Thanks Slim and to Major2 for the non spoiler ;D



Yesterday was the first official day of fall- it was 92 here and drier than a popcorn phart. There has been a wildfire between here and the Georgia line. (Atlanta is a 2 hour drive).  Over the weekend.  A little cooler in mornings but heats right back up.

Talked to my old cowboss in Virginia yesterday.  Had a good visit with him.

Not much else to report.

Always get the water for the coffee upstream from the herd.

Little  brown dog likes flour tortillas, had a couple left over and gave him one, took it, tossed it around, grabbed it and headed downstairs to show Rita, tortilla flapping in the breeze.

I forgot how much fun puppies are, waiting for the first snow.

We have a cat that likes tortillas also, just not whole ones. He will also lick the tomato salsa and hot sauce up.
However you think a pup is fun? Try having one that is completely deaf and blind in one eye. It is like rearranging Hellen Keller?s furniture twice a day.

Morning Coffee is up - and at 5am it might be cooled off by time ya?ll get going.

Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

Eau Claire is close to where I used to live '78-'82. Eau Claire means clear water in French.

'Tis 60 and cloudy. Fog in the creek bed. High of 70.

Stopped at the store after PT, got some stuff, went to dollar aisle, found 8 shot, break top snubnose and picked up 96 speed loaders also.  Brought it home, loaded it, little brown dog thought it was ok.

Need to get some percussion caps for 58 Remmy next and check on if I can still find smokeless blank data for 28 ga.  Can always use a little black.

FIRE ALERT ISSUED FOR ALABAMA: The Alabama Forestry Commission has upgraded the recent Fire Danger Advisory to a statewide Fire Alert effective immediately. While under a Fire Alert, permits for outdoor burning will be restricted and issued on an individual basis at the discretion of the State Forester. This burning restriction is being issued because of the current drought situation, continued lack of precipitation, and high probability of fuel ignition. With this extremely dry weather, conditions are such that any fire can quickly spread

I have a pile of brush to burn off- continue waiting now

I have family there.

55 and overcast in Billings. Forecast for blizzards over the weekend.

They say at least 2 weeks out before a freeze here, that's about what is needed to get the corn and beans that were late mature enough to harvest. 

Hoping rain and snow hold off also.

Snow should hurt the corn unless it is 4 foot deep.

As wet as things are a wet snow or rain would make running a combine impossible till it froze hard.  Corn is at 5% done and almost no beans yet, more beans than normal because they lost the window on corn, some beans weren't planted till late June.

Yup , the weather has gone wacky ( scientifical term)

There are STILL tropical storms in the Gulf and the Pacific off the Baja. It looks like the Great Southwest may get classic El Nino
weather this winter ( ie huge snow dumps) even tho the classic conditions are not quite there for it.

SE Asia, Japan and Korea are getting hit with a record number of typhoons. Japan is experiencing the worst flooding and mudslides
since the March 2011 Tsunami.

Looks like mebbe corn and bean futures and going to be crazy. Also pork, since Japan and China are losing their
pigs to swine fever and since China lost HALF their pigs nationwide China is tapping it's "national reserves" . 
I did not know that some countries maintain "strategic reserves" of food!
It actually seems like a smart thing to do.

Oh look, Korea has swine fever now too. I wonder how it spreads?

"The virus is then easily spread between pigs by direct contact with an infected animal, its body fluids (nasal, oral, feces, blood) or tissues (meat), or indirectly from contact with contaminated objects (fomites), such as vehicles, equipment, footwear or clothing."

"Classical swine fever or hog cholera (also sometimes called pig plague based on the German word Schweinepest)
Clinical signs
       Swine fever causes fever, skin lesions, convulsions, and usually (particularly in young animals) death within 15 days.
       The signs are indistinguishable from those of African swine fever.
Immunization
       A small fraction of the infected pigs may survive and are rendered immune. Artificial immunization procedures were first
      developed by Marion Dorset."

The Merck manual has lotsa info!
       https://www.merckvetmanual.com/generalized-conditions/classical-swine-fever/overview-of-classical-swine-fever
" Classical swine fever is a contagious, often fatal, disease of pigs clinically characterized by high body temperature, lethargy, yellowish diarrhea, vomiting, and a purple skin discoloration of the ears, lower abdomen, and legs. It was first described in the early 19th century in the USA. Later, a condition in Europe termed ?swine fever? was recognized to be the same disease. Both names continue to be used, although in most of the world the disease is now called classical swine fever (CSF) to distinguish it from African swine fever (see African Swine Fever), which is a clinically indistinguishable disease but caused by an unrelated DNA virus."

Japan is going the immunization via vaccine route.

China is just slaughtering and ( hopefully) destroying.

But China has been known to put diseased and rotting meat and fish into the marketplace and often tries to sell it on the
 international market. The inspectors at the Ports regularly reject entire shipments of diseased/rotting meat and fish from China.
