I agree. I have known some sweet and clever domesticated rats. The wild ones are rather sneaky and disgusting. Right now we are being overrun with prarie dogs and squirrels. I am ready to call those Duck Dynasty boys to do some varmit relocation.

My mom has a peach tree she's been pampering for 14 years, and this year, it finally produced some peaches....the squirrels are in heaven.

She's building a wooden skeleton around the tree, to deter them.

I wish her good luck...squirrels are also REALLY smart.

Capybaras are native to my own native territory.

One more thing Lyndi can put me down for (the rat thing?).

BTW: the skin of the capybara is attractive and repels water, and for that reason is prized for ladies' purses.

Now for a change of pace.

Me darling hubby and I were shopping at the local Wally World this afternoon. Being Saturday, there were lots of people around. As we passed a magnificent collection of graham crackers, giant marshmallows and Hershey's chocolate bars, I was seized by that overwhelming temptation known to every American girl or woman who was a Girl Scout at any time during the last 45 years :)

"Want to make s'mores?" I asked darling hubby. "What are s'mores?" said he, innocently.

Shocked, I indignantly informed him, "They're only the greatest snack ever invented, a proud accomplishment of the Girl Scouts, U.S.A.!"

"Why would I have heard of them?" Darling hubby replied. "You're the only Girl Scout I've ever had."

I expect the coroner here at any moment.

Stalker alert:

Capybaras are native to the waters of Peru. Other than that, they've been transplanted, mostly by seafarers, who kept them as pets.
As the world's largest rodent, they are the least pervasive transplanted rodent...especially in the United States.

Here, they're mostly in zoos....but they also have a foothold in Florida.

Which is also a zoo. JMO

Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout.

Living within shouting distance of Camp Scott, now defunct, but formerly in Locust Grove OK, I'm also familiar with dip bags, ditty bags, and latrines.

Boy Scouts aint got a patch on the girls....and we sell more cookies, toooooooooooo.

"Funny how he mentions Nixon's secret war but he conveniently leaves out what China and the Russians were doing in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos."

You draw a false equivilency here.

Are you saying Russia/China's actions somehow authorized Nixon to ignore the Constitution and conduct wars without Congressional approval?

Fascinating...

"Khmer Rouge leader accepts responsibility for Cambodia's Killing Fields"

Precisely, the "killing fields" were not the US's responsibility

"miner49er wrote:
"Yep and Cambodia fared so much better when the US left Vietnam.""

Nope, miner49er was NOT the author of that sentance, I just quoted it in my reply (note the quotation marks I rmployed).

Other countries killing their citizens is regrettable... But we bear responsibility for thousands of civilian deaths in countries we had no business invading.

Are you revisionists trying to justify the US involvement in Vietnam?

Fascinating...

With the reference to the Khmer Rouge killing fields circa 1975 are you suggesting that America Invaded Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos to prevent Pol Pot from killing civilians?

Amazing, our war on Vietnam began before 1961, and Cambodia was never mentioned as a justification for war.

"Operation 34A (full name, Operational Plan 34A, also known as OPLAN 34Alpha) was a highly-classified U.S. program of covert actions against the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV or North Vietnam), consisting of agent team insertions, aerial reconnaissance missions and naval sabotage operations. "

You probably believe that whole Tonkin Gulf BS... it's as bad as Hitler claiming Poles attack on a German Army radio outpost as an excuse to invade Poland.

Here's a beauty:

It's a naked mole rat. Recently scientists using them for medical research have found something interesting. They can't get cancer. They've hit them with radiation, drugs, herbicides, pesticides, even direct injections of live cancer cells. Nada. Appears their cells are flush with a long-chain molecule called hyaluronan which cancer proofs them. Scientists believe they may have found the holy grail of preventing cancer, my guess is the likes of Pfizer and Merck see it as a holy headache. We'll see who wins.

Now that's a face only a mother mole rat could love.

As for cancer cures, there are a lot - few of which are legal in this country. Don't get me started.

You are forgetting one big thing China and the Russians had leaders that could do anything they wanted. But here in America President Nixon needed to inform members of congress which he never did.
