We need a little levity here. I assume the following to be true. With tongue firmly planted in cheek:

I read a report on the 'net that a plague of caterpillars was centered around the town of Yandaran in Queensland, Australia. A plague much like the locusts here in the states many moons ago. At last report, they were migrating southeast towards Ozblokes hometown. My fertile mind envisions poor Jim being held hostage by a gazillion of the fuzzy critters!

Have no fear, friend Jim! Be of stout heart! If push comes to shove I'm certain that the members of DCT will marshall an effort to airlift plenty of groceries and Jack Daniels thus you might weather the, er, "storm"!

The stuff of which third-rate horror movies are made.

Hey Richard - It's funny you should mention caterpillars. I was feeling a bit lonely the other day and thought a pet might be the answer so off I toddled to the local pet shop. I wanted something different, unusual, unique...and lo and behold there, for sale, was a centipede, complete with a little white matchbox called 'Home'. I took the centipede home in his little white box and sat him beside me on the coffee table. Some hours later I was feeling a tad dry and decided a coupla cold ones at the local were in order so I tapped lightly on the box and said..."Hey, mate do you wanna come to the pub for a beer?" There was no reply, nothing...so I tapped a little harder and said a little louder..."Hey, do you wanna come to the pub for a beer?" Still nothing...so I got a little mad and shouted into the box..."Hey you, do ya wanna come down the pub for a beer?" That's when I heard it...this tiny little voice saying......"Okay, okay..I heard you the first time, I'm still putting on my *#$%^# shoes!"

cheers my friend,
