Jan 26 2014 SnB Meetup

We are meeting in the Michael Donald Glass Community Room.

Interesting: The Malaysian government decided to solve their disease-carrying mosquito problem by spraying the infested areas with DDT.? This worked, but the cockroaches then devoured the dead mosquitoes. This was followed by the region's gecko lizards consuming the roaches. The geckos did not die from the residual poison (surprisingly), but their central nervous systems were greatly affected, causing the lizards to slow down. Moving up the food chain, the cats ate the slow-moving lizards and started to die off in large quantities. Of course, fewer cats means more rats, and the country's rat population soared. As a result, the World Health Organization was forced to step in and ban the DDT. In an effort to restore the ecological balance, they flew in planeloads of cats to kill the rats.

I hope you are writing 2014 on dates by now, as I hope I am doing.

Come and share your new and in process progects with us.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
