"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

Crazy~crazy~and farm life...

Some news stories of late:

Drudge shared that he paid not a penalty for not having health insurance (Obamacare) but a liberty tax!  Many called Drudge a liar...he is not as he did pay the penalty.  

Hospitals in the UK used 15,000 aborted babies along with the clinical waste in burn material to heat the hospital.  This is the slope I have written about time and time again whenever I write about abortion.   For the record, some of the babies were miscarried babies and the parents did not have any say in what would happen to the remains.  You see, when one life is deemed more valuable than another, EVERYONE is potentially next on being deemed as less in value. 

A carton of eggs in Venezuela is now $23.00 US dollars.  Hmm...Hollywood remains silent.

Oh and on the farm...A war is brewing!  Be warned...dead mouse photo ahead.


Here is one of our gardens.  First off, yes it is that dry here.
Ok...so we lost a few plants to something.  We knew it
wasn't rabbits as we have covered the bottom of the fenced in area with 
chicken wire or metal leftover from the roof.

My sister told me that mice do not like cinnamon.
That is what you see around the mounds.
The milk gallon tops are how we cover the plants 
overnight, just in case it gets too cold.
Bill also set several traps.
We had 100% of our traps filled with rodents.
Some field mice and kangaroo rats.

The creepy things that avoided the traps ended up eating the trapped rodents.

War I told you, war!

This photo has a new trap we have set. 
If you look on the top center you can see the top to one of those 5
gallon jugs for water.  Bill buried this and we put some peanut butter
in it.  Perhaps we will catch some more in here.  Like the roach motel-or at
least we hope.  Rodents will check in...and we will dispose of them!

It seems like every year we have something more to learn as we continue on this journey.
I share many times about my simple life.  I love this life ever so much, BUT it is
hard work.

Jen,

Thank you for taking a stand on the slippery slope of murdering our most precious citizens. It is terrifying how many people think this is fine, "because it is not a baby". God bless.

I don't see what the shock and outrage over the using bodies for heat thing is. If you legalize abortion you are saying that these are not human beings. Therefore it's just medical waste. And therefore it's just something to dispose of. Not a single person who says they are for "choice" can say a thing about this.

It's always something, isn't it? Never a dull moment. Good luck!

Proud-the slope has caused this bizzaro world.

Marica-yes it sure is.
