Bed Bugs!

April 17, 2009

In regards to this AP article about Bed Bugs which ran in the Danville Register & Bee the other day:   The article only focused on pesticides to control the little blood sucking pests, but there is another non-checmical alternative.  There’s a store in Roxboro, NC which has an oven specially designed for ‘cooking’ matresses.  It cooks them at 240 degrees for 2 hours effectively killing anything that might be living inside.  It’s located at E-Plus Thrift Flea Market Shop.  Their phone number is (336)599-3438.  It’s only $7.50 per mattress and it can cook pillows too.


Beach Party!

April 15, 2009

Summer is about to get underway in Danville!  Here’s an announcement that we got in the mail today that deserves to be shared with the community.

From the Piedmont Credit Union inbox:

On Saturday, May 30, 2009 from 5pm to 8pm the Danville Science Center will host a Beach Party by the Dan.  The entire family is invited to a fun-filled evening featuring music by the C. Shells, a musical duo from Virginia Beach.  With a delightful mix of songs and musical styles, the C. Shells will have children of all ages laughing, smiling, and stamping their feet.  Guests will enjoy a summer buffet, beach music, shag dancing and kid’s activities– to support a great Danville resource– the educational programs at the Science Center.

Ticket prices: Children age 4-9:$5; Ages 10-18: $10; Adults: $20; Children 3 and under are free.

My family has benefitted quite alot from visiting the Danville Science Center.  Over the last several years it has really expanded and begun to offer many new programs and exhibits.  Just to say the words “Science Center” causes my kids to celebrate and talk about what they’re going to do and see there.
