"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

Learning is fun

if you take every moment as a learning opportunity.  I went out to feed the sheep today and found a lovely surprise on the gate.
Now to be clear it is the regurgitated items of some bird.  I can identify a young bird and skeleton of another thing.   

I see the big crows and hawks perched on the front gate all the time and I know they are eating there as I find rabbit remains and such on the ground below.  This was a new one for me, and I suppose some chick full of nests are a bit hungry right now. 

If I take this for an opportunity to ponder the situation, I am not so grossed out.  See~it is a safety mechanism for me~the person who is grossed out so easily!

Feel free to click on the images and help to really dive in and identify what we are looking at!
