Back in the day, it was believed that a goat had a calming effect on high-strung racehorses so owners would put a goat in the stall with their horse before a race. Unscrupulous opponents would sometimes steal the completion's goat in the hopes of making that horse lose the race thus the phrase "don't let them get your goat" referring to stopping someone from doing something to upset you.

Pittsburgh was named #1 Food City in the US in 2015 by Zagot. One section of the 'Burgh stands out as the heart of its foodie movement, The Strip. Sounds like a naughty adult club but it's PG rated, mostly. It a mile and a half long section of Pittsburg filled with every type of ethnic restaurant and some drinking that will take you back in history. For those of you who want to do it yourself, you will find several farmer's markets scattered through The Strip. The produce looks fresh and is local.

My favorite Grapevine historic/agri adventure is Nash Farm, the oldest operating farmstead in Tarrant County. It all began in 1843 when General Sam Houston negotiated a treaty of peace between the Republic of Texas and 10 American Indian nations with claims on the area. The following year, the first settlers started arrived in covered wagons. In 1859 Thomas Jefferson Nash came from Kentucky to the Grape Vine Prairie to create a better life for his family. He found a piece of farmland he loved and bought the farm for $500. It proved a good investment. Thomas, his family, and his brother, William, ran the farm for many years.
