Re: Diana's revival!

Re: a bedbug trap is coming to market

LWW - have you ever looked in propane mosquito traps (used to generate the CO2)?

No interest in paying a lawyer a single penny more to correct said mistake in the drafting of a divorce decree that is now 4.5 years stale.

Thank you! That sounds delicious.
