I was just reading more about them. Apparently Cecil and Harford counties in Maryland have them too. I guess not as far west as where we are; we border Harford County and I haven't seen them. They're so distinctive that I would remember seeing them.Can't say that I have. Ewwwww. My county isn't on that list, but by the looks of the map won't be far from being on it. And dh and I were commenting on how few pesky bugs we saw this year like stinkbugs. We had plenty of moths, butterflies, and bees, but not much else. Even our beetle traps didn't need changing this summer.
Yes, it's a buffet. It's got 10 different "Restaurants" in one. So there's an Asian place that has wok and then different ready made options, but it covers Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Sri Lankan, Thai, etc. Then there's an Italian part that mostly does vegetarian food. Then there's seafood place...I didn't even go in there, because I don't like fish, a salad bar, a soup bar, a Tex-Mex place that does steaks and burgers and such, and then the've added tacos, a Pancake and waffle house, a dessert bar, and a fastfood place with burgers and hotdogs. I must be forgetting one. Anyway one of the rules was to use the hand sanitizer before getting food each time.That sounds strange. Was this a buffet? I'm surprised a buffet would still let you serve your own food. None of the buffets around us have opened yet, which is fine.
Thanks for sharing. You made the right call to get yourself checked out. Take care.I hesitated in mentioning this because, well, when compared to the health concerns of others here my problems are pretty minor. I'm mentioning it because I haven't had time to read all the posts so I might be covering things already covered. Sorry about that! Anyway, I spent all of the past week in the hospital having tests run and ultimately having a pacemaker implanted. I am home now and doing well, actually much better then I was doing before I decided to have that weird feeling in my chest investigated.
It turned out that I had developed an irregular heartbeat sometime around the time I moved in March. Didn't know what it was I was feeling but then the last couple of months it had been far more intense so I finally got it through my thick head to do something about it. I wasn't having chest pains or feeling anything other then a hollow feeling in my chest and, when most intense, was making me weak and shaky to the point of sometimes getting winded just walking across the room. In the hospital it was discovered that my pulse was fluctuating between 70 bpm and dropping to 40 bpm and then back, at random. 40 is good for an athlete, but not for someone as old and out of shape as I am. Anyway, I missed an entire week of posts and very well might have missed something important, but I am now ready to move on with a machine, sown in my chest, that is now regulating the speed my engine runs. On the plus side I did test negative for Covid 19, so I got that going for me. The downside is this is going to dig deeply in my golfing time for the next 6 weeks. Fortunately, here in NC, we can play year round.
EWWW those spotted lantern things look gross. We have stink bugs every single year. They are on schedule. Trying to come in the house to hibernate for the winter.I was just reading more about them.

Chloe used to hunt and rid us of spiders and crickets. We didn’t realize how she kept the house cleared. Now we have them everywhere.They are so gross.
And I HATE killing bugs. My cat Moxie used to kill them. He couldn't resist a bug, any bug. So I'd see a spider or whatnot, go grab him, and then he'd take care of it. So I never had to. This was before stinkbugs.
Belle is not as much of a bug catcher. She does take care of crickets in the basement. So we just have to vacuum them up. Which is disgusting, but okay. Jasmine will take care of spiders...after she tortures them first. Neither will touch ants or stinkbugs. So we have to. Which I hate. But I can't pick either one of them up and just point out a bug for them like I could Moxie.
