Hey Felix,

Down here in Georgia we call the lightning bugs, however we sorta drop the "g" and say lightnin bugs.  You can put them in a clear jar and watch them glow, but ya can't keep 'em in there overnight cause they'll die.  If you want to get sadistic with them, kids down this-a-way (myself included) would catch 'em and wait for the light to turn on, squish it off and there's sticky stuff on the unlit side and we'd put the "light" on our fingers as rings that glowed.  These days (or daze) we just look forward to seeing 'em 'cause it means summer's here....well....summer temperatures are here.  Ain't they cute though???

  Hey...Scooter and I camped out at my soon-to-be-named 'Peb Miller 
  Memorial Waterfall' last night.  We were noticing these little, 
  green-glowing things along the spring/creek. We investigated. Yes, we 
  did. We found this little bugs, about 3/16ths of an inch long and almost 
  miniature arrowhead shaped...with the head being the wide end. At their 
  tail was a small spot that'd glow green occasionally. Anybody know what 
  these things are?

  Hmmm....very similar. The one in the picture is lit up more than what I 
  saw. And, mine were darker with orangish edges. Similar shape, though. 
  (as an ironic sidenote...the tent scooter slept in was one he bought 
  from none other than Ken Bennett. )

  Yesterday I was out raking the yard, our snow finally being gone and
  along the fence line on the NW side a large limb had fallen on a small
  sapling that was growing beside the large tree. I dragged (too heavy
  to lift) the limb to my "to cut" wood pile but after removing it from
  the sapling the younger tree remained bent over at a perfect 90 degree
  angle. I have no doubt that the top, now horizontal for about 2-3'
  will revert to growing upwards this summer and if it survives 50 or
  more years the large tree will be gone and people will puzzle about
  how this tree came to grow vertically for more than 2', horizontally
  for 2-3', then vertically again.

  As a side remark, I always reveal my age, which will be older on Earth Day, 2007.  I hope that each of you will do something to help Earth or to enjoy Earth tomorrow, celebrating my B-Earth Day with me.  Yeah, it's debatable.  Which is older, Earth or me?  Be nice, chillins.
   
  And stay safe.
