I wonder what evolutionary value there is for a turkey to chase large rolling objects?

What instinct does a rolling ball trigger?

https://unsophisticook.com/lemon-shake-up-recipe/

BTW - "The " Indiana State Fair is a agricultural Fair - There is the main road - I will call it - between the Coliseum and the Main Grandstands = Food row ! They have the Pork Tent - Beef Tent - Lamb Tent - The World Famous - Dairy Barn ! Oh God - they have the best Milk Shakes + Toasted cheese sandwich's ! Then all the Brats - Deep fried foods - you name it + The Taaffe wagon - they make it right there - Some good junk food FOR sure ! They even have a Farmers Day at the fair !
Guess what? I read the recipe for the Lemon Shake Up and realized that a zillion years ago when either the Santa Rosa KC or the Petaluma KC show was held at the fairgrounds closest to them the Lions Club did the food for the show--they made the best hamburgers w/fried onions (not deep fried onion rings but heaps of fried in butter onions to put on your hamburgers. The other thing they had was what they called Lemonade. But it was really the Lemon Shake Up made in huge big crocks--they dished it out into big plastic cups with a soup ladle and made sure every one got at least one chunk of squeezed half lemon and a big handful of ice. I loved those things.

Washington State Fair was basically a Agricultural Fair when I was a kid--my stepdad took us every year. Dairy barn there had home churned ice cream, milk shakes and cones all very yummm!! Fisher (flour mills and related products) made scones from their scone mix from 7am until 2 pm--also yumm. The vet school at Pullman always had a cheese exhibit--and sold cheeses manufactured from the milk of the dairy herd there--it's where I learned to love sharp cheddars--now I buy it by mail direct from Washington State (now University not College).

Geeze-old memories--hard to find real agricultural fairs any more.

Wandering around the internet.....I think we all have been here:



"I'll Never Forget a Dog Named Beau" by Jimmy Stewart

He never came to me when I would call
Unless I had a tennis ball,
Or he felt like it,
But mostly he didn't come at all.
When he was young
He never learned to heel
Or sit or stay,
He did things his way.

Discipline was not his bag
But when you were with him things sure didn't drag.
He'd dig up a rosebush just to spite me,
And when I'd grab him, he'd turn and bite me.

He bit lots of folks from day to day,
The delivery boy was his favorite prey.
The gas man wouldn't read our meter,
He said we owned a real man-eater.

He set the house on fire
But the story's long to tell.
Suffice it to say that he survived
And the house survived as well.

On the evening walks, and Gloria took him,
He was always first out the door.
The Old One and I brought up the rear
Because our bones were sore.

He would charge up the street with Mom hanging on,
What a beautiful pair they were!
And if it was still light and the tourists were out,
They created a bit of a stir.

But every once in a while, he would stop in his tracks
And with a frown on his face look around.
It was just to make sure that the Old One was there
And would follow him where he was bound.

We are early-to-bedders at our house--
I guess I'm the first to retire.
And as I'd leave the room he'd look at me
And get up from his place by the fire.

He knew where the tennis balls were upstairs,
And I'd give him one for a while.
He would push it under the bed with his nose
And I'd fish it out with a smile.

And before very long
He'd tire of the ball
And be asleep in his corner
In no time at all.

And there were nights when I'd feel him
Climb upon our bed
And lie between us,
And I'd pat his head.

And there were nights when I'd feel this stare
And I'd wake up and he'd be sitting there
And I reach out my hand and stroke his hair.
And sometimes I'd feel him sigh
and I think I know the reason why.

He would wake up at night
And he would have this fear
Of the dark, of life, of lots of things,
And he'd be glad to have me near.

And now he's dead.
And there are nights when I think I feel him
Climb upon our bed and lie between us,
And I pat his head.

And there are nights when I think
I feel that stare
And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair,
But he's not there.

Oh, how I wish that wasn't so,
I'll always love a dog named Beau.

For those that hate window a/c, you might consider a portable a/c unit. They aren't as efficient as even a window unit, but if you have only a week or so where you might have a terribly hot week, they can really help. We've had one for years for the living room, and they are nice because you don't have to remove your window screen. You do have to occasionally empty them (they collect the water that a normal window unit drains out the back in the bottom) but I don't find that all that difficult.

@ bug and mel...

I was up at about 6am this morning. Opened all the doors and windows. It was 60 degrees outside (High 80's yesterday). I have McCoy trained so that he will not leave the house w/o m OK. By nine I had the house down to 66.

Its currently 83 with a projected high in the low 90's. My house is sitting nicely at 68.

I also hate AC. But i occasionally rely on the 4 ton unit (which is the size of a small VW) in my back yard when it get's REALLY hot. LOL. I installed it 30 it years age with the help of a friend. It's never been serviced! I'm sure it will die soon.

STJ!

So now I have to buy a turkey (live) and a Futbol?

You are high maintenance.

I'm sure Walmart has Fubols. Gonna have to hit Craigslist for a live turkey.

It will have to wait until next payday.

I just bought a steam cleaner.

OMG, so much to do!

Your Monday Morning joke !

Bob walked into a sports bar around 5:58 pm. He sat down next to a very attractive blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV.
The 6 pm news was coming on. The news crew was covering the story of a man on the ledge of a large building preparing to jump.
The blonde looked at Bob and said, "Do you think he'll jump?" Bob said, "You know, I reckon he'll jump."
The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't."
Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, “You’re on!"
The blonde placed her money on the bar, and kept watching the scene on the telly.
The guy on the ledge did a swandive off the building, falling to his death.
The blonde was very upset, but handed her $20 to Bob. "Fair's fair. Here's your money."
Bob replied, "I can't take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 pm news, so I knew he would jump."
The blonde replied, "I did, too, but I didn't think he'd do it again."
Bob took the money.

Does time fly , already starting to think about fall. Seems like last week ken was waiting on the fields to dry...on another note i think my tractor girl is pissed at me , she tried to tell me a story of a turtle she hit with the bucket (soft shell turtle) and spent the rest of the day finding someone to save it. I cut her short and said you wasted the better part of a day for that! Have not heard a peep in four days. I guess the good side was i did hear that the turtle survived.

What time is it Class ????????

Yes my friends - It time for The Shelby Country Ag report !

The crops are moving right along ! Would not be surprised we are Shelling corn by Mid Sept - yes - that's early - some of the hotter ground around here may start just after labor day - Beans have been some good rain = should fill out the top pods on the beans plants = better BPA !


Had to stop by the Post office early this morning and a trailer load of baby pigs pulled up right next to me - Theres a BIG hog farm about 3 miles West of me - they just have Sows and when the baby pigs get around 20 or 30 pounds they ship them out to a finishing farm - someplace - they truck out a load every week ! On the picture - look threw the slates and you can see them in there - I was about 3 fee from them went I took the pic








Field day is next Thursday - 8/16 - so if you want to stop by - et me now so I can have enough lunch's prepared : )


Have a great Week !


Ken

Funny thing SD - There's really no smell with the little ones - Notice how clean the trailer is -- They clean them out and disinfect them every load - to control any disease issues - They even disinfect the tires on the truck and trailer right before they can enter the farm - Now on the other hand - The smell off the farm is a whole different subject - It can take the paint right off you truck ! Also good for removal of any nose hairs - lmao

Ken, are any of the hog farmers around you capturing and recycling the methane gas off the hop waste/slops to run diesel generators?

I saw this process once on Discovery channel- Farmers used large inflatable bubble over hog wash down waste pit, then collected and burned gas in diesels. Also, huge side benefit was to reduce smell released to surrounding area.

Here's one NatGeo link about process:

That is funny... i have a similar one but the opposite emotion. I was doing a internship at a large grower in the mid-west. We had to clear one of the houses due to some storm damage and it was a lot of transferring of items from one person to the next. One of the young ladies was mentally handicapped and she really thought i was Mr. wonderful. I spent most of the day passing flats of plants to her and with each hand-off she would gush , ooh and ahhh bat her eyes in such a childish manor , it was kinda sweet the first 15 minutes but by the end of the day i was over it. Under today's standards i think i would have a legal case #meeetoo

Here, it's 76 outside and wonderfully breezy with a few fluffy white clouds. What's this about needing AC's?

I looked up Minnesota's weather when I was researching C. Springs the other day. Looks like your summer temps are similar to ours (though we get cooler at night which helps our comfort levels tremendously), but your winters are WAY colder. So If I ever do get up your way, it won't be in the winter. Goes without saying.

@ Mel

The big difference is humidity. When I was a kid in the mid-west a 90 degree day came with 85%-95% humidity. Brutal. Very few cars or homes had AC. Here in Portland we never get that kind of humility in hot weather.

Today we will be in the 90's by late afternoon. The forecasted humidity at the hottest part of the day is 30%. Often on hot days it gets down to 20%, The difference in comfort level is incredible as you should know living in Colorado.

Denver (for example) should have a humidity of below 30% by mid afternoon.

In low humidity even in the high 90's it is easily tolerable (even enjoyable) if one stays out of the sun. Back in the day, to see my mother, aunts and grandmother hiking in the Montana mountains was a sight. Long khaki pants, wide straw hats and used mens cotton white dress shirts, wetted down bandanas on the necks. No sun anywhere on the body. It worked regardless of the heat. Kind of like the Bedouins in the desert. Of course, although you don't see it, you can still be sweating like crazy. So it is very important to keep hydrated. Pretty easy in these days of Gatorade and Smart Water.

STJ!

Lived in Florida my whole life......and have never spent much time around snow......really looks pretty though.....visited my husbands parents in West Virginia one time..and it was snowing just a few inches was on the ground.......was like 6 degrees....my husbands family ...they all sat at the dinner table and watched me get all geared up along with my 9 year old son ...........we were so excited about the snow.....no one else wanted to go outside????
yep my son and I was a layered up .....thick gloves ..waddled out the door like a couple of stiff humans.......I think my son and I lasted outside for about 6 minutes before we had little feeling in our hands ..not to mention the rest of our body.........LOL.....now I understand....

I grew up in Louisiana....yep, those lazy (hot humid) days of summer....no nostalgia from me for that. Come along about March, when we're still getting snow and cold, I do miss the green spring and azalea blooming season. But I'd flee back here as soon as the brutal stuff sets in.
