• Character Counts even when you’re a Chicken

    Earlier this evening, I went out to pour a hot tea kettle over the chickens’ waterer-turned-ice-lick, but the birds were already settling down for a long winter's nap. In the morning I’ll have to do the old cold-weather water-pour all over again because that once-scalding liquid will have concretized. I’m sure our six feathered-friends will be very enthusiastic since my last hot-water pour will have been 48 hours ago. Might I add, "It’s nice to feel wanted'?

    What? Dumb birds don't need character building?

    My dog has the same issue when I have to leave him out overnight. He has a covered shelter but by morning the pan of water froze. My solution was an electric watering pan that keeps the temp just above freezing.

    Even though it probably uses more power, the incandescent light serves that extra (and all-important purpose) of enouraging egg production.

The final frontier.

These are the musings of an engaging enterprise.
Its thirty-year mission:

To create a greener planet.

To seek a better life in our lumbering civilization, and

to slowly go where we are all are headed anyway.


Is an unproven system for generating wide-spread sustainability.

it asks for 10 minutes a day for a year. At the end of the year, it asks for 10 more.

So in the second year, you spend just 20 minutes a day, in the third year, 30 minutes.

If you keep up this pattern, 27 years later you spend over 4 hours per day being extremely green.
