As are Mr. Big Food, Daughter C., neighbor Ken, D.C. and his Piglet coworkers, Christine at the Dollar General, Bro Mike and his congregants, Nancy at the US Post Office, Jesse & Mary at the welding shop, all of the folk who will come out to the Farm for the Event this weekend, and let’s
We’ve We’re tired. We worked all weekend. I had the tiller out. I’m fixin’ to plant some okra. Mr. Big Food did some hard cuttin’. We’re having company. Or so I hear. A. Leland is to Suzy’s left. We’re not in touch with Christopher and Lindsey anymore. But the rest check in from time to
Editing funny video of funny dogs barking while funny dogs are in the room. They bark at themselves barking. It’s metabarking! Funny stuff. ~~ I should sew some valances for the windows in this room. I like naked windows, but I think the room would feel cozier to guests if there were valances. Unlike sheers–
The Ruger Bearcat The second installment of Bob Owens’ series is up over at PJMedia. This one focuses on taking a non-shooting beginners class to learn basic gun safety and so on. He then goes on to extoll the many virtues of the .22 caliber long gun and handgun. If your eventual goal is to
Looking forward to seeing you!” read the invitation. We are having a Thing next weekend. Rumor has it A. Leland is coming. He better not disappoint.
That, Dear Readers, is an example of a logical fallacy known as the “Anecdotal Fallacy”: You used a personal experience or an isolated example instead of a sound argument or compelling evidence.It’s often much easier for people to believe someone’s testimony as opposed to understanding complex data and variation across a continuum. Quantitative scientific measures
Just kidding. It’s a busy Friday. I’m heading to the metropolis of Starkvegas. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for something interesting. Taken on my first trip to Starkvegas. Enjoy your afternoon!

(That’s how the Wikipedia entry begins. Doesn’t sound very much like an encyclopedia entry to me.) He is an American Storyteller. ~~ The Redneck
One of two loaves of “Creative Cooking Sweet Soda Breads” (and variations) about to experience -4 degrees F. The Word Doc that is the recipe for Creative Cooking Sweet Soda Bread in Mr. Big Food’s Big Food Manual and Survivalist Flourishing Guide begins, “Soda breads: Bread, by definition, is a baked product made with dough
She’s stockpiling. (What an interesting word.) She’s hoarding. She awaits The End Times. I won’t fault her. She is a very messy housekeeper. Pretty much everything on the right side was piled on the food on the left side. Seeing how much of her food Rocky eats, I don’t blame her one bit for wanting
“What would be more of a blow … is not teaching our kids the values of working on a farm,” said Jeff Clack, Cherokee County (Kansas) Farm Bureau president when asked to comment on “a proposal from the Obama administration to prevent children from doing farm chores.” Read the article at The Daily Caller here.
home everything. Those flowers are micro-greens gone to seed.
I think it’s a Ford Mustang. Yesterday I mentioned the little hellions who had no respect for property. Today Rocky & I were tilling up the front “flower bed” and dug up a few cars– three so far. Rocky likes playing with toy cars! Apparently, at one time there actually were flowers in this “flower
This will be brief, and there will be no photo. Rocky was bored with the Pond Pasture and asked to go somewhere different today. That’s easy! To the North Pasture! Setting aside that we had to hopscotch around the fire ant hills, it began quite nicely. There was scat for Rocky to examine, and I
You go ahead and Learn More if you dare. $5,100,000,000 annual budget and this is the best they can come up with for a banner? Who are they targeting? Where are Kermit and the Kids? What ever. [UPDATE: I have no idea what’s going on with the photos. I’m seeing the ones below the fold
They were collected in The Delta, specifically, in Greenwood, Mississippi. According to the US Census, Greenwood has a population of just over 15,000 folks, 72% of whom have graduated from high school (5% fewer than Mississippi total), and 19% of whom have a bachelor’s degree or higher (same as Mississippi total). The median household income
I’m actually o.k. with some agency of the Federal Government collecting data on the weather. I would voluntarily donate $1 every year to fund such an agency. Imagine what would happen if we were able to vote on every line item in the Federal budget, assuming there is one some day. It would be fun
I need to work through Before and After more quickly. If I had, I’d be able to correct this photo by now. Ahh. They are expecting Daughter C. and Mr. Big Food to come driving up the driveway any time now. Their expectations will go unfulfilled this evening.
‘Burpees Golden’ and “Cylindra’ (Seed from Victory Seed, which I recommend.) Those with the red stems are ‘Cylindra.’ The seed packet tells me ‘Cylindra’ will produce 6-8″ long roots ideal for slicing. ‘Burpee’s Golden’ will produce sweet dark golden/deep yellow beets. (How you can claim a beet is “sweet” is beyond me.) Immature beet tops
There’s a gas station in town that has been closed for some time but the sign is still advertising Regular at $2.859/gal. The truck has a 36 gallon tank. Normally, I fill up when it’s about 1/2 empty– it hurts less. But what with driving to MEM and being anxious to get back to the
