Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
Thanks Nines. I wouldnt download music anyway, but good to know.

Yes, they are cute and happy, and if you saw where she came from, she must feel like shes in a mansion! There were 4 larger than pinky pigs of aprox 250lbs and her and another small one all in a 10x10 pen! No pool, no water spicket that I could see and no hay.

Now she has a 12x20 with the pool and spicket, but she doesnt seem to know how to use the spicket and hasnt gotten in the pool yet. Pinky has tried to show her cause she is dirty, but she seems afraid of it.

We had a huge roll of hay delivered today and I had Pete make an area in the covered part of the pen into a nice little bedding area for them so they dont get cold. He put tarp on the outside of the fence, then put hay inside the fence and put some wire fencing to hold it in place, so now they have a three sided insulated area and the forth side has just the tarp on the outside of the fence, its about three feet out from the U shaped bedding area.

I think that should be fine for our winters here, they can use it or sleep out in the open part of the pen on hay or dirt.

We let them roam the pasture while he was doing the work and Delilah just followed Pinky, didnt try to dig out or anything, so I am not so worried about her getting out.

She is also loving the day old produce that my son brings home from the grocery store every few days.

We had about 9 volunteer tomatoe plants growing in the pen and now there is one left, she has been eating them. Apparently Pinky considered that too much work when we just hand him ripe tomatoes, but she ate the bush with green tomatoes on it. Pete dug up the cantaloupe bushes a few months ago and replanted them in our yard, so apparently the pig pen is the new "plant nursery", growing stuff from seeds that the pigs missed! I think I also HAD potatoes growing in there, but the bush is gone and the dirt rooted up, so I think we missed out on that.

Maybe once we open the gate she wont go in there except to eat, and she will graze like Pinky, and we will have our veggie starter patch back.

Awwww, she's probably the happiest pig around. How sad it sounds where she came from. It makes me soooo happy you got her. I hope her little mate gets an equally good home. It sounds downright dangerous. If I were there, that little one in with the big ones would be coming home with me, but like you, wouldn't want her lonesome and there'd be another one and even less would get done around here. LOL.

Her living conditions sound so wonderful now, and it touched me so much that you provide such good care. Even a pool and nice bedding and shelter. She's a very lucky pig.

You are also fortunate to have Pete. What a guy to build that shelter. I remember when his back was hurt and how you cared for him, and hearing this, makes it extra special knowing how you guys care for each other....and the critters....and the kids. Not in that order. LOL.

That's the nicest thing about your son bringing home the treats for them. They must really look forward to seeing his car pull in...if they can see it. LOL.

Bet Delilah had never sampled anything outside her crowded little pen before she came to you. No wonder she's sampling everything. What an adventure for her.

Sometime when you get a chance, listen to the song Delilah by Plain White T's on you tube. It's been on my mind since hearing your piggy's name. So many of the words remind me of your Delilah. Wish I could see your pretty pigs, but until then:

Is that the song about her going to NYC??? At this point I try not to stray on my computer since its such a POS! (peice of shit)

I have more excellent news, after doing all these shows over the past two months, I got 3 different orders from people who bought stuff at the shows wanting more for themselves and Christmas gifts, so on Monday I spent the day making up products to send out, it was exciting for me that over two days I got over 300 dollars worth of orders from strangers. It makes me feel really good that they liked my products enough to reorder and buy for others.

How awesome for you! You must be so proud and happy. What a wonderful job you've done. You have excellent products so it was obvious from early on that you were going to be kept busy.

So glad for your success and hope you don't wear yourself out doing it. Having something you enjoy makes things easier though, doesn't it? It's obvious from the quality that you enjoy it.

Yes, that song is probably the same one. I'd post it for you, but if your computer is being bad, it's probably better to wait.

Geez. Thought I got up early. You beat me! It was a late night. That's my excuse. LOL.

Thanks for letting us know Flav. Had a great day hearing about the piggies, now another great one hearing this. Have a great one yourself.

Gotta get moving and try to catch up to you. wakkawak

Thanks guys. Yes, I dont know what came over me today, I was wide awake at 4am, layed there till 430 than got up and tried to be productive!

Doing some dreaded Christmas wrapping. I hate wrapping! As a teen I used to tie a ribbon around the shopping bag it came in and toss it under the tree, but as an adult I just cant do that and feel good about it.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
We arent doing anything this year at the house since were going to the cabin for Christmas, I think thats part of the problem too. Not to mention Jake the dog dribbling pee every 15 mins, Its getting to me big time.

I am such a fanatic and between the dog being sick and "leaking" and doing all those shows and stuff the house has been let go. Nobody else would ever notice, but I do. My grout needs some serious scrubbing and I just dont have the energy.

I think its also that we have been in this house for 10 yrs and we have not had to paint or do anything interior, but this year the baseboards are showing the need for paint, and the doors too. They are at that point when they dont want to wipe clean anymore.

Personally I think thats a great track record of not painting being that we have 4 teenager/young adults all of that time living here, as well as all the friends too.

Tis the season. Things be gray and gloomy today, like so much of winter. In the 40's but feels nasty. LOL. Can't complain at all though, for this time of year.

Looks like you're going to have some excitement. Worst thing about driving in nasty ol' snow is watching out for everyone else. It would be a nightmare watching out in a place everyone else isn't used to it. Stay safe!

It is alot of fun! It's really small, about 10 floats, but they're all lit with Christmas lights and it's really pretty. Santa shows up on the fire truck and all the school kids sing carols at the town gazebo. It's a nice, little piece of Norman Rockwell that still survives. I like it. If the pics the paper took are any good, I'll see if I can link them this weekend.

Finally got some Christmas mojo working. Outside lights are up and we got a tree. It's a 5 foot noble and we got the lights on but that is probably it for today. Dug all the Christmas stuff out of the rafters in the garage. No small feat there, the garage is really small and crammed full of crap. Maybe I can get going on the shopping early this week.

On another note, anyone who has an I phone, I have this app called sky walk, its free, and once you load it, you just point your phone in the sky, or to the ground and it shows where the stars, plantets, and constallations are, its very cool right now because you can see the alignment of the planets beginning. You cant see them all on one screen cause some like the moon, is in the southern hemi at the moment so you have to point your phone to the ground to see it.

You get the point. There are many planets very close to being in the straight line now. Its pretty cool

heya everyone

sorry i worried you

believe it or not, we didnt feel the 6.3 quake, even though the epicentre was only about 44kms from us!

it was reported as felt by over 12,000 nzers from the top of the north island to the bottom of the south island!

i didnt hear about the quake, until i was heading out the door to go into the city at lunchtime, several hours after it had occured, because as mama said, i have been having some times away from my computer

but when i tried to check it out on my phone on the way into town, i discovered my phone was almost flat, and i didnt dare to post, in case that was enough to run it completely flat

the best i cold do was read bits of the thread that was going about the quake

btw i wasnt driving, lols

lots of love from me to all of you wonderful sisters xxxxxxx
