My absence has since been occupied by work in the realm of physical laboring on the land, involving gardener’s net, as opposed to the internet.

Mom and I constructed a fair enough fence around the garden in order to keep our produce pure from the presence of animals. The posts are slender logs from felled trees, as are the beams used for the raised beds. We used plain, plastic gardener’s net as the fencing material. It’s nothing stunning, but at least it is decent and rustic.

As for the chicken coop, plans have been altered. The logs will suffice for another building, when we have the time. For now, the pressure and anticipation from the young chickens has finally influenced us to choose a more convenient outlet – a pre-fabbed, 8′ x 8′ miniature barn, which is to be delivered on Tuesday.

Yesterday’s errands consisted of purchasing a feeder and waterer, as well as many tomato, pepper and marigold plants (and enriched soil). The weather has been pleasant and windy – until last night, when we received a good rain.

We needed the rain, as it has washed away a good deal of the ubiquitous yellow pollen (though I had to clean out the hen’s water bucket – the dingy yellow wouldn’t do, in my opinion). It also watered the pasture, which was recently seeded well with a new pasture mix of grasses and clover and so forth.

I have plenty of writing and web designing work to keep me busy for the time being. I have some Shakespeare and Chemistry to attend to on top of that.

Farewell….

GOD BLESS,

Oh…
Please help me to understand this (this kinda thing fascinates me).

You got both the domain and your hosting thru Yahoo???
Is Site Builder an online program or did you buy/download it?

A language editer is like FrontPage, DreamWeaver, Nvu, or CoffeeCup.
Have you ever heard of any of those?

How? …well, I couldn’t have done it without JoeM’s help.
He helped me get my hosting and set up the databases so I could have an online store.
He is VERY good at what he does and he’s VERY well priced!

Why? I’ve been studding the operating system, Linux for the last three years.
I wanted to share a little of what I know about it (and I wanted to make some money).
I’ve always wanted to start some kind of business and God opened the doors for this so I just went with it.
🙂

When? Umm… I’ve been thinking and planning it out since March ’06. But the site went up in …I think November.

It’s no where near done. But I’m getting there.

I think it’s cool that you guys live on so much land!
We had 7 acres in Ca. and I loved it!

Thanks for your comment!

Hmmm… that’s very interesting.
I should look into it.

Oh, I’m glad you want to trade!

My site can only take ads that are 468×60

And the ads on my blog can only be 60px wide.
I don’t care how long!

🙂

What about your site and blog? What sizes do you allow?

Thanks for the comment.
