    Back to fish. I was in my local supermarket the other day at the fish counter. Someone from one of the local restaurants was there too. I was buying tilapia and she said they didn't buy tilapia anymore since they "knew" things about it. She then proceeded to buy Pangasius that said right on the label "product of Vietnam". Wish I had read this article before I saw her. I bought the pangasius myself a while back and really didn't like it.

    Alot of the tilapia is farmed here in the USA some of it indoors. I used to keep a few specimens in my tank. They would breed like crazy then try to eat all their young, some would bite my hand when I tried to clean the tank when they were guarding their young.

    Also catfish are the garbage can fish that eat off the bottom ... bottom feeders. In fish tanks, you keep a catfish or two to help keep the tank clean. They eat the "refuse" that drops to the bottom of the tank. Even as a kid, I recall the catfish, caught in our local river and ponds, tasted a little bit like mud because they are bottom feeders.
    Gerry if you were at my cabin down by the river I'd treat you to some fresh Sulphur River Channel Catfish, hush puppies, french fries er freedom fries, and homemade onion rings. I promise you would change your opinion about catfish. Dang got to go grease is hot and ready.

    Good Lord Tim! You don't need to worry about the toxins in your fish! The fried foods will git ya first!

    last night I cooked some wild caught (frozen) halibut. It was pricey but worth every dollar. You can have your tilapia, Swai or whatever

    Grew up eating channel cats out of the resaca (spanish for bayou which I think is french for resaca) behind my house. We also swam and water skied in the same resaca and no one seems to have suffered any ill effects (except possibly the occasional twitch or nonsensical outburst ).

    Next time you fry some channel cats, try some of this. Their Bayou Glaze or Cocktail sauce is the way to go! Boiled some fresh shrimp the other day and dipped it in their Remoulade. Can't wait to try their Spanish Moss white BBQ sauce on some ribs.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

Let's see what happens down the road as more and more people are becoming intolerant of wheat and corn? I LOVE farmers' markets and rely on them. Of course there are people and businesses there that are not into local, just trying another retail outlet. But check around and it becomes pretty clear who is excited about their meats and produce!
    Mining today is actually quite healthy provided the rules are followed, the lack of oxygen at that altitude over time with that level of exertion is a health risk.

    I don't have a problem with the seed patenting, there is a very large expense getting there. The forever thing is different & the ability (decided by the courts) of Monsanto to go after overspray onto others property are areas for disagreement with what they do. I remember the days of nubbins in the dry years, don't happen today much.

    I think many are intolerant of various things due to the lifestyle led today. I think the over emphasis on cleanliness makes a lot of children unable to weather any setback. It's an issue that deserves it's own thread . Allergies in people & dogs!!!!!!!

    I understand a lot of people enjoy escaping from the icy winds and heavy snows of the north. Well, we ducks also look forward to flying south for the winter.
    Like our friends the great Canadian geese, we fly in a V shape; how high is anybody’s guess. But rest assured, we always try to fly out of the range of those hunters who bang away at us from their blinds.
    It was last fall, a little later than usual, that about a hundred of us took off from some lakes in northern Michigan and headed south. Although the sky was crystal clear, it was definitely cold. We were glad to be leaving the pond and what was left of some rushes.
    Food was really getting scarce. We took off shortly before dawn. It seemed to me there was an unnecessary amount of quacking. Being the leader, I told everybody to hold it down; we could all celebrate when we finally got to Mexico, or, better yet, Central America.
    The earth looked cold and just as bare as it did the year before. There were only vestiges of cornstalks, stubble or alfalfa and the trees were bare. A very heavy frost covered the ground , making it look as if there were almost an inch of snow on the ground.
    We crossed over a wide and very long river, probably the Ohio. When we had been flying at least three hours, I spotted a fair-sized pond in what I had to believe was northern Kentucky. I headed in first, as I was the leader, I was about fifty feet off the water when I heard a loud bang. That’s all, but it was over just like that. I fell like rock into the icy waters below. If there were other shots, I didn’t hear them
    The next thing I knew, I was staring into the eyes of a black Labrador retriever. He was coming to pick me up. Ever been in a dog’s mouth? Interestingly enough, they’re rather gentle. They know you’re dead so they don’t hurt you. I was still barely alive when this big black head moved toward me with a wide-open mouth.
    Just before he clamped down on me, I told him I was not just an ordinary duck. I was a red-headed canvasback, all right, but I was a “fish eater.” He stopped dead in his tracks, slammed on the brakes (hard to do in deep water), gave me a wink and circled back to the duck blind. He saved himself some extra paddling, but missed out on a big pat on the head.
    Me, I died, all right, but with dignity. Sure, I got shot down. I don’t care what anybody says, In the long run it pays to eat fish.
