Some News and Updates

Hey neighbors!

I have notified all winners of giveaways that have ended.  Not all winners have responded yet.  I am allowing a little extra time due to the holidays and everyone's busy schedule.  If they do not respond I will be choosing other winners.

To all winners who have already responded, your information has been forwarded to the sponsors.  Please remember that winning emails will be sent from blessed6mom at or atthefence at  The subject line will  read, "You won At the Fence!"

I have some nice giveaways coming up in the next week or two, so please be sure to stop by At the Fence for a visit to find out what is going on here.

Some new changes to At the Fence this coming year.  I will be rating products reviewed with a new ranking system.  I will use a sign that will have anywhere from 1-5 symbols to rate the product.  The symbols may change with the seasons.

1 symbol - Not Satisfactory
2 symbols - Not That Great
3 symbols - Average
4 Symbols - Above Average
5 Symbols - Outstanding

I will also be adding a photo day where we will share some of the photos we have taken that week.  I have not decided on what day or what we will call it, but I will appreciate your comments.

Giveaways will continue to be hosted on Rafflecopter.  Please spread your daily Tweets out some.  I still have some people tweeting all three right in a row.  The whole idea is to spread them out and share them with others.  I have recently started adding entries for sharing on your Facebook page and will continue to do so.

Giveaways are now listed in the sidebar.  Apparently the giveaway page was not working well, and it is more difficult for me to keep updated as a page.

I will be starting up the Surprise Boxes again.  I took a break over the holidays as we were quite busy just keeping up with the product reviews and giveaways.  I would like some ideas on themes for the Surprise Boxes so please leave a comment.

Last request.  If you have any ideas to improve At the Fence please leave a comment.  Maybe you have an idea for the design or how At the Fence giveaways are run.  Or perhaps you have some review or giveaway suggestions.  Please share them.

One last bit of news.  I extended the Terracycle giveaway as it had no entries.  Imagine my surprise when I checked and the Rafflecopter was not showing up.  Please, please, please, if you notice something like this, shoot me an email and I will correct the problem.

Thank you for stopping by At the Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
