    That's my little sweetheart. LOLI am glad Rod is working with us to try and draw more to not only the BOC but our gathering as well. I particularly loved your photograph in the paper. But that picture looked like it was from a camera phone.... weird huh.

    I used to fish quite a lot. They have done studies that fish feel pain. So I only fish for food now, usually using methods that do not require catching too small of a fish. I see these fishermen who make a day out of catching fish, then throwing them back without eyes and with ripped, maimed mouths. How silly and cruel you must be to do that for sport. You can hear catfish make sounds, a kind of wail. Once you understand their biology, you can understand that may be a cry of pain. Come on bubbas, get a new hobby. Do you want us to hook your kids and listen to then cry? Before you poo poo this fish pain thing like you do anything you don't understand, do some research. Kind of a cruel hobby now that we know what we know about the animals.

    That is what was posted in regards to that article. God that made me laugh out loud. We should be ashamed of ourselves for doing such a cruel and mean thing. Sure.. I can understand their part... but seriously... let's not do golf or horseback ride or cut the lawn either because it is proof that plants 'sense things' and 'have feelings' too. :wink:

    Yeah, that was quite amusing. Think of all the innocent plants we are murdering when we eat a salad. And good gosh, perhaps air molecules have feelings as well!? How dare we breathe!!!

    Today a person jokingly said "I didn't know you were a redneck!" I replied, "Sure am - and darn proud of it!"

    I also saw a post from a reader who liked the article and plans to join us in June. Several co-workers also liked the article and checked out the new BOC site. The media is quite a recruiting tool for the BOC!

    A little bit of both. The author and I know of each other through local sports and we have a mutual friend. He knows I am into catfishing and I think I mentioned the BOC before. I thought it would be nice to promote the BOC and the June Gathering at the same time. The response today has been wonderful. It looks like we will have several new members because of the article.
