Swiss Ban Cruel Boiling Of Live Lobsters. What’s Next? PDF Print E-mail


Your travel4seniors.com editor enjoys visiting the beautiful yodel and cheese nation, However, next time we may not order lobster at our favorite Swiss café. Not that boiling live critters is nice, but I doubt if the Swiss butchers prepare their cattle and poultry with kindness on execution day.

The Swiss law which also covers other doomed animals, also suggests a contradiction in terms: humane death by “rendering them unconscious”, and then dumped into scalding water. The law also gives domestic pets protections, including not preventing dogs from barking. Oh sure, tell that to the neighbors when your hound dog bays at the moon at midnight.

 
Overnight Luxury Bus Between Los Angeles And San Francisco PDF Print E-mail


One-way fares on Cabin start at $85, and it takes about eight night hours. That’s city center to city center, and a comparable airline trip isn’t that much quicker nor cheaper.

Although the actual in-air flight time is only about two hours, consider getting to and from the airport, parking, security check-in and tarmac delays. The total flying journey takes about the same time as the bus ride. And without the private, stretched-out sleep comfort and California dawn window views.

Titanic Liner Replica Being Constructed In China PDF Print E-mail

Of course, the new ship is never intended to make it to the ocean, because the building site is more than 700 miles away from the nearest water. It will serve as some kind of amusement park in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. That’s 850 miles from Hong Kong and 940 from Beijing. The finished project is expected to welcome its first visitors in about a year.

With this kind of tragic historic remembrance, would there be plans elsewhere to do similar disaster reproductions? There’s already a replica of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky. How about Napoleon’s Retreat From Moscow, Custer’s Last Stand, the L.A. Dodgers in the 2017 World Series and Hillary’s Presidential Campaign?
