Hank and John forgot to say “don’t @ me” while deriding grapenuts, which I think are pretty great! Are they not known as one of the better tasting healthy cereals? I’ll admit they have a freaking weird name though! It adds to the intrigue lol!

Whaa? You can definitely keep the bugs out! Well, not all of them if you live next to fields, but for the most part. What you have to do is take care of the space around your house so the grass doesn't get so long and full of bugs. Keep your food locked tight and your dishes washed to stop ants and roaches. I guess you can't really keep out spiders and gekos, but those are harmless. Put traps if you start getting mice..

Funny thing about lizards (I live in Longwood, FL): My husband and I were at a board game convention (😁) in Orlando, so there were lots of tourists. We saw a couple of guys hovering over a lizard, taking pictures. They were so excited and we were very amused 🦎
