Re: “The 200th Victim

My father grew up in Pittsburg Pa. His friend's older brother born in 1918 got the flu as an infant. He survived, but was mentally retarded. The last I heard, he was still alive, and being taken care of by the family into the 1970's. I have no idea how much longer he lived, but a pandemic can make problems that go on for generations.
Please, do not help to spread this on.

Re: “North Coast Night Lights: Raptors at Chapmanā€™s Gem and Mineral

My one Chapman's story goes like this,...For 17 years I had lived in Humboldt County and had passed by the Museum without going in to see it. I finally did.
I was the only customer in the store. A most gracious lady was working that day. I purchased some rocks to justify the tour.
I left the place about 15 minutes to closing. As I walked over to my Honda GL500 Silverwing Motorcycle, a car pulled in and parked pointing outwards. The four passengers looked like felons. A cold chill went down my back. It was obvious they were waiting for me to leave.
I took the longest time to put on my leather chaps. Every zipper and snap was painfully slow. I could see the group was getting frustrated with my slow progress. Then came the leather jacket. And the helmet. They finally started their car and left. PHEW!
The door opened up and the lady stuck her head out and said, "I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart." I said, "No problem". John Norton

Re: “Hot Sauce is the Right Sauce

I love my two favorite hot sauces, Tabasco and Texas Pete. Hot without taste is just hot.
I just love the taste these two have.

Very nice story.

Re: “A Boozy Flavortown Meat Party

I have a "Surf & Turf" here in Georgia that would win the "Most Unusual" award.

Snapping Turtle and Venison Tenderloin.

Harriet Gray and I have a 115 acre farm here in Georgia, with two fish ponds and too many deer to count. We sell the cows, and eat the fish, turtles, and deer.

I do miss a lot of Old Town Eureka, but this farm life is great, John Norton

Best wishes to all in Humboldt County
