A while ago I wrote about my Maytag washer.
That break-down was actually a blessing in disguise. Because of that I started to use only a fraction of the Tide soap that I used before. It made my clothes so much softer and actually a bit cleaner too. I am a happy camper now.
Now about my Bee problem.
I asked Superstore where they buy their flowers and was told it is DeVry Greenhouses Ltd. in Chilliwack. I found their website on the net and left a message. A few days later they wrote and were very surprised that so many bees were dying after visiting that particular flower basket. They asked to have a picture of the basket and I sent one. They wanted to pick up the basket to test it and refund my money. I told them I would prefer another basket rather than money. That was the last of the correspondence. I wonder if I ever hear from them again so I wrote another email today. I will not let it rest though because if it happened with this one basket how many others are also affected and how many bees are yet to die. We are having enough problems with the lack of bees around Vancouver Island.
Now I will go back to listening to my audiobook “The Painted House” by John Steinbeck. I read the book twice already a long time ago and I love somebody reading to me.

Good night everybody ☺

Eating to fill out the wrinkles is a great idea! :)

Interesting problem about the bees. Keep us posted.

I hope they can fix whatever is wrong with the basket.

I've heard it said that almost everyone uses too much laundry detergent. I often wonder how such a small amount can clean a whole washer full of clothes.

With my new washer I'm confused about the soap as well. I keep combing the washer and bottle instructions but I still don't know how much to put in, especially since the washer weights the amount of laundry and thereby determines the water amount it uses. Maybe I need laundry scales!

It is a good thing you are doing for the bees. We are killing them out every where with all the poisons we use on our plants. Keep at them till you are satisfied.

It is a beautiful basket, though. I wonder what's going on with it?
That eating to fill out the wrinkles - I ate less and gained wrinkles. Works both ways. :(
I think you are right, we DO use too much laundry soap. I'm going to remember that.
