    Well, time to check in and report the goings-on in Sillyville. I'm still in NYC, still writing, and reaching 10 years with my employer (Woo-har!). CURRENT PASSIONS: DEGOOGLED PHONES and internet privacy are very important these days, and I'm enjoying the community over at Brax.Me. Nice to have a non-political ally in Rob Braxman; I hope you're familiar with him and supportive. Favorite phone: Original Google edition Pixel and Pixel XL (2016). (In Very Silver and Quite Black, respectively. BRAX.ME reminds me somewhat of FR, and I've run into some Freepers there. NY TIMES MET DIARY writing is — just...

  • 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. Over the weekend, images posted to Twitter appeared to show a sign in Jasper, Alberta stating ‘Do not let moose lick your car.’ The images gained so much attention that Snopes set out to determine if the sign was real. 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...
  • The 6 Best Rifle Cartridges for Moose Hunting

    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...

    A bull moose made an appearance at Woodland Middle School [Coeur d'Alene, Idaho] on Tuesday. Coeur d'Alene School District spokesman Scott Maben said the students were able to all safely leave when school let out, but release took about a half-hour longer than usual because the moose had hunkered down by the bike rack near the west entrance of the school. Coeur d'Alene Police and Fish and Game officials were on scene to ensure the animal was out of high-traffic areas. Students whose bikes were on the racks near the moose were assisted by officers. The students gave the officers...

    A woman was taken to a hospital after a wild encounter with a bull moose at a popular hiking spot Sunday afternoon, state wildlife officials said. The incident happened about 2:15 p.m. along the Bloods Lake Trail near the Bonanza Flat area southwest of Park City, according to Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials. They said a family was hiking when their dogs, which were on leashes, apparently startled a bull moose that was laying down. The bull charged at the woman, causing her to fall and hit her head as it brushed past her. The woman, whose name and...

    SHAWANO, WI – A Shawano Downtown business recently had an unexpected visitor. A deer ended up inside a Main Street business last week. It may sound like the start of a bad joke, but for awhile, it was no laughing matter. Duane Schultz owns Kim’s Discount store on Main Street. He says Thursday was a day that he will never forget. A customer just walked out the door and he said a few minutes later he heard a crash. “A deer came into the door and it stopped at the table and looked at me,” he said. “All I could...
  • Introducing moose poop art and the delightfully practical woman who creates it [Maine]

    Sometimes, humanity gets me down. But then I watch a video like the one below about a Maine woman who makes art from moose poop and I cheer right up. Because when it comes to genuinely fresh ideas these days, there don't seem to be that many. But a clock made from cervid scat? A (very) real Poo Poo Platter? Now that's a new one. The idea is the brainchild of artist Mary Winchenbach, who finds the moose leavings in the woods around her house in Maine. So yes, this is a very local product.

    Moose put down after attacking a woman in Breckenridge by: Jenna Carroll BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (KDVR) — A moose was put down in Breckenridge after attacking a woman on a street in front of her home Saturday evening. Authorities say the woman was trying to get the moose out of the street so a car could pass. “Unfortunately, the victim felt too comfortable and got too close,” said Lyle Sidener, Area Wildlife Manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “Moose look like big friendly critters but they are tolerant only to a point.” Wildlife officers say they have been busy in Summit...
