"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Dr. Adrian Rogers , 1931 - 2005

Golden Goose and Fearless Feline

Here is Buffy the goose and he is very afraid of the ducks! What we have learned in our small time that we have been farming...is that you need two of what ever. He paces back and forth and acts bizarre. So this one is the test dummy. If we get more geese, we will get at least two.



This is Bandit and he has decided that we are his people. He eats scraps like the chickens and is an avid hunter around the pens and property. He has earned his table scraps time and time again by liquidating the rodents, lizards and snakes that scurry and slither around the farm.
