We were quite interested in the news articles about the hordes of cicadas emerging in parts of the US this week. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/headline/nation/4820806.html

These are on a 17 year cycle, others on 13 year cycles; both prime numbers so as to defeat their predators who can only divide by 3 and 5. O.K. so I've lost you; just read the original article.

See, our life is not perfect.
