Re: Beautiful collection of mate cups at the Puerto de Frutos market, El Tigre Argentina. Mate is the national drink of Argentina, a type of tea

DrFumblefinger ·
Yes, those are gourds that are decorated (among the nicer ones we saw). You cal pick from all kinds of cups, though, ranging from cow horns to hooves to porcelain cups to whatever. Drinking mate is a social event, to be shared among friends. You never use more than one straw (everyone sips from the same) and saying "thank you" means you've finished. I'll have more on mate in the future, PM, as you might have guessed

Re: 'Elk Sensor' wins Swedish innovation prize

DrFumblefinger ·
Vehicle collisions with animals kill more people than dog, snake and bee bites combined. And while the photo you use shows an animal that weighs about 1000 pounds, that animal is a moose. I know it's tough for city folks to tell them apart. Here is what a bull elk looks like.... Here's what a cow elk looks like....

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Jan. 18, 2015: Darkness into Light

DrFumblefinger ·
Admittedly these cabins lacked the comforts of the white plantation owner's dwellings, but they are much nicer than many homes I have seen in my travels. I think here specifically of the huts made of cow dung and sticks in Tanzania as an example. I am also inclined to see the interior as a place of safety to those who lived in them, but understand your point and the metaphor.

Hi GarryRF and Travel Luver! GarryRF...loved your comment. LOL Too funny, and so true. Travel Luver...unfortunately I don't know too much about elk, but I did a little research and came across this article you can link to which I believe will answer your question nicely http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2...k-rut_n_3915764.html In summary, the answer to your question is yes, male elk (aka bulls) can be and usually are much more aggressive during rutting, even toward humans; However, after what I...
