Bass Fishing: When and How to Fish Lizards

Bass want to kill lizards

Lizards during the spawn are deadly. Bass hate these little creatures. It will be executed if a lizard even thinks about getting near a bed. The reason for the violence is pretty simple. Various lizards are well-known bass bed robbers. They will ransack the nest and kill hundreds, possibly thousands, of bass eggs before the guardian even has a chance to react.

Ford’s BBQ

The Best Thing to come out of 2020

I was shocked twice today about a new restaurant we tried. First, I would have thought this BBQ had been here for years yet it opened in the fall of 2021. The second was how great the service and food were and I’ll definitely be returning here. It was opened by pitmasters Justin Bradford and Jon Jaffin who pride themselves on high-quality smoked meats, made-from-scratch Southern sides with a Mexican twist, and special housemade sauces.

Jungle Cruise (2021)

We’re headed into headhunter territory, which is a terrible place to beheaded.

I watched the 2021 Disney’s Jungle Cruise on Netflix DVD. This fantasy adventure film was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop, The Commuter) and is based on Walt Disney’s eponymous theme park attraction. It tells the story of the captain of a small riverboat who takes a scientist and her brother through a jungle in search of the Tree of Life while competing against a German expedition and cursed conquistadors. The filming took place in Hawaii and Georgia, from May through September of 2018.

Oat Milk

If you are looking for a low-sugar oat milk, the Chobani Zero Sugar Oat Milk is top of the list.

Unlike soy milk, which was made in China during the period A.D. 25-220, oat milk is brand new. I’m talking about the 1990s when it was developed in Sweden. Oat milk is notable among baristas because it doesn’t separate when making coffee beverages. This makes it the perfect alternative for any iced drinks such as iced coffees, iced lattes, and iced macchiatos.

Topaz (1969)

What is TOPAZ? Is TOPAZ a person? A code name? A mystery? It’s all of these and more.

I watched this 1969 Universal Pictures Drama/Spy Thriller Alfred Hitchcock’s “Topaz” on Netflix DVD. This was the extended cut at 143 minutes. Don’t miss the Hitchcock cameo, about 30 minutes into the film. The defection of a high-ranking Soviet intelligence officer, Boris Kusenov, and his family, to the United States, could shed valuable information on what the Russians were setting up in Cuba, in 1962. CIA agent Mike Nordstrom learns of the missiles with nuclear warheads and recruits French agent André Devereaux to prove this intelligence.

Caves on the Moon?

Possible protection from the lunar surface, where it may be as hot as 212°F during the day and as cold as -238°F just before dawn.

There has been a discovery of a huge cave on the moon. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)[1], using data from their space probe, in 2009 after the Selenological and Engineering Explorer (SELENE)[2], detected a 164-foot wide cave opening on October 18, 2017.
