Typically, I think– and I could be delusional– when I have a point I want to make about something cultural or political, I lead up to it. And I oft times invoke crappy old stuff in the lead up. Not so in this post. Oh! Don’t worry! There will be plenty of crappy old stuff
A dead male dung beetle. As it turns out, in my haste to manage the fly population, I’ve gone and killed off some of the good guys. Note to self: IDENTIFY first.
Substitute grilled turkey legs and wings for chicken Mr. Big Food was a bit under the weather this past weekend but he still managed to grill some turkey leg quarters and wings. At the time, however, neither of us were too keen on enjoying them. So the grilled turkey parts were just sitting in the

The current definition. I haven’t looked at my crappy old dictionary entries. The autonomy of the individual. Let’s see here, what individuals do we have? This is easy. Mr. Big Food, Suzy, Rocky, Missy, me. (There is a cat, but– much as we love her– she doesn’t count in March.) (If I were smarter,
Not a bad photo at full (36X) zoom. Who most enjoys spending time in the pasture, Rocky, Missy, or I? The Eastern Meadowlark has a very distinctive call. You can listen to it here.
It’s everywhere. Yesterday at 8:30am we got in the truck and drove to Starkvegas. I dropped Mr. Big Food off, turned around, drove back to the Farm, turned around, drove back to Starkvegas, picked Mr. Big Food up, turned right, turned left and headed up to Tupelo. We then turned left and drove northwest to

For example, how can you spend 15-20 minutes* playing around in a farm pond filled with rain and ground water, and turtle poopy — a pond that is in the process of having an algal explosion, by the way– and then object to being hosed off with clean city water?~~ * Weather permitting, each day
Onions, carrots, cabbage, onions, carrots, broccoli, onions, carrots, [brassica]… . I’m planting this weekend. Throw in some lettuce & a radish or two, some peas/beans, summer & winter squash, a cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant, and you’re good to go. Don’t forget the okra and corn. This is my third season veggie garden here at
and Missy shedding her German Shepherd undercoat and all, we agreed that we should crank it down and run the A/C for a few minutes. It wasn’t so much about the temperature– the house is structured such that it takes a while to warm up/cool down, which is good. It’s been unseasonably warm, and the
without an appointment! What a joke! [Background: The “help desk” in the back of an Apple Store is called the “Genius Bar.”] The country bumpkin is ignored beyond her tolerance level for poor manners from Geniuses and finally secures an appointment for later in the day. (The bumpkin can read a calendar even if it
I spent more time than I otherwise might have today learning a bit about Warren G. Harding, the 29th American President. Lest you think that’s all there was to my day, I present a few lines about a few other things that would have been post-worthy, had I not been learning about President Harding. I
Indeed, we were. This time we will be hanging in the ‘burbs. I hear tell there’s an Apple Store in Germantown. Maybe the Geniuses can fix my computer.

Tom was flabergasted that someone in comments suggested that Obama was the worst American president. (Tom lives in Oxford, Mississippi which probably explains a lot– LaFayette County is not
Having asserted my dominance over the canines, I have a few minutes to do some reading. I came across this which made me chuckle. … revealed an extent of political immorality in Washington such has had no parallel in recent times.
