"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

Where ideas for the farm come from...

The fires in Texas have been on my mind and I have read a good deal about them online. I stumbled across this photo of a wildfire in Texas and at first was in shock of the horizon on fire. Then I noted the patio. This is what I have been saving and gathering rock for. I collect the rocks when we go into the mountains, when I drive around, and even on the farm. I plan on this style flagstone patio around the house and although it is not going to be complete for a few years, I am able to see how it will look as I have photos such as this to be my inspiration.


Although topic today is lighthearted one can negate the issues that a wildfire brings to mind. I write often about preparing for times ahead. A wildfire is something to prepare for, as well as the economic wildfire that is coming fast and furious towards us all. What are you doing to prepare? My advice at this point is to reduce debt, stop buying stuff, eat at home, learn to grow some things, and declutter your life.
