    The McKenzie Valley wolves that were imported to Idaho routinely kill Great Pyrenees guard dogs. Four or 5 Great Pyrenees are no match for 2 or 3 wolves.

    If he was really good it would have been an acorn.

    Read the article on the BBC about the genomic study of prehistoric Europeans. It is interesting. There are three “tribes” that make up the most of our ancestors, but there is a bit of Asian tossed in too. The fact is that everyone has grandparents in common somewhere in the past, so we are all related.

    Everyone is a direct descendent of royalty, for it is statistically impossible not to be related to royalty. The simple fact is that everyone has a common, direct line grandparent somewhere in the past. The world population was about 400 million in 1,000 AD and, using 25 years per generation rather than 20 years, you would have over 137 BILLION grandparents at that time. At 20 years the 137 billion would be in the trillions. So, somewhere back there my cousin, we have a common set of grandparents…who lead to thousands more common grandparents.

    Now she will nag him to bring in more firewood; complain about the bark making a mess and urge him to clean the fire pit.

    Those born in 1950 have 137,438,953,472 (137+billion) direct line grandparents in the year 1,000 AD if no cousins ever married and generations were 25 years apart. It is likely that 25 years is too long so that number is probably much larger. The estimated total world population in 1,000 AD was 400 million. So we are all related in one way or another.

    All my cousin in Salt Lake has done over the last 30 years is search family history. She found one line that someone else had done that went clear back to 850 AD. Prior to about 1500 AD only royalty had sir names so everyone on it was a member of a royal family. Everyone with any European ancestry has the same background so we are all related.

    In 30 generations, without cousin marrying cousins, you would have 536,870,912 direct line grandparents. To have just 1,000,000, there would have been lots of cousins getting married.

    I lost my doctor because of the ACA.

    My friend is probably going to shut their small, family business down after 60 years because the insurance they had provided “is not approved”. To purchase approved insurance would put them in the red.

    There is no such thing as a “bullet proof vest”. They are soft body armor. All of them can be penetrated by most bullets under certain circumstances.
