I 'm going to laugh my butt off watching them sting the beejesus out of you....Swamp people ,,,,,,,,Hmmmmmmmm. I'll have to check it out .

Matthew, The africanized bees are good for honey production. They just dont like giving it up. The dufus on TV found out that the non african ones will tear you a new one too. Not far from my house they are working with the Africanized bees using Russian queens to calm them down. Hope that works out. Rando I recall as a child listening to the cajun french radio stations and when they did commercials they would say every thing in french ,, but ,, White wall tires, Radio , air conditioned an such things like that. I used to wonder if there were french words for , white, wall, tires or any of the other english words they slipped into the french commercials . Broken english or broken french its all the same, in fact the people that visit from France have a hard time understanding some of it. kind of like talking to Nell , if you recall the movie with Jody Foster...Chic a pe Ta ta , payen in na win ....reckon ....

Hey Randy -- I just saw the commercial for this last night. It's on History Sunday night, I think 10:00 p.m. but don't quote me on the time. I had my hand in front of my face in case there were any snakes ---- I HATE snakes.

Lamb61, you get use to snakes . We have a few rules that help though. Always watch where your walking, never put your hands where you cant see, check under the patio furniture cushion before you sit down , always watch out when you open the barbecue pit lid, make lots of noise if you walk in the yard at night, look behind the frog before you catch him with your hand,( something else may have the same idea), check your fish stringer often , ( snakes love helpless fish ) , never lift up something in the yard without expecting mr no neck to be underneath, and never never pick black berries without a stick to poke around in the vines first. Other than that, your pretty safe. There are only three snakes you need to worry about. Moccasins , copper heads , and rattlers. Although the coral snake is poisonous it lacks fangs and can only bite if given time to chew on you a while , so dont sleep where he can crawl up next to you and gnaw on your earlobe . If you know the snakes that are poisonous you dont have to worry about the hundreds that aren't . Now , doesn't that put your mind at ease ?

Oh geez, now I'm going to have nightmares about snakes tonight. Gives me the willies just thinking about them.

If there is a "harmless" black snake in the yard I run up on the deck and scream like a girl (good thing I am one)! The family and neighbors get a good laugh though. It's a pain going fishing along the bank of a lake -- I have to talk myself out of running for the car when a water moccasin swims by.

Sniper,

Be careful with that advice. The Coral snake thing is a dangerous myth. Their fangs are short, but quite functional. it only takes a quick nip. I know of one case in Florida where some Know it All tried to handle one. No chewing, but a nice trip & stay in the Hospital. Frankly, I used to believe they needed to chew myself, but I've seen demos that prove otherwise..
And snakes are deaf to airborne sound..

YYou guys aren't talking about "Dual Survival" on Discovery, are you? Re: improvised bee suit!
African Bees can object VERY STRONGLY against having their space invaded! LOL

Thanks for that info Matthew. That makes a strong case for my way of dealing with snakes,,I leave them the H--- alone . Sence most snakes can strike 2/3 of their body length its not hard to stay away from that range, but ever now and then you find your that close before you see them. Slow retreat is one option but a jump backwards while screaming , OH S--- works too. I know they cant hear but they can feel vibrations so making lots of noise is a good thing , however , Old cotton mouth is a snake with an attitude and most times he will just coil up with his mouth open ready to strike when he is disturbed, thus the name cotton mouth as the inside of his mouth is snow white and in most cases the only part you see . Mr coral snake is not going to bite me because I'm not going to handle him . I cant hear rattle snakes anymore so I try to stay away from areas where they are . The woods is much safer when its cold if you get my meaning .
Lamb , I was helping my uncle with some plumbing under his house one time and he told me he felt something cold on his leg. He slid himself slowly out from under the house and shook a small rattle snake out of his pant leg. That should make you jump up on the deck and check you pants.

That's great information about a few snakes I've never seen, although a show last week on snakes said the coral snake is very dangerous because it's venom is so potent it only takes a small amout to seriously hurt or kill us. Glad we only have to deal with rattlers here in B.C.

Well the good thing about the coral snake is its bright colors. Red , yellow and black . Not like the copper head that blends in with the dead leaves . All you have to remember is if the red and yellow bands touch, its a coral snake. Other non poisonus snakes have these colors but the black band is between the red and yellow. Red on yellow , kill a fellow. Thats the old boy scout saying to tell the diff. Like Matthew, I dont care to pick up a snake. They have a job to do and if they leave me alone, I leave them alone. The real deal is the same with all animals that we have a chance to come in contact with . The more you know about them the less trouble you will have with them . Wish I could pick up a book that had lots of info on people . Then I would know which ones to leave alone and which ones could be friends. At least a snake is only going to bite you if you put him in a bad possition . People are not that easy to read.

Sniper, I was told that the Cajun language originated from Quebec, Canada. Is this true?

Yes dunny, the French were gathered up and forced out of Canada and made there way down through the states and along the coast until settling in south Louisiana , mostly St. Martinville Louisiana. See story of (Evangeline) . She was separated from her fiance when they were shipped out of Canada and story is she stood waiting every day under a large oak tree in St Martinville , hoping here lover would land there. The Tree is know as , The Evangeline Oak and many people from France go to see it , and they search for relatives that were lost in the mass exodus. The French language changed through years of outside influences, additions of words from other languages and slang words . The native indian in La. helped the french settle and showed them what foods to eat, thus the cultures are intertwined . Those of French , Indian and Negro heritage call themselves Cajun Creole and have a unigue culture , mostly in and around New Orleans .

Its a southern thing dunny, I tip my hat, open the door and hold the ladies chair, say yes ma'am and no ma'am and lots of other sweet things , because my mama taught me well, and she was a sweet and gentle southern lady , and shes in heaven, and if I ever get there , ( it's doubtful) , I know that if I have not made her proud ,,,she's going to slap the H--- out of me ....

Sniper, I wish some of your southern sweet mannered ways would make it all over... There's not many
that will even hold a door anymore, and I find myself apologizing to people even when they're in the wrong.
But I digress. Was this French Quebec thing, anything to do with the beaver trade, or am I way off?

Sniper- I'm just realizin you might be near me. Do you live in NOLA too? Quite frankly, I'm sick of the Louseeana shows myself. I watch tv to escape not to relive a worse version over and over again. I still can't get over the Gumbo parties we have every Sunday (K-ville). And thank you for replaying my torn up house on the news for 5 years! How embarrassing, we should have cleaned up!
Current meds:  Remicade

Sickofitall, I'm about 2 hours west of you, near vermilion bay on bayou tech....I'm not too found of La. shows either. Looks like you can only get on tv if your stupid. I guess that sells. No TV stations came hear after Andrew or Kitrina or Ritaor about six other storms I can name . We cleaned up without any help and we didn't get any gov. money. I worked 12 to 16 hour days and then did clean up at home after. There was no water or electricity for 18 days. One neighbor had a gas stove and she cooked what was thawing out of the freezers. We had to find water to drink or bathe in and that was tough but we fed the neighborhood and even the police when they came by on patrol. We boiled water on the crawfish burner .The bayou water was full of dead fish and smelled like sewage so we flushed the toilets with rain water. There were trees down all over and the farmers came in with their cane loaders and moved them from the roads. Never saw any of it on TV. Looks like they only like to show the people of La in a bad light.
