Got out the big gun.

I missed several cute photographs of the kittens with the baby Boar goat so I decided to go and dust off my “real” camera.  I was embarrassed to see how dusty it was.  I also took out the manual and am reviewing to remember how to use the damned camera. Took these photos tonight.  There […]

Cabin Fever!!!!

Realized late yesterday afternoon that I was suffering from cabin fever.  I was edgy, irritable and my back was killing me from sitting on the couch.  We spent far too much time watching television and I really need to be doing something.  Lately, I’ve been keeping Wally from doing too much because his knee has […]

Okay, now what?

Now that I’m finished with the Spellcast Farm 2011 Holiday Newsletter, what do I do now?  A good friend of mine suggested that I write to our local congressman and commissioner of labor telling them of the injustice that I suffered via MM and my denial of unemployment benefits and cc the letter to the […]
