    My first thought was…”Try spreading out some nice, ripe grain.”

    That would probably be deemed ideologically incorrect these days.

    Still – it works. Why does a peacock have those tail feathers otherwise?

    To quote Sting – ‘If you love somebody – set them free’.

    It won’t be the only place to find it, if you send it to TON?
