"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

Farm Definitions

As we have been on the farm for a few years, we have begun to speak the dialect of farm more and more.

Word #1 Coco Pebbles- A round pebble like object found pretty much anywhere on the farm. Not for consumption~please do not ever eat them.  Sheep and goats produce coco pebbles. aka cocoa plops, raisins, and tiny pebbles.

Word #2 Slops- Anything that is or was food in the farm house can become slops. Scrape the dinner plates, peelings, and any old, scary, refrigerator finds into the bucket and toss the slops to the chickens(and dogs, and cats~)

Word #3  Broken-Anything that still has shelf life in spite of its visual or current condition. On a small farm-many items appear far different than their original design~as broken means time for innovation.

Word #4 Morning-an hour or two before the US military begins their day. (it is worth it to check the link!)


This is the end of the Farm Definition Post.
