RE: Mark, how soon new waggly tails?

& toward the end you must prove that you've still got very good eyes. My cataracts got demanding mid-cross continent trip, especially after dark. How much longer will you have this year's lambs? :B

The last pregnant ewe delivered twins. Congratulations. And the totals for 2017 are? :B

RE: Mark, how soon new waggly tails?

Sorry, I missed the 'dog on guard' post. Actually, when I drive by the near to me flock, I am used to seeing guard dogs lying down, but watching me. If I stop for a flock photo, they come over to the road and tell me to 'BEAT IT, NOW! Saved the great year's video of the lot of them. Thanks. :B

RE: Canada Day? Busy travel weekend?

Yes, scads of people go out and camp/rv on major holidays. Once upon a time in NB, I stopped into Briggs Yarn in Harvey Station, NB and purchased a sweaters worth of wool. This was October. I needed a place for my truck camper for the night. They called around. In that year there was a cg inside the municipality of Fredericton, but really on the edge of town. Most of it's customers were people who had jobs in that city and residences elsewhere in NB. The yarn place got me into that cg for the night. So, shop local, something you really want, and ask those locals the 'how to'. :C

RE: Mark, how soon new waggly tails?

Corn and lambs grow faster than grass grows or flocks change their minds. :C

Guarding the flock is a little different than I had pictured. :B

I like seeing Lee at work, of course. Do you have any video of Sam and Wendy or Sam or Wendy on duty? :B

Mark, how soon new waggly tails?

I saved a video called: "Lamb Feeding Time" on March 27, 2016." From the number and size of those 'little' ones, lamb birthing must have been pretty well finished. Any new lambing with there feet on the ground yet, Mark? :B

RE: Woodalls portal redirect?

Well, Woodalls has been nice for the layout and general friendly user options. Woodalls is still a flashing portal at the thread on alternate portals, but no recognizable url is shown. ???? per that. I can't get that thread url to take here. It's in the 3rd group of instructional threads for Forum Technical Support section. It would be nice for admin or this section moderator to give us an explanation that makes real sense. :C

RE: Border Crossing

Fall of 2015 US Border Guard for the Skagway entrance to AK treated me rudely for the first time ever in my 70+ years. I definitely felt he was instructed to be picky, that his manner had little to do with my background. My impression that US border guards are being instructed to be picky has increased since then. :C

RE: Getting rid of new pre seasoned Lodge crud

Find someone with a self-cleaning cycle on their oven. Put this pan in that oven turn it to the self cleaning cycle and follow instructions for that. Make sure to put your pan in the oven cool. & make sure to leave it in that oven after the self cleaning cycle until it is completely at room temperature. :C

RE: Greek salad

Feta cheese and ripe olives are the biggest difference I see in the Greek salads I get in my part of N Am. I've not been to Greece. Type of onion is not often grown in home gardens here. And feta cheese is a cube the size of that ripe olive. But I spent a good 2 months in Israel back in the 70s. When I was on the kibbutz each day we were given 1 tomato, 1/4 green pepper, 1/4 med. onion, and 1 4" (i.e. little type) cucumber and a bit of oil. This we diced ourselves. When I worked in the Kibbutz guest house, they diced the salad and added grated carrot just before meal time. A large bowl of this per table. It's been my fav salad ever since. :C

RE: Costs in Canada

Thread Starter. Let me CORRECT YOU! We have a bit over 35 million people. United States population: population, ... the United States of America is 325,642,556 as of Thursday, February 23, 2017, ... Canada Area: 9.985 million km² United States Area: 9.834 million km² 9.25 times Canadian payers to stock or supply 'needs/wants of almost the same area. That is, don't discount all of the supplying for that area with small population. It's called, in order to buy at world market prices, the individual Canadian MUST pay more than the USA resident. What I'd also like to be able to get statistics for is the number of kilometers of roads in Canada. I can easily think this way. I've had 3 travel jobs and on a personal scale I've driven from The Maritimes to Skagway, AK and back in about 2 months. Something over 18,000 km that trip. When you let yourself change your perspective like that, I'm sure you will see how your analysis is flawed and why. & to really whack you over the analytical head, the exchange rate for Canada vs. other world currencies change ALL THE TIME. I use Bank of Canada as my reference for major currency rate changes. Pretty authoritative that site, eh?!!! To go and say some one was wrong with their Exchange rate a week or so ago, forget it. It's not wrong, it just changed as it does all the time. & may I suggest that you come up and live in Canada for a year. In that time you can live in a different political space each month.....all 10 provinces and the 2 territories with roads. Or, lets add another factor. I think maybe 1/3 of those places of residence should be in more distant spots......Fort McMurray, AB, Wawa, ON, and Sydney, NS. Picking more central spots per political unit should be easy....except I will suggest Whitehorse, YT, Hay River, NWT just thinking of linkage roads. You can still select St. John's, NL, Charlottetown, PEI, Saint John, NB, Quebec City, QC, Winnepeg, MN, Saskatoon, SK, Vancouver, BC for your strongest comparisons with US places. I'm just trying to give you a bit of reality for the experience. So, please take your head out of US approach/experience only. Then go over and compare continental Europe, diverse African, Asian, South American and Australian places to work and live. "Needlessly expensive" is an irrelevant concept. ;)

RE: Would like to find used cast iron implements. Where?

Most of what I have I got through Ebay, thus it is older. For example, Wagner is 1890 or before. Wagner-Ware, thus, after that date. Get yourself into some source on the history of any brand you look at, then get yourself one item in the late 19th century or early 20th c., & you'll have something to compare to all you now shop for. Also, get yourself an online friend, one who is not buying stuff from your geographic area, and talk cast iron. Said friend will help you learn how to evaluate what you see in person and what you might buy at a distance. & the words I'd use for the local neighborhood family or community group offerings, is 'yard sales'. Enjoy the search. :C

RE: Dutch Oven size recommendation

A 13" will nest inside a 14". The walls of any Dutch oven are less than 1/4" thick, maybe even less than 1/8" The elbows that hold the thick wire that serves as a handle with the thick wire might be a total of 1/2". If that's the case, then then 12" is oven that will for sure nest inside a 14" oven. Go to your Lodge, Camp Chef or ebay pages for photos of new Dutch ovens. :C This is correct if they are the same depth. My 12"Lodge is somewhat shallow. My 10" Camp Chief is deeper, they don't nest well. Again I repeat my suggestion to check Cabelas for Dutch Oven carry bags. Feels like they have canvas outside, then foam, then canvas. Zipper around top to sides. By for 12", put bubble wrap inside that, bubble wrap inside the CC 10" and between 10" and top. My purchases of this product were done in 2008 and again in 2012, but not since. Into mover for my move from Newfoundland across The Gulf in 08. Flew to Oz from The Maritimes, via Vancouver to Sydney in '12. & I'd say that if Cabelas no longer carries the product, somebody else does. :C

RE: tour canada

My wife and I are considering touring southern Canada this summer. Anyone have advice? Class A motor home. Best time for us is mid-August to Labor day. Maybe start north of Montana and end at Niagara Falls? Anyone going that way we could join up with? Any advice welcome. To the Original Poster... Could you possibly come back and just make a post that you have read or seen replies to your post? :h I realize you are new here but just wondering if you posted and left or are still with us? May I add, I've read your 'mid August to Labour Day' & really taken that in Aug 15 - Aug 31 = 16 days Sept 1 - Sept 4 = 4 days. To be sure 20 days is better than 0 days, but it sure is a tease for this beautiful ....... :p
