Worker Killed After Falling Into Meat Blender

Worker Killed After Falling Into Meat Blender:  A 41-year-old man has died after falling into a running meat blender at an Oregon meat-processing plant which has been repeatedly cited for safety violations.  Gee, sort of makes you long for the good old days when inspectors were only finding things like traces of horse meat or rat dung in meat.  That said, plant managers are telling the public there’s really nothing to worry about and that as long as the meat is cooked at over 165 degrees, it should be just fine to eat.

World’s Oldest and Largest Ancient Wine Cellar:  Archaeologists say they’ve discovered a 3700-year-old wine cellar in northern Israel, making it the the oldest and largest ancient wine cellar ever to be unearthed.  In related news, Trader Joe’s announced they’ll be offering the wine at the special low price of $4.99 a bottle - beginning early next week.

Mummified Ice Age Wolf Pup Dug Up in Canada:  A rare complete mummified wolf pup - radiocarbon-dated to more than 50,000 years ago and preserved in its entirety, has been discovered by gold miners in Yukon territory.  Frankly, I’m actually more surprised to discover there are still gold miners in Yukon than I am to find wolves.  Hell, I thought they all died-off a hundred years ago.

Wine that is aged is darn good.

Out here in Oregon, ranchers with enormous herds of "free range" cattle that trample stream beds destroying fish habitat, whine like toddlers when a few of their tasty government subsidized meat bags get eaten by wolves. 

It's a strange thing to me that these business "pioneers" can't see they are the ones altering the natural order.

If you want to protect your livestock, buy a dog. They work. That’s what they were bred for.
