Salmonella. If you vaccinate your chickens against Salmonella you can just keep them at room temperature with no significant risk. Some countries require by law that all their chickens need to vaccinated, the US doesn't.


Vaccines would only cover the last 200 years or less.

My guess is the increased distance between farm and table. When people kept there own chickens they were exposed to these pathogens on a routine basis giving them a natural immunity. The strains of those pathogens were also not as virulent as the ones today. A consequence of antibiotics and the sanatation practices required in factory farms has killed off the weeker varieties.

The most effective selective breeding program is any incomplete sanitation process.
Don't forget, "FREE" is a four letter word.

I remember exactly where I was when I heard
Elvis died, 40 years ago today. He was so
young, and a giant when I was growing up. It
really did feel like the end of an era.
August 16th, 1977.

Vegas was overrun with Elvis impersonators after he
died, but they were around before he died to. One
of the best, and the only one Elvis liked and approved
of, was Andy Kaufman. Here his is on Carson, it's an
amazing 6 min. He had E nailed down cold.

I'm having a great time watching the 60's
Xmas shows on Utube. We didn't have a
color TV in 1966, most people didn't. So
this is the first time seeing these in color
for me.

These shows are snapshots of life in the
60's, it really did exist, I was there. It's a
time I can't even imagine now, but it
was there. The innocence of it, the
family values.

It's worth watching this one just to see
the Osmond Brothers and Donnie Osmond
at 10 years old. No Marie yet..

Other than as a big monitor and watching fake news, I don't see a reason to have a TV, let alone cable. If it were up to me I wouldn't have cable TV. But my GF wants it. So I'm Paying $150 a month for my cable package that includes internet and security stuff. They include some dumb ass phone thing I don't even have hooked up. I could just buy a security system.



I'm sort of amazed so many people still have cable. It can be fun to surf the channels, which I still enjoy in hotels. But for what they charge you get almost nothing of value in return.

I'm not very tech savvy at all and I cut the chord at least 10 years ago.

We do because it is still convenient. We record everything and almost never watch live tv. We were going to get rid of cable but we pay $109 a month for cable and Internet. If we only had internet it would still cost about $60. So essentially we are paying $49 for cable. If we didn't have cable then we would probably have to have Netflix and maybe another service so really we are only losing $30. That seems pretty cheap for cable with 2 dvrs.

Cable has such weird shows:
Cat therapists, yacht maids, moonshiners, homesteaders (freaks fleeing society), endless home decorating and home renovation, crime replays by the zillions.
It seems people watch these things voluntarily.

Yeah that's what I mean. It's fun to check that stuff out maybe a few times per year. But paying even $600 a year is way too much.

We even canceled Netflix. No more movies or shows. For the most part IDGAF about their original content.

There is lots of good stuff on YouTube if you need to kill time. If you really want to see something else there is streaming and file sharing.
