Scorpions and Indiana Jones!

On Sunday, May 25, 12-year-old Megan Templeton received a rather painful surprise while shopping with her family at the Barboursville Wal-Mart. She was stung by a stow away scorpion. Megan says she had her hand inside the watermelon box when the scorpion crawled up and stung the tip of her finger on Sunday afternoon. Check outr this link to see Megan and her fine scorpion pet.

Even though they are rare occurances, we hear of tarantulas hiding in shipments of bananas and stow away exotic plants that become invasive in our area. It is no wonder that even smaller organisms such as viruses and bacteria are transported easily around the world.

If you clicked on the link for the story of Megan Templeton, you realize that she and her family had just seen the new Indiana Jones movie.

Judy and I viewed the film last Tuesday and found it to be very enjoyable. It was super to see Indiana Jones back on the silver screen. We would definitely recommend "Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". At 65 years old, Harrison Ford did a great job . It is a wonderful George Lucas film and directed by Steven Speilberg.
