Default Thanks Sandi for the fascinating lesson...

End of history lesson, folks. LOL
That's a fascinating lesson!

I (like probably many others) had no idea that "buffalo chips" were used by the pioneers for heating and cooking... (They never showed this on "Gunsmoke"! I've been watching reruns on cable... Somehow, Matt Dillon looking around for buffalo dung to build a fire while he's off chasing a suspected killer across the plains doesn't fit his "gung ho" image... )

Also, if anyone ever gives me a packet of "buffalo chips" - I'll know not to eat it!

Thanks, Sandi!
