    Cool John and thanks Viper :-)

    I had stuff going to a backup on a separate hard drive but some stuff there was even corrupted. Luckily the important stuff was saved or could be reproduced with a scanner and some time.

    Welcome back! I've been busy for the last month but should be around more now again.

    Good to have to you back, but the crash sounds like no fun. I hope you manage to get at least some of the data back.

    Thanks Brian and Heatheranne

    I found some fly strips and hung a few around the kitchen and living room. They seem to have disappeared mostly. Some still manage to show up around the coffee maker and sink but nothing like the first day home from vacation.

    Hope you enjoy the pics. Only frogs we came across were the ones pictures and the common coqui.

    I was more interested in the lizards since the numbers of geckos and common lizards were unbelievable around the house. I guess there is one somewhere behind our place there that will take chickens and cats and I really was interested in finding him but no luck.

    Hi Don, sorry to hear about your frog care problems. Old enough to legally be able to drive but not competent enough to manage simple frog care tasks for a week and half. Hmm...

    Have you tried flypaper? Not sure if that will work. There are specific fruit fly traps 0 Tanglefoot Fruit Fly Trap ;Everything ;Summer ;London Drugs that you can probably find where you are. The brand of the ones in the link are Tanglefoot, they also make glue like stuff to make your own fly paper with, if you can find it maybe you could goop it around the edge of your bowls. Or upside down duct tape. I've never had to corral fruit flies so I can't suggest anything else. Good luck though!

    I saw you had posted a bunch of pics from your trip but haven't had time to go through them yet- they looked interesting though!

    Thanks Viper but they only go to the edge and sit there not going in. We are going to add vinegar to the bottom of the garbage can and as they fill in we will just take the can outside and boot them out. They seem to like the vinegar cups in the garbage.

    I'm guessing you know that you should add dish-detergent in the vinegary break the surface tension and thereby drowning them. Other than that, I can help you much. Except banning the frog-torturer

    Well the vinegar sat out over night and lured many more flies to our kitchen and out one fly in the vinegar.
    Any help here would be great.

    I' m use to the coqui. It is the boosters that wake me every time a car headlights go by after 2 am.

    Sorry to hear about the poor frog. Hope it's OK. Have you experienced the wake up call of the coqui?

    Poor froggy. Hopefully he will be ok.

    Well the frog wandered off and is somewhere in the front garden.
    I am guessing he has one injured leg from the incident.

    Swellings down and we now see he got me in two spots on the hand and they still hurt like the dickens.
