Next Time You Don’t Feel Well…

Have a bowl of

Geht's Own Cricket Noodle Soup

and a sandwich on the side made with

Bumblebees chink Light "Tuna" Made with real bees

I think of the movie Snowpiercer and wonder what horrified people more – the thought of the main character engaging in cannibalism by eating an infant or the image of passengers eating “protein bricks” straight from the bug hopper.

Both ideas were meant to horrify North Americans. Culturally we are taught not to eat either. How hard do you think the push back will be when those who think they are all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips try to force insects on us?

I don’t know what you are complaining about.

Squished spiders are delicious!

My understanding is that murder hornets don’t have any natural predators in this country. Perhaps we could serve them up to all those trying to force others to eat bugs. We’ll tell them it’s “bee”f.


Handmade Butterfly Quilt.
In some parts of the world, the weather is already starting to cool. Be prepared for those chilly nights with a warm, handmade quilt. This twin sized Patchwork Butterfly Quilt is hand appliqued, hand embroidered and hand quilted. (If you’d like, you can tell friends and family you made it yourself in your spare time during the lock down!)

This colorful Patchwork Butterfly Quilt, and many other fine items, are available from my shop at L Bowman Studios.

Encounter With a Bug

Recently the question was asked if we’ve ever had an  encounter with a bug.  Well, here is mine:

Bee Sting Eye

I am aesthetically challenged under the best of circumstances, so the bee who stung my eye did not do me any favors.  (This has happened to me twice, but I guess I only took a picture of one.)
