European garden spider, Araneus diadematus.

Yeah, those classical webs are called "orbs". I've watched an orb-weaver spider weave its web. It's actually pretty cool to see how they do it. It takes so much time, too! Since then I always feel a bit bad whenever I accidentally damage one.

Good Lord Kaelci a whole family of daddy long legs? They live in our cellar and that's fine because I rarely ever go down there.

Right? I was sitting in bed with Mrs. Shepherd watching something on Netflix - Luther I think - and we both watched this one little spider make its way across the ceiling, right
over
me.
Then it lost its footing and dropped.

She laughed her pretty little derriere off at how fast I leaped out of bed and took my shirt off to make sure it was not crawling on me. LOL

The people who let tarantulas crawl on them and stuff - ugh. Sorry, not my cup of tea. I'll stick to dogs, thanks.

You can get bat houses at most of the home improvement stores around where i live. I intend to buy a few and cultivate the population.

Portsmouth, on Aquidneck Island. My father did classified stuff for a defense contractor at the naval yard in Newport. When you're only 7, those battleships and carriers are HUGE.

Nice - such cool markings on those guys.


Alrighty everyone, gotta head out - Talk to you all later tonight probably!

Ooooh, you lived in a nice area! Bye Hun! Have a great rest of the night! Now I want to know about the classified stuff. Sure, leave us with that cliff hanger and just take off. Sheesh!

Whatever this is supposed to be.

Here's a pic of one of mine, link so as not to disturb the spider sensitive


Also:

Some species, especially Pholcus phalangioides, are commonly called daddy long-legs spider, granddaddy long-legs spider, carpenter spider, daddy long-legger, or vibrating spider. Confusion often arises because the name "daddy long-legs" is also applied to two distantly related arthropod groups: the harvestmen (which are arachnids but not spiders), and crane flies (which are insects).


Confusion may arise, but they're still referred to as the same thing. /shrug

I got those up here in Canada too. They're my least favourite kind of spiders. Up here they don't do much, they're so lazy they don't even bother weaving a web. Lol

I never knew there was another meaning to the word idiot! That's awesome! Thanks for sharing.

I do cook, try to stay away from baking. I lose control with baked goods. I love them so much!

Hello Chelsdh! Nice to see you! What are some of your favorite meals to make? Any good crock pot recipes?

I enjoyed it a lot. I love the smell of the sea and the sand on the beaches in the summer. Now, as an adult, I appreciate the old colonial style houses.

a reply to: kaelci
Well, those guys look pretty innocuous. We get the speedy little hunter spiders that don't make webs and when they crawl on you they are fast.
edit on 4-13-2017 by PrairieShepherd because: Erm, sort of didn't put anything in the post - LOL

Hello chelsdh - I am similar. I cook but don't do well with baking. Something about it I just don't get, apparently, but man I can improvise an awesome stir fry.

Night - I'll see if I can track down my favorite "Asian BBQ" chicken recipe. It's from a paleo cookbook and is for a crock pot. Really delicious and super-easy to make.

Night, I'm back to work tomorrow, so I will be headed off to bed soon.

Good luck tomorrow.

Try and get some sleep.

They -are- pretty innocuous, which is the brilliant thing about them

And they eat all the mosquitoes AND keep redback spiders at bay. Last thing you want is a redback infestation in a house with little humans running around.

I live in Australia, I think it's safe to say without expanding upon the statement that we get big spiders too


Anyway!
I've been having ATS problems ALL morning. Tried to respond to the Elfie One earlier, but nope. Tried to respond to this spidery Shepherd post earlier, but nope. Tried to send PM's here and there, but nope. Tried to show off my glorious stew that I am cooking today, but nope!

Curse ATS and their shoddy servers whenever "events" are happening in the world.
*nods solemnly, glares at ATS, and wanders off back to the Bushes O' Lurking while muttering under her breath.*
