Well Ralphie here goes. The birds are biting at Holm's due to the fact that they are forced to associate with waterfowl. Among other problems with them, the beaurocrats claim they are the primary source of the AI disease.
I anticipate that all rational Minnesotans will convert to chicken breeds with cushion, pea or rose combs as they become educated poultry keepers.
I wish that I had $1 for every time I heard someone say " at my age this is the last vehicle I will be purchasing". I would have quite an accumulated nest egg.
Rational thinking is in the process of leaving me, and even at my advanced age I am planning to start another flock of chickens. Variety is the spice of life they say, and I want some that lay white eggs. To avoid having to deal with winter comb damage I have decided to get Appenzeller Spitzhaubens. They may even be considered a foo foo breed by many, but I can deal with the ridicule. I have much experience with that, as I have been married for quite some number of years. I was smart enough to trick a younger woman into marrying me so that I would have someone to care for me at my advanced age.
Ralphie, here is something to think about. The used car dealers have preferred GM cars and trucks due to ease of repairs and less expensive parts costs, as relates to Ford and imports. In addition they generally have a better ride and better fuel economy over the years.
These are all the words of wisdom that I am allotted to disseminate at one time, so I am signing off.
