America The Right Way - Staying Vigilant
All of us and a variety of sources | May 2, 2011 | Freepers of good heart everywhere

Posted on 05/02/2011 4:52:21 AM PDT by Jemian

"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!

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.

What’s going on with the Mississippi in your area?

The Mississippi has crested in Iowa and the high water has moved downstream.

I don't know how you guys do it. My one little piggy is a handful.

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.

She's a commercial pig with a long body. She's white in color. And has a LOT less hair than the ferals we've been shooting. Other than that, I don't know a particular type. She weighed about 12 lbs when I got her, and she's up to 35 in the month I've had her. I'm not going to let her get much more than 100-125 lbs since that's about as large as I can deal with here at the house. Any larger and I'd have to skin her instead of scald and scrape her.

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. ;)

I've got squash that are a couple of inches long, green tomatoes, tiny little peppers, and the herb garden is going nuts. Asparaus is doing well, and the beans are going crazy. Potatoes are going well. Tobacco is doing good. I've got russian sunflowers against the fence-line and they are well over a foot tall already.

All the rain in the last couple of days is really helping save a few bucks on watering.

I should mention that this time last year, I could barely walk and was still recovering from my accident. I am very blessed to have recovered so quickly so that I can actually work out in the garden.

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, 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.

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.

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?

Hi Jemian et al! We are expecting rain the next three days here in southern New Hampshire. The ducklings are really big now and love the pond we put in. When I dug the hole for the pond, I created "Mt. Waterfall" behind it and this past weekend, we built our waterfall and got the pump running. I terraced the right side (facing it) with rock walls, put in dirt and we have Yew and other plants planted.

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.

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.

I had a hankering for biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast this morning. So I made some.

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.

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.

There were many friends missing, you included, and the sorrow grew more than I could bear. We still have an APB out for Gulfcoast6, however.

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.
