Hi all. It seems forum posts this week have had a central theme concerning insects popping up in many guises. Ants, cockroaches, mosquitoes, fleas & even flea-markets etc.

It´s the time of the season, the Spanish flies & wasps. But, it´s Mosquitoes which kill more than any other animal: over 700,000 each year, 79 million years old; fossils identical to modern mosquitoes. 80% of the world's food crops are pollinated by insects whilst 10% of with world's food supply is consumed by insects. This week mentioned have been the problem “ant-bully”. Myrmecophobia is the fear of ants, with many suggestions on the forum. The best one was splashing down liquid detergent (so as thy can´t swim across the river Styx)

I remember film exotic sets for example a James Bond film, enjoying the Mediterranean coast, admiring an actress, enjoying a cocktail or two (shaken not stirred), & never saw movies, swatting flies & clouds of mossies! Perhaps the actors with music running in the sound-track had a secret method that we have not been known, may be applied Marmite or cheap cologne, Ethanol is the alcohol that is used for perfumery& creams. Isopropyl myristate and Monopropyleneglycol. Which some scientists, attribute more damage to the skin possibly more than sun-damage. These can of course, be bought easily enough, however for home-made perfumery it is common to use vodka & probably more safe than modern inventions. Talking of which, inventions. Who on this planet, decided to get rid of the drink tin tab-pull? (knowing that many people cut their finger) but in every country across the globe, now a tab, which enters into the drink-can carefully stored in all sorts of unhygienic thoughts? to immerse into the drink! Just a thought.

I´ll call it a day, but did learn some things, RayD (always comes up with a gem!) A “flea-market is a cockroach (I always thought in Spain it was a Rastro). Lecky needs a mention, Most people are shocked when they find out how bad an electrician could be, Bles her! & I learned this; the little hole in some sinks that lets the water drain out instead of flowing is called a 'porcelator' & arachibutyrophobia is fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth, may be an alternative against mosquitoes for Marmite.Have a good week-end.

 Good morning Villas.

I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted this morning by your  'Sun Review Day."

Your Review of the events of the previous week on the Forum has been missed and it is always a joy to read the latest offering penned in your own inimitable way .

I agree with you in that it most certainly has been the week of the Creepy Crawlies ~ and by that, I dont refer to the P.M'ers to Admin. 😃 ( sorry Admin  , I write only in Jest ).  🤭..

Thank you for sharing all those interesting, detailed insect facts , I've not yet had breakfast and think I may well now pass on it.🙄

Did the "M " in James bond land refer to Mozzys ? , if so let's hope it's not true they based the title on them "You Only Live Twice " 

If so i may soon be forced to  make a call to " The Man With The Golden Gun " , with the intentions of  " A View To A Kill "

In leaving  I will support your stance on the dangers of infections caused by those ring pulls and your calls to refer back to the detachable type.

I'll Drink to that ! 

LeckyLes.
