For the next 7 days, I am going to torture you with photos I’ve taken of bugs and insects.  Yes, most people hate bugs (including me), but we should learn to get over our fears, and exposure is one way to do that.  Bugs aren’t as cute as squirrels or chickens, but if we don’t fear squirrels or chickens, then why must we fear bugs?  After all, they’re a lot smaller and easier to kill. 🙂

Bug Week is brought to you by Borax, which I have placed around my apartment and it appears to be keeping the bugs away.  Thanks, Kat!

      The hue became more accessible to lower classes about a century and a half ago. In 1856, 18-year-old English chemist William Henry Perkin accidentally created a synthetic purple compound while attempting to synthesize quinine, an anti-malaria drug . He noticed that the compound could be used to dye fabrics, so he patented the dye and manufactured it under the name aniline purple and Tyrian purple, making a fortune in the process…”
