WELCOME !

WELCOME ! First, I am not a representative or affiliated nor associated with the OC Fair. I am just a fan of state fairs, in particular those around southern California and enjoy blogging about my experience(s) at the fair(s), and in particular, for this blog, the OC Fair; and at the same time I am a Christian evangelist dedicated to bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ everywhere I go, hence the title of this blog. But I do what I do in a way that is discreet & gracious, and you might not know by seeing me in passing that I am an evangelist at work (ie no big hand-held signs or pamphlets in hand etc; not that I think such style is wrong but it simply doesn't work for me as a solo evangelist). Mostly what you will find here are simply pics of what I observed at the OC Fair and my evangelism is sometimes

"post-evangelism"
as you will see. May God be with you and bless you and I hope you believe in the Father-Son-&-HolySpirit ! The blog begins at the bottom and scrolls up, from the first day of the fair, to the last

8/1/13 CAMELS @ OC FAIR & CAMEL-MILKING EXHIBITION

This guy & his wife has a camel farm near san diego (oasis camel farm, seehttp://www.cameldairy.com/ )...says that camels are different than cows in terms of milking..they will only give milk to their OWN babies..and only if the environment is right...and tthen for only about 90 seconds at a time.

151

.so milking them for commercial purposes is a little more tricky..and they are one of the few in the united states to actually do so..they make some lip balm and a few other products from the camel milk, but not yet milk for drinking (although it sounds like that's something planned for the future if they can work it out).

152

These were "one-hump" camels (ie dromedary)) as opposed to two-hump (bactrian)...and you need a saddle to ride them (saddles shown at end of this video) . One of the camels still had some of it's "winter fur" on its back which he says he left on to show how easy it is to pull off..and pulled out a small swatch.

153

so he did manage to get some milk from one of the camels and actually drank some of it from a jar straight from the camel ! wow ! says he loves it.
