“My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor.” – Phyllis Diller

This evening I cooked a meal for the family, attempting to use food from our stores and meat that we produced ourselves.  I selected some meat from my freezer, and suspected that it was goose or goat.  You see, I failed to write the contents of the freezer bag on the outside, so it was Read more about “My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor.” – Phyllis Diller[…]

“I long for the countryside. That’s where I get my calm and tranquillity.” – Emilia Clarke

I lost two of my chickens this week.  One of them was a chick that I had raised from the day it hatched from the egg.  The other was an older one that I bought fully grown last year.  I lost the older one on Sunday night or Monday morning.  On recollection I remember that Read more about “I long for the countryside.

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” – Thomas Paine

I thought I might post a few links to some very interesting news articles I have come across.  Through conversations I have had with Kitty and people I work with I realised that some of this information could be overlooked and I feel that it is of importance.

“We feel free when we escape – even if it be but from the frying pan to the fire.” – Eric Hoffer

I realised last night that I forgot to write about an interesting development with my rabbits.  I mentioned in my post on 23 May that my black Rabbit is happy living in the first Rabbit hutch I built.  Apparently I was wrong about that.  I recently went to feed my rabbits one evening when I Read more about “We feel free when we escape – even if it be but from the frying pan to the fire.” – Eric Hoffer[…]

“There are no secrets that time does not reveal.” – Jean Racine

Considering that I am now feeling motivated, and it is almost half way through 2013, I felt that it was time to make some more progress on completing my 13 Skills.  Another of my targets in 13 Skills was to establish a network and work on my networking skills.  This is a bit of a Read more about “There are no secrets that time does not reveal.” – Jean Racine[…]

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?” – Albert Einstein

This weekend I have completed another of my 13 skills – Animal Husbandry.  I initially started with a simple goal, and my plan reflected this. “I have lost too many chicks and ducklings in the last two weeks due to in attentive mothers.  I have taken in the survivors to raise myself. I have also Read more about “A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?” – Albert Einstein[…]
