Eucalyptus oil is a potent anti-flea agent.

It's like buhach. There is a neighborhoood west of Merced town called Buhach, named for the colony of farmers who set up to raise and ship the plants to Stockton on the RR.

Pyrethrin isnt a new discovery; its been used since the 1800s. The Buhach company states that pyrethrin is harmless to animals and humans, and is EPA-approved to eliminate pests such as fleas, roaches, lice, ants, spiders, and mosquitos. Its easily degraded by the stomach acids in mammals, so a human or pet would need to consume a huge amount to be affected, but pyrethrin is a potent neurotoxin for insects.

Enjoy the movie. It's loaded with lots of old Indian tricks.

All the Indian tricks donini knows must, y'know, kinda boggle the mind.

You let the posse chase you and Ill cut into the hills.

Gabby, were heading for Table Mtn. country. The rest of you go with Gabby to Gilroy. He knows all the Indian tricks.

Hes got better than an even chance. He knows all the Indian tricks. But I'm sayin' he's a-gonna die! And good riddance, the varmint."

"Youd better get back to Denver. Were heading for Durango country.

Ill take what I want. I know a lot of Indian tricks.

"It's you, Ray, not OUR way. It's an old Indian word. Ask Angela. She knows more about it. I sometimes call her Braddock for fun. She knows all the sneaky Indian tricks."

Sun Valley Serenade is a 1941 musical film starring Sonja Henie, John Payne, Glenn Miller, Milton Berle, and Lynn Bari. It features The Glenn Miller Orchestra as well as dancing by The Nicholas Brothers and Dorothy Dandridge, performing "Chattanooga Choo Choo", which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1996, and was awarded the first Gold Record for sales of 1.2 million.

When you hear the whistle blowin' eight to the bar
Then you know that Tennessee is not very far
Shuffle all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'
(Whoo whoo, Chattanooga, there you are)

A game of Risk, a bottle of slurp, and thee/thou, the two most-likely to succeed fellers from the hills I ever heard of.


zBrown can join in, but leave the muzzle on, it's not a blood game, tiger.



I want the pink pieces, please.

And do like Mr. Faver and Rowdy do on Rawhide,
Keep on rollin', rollin', rolin', movin', movin', movin'...

I've always loved the idea of:
The springtime in Kamchatka.
The summer in S. America.
The fall in Northern Europe.
And the winter in Sun Valley.

Some things to think about free of controversy, free of charge.
