Grubs Enter the Gut-Brain Connection, While Almost Homemade Sunscreen Raises Alarms About Food Scrounge News

Thanks for your comments on our wild-domestic menagerie on the Creek. Today I did battle with roaches, sometimes euphemistically called “water bugs”. Hey, a roach is a roach. Did I tell you I once woke up with one on my face (this was in LA)? They are a fact of life in warm, humid locales. Roach photos are too gory for a G-rated site, so click on the Food Scrounge News tab for the latest information instead.
