There's an old sailors' saying about the ocean at the southernmost part of the world — “below 40 degrees latitude, there is no law; below 50 degrees, there is no God.” David Grann brings us the story of what happened when five British warships set off on a secret mission to steal a ship filled with treasure. They'd have to sail around the very bottom of South America — at 56 degrees south. David Grann's book is The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny and Murder.

We LOVE books. One of the casualties of our current age and our screen adapted/crippled attention spans is that we don't read as much anymore. In this magic moment, Taralyn gives her best persuasion for reading and gives lots of easy tips to keep or acquire the habit of reading in your life. People ask us all the time how we read so many books, and she tells the secret to our habits:) Books and Links We Mentioned: Women Who Run With Wolves // Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D The Gift // Hafiz You Can Heal Your Life // Louise Hay Related Episodes The Power Of Beautiful Words Book Club Recommendations for 2020 Finding Motivation to Claim Your Personal Power Hour Make Your Morning Routine Happen!

So many of those years I would listen to Taralyn or Felicia talk about reframing and even enjoying the mundane tasks (like changing diapers) and to dos that normally are mindless. They talked about enjoying these things, creating connection in them. Every week I tuned in but honestly, I didn't believe it. I said things like, "I can't be that mom, that isn't working for MY children, these women are just UNICORNS. And every episode I would still plug in my headphones and listen along and wish I could get there, be that mom. Then something switched, last year I went on (my first ever) solo retreat to South America. It was a women's empowerment, yoga, surf trip but a switch flipped and I started doing the work on myself. I continued taking steps like FINALLY starting a miracle morning routine (for me!) and guess what? Things started clicking with my kids, and at home. So if you are able, start with yourself. I was convinced that to be a good mom I had to read all the parenting books, listen to all the podcasts, plan all the activities but that is so far from reality. Start with your Self! So grateful to Find The Magic, To Taralyn, Felicia and Katelin... Thank you! --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/findthemagic/support

Thanks to Alexandra and Pranav for their suggestions this week! Let's learn about manatees and sloths, including a surprising extinct sloth. Further reading: Sloths in the Water A West Indian manatee: A three-toed sloth: Show transcript: Welcome to Strange Animals Podcast. I'm your host, Kate Shaw. This week we have a suggestion from Alexandra and Pranav, who wanted an episode about manatees. We'll also talk about another marine mammal, a weird extinct one you may never have heard of. The manatee is also called the sea cow, because it sort of slightly resembles a cow and it grazes on plants that grow underwater. It's a member of the order Sirenia, which includes the dugong, and sirenians are probably most closely related to the elephant. This sounds ridiculous at first, but there are a lot of physical similarities between the manatee and the elephant. Their teeth are very similar, for instance, even if the manatee doesn't grow tusks. The elephant has a pair of big chewing teeth on each side of its mouth that look more like the bottoms of running shoes than ordinary teeth. Every so many years, the four molars in an elephant's mouth start to get pushed out by four new molars. The new teeth grow in at the back of the mouth and start moving forward, pushing the old molars farther forward until they fall out. The manatee has this same type of tooth replacement, although its teeth aren't as gigantic as the elephant's teeth. The manatee also has hard ridged pads on the roof of its mouth that help it chew its food. Female manatees are larger than males on average, and a really big female manatee can grow over 15 feet long, or 4.6 meters. Most manatees are between 9 and 10 feet long, or a little less than 3 meters. Its body is elongated like a whale, but unlike a whale it's slow, usually only swimming about as fast as a human can swim. Its skin is gray or brown although often it has algae growing on it that helps camouflage it. The end of the manatee's tail looks like a rounded paddle, and it has front flippers but no rear limbs. Its face is rounded with a prehensile upper lip covered with bristly whiskers, which it uses to find and gather water plants. Every so often a manatee will eat a little fish, apparently on purpose. Since most herbivorous animals will eat meat every so often, this isn't unusual. Mostly, though, the manatee spends almost all of its time awake eating plants, often from the bottom of the waterway where it lives. It lives in shallow water and will use its flippers to walk itself along the bottom, and also uses its flippers to dig up plants. Its upper lip is divided in two like the upper lips of many animals, which you can see in a dog or cat as that little line connecting the bottom of the nose to the upper lip. In the manatee, though, both sides of the lips have a lot of muscles and can move independently. There are three species of manatee alive today: the West Indian manatee that lives in the Gulf of Mexico down to the eastern coast of northern South America, the Amazonian manatee that lives exclusively in fresh water in the Amazon basin, and the West African manatee that lives in brackish and fresh water. Sometimes the West Indian manatee will also move into river systems to find food. Back in episode 153 we talked about the Florida manatee, which is a subspecies of West Indian manatee. In the winter it mostly lives around Florida but in summer many individuals travel widely. It's sometimes found as far north as Massachusetts along the Atlantic coast, and as far west as Texas in the Gulf of Mexico, but despite its size, the manatee doesn't have a lot of blubber or fat to keep it warm. The farther away it travels from warm water, the more likely it is to die of cold. In the 1970s there were only a few hundred Florida manatees alive and it nearly went extinct. It was listed as an endangered species and after a lot of effort by a lot of different conservation groups,
R2Kast - People in Food and Farming
Annie, from a dairy farm was always involved in farming whether that was through the home farm or YF. However there seemed to be a theme throughout that cattle nutrition was her thing from day one. Originally she wanted to be a vet however an aversion to science proved problematic throughout her school life…your guess is as good as mine as to why she chose to study animal SCIENCE at SRUC in Edinburgh! Nutrition really caught on here, carrying out her dissertation on dairy nutrition at the Crichton Royal Farm in Dumfries! Basically straight after finishing uni (before her graduation) it was time to travel for Annie, NZ, South America and more was what was next for Annie before coming back to find her career in nutrition where she still is! Great story with someone that should be more confident in her ability!
Welcome to another special milestone episode of the Falconry Told Podcast! We've now hit the century mark, and thanks to the Arizona Falconers Association, we were able to do a series featuring falconers from all across the Grand Canyon State, including our esteemed guest for this episode, Harry McElroy! Harry and his wife Beth were kind enough to invite us into their home to discuss Harry's long tenure in falconry, which spanned several decades. At 93 years old, Harry is recently retired from falconry, but he has left behind a long legacy of contributions to the sport. While it's impossible to be able to fully encompass such a long life's worth of stories and experiences into an hour or so, we were happy to be able to share Harry's beginnings in falconry, his experiences living in Mexico, South America, and parts of the United States, and some of the knowledge that he's gleaned over the years flying several species of raptors and incorporating dogs and horses in falconry. We're truly honored to be able to do this series for Arizona and we hope you enjoy the rest of the episodes dedicated to some of Arizona's falconry heritage!

Science Says Eat More Beans Beans are delicious, high in protein, inexpensive, efficient to grow, and an absolute staple in so many cuisines. So why don't Americans eat more of them? The average American eats 7.5 pounds of beans annually, which is only a few cans of beans every year. The answer is complicated, but one thing is sure: Beans have a PR problem. Ira talks with Julieta Cardenas, a Future Perfect Fellow at Vox, who reported this story. If you're looking to chef it up, read some of the SciFri staff's favorite bean recipes. The World According To Sound: Feeding Time In this story from our friends at The World According to Sound, we'll take a sonic trip to Yellowstone National Park. You'll hear the sounds of two grizzlies feasting on a bison. It's very rare that a bear can take down an adult bison, but they will chow down on animals that are already dead, like if they were killed by wolves or a car. The World According to Sound is a live audio show, online listening series, and miniature podcast, created by Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett. Bees Have Feelings, Too Few pollinators have the charisma of bees, so much so that the phrase “save the bees” has become a calling card for those who consider themselves ecologically-conscious. There are more than 21,000 species of bees, ranging from the very recognizable bumblebees to the vibrant blue and green Augochloropsis metallica. Pollination ecologist Stephen Buchmann has studied bees for nearly fifty years, learning about everything from their natural behaviors to how they respond to puzzles. All of this has led him to a fascinating conclusion: bees are sentient, and they have feelings. Stephen joins Ira from Tucson, Arizona to talk about his new book, What a Bee Knows. Read an excerpt from the book here. Pinning Down The Origin Of Butterflies One of the highlights of being outdoors in warmer weather is spotting a delicate, colorful butterfly exploring the landscape. There are over 19,000 different species of butterflies around the world—and all of them evolved from some enterprising moth that decided to venture out in the daytime, around 100 million years ago. But just where that evolutionary fork in the road occurred has been a matter of scientific debate, with many researchers positing a butterfly origin in Australia or Asia. Writing this week in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, researchers report on a new phylogenetic map of butterfly evolution, a lepidopteran family tree, combining genetic data with information from fossils, plants, and geography to trace back the origin and spread of butterflies. They find that butterflies likely split from moths in what is now Central or North America, before spreading to South America, crossing oceans to Australia and Asia, and eventually spreading to Europe and Africa. Dr. Akito Kawahara, professor, curator, and director of the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity at the Florida Museum of Natural History and one of the authors of the report, joins Ira to talk about the findings and share some other surprising facts about butterflies.

“On Banjo” In sunny a San Diego high school somewhere in the 70s, while kids were listening to Aerosmith and Van Halen and Boston, Alison Brown was listening to bluegrass. She had started on guitar but gravitated to the banjo and by her teens, she was already pretty proficient on the instrument. She won first place at the Canadian National Banjo Championship, played a gig at the Grand Ole Opry and toured one summer with fiddler Stuart Duncan. After high school She headed to Harvard, knocked out an MBA at UCLA and then went to work as an Investment Banker. You know—the typical bluegrass story you hear all the time. Thinking music was a weekend thing, Brown had a nice balance going but then music decided to tip the scales. Alison Krauss flashed the bat signal for a banjo player and Brown answered the call, and gave up her Wall Street environs for a life in music. And what a life it has been. An internationally recognized virtuoso on banjo, Brown has played with Alison Krauss, Michelle Shocked, fronted her own Alison Brown Quartet, toured all over the world, from Japan to South America, along the way playing The Kennedy Center, the Newport Folk Festival, The Cambridge Folk Festival in England and the Galway Arts Festival in Ireland. With a Grammy in her trophy case along with multiple Grammy nominations, features on CBS Sunday Morning, NPRs All Things Considered and close to 15 critically lauded albums under her belt, including her fabulous new one No Banjo, Alison Brown is an artistic force. And what of On Banjo? Well, putting it simply, it's a stunner. A deftly played album filled with technical prowess, musical finesse and compositional dexterity, On Banjo is a song cycle that's celebratory, joyful and cathartic. Brown is the co-founder of Compass Records Group, she serves on the Board of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy and she's the co-chair of the Steve Martin Banjo Prize. She's kind of a big deal and guess what? She's as nice as can be. www.alisonbrown.com www.bombshellradio.com www.stereoembersmagazine.com www.embersarts.com www.alexgreenonline.com Twitter: @emberseditor IG: @emberspodcast Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Conservative Review with Daniel Horowitz
What you see at the border is not chaos. It is a methodically planned invasion that is perpetrated by global NGOs with the support of our own government. We're joined by famed war correspondent and former Green Beret Michael Yon, who briefs us on his conversation with migrants at all stages of the migration trail all over Central and South America. The Darien Gap in Panama is the linchpin to all migration from around the world and can easily be shut off. Yon reports on finding well-educated Chinese migrants who look a lot more like spies than desperate migrants fleeing persecution. He also warns of a growing epidemic in Panama of scabies, lice, drug-resistant tuberculosis, malaria, and dengue fever. Suddenly, the CDC is no longer concerned with public health and is not calling for a “lockdown” of this invasion. Why? Yon believes that the migration is an orchestrated tactic not just to dilute our country, but to aggravate shortages in food and other critical supplies. Learn more about your ad choices.

Thanks to Richard from NC for suggesting Titanomyrma! Further reading: 'Giant' ant fossil raises questions about ancient Arctic migrations A fossilized queen Titanomyrma ant with a rufous hummingbird (stuffed) for scale: Show transcript: Welcome to Strange Animals Podcast. I'm your host, Kate Shaw. This week we have a suggestion from Richard from North Carolina, who sent me an article about an extinct giant ant called Titanomyrma. This episode is short, but I think you'll find it interesting. We've talked about ants in previous episodes, most recently episode 185. Most ant colonies consist of a single queen ant who lays all the eggs for her colony, seasonally hatched males with wings who fly off as soon as they're grown, and worker ants. The worker ants are all female but don't lay eggs. Army ants have another caste, the soldier ant, which are much larger than the worker ants and have big heads and strong, sharp mandibles. In many species of ant, the worker ants are further divided into castes that are specialized for specific tasks. The biggest species of ant alive today is probably the giant Amazonian ant. The workers can grow over 1.2 inches long, or more than 3 cm, which is huge for an ant. It lives in South America in small colonies, usually containing less than 100 workers, and unlike most ants it doesn't have a queen. Instead, one of the workers mates with a male and lays eggs for the colony. The giant Amazonian ant can sting and its sting contains venom that causes intense pain for up to two days. Fortunately, you will probably never encounter these giant ants, and even if you do they're not very aggressive. Another contender for the biggest species of ant alive today is the Dorylus genus of army ants, also called driver ants, which we talked about in episode 185. It lives in Africa in colonies that have millions of members, and the queen is the largest ant known. A queen army ant can measure 2.4 inches long, or 63 millimeters, but worker ants are much smaller. Around 50 million years ago, giant ants related to modern driver ants lived in both Europe and North America. The genus is Titanomyrma and three species are known so far, found in Germany, England, Canada, and the American states of Tennessee and Wyoming. The Wyoming ant fossil was discovered years ago and donated to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, where it was stored in a drawer and forgotten about. In 2011 a curator found it and showed it to a paleoentomologist named Bruce Archibald. Dr. Archibald recognized it immediately as a fossilized queen ant even though it was the size of a hummingbird. He also realized it was very similar to a type of giant ant that once lived in Germany. The German discovery was the first Titanomyrma species discovered, and it's also the biggest known so far. The queen Titanomyrma gigantea grew up to 2.8 inches long, or 7 centimeters. Males grew up to 1.2 inches long, or 3 cm. The fossilized queen ants found have wings, with a wingspan of over 6 inches, or 16 cm. The other two known species are generally smaller, although still pretty darn big for ants.While they're not that much bigger than the living Dorylus queens, most of the size of a queen Dorylus ant comes from her enlarged abdomen. Titanomyrma ants were just plain big all over. Titanomyrma didn't have a stinger, so it's possible it used its mandibles to inflict bites, the way modern army ants do. It might also have sprayed formic acid at potential predators, as some ants do today. The biggest ants alive today all live in tropical areas, so researchers thought Titanomyrma probably did too. During the Eocene, the world was overall quite warm and parts of Europe were tropical. The northern hemisphere supercontinent Laurasia was in the process of breaking up, but Europe and North America were still connected by the Arctic. Even though the Arctic was a lot warmer 50 million years ago than it is now,
Broadcasting note: We're taking a few days off, but we'll be back on Wednesday. See you soon! Ryan Williams joins Fred in studio to go over the latest Creation Magazine (vol 45, no 2). On the cover is the Marmoset, a monkey that is known for its quick, jerky movements. The Marmoset is found in both Africa and South America, so the question is, how did it migrate there? Listen in to find out how evolutionists are now appealing to a concept that creationists knew all along! Ryan and Fred also talk about the future “evolution” of humans, as imagined by a 3D Model called ‘Mindy' with a clawed hand, a hunchback, a second eyelid, and more all due to the overuse of smartphones! While Ryan and Fred don't doubt certain negative impacts of too much smartphone use, they were quick to point out the flaws in yet another example of unscientific musings coming from the secular world. RSR also took delight in an email from one of our listeners regarding a recent science news article, “Where did Earth's water come from? Not melted meteorites, according to scientists”. Our astute listener did the math and showed that "... it would require a bombardment of the world's largest carbonaceous chondrites, falling at the heaviest rate ever recorded, 252 THOUSAND TIMES the conjectured evolutionary age of the solar system to bring the present weight of ocean water to earth... And by the way, I'M not the one that said 'The present is the key to the past.' " As our listener noted, it's another failed evolutionary fantasy and in the end, "there's nothing to see here!" We love our listeners!

Native America Calling - The Electronic Talking Circle
Indigenous activists in Central and South America are literally putting their lives on the line trying to protect their land and culture. Places like Brazil, Honduras, Colombia, and parts of Mexico are rife with murders and disappearances of Indigenous people speaking up to save their land and people from large scale mining operations, logging, and other extractive industries. In many cases, those responsible are never brought to justice. We'll explore the factors that contribute to the threat to Indigenous people standing up against corporate development. GUESTS María Martin, award-winning multimedia journalist, founding executive director of Latino USA, and director of GraciasVida Center for Media Nati Garcia (Maya Mam), capacity building manager for Cultural Survival Edson Krenak (Krenak), Cultural Survival lead on Brazil Karla Mendes, investigative and feature reporter for Mongabay and a Rainforest Investigations Fellow with the Pulitzer Center
When you buy something, it's an exchange. You expect to get something for your money. But what about when you give?Christians are called to be generous towards God's Kingdom— there's no question about that. But should we expect something in return? We'll talk about that on this Faith and Finance. Should we expect something in return for our generosity? The answer is a definite but qualified yes.2 Corinthians 9:6-8 tells us, “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.Now, “reaping bountifully” does not mean that God must reward you monetarily for your generosity. You cannot make God a debtor. He already owns everything. But it does mean that God will bless you for your generosity, but that blessing can come in any form that God chooses.You have a problem with your heart attitude when you expect— or demand— material blessing from God for your generosity. This takes the form of sins like greed and covetousness— not to mention arrogance— but also a gaping lack of gratitude for what God has already given you.BEWARE OF “NAME IT AND CLAIM IT”This is far more prevalent than you might think. Consider the so-called Prosperity Gospel, with its doctrine of “name it and claim it.” Its teachers quote the Bible freely, but twist the meaning of certain verses to support their claims.An example of this is James 4:2, which reads, “You do not have because you do not ask God.” The Prosperity Gospel would have you believe that all you have to do is ask God for something— anything— and He'll give it to you. But it ignores the very next verse that says, “You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.”1 John 5:14 tells us the right way to bring our supplications to God. It says, “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” When your heart aligns with God's, you can never ask for anything He doesn't already want to give you.Matthew 19:29 is also twisted around to mean that God must reward your giving with greater financial reward. It reads, “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name's sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life.”But the hundredfold increase that this verse promises is not material wealth, but fellowship with thousands of other believers, here and in eternity. Yes, there is a return, and far greater than anything we could ever give, but it's not money.In fact, the Bible, and Jesus in particular, promised something quite different— that there is a cost for being His disciple. In John 15:20, Jesus warns, “Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” Jesus promises tribulation, not prosperity.Make no mistake, by any name, the Prosperity Gospel is an aberration of orthodox Christian theology. It claims that God will reward you with material wealth according to your faith. So as your faith increases, so will your wealth. Of course, Scripture promises no such thing.The Prosperity Gospel is a modern heresy. It crept into a few local congregations and tent revivals after World War II, but eventually found its way to radio and television, leading untold numbers astray by the 1980s and giving the word “televangelism” a negative connotation.And while it started in the U.S., it's now found around the world. Not surprisingly, it has spread faster in areas with great poverty, such as Africa, South America, and anywhere people struggle to make a living.As with any false doctrine, we must be vigilant to keep the Prosperity Gospel out of our churches. Theologian John Piper has identified several common traits to watch out for— here are two:The absence of doctrine related to suffering. Remember Jesus' warnings about the cost of discipleship.The absence of detailed exposition of Scripture. In other words, “cherry picking” verses without giving their contextTo sum up, you should expect something in return for your generosity— God's blessing that enables you to do good works that glorify Him— not material wealth for your own pleasure.On this program, Rob also answers listener questions: What are the best conservative investment options for a couple in their 70s?

The Earth Transformed: An Untold History by Peter Frankopan https://amzn.to/3M5n5Qk A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF THE YEAR: A revolutionary new history that reveals how climate change has dramatically shaped the development—and demise—of civilizations across time *Detailing many years of extensive research, endnotes for this edition run to more than 200 pages. They are available online via a link contained in the book.* Global warming is one of the greatest dangers mankind faces today. Even as temperatures increase, sea levels rise, and natural disasters escalate, our current environmental crisis feels difficult to predict and understand. But climate change and its effects on us are not new. In a bold narrative that spans centuries and continents, Peter Frankopan argues that nature has always played a fundamental role in the writing of history. From the fall of the Moche civilization in South America that came about because of the cyclical pressures of El Niño to volcanic eruptions in Iceland that affected Egypt and helped bring the Ottoman empire to its knees, climate change and its influences have always been with us. Frankopan explains how the Vikings emerged thanks to catastrophic crop failure, why the roots of regime change in eleventh-century Baghdad lay in the collapse of cotton prices resulting from unusual climate patterns, and why the western expansion of the frontiers in North America was directly affected by solar flare activity in the eighteenth century. Again and again, Frankopan shows that when past empires have failed to act sustainably, they have been met with catastrophe. Blending brilliant historical writing and cutting-edge scientific research, The Earth Transformed will radically reframe the way we look at the world and our future.

Julia Cathrine Monnin Ducray. Born Julia Monnin, her family was from Switzerland and they had emigrated to Pennsylvania. Living next to them in Pennsylvania, was the Ducray family. The Ducray's had boarded a steamship in France in 1839. The journey was almost fatal for 15 year old Jean-Baptiste Ducray, his parents and eight brothers and sisters. Southeast of Nova Scotia, the steamship began taking on water. The passengers and crew feared they would sink and began to throw all of their possessions overboard. The Ducray family threw overboard their wooden chest containing $2,000 in gold and everything else they had brought with them. Jean-Baptiste's mother kept only a wooden cross bearing an ivory carving of Jesus. The ship sank, and everyone from the ship was left shipwrecked on what is now known as Sable Island. They went days without food. They were starving, crazed. A passenger from the ship overheard the ship's crew planning to kill and eat Jean-Baptiste and his father. He hid them by burying them in sand. Luckily, only a day later, a passing ship rescued them. They arrived safely, settling in Pennsylvania, next to The Monnin family. Julia and Jean-Baptiste Ducray fell in love and were married. When Jean-Baptiste and his brother Jean Claude went West to mine gold in California, it was barely a year into the gold rush. He was 25 and Jean Claude was 16. They took the Isthmus of Panama route. This is the same trip made by Belle Cora, detailed in my book. The route saved thousands of miles and avoided the trip around the southern tip of South America's Cape Horn. Starting in New York, they made a 2,000 mile voyage by ship to the Port of Chagres on the eastern Caribbean coast of Panama at the mouth of the Chagres river. They took a bungo, a type of Panamanian canoe for $5 (just under 200 bucks today) for a 4 day river journey through the crocodile and jaguar bearing jungle. That was the easy part. The men rode a 50-mile trail on mules through the steaming malaria, yellow fever, and cholera ridden jungle to the small outpost in Panama City. They waited there and caught a ship to San Francisco. Many forty-niners did not make this journey. The brothers had now survived two deadly passages together. Upon arrival, like many immigrants of the time, the brothers Americanized their names. John B, and John C. Ducray. The brothers traveled to Nevada City and set up camp along the Oregon Ravine on Oregon Hill. Julia arrived soon, making the journey by wagon. The couple invested in mining and bought properties. In the spring of 1866 on a claim bought for $36 (almost $1300 today) and while cleaning up an old mudslide on the property, Julia's husband found 265 ounces of gold. Equalling over $5000, equivalent to almost $179k in 2023. Julia's husband Jean Baptiste, or John B, was a descendent of one of the Ducray Nine brothers, known for saving the life of the French King "Henry the Great" in the late 1590's. These nine brothers were knighted and awarded with villages besides the Jura Mountains in France. Their new villages contained hills, forests, orchards and beautiful meadows with flocks. John B was born in a medieval chateau at one of these family villages. It had a fountain, a Roman aqueduct and a mill, powered by the creek that ran through the village. He lived there until he was fifteen and learned about engineering the water flow and studied the geology of the nearby caves and quarry. His knowledge helped him later design wing dams and sluices for gold mining and irrigation on his own property. And his interest in geology and hydrology led to consulting on the first reservoir built for Nevada City's municipal water system. On 35 acres of mining-stripped bedrock in Nevada City, the couple built a fourteen room, two-story home with five bedrooms and large parlors upstairs and downstairs on Orchard and upper broad streets and re-created the nearly self-sufficient French farm that John B had grown up on. They planted vineyards and orchards of walnut, apple, pear, and almond trees. They had a single milk cow for providing milk, butter, and cheese. They kept honey bees and maintained four acres planted in clover for the cow and bees. They had a huge basement beneath the house that was useful for storing their produce and John B.'s wines and brandies. Julie planted large "cabbage roses" around the home. It is said that the 150-year-old pear tree John B. planted there continues to bear delicious, giant Bartlett pears. John B. and Julia's home and orchards on Orchard Street are included in the first map of Nevada City, which was hand-drawn in 1869. Orchard Street was in fact named for John B.'s orchards. For decades the couple would exhibit wines, brandies, honey in comb, peaches, pears, grapes, walnuts, almonds, buckwheat, string beans and potatoes at the local and State Fairs. They bartered or paid in gold for everything that they could not produce themselves. Julia and John B. were fast friends with the French pioneer nurseryman, horticulturist Felix Gillet upon his arrival in town. Felix had opened the town's first barber shop which sold French fineries including pens, stationery, and toys on Commercial Street, just below Pine Street. The couple inspired Felix to plant orchards, and he eventually established a world-renowned 20 acre nursery on Aristocracy Hill. (Barren Hill Nursery) Nursery Street in Nevada City was named for Felix's nursery there. Julia and John B. adopted niece Theresa and raised her as their own. The three of them led a happy life. They attended Saint Canice Catholic Church that was recently built and often went to the state fairs, often accompanied by Felix Gillet, who wrote about the events. Gillet often wrote magazine articles glorifying the Ducray's farm, orchards and produce. So did many newspapers of the time. John B passed away after a battle with pneumonia. Penicillin had not yet been developed. Julia was so heartbroken by his loss, she passed away four months later. They were laid to rest in Pioneer Cemetery, across Orchard Street from their home. They left all their properties to 21 year old adopted daughter Theresa Julia. Felix Gillet and Theresa Julia grew a bond through grief and sorrow and were married. The couple did not mind their difference in age, Felix was 32 years older than Julia Theresa, or height, Theresa Julia was taller. Theresa Julia took her middle name, perhaps in homage to her beloved Aunt. After they married, Felix added the second-story addition to his established Barren Hill Nursery on Nursery Street (named for his nursery) on Aristocracy Hill. Felix and Julia Theresa remained married for 17 years until Felix passed away in 1908. He also left his properties to Julia Theresa. She ran his Barren Hill Nursery (also known as Felix Gillet Nursery), with the help of head nurseryman George Dulac. Dulac was the son of the Ducrays' and Felix's good friends, Nevada City pioneers Louis and Manuela Dulac. She and George grew up in school together. They had been childhood friends since her arrival in Nevada City. They were married a year after Gillet's death. Theresa are laid to rest in Pioneer Cemetery, beside Jean-Baptiste, Julia Catherine and Felix.
