Re: Training a Cat . . .

The best example of the difference between cats and dogs is this old joke.

If you die in your house with your dog, three weeks later the dog is found dead at your side.
If you die in your house with your cat, three weeks later the cat has gained weight.

Re: SR-71

I just wonder what we now have to replace it? The SR-71 was kept a secret for a long time. It is now retired, and I doubt that it would have been retired if we did not have something to replace it. Seems to be some question as to it being "retired". Seems they reported more being made that retired....

Re: trail cam question

I do use several Ring cameras at home. Mine are wireless, battery powered with solar panels. You have the option to use lights or not. With lights images are as good as daylight. Without the monochrome night vision is pretty darned good.

Bushnell’s are reasonable and have pretty good images. Look for one with a solar power option. Costs a tad more but no battery worries.
