    Re: My New Piece

    PS--a pretty word, but why was it named for a (shudder) bug?

    I wasn't aware it was a bug. I thought it was a girl's name.

    Are you sure you're not thinking of cicadas? Those are bugs.

    I did Google it & found that a Cassida is, indeed, a species of beetle, but it is also an old English Girl's name, meaning "Curly Haired", meaning that the name probably preceded the name given to the beetle. Perhaps the beetle was named after the person who discovered it (or named for someone).

    Are you saying you wrote a Beatles song?

    I couldn't get to sleep last night & only had a few hours dozing, so it took me a little while to get that.
