Horacewimp: It wasn’t big news over here probably because we weren’t in it’s line of re-entry, it seems it broke up over the Indian Ocean. May 9, 2021 7:29:36 GMT
eloneen: Yes, I read that late last night, saw it confirmed this morning. Made me think of Skylab... May 9, 2021 15:21:37 GMT *
orioles70: the cicada brood has emerged in Baltimore, drying themselves in the sun and getting ready to start making bug music May 21, 2021 18:36:44 GMT

eloneen: Anybody want a crunchy snack? Try some cicadas: www.cnn.com/videos/foodanddrink/2021/05/22/chocolate-cicada-brood-x-maryland-candy-company-nr-vpx.cnn May 23, 2021 0:03:59 GMT
orioles70: a chocolate lab will eat a cicada, but covering a cicada in chocolate just makes it not fit for man nor beast :( May 23, 2021 16:17:22 GMT *
eloneen: A great opportunity for our friends abroad (who can afford the trip) to get vaccinated! www.cnn.com/2021/05/26/americas/vaccine-tourism-usa-latam-intl/index.html May 27, 2021 0:26:33 GMT

lasttrain929: Strange,17 years!!! Are they really that noisy.... May 29, 2021 21:50:38 GMT

lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me..... May 30, 2021 9:17:00 GMT
Timeblue: After weeks of horrible weather, Mr Blue is living here today! May 30, 2021 13:00:47 GMT
eloneen: I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809:: May 30, 2021 17:28:57 GMT *
orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard. Jun 7, 2021 13:56:44 GMT
orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well. Jun 12, 2021 20:28:39 GMT
BSJ: :D Jun 12, 2021 23:52:51 GMT
BSJ: and how is the cicadas noise level now? Jun 12, 2021 23:53:25 GMT
orioles70: the cicadas are past their peak, dying off in droves - I hear the thing to do is to sweep them into the gardens where they make good fertilizer Jun 15, 2021 11:43:37 GMT
