From time to time there are giveaways of mosquito fish. Mosquito fish can consume large quantities of insect larvae in your pond or other standing bodies of water. By reducing the mosquito population, you can reduce your risk of contracting mosquito-borne diseases including the West Nile Virus. These fish are not native, they are invasive species. These fish are only meant for closed/stagnant ponds. They should not be placed into ponds that can drain into the local creeks and streams. This can have negative impacts on the native ecosystem.… [read more]

FIRES AND FOOD SAFETY - USDA

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRIGULTURE #81311726


Generally, saving food that's been in a fire is not a good idea. Food exposed to fire can be compromised by three factors: the heat of the fire, smoke fumes, and chemicals used to fight fire. 

Heat from the Fire
Food in cans or jars may appear to be okay, but if they've been close to the HEAT of a fire, they may no longer be safe. Why? Heat from a fire can activate food spoilage bacteria. If the heat is extreme, the cans or jars themselves can split or rupture, rendering the food unsafe.

Fumes from a Fire
One of the most dangerous elements of a fire is sometimes not the fire itself, but TOXIC FUMES released from burning materials. Those fumes can kill; they can also contaminate food. Any type of food stored in permeable packaging — cardboard, plastic wrap, etc. — should be thrown away. Toxic fumes can permeate the packaging and contaminate the food. Discard any raw foods stored outside the refrigerator — such as potatoes or fruit — that could be contaminated by fumes.
