I had a root canal a few months ago, right before going in for the checkup just prior to today.

Ok, now are you taking the advice you gave me about diatoms? You know, to conquer water pollution and make big bucks? ;)

That is an amazing link, t/y. We now have Buffalo being farmed here....sadly.
Same here, as is elk.

I hope you enjoy these links. Bison "built" the first road in southern Indiana, to be used by native Americans and explorers and early settlers of "the frontier" as it would be to much of early colonial America.

breading brood stock for a new fish farm

also culturing the feed to help stimulate hormones for breading, makes for healthier fish too

For the moment, disregard "white men" except for a nominal number of trappers/ "mountain men" trading with native Americans. The balance was operative:

1) bison are ranging animals; they would move around as food needs required and available.
2) diseases.
3) predators such as wolves, and where grizzly bears ranged.
4) native Americans primarily taking as needed; and certainly some for trading purposes.

Even with the natives accessing firearms, it would have taken quite awhile for this balance to be altered without the impact of "white man's" manifest destiny as assisted by railroads, and the slaughter by professional hunters, including the national agenda to deplete native Americans food resources and way of life.

A documentary on PBS right now concerns mining strike in the copper region of MI in about 1913. I'll hope it will be re-broadcast a time or two in the next several days.

Happy breeding and culturing!

Sleigh bells ring, are ya listening?
In the lane ... and the yard ... snow is glistening.

The Full Cold Moon (or the Full Long Nights Moon) is reflecting brightly off the snow.

A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight.
Posting in a winter wonderland.

Nope, I'm staying inside. It's crisp out there.

Adieu and golden slumbers ... each and every one.

DW,

You often speak of GOLDEN SLUMBERS,
And it always evokes the memory
of
a lullaby by that name from when
I was very young>

"Golden slumbers kiss your eyes

Smiles await you when you rise

Sleep pretty darling, do not cry

And I will sing a lullaby":)

But, here's the thing.
After my brief sojurn as 'spelling police'....lol....I reverted
to being who I am, which is,'to each his own'.....
It isn't how you and I were raised, or what we would do ourselves,
and if it were up to me these birds would not be bred for this
purpose, but, rather someone who is an expert in that field
rather than some amateur who would perhaps only cause injury,
that is why I was sorry it was a wasted journey for Denny in that respect.
I can't in all honesty, condemn anybody for their life style simply because
it isn't my own.
Although......I make no pretence, if I were starving, if I knew anybody who
was starving, I would kill to provide food.
I think most of modern civilized people would not be able to pull a trigger in sport. Many might not be able to do it out of necesity.

Sir Tally.....the mind boggles...but why Chicago?
See you in a bitty....as they say in the Midlands
My guess would, that if we allowed 70 million Buffolo to roam the prairies as they once did, there would be no CHicago .... or any other major city.

natuer does it's own population control ... I woudl guess that the 70 million was probably as many as there would ever be ...

"I hope you enjoy these links."

I do, I find them very enlightening, it baffles me completely when folk
say the United States has no history as such.

I am watching PBS more often and find they cover much of what is mentioned
in these links.

Great pity the 'Trace' is disappearing from sight........
