    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...

    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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Cindy...that is really GROSS! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    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.
