Linda,


That is so-o-o right!!!  We have "normal" time 4 out of our 12 months of the year.  The rest of the year is just another artificial enhancement which removes us from the normal and natural rhythms.  Why even bother changing clocks now, just leave them at daylight savings time all year.

I agree!
And I've read that this stupidity is NOT saving us any money whatsoever. What is the point?

Jan,


There actually ARE recipes on line for this.  You do have to catch, skin and gut them unless you have a local butcher to do this for you.  I guess the bottom line is "how hungry are you?????"  I want to barf at the thought, but then again, I am a spoiled American.   ;D

Barbara,
Being a true carnivore/omnivore, I can't imagine hunting and gathering one myself! Although there are many people in the upper keys who do hunt and feast on them, saying the meat is tender and quite delicious. Probably similar in taste and texture to alligator, which I've never tried either. The population of iguana has exploded down here over the past 7 years and they're becoming quite a nuisance (one hangs out where I park my bike and consistently startles and scares me every time!)......wouldn't 't be a bit surprised to see them on menus in the future.

Jan,


Keep us posted about menu items!
Any reason given why the iguana population is exploding?  What do they eat?


I sure wish New Jersey would allow more deer hunts.  They have devastated our forests, eaten our landscaping bushes and most undergrowth plants.  With no undergrowth, the trees and bushes are stressed by weather since the soil dries out and doesn't hold the rain water well.  Despite the unusually cold and snowy winter, they are robust looking and the herds are thriving.  I've cooked venison many times and it is delicious.

Iguana's aren't indigenous to Florida, nor are the Burmese pythons (which have managed to adapt to swimming in saltwater long enough to get here too!) originally thought to be released pets and/or escapees from breeding facilities during hurricane Katrina.....it's taken a few years to migrate down here....now you see a few each day.....we've had them in the pool and yard. They eat all the flowers and can clean a bush in no time. We now have businesses that will come and get them out of your yard......but then others just move in.


Here's our most recent critter.....he (or she) is over two feet long.

My sympathies.


Even planters aren't safe for flowers or veggies.  I used to plant about 500 annuals around the property during the warm weather.  There was always a spot of color everywhere you looked.  Just beautiful enhancement of the perennials.  The property was so pretty and smelled wonderful that people used to stop and compliment me. 


Each year, the perennials disappeared even with application of natural pest repellants.  Fewer annuals planted.  No vegetables at all with the actual vegetable and plant demolished.  A few annuals that the deer, rabbits, raccoons and groundhogs don't usually eat were planted.  Doesn't matter since they ate them anyway, although  a bit later in the season.  Trapping, poisoned food, special fencing, flashing lights and other manmade deterrents  worked for a short while.  I gave up.  Wildlife is just smarter than I am.

Some of the drugs actually do work.  Most of the excess prescriptions is caused by the doctors' not having a clue about how to help you get well, so they prescribe anything and everything a drug company will offer even if it doesn't help the condition.  The doctor can say he/she followed protocol and so you have a minimal chance at suing them for incompetence.  How many times have you walked out of a doctors office with a handful of scripts for meds and tests? 


Too often the multiple drugs are taken by elderly and no doctor will take them off even when a bagful of meds is clearly not helping.  It is very common to see 10 - 20 medications taken daily and no one ever gets any better.  Sad commentary about our wonderful country held hostage by big ag and big pharma.

For sure...................


The only physician I visit regularly is my opthamologist and they routinely ask what I take regularly. When I tell them I am taking just one prescription, they always seem to do a double-take.  Really?  Just one?  It feels very good to be in the minority on this issue. [I hope to keep it this way for a long, long time.]
