Whitehurst Diaries: Better Beetle Buster protects blackberry crop

Cute as these leaf-eating scarabs are, Phyllaga are at least a minor plague at blackberry time. Though Andrew Zimmern feasts on roasted June Bugs (See Youtube: June Bugs Three Ways) occasionally, there's no place for them in the blackberry patch; and with no great demand by today's nine year old boys to tether June Bugs with sewing thread and make a flying toy of them, the Whitehursts take great glee and sweet endings for the creatures, who are now hastened to Junebug heaven with Jim Whitehurst latest contraption, the wildly successful Better Beetle Buster, which Sharon Whitehurst shares with the world in today's Internet Reveal - CM

USMC training fantastic opportunity for young men

Jon Halsey writes:
Fantastic opportunity for these young men and congratulations for gamely taking part.

As proud as I am of these young athletes, I still experienced some painful memories of hot, hot summer months of 1960 at Camp Bullis arguing which was worse: lying on your back among sand fleas or among sand burrs.

There was a general proscription against holding maneuvers when "Maggie's drawers" were flying. This, in reference to Red Flags displayed all over the Camp to indicate that the Heat Index had topped 100. We always marveled at how many Platoon Leaders were color blind and couldn't seem to make out the color red.

I wouldn't trade the experience for all the tea in China, but I sure would be proud to lose the memories. - Jon Halsey
