As a superstitious New Yorker I was taught at an early age, to not kill spiders. Killing a spider inevitably brings bad luck. And, who needs that these days? I see a spider I try to get it to move along. Don’t get me wrong I’m not looking to have a pet spider. I do not run in fear from them, but I’m cautious. With that said, here’s an odd bit for the week. Researcher Daniela Roessler has supposedly found that spiders can suffer from arachnophobia. There’s a life lesson to be gleamed from that, I’m sure.
In further news, seemingly ripped out of a Hitchcock movie, a town in North Carolina is under siege by buzzards. The townspeople have tried to scare them off in every way they can think of but the buzzards are hunkering down. Seems they may be holding an annual convention.
Keeping it short today, I leave you with this odd tidbit. A woman from Rudsia- a very wealthy woman- has supposedly had 21 babies this past year via surrogates. Her goal is apparently to have 100 children.
For me, I’m happy with my one.
Oh boy, this world keeps getting weirder. Enjoy!
