"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

Truth in TV?

In New Mexico we have many roadrunners. I used to watch the Roadrunner on Saturday mornings and always thought that the roadrunner was made to be too clever and too tricky. But yesterday I realized that everything in the cartoon was depicted as close to reality as possible.

Roadrunners rock!

Dressing for Success

I saw on Fox News a week or so ago, that in this economy where jobs are tight, one needs to dress for success. No more casual Fridays or ill fitting clothing, as the best dressed will give the appearance of the most professional.

Well this all made sense to me, as who am I to question such logic? My employment is here on the farm, and so no more unprofessional clothing. I am working with animals and I darn well better start dressing like this is my profession.

Here are my work boots in a before photo. As you can see I clearly was not motivated, and gave the appearance of a sour dismal employee. When one works with animals one must be vibrant and full of energy and life.

Now as you scroll down, you will notice that I am secure in my job as I, Mrs. Farmwife, have taken to heart the seriousness of proper attire. I am certain I have protected my position for years to come!

So what do you think??

Housing woes? Only for...

Housing market woes? Every day I continue to read of the fallout. I have finally found a ray of sunshine in times like these. On the farm housing options are subjective to behavior, need, and materials.

No building inspectors ensured that the conditions were up to some governmental farm standards. In fact rumor has it that many of the materials were leftover waste from other projects...
{If you look closely-you will notice that this 'window' looks exactly like an old refrigerator shelf, and the walls???}

Yet in times like these, the sunshine? Well the residents here do taste like chicken!
