Aren’t we Animals?


Yes! So… can we tell when winter is coming and how long it will be, etc…….without looking at the Farmer’s Almanac, and googling it?

Now the Dog Nests!?


      I don’t know that much about dogs, but what is going on here???     Our Rottweiler (the one we did emergency surgery on) is ‘nesting’ everywhere.                     Everywhere!!       She’s not pregnant…that I know of (why did I just put “that I know of”?). I mean that […]

Today I’m Seeding in the Snow!


Brrrrhh! The snow is still coming 20 inches or about 45? cm. This is exercise wading through it up to my knees. The ground is covered and insulated with it. The soil hasn’t frozen yet. If the frost doesn’t go in it will have serious consequences. Their will be a lot of rutting around the […]
