Knifleyan asks questions from safety of California
Curious in San Mateo, CA
Who can shed some light on the term "Dug Hill," where the Reindeer Moss grows?
The hill at the intersection of Hwy 206 and Sanders Ridge Road has always been known as the Dug Hill, so that makes at least two such hills and could there be others?
In the days of my youth when the secondary roads in the area were almost impassable in winter and early spring, I remember when the local farmers hauled and distributed creek gravel in a futile attempt to repair the roads.
Asks what Magistrates do
So, I wonder if the "Dug Hill" term comes from the time when certain roadbeds were hand carved from the terrain by local residents? That would be in the dark ages before County Magistrates. Was there really a time before Magistrates? What exactly does Magistrates DO, and why does it take so many to run the County?
Speaking of which: Why is the Barnett's Creek Road and others, still only partially paved? AND who decided that the connector road from Sanders Ridge Road to Barnett's Creek Road should be erroneously labeled as the "Gennie Hill Road," while everyone knows that since the gods were mere pups, that it is the Jenny Hill Road?
The good news is that the Reindeer Moss (botanical designation unknown), is indigenous to them thar hills and hollers - and that's a fact.
How many Magistrates does it take to screw in a light bulb?
