Peanuts in the Farmer Market – Part 1 – Food Variety 20

Saturday, August 6, 2022

We always buy peanuts, raw or green every summer (around July to August) at our neighborhood’s farmer market.

Peanut is a summer crop, but we may find plenty of boiled peanuts in many places in our city, year rounds.

I think it is a “good” business, because a boiled peanut is one of our state traditional food favorites.

In fact, Louisiana farmers together with other states such as South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi have produced peanuts in specific locations since more than 50 years ago.

Pug was a Breeding Dog for Royal Families – Critter 13

Tuesday, August 2, 2022

I have seen quite number of people “dog walking” with pugs at city parks recently. This breeding is a kind of “strange” dog breeding for me.

I thought a pug was “a manipulated breeding” for a certain purpose in modern time or in our era.

After doing little research through internet, I found interesting facts of pug:

- pugs are breeding dogs from ancient China more than 2,000 years ago

- pure breeding, not mixing of other breeding

- breeding dog for royal families and wealthy people

Then, how much its cost to have a pug nowadays?

Commercial cost to have a pug is about US$ 1,100, and even much higher if breeding was championship or show dogs bloodlines.

However, I knew as low as US$100 for a pug puppy from family pets bloodlines, sold by some neighbors.

Some reasons people love to have pugs are:

- pugs love and playful with kids

- pug doesn’t bite aggressively, hence safe for children

- they are smart and good learners

- observant
