2012...looks so futuristic. I remember back in the 60's I used to add 30, 40, 50, etc. years onto my age to see how old I will be in "what" year ....and worry if it might be possible for me to still be alive in the 2000's. All that worry for nothing.

Happy New Year...may it be full of good things, wonderful blessings and much happiness!

I'm not sure if I'll have much access to my computer for a few weeks so I'll wish you all the Merriest Christmas and best of wishes for the coming new year. May you all be blessed with good health and everything you need.

Frozen In Time

I wrote on here about an hour ago....low and behold between then and now I seem to have fixed my blog that has been broken since last spring! It seems Microsoft had an update that changed settings on my Internet Explorer to not allow Third Party Cookies. This prevented me from being able to sign into Blogger all the way (sometimes I could write a post but not edit it or add photos. Most of the time it would not let me leave comments on other blogs).'s fixed. I think. Yippee! I think. If this is too good to be true then I'll be reposting the new blog address again after the New Year.

Summer's End

I hope everyone has had a great summer? It seems to have come and gone much too quickly. Between the extreme heat and humidity...getting things done was slow going for me. I'm 3/4 way done putting in the pine siding and will finish that tomorrow and maybe even get the windows trimmed out. Then I'll start the ceiling on Monday and hopefully be finished with it by Tuesday. After the ceiling I'll be putting in the carpeting. I really wanted to install wood flooring but since I already bought the carpet a year ago and have not been able to sell it on craigslist I've decided to go ahead and just use it for now. It will save the me the expense of storing it over winter plus the expense of buying the materials for a wood floor (for now anyway).

Here's a photo of when I was installing the pine siding....Last week I installed new brake lines. No....I do not know anything about repairing brakes, but I watched a video on and gave it a whirl. And guess what??? I did it! I still need to bleed the brakes and will probably do that tomorrow. I'll do a post with some photos this week. Anyway, just after I started working on the brake lines, I turned around and bent down to pick up one of the new brake lines and when I turned back around to my tools laying on the big front tire...there was this clover sitting between the tools! I thought this was pretty cool since I call my land "Lucky Acres" (because it's 7.77 acres). It's not a four leaf clover but I still think it's pretty lucky to have it fall there like that right between my tools while I worked on something I really had no clue what I was doing. Everything went fine...I wonder how much money I saved by doing this myself?Yesterday the Amish neighbors bull got loose. They weren't home all day so it just kinda wondered up and down the gravel road snacking on the tall growth in the ditches. I stopped the car to take a photo and that's about all he had the patience for because right after I snapped it he dropped his head and started pawing the ground so I went on my way. Last year somebody's bull got loose near town and took over the baseball diamond. Nobody could go near the baseball diamond for a few days until somebody finally came and claimed the bull.Well, I guess that's enough bull for soon :o)

Bacon and Eggs Give-Away!

Hurry over to Bacon And Eggs and check out the COOL give-away scifichick got going on with great prizes from Emergency Essentials, Tattlers Canning Lids, and a gift certificate for Lowes, courtesy of The Orange Jeep Dad Blog....stop over there and say hi...he has LOTS of great preparedness information there.

Speaking of bacon and eggs...I made myself some turkey bacon and eggs a few days ago and when I tried to flip the egg so I wouldn't break the yolk, well, I didn't break the's all in the wrist.

And... the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

Still Here!

Yep, I'm still here, but I haven't found a solution to my Blogger malfunctions. Although it does seem to have something to do with particular ways a blog is setup...or perhaps older versus updated versions. I'll keep trying to fix my blog...thanks for being so patient.

I hope everyone is having a good summer so far? I've been busy plugging away on my bus and building a pole barn. Here's a sneak peak at the insulation on the wall and ceilings. Sorry for the mess!

In the meantime....

What to plant when?

Broken Blog

I've been having lots of problems with Blogger the past 2 months or so...posts not showing up and not able to edit them, can't leave comments on other people's blogs because it won't let me log in...(sorry to everyone who's blogs I do follow...I'm reading and trying to comment but Blogger won't let me! I'll continue to follow and read anyway!)

I'm not sure if anyone else is having these sort of problems but posting has become a big difficulty so I need to get to the bottom of this before I try to post anything else. See ya sooner or later!
