Hobbie's Comments

Vermont is known as the best source for Maple syrup and sugar, but it is made wherever you find great forests of maple trees,and northern Ohio has plenty of them. My daDDy he grew up around here in a liddle village called Bascom about five miles to the west. When he wuz thirteen he werked in January and February in one of those maple woods just north of the village for a family named Feindel, who sugared. Most of the families around Bascom had and still have German last names. I think they brought the skill of sugaring from Germany when their ancestors moved here in the 1830s and used oxen and drag lines to drain the Black Swanp, which is where Bascom was located. There isn't any swamp there now,of course,but they planted maple trees everywhere. The original native trees survive. They are basswood,hickory, red oak, white oak and what my daDDy calls "Piss Elm." Anyway, my daDDy he had the job of going from tree to tree wif a bucket and gathering the sap that had flowed out of the bark cuttings and carrying the heavy buckets to the sugaring shed in the cold and snowy woods. For every 2 gallon bucket he got 20 cents. One day he made two dollars and forty cents! He thinks he spended it all on Pepsi and comic books.

Two different paintings. Differences in size, contrast, color and more. Both sold but the bottom one hasn't been paid for yet.

Whoever came to the conclusion that an untestable species was "smarter" than another that cannot complete that test needs at be tested himself. I have owned both species and can affirm that most cats seem to have a higher level of intelligence than even some humans.

My cats have been absolutely frightened the last couple nights. Social retards in the neighborhood are setting off bombs and it is illegal here, but the cops never come.
Five years ago someone used the trunk lid of my car out back to set off bottle rockets and squealers. It cost my car insurance company over a thousand dollars to pay for the damage to be repaired and painted.
