    The one thing I'll never forget about cicadas is the time when hundreds of them gathered on the same tree and PEE-D! It was such a rare sight that the newscasters rushed down and the local news ran clips of them "raining". Some members of the public actually stood under the tree with the umbrella for a closer look!

    I wonder if any other Singaporean remembers that...was at least 5 years ago, I think...

    So, tech, check out cicadamania.org...

    BTW, has anyone seen any sign of any of these?

    Yeah yeah yeah. Ok. Let's get back to the "there" subject....MUCH more interesting than bugs.

    Personally...I have never had a bug..."there." When I was a little kid, I did have a pretty severe bike accident..."there." Owoowwowoowwwoooow!

    I have seen the cyclic cicada swarms (supposedly 17 yr)...in the Spotsylvania Battlefields near Fredericksburg. It was a sight to behold. Noise was deafening! Cicadas everywhere. Rather gross as they are BIG bugs. And don't ever get them in your house...again, deafening. Cat's like 'em though.

    Cindy...that is really GROSS!

    Cicadas always remind of me of sweaty, hot, baked-dry, wheat-colored August.

    Cindy,

    Ahhh, nevermind. Trying to say it wiith the kill filter wouldn't work anyways. Suffice to say Singapore is a land of wonder!

    Personally, I think Ozzys story is even more eerie. One wonders why one was stealing chiggers. I bet that was a case of Live and Learn, hoooo mamma!

    Once again, you beat me out Ozzy. I would rather wear Poision Ivy underwear than guest a chigger in my halls. Something like that.

    Sorry for the off topic.

    Tamlin, I would have smuggled them out on my feet and legs but there was no room for them there because I was also poaching sand spurs, they were dug into the flesh from my knee caps to the bottom of my feet.
    This was my first trip into the Green Swamp, I learned a very valuable lesson. Never were sandles and shorts in the Green Swamp.
