When you turn your boiler on -Does it return the favor?
I have finally lost my mind. Don't bother to return it. It wasn't working properly anyway!

I always thought that there had to be a hard frost before it could be called an Indian Summer. We always have the wooly ones but haven`t noticed any new type as of yet.

Folklore of the eastern United States and Canada holds that the relative amounts of brown and black on the skin of a woolly bear caterpillar (commonly abundant in the fall) are an indication of the severity of the coming winter. It is believed that if a woolly bear caterpillar's brown stripe is thick, the winter weather will be mild and if the brown stripes are narrow, the winter will be severe.

I've seen a few of them here that are almost all black.

:rofl: Nice one John! 8-)

I think (Forgot already!! :D ) I have 6.5 tons downstairs now .... at least I'm sure of 4.8 tons anyway ... :lol:

We have a billion of those white caterpillars in pic #3 there all over the place, but no wooly bears at all this year. Never seen the yellow ones in these parts. But man, those white ones are taking over - no joke! There were no less than 10 of them all over me, my tools, the boat & the driveway last night working on my buddy's boat trailer. Never seen so many. Never saw one as a kid - there weren't any.

I recall the gypsy moth caterpillars of '80 -'81 though ... as I'm sure most MA residents do. They stripped every single leaf off every single tree in the state! It was like winter in July!! Not a leaf to be found. My ol' man had a white '76 Torino back then ... and I remember the doors & rear quarters being totally brown from the billions of caterpillars run over in the street! Caterpillar guts! Was worse than the winter sand/salt. I also remember the white concrete foundation of the house being totally black with billions of them too. Was a total invasion. Haven't seen anything like it since.

Wooaaah WAAAY off topic here! :whistle:
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

- Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On
Crimes and Punishment."
