I remembered the source I referenced- had a bookmark at the page. Ruark's Horn of the Hunter. I'll take the liberty of using an excerpt from the book. IMO, Ruark's writing skill was on par with Hemingway and Capstick.Since this thread is completely off the proverbial chain and I am completely ignorant of tsetse flies. Would a therma cell work?
I was wondering about that? In photos of Teddy Roosevelt's big Safari, there are a lot of horses present. I guess they were hunting in Africa's dead of winter so the tsetse flies weren't an issue?In regards to tsetse flies. It is worth mentioning that they do serve hunting in a very important role.... They help big time in keeping wild areas, wild. They kill cattle (and dogs) through the transmission of sleeping sickness. People can get it too...
Thus the tsetse fly is largely responsible for the existence of the big wild hunting areas of Countries such as Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, etc.

Don’t salted mares also pass on immunity to the offspring , seems to me I read that in on of my equine books.Horses that are used in tsetse fly area are considered "salted", meaning they have lived through sleeping sickness and aren't susceptible to the fly bite. Kind of like the wild animals that live in the fly area.
When I was a kid, salted horses had a value that was multiples of a non-salted horse.
Speaking of using Avon's "Skin So Soft", in 2007, three of us were hunting buffalo in the Selous Reserve in Tanzania. We knew that Skin So Soft did a great job keeping all manner of flies away from our horses in the States and heard that we could use it on our persons to ward off the Tsetse flies in Africa. So we took the Skin So Soft CONCENTRATED liquid with us.I noticed in the pic above where you guys are having lunch that @Just Gina is wearing blue. Next time try not to wear blue black Tsetse fly and Mosquitoes are attracted to this colour.
I’ve been using this stuff. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Avon-Mosqu...locphy=9045599&hvtargid=pla-565508473398&th=1
works ok you smell nice and have soft skin afterwards lol but I’m sure there are better products.
Try to avoid the blues and blacks though.
Well, one is supposed to be downwind of the animals hence the "ash bag", so how one smells doesn't really matter.
I think Rye bread in the Light and Dark varieties originally came from Russia as they can't grow wheat so well in the cold climate.Gosh, I hope no one finds out that we sometimes have sandwiches in our packed lunches. Seriously we recently had a Russian hunter his second visit. He brought his own sausages for lunch, but could not understand why we did not have Russian black bread. Anyone have a good Russian black bread recipe, one not from a Ukrainian cook book.
Actually, the Russian immigrants here in the US brought with them their “winter wheat” variety seeds when they arrived. They showed the farmers here how to plant wheat in the fall and have wheat ready to harvest in June. Before that, the only wheat available here was planted in the Spring and harvested in October. Really amazing from my perspective.I think Rye bread in the Light and Dark varieties originally came from Russia as they can't grow wheat so well in the cold climate.
As for making it it is a very sticky consistency so you need to work fast if kneading by hand . It is different to the typical breads made of Wheat flour that contain Gluten.
Gluten contains glutenin and gliaden that give the dough it's elasticity and extensibility.
Anyway, I'm siding with the Ukraine. No offence to your client but I imagine Russians do not form a big part of your clientele.
Im sure Russia has its motive for invading the Ukraine but I think they should back up and accept they can't just take it.
When we take politics out of the equation we can learn something from everyone.Actually, the Russian immigrants here in the US brought with them their “winter wheat” variety seeds when they arrived.

Gine, your sandwich's for dad story reminded me of the old joke.My favorite way of making coffee is fast!
I have a commercial Bunn coffee maker. I have used that type of coffee maker for years. I also have a Keurig, but I use that for the occasional flavored coffees.
Like the best kudu steak I ever had. My PH was grilling it in one of those two sided hand held grills with a handle on it. It fell apart over the fire and he quickly fished it out with tongs and unceremoniously dumped it on my plate and said "there you go, dive in!" Fantastic!I was born in Nicaragua, and my grandpa had a small coffee plantation midway up of an old inactive volcano, and I helped pick coffee. One of the ladies from the farm would roast, grind, and make coffee in an old coffee can, over an open fire, and it was the best coffee I had, ever. The closest coffee to what I remember is brewing coffee on the coffee pot I listed over an over fire.
Oh, and yes, I would love to take you up on that offer and smoke a cigar with one/two or three cups of coffee.
Gina,,,,,Gina ( I meant to say), your sandwich's for dad story reminded me of the old joke.
Two workmen on lunch break at the job site. One breaks out a sandwich from his lunch box, unwraps it. "WHAT? Cheese sandwich again?!?!"
Buddy says, "well tell your wife to make something else then".
He says, "oh, well I make my own lunch"..
