    mosquito problem

    Have you tried the bug zappers? I have also heard good things about Cutters brand "Backyard Bug Spray" to get rid of mosquitos. I saw it at Lowe's for around $8 a bottle and the instructions seem very easy: it connects to your hose like Miracle Grow Feeder. Good luck! I know how pesky they can be!

    Indoor Light

    I live in an apartment (that I'm leasing) that does not have any ceiling lights. I'm currently using tons of lamps with high wattage bulbs and still I feel like I'm living in the dark. How hard would it be to install ceiling lights? Any suggestions on better light bulbs?

    bathroom colors - suggestions please

    I thinik that a light/pastel yellow for a bathroom adds a very nice touch. It brightens up the place; however, just be wary of the bright yellows.

    Firewood or gas logs

    Natural logs are the best for a fireplace - there is some authenticity to it. And nothing beats the smell of burning wood ... and gas is getting to be incredibily expensive.
