Bronze stars all over the place

Can someone please tell me what is up with the bronze star decorations that are popping up all of a sudden? Everyone seems to have one. Do you? Does it mean something? Were they all just on sale or something? WHAT?????? It's driving me nuts!

Hey, I can hate the West Nile Virus with the best of ‘em, but honestly, do you really have to come down my street with the mosquito poison truck? Really, this happens here.

So yesterday I was enjoying a bit of computer/ice cream time after the kids fell asleep when I heard the dreaded sound of the fogger truck coming towards our house. I started running around the house like a crazy woman shutting windows. (I’m probably the only one doing this because everyone else is using air conditioning already.) Luckily the kids slept through it all because I certainly wasn’t quiet about it. Despite my frantic window slamming, I didn’t make it to the upstairs windows. At least it didn’t come in the dining room or kitchen. I can’t imagine it’s good to have insecticide on your table or dishes. It just can’t be good.
