Re: Salt

So important is salt that it was used as currency way back when.
Feed store salt for $5 per 100lbs? Not where I've been. I will be looking when I go to the big city though.

Does it need to be ordered from them direct? Although I haven't looked for it, I haven't noticed it out anywhere.

Re: Need help deciding on a new pocket pistol

My Sig 232 is too big for pocket carry. It's either going to be a Colt 1903 or S&W 642. The 642 fits my Wrangler pocket better that the 1903. I do not have a pocket holster for either as yet.

Checked both hives out today. It was a surprising 47 degrees here today. Too windy to open hives, but I did anyway. One hive is teeming with bees, in the brood box, and the upper box. The other has few bees in the upper box, although it's still heavy with full foundation. Really a sharp contrast to ...
