nah..... it just always get quiet when there's no bickering going on. i think we still get a good number of viewers, its just most have nothing to say ... and some nothing nice to say.lol

beans have finally decided its safe to grow again after the frost last week. i had lost a few and the ones that made it looked fine but, they just had not done anything new after growing three inches and doubling leaves the previous week. today the big one in the middle decided to pop out another three or four beginnings of leaves, so i figure the rest will follow suit. peppers are doing great but take a lot of water. i always thought that they would grow closer to a cactus type plant and freak out every time i water them like my aloes tend to do but... nope! i have finally found a crop that will let me hover and over water till my hearts content and not die! i have read and been told that if you with hold the watering a little and let them thirst that you will get a hotter pepper but oh well.... save me from taking a few zantacs.

have decided cabbages are freaks of nature.... the sun comes out....nothing..... it gets bitter cold and rains all night, get another set of leaves....

still no sign of melons..... shouldn't i be seeing vines at least?
threw them out march 27th down hill from the compost pit and covered loosely with some left over mulch and clippings from the first mow. nothing at all yet.

dog-tree time.@Betty.. I set out cabbage plants and was trying to keep the chickens out of them and forgot all about the rabbits. They got every one over night. Oh well, I like looking at the fat rabbits more than I like making kraut. LOL

Your melons are going to need several days of consistently warmer and dryer weather. The yo-yo April is over and you may start seeing some growth by mid-May. I have been trying for two weeks to get the corn field dry enough to plant corn and every time it gets close, here comes more rains. I suppose we could all use just a bit more patience.

Good morning! Another beautiful day!!

Got most of the chicken coop cleaned out so we can start the remodeling job tomorrow! I found ALL kinds if surprises in that shed! Those 35. 1 pound coffee cans from a long ago auction I got for a dollar of so? They held hundreds of brand new bright and shiny nuts, bolts and screws of all sizes! Cast iron cookware? Found it! I have enough to cook with for the entire wagon train!!!
Been super busy and also topix all of a sudden said i couldn't post because I need java script and cookies.

I agree with this!! A good while back I was on thread that was really being hit hard with the trolls. It got to be rather awful so we left. We soon found out that things need a little spice every now and then to keep it going...(like romance, I guess! Lol).

Me too. Almost two acres plus trimming the creek bank weeds. Right now I am watching the rooster dance around trying to impress the hens. I think I saw him or someone similar doing the same dance once before in a Country Western bar while wearing a big cowboy hat and doing the Texas Two-step.

Glad I don't have a big yard anymore. I just couldn't handle it. I mow only about half an acre behind the house.
Oh my birds will be happy!!

someone posted this to my face book wall..... had to share.

CINDY WILLIAMS was appointed by Obama as an Assistant Director for NATIONAL SECURITY in the Congressional Budget Office.....

Cindy William wrote a piece for the Washington Times denouncing the pay raise(s) coming service members' way this year citing that she stated a 13% wage increase was more than they deserve.
A young airman from HillAFB responds to her article below. He ought to get a bonus for this.

"Ms Williams:
I just had the pleasure of reading your column, "Our GI's earn enough" and I am a bit confused. Frankly, I'm wondering where this vaunted overpayment is going, because as far as I can tell, it disappears every month between DFAS (The Defense Finance and Accounting Service) and my bank account. Checking my latest earnings statement I see that I make $1,117.80 before taxes per month. After taxes, I take home $874.20. When I run that through the calculator, I come up with an annual salary of $13,413.60 before taxes, and $10,490.40 after.
I work in the Air Force Network Control Center where I am part of the team responsible for a 5,000 host computer network. I am involved with infrastructure segments, specifically with Cisco Systems equipment. A quick check under jobs for "Network Technicians" in the Washington , D.C. area reveals a position in my career field, requiring three years experience in my job. Amazingly, this job does NOT pay $13,413.60 a year. No, this job is being offered at $70,000 to $80,000 per annum.......... I'm sure you can draw the obvious conclusions.
Given the tenor of your column, I would assume that you NEVER had the pleasure of serving your country in her armed forces.
Before you take it upon yourself to once more castigate congressional and DOD leadership for attempting to get the families in the military's lowest pay brackets off of WIC and food stamps, I suggest that you join a group of deploying soldiers headed for AFGHANISTAN ; I leave the choice of service branch up to you. Whatever choice you make though, opt for the SIX month rotation: it will guarantee you the longest possible time away from your family and friends, thus giving you full "deployment experience."
As your group prepares to board the plane, make sure to note the spouses and children who are saying good-bye to their loved ones. Also take care to note that several families are still unsure of how they'll be able to make ends meet while the primary breadwinner is gone. Obviously they've been squandering the "vast" piles of cash the government has been giving them.
Try to deploy over a major holiday; Christmas and Thanksgiving are perennial favorites.. And when you're actually over there, sitting in a foxhole, shivering against the cold desert night, and the flight sergeant tells you that there aren't enough people on shift to relieve you for chow, remember this: trade whatever MRE's (meal-ready-to-eat) you manage to get for the tuna noodle casserole or cheese tortellini, and add Tabasco to everything. This gives some flavor.
Talk to your loved ones as often as you are permitted; it won't be nearly long enough or often enough, but take what you can get and be thankful for it. You may have picked up on the fact that I disagree with most of the points you present in your open piece.
But, tomorrow from KABUL , I will defend to the death your right to say it.
You see, I am an American fighting man, a guarantor of your First Amendment right and every other right you cherish...On a daily basis, my brother and sister soldiers worldwide ensure that you and people like you can thumb your collective noses at us, all on a salary that is nothing short of pitiful and under conditions that would make most people cringe. We hemorrhage our best and brightest into the private sector because we can't offer the stability and pay of civilian companies.
And you, Ms.. Williams, have the gall to say that we make more than we deserve?”

patience is definitely not my strong point. now if you need some one to pick and pick and pick something to perfection (except for grammar) i can hold it down. lol found some cheapo rose bush starters at the dollar general today that were marked down to a dollar a piece. got them all sorted out in a line down the length of the front porch. if i can keep joe poodle off them long enough they may decide they like it and catch up to the ones that were already there. not probable but a buck for a rose bush aint a bad deal.

yup i think if a few of us, myself included, could refrain from personal attacks. we could have an intelligent debate about things on this thread. its been tried in the past but failed miserably for the most part because peoples wanting to be right all the time overshadowed the points they were trying to make, and then someones feelings got hurt, which normally led to the caps lock being turned on, and then all reason was replaced by pure drama queen-isms and rantings.

mmm hmmm.... we are one big dysfunctional family on this thread but we have learned over the past two years, for the better, and in the spirit of co existence, to just talk about flowers and sun tans.lol denial is not just a river in Egypt you know.....:0

No denial

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”

I am familiar with this weaponry and have had the same thought regarding practicing on animals first.
It's a way to take care of human overpopulation right? Why don't these people that are deadest on eliminating a huge portion of the population just volunteer themselves and there families? Cowards, that's why.

true so true
war doesn't pay...so why is our government so keen on putting us into war? Well, the people in power make money (defense contractors like Cheney's Halliburton) but the soldiers end up poor or dead.

it's because the mundane topics you talk about gets boring after a while...admit it wolf, this thread was more active when I stirred the pot with the controversial conspiracy topics which you so despise. Why? because there is truth in what I said which made people uncomfortable, especially you as you were experiencing a psychological phenomenon known as "cognitive dissonance".
