Thanks for the offer on the PM's, I might take you up on that.
lol- family
When I was real little, we had a few Christmas holidays together, with both grandmas in the house. The atheist would always keep at the Catholic until they ended up in a great big fight! Same thing every time. lol, NO, it was not lol. Grandpa, the Native American, drank a lot....
Hope you do, I suggested PM as my e-mail is not functioning,
I am working on it. LOL about the religious set-toos...that
sounds like fun, lol.
I was witness to some shocking things when I was small..just kidding,
but we had a bowl of Holy Water on the hat stand in the hall, my
Uncle would cross himself with it on his way out when he was going
to the 'dogs'(dog racing) for luck..my Grandmother would go mad with him.
I think your Grandpa can be excused drinking, all things considered!...:)

Don't get me wrong Grace, I wholeheartedly agree with you and am making a concerted effort to bite my tongue as it were and stay off the soapbox. Alas, as Boomer said, I'm trying to keep it moderate.
Denny thinks its ok to kill defenseless animals with abandon, you & I disagree.
We will never convince him of the inhumanity of hunting and his love of guns anymore than he will convince us of the sport in hunting and his right and need to walk around carrying one.
I see you here Quincy...just thought I would say Hi....

Pack up your shotguns and come to Ohio. We have more deer now than when Daniel Boone was blazing a trail. Don't limit your hunting experience. I don't hunt but trek the woods and saw two large pointed bucks in a farmers' field.

Mighty Quinn we will just have to agree to disagree. Grace is consistent in her view point and doesn't set the life of one animal over the life of another animal. To me a deer is the same as a hog and a cow. I am a meat eater

Hey Quinn, 90 minutes from Columbus puts us on the other side of Richmond, Indiana. How far is that from you and the mister?
BTW, enjoyed the pic!

Yahoo showed the rooftops in China or Japan where hundreds or thousands of shark fins were being dried out for the delicacy that is shark fin soup. Horrible.
They catch the shark, cut the fin off and throw back in the ocean! Catch a fish and eat the thing.
Oh that's right mercury or nuclear poison...
Stop polluting!

Oh for gods sake Denny! That's condescending. My aunts and uncles lived near the Chicago stockyard. I know how the hamburger got on my table.

You kill for sport, admit it. You use defenseless animals as an excuse to use your self proclaimed 2nd amendment right to have an arsenal to shoot and kill things. How many deer heads are on your wall? Justify it anyway you want.

You live in the metropolis of where again? Dallas I think. You're not in the backwoods of Montana or frontier of Alaska. Killing your supper is not a necessity so there is no pressing for you go out and kill anything with fur or feathers.

And the as far as managing the deer population, that's a crock. If you left nature alone the coyotes would take care of the deer population. It's called the natural order of a food chain and by killing the deer, you've taken away the coyote and wolves' food supply....then you say you kill the coyotes to save the deer....who you shoot and kill anyway. Be honest about it. Trying to PC sugar coat doesn't make it any better in some folks' eyes.

You're not doing the animal kingdom or your family's food supply any favors.

On Jan. 1, the shark fin ban went into effect in Illinois, being the first in-land state to do so.

Kudos!

For ease of travel, I-65/I-70 for Quinny and I-70 for you is the route connection. Richmond or east edge of Indianapolis (or in between could be a meeting point).

Or an alternate would be US 30 (or 33 where need be) to Fort Wayne-ish. But, that's small towns and traffic lights -- in particular "The Region" as Quinny heads east.

Before the treat of viewing the first 2 hours of Downton Abbey 3 last evening, PBS broadcast "Secrets of Highclere Castle", the setting of the program. That episode was actually the first of a mini-series which will also explore Hampton Court (Henry VIII home castle), the Diana Spencer home, and one other which I can't remember.

Anyway ... on the Highclere Estate (5,000 acres which exceeds Central Park NYC according to the show) is a deer-stalker employed full-time to keep the deer populations of 3 species on the estate under control. As you stated, there is no animal predator there on the estate.

Whether it was for camera or really true, the man out in the dark of the morn on watch and readiness stated that killing them was not taken lightly, and a moment of solemn respectful prayer is due to the loss of life. That seems like that's from the ancient and Celts, as it is with the ancient first peoples here.

Yeah, Muncie is an option. Right now, I can't commit for a Spring meeting so I have no "favor" for any option.

Just trying to help.

And didn't the Native Americans thank Mother Earth and say a prayer of gratitude to the animal they killed for the meat and hide (?)? Something I've read in many a book written by a Native American.

Human beings are also animals, and also meat. You are setting one life above another if you think you have carte blanche to kill any animal just because it provides meat.

TKY! Just an extra.

Richmond would also work. Its over 90 minutes for us but no biggie. Check your map, Oak Forest IL is just off the IL/IN border and its a straight shot down I65 for us.

You bring your cars; I'll bring the dogs a and they can have a hoot n nanny!
