They have started again. They sound a bit like a frog on speed. It is going to go on for half the night.... a night when I cannot close the windows because of the heat and my need for fresh air.

This is what is the cause of the problem and why I will not sleep for about three months. So expect an angry dragon tomorrow.

I think that they are bad cicadas and just want to have their evil way with one of these:

So they sit outside our window and sing their love songs all night. You can hear a cicada from half a mile.

I heard that cicadas are full of well digastable protein. Like water beetles.
Not that I am up to give any hints...

I wasn't thinking of eating them.

But maybe one of these would.
