What do you mean useless? There are lots of recipes that include cicadas: https://www.google.ca/search?q=cicad...ient=firefox-a

I remember one spring, a bunch of pollen fell on my face. I went to wipe it off and within an hour I had blisters on my face.

I feel your pain, bakechef.

One of the best things I ever did was go through the series of allergy shots for years. Now spring is not a problem.

Now SO just started a new treatment option for immunotherapy, drops under your tongue. It's a multi-year proposition but at least you don't have to go the the Dr.'s office every week, to weeks, etc.

Grrr, annoying commercials. Trying to watch the news and it seems like I have to reach for the remote every commercial break because of the noise factor or stupidity of at least half of them. I'll gladly watch and watch again if it's a cute or creative ad, but those are few and far between.

On a similar note, why do shows have to drive the background music up so loud during the critical parts? You can't catch the dialog no matter how loudly you blast it. Grrr....

Finally, good luck to all of you battling pollen allergies. When we lived in OH all I was allergic to was grass pollen. Since we moved to MA I've developed so many allergies I guess I'm just allergic to MA!

Meanwhile, I would pack up and move back to OH in a heartbeat. Kids still live there. 'nuff said...
