A busy time at work

Regular readers, friends, and relatives checking in for an update on farm activities will have been disappointed lately, since I haven't posted for nearly two whole weeks.

Don't worry. I haven't abandoned blogging, nor have Aimee and I given up farming.

I've just been working weekends.

This began in later January with the start of my renewable energy class at our local community college. The class was pleasant to teach and successful. All the students were older, in their forties, fifties and even sixties, and very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the experience and indeed had to stretch a little. I certainly spent a good deal more time researching new material and looking things up than I normally have to. I hope to be invited back.

This weekend I took our own Unity College students to the Camden Conference. This was a great experience for me, since the students I took were our very best, and good company. But I particularly enjoyed hearing the National Strategic Narrative authors Wayne Porter and Mark Mykleby.

This last is recommended for all my former mates in the RAF and indeed any ex-serviceman.

Here's a link to their You-Tube version, and to my commentary on the class blog.

So that's what I've been up to. I'll be back with more farm activities soon. Lambing season is all set to begin.

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.
