Don't most bats have rabies?

I assumed that's a picture of the ill squirrel.

Apparently not:


Most bats don't have rabies. For example, even among bats submitted for rabies testing because they could be captured, were obviously weak or sick, or had been captured by a cat, only about 6% had rabies.

My next door neighbor keeps a bat house. Every night they are welcome to fly about my property clearing out mosquitos and other buggers. :)

Someone gave me one and I put it up a few years ago. No bats. This area used to be alive with them on warm evenings. White nose disease or whatever it's called has wiped them out. :(

I'm catching up. See above.


Doing OK?

I rode my best bike today. What a difference. Like riding on clouds. Then I was in the hammock most of the rest of the day. Will take tomorrow off to get some actual work done. I'll be putting in a planting of Moringa oleifera
Need to get seeds started and ground cleared and prepared. Also, new moon approaching, and I want to do some pruning. Steadily gaining energy, after my three month recuperation.
Looks like we've suffered another upgrade. Let the bugs flow.

Yeah, a coworker of mine returned them after 5-6 weeks. Pity.

Even I'm sick of that other thread. Ugh.

I get your draft drift. Best advice is stay out of the 41.

Bah Humbug 07-14-20 04:53 PM

Nothing quite like expecting to blast some aliens after a tough day at work and... Halo needs an update. :notamused:

MUPs are full of “interesting” people.

my afternoon commute starts on a MUP (the same one that got “famous” about a month ago :twitchy:) that goes on a steady 1-to-2% climb for about 7 miles. Right at the start, I feel a “presence” behind me and find someone sucking at my wheel, less than a foot behind my fenders. Mind you, I’m on my commuter, with two full pannier bags, and I don’t wear a mask to boot. I slow down a little, and the guy immediately jumps ahead, does the same thing to another commuter I was closing on. The guy is on an aero bike, full aero kit down to his blue shoe covers. He tucks in, gets aero and practices his drafting skills, on a MUP, full of runners, walkers, evening commuters, going up hill. :bang:

I lost sight of him after about two miles, but during that time I saw him “drafting” two other commuters, a hipster on a steel bike blaring music from his phone, and a gentleman of mature ages within the time I was trailing him.

what kind of a ****** up delusional mind do you need to have to think that practicing your drafting skills on unsuspecting strangers on a MUP is OK, I wonder? :troll:

sorry, rant over.

I hate that trail for that reason.

Whoa! Didn’t realize someone left the window open and there was a draft. :p
