    How is your vet?

    We recently switched vets (for our pets) because we were unhappy with the one we had. Our local vet retired and sold the business to another vet. They jacked the prices on everything and are so impersonal. Our large animal vet is great! I hope he never retires! His daughter is now coming along...

    Politics Over The Virus

    I check out CNN and FoxNews daily and there is always something about the virus. I think that it seems like less because President Trump and the taskforce isn't giving a daily briefing anymore, possibly?

    Aggressive pig!

    We have eight pigs and one of them just started acting all aggressive. I would say it's been happening for a week now. We did just add three, we had five. The aggressive pig was one of the original ones. He isn't hurting the others but I feel like he is "pushy" and he tries to show us who the...

    USDA Continues to Move SNAP Participants Forward

    This is great! I really hope that people receiving benefits will take advantage of these opportunities to gain skills. I think any program that helps people gain skills is a great one.

    4-H or girl/boy scouts

    Well we let the kids decide. One chose scouts, the other 4-H. I laughed but we will do it. I'll keep you updated on how they like the groups. My husband wanted them to both be in the same thing, but I am okay with them not.

    Bartering as part of business

    I absolutely see it coming back. I think for us country farmers it's always kind of been a thing. We help each other out at no cost. I can see it happening again for others now too. When you can't get what you need due to shortages you trade.

    Irritated with some small equipment (tools)

    Honestly I was talking about a couple of DeWALT tools. I bought him a new impact wrench and cordless drill. It wasn't a combo pack, they were stand alone products. They had no battery! We had to go to Lowe's the next day and buy the rechargeable big battery pack.

    No COVID cert?

    Honestly I'm sure it will happen if they don't get the virus under control soon. Someone will think of it, to get the upper hand on their competition.

    Thinking of growing houseplants

    I'd like to know more about these patents too? I would think you could add them to your flower stand/vegetable stand. Are you thinking of opening a big plant business? We grew houseplants when I was growing up. We gifted them and didn't sell them.

    Random question on birds

    My young child is now infatuated with birds (watching them). She watches them at my parents. We don't have bird feeders up but we are planning on it. I rarely notice birds around here in the winter and honestly I'm clueless when it comes to birds. I'm going to put out suet feeders today (my...

    Fiskars yard tools still made in USA?

    I don't know where they are made now. It saddens me that the new ones you bought aren't as good. I've bought Fiskars' scissors for many years with no issues. They truly are or were the best brand in my opinion.

    Keeping tree up!

    We took it down yesterday and what a huge mess it was! So many pine needles were on the floor, I was surprised there was any left on the tree. I left all the snowmen out but put the ornaments and Santa decorations away.

    Goat milk

    I have tried canned goat milk and I thought it was horrible! I have never tried fresh goat milk before. Thanks Rich for the information, I am going to have to try it. Now I wonder where I can get some fresh goat milk.

    Recipes What to do with ham and turkey

    So we went a little crazy with all the food we have been cooking for the last week. What in the world should I do with all of this leftover ham and turkey? We are getting sick of sandwiches!

    Raising farm animals together

    I've seen many farms that do this. I wondered how well it works. Do you do this? Which animals do you have together and what is the benefit?

    Getting A Vaccine Shot

    Yes I would! I want to travel and do more things. I'm ready to get the vaccine and get back to normal! So far the reviews have been good. There have been many healthcare professionals that have gotten it here.

    Irritated with some small equipment (tools)

    So I had a list of small power tools to buy and I thought I did good. When my husband opened them he laughed! I bought the ones that didn't come with batteries! Why in carnation would they sell tools without the battery - especially if they are cordless power tools?

    Keeping tree up!

    If there was ever a year we need more smiles and cheer, it's this year. I usually take our real tree down and out right after Christmas. This year we decided to leave it up until 2021. It's beautiful so why not enjoy it longer.

    If someone brought you food or goodies. . .

    I agree with Roo. You don't have to put something expensive in there. You can even put homemade bread or dollar candy in there. It's just a nice gesture. It's not expected but it is welcomed.

    How to keep ducks' water clean?

    Honestly I don't know how in the world you are going to keep it clean. I mean, how do you keep the ducks out of the water - I don't think you can. I don't raise ducks though.
