Someone's watching out for me. If that last lug nut had sheared off, my tire would have fallen off. And if I was going 65 miles an hour that would have been a bad scene. I thank the good Lord for his protection over me. I barely made it to the tire store. ...

And you are a wonder to speak to regarding these interesting critters. Even though I was out of your "home range" for working our situation, when I called a few years back, I had the most enlightening and useful chat! You gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to mitigate our New Hampshire home wall infestation of vespula germanica ...if I recall the name correctly. Even though their stingers were not present, the thought of a large interior breech was not comforting ---in my best Yoda voice---Good people, you are. Delighted to speak with you, I was.

I had a special treat yesterday. I got to see the work of a cicada killer. The big insect you see is the cicada killer and in its grasp is, of course, a cicada. Those are the insects you hear buzzing in summer. Cicada killers gather cicadas and then drag them down into their hole for their young to eat once they hatch. They nest in people's yards because of the sandy soil. If you have cicada killers you need to put nutrients into your soil and get a tough mat of grass so the cicada killer cannot Nest inside of it. But if you do have them, they are beautiful to behold. They are harmless and will not sting you or attack you. I wouldn't test that theory by grabbing one in your hands but I've never known anyone to be attacked and stung by one.

This is the inside of a white faced hornet nest. The white that you see in the pic is silk capping. The Nest itself is made out of paper pulp mixed with silk. Most people see the outside of a hornet nest but few get to see inside. It is truly magnificent to behold.
