    I read that a while back an got a kick out of it. Use to hang out on the river when I was in collage an we met at one of the TVA dams. Any time we told someone where we were, we said "drive down the dam road an at the end of the dam road you will see us in the dam parking lot."

    That is awesome! Sadly I was unable to see the pictures of the dam and if the department actually knew what they were doing I would have thought they could tell the difference in a beaver dam and a dam made by humans.

    I wonder which authority did the site visit and concluded that this was a manmade dam. I was told a story about a govenment guy that was hired to work with farmers and ranchers and he referred to livestock as "barnyard animals"

    Quote:In my part of the world, "barnyard animals" is an acceptable and often used term. It differentiates them from pets and wildlife.

    I know farmers and ranchers who do the same, they use it to clarify the difference between large range livestock and livestock who are often put in paddocks and barns for a significant chunk of their life.

    I wonder if he gave a dam to Scarlett? Perhaps the wildlife department should go to some beach and see if some dam Yankees are on vacation.
