How to catch a mess of crawfish

When I was a kid we’d take a chicken neck, tied a piece of kite string to it, and go on down to the crawdad hole over at the creek. Lower the chicken neck to the bottom and wait a few minutes til we felt a slight vibration and tugging of a wiley crayfish gnawing away. Patiently and very slowly we’d pull up the chicken neck and dip a small net made of chicken wire underneath and scoop up the crawdaddy. We’d repeat this over the course of a warm Saturday afternoon until we’d filled up a couple gallon bucket.

We’d head home where Mama would throw them in a pot of rice, beans and sausage seasoned perfectly with the trinity of onion, celery and green bell pepper. My lord the aroma coming out of that kitchen would have everyone to drooling.

Now-a-days, we don’t have time to sit there and dangle a chicken neck from a piece of string. Instead we build some or buy some crawfish traps, bait them with fresh chicken, or catfood, and put them down in very same crawdad holes we used to fish when we were kids. Leave the traps overnight, and first thing in the morning we collect the traps, and empty them into the same plastic buckets we used to use. Difference is the amount of time we spend actually doing the catching is pretty much equal to zip, zero, nada.

And Mama is still in the kitchen cooking us up a mess of crawfish.

Life is good.

Bay Area Biodiesel

I live in a part of the country that embraces a different approach to a lot of things. One of those things is we like alternative fuels for our vehicles. Many folks in this are love old Mercedes Diesels, Dodge Diesel Trucks, Ford Diesel Trucks, GM Diesel Trucks, VW Jettas and old Rabbits, BMW Diesels, etc. We burn used filtered veggie oil or grease, and we burn BioDiesel which typically is used cooking oil, fats and grease converted or processed into Biodiesel.

I have purchased Biodiesel in the bay area including BioFuels Oasis in Berkeley, and Sirona Fuels in Oakland. Sirona BioFuels usually has the best price on biodiesel in the bay area, and they are nice folks, and they have beyond ASTM quality and 3rd party certified Biodiesel for sale. Current Biodiesel price can be found at their website.

So if you are looking for Bay Area Biodiesel I highly recommend Sirona Fuels in Oakland.

Martial Arts Schools – Vallejo, California

There is a plethora of Vallejo Martial Arts Schools, no doubt due to the reputation of this ex-navy blue collar town. Because of budget cuts and the city declaring bankruptcy, police and fire protection is at a new low. Should you need a police intervention to protect you or your family, you might wait hours, or days to get any law enforcement attention. As a result citizens are enrolling themselves and their children in Martial Arts for self protection and defense.

Some Martial arts stress offense, and use devastating and dangerous tactics and techniques to protect the person. It is relatively easy to teach brutality but more difficult to teach someone to confidence, skill and empowerment, while also teaching responsibility, awareness, assessment, and appropriate action. Seibukan Jujutsu, aka Vallejo ju jitsu, Vallejo jiu jitsu and Vallejo jujitsu is an ancient Japanese Martial art practiced by Warriors on the battle field. Jujutsu was an art perfected for defending oneself, minus weapons in battle where your opponent still had his weapons and also wore body armor. Modern Seibukan Jujutsu has been designed for modern times and warriors, and as a result has obvious roots in the ancient, but modified for modern people and situations.
