are standing on a bridge going to Gamla Stan (Old Town). Yes and No. The Pine Hills of history and legend, the spot where San Diego's elite had summer cabins and where the Lodge served spirits Back in the Day when that Wasn't Done (kind of like marijuana these days) is pretty specific. That's the High Rent District, the "in" address of small, steep lots, many houses, and a Water District. We're not there. Of course, where we are was moving up for the family since Great Grandfather Hoover started in Santa Ysabel, Grandfather Barnes lived inWynola for a while before Ed and Virginia Barnes Skagen bought the place here...east of Pine Hills. That's several hundred feet a generation. Not bad. But it's still not the high rent district. Rather, it's a lovely little area of meadows and gentle hills dotted with oaks and pines and lying, well, to the East of Pine Hills. We have more space over here for the most part (except for the lots Mr. Heise carved out along what is now Belvedere) and more flattish terrain though pretty much nothing up here is really flat. A lot of strangers know where it is because they pass through it on the way to Heise Park (another legacy of Mr. Heise) but a surprising number of Julian residents don't. Having space, we tend to have more animals and orchards than Pine Hills proper. In some areas you find that you have stepped into the past--sort of a Brigadoon, here today and gone when you sight SDG&E poles but who said Brigadoon was comfortable as well as romantic. Some of us remember not having electricity and, believe us, it's better with than without. But like Brigadoon, we have a lot of stories. Many will appear in this column in future weeks. Some of them are true. ! i" i-
