So I hadn't taken the time to shave for a couple days and my razor was dull so got a new one out of the package. ....I'll spare you the rest involves  no styptic powder...pencil eraser sized divot on my chin, now  my chin is  packing a bandaid... skipping church.... I handle sharp things everyday.
At least it's a regular bandaid not Buzz Light Year..... 
Also previous posts made me remember the icy hot in the jock strap prank from high school football.

Another thing to remember - don't squish a stink bug close enough to your face that it hits you in the eye --- it's worst than CS and Pepper spray together, discovered that the other day!!!

Nebraska, I have lost count of the number of times I winged myself with a razor. I have to remember to shave BEFORE I put on a clean shirt.
Southside my wife had never encountered stink bugs before we moved to the Okanagan, she freaked when they made their annual appearance. :D

I hate stink bugs. Can't grow decent tomatoes anymore. I wish the government would allow wide distribution of that Asian Samurai wasp that kills them.

pretty sure they brought in stinkbugs to kill something else then something else to kill them. every time they bring in something to kill something else it ends up being worse than what they killed. I wish ppl would stop meddling in the affairs of mother nature.

Stink bugs came over in shipping containers from Asia (Japan, China, Korea) in the late 1990's. No natural predators here, so they spread quickly. They are resistant to pesticides and cause millions of dollars per year in crop damage across the country, and they also ruin my tomatoes. Where they come from in Asia, stink bugs are not a problem because they are naturally controlled by mother nature with the Samurai wasp. I'm all for widespread release in the States, as they are already beginning to establish natural populations in some areas of the northeast (apparently some wasps are making it here in shipping containers also).

First my wife's cousin brewed a cup of coffee in her fancy k cup machine yesterday.  Her husband bought a new flavor of coffee and she wasn't sure she cared for the flavor.  When she got to the bottom of her first cup of the day she decided to check the coffee, the coffe maker and the k cup.  Yep, a stink bug between the k cup and the bottom of the cup holder.  She promptly puked in the kitchen sink.

Second, Neem Oil is an excellent organic pesticide/fungicide that prevents stink bugs from hurting tomatoes, squash and other vegetables.  It doesn't work like a synthetic pesticide but is more a systemic so it takes more frequent applications to begin with.  Combined with an insecticidal soap it is very effective.  Don't expect to see insects falling over dead initially but over a week or so it works!  The other benefit is it is a natural fungicide and leaf polish.  Just don't use it on broccoli, Neem Oil will taint the flavor.

Permetherin is an excellent stink bug repellant. Sprayed around doors, windows, attic vents etc it helps repell stink bugs.  We have a tenth of the things this year since I sprayed Permetherin.

   FWIW and because inquiring minds want to know - when I was working in Jeddah Saudi Arabia I learned a Neem tree is a chinaberry tree. I assume that is where neem oil comes from. Our CBs were round and the ones over there were oblong. Over there it is a well loved tree with many medical uses.

   Dad grew up in N. central Fla along the Suwannee River in Dixie County and most folks ran free range hogs and had a hog claim registered with the county (Remember what started the Hatfield McCoy feud?). Dad said they would cut every chinaberry tree they found because he said their hogs would starve to death sitting under a chinaberry tree waiting for a chinaberry to fall rather than getting out and foraging on acorns and other available forage. I think my horse is like that - he will starve to death waiting at the gate for me to bring him a cup of sweet feed rather than grazing on knee high pasture grass.

@SawyerTed  ok it's winter up here what do your stink bugs look like? It's past season here I just wonder if what I call a stink bug is the same. Curious that's all. 
@WV Sawmiller ,  I really think it's common in horses as well as goats....

@SawyerTed I hate those little suckers.  You vacuum them up and they stink the place up! I deal with those coming in in the farmhouse here. I'll bet they get in the attic vent and find their way down.  Fortunately I'm not long for this house!

Them critters like my squash plants, especially the zucchini plants.
So far they stay in the garden and not in the house. I don't have them on my tomatoes, yet,

I`m building a new bathroom vanity from a pile of red oak I  cut awhile back, after getting the front frame on I grabbed a nice piece off the pile and cut out the panel doors, I planed `em down,routered them up,stuck them together and set them against the vanity.....then noticed they were white oak..doh. Picture is of the second (proper lumber) set of doors.

Thank`s, it`s my first project that involves doors and drawers in quite a few years, getting the "relearning curve" back created some designer kindling wood. I made the drawer guides from wood last night, that went pretty well compared to the doors, got them first shot.

   Well, it was yesterday actually. I had a pile of free (There's that word again) dirt I got from the road department several months back. I have been using it as fill to raise the level of my lower lot next to the creek behind my boat house and fish and game cleaning station. I have been moving it whenever I had a little spare time and the weather permitted with baby John (JD 750) and my small FEL. I was nearly done and determined to finish yesterday even though the lot was a little damp. I finally got all the dirt spread now just need to dress it up a little when the ground dries out (or freezes?) and I can drive the tractor over it with my blade and not bog down too badly. Anyway I put baby John up last night and decided to use him to move my stack of mantels as a neighbor wants a badly split up hickory one for a river table.Of course it is on the bottom of the stack so I had to move the 10 above it. Mostly they are stacked 3 mantels wide and each is 3-4 inches thick and mostly 8-10 feet long so they are pretty heavy. It was down in the low 20's last night so I plugged in the block heater for 30-40 minutes while I worked on some other project. I cranked baby John up and started to back out to the front of the shed to put the forks in the bucket but John kept veering right. I checked to see that I wasn't in a frozen rut then checked the tires to make sure none were flat. No problem there. Finally I realized the soft mud on the front tie rods had frozen and would not allow me to steer. I knocked enough off with a spud bar and hatchet  to get some range of motion then drove down to the lot to the spigot and washed all the mud out solving the problem. Just a reminder - if you are are working in soft mud in the winter you would be well served to wash, power wash if possible, any mud and snow away from the steering connections on your mobile equipment. 

   BTW - mill feet will stick in the ice and frozen mud too if you dug them in and you have had rain or melting snow so you might be well served to put them on wooden blocks or such.
