Big fat hairy bumblebees are the worst.

I agree with jOhn, where I come from we don't capture insects in boxes to release them again outside - we squash them. And fly-swatters are not meant for gently coaxing flies away - they are for swatting the bejeesus out of them. And those sticky papers etc are not there for decoration.

My son emigrated to Australia. The first time I visited he said "Dad, sorry, you can't sleep in the guest room". "Why?" I enquired; he replied "Last night we found there a white-tailed-something-or-other spider, for which there is no anti-venom. The trouble is, they go in pairs, and we only found the one...". I tell you, I nearly headed for the airport there and then.

And mozzies too. They annoy like hell during the night, give you itchy bites, perhaps something nasty along with that also. Do I get up in the night with a little plastic box to capture it and release it outside?

Like hell I do.

But I like to think myself as humane too. So I bought an electric insect zapper. It has an ultraviolet light to attract them towards a mesh with high voltage. Stick it outside, and you can have your beer or BBQ in the summer evenings without being molested by insects. The zapping sound can be offputting, I grant you that. But it's quick.

Wasps, bees, spiders... Hah!!! Forget 'em! Ladybugs! Now there's something to be afraid of!!! Sure, they don't bite and they're cute and they eat aphids and all that goody stuff, but that's the trouble. Nobody ever kills ladybugs so they just keep multiplying and multiplying and before you know it there are so many of them that they outweigh the rest of the entire planet and that causes the Earth to shift in its orbit and go crashing into the Sun which causes the Sun to explode into a giant Nova destroying the rest of the planets in the Solar System and leaving our part of the Universe uninhabitable to every race except Vogons for millions of years.

Ladybugs! Yechhhh!!!

I dedicate this song to the late bee, so cruelly robbed of his little life, and to jOhn, who I'm sure, loved the bee carnally.

Eric the Half a Bee, by Eric Idle and John Cleese.

Half a bee, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?

La dee dee, one two three,
Eric the half a bee.
A B C D E F G,
Eric the half a bee.

Is this wretched demi-bee,
Half-asleep upon my knee,
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It's Eric the half a bee!

Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
Eric the half a bee.
Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
Eric the half a bee.

I love this hive, employee-ee,
Bisected accidentally,
One summer afternoon by me,
I love him carnally.

He loves him carnally,
Semi-carnally.

And in the immortal words of the great John Shuttleworth:

Go down on your knee to the honey bee
For she is very nice,
Before you hit her with a rolled up Mirror,
Think twice,
How will that bee's mother feel
When she finds out her child is a ghost,
Kill the bee,
And ultimately,
You'll have nothing to spread on your toast.

Think on jOhn.

Bears (not beers) are dangerous. One showed up in my neighborhood on Monday - a residential area. The police had a tranquilizer gun but no one knew how to use it (scary, no?) so they killed it.

Bumble bees are just cute little fur balls. When I was very small, I used to pick them off the flowers with my wee fingers and never got stung once. The trick is convincing them you mean them no harm.

Flies.......flies are another matter. I have an electric fly swatter shaped like a tennis racquet. Sometimes if you hit 'em just right, you can make them explode with a loud crack of white sparks........very exhilarating!

Come to think of it, I think I'm a far more dangerous animal than a bee, I kill for the shear sport of it.

Maybe you could disuade a bear with an electric fly swatter, if you tapped it on his wet nose. I should try it out on the dogs first to see if it works.

Bears are not that easily dissuaded, but I know one guy who dissuaded one by dropping a lit cigar into its open jaws. He was at the top of the smallish tree, and the bear was halfway up it at the time. It worked. The bear departed in a hurry.

Put a teaspoon of vanilla in a pint of water and spray yourself with it and bugs (mosquitoes, for sure, but perhaps bees also) are repelled. You can spritz it around the porch or patio every so often when you're sitting out. Then you don't need to disturb yourself to grope around for the flyswatter.

Try it out on the dogs! Metchosin, what has gotten into you? Live dangerously, don't test it on the dogs, just tray it on a bear, but be sure you test your electric flyswatter on a black bear, not a griz.

The first time I was stung by a wasp, I was sick (puked, for our Transponders). The second time I was stung by a wasp, I was sick and fainted, was ill for 3 days and still have the scar. I don't want there to be a third time so it's death to all wasps for me. Especially in March and April when it's going to be a queen looking for a nest site. 500 wasps with one splat!

Whilst it's not nice to kill bees, being as they pollinate stuff for us and make honey, sometimes, it's the only option.

Those UV killer traps are great - a good zap and a wasp can go down with flaming wings like something out of 633 Squadron!

Fat, hairy bumblebees are totally passive unless, of course. you step on one.

SRS - My mom used to put vanilla behind my ears. It made me smell like cookies. The boys loved it.

Mosquitos? Those citronella candles work pretty good but I still hate the noise in my ear. I'm thinking of making a bat house to keep the population down.

Bears - Very scary. Don't believe it when they say, just make a loud noise and they'll run away! I ended up sharing a berry patch with a bear and I had to jump over a cliff to escape. I was sun bathing and wasn't wearing any clothes. The cliff was covered in black berry brambles. Needless to say, the fishermen who rescued me, could hardly believe their eyes. Scratched, bloody and naked, I had to jump to the bow of their boat. Luckily they gave me a jacket and some beer.

The scariest of all animals is the camel. I ran into one in the Sahara and he looked friendly but he spit at me and tried to kick me. Nasty animals, them camels.

I also hate those creepy vultures. They are so ugly with that red waddle hanging about. Same goes for turkeys.

Sturgeon is by far the ugliest creature on earth. I should be kinder because I hear they are on the endangered list. Too bad, because their eggs are yummy and the meat is delicious, smoked.

Stingrays - Now they are really dangerous!

Don't forget various jellyfish, sea snakes, scorpions, assorted spiders, and suchlike critters.

Mountain lions will bring you down if you run, or bicycle. They think you're prey. To my mind this is not always A Bad Thing. Then again, I kinda like Felix Concolor.

MOST black bears will leave. MOST grizzlies will leave. MOST who don't leave will only feint. There is that 1% in both species who didn't get The Word, however. Jumping naked over a cliff into blackberries or a lake is embarassing, but an excellent solution if you've met one of the Uninformed.

what about kittens? I received a scratch from one in 1954 when I was holding it too tightly. I have thought of starting a spinoff religion of kitten handlers. Much like snake handlers, except if you do not have enough faith, you would receive a scratch from the kitten you select from the box, rather than a bite from a rattlesnake. Kind of like snakehandlers with trainer wheels. Anyone interested? will need a building, a box of kittens (easily procured) and a few old church pews or folding chairs, plus, and this is important, collection plates.

No so, however, the red wasp...always angry! Always aggressive!! Definitely not to be talked out of attacking with soothing assurances that you don't want to hurt them. Preemtive strike!

Beware the Brown-tail moth caterpillar. A wretched creature with little toxic hairs that cause a nasty, itchy rash and potential breathing problems. Can't even just avoid touching them, either, because as they grow, they shed their skins and the little hairs become airborne, wafting gently in the seabreeze and landing on all and sundry. At the park I work at, we even have to put the toilet paper in plastic containers. AND there's nothing that eats them, because they're an introduced species!!! Pardon me, I now have to go scratch vigorously...

When it comes to Hull I think almost anything that moves is in danger of being humped. It's best to drive through with the windows up and the doors locked and not make eye contact.

Besides, poemtry is about feelings, not what specific animal captures your dreams. You got a Dylan book there in the Orillia library, I can't remember the title. The second chapter get into Dylan's "How does it feel?" Then, for the rest of the book the author keeps going back to, How does it feel? How does it feel? How does it feel?

He thought it was the essence of Dylaning - feelings, not fact, not truth, not precise descriptions of animals, just feelings.

It did, but the original one will not. Unbelievable.

Fine. I'll retype it.

Sounds like a plausible approach to me. If the feeling isn't there not a hell of a lot usually happens, in my experience.

I agree. "How does it feel?" is really the vital question...

The air is getting hotter
There's a rumbling in the skies
I've been wading through the high muddy water
With the heat rising in my eyes
Every day your memory grows dimmer
It doesn't haunt me like it did before
I've been walking through the middle of nowhere
Trying to get to heaven before they close the door

When I was in Missouri
They would not let me be
I had to leave there in a hurry
I only saw what they let me see
You broke a heart that loved you
Now you can seal up the book and not write anymore
I've been walking that lonesome valley
Trying to get to heaven before they close the door

People on the platforms
Waiting for the trains
I can hear their hearts a-beatin'
Like pendulums swinging on chains
When you think that you lost everything
You find out you can always lose a little more
I'm just going down the road feeling bad
Trying to get to heaven before they close the door

I'm going down the river
Down to New Orleans
They tell me everything is gonna be all right
But I don't know what "all right" even means
I was riding in a buggy with Miss Mary-Jane
Miss Mary-Jane got a house in Baltimore
I been all around the world, boys
Now I'm trying to get to heaven before they close the door

Gonna sleep down in the parlor
And relive my dreams
I'll close my eyes and I wonder
If everything is as hollow as it seems
Some trains don't pull no gamblers
No midnight ramblers, like they did before
I been to Sugar Town, I shook the sugar down
Now I'm trying to get to heaven before they close the door

On Hull threads, you have to wait until the goat gives you permission to post.

What is this long thing that you are dangling into cyberspace? Are you responding to my three-liner or did you catch Dylan on a bad day?

The caption said the shot was a little short and the cat sunk the shot with one paw.

surely she wouldn't whack a pussy with her stick!
Context is everything, isn't it?
