Pet Chickens problem. My daughter got into hobby chickens.

There were originally four chickens named, General Tso, Nugget, Tender and Fil-a. (Really). No, they won't be eaten when they finish laying.

Anyway, she bought two more and there was trouble introducing them into the cage. Nugget and Tender get along with the new ones. Fil-a and General T fight with the new ones.. The general is the worse offender. He claws at them and pulls out their tail feathers.

My s-i-l demoted the general to Colonel. That hasn't helped. The colonel is now in solitary, in a pen that is next to the other five.

Any thoughts on how to stop the aggressive chicken?

My daughter's Democratic group.... They meet every couple of weeks. They got the list of Dem.

voters who didn't vote in 2016. They raised money for and sent applications for absentee ballots to those people.

How to win mid-terms? Ask Repubes about impeachment.

Dem. candidates are told not to mention impeachment or issue positive statements about it. But what about asking Repub. candidates what would warrant impeachment? If they answer, "Nothing.," publicize that.

If they answer, "Well, maybe........," that will weaken their position with the Trump base who believe nothing warrants the removal of Trump.

Frenchtown: Buildings on fire.

A truck carrying oil, crashed into buildings.

NJ Transit and pay

Star-Ledger today: Sweeney and other legislative leaders are planning on legislation to reduce public employee pension and health benefits. In the same issue, we are told that massive delays in N.J. transit are because engineers are leaving for other railroads that offer better pay.

Teaching has become one of the shittiest jobs because of paper work, shooting drills and actual shootings, testing, testing and more testing. Experienced teachers look forward to retirement. New teachers burn out and look for opportunities to find new jobs. Their pensions will also be reduced.

The complaint is that only teachers with lowest college grades go into teaching.

Christie already reduced pension benefits 11 years ago.

Does anyone see a connection?

Delaware County -- why the late returns?

Delaware and Franklin counties were the last to submit returns. I believe, an hour or so after the other counties had submitted their tallies.

Franklin has the largest population. Maybe that figures into the delay.

But why Delaware? But then when the Delaware total was in, the spread between the candidates seems wider than it had been than earlier in the evening.

Thoughts?

The Orange Diapered Baby is coming to N.J.

A G.F.M. raised the funds to bring it over for a visit.

I guess it will greet him outside the Bedminster golf course. I plan to be there. Date not announced.

So I expanded my trip. I got 2 days in Escalante, 2 in Zion and 2 in Moab.

I am likely to book a couple of tours. I have suggestions for Escalante. Any thoughts or suggestions for the other two?


Things to look out for, safety wise, besides bring water?


I am 75 y.o. So I decided to take as many long trips as I can, while I still can.

2019 is Labrador.
2020 is Arizona, N.M.
2021 is Trans-Canada highway.

2024 is the total eclipse.

I booked lodging in Escalante for Labor Day Weekend.

Any suggestions for what to do in the area? I am mostly interested in landscape.

I was thinking of Arches Ntl. Park as part of the trip.

I will be driving from N.J.
