Went to the "bottle farm" back in the 50's with my aunt and some cousins. There was a tour guide, lots of bottles, cow and horse skulls on posts around the place. The guide told a story about when the wife of the guy that lived there passed away, he sat her in the corner of the living room, and a few days later, the sheriff came and took the body away. I mentioned this to my dad a few years ago, and all he said was "Zero Winter Swartsel"
