A soggy people

The British are a "soggy people," says Aimee, my lovely wife, referring to the fact that I enjoy walks in the rain while she does not.

An interesting proposition. Soggy with what? Beer? I would have to agree, thinking at least of pub crawls I have known. Water? I feel fairly dry right now.

The sheep are certainly soggy. It's been snowing, then sleeting, and now raining. Too dangerous to go to work, we have the day off. Aimee made a cake. I fed sheep, walked dogs, plowed the driveway and read a trashy novel. John le Carre.

I think I'll take the dogs for a walk in the rain. Sounds like fun. She may be right.

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.
