"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

Baa baa Black Sheep

Have you any wool? Of course! And look at what I found today in town at an antique store...to help us in the spring...sheep shears

I am very happy at our find, and look forward to our shearing season.

How cool! I haven't learned how to shear my sheep yet. I made a few calls and can't find anyone to do it or teach me so I guess we'll just do it (carefully) and get better as we go. How did you learn to do it? Do you process your own wool? I'm excited to have some homemade socks soon. :)
