Scary stats!
Gotta get me to the country and buy more farm land. We bought our chicks last month and they'll be laying within six months. We made our own apple cider this weekend. We'll be expanding the garden next year and we'll be getting goats to try our hand at making goat cheese.

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

There's enough high fructose corn syrup in this thread to give me Diabetes!

The people in our country are not employees of a business, and they should NOT be treated as such. Moreover, our country is NOT a business, and it shouldn't be run as if it were!
