Weekend Activities: Homebodying.

No one wants to go anywhere in the car today, so we're hanging out around here. Bliss.

Activities: Trying out the new knitting machine we got from eBay. (Very frustrating -- I gave up after a day and a half of trying to make this thing work.) Walking Haggis the dog in the snowy woods. Tending the sheep and chickens. This is Tilley and Molly, mother and daughter. Live-trapping a weasel. Baking bread. Listening to the Corries (the official Scottish folk music band of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service circa 1982), watching the football game on TV, hoping someone will revenge the Steelers by beating the Pats, either today or in the Superbowl. Probably drinking a beer while doing so.

High culture.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
