level (DeBlieu 1998: 83). People usually fail to notice a swarm unless the
individual insects are really large, for instance like locusts, so that, in sufficient
numbers, they might begin to darken the sky. Yet we cannot interpret this
passage from the Nihon Sho-ki to mean that 627 was a year of the locust.
Especially in view of the insects' sudden dispersal, any theory of locust infestation
seems strained. Moreover ...

lost months ...

Around the house, Gully was a little on the dull side . All of his personality was
channeled into his stomach (not necessarily a bad thing in a show dog, since
they are “baited” with liver in the ring to make them look alert .) The best example
