Horror In Białołęka District

Agata Mandał Agata Mandał, studentka anglistyki, myśli i pisze po wyspiarsku, mieszka w Wiśniewie

It was a very nice Sunday evening. It was quite warm, but you could not see the sun on the sky. There was only a big yellow moon blinking from behind the clouds. I was going back home from one of the churches in Białołęka district. While I was walking along the forest I heard a strange noise in the bush. I was not impressed with that because I knew that many people in the district own a dog and they walk them around here at different times of day. Therefore, I kept on walking my way.

Few days after, a similar situation took place. It was in the morning when I was on my way to the bus stop (the one near Modlińska Street). I was in hurry for a bus when suddenly I heard a rustle in the woods. I stayed adamant because here, in this park, children who go to a nearby school play hide-and-seek game. That is why I thought they were just looking for places to hide from their friends. I rushed quickly to the bus stop in order not to be late for my bus. After a while I totally forgot about those mysterious sounds I heard in the park.

The situation changed when in the evening I was riding my bike to visit my friend. In order to get there faster I decided to take a shortcut through a forest. This way was by far better. A lot of people use it. What is more, from time to time you can see here some young people who have chosen this place to meet in. However, this time there were no people around. It was quite dark so having my heart in my boots I decided to slow down and watch the thicket carefully. Many a time have I seen such scenery in thrillers. A twilight, a forest, only one thing was missing – a monster. I did not have to wait long to see that enormous hairy creature that emerged from behind a tree. It had a huge snout and it made awful sounds. It was staring at me with those large black eyes. It stank terribly because it was whole covered with mud. I stopped. I had no idea what to do. Should I start screaming, or should I turn back? I decided to wait and see what this creature was going to do. Luckily, the monster only crossed the road and disappeared in the forest. I thought: bison live in wilderness1 and in Białołęka – wild boars.

I know those animals are herbivorous but they can still be very dangerous. Especially when their whelps are around. Sows are big and heavy but they can move fast. It is better to avoid them passing by calmly. "When you meet a boar in a wood, climb the nearest tree for your own good"1. Unfortunately, I have serious problems with imagining my grandma running from wild boars, trying to climb a tree in despair. I am not sure if I was able to do that myself.

It seems the case is now finished. Personally, I have not seen boars for a long time and I would not like to meet them. But still, every time I go to the bus stop I fear that I will meet some hairy monster with a huge snout. More than that, I fear for those children playing hide-and-seek and for everyone who carelessly strolls in the beautiful forests of Białołęka district on Sunday afternoons.

Too many of them? Send a few thousand breeidng pairs to each of those Muslim countries that hate us and Israel so much that they want to wipe us all from the earth. They\'re part of the pig family and reproduce like crazy- so I can\'t think of a more appropriate thing to do with them.

No, we don\'t brush their teeth although I\'ve never seen caietvis. Their diet seems to keep them pretty clean.As to baths, the pigs take them all the time. In the summer they wallow daily in the mud puddles. Given the opportunity they\'ll do that any season. It cleans them, protects them from the sun, keeps insects at bay and is good or their skin. They also bath in the hay and snow. Their hair sheds dirt very easily.Age of slaughter is typically about six months or so. It really depends on what the customer wants. For standard orders it is around 250 lbs. Some people want larger or smaller pigs. 250 lbs live weight gives about 180 lbs (72%) hanging weight skin, feet, head on (scald scrape). That yields about 120 lbs (67%) of standard commercial cuts. However, there are a lot of other good pieces of pork on a pig in that other non-commercial portion. Ask for the head, feet, hocks, tail, liver, kidneys, tongue, jowl, back fat, leaf lard, heart, etc. It is all good food. See post for details.How fast a pig will reach market weight depends on genetics and feed. Pure pasture for example is typically low in lysine, a protein, so that becomes a limiting factor which slows growth. Given sufficient time most breeds of pigs will grow to a quarter ton or more. Bigger breeds like the Yorkshire, part of the basis for our pig herds, will typically hit half a ton and even approach a ton. Our bigger sows who are four years or so old are about 800 lbs and the boars are 1,000 to 1,400 lbs based on the of weight estimating. I do not actually have a scale that will weight such large animals.

Your beautiful blog brnigs back memories of a wonderful extended trip to Bordeaux and Me9doc when I was still a student and on a tight budget but it was delightful in every way. Many years later, I, too, made the move from the big city (NYC) to the country. It took adapting, and still does, but I would not swap the countryside for any city in the world not only because I can go out and pick my own grape leaves to wrap salmon filets (no quail here, he9las). I also get so much more done here. Yes, country life is serene but it is also much more productive. http://qsrzqv.com [url=http://bzyqelum.com]bzyqelum[/url] [link=http://vpapeeshquh.com]vpapeeshquh[/link]
