You know where it’s from. I’ll put the link up after coffee.
“Here Jack!” Or, if you are of a mind, “Here Kyle!”* And more often than not, he comes– especially if you have a carrot in your hand. The other day we drove the truck into the pasture and he came right up. I did learn that petting him across the barbed wire was foolish and
A. Drudge Work Monday and there’s no getting around it today. Mr. Big Food tied up one of the kitchen trash bags in preparation for the taking out of the trash and then went out to cut The Peninsula. I was employed in pepper picking. When he returned to the kitchen, Mr. Big Food discovered

Came as a complete surprise this morning! Male. Four or five years old. Very gentle– can pet him and lead him around on a leash. So we’re in the donkey business!

Amateur Radio. Mr. Big Food is on board, too. We are going to get out amateur radio licenses and some equipment. Blog silence is thus explained. It’s all quite interesting. I’m taking notes. SueK– I found this to be the best bird’s eye view introduction to ham radio. Almost jargon free and very accessible for
I just stepped outside and heard a siren! Almost unheard of out here.
Any talk of saving culture, or restoring culture, begins with a defense of the humanities. Any hope of cultural revival equally begins with a re-emergence of the humanities. Any hope to truly celebrate—though not uncritically—the human person rests with being drenched in the dewfall of the humanities. The death of the humanities really does mean
NOAA weather radio is beeping at us. Flash flood warning. Up to three inches of rain has already fallen. Mr. Big Food remarks that he will not be cutting today. I need coffee.
We went to Jackson last week. Stopped for gas on the way home about 10 miles from the exit we normally take. Mr. Big Food suggested rather than getting back on the interstate, we cut the hypotenuse on the back roads. Very pleasant.

In reply to SueK, who commented that she could not fathom 20″ of rain– what’s forecast for NOLA. 20″ is indeed a lot of rain. We could get up to 10″. Here’s something I once had my students do– a very long time ago– when teaching both metric system, and some environmental biology. Take some paved
I swear to God, those folks in Louisiana make us Mississippians look down right intelligent some days. Let’s go look and see if the iPad has a therefore sign. It does not. But you know what I’m talking about. That little triangle of dots that indicates, e.g., Hurricane therefore burn ban WTH?
One day last winter, when the dogs and I were walking around the edge of the water shed in the Piney Woods, I looked up and saw the trail cam! Right where Daughter C and the J-Man had left it. Took it down and brought it inside. Earlier this spring, when I set up the
Run on sentence. I am confused about the context. Must be Drudge related. UPDATE. This is such typical hyper-BS. It’s New Orleans. It has more water than land, and a significant portion of the land is below sea level. And it rained! Oh boy! Why are they out walking around hamming it up for the
Only one minor disaster. Most of these are old recipes, and call for a lot of baking soda. The last batch we made sat out for a good 30-40 minutes before I popped it in the oven. I noticed that the loaf pans seemed fuller than when I’d filled them. Ten minutes later, and from
