If you’ve lived here, you get it. Leaves.
You may not know this, but I am connected, politically speaking. Like, man. You should see my inbox! A former President of the United States of America has emailed me. As have THREE serving UNITED STATES SENATORS!!!!!! They want me to fight for the cause of Liberty! That’s a fight I want to fight. I am more
Currier & Ives Chronicles of America (1968, p156) I confess, I am not a true Civil War buff. I am not even a pretend Civil War buff. But I’m pretty sure that the Civil War as depicted by Currier & Ives was a lot less bloody than the real war. When the Battle of Corinth— not

Daily bag limit is eight but according to the MS Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks website, “[s]quirrel populations are expected to be less abundant going into the 2015 – 2016 fall hunting season compared to last year.” The previous year’s hardwood mast crop is often
What do you think? I could write a pamphlet on Freedom or Liberty or The Sovereignty of the Individual Data Point. I’m willing to do my part! You?
Time to start thinking about a book(s) for October’s Crappy Old Book of the Month series.
I should have learned my lesson. Stupid Moon. I was all set up and ready to record history! And then I remembered that the Sun is where it’s at. That’s Ken’s pole light down there on the bottom right. The moon is by the tree. It is too bad for me that we’ve had 40
via Wired dot com LATE ON SUNDAY evening, September 27, the Earth will slide precisely between the sun and the moon, throwing the satellite into a rusty red shadow.

“The Life of a Fireman: The Metropolitan System” from Currier & Ives Chronicles of America (p128; image courtesy Library of Congress) The house is still burning. I can see the smoke from the Farm. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on, though. The firetrucks were gone last evening when we drove past but this morning
Because sometimes you just must ask, “What the flock, Mon?” This evening we enjoyed a delightful dinner of Tropical Chicken, Lime Buttered Tortillas, Rice Verde, and Pineapple Salsa. Today a house in the village burnt down. The house is literally– and I do know what ‘literally’ literally means– is a block away from the new

The Tree-Toad James Whitcomb Riley “‘S cur’ous-like,” said the tree-toad, “I’ve twittered fer rain all day; And I got up soon, And hollered tel noon– But the sun, hit blazed away, Tell I jest clumb down in a crawfish-hole, Weary at hart, and sick at soul! “Dozed away fer an hour, And I tackled the
I know you City Mice are right proud of your uber-cool horse-and-driver-less buggies, and your monorail…MonoRail…MONORAIL…MONORAIL and all. And I suspect you’ve never driven– errr, I mean, been driven– on a dirt road. But out here in the country we Country Mice sure do love our “Morning Rides” over hill & dale & dusty trail.
