We get ladybugs occasionally but not as much as I would like. I love that they eat aphids.
We do get a small bug that Chuck and I call "Bob". It's a box elder bug that frequently finds its way onto our desks and casually walks across the computer screen. You can flick him off and in just a few minutes he's back walking across the screen. They usually show up one at a time so that's why he's "Bob". Quite harmless but one time we had an enormous infestation of Bobs outside on our porch. Don't know what was up with that. A few of them did make it into the house so we just called them Bob's cousins!
Bugs are cool...most of the time...except for spiders...I'm not too fond of spiders though I leave the orb builders alone in my garden 'cuz they work for me catching unwanted bugs. And their webs are so awesome.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
