  • ec. 31 signals closure of the old year and heralds in the new. It takes a few weeks for me to get used to writing the correct year on letters and memos. I catch up – normally sometime in February. When it comes to that, I realize I am not alone. It takes time for everybody to get used to the New Year.

  • Recently, I had a conversation with someone who was trying to figure out how grace works.

  • It’s very important to consider the special problems of cold weather and cattle. Cold increases the rate at which feed passes through the digestive tract. Less time in the digestive tract means less digestion of nutrients. In other words, a high-fiber, lower-digestible feed provides even fewer nutrients in cold winter weather.

  • I use this annual reflection to track our record of animal husbandry since we began raising a few hens for a personal egg supply in 2007.  
    Those few hens turned into over 100 in a few short years.  It was contagious, I suppose, as our taste for productivity grew and we added not only more eggs but meat chicken and lamb to the mix.  
    I think one of the most provocative questions there is for small scale producers comes from folks who say “How can you kill them?”  My answer is that I don’t.

    Small space heaters are typically used when the main heating system is inadequate or when central heating is too costly to install or operate. In some cases, small space heaters can be less expensive to use if you only want to heat one room or supplement inadequate heating in one room. They can also boost the temperature of rooms used by individuals who are sensitive to cold, especially elderly persons, without overheating your entire home.

    This emblem is composed of four concentric circles which typify the home, the state, the nation and the organization.
    The hearth fire in the center symbolizes the home and expresses the spirit of the finer attributes of the home, such as fellowship, hospitality, comfort, peace and protection.
    The oak leaf symbolizes the strength of the home; the lamp of knowledge, the wisdom with which a home and family must be created; the wheat productivity and richness of family and community life.
