Interesting!  Any particularly interesting breed?  Believe it or not, at least twice, I have bought wall calendars that were chicken-themed (photos of various breeds).  The photos were amazing!  Beautiful birds...and yes, er, they were in my kitchen!  Trust that your neighbor also has hens?  Hopefully they also share some fresh eggs with you?   :)

Best wishes,

PD

I have no idea.  I've heard it but not seen it. We're a townhouse community so if he wants a chicken coop he would need to keep it on his patio.

I'm guessing that arrangement could have its drawbacks.

Hmmm?  So, where then is he keeping the rooster I wonder?  :-\

Their endeavor may just be a gator pantry.

The lake is usually gator free, and across the street from us. So unless the chicken crosses the road...

There was a short-lived restaurant concept based (I think) in Teaneck, NJ, whose motto was "When in doubt, Chicken Out!"

My love for chicken is downright scary, I've been eating it at least five times week for twenty years.

lol LKB  Well, you never know.  :-X

O.k., and I mean this politely, you need to vary your diet more, non?  Perhaps some seafood and also some vegetarian meals?  The recipes/cookbooks these days are amazing (just saying)!  And not all of them take a lot of hands-on time too.   :)  Just a suggestion.

     The Dow hit 30,000 for the first time. It doesn't get more unimportant than that. Still, naming Janet Yellen to the Treasury post is doubleplus good. I'm expecting at least a mini-crash in late December or January and slow recovery thereafter. I won't see a full restoration of my titanic wealth in nominal terms until 2022.

A friend of mine claims that parts of the Danish stock markets are organized, fluctuations being mere temporary illusions and artificially created, say via false, non-verifiable rumours and organized buyings. In spite of the official rules prohibiting manipulations. It's a system that benefits the upper(most) elite, to maintain and expand its wealth, and maybe 1000 people are initiated and know it, the rest are senseless victims for the changes on an everyday basis.

But he says that he's broken some of the codes: there are predictable patterns and logarithms making it possible to predict fluctuations for parts of the stock market, that enjoy support or ownership by certain members of the old elite, typically large company formations, where some people are in many boards.

When certain combinations and sequences of numbers appear in the rate, it's a sign of the stocks having now reached either a low or a high point, and it will move/be moved either upwards or downwards. And the initiated investors know that. These numbers and sequences appear at certain times and are markers for the development. For example they could be 1-2-3-4, or reflect certain mathematical concepts in numbers.

He says that he recently scored 40% on one stock, and has given me names. He is not rich, but extremely savy, from mostly modest jobs. I'm not an investor though, at least so far. But he says that this information can actually also be found on the internet.

I wonder, if its true, whether it's just a local phenomenon, or it exists elsewhere. If he's right, it's probably very widespread.

     Knowledge of the existence of a formula for a secret stock market pattern would break the pattern if it was widely used. For specific stocks all kinds of nonsense can go on. I ignore it. I'm less interested in how other stock owners behave over the short run than how the real economy performs.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran's top nuclear scientist, assassinated near Tehran

Hey, it could have been a mugging. 

I wonder if this sets off WWIII, the way Suleimani's death was supposed to earlier this year, based on the hand-wringing in the press.
