Follow the money. “Today, the orange butterfly is on so many packaged items that it actually takes a conscious effort to avoid buying those “verified” foods, so of course sales of products with the verification are rising.”

If this were Montana, there would be a warning to be on the lookout for bears chowing down on the potatoes. Do they spontaneously ferment into vodka? Because that time they spilled a couple train cars full of corn and it fermented and the bears were drunk was pretty interesting.

Anybody who believes that myth about the overly polite Canadians has never shared a road with a bunch of Albertans headed south for the weekend.

Take note writers. You need to understand this if you're including characters whose roots are in these regions in your stories.

Good for your local farmer, not so much for the rest of us who are producing on a larger scale for people who can't access locally grown food.

I stumbled across this while bringing Vegas in from the pasture, only a couple of days after comparing notes with a friend on all the things we’ve lost out on the range. Fencing tools. Sunglasses. Thermoses. Calf…

No. Locally raised is not a large scale solution, especially when the shortage of USDA certified butcher shops means getting one steer processed requires getting on a waiting list. And it does nothing for people who are financially limited to shopping in their nearest store.

Will you as consumers see any benefit from this reduced purchase price? Hah. Watch the price of hamburger in the store. If anything it will go up in the next couple of weeks in anticipation of Labor Day weekend grilling.

EVERY MAJOR MEAT PACKER. Which are owned by a disturbingly small number of companies, who of course are not colluding (eyeroll), so there's nothing we as producers can do except tighten our rhetorical belts...again.

Even though the fire has had zero effect on the cost of production for the other packers, they have used it as an excuse to double their profit margin at the expense of everyone else in the supply chain.

Quick tutorial on ranch finances: a fire has temporarily shut down a large Tyson beef packing plant. In response--knowing there's a temporary backlog of feeder cattle--all of the other meat packers have dropped the price they're paying, which drops the price of our calves.

My favorite authors have almost all written books I didn't love. I have no problem with someone expressing a negative opinion in a review. We expect it and can chose not to read those. I just can't imagine writing a personal note to do the same.

Last Chance Rodeo is different in tone and structure. More of a family drama, a little less romance, and told solely from the male POV. Some readers love it the best and wish the rest were more like it. Others are the opposite. As a picky reader myself, I respect that.

Hank is gorgeous, and rightly so. Peppy San Badger, Dual Pep, etc., etc.

I love that book, so no worries on that point. I just can't imagine writing a letter like that to a complete stranger whose work I admire. It feels more like the sort of thing only a so-called friend or family member would say. *insert eyeroll*

I desperately want a book centered around an Indian relay team. Mystery, suspense, romance, paranormal, sports drama--I'll take any of 'em. And if anyone out there on wants to write it, I'll be happy to provide any mentoring you'd like. Seriously.

After a cautionary trip to the vet yesterday, the official word on Hank is a small abscess on the bulb of his heel. He’s not lame since it was drained but he’s getting antibiotics and a couple more weeks of rest…
