I am beginning to think that the world is going mad around me. A few months ago, I saw pictures of a garment made out of spider silk on a catwalk. Today I read in an article that violin strings can be made out of spider silk.

Sorry – but spiders are horrible creepy-crawlies that send me jumping onto the nearest chair and screaming for someone to rescue me. I have no desire to ever own anything that has come into contact with one of these evil creatures.

What will be next – spider farms? Spider petting zoos? I hope not or I may have to find somewhere spider free to live.
