Wild Turkeys ~ JCRW Lunch ~ Smokin' Bobo? ~ Grilled Cheese Day

Good 32º foggy/cloudy morning.

Yesterday.... clouds laying low down over Evans Creek....

Still mating season with the Wild Texas Turkeys....

Wild turkeys are not native to Oregon but were first successfully introduced in 1961. Since then more than 10,000 turkeys have been transplanted to locations all over Oregon.

Two turkey subspecies have been introduced here. The Merriam's wild turkey was the first subspecies released in the state. Live-trapped Merriam's turkeys were brought to Oregon from Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nebraska and Montana. The Merriam's subspecies is native to mountainous woodland habitats from the southwestern United States to Central Colorado. The Merriam's turkey population in Oregon increased rapidly following initial releases and then stabilized at lower population levels after the initial expansion.

The Rio Grande wild turkey was first introduced to southwestern Oregon in 1975. Rio Grande turkeys are native to stream-side zones and scrub woodlands from the southern Great Plains southward into northeastern Mexico. In Oregon, this subspecies has since been established throughout the state and has proven adaptable to a surprisingly wide range of habitat types. Because of this, management efforts have focused primarily on this subspecies since the early 1980's.

Yesterday was the JCRW luncheon. Activist Holly Swanson. "From Holly’s New Book: “The Education for Sustainability movement is drastically altering the curriculum in our schools. It has changed the role of public Education and imposed a political agenda on our children. Stopping
the misuse of public education to indoctrinate our children is one of the most important issues of our time.
Holly is a leading authority on the political agenda of the education for sustainability movement. She is a national speaker; frequent guest on regional and national talk radio. Holly lives in the Rogue Valley with her husband CW."

Lunch was GREAT..... ribs that had a hoisin flavor... yumm! and Asian noodles, veggies, salad, their awesome bread, and chocolate mousse! OINK!~
(Hoisin sauce, also called Chinese barbecue sauce is a fragrant, pungent sauce used frequently in Asian stir-fries and marinades and Asian-style grilled dishes and grilled broccoli tossed with hoisin sauce. Made from a combination of fermented soy, garlic, vinegar, and usually chilis and sweetener, hoisin is dark in color and thick in consistency. It has a very strong salty and slightly sweet flavor)


After I wrote on my blog yesterday about "other words" for marijuana... a few more slang words were told to me by my son.... "420, chiva, (and old one I forgot...) roach, and the funniest... bobo" !!!!! Whaaaaaaaaaaa???????????? Weird. So, if you are "smokin' bobo" you are not talking about me!
