Hello Pensmaster! Happy birthday to your Dad, enjoy the family visit!聽

I hope you are about done with that cold/flu.


Sorry you are sick.


Drive safely, looking forward to pics.


LOL. I sprayed someone in the face with the dogs kennel cough stuff before.


I hatched marans and OE together not so long ago.


Thanks Mike. Visit went very well. Tomorrow is the main party but today was his birthday so he made it. yesss.gif

If I set traps, I would would have to quit my job with all the time I spent relocating raccoons, only to have new ones, plus possums, skunks, and armadillos come back in, as well as all the neighbors' cats (ok, so I don't think armadillos eat chickens, but they are wrecking the garden!) And I can't keep the 'coons out of the chicken water outside of the coops. I just try to protect the chickens at night and keep the local rat population at bay...

Armadillos = Mycobacterium leprae !!

Yup - and indeed, we can't grow it in the lab. How do we culture it, you may ask?

Why injecting it into the foot pads of nine-banded armadillos, of course!!!

(Benny, here in South Texas, we've got anthrax, brucellosis, dengue, zika, you name it - it's an interesting place to be a microbiologist!)

My comment that Jerusalem Artichokes were the best source of sugar for alcohol was from a 2 day alcohol fuels seminar put on by the Mother Earth News. They taught how to make alcohol from a wide array of vegetative sources and the yield of each. They also taught how to convert any gasoline engine to run on alcohol.
There was a pickup truck, a car, a Harley Davidson and a generator all running on alcohol. After hours of the Harley running on pure alcohol, you could put your hand right on the pipes and it didn't burn.

100 is a good number.聽 Tell him happy birthday from all of us.


Mother Earth News did a great in depth study of all the old methods of storage.

Some were worse than doing nothing.

Question on the sugar level of Jerusalem artichokes. Is that processed sugar? I've read they are supposed to be good for diabetics would the sugar level be a contradiction? When I've eaten them they don't taste sweet to me.

Told dad hi for everyone. Learned some more family history tonight. Fun night.


It's inulin, a different sort of polysaccharide...

Cooking two Quiche Lorraines tonight. They will be chilled, cut into wedges, and each slide frozen individually for single serve dinners. Tomorrow will be the fruit cake (I'm overdue on that - will start soaking the dried fruit in booze tonight) and a kale quiche. And flan. I'm getting cooking done before the holidays, and now that I'm feeling a bit better, I'm on a roll. :D

I feel a bit bad - I've gone from begging friends to take eggs to being very stingy (since they're not laying much, and I'm also saving hatching eggs) - short of seeing the chickens every day, I'm not sure they all quite understand the seasonality for those who don't use lights. (I knew, though, since my farmer who provided by eggs pre-chickens was always low or out this time of year...)聽

I hate when that happens - it's so disorienting and sometimes frightening, esp. if you're not sure what's real. Wish I was there to give you a real hug. Or hand you a drink, either way... :lol:

Puppy says don't worry, be happy.聽

Those are some fantastic looking chickens! I hope your friend lists you take photos. You said it was hard to find good examples of some breeds there in Israel - this looks like a great source!

(Are you in the market for more chickens, or just going to see a friend? Beware chicken math!!!!)

ONLY because you asked (I would never correct you otherwise, your English is so much better than my Hebrew!) - Koch's postulates. (And trickiness). English is a bizarre language, I can't imagine learning it as a second language, and impressed with anyone who does. When I took German, I was astonished at how... LOGICAL... it was! Dutch, too!聽:ep

But yes, you have to be careful with Koch's postulates - that stymied us in the identification of Hepatitis C virus for a long time, for example (a frighteningly common chronic viral infection). Also Whipples disease...
