    When I first read “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett I was kind of the same way. That book went everywhere with me. To work, bed, probably even the bathroom lol. It was just that good I couldn’t put it down.

    A week? Good Lord, I couldn’t do that. I get anxious as I get to the end of the stack, so don’t want it to end too quickly.

    You know what I like? Discovering a book series where you’re starting out 5-6 books behind. Harry Potter is a good example, I didn’t read it until the first four books were out.
  4. 13 Goat Symptoms You Should NEVER Ignore

    Just a simple change in behavior is what helped us realize Cal was sick last year. Know your animals’ quirks and normal behavior, it could save their life!
  5. There is absolutely no doubt our boys know the color of the coffee can or feed scoop I bring their crimped oats in! And they each have their own behavioral quirks. Brownie, the more dominant of the three, has to rub his head against me. Meanwhile Cal has a habit of taking my finger in his mouth. I’m not sure why, but it could be from when we were force feeding him molasses water when he was on deaths door last year. Tanner, he just kinda hangs out and waits for the food or scratches while the other two are fighting over who gets my attention LOL
  6. Are You A Locavore?

    Well anymore it seems like no where is safe. Pesticides from here, E. coli from there...

    No kidding, it was more winter back in November. And the dummies on the news keep complaining about when it’s in the 20’s and loving the 40 degree temps. We’re in the northeast guys, it’s Winter. This slogging around in the cold rain and mud sucks. We just got back from taking care of the neighbors horses. We mucked our the stalls a little quicker today so they could come in out of the rain sooner.

    Freezing veggies is pretty easy ya know.

    I just started reading Auschwitz: A Doctor's Eyewitness Accountby Miklós Nyiszli. Also got a copy of A Craftsman's Legacy: Why Working with Our Hands Gives Us Meaningby Eric Gorges. We watch his show on PBS and enjoy it, so my wife got me to the book to read.
  10. Are You A Locavore?

    We're probably not as much as we could be, but we sure contribute a fair amount. Of course when your family gardens, has chickens, honeybees, etc., how much do you need to buy?
  11. Cheap Fun year Round Treat For Your Flock

    I usually just cut a head in half and toss it on the floor for them. I may try this though, just for something to do.

    I really wish Spring would get here so I can get out and play in the dirt, get new pens ready and others rehabilitated.

    I highly recommend The Way I Heard It by Mike Rowe, especially if you're a fan of Paul Harvey's radio show. There were a few stories I knew the ending to already but only a couple. Some of them really surprised me. I hope he does another one, it was a great bed time read. And of course you can't read it and NOT hear it in his voice.
  14. How To Make A Terrarium

    Might be a good way to stave of some Winter blahs.
  15. Cows Talk To Each Other About Weather And Food

    Somehow the idea of a couple heifers out in a pasture complaining about the grass is amusing. On the other hand, it makes me wonder what they convey when they're stuck in a mud and manure filled area?
