    I hear tell its described as 'Like drinking the finest, most expensive bottle of wine, in the foulest, most disgusting public lavatory'.
    Not too unlike Farmer Palmer's finest rough cider, then.

    Surely the Vibra-gun would be better? We'd get to watch him do that funny dance before he fell to bits.

        I would have to agree with that statement, but I hope that you dont have the same regards for moths as you do for butterflies.
        I went out on my porch Sat. night at around 12:30 and could hear a sound comparable to hail falling.My house is dropped in the middle of 100 year old pines,birch,walnuts,elm,maples,spruce,cedars,sumac ,chestnuts,butternuts,balsams.. etc.This crunching sound seemed to be coming from miles around.It took me about 5 minutes to figure out what it was.Its frigging Gypsy Moth larvae, and they are devouring every leave on every tree in my neighborhood.It was kind of creepy when I realized that the crunching sound was being made by caterpillars in a feeding frenzy.Those cute little fuzzy critters are killing everything!I havent seen such an infestation in 40 years.I love butterflies also but could live without those bastard Gypsy Moth caterpillars killing my already weakened White Birch.

          Well, I also love birds, lizards (we've got the cutest little anoles here!) and FROGS!! The green tree frogs cling to the house at night in the summertime, eating moths and such till they're fit to burst... the lovely toads are out now, too.
          There is a moth that fascinates me
          the Luna Moth.
          Don't see them as often as I'd like.
          Last year we had to cut down an 80+ ft. pine tree next to our place because the pine beetle got to it. Made us really nervous during Hurricane Frances so we had to do it. Figured by the rings it was 90ish years old.
          Okay, I think it's time to turn in the Greyhound and have a Grasshopper.

                        Forgive me for changing the subject, but can anyone tell me how this poor guy was 'defending American freedom' ? The logic completely defeats me.

                        Staff Sgt. Raymond J. Plouhar, 30, died Monday of wounds suffered while conducting combat operations in Iraq's volatile Anbar province, the Defense Department said Tuesday.
                        Plouhar, who was stationed at Camp Pendleton, Calif., had taken four years off from active duty to serve as a recruiter in Flint after donating one of his kidneys to his uncle. He is seen in the 2004 film approaching prospective recruits in a mall parking lot.
                        Most E-Mailed Stories
                        "It's better to get them when they're in ones and twos and work on them that way," he says in the film.
                        Although Plouhar willingly appeared in the movie, which is critical of the Bush administration's actions after Sept. 11, his father said Plouhar didn't realize it would criticize the war.
                        "I'm proud that my son wanted to protect the freedom of this country whether we all agree with the war or not," he said.
                        Plouhar grew up in Lake Orion, about 30 miles north of Detroit.
                        He is survived by a wife and two children, ages 5 and 9. They live in Arizona.

                          I think it is a truly patriotic message saying: Bah, you turr'ist jerks, one freedom defending kidney lives on!

                            Car les bandits qui sont cause des guerres
                            N’en meurent jamais, on n’tue qu’les innocents !

                            Car les bandits qui sont cause des guerres
                            Ne pleurent jamais, car ce sont des tyrans !

                            As bandits who are the reason for wars never die from them as only innocents are killed !

                            As bandits who are the reason for wars never cry as they are tyrans !

                            from : " La Butte rouge " a french anti militarist song ( 1871 ? ) .

                            If i could i would translate for you : giroflé, girofla .....

                            But i think that if wars are made for power, glory or money by warmongers, soldiers die for ideals...... even misguidded ........

                            as another french poet said : to die for ideas, yes but from a slow death ....

                                I just think the word "Freedom" has been battered senseless.

                                Do you want 'freedom fries' with that?
