    Every 17 years it happens...or so they say. I can't remember 17 years back (Alzheimers ?) so I don't what it will be like. Just keep your mouth closed when mowing or riding your Harley.

    I've heard that also. They are incredibly noisy little buggers!

    AWESOME fishing bait ..... using good 4 or 6 # fishing line .... use the bug like a live lure , ... tie a bare hook on the fishing line only... run the hook down his thorax and out his butt ... using only the bug as weight you should be able to get a decent cast if you have a good reel ... let that little sucker flap his wings floating on top of water ..... This will bring the catfish to the top and make bass go crazy.

    I can remember catching so many fish my thumb had turned blood raw. Lovin it....
