My Sturgis Adventure! All I could say was - WOW!


 
WOW!  What a trip -8 days. 9 hours. 2442 miles. We love our biker friends: When it rains you put on rain gear. When it hails you pull over. When it's sunny you bask in it. When its windy you lean. You help someone in need and you always enjoy the ride! I have never been to the Black Hills of South Dakota before and it is beautiful! We stayed in Custer but rode to, through and around Hill City, Keystone, Deadwood, Lead, Rapid City, Sturgis and everywhere inbetween!  We saw the beautiful Custer State Park with the wild buffalo (those animals are HUGE), the 4 Presidents on Mount Rushmore, the stone carving memorial of Chief Crazy Horse that is still under construction, met the owner of the 'Buglin Bull' restaurant who has the same name as my husband...and saw bikes of every kind and color!  Hope you enjoy the attached photos...to quote my husband Brian, Life Is Good!

 Welcome to Sturgis!!

Our riding friends!

 Bison - real, wild buffalo!! They are HUGE!


 You meet all kinds at the Harley Rally!  This guy's been here awhile at the Hitching Post!

 Celebrities of all kinds are here - even the Budweiser Clydesdales!

10 surprising household uses for Lemons

I told you earlier about a great idea for mosquito repellant using LIMES and cloves (if you missed it check on my earlier blog post.) but here are some rather suprising household uses for Lemons!  I knew about using lemons on cutting boards and to clean copper pots - I also put the used lemon in my garbage disposal - but I didn't know about the cleaning of metal jewelry or dealing with cats or the other uses!  Guess I'll be stocking up on those lemons as well as the limes!

Did you knew you could use lemons for all these household tasks?
