Now this is just plain ridiculous. Outside weeding and I'm swarmed with skeeters.

This year's crop is really tiny mossies, unlike years before.

Yes it does! I have so much to do outside, but with all the bugs, I'm the one who gets sucked!

The squitters in MA are tiny. And stealth-like. And come out way earlier than OH ones ever did. I miss those big, ol' mosquitoes like we had back home. They were big enough you could usually hear them coming. You had a good chance to get one before she got you. Not real bright, either. Himself watched one try to drill through the glass on his watch case before he put the poor thing out of its misery.

Worst I've ever seen was on our way to a whale shark tour in Mexico. After getting off a small plane in Holbox, we were covered in teeny tiny skeets. I found a small bottle of DEET in my bag that I had forgotten I had put there! I was very popular, even the pilot needed it!

I hear, they do not like people who regularly eat garlic. Maybe I should change my diet and eat more garlic than sweets. I am a big time mosquito magnet.

You Know What's Disturbing?

At the time I was told about what one of our local schools was doing forcing students, making it a mandatory thing that the kids make a public account not sure if it's fake book, tweeter or what. So that they can monitor what the kids post.The person who told me that said if they didn't do it the kids wouldn't pass the class.I thought, noooo way.Can't be true.Sure enough it is.
Now it's starting in other areas.

What ever happened to privacy? Parental rights to watch over our own without the school district stepping in and taking the control from us?
I remember being told in a hoity way to step back.Don't ask questions about my sons progress.Don't dare ask to volunteer.

Who's paying for the cell phones. Parents our the tax payers?
What if the family moves.The kids graduate.Does the monitoring continue?

I'm so glad we yanked one of ours out of the public school system here.
Knowing mine they would make fake profiles just to jerk the system around using disposable phones.LOL!

No wait, we would do it for them!

Pirate is one of those folks who would have the most pleasure jerking them around. Example: He was about 18 and the police were chasing him and one of his friends. All of a sudden Pirate stopped running and the cop almost knocked him down. When the cop asked him why was he running, Pirate said, "It is part of the game. You know your department insists you keep in shape. So I am contributing to your good health. I run, you chase. That is how the game is played." The cop told him "get out here!"

He's lucky. People who run from police are more likely to be shot.

Munky, it's because kids are using social media to harass and bully unpopular classmates and these days, schools are being held responsible for dealing with that. If parents handled it, rather than denying their perfect little angel would *ever* do that, the schools wouldn't have to.
