    Time sure does fly! it's been 17 years since those nasty things have been out? Read the article on Yahoo that this is the year they are coming out - great! have something to look forward to. They have got to be just as nasty as a cockroach! guess that's the pleasures of living on the East Coast! Pretty sad though that pediatricians are warning a danger to children though!

    I thought it was just the East Coast that those things hatch? have they ever been in Texas before?

    very true Sandy! The skeeters there are big enough to saddle and ride! Cicadas are noisier and more annoying

    Gee, I don't mind the things. They are a nuisance but that's about it, I think. I tho't they destroyed certain crops, though. When I was a little girl, when my dad would find one, he'd pick it up & let me hold it to show me they were nothing to be afraid of. I use to hang the skins they shed off my shirt. Good ol' dad.
