    There’s a contra dancing group here where I live. You just show up and join in. When my kids were younger (they re adults now) we would often join in with those groups. Pretty much during the colder weather. Gave us something to do outside the house on dark cold evenings. Contra dancing is very fun, repetitive steps for each dance so easy to learn, memorize, then show off your dancing! Kids were always welcome to join in. A great exercise!

    Your tags limit the number of deer you can take, but if you need to thin the herd more you can always let your neighbors hunt your land. Jason: You need to move back a little more. It looks like you have a giant head, compared to Ben and Al.

    Jason your 'bene' is called a torque in Canada and many of the border states. In Ohio they are called a toboggan (another French word). All are valid names. Just depends on where you live.

    Great chat, guys! In New Zealand we call winter hats 'beanies'. Shepherd's pie is usually made with beef mince (probably because it's cheaper) and sometimes with veggies added. I can't handle peas either. 😉

    Don’t throw away the pork intestines. They’re great fried. Check out “Chicharon Bulaklak” from the Philippines. Pig brain and pig face you can make Sisig. 😅

    I always enjoy these podcasts.
    In NW Fla people say toboggan when referring to knit hats. Being a long ago transplant I still say beanie also.
    It’s interesting hearing Jason talk about contra dancing. When we bought our place (20 years ago) there was a huge octagonal structure out in the front yard of the main house.
    It has half walls, and the upper walls are screened. We have always used it as an out door kitchen as it sits right in the river and has a great view.
    For a few weeks we were in the dark as to why the entire perimeter had these benches that can fold down flat against the wall…and there was a big ball hanging from the center of the ceiling with different colored lights sticking out from all sides. A subsequent conversation with our neighbor revealed that the structure had been used for contra dancing! I guess that monstrosity of colored lights was their version of a disco ball lol! Gotta love a place with character.
    Al, you should definitely make beaver chili, you would probably win the cook off bc of the unique flavor 😂😂
    Great video guys.
    Love watching all of your channels, too.

    In eastern Canada- we call it a touque. My shepherds pie is gravied beef, peas, carrots, mashed potatoes. We love our Can-am. We rode the back trails of Newfoundland for two summers. You won’t be disappointed!! Congrats on the successful class Ben

    I’ve found a use for peas, I feed them to my koi fish. Store bought koi food floats on top where as the peas sink to the bottom . Koi are carp and they are bottom feeders which makes them clean their pond.
