"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

Snow!!!!! Update-Photos


Snow-here on the farm!


Farmer and his wife looked out the window at 10:20 pm and realized it was SNOWING, here in southern New Mexico! Farmer and wife go outside to check on animals...brr, Farmer's wife donned her normal desert wear work shoes(Crocs)and headed out.

Feet cold, toes cold, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks, and geese all fine. Will check once again before morning chores(4:30 am).

Did I mention it is SNOWING! Every now and then I long for building snow forts, snowmen, and snowdrifts. Truth is that the snow most likely will be gone soon(an hour or so) and the kids will have missed out.

I am debating on waking up a few so they can say that they saw the snow! But I am too snuggled in my blankets to move so they will have to read about their loss here!

I wondered if it reached you. We have had no snow yet this year. It is raining here now and we have storm warnings out for the day :o( We needed the rain badly.

YAY!! Snow for Christmas!!

Wish we could have had some....

Looks like the animals were wondering what was going on---the sand felt a little different (and cold)!!

The chicken is wondering about all that white stuff on the ground.
