Got this from one of my Brothers -
A Farmer's story -


I recently spent $6500 on a registered Black Angus Bull, but when I put him with the other cows, he completely ignored the females. I began to worry I had paid too much, so I called the Vet and he told me the bull was very healthy and gave me some pills he said should help.

The bull started to service the cows within 2 days and then broke thru the fence and serviced my neighbor's cows, too. He's a real stud machine now.

Still don't know what was in those pills, but they taste like peppermint!

I was stationed at Ft. Devens, MA from 1977 to 1980. The Intell School was closed due to the Blizzard of '78, so we all piled in the car and drove west to Railroad Salvage, a general merchandise clearance house for all kinds of things. We were driving back with around 70 miles to get back to Ft. Devens when we learned the Governor had shut down the roads as a safety measure. We always liked to go to Railroad Salvage since they carried a very eclectic mix of stuff. We bought our 4 year-old son a Star Trek-themed Hot Wheels-type bike and all of the other kids wanted to ride it. He was definitely King of the Playground for several months. I also bought several CB radios during the shift from 23 to 40 channel units.

From a former co-worker -

Dead Crows

Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found
over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, and there
was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.

A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows,
and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was
definitely NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be
vehicular impacts.

However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that
varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and
claws.

By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98%
of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while
only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.

MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist (😳) to determine if
there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of
truck kills versus car kills.

He very quickly concluded the cause: When crows eat road
kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree to
warn of impending danger.

They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout
"Cah!," not a single one could shout "Truck!"
