"this is not a miracle"
I watched Our Vines Have Tender Grapes this week. Not at all a bad movie but one weird thing- I always heard that cows would leave a burning barn, though the ones in this movie just stood there and had to be shot.
So I looked it up, and by gosh, it certainly does look like cows have to be chased out. So much for that "cows-are-smarter-than-horses" factoid. (PS - this story was heart-warming: "The farmers say it's rare that livestock survive a fire like this. And to people like Pagel, this is not a miracle or a heroic thing; it is just what farmers do. It's what good neighbors do.")
