Hero Dog Protects 3 Year Old Lost Owner

Every Dog needs a boy.
Hero Dog Protects Young Lost Owner Until the Child Is Found by Police: ‘Give That Dog a Bone’

Buddy the dog stood on guard and helped police locate a missing 3-year-old boy who had wandered off into the woods on Tuesday, according to the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities were first made aware of the boy’s disappearance when his frantic mother called 911 and reported that the child, who had been playing outside with his siblings, was missing along with the family dog.

Officers and a K9 unit from Suwannee Correctional Institution then began searching for the missing boy until they received a call from a neighbor that the child had been found, though Buddy the dog was being very protective and wouldn’t let strangers near his human companion.

Humans could learn an important lesson from a small boys best friend.

Towns ban cars and trucks from city

York to have the UK’s first car-free city center after the council backed plans to ban private vehicles.

UK – York to end all “non-essential” car journeys inside its historic city walls within three years.

Bristol has announced plans to become the first UK city to ban diesel cars by next year.

London – high-polluting vehicles entering central London already face an extra £10 ($13.25 USD) levy on top of the £11.50 ($15.20 USD) daily congestion charge.

Barcelona’s car-free smart city experiment. There is virtually no traffic and the space where cars would have parked is given over to play areas, trees and even a running track.
Superblocks is a radical plan to reclaim the streets from the noise and pollution of traffic.
There are just six superblocks so far, but Barcelona plans hundreds of others. They are made up of nine existing blocks joined together into an area which bans all but essential vehicles which are limited to 10 kph (6mph). Parking for residents is underground.

This begs to ask, will UK and Spain’s cities soon mandate only electric powered vehicles and electric powered public transportation with in cities?
Will this spur US cities to vote in favor of similar vehicle bans?

2020 Gardening season is here

Happy 2020 Gardening Season

Judge rules ‘ duck’s have the right to ‘Quack’

Ducks have won: French court rules they may keep on quacking.
Ducks on a small French smallholding may carry on quacking, a French court ruled, rejecting a neighbor’s complaint that the birds’ racket was making their life a misery.

The complaint was brought by Douthe’s neighbor who moved from the city around a year ago into a property about 50 meters (yards) away from the enclosure in the Soustons district where Douthe keeps her flock.

City dwellers that move to the country side should be required to certify in writing that they understand poultry, waterfowl cows and goat bells are common sounds that occur when living in the country and city folk will not be allowed to disturb their neighbors life’s with lawsuits that may relate to life in the country or that may effect farmers lives.

Remember Maurice? A judge ruled a rooster named Maurice was allowed to continue his dawn crowing, despite complaints from neighbors who had also moved in from the city.

Abandoned and Orphaned – Give them a second chance

As we approach the holidays think of the many poor abandoned and orphaned Fruitcakes.

If someone forces a fruitcake through your letter box or abandons it on your door step. Sometimes you will find them hidden on dark shelf’s of pantries, lurking behind a jar of juice in the back of your refrigerator. They may be found well concealed in an Amazon, eBay or Walmart box marked ‘Christmas gifts.
While at work you may discover someone has abandoned a poor little Fruitcake and secretly placed it in your bottom right desk drawer, don’t despair.

If you have no place in your heart or home or desire to adopt and care for one of these abandoned or orphaned Fruitcakes post them as soon as possible to me at Town and Country Gardening blog.

I will give them a home, treat them with respect, feed them with a sprinkling of spice rum from time to time while waiting for them to mature. Fruitcakes will get the attention they deserve being displayed on my best silver platter as a special treat for my family, friends and special holiday guest.

About Texas Fruitcake I find serving large quantities of wine, brandy and whiskey before serving Collins street bakery Fruitcake makes my Fruitcake more appealing and it disappears quickly as my guest comment of the luxury taste and texture of my holiday Fruitcake.

FYI: I am in no way affiliated with nor do I receive free gifts or monetary compensation. from this bakery. I just like their fruitcakes.
Happy Holiday season

Why is Common Sense so Uncommon?

Right Tool for the job

Being willing to try something new using the latest improved technology, I bought one of the as seen on TV copper colored whizz bang no stick fry pan.
I carefully followed ‘all’ the instructions on how to clean and fry foods on this not so wonderful copper colored fry pan.
I even put away my trusty 25 year old steel spatula and replaced it with the recommended silicone spatula.

From day one eggs and sausage patties stuck to this pan much like they were fried using super glue on the pan. An almost new copper colored fry pan was sent to the trash bin. The lesson here is don’t buy any product advertised ‘As Seen On TV’ as one of it’s selling points.

Still in need of an 8 inch non-stick fry pan I made a trip to my local farm and ranch (farmers coop) store and for $8.97 bought a Lodge per-seasoned cast iron skillet. After washing drying and applying a thin coat of bacon fat to it’s surfaces I fried my frozen sausage patties followed by 2 over easy fried eggs. Yea, nothing was sticking to my cast iron pan.
As an added bonus this pan is perfect size for frying one real meat burger patty. I don’t eat or recommend that you eat some fake vegetable patty masquerading as meat burger patties.
Grin … without fire and protein from meats man would still be subsisting on grass seeds and grubbing in the dirt for plant roots and insect grubs.

FYI: I do like my new silicone spatula much better when turning eggs than my old steel spatula. No more broken egg yokes.

Happy Gardening and Healthy eating from your vegetable garden.
