Wildlife Pic of the Day

How I feel about most bullshit political commercials, analysis and appeals for funds during peak electoral cycles. Yes, I recognize the threat from fascist-minded Republicans-in-name-only. Relying on chickenshit Democrats to function as our constitutional saviors isn’t reassuring.

Just to poke my friends and communicants who prefer the sectarian side of my nature, I must add that anyone standing to the Left side of this species is legitimate as far as I’m concerned if they are willing to act upon their convictions. Talking a good game doesn’t count in chess, firearms or making an omelette.

    Locusts, like many insects, are an excellent source of protein. According to the book “Insects” by Steve Parker (1997), species of locusts vary in protein content from about 50 percent of dry weight to almost 60 percent, making them denser in protein than cows.
    When roasted without seasoning locusts taste a bit like smoky bacon.
