Makes me hungry just thinking about a possible BBQ! Please folks don't forget to keep the "Skeeters" out of the yard while doing that BBQ. I found a great way to do this. Should you have rain gutters you will have to keep them squeaky clean. Stagnant water in them breeds "skeeters" and they carry the West Nile Virus. A simple, easy, fast, and safe method of cleaning rain gutters can be seen on-line at and you can also see how they make a nasty job cleaner and easier. I'm sold! Happy BBQ to All and Stay Well and Be Safe! Jean

You are absolutely right. Mothing ruins a great BBQ like those nasty skeeters. If you don't have gutters get them. If you do, make sure they are clean.
