Spring is coming. I know how the landscape looks now: sludge and snow piled along curbs, a biting 30 mph wind gust that seems to go right through you, and every day looks as dark and as dreary as the last; but believe me, spring is coming. Although the calendar doesn’t vary from year to year, we humans have no idea which exact day in 2017 Mother Nature will let us know that the season of rebirth has begun. But the insects know.

Now to be completely honest with you, I was once a serial dater that ended any relationship I had before it even began. I had a High School sweetheart and things went horribly wrong. I could probably write an article or two just trying to explain that story, but let’s just keep it simple and say things didn’t work out and I gave up … [Read More]
