    The face fly is a tough-to-manage pest of pastured cattle. In addition to the irritation it causes while feeding, it can play a major role in the spread of the bacteria that causes pinkeye within and between herds.

    Female face flies visit cattle for short periods of time to get the protein they need for egg production. Sources include tears, mucus and saliva of cattle. The fly’s sponging mouthparts have small, abrasive teeth that scratch tender tissue around the eye to stimulate tear flow; the tears are then blotted up by the fly’s specialized mouthparts.

Or another person said they would find themselves on the stairway and couldn't remember if they were going up or coming down the stairs.

    The worst forgetfulness is to forget people. This Memorial Day weekend think of others, love others and remember others. Remember deceased and living people this weekend.
