I will be trying again today to update the blog. I need to spend some serious time cleaning/organizing my office anyway and I might as well do two things at once.
I really hate the thought of sending this back to the 'computer geek' to have him overhaul it.... In the meantime, I am on the hunt for a new computer. The next one will be a laptap and I am leaning seriously toward the Macs.
And, if anyone has email me/the farm and I have not replied, please try again.

More pictures of our setup, after the sun came out. I did not realize that the boxes were showing until I put the pictures on the blog....... )o:
I need to find this woman's card so I can let you know who she is...........I do know that she is from Connecticut. And her colors are awesome!
David's double flyer Ashford Traveller. Two handed spinning anyone?

It has come to my attention that the most recent fabric the Matilda Brand Sheep covers are made of is UV treated and that washing damages this treatment. Noel has recently posted new washing instructions for us to use.If possible do NOT wash these covers. If you must wash them use cold or warm water only (do NOT use hot water). Presoak the covers in warm water if they are muddy. Wash only one or 2 covers at a time in the washer and use liquid dish washing detergent (I know, this sounds crazy, but it does seem to make a difference. Do NOT use clothes washing detergent). Hang the covers to dry. Agitation, hot water and clothes washing detergent cause major damage to the covers.One of our dealers has washed 6 brand new covers and ruined them, then he tried the dish washing detergent and no damage was done!Please send these instructions out to anyone who is buying covers from you.Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you! I just wish I had known this earlier!!Belinda
The ewe to the left is Psycho. Silver's twin, and Stormy's aunt. I couldn't get a good picture of his mother. The two ewes look a lot alike. Silver is a little taller, Psycho is a little fatter.
Long John Silver.
Born to Silver & John on March 9, 2008. One of two ram lambs. Both were black when born and therefore registered as such. Stormy will go for $500 or BRO at this time.
Isn't Cornelius handsome? He is just over 1 year old and is a registered Horned Dorset.
Well, aren't you going to feed us? I was trying to take pictures of Stormy and the girls couldn't understand why they weren't being fed, again.
Shari supervising. The goats are 3 years old already. The first time Jerry sheared them, it took him an hour apiece. Now it takes him not time at all. The goats are being shearing 8/31/08.
How many people does it take to shear a goat?
Cliff's first shearing experience. He is at the ready with the hand shearers.
His friend has to make sure he is ok.
2 out of 3 of the llamas had to come check on Jerry and their goats.
And of course, I go nowhere without my knitting. Rattlesnake Creek socks from Sock Knitter's Pentathlon at Yahoo! Groups. This is the 3rd sock I've done with this group.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...
NBPC - The Daydreamer
Nature, Background, Big Picture, and Color
You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.
Take The Perception Personality Image Test
But, do go check them out. They have great recipes. If you like cookies and the such........yum!
You're something of a showoff, aren’t you? (But in a deliciously good way!) For you, good taste is only part of the story. Your fresh-baked creations look like they were torn from the pages of a magazine, reflecting your winning sense of style. No wonder your treats get so many "oohs and ahhhs."
