    A Jesusfreaks tales of farm life with three kids

    I wasn't implying that your dh wasn't taking precautions, I hope you realize that wasn't a criticism.... Just was trying to make a comparison that he has to be out.... and i really figured that both of you would have a protocol to be as safe as possible. YEP, bronchitis is a very good reason...

    A Jesusfreaks tales of farm life with three kids

    EXACTLY what Barb said. They have to take care of themselves. If things are shut down, then that means they have to stay in also. So file for unemployment, STAY HOME, and grow up and act like an adult. And maybe you need to outright say, that you are in a shut down, lock down area and you...

    Bruce's Journal

    It is a shame that the current owner, a family member that bought the farm from his uncle, is not willing to restore this house the way it should be. The one thing in it's favor, it has never stood empty for any length of time. But the uncle took better care of this place from what I have been...

    Remembered to dump the rain gauge.... we had about .6 inches total for the 2 days worth of showers/rain off and on. So today started at 46, cloudy early then cleared off to mostly sunny. Up to 65 but there was a breeze.... Still nicer than the chilly rainy days we had before. Tomorrow and...

    Love those "old New England farmhouses and colonials" but they do have their frustrations as I am sure @Bruce can tell you. My house up there was over 100 yrs old, my grandparents house was over 100 yrs old when I was a kid 50 yrs ago. It has since been taken down. My family had a couple of...

    I have always loved the colored lambs..... Don't have it in the white Texas Dalls except for those that have some other blood in them like Barbados, or anything else..... but the little colored ones are just cute. And I do like the "ears" on your sheep in general.... almost look "wild or...

    A Jesusfreaks tales of farm life with three kids

    I feel for you having to worry with the family/parents part, then having to juggle your husbands' want to expand. But with the way things are going, you really do need to stay strong and stand your ground. First off, DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER moving your kids around to accommodate your parents...

    A Jesusfreaks tales of farm life with three kids

    I agree with the "sub-contract" out to other drivers already in business. Their vehicle, their insurance..... Also that you hire for the job. I think that you and your husband need to write out a list of what you would consider for a new hire and then apply it to whomever else you are...

    B&B Happy Goats....journal

    People cannot accept a kindness without looking to cash in on someone's "niceness"..... And yes, @Bruce it does hurt to ask in some cases....... I'll bet you were nicer than I would have been. "Tactful" is NOT my middle name. You just keep on the way you are, you are a better person than...

    Did you get any snow? My brother sent a picture from my parents in NH that they got 5 inches. I guess a day or 2 ago? Boy, I sure don't want to see any of that stuff with my peach trees in full bloom....

    Thanks @Mike CHS .... yes we started getting some very light sprinkles when I got home about 8. Then I could hear it on the roof, and it looks like we got some serious rain last night. It was just sprinkles first thing, but has settled down to some pretty steady rain here for the last hour or...

    Was 39 this morning and up to 64 according to the recording thermometer. We had some rain yesterday/last eve, but I forgot to look at the rain gauge today. It was partly sunny, decent but then clouded over and got cool this eve. Started with some showers on the way home and now I hear it on...

    We went to test a farm this afternoon. 150+ cows, they milk pretty decent. I am not feeling super but it's liveable. The headache is mostly gone, and the generic brand of mucinex has a cough suppressant so that was good. I will still feel it for a few more but hope this is the downhill...

    Have you managed to get the boat out and gone fishing yet? I have thought about that several times since you mentioned it.

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    You simply say that you only have a couple that you have to keep because of your immune deficient system. You simply say no, we can't help you. Stay home and stay away from people and you won't get it.

    Need help introducing a bottle baby to food....

    How can he be taking more during his feedings unless you are giving him more? You are increasing his amount of milk if he is taking more during his feedings, so he will never start to try more solid food. Decrease the total amount he is getting a day. Split it in however many bottles you...
