  • The Sordid History of Swiss Cheese

    01/03/2021 12:30:53 PM PST · by SamAdams76 · 33 replies
    300 B.C. Somewhere in what is now Switzerland: three Celts make camp for the night in the dark of a pine forest. One snaps branches from a nearby tree while others empty milk from crude hide bladders into a small wooden bucket. One pine branch becomes a spit to hold the bucket, the other branch a stirring rod. They stir the curds and nod approvingly to one another at the smell. They are making Swiss cheese, long before the birth of Switzerland, or even Julius Caesar, and some 2300 years before the grand opening of Foods For Living.When Julius Caesar...

    Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Officials in a Canadian town are posting signs with a very important instruction for local drivers: "Do not let moose lick your car." The signs, posted in Jasper, Alberta, ask drivers to keep their vehicles a safe distance from moose to make sure the animals don't get a taste of the road salt that inevitably ends up covering the sides of cars driving through the alpine town. "They're obsessed with salt, it's one of the things they need for the minerals in their body," Jasper National Park spokesman Steve Young told CNN. "They usually get it...

    Canadians are being warned not to let moose lick their cars. It might sound like a weird joke, but it’s actually true.

The answer is, yes, the sign is legit and this is a very real issue in parts of Canada. These images, as well as a separate video on Facebook, were snapped along Maligne Lake Road in Jasper, an...

    Comparatively few people get to hunt moose. In Maine, where we have masses of moose, the odds on drawing a tag in any given year are 1,300 to one. In Alaska, where the moose are many, and there’s no problem getting a license, but for a nonresident, it’s an expensive and difficult hunt. On the other hand, I consider moose to be the best of all wild meats, and there’s a lot of it if you get one. So, let us consider the best cartridges for same. Moose are not smart or tough, but they are big. Bulls in the...
