Just spent a week in British Columbia - beautiful scenery, lots to see and do, great food - only thing spoiling it was the mosquitoes. In Europe they attack Mrs9000 and leave me alone. In B.C. the bloodsucking little bastards have been eating me alive. Far more enthusiastic than their European cousins.
(Mozzies have now joined wasps and slugs in the 'what use are they?' list.
Also, Google 'banana slug' if you want to see what the slugs look like over there.
It might look like I'm listening to you, but in my head I'm playing my guitar.
