    Page bender, I'm sure it's frustrating at times. Does he live with you? Why don't you buy him a set of cups just for him and leave them near the sink. :)

    What America’s immigrants looked like when they arrived on Ellis Island

    ".. The fascinating photographs below -- of people in their native costume passing through Ellis Island in the early 20th Century -- hint at just how incredible and unique America's history is as a nation of immigrants...

    These photos were taken by Augustus Sherman, an amateur photographer who worked as the chief registry clerk on Ellis Island from 1892 until 1925..."

    Ireland places the wee cottage from John Wayne film ‘The Quiet Man’ under state protection

    "The stone walls were giving way and the greenery was taking over. But what’s left of a famous little home have been saved from the elements - and nostalgic visitors who walked off with a stone or two for a souvenir.

    “The dilapidated cottage which was featured in ‘The Quiet Man’ was officially placed under state protection yesterday. Members of Galway County Council unanimously agreed to add White O’Morn cottage, in Maam in Connemara, to its list of protected structures,” says Irish Central correspondent Nick Bramhill.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jul/21/ireland-places-famous-wee-cottage-john-waynes-quie/

    Fans rejoice as "Quiet Man" cottage now officially protected by the Irish state

    "...The campaign to safeguard the future of the property and restore it to its former glory had been backed by A-list celebrities including Liam Neeson, Michael Flatley, and Maureen O’Hara herself..."

    A minor inconvenience: :(

    October is Ladybug season, just as September is fly/spider season. The insects are looking for shelter from the coming Winter and are/have driving/driven me crazy this Fall. The ladybugs are everywhere! The Queen and I bring them in the house as they cling to us, they are on the siding, porch rails.....everywhere! They fly into my face and body when I'm out, [​IMG]

    and try to sneak inside whenever they have an opportunity. When I find one inside, I grab a tissue - I can hear the crunch; I flush them down the toilet. [​IMG]

    There are some little flying something-or-other bugs that are hanging around also. The indoor zapper is working overtime. I hear the ZAP- there goes another one. Only thing good about Winter is that there are no bugs around. [​IMG]

    I hate bugs [​IMG]

    - stay outside (where you belong) and live another day.

    I feel bad for them- for any insect that I kill. I don't want them in my house tho'.

    I am a killer. For shame. :shame:

    Rant over [​IMG]
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Not nothing
    The death of a fly is utterly insignificant – or it’s a catastrophe. How much should we worry about what we squash?

    "...We too are built on a bedrock of old men’s bones. Our evolution to Homo sapiens is a product of the endless winnowing out of the unfit and the unfortunate. If some australopithecine apeman or woman had stumbled across the elixir of life, it is very unlikely that you or I would exist. It is worth bowing our heads for a moment to all our ancestors whose passing away made our lives possible.

    But here we are – and many people would like it to stay that way. That tadpoles are fodder for pond-life is as natural as the leaves falling on the water in autumn; that flies get squidged is as ordinary as apples rotting in the orchard. One’s own death, on the other hand, seems most unnatural. It seems rather an error and an outrage; a cosmic crime; a reason to raise one’s fist and rebel against the regime that ordered this slaughter of innocents....

    As the poet William Blake realised when he, too, carelessly squashed an insect:

    Am not I
    A fly like thee?
    Or art not thou
    A man like me?..."

    Why Ladybugs Swarm On Your House

    "...It happens every fall in the eastern U.S. and Canada. In southern New England where I’m from, it occurs on warm, sunny days in October and even into early November.
    It’s a phenomenon that causes a great deal of exasperation. And they don't even have a name for it!

    All of a sudden, on a warm, sunny day, out of nowhere, swarms of lady beetles converge to hibernate. And they converge right onto the sunny exterior of your house, garage or shed.

    Not content to just sit there soakin' up the rays and workin' on their tan, they enter the house in droves. The kids don't have to stand there holding the door open, either.

    They simply find loose-fitting screens, cracks and vents, and soon enough, they're house guests.

    They do this because they like to find a sheltered place in which to hibernate for the winter. While they are pests, they're not harmful to humans or pets, and they don't reproduce during hibernation..."

    I was having trouble with this thread yesterday and this morning. I think things are okay now?

    I don't know how I missed this case, but have been reading up on it. Very weird!

    The Strange Case of Anna Stubblefield

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/25/magazine/the-strange-case-of-anna-stubblefield.html?_r=1

    Here is the basic info:

    Jury finds female professor GUILTY of raping mute, cerebral palsy-stricken, diaper-wearing man after she claimed the two were 'in love'

    • Dr Anna Stubblefield, 45, found guilty on two counts of felony first-degree aggravated sexual assault for raping a mentally disabled man

    • The Rutgers philosophy professor faces up to 40 years in prison when she is sentenced

    • Stubblefield claimed the 34-year-old victim known as D.J. could express himself through 'facilitated communication'

    • Her defense lawyer asked that Stubblefield be released on bail because she was not a flight risk but the request was denied

    • After hearing the verdict, Stubblefield was led out in handcuffs to be held until sentencing

    • In closing arguments Thursday, her attorney insisted no sexual assault had taken place because the pair were in a consensual sexual relationship

    • Attorney James Patton argued the diaper-wearing man had the capacity to consent to sex with Stubblefield

    • Prosecution claimed Stubblefield preyed on D.J. for her own 'sexual gratification' and to further her own career

    • 'She put a person with cerebral palsy on an exercise mat on a dirty carpet. That's love?' prosecutor Eric Plant asked
