I should have included "domestic" in the sentence.
10-4

other than the dog, livestock domestication began in the middle east, first goats and sheep.

the book i read said, for some reason, mother nature concentrated those herd animals in that area and they lend themselves to domestication. domesticated grain got its start there also.

domos is greek for house.....i think.

one great line is......we didn't domesticate agriculture, it domesticated us.

funny...rolls is buying the engine/motor from someone else.
I think this is typically in the world of EV start ups like Tesla but quickly they realized "If it to be it is up to me".

Please elaborate on the two-thousand dollar new car. Thanks.
I didn't add the AM radio at the time of purchase. In the 200,000 we drove the car we never added AC.

Timing helped because I bought the Datsun 1200 while we were still on the gold standard in March 1973. By October 1973 and off the gold standard the price overnight shot up by $500.

Must have been in 1950.
I think the last $2000 new car went away in the early '60s. My parents bought a new Rambler Classic in 1962 for about $2k. "Old Blue" was the only car we ever named. They gave it to my younger sister when she got married. She and her husband drove it for about 10 years. It ran half a million miles and was still running when they traded it in.
