Friday Fictioneers - Animal Instincts

Eric Valois hadn’t seen or heard from the man in over a month. Truth was he’d felt uneasy about selling one of his young truffle pigs to someone he didn’t know, but the man’s enthusiasm and confidence had helped to put Eric’s mind at ease – as did the price he received. 69 more words

Bloody Mary and the map monster

It has often been queried by historians, proper historians that is, with degrees and everything, why Mary I had such a desire to kill. Her nick name, given to her after her death, was Bloody Mary and that was not because of the heaviness of her menses! 1,314 more words

Pune has always been an escape, a city with beautiful culture, a gorgeous skyline and tremendously yummy food. Did you cringe at the word ‘yummy’? Alas, that’s what the cuisine of this city is, yummy, it’s goodness and scrumptious flavor all wrapped up in a single dish. 464 more words

Excellent article on Jen Codaro, otherwise known as "Jen the Archer." For those who don't understand hunters, hunting or why we hunt, this is a great insight and a story; one that fits most hunters I know. I love animals and have the utmost respect for them. I love to hunt/fish...eat what I harvest. Many people I know can't wrap their minds around the two. No Hunting. No Conservation. No Wildlife. "When I decided I wanted to take a wild hog with a bow, I didn’t know where to go, who to see, how to find out what I needed to do to hunt a wild pig, or what I should learn about shooting a bow. I never had owned or shot a bow in my life, and I possessed all the reasons for not becoming a bowhunter. However, taking a wild hog with a bow was a dream of mine. I was conflicted, because I basically was a city girl. I didn’t have any friends who hunted. I had all the stereotypical reasons for my subconscious to tell me this was something I couldn’t do, even though it was something I wanted to do." "I learned after harvesting game, field dressing it, cutting up the meat, and then eating it that I had a much-closer connection to the food I was eating than I did when I ate a hamburger at McDonald’s and believed that the hamburger came from the grocery store and nowhere else." - Jen Cordaro
