I certainly wish I was in a position to visit with all the wonderful people I have met here on Roy's HTGT site !

I do like pickled herring, am unsure about the eels, and have never tried lutefisk !

"lutfisk" is something the Norwegians do. Dried cod that they soak in soap water. I have heard of it, but never tasted it and I dont think I ever will. Hopefully.
Eels are really good, the best fish actually. My favourite. But they are getting rare and I have only managed to catch 3 this year.

Yes, I know the difference between Swedes and Norwegians ! lol

Yet, from where I sit, Scandinavia pretty much all the same...

Well, perhaps excepting the Suomi... they are Very close to the Rus ! lol

Yes, I know there is historic issues with them...

Geo-politics... What a mess.

And we got this cross between a circus and a train wreck going on here...

More people should simply sit down together and enjoy a homegrown cigar.

Trial related to Malhuer National Wildlife Refuge

Appropriate credit to Don Ryan/AP
"When jury deliberations began last month in trial for Ammon Bundy and six others charged in the armed takeover of Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a guilty verdict seemed all but certain. Even defense attorneys admitted they were pessimistic.

“You don’t walk into a federal court and win a case like this,” Matthew Schindler, an attorney for one defendant, told the Seattle Times. “It just doesn’t happen.”

But jurors came back with a stunning decision: after deliberating for five days, they had found all the defendants not guilty of conspiracy to impede federal officers, the core charge in the case.

As Bundy and his compatriots walked free, critics of the armed standoff were left scratching their heads."

Of course there is much more to this story and I would advise everyone to investigate further.

Thanks for the info Rustycase. I read a lot about what was happening at the Malheur wildlife site but I missed that new info. I'll look into it ! I am also following what is going on in North Dakota and the election circus, of course !

The Fed owns/controls a very large percentage of the land in western states... many people are very opinionated about that.

This video was presented by an action group quite a few years ago. Nothing has changed.

I have personally seen activity such as this happen to folks I know.

Sad.

That is sad.
And the villain smokes a cigar, a very popular concept in hollywood. We need more hero types to smoke cigars on the silver screen,
to turn that image around. To stop it being portrayed as an aggressive or smug act.
Small chance of that happening though...

I sure wish I could have found a Horex like the one VonDutch is sitting on above, yet a scooter should be fun, too !

Image


I gathered a broken Vespa from the local Craigslist and hope to get it operating soon.
Should be fun for summer !
