Well, I'm going to try to go to bed too. You all have a good night and stay warm and snuggled up.

It's a blessing to have a nice comfortable home in these days and times. Never take it for granted. Somehwere out there are people in this world who are cold and hungry tonight. Don't forget to thank God for everything you have, even if you feel like it might not be "enough"....

Unless I have trouble falling asleep, goodnight to all of you good folks! Hopefully we'll chat tomorrow..

I have heard that Cayenne is even good for lowering high blood pressure and helping to regulate blood sugar due to diabetes too.
Of course, I'd not trust holistic medicines without a doctors advise if you're already being treated for an ailment.. Nor would I drop any prescription meds and go the natural route without a doctors guidance....
But a healthy person would be wise to take note that natural remedies NOW surely are a nice way to prevent the need for prescription medications somewhere down the road.
So would natural foods, like the ones you all were talking about earlier in here. Fresh and hormone free foods like we had when most of us were much younger..
I don't know about you all, but I don't recall having any classmates who were diabetic or were on ADD, ADHD, or any other mood altering medications back then either. Just something to think about....
Yep, in 12 years I only remember one kid who was a litttle slow in school. I believe that was from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. There wasn't any of the other stuff.

I remember drinking fresh cow's milk while visiting my grandparents and seems it was ok. I never heard of anyone dying from drinking fresh milk, unless the cow fell on them.
Probably will be illegal to eat fresh eggs at the rate things are going. Buggers.
An alternative is the "barter" system. Trade milk and eggs for something you need. That is not "selling". I have always followed the rule of "Don't ask and be denied". I always taught my boys "Don't ask me for the car keys and put me in the position of having to say "no". JUst take my ire when you get back".

I remember drinking fresh cow's milk when I was a kid. The farmer would bring over a few bottles. The cream on the top was the best part. Oh, those were the days. The farmer would make me a special bottle of chocolate milk.(At that age, I thought it came from a brown cow, LOL)
We never even had electricity, so no refridgeration. We put fresh milk in gallon jars and stored it in the natural spring here at the Homestead. Dad had even made a small shed to put over the spring to shade it and keep out leaves and such. I still have the old white metal dipper that hung out by the spring. On summer days, there was nothing like a cool dipper full of fresh spring water.

What kind of goats do you have?
Nubian and Nubian Boer cross. I had some pure Boers and decided to get out of them. They get very big and hard to maintain. Boers are better for meat. A Nubian Boer cross makes them more disease resistant and so I crossed them. I started with two boers and fell in love with spotted nubians! Nubians are good for milk and high in butter fat.

All goats are really good for getting into your neighbors (and your sweetie's mother's flowers) gardens, bushes, and flowers! Ha ha ha! I had a lot of lovely flowers and herbs planted until I started getting into goats about 4+ years ago. We did not even plant a garden last season.

Baby time is the best! Baby goats will make you laugh on your worst day! Once they start to bounce there is no stopping them! Goats have been my favorite farm animal so far.

you are one up on me, I did not know you could not sell milk, bummer. I make butter and it would be nice to be able find someone who did, even goat.
We will have to talk about butter making this spring! I always wanted to try and just have not started yet. If we lived closer I could legally "give" you goats milk.=)

In the winter, they tied a garlic on a string and you wore the thing around your neck. I guess the idea was that you stunk so bad that snotty nose kids stayed away from you. LOL

Good Morning Mumma. I have a few birds outside my window trying to find some old grass seeds I threw out. I hope you have a pleasant day.

I can't afford the expensive birdseed, but I have about 25 pounds of old grass seed that a local farmer claimed would not grow, plus I bought a 50 pound bag of Layena chicken crumbles that I scatter about. That 75 pounds will last the birds most all winter.

Everything is fine here, just cold. But that makes us more appreciative when it is better. Dog, chickens, birds, and I all had plenty to eat and I am looking out the window to see if I can see my deer. The best part of this day is that the CREATOR let me wake up one more time. I hope your day is nice.
