Introduce your family to the magic of Yellowstone in winter, when the snow sets off the steaming, rainbow-colored pools and wildlife is easier to spot against the white landscape.

Marianne Riddile's insight:

Have seen 2 brown spiders in the bays of my coach in the past couple of days.  Thought it might be a brown recluse.  Killed the first one quickly but got a photo of the second.  It is not a brown recluse because it has striped legs.  This site was very helpful.

4 Foot Gardening Guide……worth the $7 « ModernSurvivalOnline.com | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
Indoor Gardening – something I have no experience with and this guide offers up some great information on crop selection and planting guide. Easy to follow and makes sense.Planting Basics – I am not talking about fluff. This section provides solid information you need to know to successfully grow your own food. Companion Planting – Another subject I have known nothing about although I have been gardening for many years.Best Methods for Finding Seeds – Really good tips to find heirloom, non-GMO seeds other than heading to your local grocery store or Wally World.Tips & Tricks – my favorite section by far at my current experience level. Not going to give away too any secrets but really cool stuff available on Craigslist is shown as well as how to decrease the work it takes to maintain your garden.

Visit the sawmill that was run by a wizard and his satanic imps... purportedly @roadtrippers.com | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

Mill Pond in Easton, Massachusetts is a weird place. According to pretty much anyone who visits, they have one heck of a fishin' pond, but it's the story that surrounds the body of water that's the really interesting part…

Just across the street from the Easton Cemetery is a mysterious sign that was erected by the Easton Conservation Commission in 1999. The sign marks the spot of an old sawmill built by a local man named John Selee in the 18th century and reads as follows:

'Site of the sawmill built by John Selee in the 18th century and continued by his son, Nathan, a wizard who purportedly used satanic imps to run the mill at night.'

 
Marianne Riddile's insight:

Now-a-days, said imps are called "Merry Maids" and they arrive in a white Prius full of cleaning supplies. --Come on down!

Florida scientists: Don't touch this bug | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
As far as bugs go, caterpillars are usually pretty tame – except for one.
Marianne Riddile's insight:

OMG--I have not encountered this one but I did get brushed by a a caterpillar that fell on my neck from an oak tree in South Carolina.  I was in agony for 2 days before finally going to a clinic and getting steroids to help relieve the swelling and pain.  By the way, if you get the caterpillar fuzz on you, you are supposed to use scotch tape to remove the hairs.  Do not try to brush them off. That makes it worse.
