    Yes, isn’t the Konza wonderful?

    I miss the Prairie.

    Poor beast. It’s named after a road that goes through Scunthorpe.

    A history teacher uses my class room during my planning period. She was telling about how settlers and the railroads wiped out “the buffalo” while showing pictures of hunters with their trophy buffalo. Unfortunately, the pictures really were buffalo- Cape Buffalo in Africa.

    I showed her pictures of actual bison after her class left.
