    I try, or least I am still trying [according to herself]

    interesting [?] fact:

    beatrice is derived from latin and can be translated as bringer of joy
    xara is derived from [ancient] greek and can be translated as joy

    -------------------------------

    Thanks all for comments. Much appreciated.

    Here's another bug (common green shieldbug). It just dropped out the air landing on my phone screen for a few moments. It's right antenna was quite bent, but it didn't seemed bothered (as far as I could tell!). Anyway after a few quick calls and browse on the internet it went on it's way.

    Behzad, I think this one is known a ‘stinkbug’ in your part of the world. It has special glands that can release a pungent defensive smell if handled roughly. I’m fairly sure your cucumbers will be ok from this one.

    I have not squished one yet. I pray this year they do not come back. Right now I am chasing rabbits and squirrels. I have no peace
