"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

What is on YOUR backporch?

Our chickens have three pens. We have the flocks segregated based on production and age. The newest egg layers just moved to our backyard. Funny as this sounds our backyard is about 1/4 of an acre fenced. The chickens have had fun foraging and 'free rangin' the yard. We have native greenery(dull green), which I call weeds, which the chickens love to tug at. So the back yard is their new domain. And to explain the title question... what do we have on our back porch?

Chickens...off course!!

A farm store just opened about 1/2 a mile from us and we were in it yesterday and we were talking about chickens. I have a friend, who lives in my neighborhood, who is going to get a few chickens. Who knows? Maybe we will too!!!
