"We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!" President Bush
The big news of the day is the death and burial at sea of Osama bin Laden. Thank you, President Bush and the US military (including my son and future son-in-law) who made this day happen. Other news is the nuptials of William and Catherine in Great Britain. May God bless their union and draw them close to Him in Jesus Christ. Alabama (my state) and other southeast states continue the task of digging out and rebuilding. A massive effort is underway with able bodies and supplies needed.
Jem, I’m so glad you “resurrected” ATRW. I really missed it. It just doesn’t feel the same at the other location.
We had plenty of wind and more than plenty of rain, but only a very small part of the city was affected by the tornadoes. Surprisingly, a couple of businesses by the river!
We have had lots of downtime on our electricity and telephone lines, but things are getting better every day.
Yesterday, in our cycle of prayer, we prayed for Papua and so you have been in my thoughts every since. I was glad to find you here today!
Thank you, Jem, I miss them too. I just wish I knew how to help keep this chat going, daily.
Hi johnny, We’re knee deep in radishes, the beets are about ready to pull, the squash have flowers, the beans are growing like gang busters, as is the watermelon, don’t have any cukes yet, but will soon.
I think he was buried within 24 hours of death according to arabic/islamic belief, he was buried at sea so his grave on land could not be used as a shrine, or for those he’d hurt as revenge. Our troops did take pictures of him, in death, for official purposes. They also got a whole bunch of information from his computers, which is now being looked into and studied. Thank goodness for that little courier’s comings and goings.
The Mississippi has crested in Iowa and the high water has moved downstream.
Jem, I’ve said before, you are a Gem. Thanks for getting some of us back here.
Do you have any idea what kind of genetics you're working with?
Most of the pork leaving our farm today walks up the loading shoot weighing around 300# each. One would be almost more trouble than what it is worth.
But free was free, and one bag of corn plus scraps from 3 neighbors makes for fairly cheap feed. I do grind the corn and make her hot water corn cakes that she loves.
On the positive side, I move her cage around the yard and she's wiping out grubs in the yard and leaving well plowed and fertilized little garden plots. ;)
All the rain in the last couple of days is really helping save a few bucks on watering.
I don’t like Obama
Good morning all.....
Lots of rain here in April and the start of May. My postage stamp garden is started, chives came through the winter quite well. I have added some sweet basil and dill.
I have a few tomato plants also. Flowers are lovely and grass growing too fast.
I spend lot of my days at the local hospital since my BIG C fight. If cancer doesn’t kill you, the treatment might!
Toby and I are close to the same age....so hope and pray he is OK.
Good Morning, Bee!! Nice to see you again!
Good Morning everyone! It’s brisk out there this morning. I didn’t bring a coat back to DM with me, so I’ll be moving quickly from the car to the building.
Good morning, Iowa Granny.
I don’t know how it is in Iowa, but we have too much rain here for the farmers...they are so behind in planting.
I am in the Hoosier state.
Good morning! Thank you for the encouragement.
I had not heard how your city was affected but it doesn't surprise me that anything by the river was hit. That river seems to be a tornado highway; perhaps the water feeds the storms instead of causing the storms to expend energy.
Thank you so much for the prayers. We are very close to being cleared to return.
I’m not sure how to do that either. I guess that we should be our own sparkling selves, full of wit and repartee and very friendly and engaging to all who drop by.
Ping to the list! Today is a beautiful day in the south. The leaves are green, the sky is blue and my daughter’s border collie appears to have frightened away the chipmunks and rabbits.
My roses are the best they’ve been in several years. I’m still fighting black spot fungus, though. My magnolias are in bloom and they smell heavenly.
I think Toby will be around soon. Like most of us, he stopped dropping by so often. But every now and again, he would post something on the last February thread so I suspect that he’ll be around soon.
Special ping to you! What is your granddaughter planning for this summer? Any mission trips?
I don’t either.
Yes, they are going to blow the level to save Cairo IL and will put something like 130,000 acres of farmland awash. Terrible for those farmers, losing crops, topsoil....their ground may never be what it was.
Good morning everybody.
Tis a beautiful day on the Space Coast....and actually all over the world !!...because of yesterday's news!!.
..YAY SEALS, OUR MILITARY AND OUR INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY!....YOU ALL ROCK!
Thanks for the reply.....I hope Toby is fine and busy gathering lots of eggs for his neighbors. ;o)
God bless the Navy seals and the USA.
Hey! Hubby and I are heading down to Orlando this Saturday. We have a conference at WBT headquarters starting on Monday. Do you recommend any churches in the area for Sunday? Do y’all have any time free either that Sunday or the following Friday or Saturday? Maybe we can meet somewhere for dinner?
Jack will be getting more loads of natural rock for the rest of the hill and around the pond. Barb will buy him a set of optics for his airsoft rifle.
Barb is set up now in the basement for her pet treat and toy business and has shed the boat anchor of a woman that was helping her out of Tennessee. She nearly lost the business, but it has turned around now and she is nearly set up in the basement where my irstwhile shop was going to be located.
We are tying the knot a week from this Friday.
Please, please, please post pictures of all your work. Congratulations to Barb for that turn-around in business. It is harder to recover a business than to start one. She has done a mighty work!
Holy Moly, when did you plant? Your garden sounds wonderful!
Oh, I remember that. It was awful for a lot of us to think about what happened to you and how close we were of losing you. So happy you’re 99&100% back to normal. AND happy you have such a great garden.
OH Rave, you are too generous...I despise the bombastic twerp.
I just read about the dike being blown to save Cicero and flood the farms. I cannot imagine the helplessness these farmers must feel. Will the water flood their homes too? There should be another avenue.
Congratulations to you and Barb. Wonderful!
I am so HAPPY for you and Barb.
God bless your marriage, always!
Congratulations to you and Barb....and Jack.
The down side is that the last time I made biscuits and sausage gravy, I was feeding 600 people.
I've been wandering around the neighborhood offering breakfast to my neighbors. And I'm still going to have left-overs to feed to Miss Piggy.
Congratulations to you!
Sounds like Obama has decided to release at least one photo of Osama.
(gotta pay extra attention when typing about the two of them in the same post)
Great idea Jemian. Thank you! It was fun finding this thread. I read the blog thread most days but never tried to get onto it. All is as well as can be expected here in eastern WA. Cold, rainy, windy weather. Budget disasters at all levels. School districts laying off teachers and support staff and closing schools. Good news about Bin Laden but as usual with Obama, more questions than answers. Good day to everyone.
I am sorry about the teachers being laid off but, imo, many “central offices” are bloated with people who like the work but got tired of the classroom. Like any bureaucracy, it is easy for a school system to become bloated.
There are still many questions about bin Laden but the hypocrisy of this administration is incredible.
I was wrong about the ID of the sheiks who got terminated on 12/12/2001. Dog deserves a case of his favorite beer.
Dog was right again.
That thread showing OBL’s death picture was pulled. Hmmmm.
I think the photo on that site looks like this guy.
That’s funny. I know that thread got pulled but don’t you just know many people saved the picture to their hard drive. Once posted, it is forever out.
For sure, LOL!
