For all of our listeners and website readers, thank you for making the 2011 Great Backyard Giveaway such a success. We would like to thank our very generous contest sponsors, the California Redwood Association, X Grass, Barbeques Galore, Grip-Tite and Culinart Media for the prizes. This year's grand prizewinner is Liz of Napa, California. Liz recently purchased a home in Clear Lake, California and is working at remodeling it. Her winnings will surely be put to good use. Congratulations, Liz. We want to see the photographs of your yard and deck ready for a party when you have it all done. Better yet, let use break your new barbeque in…..we'll bring the steaks!

Have you missed receiving your Weekly Tips and E- Newsletters? We are remodeling! The “On the House” website has been in need of some repairs for a while and that is now in progress and should be completed in the near future.

Feeder Fresh is an exciting new product that makes bird feeding easier, less expensive, and attracts more birds to your yard. And you know it is safe and effective, because it was created by the inventor who innovated Fresh Step litter for the last 20 years.

You probably love having a birdfeeder to bring nature into your backyard, and if you don’t have one you’re missing out on a great expereince... 40% of US homes do! But sometimes rain and humidity can cause problems in your feeder. Moisture spoils the seed and it quickly becomes a stuck-on mess that is a nightmare to clean, and throwing away valuable seed is a waste of money. Even more, studies show that small amounts of moisture can grow hidden toxic mold in birdseed that can harm the birds.

But there is a simple new bird-safe solution: If you want a clean dry bird feeder all the time, add Feeder Fresh moisture grabbing granules along with your seed. Bird-safe Feeder Fresh prevents mold and caking in wild bird feeders and eliminates the difficult task of feeder scrubbing. It attracts more birds by keeping the seed fresh and healthy, and appetizing. You…
• Save money on seed • Eliminate toxic mold and caking before they start
• Save time by avoiding scrubbing and cleaning
• Attract more birds with dry, fresh appetizing seed.

And, since Feeder Fresh is so efficient against moisture, Feeder Fresh will dry out anything, and keep anything dry. You can also use it to prevent mildew and mold in cabinets, closets, double pane windows, or protect items from rusting or corrosion.

Available at select Lowe’sstores, Wild Birds Unlimited stores, or your local garden center or pet store. If they don’t have it in stock, please ask the manager to order it. You can also order it online at Duncraft or

Here’s how Feeder Fresh works: These moisture absorbing granules contains billions of micro-sized pores that …

For more than 80 years, Masonite has been creating doors that not only provide superior security and stability, but fashion statements for the home.
